Promoting Your Pet's Health
Kipling Veterinary Hospital and Wellness Center offers a variety of services to promote your pet's health.
We strive to provide the highest quality diagnostics and treatment for your pet. Getting a detailed history from you, coupled with a comprehensive physical exam, allows our highly trained staff to formulate a plan ensuring your pets' best care.
Aids to Diagnosis
An x-ray allows us to see things we can't rely on a physical exam. Our state-of-the-art, digital x-ray equipment minimizes the energy required to get the best images.
An x-ray image allows our doctors to diagnose the internal health of your pet.
Our complete laboratory includes parasitology (fecal exam and skin scrapings), cytology (cell studies), urinalysis, and blood cell/blood chemistry studies. Our doctors and technical staff are highly trained, and our laboratory diagnostic tools provide you and your pet's diagnosis.
Looking good is just one of the benefits of maintaining your pet on a regular grooming schedule. We all like it when our furry friends look, feel and smell wonderful, but did you know many times a groomer can discover underlying health issues.
Our 5-star pet resort is quite deluxe. The feline and canine quarters are separate, so our feline guests are not disturbed by their canine neighbors, and our canine guests are happy with their own neighbors. We provide all the essentials, including LOTS of love. Our resort is veterinary supervised, making sure all our guests have a healthy, pleasant stay.
Jefferson County Licensing
All dogs over four months of age are required to be licensed in Jefferson County. The annual licensing fee is $20.00 for spayed/neutered or unaltered dogs. We are an approved licensing location and can license your dog on the spot with proof of current rabies vaccination from your veterinarian and proof of spay/neuter.
Humane Society Exams
We provide one free physical exam up to 10 days after you adopt a pet from one of our local humane societies. Any additional services, such as vaccines, tests, or treatments, are additional costs.
When you are traveling and need a health certificate, our doctors can examine your pet and make sure all is complete, so they are healthy and safe for travel. Note: When flying with a pet, please make sure you contact the airlines you will be flying with for specific requirements. Each airline may vary.
To help recoup some of your pet's veterinary expenses, you can enroll them in pet health insurance. There are several options available through several different companies (VPI, Pets Best, ASPCA, and Trupanion, just to name a few). If you decide to go with pet insurance, it will depend on what plan you get, how much they cover, and what the monthly premium is. No matter what company or plan you decide to go with, you are responsible for paying your pet's charges at the time of services and then submit a claim form through your insurance company for reimbursement.
