What We Offer
Our Doctor’s offer a variety of services including: Surgery, Dentistry, Laboratory, Preventive Medical Care, EKG & Digital X-Ray, Therapy Laser, Nutritional Counseling, Internal & External Parasite Control Programs, and many more!
Boarding services are also available to our clients. We require that animals who board with us have all their immunizations up-to-date. Summer months and holidays are busy times for boarding and grooming, so we advise making reservations as far in advance as possible. Boarders are admitted and discharged only during regular office hours.
We provide complete grooming services for our clients. We recommend a regular grooming schedule for the pet’s comfort and to prevent skin and hair problems and disease. In addition, under more extreme circumstances, we are happy to suggest two-fold flea and tick programs that combine control of the pests on the animal and in the home. Please call in advance for an appointment. We do require that all pets being groomed be up to date on their immunizations.
We're pleased to offer the following services at Krichel Animal Hospital:
Our appointment book is computerized, which allows us to efficiently make appointments for you and your pet. Our receptionists and team will attempt to accommodate all requests to the best of our ability. Emergencies are accepted anytime our clinic is open. If you feel you have an emergency with your pet, please call us or come in immediately. If possible it is best to call before coming in so that a staff member can advise you on your particular emergency.
We have a veterinarian and personnel on duty six days a week who are trained and equipped to handle any urgent care your pet has. Usually an emergency team consists of at least one veterinarian and several technicians working together to save a pet's life. Emergencies can be things such as accidental ingestion of rat poison, hit by car, and chocolate ingestion. If you ever feel that your pet needs emergency treatment do not hesitate to call or come in immediately.
We are also available for urgent care when the condition is not life-threatening. If you feel your pet needs to be seen before you are able to get an appointment, our veterinarians will work to "squeeze" you in between scheduled appointments. When you arrive, our receptionists will be able to give you an estimate on how long you may have to wait in order to be seen.
