When you are looking for a veterinary care clinic for your pet, you should be able to count on superior care and excellent service. At Cahaba Valley Animal Clinic, we have assembled an expert team of veterinary professionals to bring you the best possible healthcare for your pet. We have a state-of-the-art veterinary facility that is clean, comfortable, and efficient. We are also one of the few places in the area that offers ultrasounds as well as care for exotic pets and birds.
Call us today at 205-980-0078 to schedule an appointment at a time that is convenient for you.
When you come in to our vet clinic, make sure to bring in any medical history you have for your pet. We recommend keeping a journal of your pet’s health throughout his or her life, including behavioral shifts and a list of medications. If you have any such information, share it with our team so they can provide the most effective care for your pet. If not, let us know anything that you think will be important in regards to your pet’s health. Our veterinarians will work with whatever information you have.
You should take your pet in for a check-up once per year. An ordinary check-up consists of a full physical exam and may include teeth and gum cleaning, if needed. Our veterinarians will check the health of your pet from head to tail. We also provide preventive veterinary care that will help prevent common illnesses from sneaking up on your pet. We encourage our senior pets to receive a full work-up including a physical exam, blood work, and a nutritional assessment to help your pet age gracefully and happily.
In some circumstances or emergency situations, our doctors will refer you to a specialist who has advanced expertise in specific areas, such as internal medicine or surgery.
If you have any questions, please call us at 205-980-0078 and we will answer them to the best of our ability. We look forward to hearing from you!
