Trusted Veterinarian in San Angelo, TX
For Comprehensive Pet Care
As your local family veterinarian in San Angelo, TX, the Prickly Pear Veterinary Hospital is dedicated to offering full-service veterinary health care for your pet.
We have a highly trained staff and our facility is fully equipped to provide basic care and to treat a wide range of injuries and disorders in pets of all ages and breeds. Because it’s always better to prevent illness and disease before they occur and do harm, we place a heavy emphasis on preventive veterinary health care to keep your pet healthy, happy, and active at every stage of their lives.
Here are just a few of the services we provide:
Pet wellness care focuses on promoting good health through a combination of preventive health measures, including regular physical and dental examinations, vaccination of dogs and cats, comprehensive diagnostic testing, good nutrition and diet, lifestyle management, and parasite prevention and control.
We maintain a modern surgical suite and diagnostic lab at our hospital and we are equipped to perform surgeries of all types, from minor procedures like spay and neuter services to major operations for serious injuries or disorders.
Regular dental for dogs and cats is highly important for the overall health and well-being of your pet. Periodontal disease is very common in both cats and dogs, and if not diagnosed and treated early, the resulting infection can spread throughout the whole body, damaging internal organs. Regular dental examinations and teeth cleanings will help to keep oral problems away.
If your pet falls victim to a serious injury or illness, you need to know that you have a veterinarian in San Angelo who knows your pet personally and is readily available to provide emergency treatment quickly when the unexpected happens. If possible, call ahead to our office to let us know you’re coming.
Good pet health care starts at the beginning of life. Regular physical examinations, vaccinations, deworming and testing for parasites, and spaying and neutering will get them off to a great start. We can also offer you advice on proper diet, potty training, and preventing bad behaviors.
Older pets have special health needs, issues, and concerns and should see their veterinarian in San Angelo more frequently than when they were young. Our staff is very experienced at caring for the physical conditions and ailments that pets often face as they age. We also offer pet euthanasia services as part of our end-of-life care.
