GENERAL CARE

As a pet owner, you want the best care for your pet. The foundation for great care is a solid understanding of your pet’s life stages and annual care that enhances their lives throughout each stage. At Butte Oroville Veterinary Hospital, vaccines are individually recommended based on your pet’s health, history, environment and exposure to risk. Furthermore, we are always seeking more effective vaccines based on current research.

MICROCHIP

Microchip identification is the absolute best way to reconnect with your best friend should you become separated. A tiny microchip, about the size of a grain of rice, is placed right underneath the skin in between the shoulder blades. Each chip has a unique identification that is read by a scanner. These microchip identification numbers are stored on a national database that allows for a quick return of your pet. We offer special pricing on this essential safety precaution as we cannot imagine any of our patients without it.

 

NUTRITION

Butte Oroville Veterinary Hospital offers a state-of-the-art Nutrition Center complete with prescription diets recommended for your pet.

 

SPAY AND NEUTER

Spays and neuters are surgical procedures conducted under general anesthesia typically performed on pets after about six months of age. Both procedures help prevent surprise pregnancies and unwanted sexual behaviors, but also prevent diseases, and other health problems that can develop later in life. Since spays and neuters are price-sensitive procedures that new pet owners shop around for, it’s important to understand the standard of care often varies between hospitals. We don’t decrease our standards for these heavy subsidized procedures as surgery of any kind warrants the highest quality care and attention available.

At Butte Oroville Veterinary Hospital, we promise the highest standard of care to our clients using the latest technology, which allows us to prevent infections, manage pain and provide clear instructions for owners to adopt at home for a quick recovery.

Spaying or neutering your pet will benefit their health.

VACCINES

Immunizing your pet is a crucial preventative step towards well-being. Vaccines help protect dogs and cats from potentially deadly diseases such as Parvovirus, Distemper, Rabies and Leptospirosis, Canine influenza, Panleukopenia and Feline Leukemia. Since all treatments are customized, our doctors can help identify when and what vaccines are best for your pet – some are most critical when your pet is young while others, such as boosters, are shots to continue into adult and senior years.

Butte Oroville Veterinary Hospital is committed to offering low-price, weekly preventative care clinics for vaccines and diagnostic testing. We also promise that our vaccines are properly handled, stored, refrigerated and professionally administered. Specific testing for diseases like heartworm is offered at a reduced cost at our preventative clinics, due to the prevalence in our community.

 

EXTERNAL PARASITES

In Butte County, fleas, ticks, mites, and lice are the major parasites, all of which can cause major problems ranging from allergic dermatitis and otitis to Ehrlichia (a blood parasite). Our pharmacy offers excellent medications to control these parasites.

 

HEARTWORM DISEASE

The North Valley has the highest rates of heartworm disease cases in California. Heartworm disease is a serious and potentially fatal condition caused by parasitic worms living in the arteries of the lungs and heart and can be contracted by dogs, cats, wolves, foxes, ferrets and (in rare instances) humans. Heartworms are classified as filarids, a species of roundworm. By treating your pet every month, heartworm disease is preventable. All dogs and cats should be on monthly heartworm medications – visit our pharmacy tab to learn more and compare prices.

LABORATORY

The diagnostic equipment at our facility is modern, allowing us access to accumulate and compare data in real time so that we can provide answers promptly. Between our in-house medical capabilities and access to a national network of veterinary specialists, your pet has a network of professionals to provide an accurate prognosis.

Our cutting-edge diagnostic equipment allows us to access the total organ system and provides the most accurate understanding of current pathology that allows us to administer immediate treatment. By pinpointing the problem during the first visit, you save critical time and costs associated with multiple visits. Many of our results are obtained in under 24 hours.
