Beattie Animal Hospital veterinarians provide services for dogs and cats from infancy to the golden years through scheduled visits and emergency situations. Services at our animal veterinary clinic include innoculations and wellness care, surgery and anesthesia, senior pet evaluations as well as boarding and day care for pets.
Pet Grooming, Pet Boarding, Day Care and Dentistry
At Beattie, we have pet groomers on staff at all times who are available for appointments to have your dog or cat's nails trimmed when necessary or if they need bathed and brushed. Pet grooming is part of an animal's routine care. Grooming can also be scheduled during a pet's overnight stay at our animal hospital.
For dog owners who are out of town on vacation or unable to be home during the day, our Beattie animal veterinary center offers dog boarding with separate spaces with heated and air-conditioned quarters. It is recommended to call ahead of time to ensure that a space will be available for your dog.
Our Brantford facility can show you how you can combat gum disease at home as well as treat advanced cases of tooth and gum decay. By age three, the majority of cats and dogs have some kind of gum disease, according to the American Veterinary Dental Society. In fact, this is the number one health issue with cats and dogs. Left untreated, gum disease can spread bacteria throughout the pet's system and even cause organ failure.
Emergency Services and Pet Surgery
In addition to the pet health and preventative services offered, Beattie Animal Hospital is a 24-hour animal veterinary clinic with health and diagnostic services as well as an intensive care unit. We offer urgent care and emergency care through our teams of veterinarians 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
Our on-staff surgeons perform daily surgeries on dogs and cats from spays and neuters to more complicated procedures. We use laser technologies to treat your pet. If you are faced with an emergency, such as an accident or a poison ingestion, come right away. You don't need an appointment for emergency care.
