General Medicine and Services

Examinations - At Midwest Veterinary Clinic, we offer comprehensive examinations that help evaluate the overall health of your pet. Regular physical examinations can detect problems in their early stages, before they become serious illnesses requiring prolonged treatment. Preventative medicine is the easiest, least expensive and most important way to keep your pet healthy. Early detection ensures prompt action that may solve the problem before serious consequences occur.

Vaccines - Immunizations are a crucial part of your pet's health care. Some immunizations are recommended yearly while others are given every three years. Usually administered during an annual exam, we work with you to develop an individual vaccine protocol that best suits your pet's needs.

Microchip Identification - This unique form of identification is an easy, yet permanent way to bring your pet home quickly should he / she become lost. The microchip is a tiny electronic device, about the size and shape of a grain of rice. It is implanted beneath your pet's skin between the shoulder blades, and stays there for his / her entire life. This procedure is as easy and as painless as a vaccination.

Each microchip has a unique number. This number, along with information about the owner and pet, are added to a national pet registry. Most veterinary hospitals and animal shelters have electronic scanners for detecting and reading these implanted microchips. If a lost pet is found and a microchip is scanned it is easy for you to be contacted.

Dermatology - Hair loss and constant scratching can indicate fleas, food allergies or other more serious skin conditions.

Dentistry - Clean teeth and healthy gums are essential to your pet's health. Infections are more common in the mouth because they can go undetected for long periods of time. Our veterinary staff regularly performs oral exams, cleanings and periodontal care as part of our comprehensive health care goals.

Some Signs of Dental Problems include:

  • Bad breath – one of the first signs of dental disease
  • A yellowish-brown crust of plaque on the teeth near the gum line
  • Red and swollen gums
  • Pain or bleeding when your pet eats or when the mouth or gums are touched
  • Decreased appetite or difficulty eating
  • Loose or missing teeth

Dental problems, if left untreated, can often lead to larger systemic problems in your pet due to oral bacteria entering the blood stream and damaging the kidneys, heart and liver.

Baths and Nail Trims - Hygiene is important. We gladly offer baths and nail trims to our patients. We do not provide complete grooming services.

Adoption Services - We regularly work with local area shelters and rescue organizations.

Surgery - Elective spays and neuters, necessary soft tissue surgery, and orthopedic surgeries are performed on a regular basis at Midwest Veterinary Clinic. We have an isolated surgery suite and monitoring equipment to give your pet the safest experience possible.

Radiology - If radiographs (X-rays) are necessary to diagnose your pets problem, we can perform radiographs and have results in a short time.

Laboratory Services - We have the ability to perform Complete Blood Counts, Chemistry Panels, Urinalysis, Fecal exams, Heart worm tests, Feline Leukemia Virus tests, Feline Immunodeficiency Virus tests, Feline Heart worm tests, Thyroid screening tests and many more in the clinic so that you can get results as quickly as possible. If your pet is sick, this allows us to get a diagnosis and treatment plan quickly so your pet can feel better sooner.
