Pet Health Services:

Annual Wellness Exams for cats and dogs are very valuable in insuring the longevity of your pet.

During your pet’s annual exam, Dr. Laura Rohe will check and examine all body systems, and explain what she finds. All necessary vaccinations and blood tests will be carried out at this time. Information and products on dental care and parasite control will be dispensed.

Vaccines:  Our hospital provides a variety of vaccines for dogs, cats, rabbits and ferrets. We encourage you to discuss with Dr. Rohe the different vaccines, your pet’s lifestyle, travel plans and history to determine the best vaccine protocol for your pet.

Diagnostic services:  

Ultrasound services are available for diagnosis of pregnancy and identifying disease conditions involving the internal organs. Ultrasound is also used to facilitate biopsies and fluid collection when needed.

Surgical care/anesthesia: We utilize the safest available anesthetics to provide an extra margin of safety, especially for our older or high-risk patients. Using the most modern equipment, the patient's vital signs are monitored during all anesthetic procedures.  IV catheters are placed and your pet is given fluids during certain procedures.

Minneota Veterinary Clinic offers a full range of surgical services. Minneota Veterinary Clinic offers a wide variety of surgical options to minimize your pets stress and pain levels, while making recovery move more quickly and smoothly.

Patients that undergo anesthesia and surgery at our clinic are given pre-anesthetic blood tests to help minimize the risk of complications. Your pet's safety and comfort is our priority. Gas anesthesia is used on all of our surgical cases, so your pet will also have a breathing tube placed in his/her trachea (windpipe) to deliver oxygen and the anesthetic.

We assure that your pet wakes up in a warm and comforting environment. Pain medication is administered during surgery and offered as a take home medication after surgery.

Dentistry:  Our dental services include teeth cleaning with an ultrasonic scaler and polishing, tooth extractions and minor oral surgery. Dental disease can lead to damage of the liver, kidneys, and heart valves.  Routine dental care, the use of Oravet Chews and brushing is recommended for dogs and cats.  Ask us to show you how.

Permanent identification (Microchipping):  Our hospital is able to place a small microchip (about the size of a grain of rice) underneath the skin of your pet, between the shoulder blades, to allow for permanent identification. In the unfortunate case that your pet is lost or stolen, this allows for identification and recovery.  The microchip can be detected by a scanner used by veterinary hospitals, rescue groups, humane societies and animal control departments. It is a simple procedure that can be performed during a routine appointment.

Pharmacy:  We maintain a complete inventory of pharmaceuticals, vitamins, shampoos, flea and tick control products and heartworm preventatives to meet the needs of your pet. We also carry a full line of prescription and routine diets.

Nutritional Counseling:  We believe that high quality food and treats are essential to the health, longevity and vitality of our dogs and cats. With all the pet foods available these days it can be hard to make a choice on what to feed your pets.  Our staff is trained to help you make an informed decision on what to feed your beloved family member.  We carry a wide range of prescription and non-prescription pet foods.  We are happy to discuss the various food choices that are best for your pet's health, age and medical condition. There are many formulations that are designed to help manage certain health conditions, such as diabetes, renal failure, heart disease and arthritis.

Weight Management and Weight Loss: Keeping your pet at a healthy weight is an important part of their overall health care plan and can add years to your pet's life. A pet that is overweight or underweight may be experiencing an illness and may be more susceptible to disease and injury. Obesity is a complicating factor in heart conditions, arthritis, and may predispose your pet to diabetes. Please give us a call today if you would like to talk about nutrition, diet or weight management with one of our staff or to make an appointment for your pet.

Behavior Counseling: Although behavior problems can be extremely frustrating for owners and lead to the deterioration of the bond between owners and their pet, it is important to remember that there are two key components to a behavioral program: prevention of behavioral problems in young animals; and treatment of existing behavior problems in animals of all ages.

Our goal is to keep pets a valuable member of their family by providing professional services and educating owners about animal behavior. Once an owner understands why their pet may exhibit a certain behavior, treatment plans (that may or may not include medication) can be started and the bond between pet and owner can be restored and strengthened. For specialized or extreme cases that may require advanced behavioral training, we can also help find a board-certified veterinary behaviorist.

Payment Options:

Payment is expected and is due at the time of services.  We do not bill out for services rendered. All major credit/debit cards are accepted; including Mastercard, Visa, Discover, and American Express. We also accept checks and cash for payment.

For special circumstances we offer Care Credit. If you don’t currently possess a Care Credit card, we can arrange for your application for the card. This allows you to break your payments down over a 6 month period interest free. Applications are available at the clinic and online at CareCredit.com. Approval is generally within 5 minutes.

House calls and Drop-Offs

House calls: For patients who don’t travel well and become stressed, or for clients who are unable to visit the clinic due to mobility issues, we are happy to offer house calls.

We also offer in-home euthanasia for your and your pet’s comfort. This allows for a more private setting for you and your family during this difficult time.

Drop- Off Appointments: We offer drop-off appointments at no additional charge. Whether for your convenience or ours, this allows you to get all of your tasks done during your busy schedule. You can drop off your pet for routine care and vaccinations, as well as for evaluation or observation for illness.

A complete history is obtained either over the phone or at drop-off. You will be contacted via phone or email regarding testing and treatment.
