Compassionate Veterinary Care

We’re here for the pets in Springfield, TN.

APPOINTMENT

We are dedicated to partnering with you in giving your pets the care they deserve.

Your pets are always there for you, and we know you are there for them as well. It is our goal to educate and empower you to give them the longest and healthiest life possible.

Wellness Exams

Each cat and dog has different needs. Are they an indoor pet, an outdoor pet, or both? Are they around other pets on a regular basis, such as in a kennel, at the groomer’s, or visiting family? Do you live in a country or area where wildlife is present? All of these factors determine the needs of your individual pet, from vaccinations to preventive products like heartworm and flea medications. We will evaluate your situation and develop a plan that best protects your cat or dog from every pest and problem.

Puppy and Dog Vaccines

Canine vaccinations have been medically proven to combat many preventable diseases and illnesses so it is extremely important to stay current with your dog’s vaccination schedule.

Digital Imaging (X-Rays)

Digital radiography can be quite helpful in the diagnosis of many health problems. Radiographs allow the evaluation of bone structures and soft tissue structures in your pet. Results are available quickly and samples can be taken of problem areas, often in the same procedure. Many pets allow radiography without anesthesia or sedation.

Diagnostics/In-House Lab

Robertson County Animal Clinic utilizes a full service in-house laboratory to provide diagnostic information to our doctors, including blood chemistries, complete blood counts, thyroid screening, cortisol testing, blood glucose monitoring, urine evaluation, culture for infection, and parasite screening.

Dental Treatments

Dental care is of the utmost importance for your pet. Dental disease is painful, can cause other severe systemic infections, and can be a quality of life issue. Many dogs and cats have significant dental disease by the time they are three. We perform a wide variety of dental procedures, including prophylactic ultrasonic scaling, periodontal therapies, extractions, and oral surgery.

Things to Know Before Your Surgery or Dental Cleaning Appointment
1. Your pet should not eat anything after 10pm the night before surgery. Water is fine, just take that up first thing in the morning.
2. Your pet will need to be dropped off for surgery between 7:30am-8:30am. You will meet with a veterinary assistant who will go over your consent form and answer any questions you may have.
3. Let us know before your appointment if you need an estimate. We try to get these as accurate as possible, but every surgery and dental can present other issues that we will need to take care of so remember these are only estimates and your final costs may be lower or higher.
4. We try to send all surgery patients home the same day because we do not have any staff here after hours. In rare cases that we do recommend that your pet stay overnight, there is no additional charge.
5. We do require that all dogs be up to date on their Rabies and Bordetella (kennel cough) vaccines and cats must be up to date on their Rabies. If they are not and you do not provide proof that they have received the vaccine from another veterinarian office, we will give the vaccines while they are here and you will be charged.
6. We will call you after your pet’s surgery is done to give you an update and to let you know what the earliest pick up time will be. We want to make sure they recover from the anesthesia so they usually don’t get released until after 3pm.

Surgery and Medicine

We understand that surgery can be a source of anxiety for you and your family. That’s why it’s important to trust the people who will be taking care of your pet. Our experienced team of doctors and staff make it their number one priority to focus on pain management and patient safety, and we use the most current surgical practices to ensure your pet receives the best veterinary care.

Senior Pet Care

Our goal at Robertson County Animal Clinic is to support you in maintaining optimum health for your pets in all stages of life, including as your pet begins to age.

Pets can be susceptible to some of the same age-related illnesses and diseases as humans. Diseases such as diabetes, kidney diseases, heart disease, and joint/bone disease are not uncommon in older pets. Pets also age at an accelerated rate due to their shorter lifespans. According to the American Veterinary Medical Association, a 12-year-old cat is the equivalent of 64 human years, and a medium-sized 12-year-old dog is the equivalent of 69 human years.

Some signs that your pet may be experiencing age-related disease include:

  • Poor hair/coat
  • Increased thirst
  • Increased urination
  • Decreased appetite
  • Having accidents in the home/crate
  • Coughing or issues with breathing
  • Weight loss or gain

If your pet is experiencing any of these symptoms or other symptoms that are of concern to you, please contact our clinic. Our veterinarians are here to help you assess how your pet is aging.

One of the tools we have available for assessing age-related disease or illness is our Senior Profile. The profile is composed of comprehensive blood work, and in some cases, will include a urinalysis. Results of the profile will provide our veterinarians with a better overall picture of your pet’s metabolic and organ health. Our veterinarians can also provide guidance for you and your senior pet on diet & nutrition, weight control, maintaining mobility, and understanding changes in behavior.

Please contact our clinic to learn more about our Senior Profile and other services available for your aging pet.

Laser Therapy

Laser therapy helps heal tissues by improving blood flow, reducing pain, releasing endorphins, and repairing the tissues through the use of light. Most surgical patients receive laser therapy as part of their surgical procedure to speed healing and reduce pain and inflammation. Laser therapy can also be used for wounds, inflammatory lesions, and chronic ailments such as arthritis.

Client Education

With how vast the internet is, it’s so tough to find reliable information. Our team will help provide you with the most trustworthy veterinary resources!

Heartworm Testing and Prevention

Heartworm disease is a serious and potentially fatal disease. It is caused by foot-long worms (Heartworms) that live in the heart and lungs causing severe lung disease, heart failure, and damage to other organs in the body.

Intestinal Parasites

An Intestinal Parasite Screening, or Fecal, provides an opportunity to check your pet for
intestinal parasites. Parasites can cause anything from mild irritation to serious illness,
so it is important to include intestinal parasite screening as part of your pet’s regular
healthcare regimen.

Boarding

Robertson County Animal Clinic offers boarding for both dogs and cats. Reservations are required. All pets must be up to date on vaccines in order to be eligible for boarding; If your pet has had vaccines elsewhere, we will require documentation of those vaccines.

Dogs will require Rabies, DHPP (Distemper), and Bordetella vaccines for boarding. Dogs are housed in secure concrete kennels and are provided with soft bedding for sleeping and resting. Each dog is let out 2-3 times per day into an individual run for exercise and elimination. Hill’s Science Diet Dry Food is included in the cost of boarding. If your dog is on a special diet or has a sensitive stomach, we recommend that you provide food for their stay. If any medications are required, we ask that you provide the medications for us to dispense as directed.

Cats will require Rabies and FVRCP (Distemper) vaccines for boarding. Cats are housed in “condos” and, depending on capacity, may have access to a second level to allow them to jump and climb. Hill’s Science Diet Dry Food is included in the cost of boarding. If your cat is on a special diet or has a sensitive stomach, we recommend that you provide food for their stay. If any medications are required, we ask that you provide the medications for us to dispense as directed.

Please note: The clinic will provide bedding and bowls for your pet, as we cannot guarantee that personal pet items will be returned.

Pets may be dropped off any time Monday through Friday, between 7:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. (except between 12:00 – 1:00 p.m. when the clinic is closed for lunch), and on Saturday from 7;30 a.m. – 1:00 p.m. The clinic is not open on Sundays.

During their stay with us, our staff will give your pet(s) personalized attention. During business hours, your pet will be monitored throughout the day, with any concerns being immediately brought to the attention of our doctors.
