Our staff at Animal House Veterinary Hospital is filled with passionate animal lovers who are here to help you and your pet! They are highly trained and dedicated to making sure that your pets receive the care and compassion every time they walk in the door!
We offer the following services to keep your pets healthy:
There Your pet's teeth will be checked during their regular physical exams, but sometimes the disease lies beneath the surface. The best way to determine what is affecting your pet's dental health is through a dental cleaning.
During this common procedure, your pet will be under general anesthesia. Just like any other anesthetized surgical procedure at Animal House, your pet will have a breathing tube, IV catheter, and full ECG monitoring, as well as an assistant dedicated to monitoring their vitals. Full-mouth dental x-rays will be taken, your pet's gums will be checked for pockets of infection, and their teeth will be cleaned, polished and treated with a fluoride rinse to help remove bacteria and plaque and to slow tartar buildup. Sometimes, extractions are necessary - we don't like "pulling teeth," but we always put your pet's health first when making that decision.
A physical exam and pre-anesthetic bloodwork is completed prior to each and every procedure. Give us a call at (918) 957-5556; we're happy to answer any questions you have regarding your pet's dental health.
There are times in a pet's life when they require surgery. Spays (ovariohysterectomy) and neuters (castration) are the most common routine surgical procedures performed in a veterinary clinic. We can help you determine the right time for your pet's alteration, taking multiple factors into consideration: your pet's age, breed, weight, general health, and relevant medical conditions are all evaluated.
At Animal House, we also offer a number of other procedures - foreign body removal, bladder stone removal, wound repair, tumor removal, amputations, and other surgeries. During the procedure, your pet will have a breathing tube, an IV catheter, and full ECG monitoring, as well as an assistant dedicated to monitoring their vitals and aiding their recovery.
Your pet's safety is very important to us, so a thorough physical exam and bloodwork will be done prior to surgery. We will walk you through authorization forms, bloodwork results, aftercare, and the actual procedure. Call us at (918) 957-5556 with any questions!
A microchip is a small, digital identification chip placed under your pet's skin. It is a safe, quick, simple procedure that utilizes a needle not much bigger than most earrings. It is not a tracking device (such as a lo-jack), but it does provide permanent identification unique to each pet; not only does a microchip serve to help reunite you and your pet if they get lost, but they can also be used for travel across state lines and borders.
When we microchip your pet, we place the microchip and we register it for you. You will receive information directing you to a website with your pet's microchip number, and you can edit your pet's profile with information like medical conditions or an identification photo. You can update your phone number and address as often as needed free of charge for the lifetime of your pet. No subscription is required in order to keep your information updated, but additional benefits can be purchased.
Animal House utilizes PetLink for microchipping services. Give us a call at (918) 957-5556 with any questions or to have your pet chipped or scanned!
Vaccinations can help prevent many common diseases. Similar to people, a pet may still contract a disease for which they have been vaccinated, but the disease course is usually shorter and the symptoms are not as severe.
In Oklahoma, it is legally mandated that ALL pets have a current Rabies vaccine. We will gladly discuss and administer other valuable vaccines depending on your pet's age and lifestyle.
Puppies and kittens need to be vaccinated more frequently than adults as they grow; their immune systems are learning how to fight diseases. An adult pet will not need vaccinations as often. If you feel that your pet may still have immunity from their previous vaccinations, we offer a vaccine titer service - this simple blood draw and lab service will check you pet's immune system for the capability of fighting these diseases. (This is not a legal option for Rabies in Oklahoma).
Call us at (918) 957-5556 with any questions on vaccine scheduling or to make an appointment!
Wellness exams are vital to keeping your pet healthy. Routine exams can not only prevent diseases by regular screening (such as fecal exams, heartworm tests, and routine bloodwork), but they can also detect changes and diseases before they become a problem. Vaccinations will be discussed and administered as appropriate for your pet and their lifestyle. Preventing fleas, ticks, intestinal parasites, and heartworms is crucial year-round in Tulsa, and we are more than happy to assess your pet's lifestyle and help determine the most suitable product for your pet. We will do a thorough exam checking your pet's entire body, nose to tail. We'll check their weight, assess their eyes, ears, joints, heart, and lungs. We'll discuss diet, prevention, and helpful supplements, and we'll gladly answer any questions or address any concerns you have during your visit with us.
We do offer drop-off appointments to fit with the working pet parent' schedule, or we can have in-person room appointments. We'd love to see your pets - call us at (918) 957-5556 to schedule an appointment with us!
Emergency & Urgent Care
Emergencies happen. A dog tears a toenail on her daily walk. A cat develops an abscess from a fight with another cat. Sometimes it's more serious - a dog has a broken leg, or a cat gets hit by a car. We want to be with you every step of the way. We will examine your pet, provide pain relief, formulate a treatment plan, and walk you through aftercare at home.
Sometimes the best thing we can do is transfer you to a 24-hour hospital after your pet is stable. We will work with you and support you and your pet in any way we can, be that providing directions and referral information, sending records to the referred hospital, consulting with specialists, and following-up with you to ensure that you and your pet are cared for.
Some traumas are best served in 24-hour hospitals; Animal House does not provide 24 hour on-call services. There are two hospitals in the Tulsa area that are open 24 hours a day. They are fully staffed and have the equipment needed for significant emergencies.
Call us at (918) 957-5556 and we will help you get the treatment your pet needs.
