Emergency Vets in Chesapeake VA are places where animal-related problems can be examined, diagnosed and treated. They also provide a variety of other services including prevention and education.
Client-veterinarian communication is important in veterinary practice as animals cannot verbalise their symptoms and veterinarians must rely on the owner’s explanations or clinical examinations. This is particularly critical when delivering difficult news such as euthanasia .
Veterinarians manage a wide range of medical conditions and injuries in non-human animals. Their duties also include animal welfare, husbandry and breeding, as well as preventive medicine such as vaccination and parasitic control.
They use a combination of clinical signs, owner reporting and observations, radiography, CT scans, MRI, blood tests and urinalysis. They may also recommend physical rehabilitation for their patients.

Vaccinations help your cuddly pet avoid diseases that can make them very sick, and costly to treat. Internal parasite medications help keep them free of hookworms and roundworms that steal nutrients from their bodies. Flea and tick prevention keeps these pests from living on or in your pets, causing them pain and irritation as well as transmitting deadly diseases.
Regular wellness examinations help your pets stay healthy throughout every stage of their lives. Problems are easier to diagnose and treat in their early stages, when they can be much less severe.

Dental disease is one of the most common medical problems in pets. It is painful and can cause or contribute to serious systemic conditions such as heart or kidney disease. Symptoms of dental disease include bad breath, tooth decay, gum disease and loose or infected teeth.
Our veterinary dentists have undergone extensive training to perform dental procedures safely and effectively on our patients. During a cleaning your pet will be anesthetized to keep him or her still and comfortable while we remove the tartar (hardened plaque) buildup, polish and floss the teeth, and apply a fluoride treatment to prevent decay.
We also have digital dental radiology to check for tooth root abscesses or other abnormalities below the gum line. We can often detect and treat these problems before they become painful or lead to more serious health conditions.
Regular pet grooming and bathing not only helps your animal look their best, but it can help keep them comfortable by preventing issues with their skin and coat. Having your pet professionally groomed regularly can also identify health concerns that you may not notice, such as lumps or abrasions. Grooming services include nail trims, ear cleaning, and anal gland expression. Bathing is essential to help distribute natural oils throughout your pet’s fur, as well as keeping their coat clean and soft. We offer a variety of shampoos and conditioners to keep your pet’s coat healthy, as well as medicated baths for sensitive pets. Grooming appointments are scheduled by appointment only. We recommend calling ahead.
Please be advised that any cancellation or no-show will result in a full grooming charge.
