Additional Services Provided at Blue Lake Animal Care Center
As the prescribing veterinarian for your pet’s medications, we can provide a seamless transition from our exam to medication. This means your pet will receive the right medication, at the right dose, in a timely fashion. We will also be able to guide you on to use the medication and gauge its effectiveness. We want you to feel confident that all the medications we dispense were obtained from safe, reliable U.S. sources and stored correctly.
We maintain a complete inventory of pharmaceuticals, vitamins, dental care supplements, shampoos, flea and tick control products, and heartworm preventatives to meet your pet’s needs. We also carry a full line of prescription diets. If your pet requires a prescription diet we do not carry, we can easily order it for you.
Ensuring you have convenient and timely access to competitively priced medications is an important aspect of our veterinary practice.
Refills are easy, too. Simply give us a call or CLICK HERE to request a refill request. Please allow at least 24 hours for us to process your refill.
Nail trims aren’t always easy. In fact, it can be an art. Having the right training and equipment can make all the difference. We strive to perform nail trims with as little stress as possible. Sometimes, this may mean giving them medicine before they come in to ease anxiety. That’s OK! If you need assistance in safely cutting your pet’s nails, give us a call.
Dogs and cats require written health certificates for interstate or international travel. Dr. Powell is accredited through the USDA and can provide you and your pet assistance in complying with travel requirements. Completing an international health certificate can be a very complex process depending on the destination. We encourage you to visit https://www.aphis.usda.gov/aphis/pet-travel for more information on your pet’s requirements for travel. Be sure to research this far in advance, as certain areas such as Hawaii and Australia can require these services greater than 4 months to complete all requirements needed for entrance.
Dr. Buzby’s Toe Grips
Blue Lake Animal Care Center is proud to be a retailer for these helpful toe grips. These are made of rubber and slip over your pet’s claws to help with traction on hardwood floors and tile in the house, and icy winter conditions outside. We have found these to be a useful tool in many dogs, especially senior pets, amputees, and recent recovering surgical patients. We can apply them in a few minutes here, or send them with you to do in the comfort of your home.
After pet loss, we know it’s important to make careful, thoughtful arrangements for their remains. We use a trusted company in Reno that has been in business for many years, and use them for our own pets. We can arrange remains burial or cremation to whatever suits your needs, and we handle transportation to and from the crematorium back to our office. They offer a grief and support group for counseling pet loss at no charge.
