Our team continues to be here for you and your cherished pets. We are OPEN and are now able to provide a wide range of services. To learn more about the changes we have implemented in response to COVID-19 and what to expect during your next visit, click here.
As in humans, your dog should stay within a healthy weight range to help prevent the development of certain diseases. If your pet is overweight it can predispose them to be at a greater risk of serious health complications including diabetes, heart disease, arthritis and in some breeds, respiratory distress. Conversely, some medical conditions can cause your dog to gain weight, such as hypothyroidism. With each physical exam, our doctors will assess the weight of your dog to ensure it is within a healthy range. With you, we will work to maintain a healthy weight for your pet to ensure they live a disease-free life.
At the Airdrie Animal Health Centre, we can assess the weight of your pet and if it is within a healthy range. By assessing body condition score, our staff of trained professionals can determine if your pet requires a change to improve their health, whether it be a change in diet or lifestyle. We are happy to have you visit our clinic whenever you like to have your dog weighed on our dog scale, so you can track the weight of your furry friend.
With recent changes to restrictions on businesses, we are pleased to advise that effective May 25, 2020 the restrictions on veterinary practices have been lifted. Based on these changes, below are some important updates to our operating policies.
1. WE CAN NOW SEE ALL CASES BY APPOINTMENT ONLY
This includes vaccines, wellness exams, blood work, heartworm testing, spays and neuters, dental services, and more!
2. SAFETY MEASURES TO KEEP EVERYONE SAFE
Continue our "closed waiting room" policy to protect our clients and staff. When you arrive, please remain outside the hospital and use your cell phone to call us. We will take a history of your pet's health and discuss any concerns. A staff member will then meet you outside to bring your pet into the hospital for an examination. The Veterinarian will call you to discuss the recommended treatment plan. After your appointment, a staff member will return your pet to you outside, and take care of any needed medications and payment.
Continue the use of credit cards as the preferred payment method.
Continue with curbside pickup of food and medication (unless you have used our online store and are having your order delivered directly to your home). To place an order through our online store, visit our website and click on "Online Store".
3. ONLINE CONSULTATIONS ARE AVAILABLE
If you wish to connect with a veterinarian via message, phone or video, visit our website and follow the "Online Consultation" link.
