General Health Concerns
A pet’s well-being is typically an owner’s number one concern. As a pet ages, certain species or breeds are predisposed to particular health conditions. For this reason, it is important to take notice of changes in pet behavior and maintain regular veterinary check-up exams.
The following are general health concerns along with suggestive symptoms and possible treatment options. If you have any questions about these illnesses, or if you have noticed your pet exhibiting any questionable symptoms, please contact our office at your earliest convenience.
We were in Graeagle for a week when one of our cats had an episode. We called American Valley Vets and they got us right in. These guys are great. Wish they were closer to home. They would be our full time vets.
We had our sweet Nellie girl in and out of the vets office this past week. She had a cancerous tumor and with her age and previous problems with anesthesia we knew it would be a risky surgery. Dr. Klement did such an amazing job! The tumor is gone and our bull dog is on the road to recovery. Thank you Dr. Klement and staff for caring for our girl!
I had an emergency last fall with my Henry who impaled himself with a stick into his groin and hip. Dr. Klement operated immediately on a Friday. Henry came through it with Dr. Klement's skilled hands and Henry is fully recovered and not even a limp. Thank all at AVAH!
I have visited this animal hospital on numerous occasions. Sadly, I had to put two cats to sleep due to sickness six months apart from one another. It was one of the hardest decisions I've ever had to make.
Dr. Gary Klement took the time to explain the possibilities of long term care vs quality of life. He took the time to understand my financial position and explained the cost of additional testing and care. He listed out the facts, was objective and let me come to my own conclusion as to what was best for my pet and I. I appreciated that he did not try to sell procedures in an attempt to make my pet "better" just to make money when he the outcome was bleak. I appreciate that he was kind, honest and real with me. I have also brought my other animals for checkups here. Dr. Klement remembered me and took the time to carry on a personalized conversation with me even though he was busy. As long as I'm living in this area I will come back to American Valley Animal Hospital and highly recommend Dr. Klement
