We're pleased to offer the following services at Acadian Oaks Pet Clinic:
New Puppy/Kitten Exam
A thorough exam is an important first step in starting your little one on the road to a long, healthy life. We will also discuss all aspects of health care and any other concerns you might have, such as behavior and training.
Annual Exams and Semi-annual Exams
Complete physical examinations help us diagnose underlying diseases that might not be showing obvious clinical signs. If a disease or condition is diagnosed early in its course, appropriate medications, procedures, and/or diets can be instituted, potentially enabling better management of the problem. All pets should have an annual exam, and pets 7 years of age and older should be examined carefully every 6 months. Pets age approximately 7 years to our 1 year, and an every-6-month exam for a dog or cat is equivalent to an exam every 3 years for a person.
We have laboratory equipment and supplies on site for crucial diagnostics, such as blood chemistry panels, complete blood counts, urinalyses, stool tests, heartworm/FeLV/FIV tests, radiology, EKG, pulse oximetry, and more. We send fine needle biopsy specimens and tissue specimens to board certified veterinary pathologists for assessment.
We offer dental cleaning procedures and products to help keep your pet's teeth healthy. Problems in the mouth can lead to problems in other organs of the body such as the heart, liver, and kidneys.
We stock a wide range of medications and medical diets to help prevent and treat illnesses and chronic conditions such as arthritis, kidney disease, heart problems, and gastrointestinal disease.
We are a full-service clinic equipped to help your pet; we perform surgical procedures such as ovariohysterectomies (spays), neuters, tumor excisions, and other surgeries as needed.
Vaccinations help prevent common bacterial and viral diseases of dogs and cats, some of which are contagious to people. We will design a personalized vaccine program for your pet depending on specific risk factors such as age and lifestyle. Rabies vaccination is required by parish and state law. East Baton Rouge Parish requires every dog and cat to have a tag and license.
With its lush subtropical climate, South Louisiana is "parasite paradise." We will design a program to keep parasites such as fleas, ticks, and intestinal worms under control, taking into account your pet's special risk factors. Good parasite control helps protect pets and their people!
We offer Hill's Science Diets, Hill's Prescription Diets, Royal Canin, and Purina Veterinary Diets. These premium foods are the best available, consistently formulated from the finest ingredients. A high plane of nutrition has been shown to add years to pets' lives.
We were one of the first veterinary hospitals in Louisiana to provide microchipping services. Microchip implants have reunited many lost pets with their families and can also serve as proof of ownership.
