Here, we offer answers to some of the questions our customers frequently ask.

What Are Common Symptoms Indicating a Pet Emergency?

If your pet is having trouble breathing, or is limping, vomiting, bleeding, or seems weak, you may be facing a pet emergency. We’re happy to help during business hours, and after business hours we recommend that you call an emergency pet veterinarian.

How Often Should I Get My Pet’s Wellness Checked?

Pets need wellness checks at least once a year. At this visit, we’ll provide your pet with any necessary annual vaccinations and examine to identify any obvious or underlying health issues. An annual blood test is encouraged to check for internal organ health. If your pet is showing signs or symptoms of illness, please don’t hesitate to make an appointment. Early intervention is often the key to a positive outcome.

What Veterinary Services Do You Provide?

We offer educational information through our extensive e-health pet resources, as well as pet boarding services. Our pet veterinarians also provide a wide range of veterinary services for cats, dogs, rabbits, hamsters, guinea pigs, mice, rats, and other furry pocket pets, including:

Which Pet Allergies Are Treated at Arroyo Animal Clinic?

We treat many environmental and food-related pet allergies. For pets living in Northern California, foxtail allergies are an extremely common problem, though there are many other allergens present in our area as well, including pollens, fleas, and mold spores. Our expert pet veterinarians offer a comprehensive array of treatments for allergies, including prescription and over-the-counter medications in the form of pills, injections, and ointments for pet skin allergies.

What Payment Methods Are Accepted?

We currently accept Visa, American Express, MasterCard, Discover Card, cash, and checks.

What Is Your Payment Policy?

All payments are due when veterinary services are provided. However, we accept pet insurance, and we offer a 10% discount for senior citizens.
