Easton Animal Hospital
We board animals at Easton Animal Hospital! Dogs must be up to date with their rabies, distempter, bordetella, and influenza vaccinations, as well as had a negative fecal exam within the last year. Dogs are let out in our fenced in area to stretch their legs and relieve themselves three times a day, except Sundays when they are let out twice. We recommend you bring your dog's food to eliminate the risk of gastrointestinal issues when they are here, but we do carry Royal Canin's Gastrointestinal Low Fat Diet Dry that can be fed at no extra charge. Cats have the option of boarding in our treatment area or in a secluded area, depending on their personality. All cats must be up to date with rabies and distemper vaccinations, and have a negative stool sample. We do carry Royal Canin Gastrointestinal Dry Food for Felines that can be fed at no extra charge. For both cats and dogs, canned food can also be fed at an additional charge.
Spaying and neutering your pets is the best way to not only prevent accidental litters, but also the development of certain cancers. We recommend canine spays around 6-8 months of age, before your female goes into her first heat cycle. This decreases her risk of mammary cancer and eliminates her risk of uterine cancer of developing pyometra, a life-threatening condition. Neutering males eliminates the risk of testicular cancer and reduces the risk of prostate cancer.
Grooming is done by Allison Repple, an experienced groomer that will work with your dog or cat to make the experience as comfortable and rewarding as possible for them. Your pet is given a bath, nails are clipped, ears cleaned, anal glands expressed if needed, and your pet is trimmed to your specifications.
Oral health is important to you pet's well-being. Tooth brushing is the best way to lengthen the amount of time until your pet is in need of a dental cleaning. We are more than happy to show you how to brush your pet's teeth if you are interested in learning. Dental cleanings are a routine procedure that require your pet to be anesthetized for us to take dental x-rays and properly clean their teeth.
Every patient is different, so every surgery is different. Whether it is a same-day procedure or if your pet will be staying overnight at our hospital, we care for them as if they were our own pets.
Drop-offs for surgeries, including dentals, are between 9 and 9:30 am, the doctor will preform a pre-surgical exam, and your pet will undergo the procedure around 12 pm that day. You will be called after we have completed the procedure and will be given a pick-up time later that day.
After performing a physical exam, our doctors may recommend X-rays are performed in-house and results are instantaneous. Blood work can be done in-house for results within half an hour, or can be sent out and results are received the next day. The doctor will always call to discuss the results with you. An ultrasound can also be performed in house, but sometimes in certain cases we can schedule a board-certified specialist in internal medicine to perform ultrasounds on a different date than your appointment, still within our hospital.
We care about your pet's well being at Easton Animal Hospital. Our doctors perform a full psychical exam in the room with you present, and will answer any questions you may have. All of our technicians and assistants are knowledgeable about animal handling and will take care to insure your pet is handled appropriately, but more importantly, with compassion.
