Do you have installment financing if i won't be able to get approval from Care Credit?
We tried installment financing in the past for clients, and unfortunately, it just didn't work out (people didn't pay) and we had to stop doing that. But, we do have other options that have worked for clients. Care credit will approve you if you have a relative or even a friend co sign for you. We have also worked with clients where they have had a friend or relative pay with their credit card or care credit card, and then they repaid their friend. In special circumstances we will take a hold check for a period of time if it is approved by telecheck. Even if these methods fail, we will work with clients to try to provide the best care possible with the budget they have to spend. We understand that sometimes it can be difficult to make ends meet. If you would like to try to set something up you can call us at 918-478-9238 and talk to our receptionist to see what can be worked out. I hope this helps.
Hi. Im mindy. I just adopted a dog. But i could not get much info on her. And im wondering what am i going to have to do when im going ro do for her vet visit. So i can make sure she is healthy and makes sure she is taken cared of.
That is great that you have adopted a new dog. She is lucky to get a good home! It's OK if you don't have a lot of information about your new dog for the veterinarian. The vet will perform an examination to make sure everything checks out OK. There will also be a test done to find out if she has intestinal parasites. Depending upon her age she may need a heartworm test and will need to get started on heartworm prevention. Your vet will also discuss vaccinations. Since you do not know if she has been vaccinated, then your vet will recommend that she get vaccinated. If she is a puppy, she will need a seres of vaccinations. Your vet will also discuss diet and will answer any questions you may have about house training or other issues you may think of. So! No problem that you do not have previous information about your new dog. Your vet will still be able to help you with everything that your dog needs. I don't know if you are local, or if she is a puppy, but we have discounted puppy packages and will be more than happy to help you with your new dog! Have fun!

My dog was prescribed apoquel for serious itching but I stopped giving her the apoquel at the last pill is the harmful to my dog to not continue treatment my vet said she needs checked because I didnt continue the daily recommended doses
Your vet is likely wanting to check on the itching and make sure that your dog is doing better. Maybe the doctor wants to prescribe a medication to maintain the condition.
What can I do to stop weight gain while my dog is on Apoquel? He needs to lose weight not gain it?
Apoquel should not make your dog gain weight. Apoquel is a drug that has been recently introduced to treat Pruritus (itching) associated with skin inflammation that occurs with certain types of allergies seen in dogs. You may be confusing Apoquel with Cortisone or Steroids which has benn commonly used to treat allergies. Using cortisone orally( long term and at high dosages) can cause weight gain as well as other health problems. This is one of the reasons that Apoquel looks to be a great alternative in treating dogs that have itchiness associated with allergies- Apoquel can be used long term without the side effects seen in steroid use. The most common side effects reported with the use of Apoquel is vomiting and/or diarrhea. Apoquel should not be used in dogs younger than 12 months. It also should not be used with certain other medical conditions. Hope this gives you the information needed. Ask your veterinarian about special diets for weigh loss and an exercise program based on the patients health and any other medical conditions.
My rescue kitten is 3 months old and will get rabies shot next week at Grand Prairie Animal center where she was adopted. What age is best for declawing her front claws? Her new family, 2 older cats have no front claws. Also how long before she can go back to kitty litter and also not be under observation at home during the day?
Our clinic offers laser declaw which is much easier on the patient and their family. 3 months is a safe age but we also consider size and health. Some places prefer to remain with other methods of declawing. The recuperation times will be different for each method. You can call your veterinarian and they will go over all of this with you on a personalized level. Congratulations on your new kitty!
I caught a mouse in my house. How do you tell if it has a Disease and how to treat it if it does...
If you are referring to a non-domesticated mouse you should call your local veterinarians and ask if they see them. Some will not handle them due to the diseases it exposes to staff. The only way to know if it has diseases is to test for them. Best of luck.
My pet is running fever I think from his teeth he weighs only three pounds how can I get his fever down I gave him antiobitics earlier what can I do Dont want him to die he looks really sick my boss said we will bring him in the morning
There isn't anything you can give to bring the fever down. Be sure you do not give any over the counter medication such as Tylenol or ibuprofen as these are dangerous to use in dogs and cats. I don't know if you have a dog or a cat but you should not give these to either of them. I'm so sorry your pet is not doing well your best bet since there's no way of knowing what is going on is to get him to your that as soon as possible.
I have a Jack Russell beagle,a very active dog one night he just started crying every time he would take a few steps I don't know if something like a spider bit him now he's very motionless and and walks round and round likes he's out of it
I'm so sorry to hear about your dog. It would be impossible to say what is causing the symptoms you see. Sometimes you can kind of tell what is going on by just hearing about the symptoms, but in this cause the symptoms you are seeing are vague and many different illnesses, diseases, toxins or poisons can cause those kind of symptoms- even something as simple as falling off a couch and hitting his head. I would definitely take him in to see your vet (or an emergency clinic) as soon as you can so that he can get examined. My guess is that the vet will recommend some blood work and possibly other diagnostics because the symptoms could fit many different problems. It just depends upon what he or she find on the physical examination. I know how difficult it is to see them ill. Hopefully, it is something that will easily resolve with the right treatment. Luckily, we have more equipment and diagnostic tools in veterinary medicine than ever before- which really helps us to treat our patients. I hope everything turns out OK.
My dog hurt her leg maybe a disloctaed shoulder, how much would a vet visit be?
I am so sorry to hear about your dog. It is late enough that pretty much where you go it will be emergency hours. Our emergency fee is $98 until 11pm, after 11 pm it goes to @125.00. This is for the examination during emergency hours. Any additional diagnostics would be in addition to the exam fee. The doctor would look at your dog to try to determine, just from feeling the leg, what is going on. The doctor will discuss with your if he or she thinks that xrays would be needed. The doctor will not do any type of treatment or diagnostic test with out first discussing the cost with you. I hope everything turns out ok!
