Wellness and preventative care
The health of your pet is of utmost importance to you and to us. We offer a wide range of wellness and preventive care services including physical exams, vaccines, vaccine titers, routine blood work screens, and much, much more. Our caring staff would be happy to discuss all of the options with you.
Our philosophy is that our patients must be healthy and happy. Dental care is a very important part of this. We use State-of- the- art dental equipment and procedures in order to always achieve this goal.
We perform Progesterone assays and Vaginal Cytology to assess timing for breeding, Artificial Insemination, Pregnancy Ultrasound or radiography, and should the need arise, Cesarean Sections. With Doctor Charlie’s long term experience with Bulldogs, c-sections are a common procedure.
Every patient is an individual. Therefore, no patient ever fits the textbook definition of an illness or injury. That makes Stockton Veterinary Hospital different. Every appointment, every test, every discussion is tailored to your pet, from wellness visits to endocrine disease to everything else.
