Dayton South Veterinary Clinic provides a wide range of services designed to keep your pet healthy and happy for many years to come. On top of our quality veterinary services, we also have boarding available for small animals and exotic pets. No matter what your needs, we're always here to help with high quality, caring veterinary services that will always leave your pet feeling healthy and strong.
Our appointment book is computerized which allows us to efficiently make appointments for you and your pet. Our receptionists and team will attempt to accommodate all requests to the best of our ability. Emergencies are accepted anytime our clinic is open. If you feel you have an emergency with your pet, please call us or come to the hospital immediately. If possible it is best to call before coming in so that a staff member can advise you on your particular emergency.
We have a veterinarian and personnel on duty 6 days a week who are trained and equipped to handle any urgent care your pet has. Usually an emergency team consists of at least one veterinarian and several technicians working together to save a pet's life. Emergencies can be things such a snail bait poisoning, hit by car, and chocolate ingestion. If you ever feel that your pet needs emergency treatment do not hesitate to call or come in immediately. If possible it is best to call before coming in so that a team member can advise you on your particular emergency.
We are also available for urgent care when the condition is not life-threatening, but you feel your pet needs to be seen before you are able to get an appointment. Our veterinarians will work to "squeeze" you in between scheduled appointments. When you arrive, our receptionists will be able to give you an estimate on how long you may have to wait in order to be seen.
Our clinic offers a full in-house pharmacy for all your pets needs.We are an authorized seller of the pharmacy products that we dispense, which means that the manufacturers of these drugs will stand behind their products if there are any problems. We obtain our products either directly from the manufacturers or from their authorized distrubutors, usually by overnight shipment, so the quality of these medications is assured.
"Internet pharmacies," "800 number pharmacies," and similar businesses are not authorized resellers of the pharmaceuticals they dispense, in many cases. Some of these businesses obtain product by purchasing it from "middle men" who acquire the product from authorized channels and divert it into unauthorized channels. Some of the products that they sell are produced for markets outside the USA, and are not manufactured or labeled for sale in America. Due to the extended shipping and reshipping required, some of these products may be damaged by environmental extremes that they are exposed to. Pharmaceutical manufacturers will not guarantee their products if they are not purchased from an authorized seller, so if any problems develop, the pet owner is "on their own."
We always provide written prescriptions to our clients when they request them (for products that we stock there is a minimal prescription fee). We want you to be properly informed so that you can decide on the best way to use the prescription. We appreciate your letting us be a part of your pet's health care team.
