At Oakview Veterinary Hospital, we have a fully stocked pharmacy right here on site for your convenience.

Dental care

Do you provide dental care?

We can provide dental cleaning and polishing. We can also perform extractions. To maximize your pet’s comfort and help speed recovery time, extractions are done under general anesthesia, antibiotics and pain medication administered as needed.

Why is dental care important?

Oral health is an important part of your pet’s well being. Bacteria in the mouth can travel to other areas of the body and cause illness or even organ damage. Fractured teeth can cause pain and reluctance to eat. So it is important to make sure your pets teeth are clean and in good condition.

Yes. With a staff member dedicated to caring for our boarded animals and exercising them at least twice a day, we provide personal attention in a caring and loving environment that is clean and safe. And with both indoor and outdoor runs, there is plenty of space to play and be active.
Our boarding services are for already-established patients that are current on vaccines and free of contagious disease. We can accommodate family groups and daycare boarding services are also an option. Please call at least a week or two in advance of your boarding needs and as far in advance as possible for boarding during holidays.
