Services Anacapa Animal Hospital Offers

At Anacapa Animal Hospital, we believe preventative pet care is the best way to enhance your pet's health and longevity. We also believe that each pet is a family member and an individual with unique medical, surgical, dental and nutritional needs.

As a member of your family, we want your pet to remain a loving part of your life for as long as possible. Our dedicated team contributes to maintaining the health of your four-legged family member through the following services:

Annual Examinations
Examinations are critical to help veterinarians find diseases early, before they become too advanced and more difficult to treat or control. We offer a comprehensive physical exam that helps to evaluate the overall health of your pet and to detect any problems that may have potential to become serious

Dogs and cats age about seven times as fast as we do - so as pets age they should be examined even more often. Depending upon the age of your pet, blood tests or other diagnostics may be recommended as part of regular wellness care and disease prevention. Examinations also give you an opportunity to ask questions about your pet's health to minimize disease or injury and ultimately enhance the quality of your pet's life.

Vaccinating your dog or cat protects him or her against a wide variety of infectious diseases. At Anacapa Animal Hospital, we do not believe that one vaccination program is correct for all pets. Therefore, our vaccine protocols are as individual as your pet itself. During your exam our veterinarian will discuss with you a vaccination program that is based on the particular lifestyle of your pet.

Heartworm and Parasite Prevention
All dogs in the Ventura County area should be on an effective heartworm preventive year-round. Administration is easier than ever with once-a-month tasty chews. Cats, too, should be treated for parasites on a regular basis. The heartworm medication recommended at Anacapa is also effective in preventing other parasites, such as hookworms and round worms - so each month you are protecting your pet against multiple parasitic infections. For more information regarding parasites and your pet's visit the Companion Animal Parasite Council online.

Senior Care
As your pet grows older we recommend that “wellness visits” become more frequent and that we see your pet at least twice a year (every 6 months) for senior blood work and senior care. Blood work for seniors may include urinalysis, kidney and liver functions, complete blood cell counts, and thyroid functioning. It is important to have this blood work performed as it is the only way to identify systemic abnormalities that a physical examination may not detect.

Many older dogs and cats suffer from osteoarthritis. Safe and effective pain medications can make these pets comfortable and help them live longer, happier lives with your family. Many of the pain medications belong to a class of drugs call NSAIDs (Non-Steroidal Anti-Inflammatory Drugs). All pets should undergo a thorough history and physical examination before initiation of NSAID therapy. Appropriate laboratory tests to establish baseline blood values prior to, and periodically during, the use of any NSAID are required at our clinic. We would never want to cause harm with the medications that we prescribe - For a handout on NSAIDs.

Puppy and Kitten Plans
Anacapa Animal Hospital provides a package of services specially created to provide an essential baseline of immunity and wellness care for puppies and kittens. The services include examinations, vaccinations, dewormings and special nutrition and educational consultations - all for one basic discounted fee. Additional discounts on microchips and neutering your pet are available to patients participating in these plans. Our goal is to have the healthiest pets in Ventura County and these plans ensure that we are all putting our best paw forward. Pricing is based on the age of your pet.

Ventura County Dog and Cat Licensing
Anacapa Animal Hospital is authorized by the County of Ventura Animal Regulation to issue licenses for most cities in the county. For more information on Licensing your pet in Ventura County click here.

Microchip Identification
At Anacapa Animal Hospital, we recommend all pets have a form of ID on at all times. A microchip is a permanent ID that will ensure your pet can always be identified if lost. A microchip about the size of a grain of rice is placed just under the skin of your pet (usually between the shoulder blades) making it a quick and easy procedure - and providing priceless peace-of-mind for you. Since there are no negative side-effects to this procedure we recommend all pets have a microchip.
