Providing quality care for your dogs and cats

Pet Health Center in Saint Peters, MO has provided great medical and surgical care for your furry friends for the last 34 years. Your dogs and cats can get their routine exams and vaccinations with us as well. Our friendly staff loves animals, so your pet will be in great care when they are with us. Our services include the following:

Wellness care

Vaccinations
We believe that one of the most important aspects of caring for your pet’s health is vaccinating them against potential diseases. There are a variety of diseases that affect our pets and animals. This makes proper vaccination vital in protecting them from the many types of illnesses they are susceptible to.
Heartworm and Parasite testing
Heartworm disease is a serious and potentially fatal disease in pets in the United States and many other parts of the world. It is caused by foot-long worms (heartworms) that live in the heart, lungs, and associated blood vessels of affected pets, causing severe lung disease, heart failure, and damage to other organs in the body. All dogs and cats should be tested annually for heartworm infection, and this can usually be done during a routine visit for preventive care.
Preventive care exams

It makes sense to do everything possible to prevent disease! Our systematic approach to all aspects of preventive pet health care can avoid unnecessary pain and suffering that will keep pet health care costs to a minimum over the lifespan of your pet. Our doctors and staff are committed to preventive care to help your pets live longer and feel better while reducing your pet care costs.

Microchipping
Microchipping is a standard procedure that implants a tiny chip underneath your pet’s fur. It is a painless and relatively fast procedure and is completely safe.

This microchip is registered with your pet’s vital information and can be scanned by any veterinarian or animal shelter so that they can return your pet directly to you.

Save yourself the heartache and stress of a lost pet. Microchips bring pets home.

Prescription food
Our prescription food offers science-based therapeutic nutrition for your pet with specific health conditions or specialized nutritional needs.
Diagnostic lab tests

Our in-house laboratory allows us to perform an array of diagnostic tests that help us care for your pet. This ranges from simple laboratory tests to more complex diagnostic tools that help us in treating your pet. A diagnostic test is a type of medical test performed to aid in the diagnosis or detection of disease. Diagnostic testing is a vital part of detecting health problems and being able to treat them before they worsen.

X-rays
Our in-house radiology section uses digital X-rays to routinely diagnose and examine broken bones, obstructions, arthritis, masses, tumors, and pregnancies, as well as to detect items that were ingested by your pet.
Emergency Service
Emergencies can happen, which is why emergency care is available during operating hours. In the event of an emergency during business hours, please contact us immediately.
Chiropractic care
Chiropractic care is a holistic form of medicine that can be used to treat a variety of symptoms. We use proven methods to alleviate interference of the skeletal system so that the body can heal itself in a natural way.
Specialty Referral
If your pet is referred, our veterinarian will stay in contact with specialists to keep you updated while diagnosing and treating your pet. That partnership continues until we are able to return your pet to your regular veterinarian’s care.
Hospice care

Hospice care is appropriate at any time we are faced with an incurable illness or aggressive or invasive treatments and/or if diagnostics are declined in favor of comfort care. Early intervention, whether once a diagnosis is made or when we feel we need a little extra support and guidance, helps us to ensure we are able to provide the best possible care.

Quality of life consultations

We will have an in-depth conversation discussing your pet’s condition, your concerns, goals, hopes, and expectations. We will help you to identify signs of pain and discomfort. We will review your pet’s medical history if available and discuss the expected progression of their disease and potential complications and treatment options for managing any signs of discomfort you may be seeing.

Surgery

Dentistry

The most effective way to protect your pet from dental disease is through professional cleanings. During the dental, we scale off all the tartar, polish the teeth, and probe around each tooth. We provide full-mouth dental radiographs to assess the health of the teeth beneath the gumline. If there are any fractured, painful, diseases, or dead teeth we remove the source of pain and inflammation at the time of the dental.

Surgery

We believe in utilizing the highest level of medical technology, and our surgeons are experienced and highly trained. We also realize that it can be stressful to have your pet undergo surgery. We want to assure you that your pet is in good hands and that we will do everything to provide the best care possible.

Orthopedic Surgery

There is a wide range of orthopedic procedures your pet may undergo. Some of the more common include ACL repair, fracture repair, joint dislocation, hip surgery, and more.

Aside from the patients that get very nervous coming to the vet, veterinary house calls are also for the elderly, those with difficulty walking, or handicapped owners or really anyone who just wants their family veterinarian to examine and treat their pet in the quiet and comfort of their pet’s home.
