We're pleased to offer the following services at Lone Tree Animal Care Center:
Wellness and Preventive Care
Whether you have an immediate concern with your pet's health or require an annual preventive wellness examination, we are happy to speak to you and help you schedule an appointment. We see clients on both a walk-in and scheduled basis, but it is better for you and your pet to call us and schedule an appointment in advance. Our talented clinical staff can also answer questions regarding the examination process and whether your health concern requires a trip to our office. Our receptionists and team will attempt to accommodate all requests to the best of our ability. Emergencies are accepted anytime our clinic is open. Contact us by phone at +1 (402) 389-3356, through our website, or email to schedule an appointment today!
We offer clean, comfortable boarding facilities for your canine and feline and provide relaxing music and Felaway plugins in both spaces to keep your pets relaxed and comfortable. Our cat condos are state of the art and provide a relaxing environment for your feline family member, and our dog runs are safe and comfortable for your pet.
Preventive care is important in maintaining your pet's long term health. Proper vaccination is vital in protecting them against harmful diseases such as Lyme and Parvo, and in some cases legally required (e.g. Rabies). Contact us to schedule an appointment to make sure your pet has the proper vaccinations to protect them against the risks they will face in their local environments.
Losing a pet is a scary experience for both pets and their owners. Microchip identification is the most reliable way to reunite lost pets with their owners. We can provide a microchip for your pet on their next visit to make it easier to reunite you with them if they ever get lost.
Dental care is an important part of your pet's overall health. Studies show that 50% of all dogs and cats have some form of periodontal disease, and 80% in pets three years or older. If left untreated, periodontal disease can cause infection, pain, and tooth loss over time. We recommend an annual veterinary dental examination for all pets. The examination and cleaning process is very similar to human cleanings, except we use anesthesia to properly and safely examine and clean your pet's teeth. Occasionally this also requires tooth extraction, which we perform in-house as a last resort and provide pain medications for in-home after care.
Parasites such as fleas and ticks can be very detrimental to your pet's health. Preventive measures should be taken year round to protect your pet and your family from the diseases carried by parasites common to the Midwest and other areas of the country. Heartworms, carried by mosquitos, can even be fatal if not detected and treated properly. We can provide counseling regarding the proper protections necessary to match your pet's lifestyle.
Diet and Nutrition
Proper diet and nutrition can help your pet fight against disease, maintain a proper weight, and promote the overall well-being of your pet. We can help you make the right dietary choices for your pet to maintain their long-term health and appropriate weight. We can also help with dietary issues such as the detection of food (and other) allergies that can result in excessive itching and hair loss.
Emergency & Urgent Care
We have a veterinarian and personnel on duty six days a week who are trained and equipped to handle any urgent care needs for your pet. Usually an emergency team consists of at least one veterinarian and several technicians working together to save a pet's life. Emergencies can be things such as accidental ingestion of rat poison, hit by car, and chocolate ingestion. If you ever feel that your pet needs emergency treatment do not hesitate to call or come in immediately.
We are also available for urgent care when the condition is not life-threatening. If you feel your pet needs to be seen before you are able to get an appointment, our veterinarians will work to "squeeze" you in between scheduled appointments. When you arrive, our receptionists will be able to give you an estimate on how long you may have to wait in order to be seen.
