Foothill Pet Hospital
Mission Statement
- To provide comprehensive veterinary care in a manner that enhances our patients’ quality of life, eases their suffering, and promotes dignity.
- To diagnose and treat illnesses in a timely, efficient, and ethical manner utilizing the most current medical advances available.
- To promote education to our clients, and promote preventative medicine for their loved ones.
Vaccination Clinic
We have a Vaccination Clinic on a walk-in basis from 12:00 PM to 1:00 PM on most Saturdays. If you are unable to make it to our Saturday vaccine clinic, and you feel your pet does not need a physical examination with the doctor, we can usually schedule a "vaccine only" appointment during the week too. If you prefer this option, please phone our hospital to schedule a time. There are various recommendations (protocols) for vaccinations in dogs and cats.  As puppies and kittens, we recommend the first vaccines at 6 – 8 weeks old.  These are followed by a series of boosters until your pet is 16 weeks or older.  For adults, we tailor your pet’s vaccines based on their exposure risks, and your concerns and preferences.
Emergencies
If you wonder/feel your pet is ill or may have an emergency situation, please phone ahead and consult with our staff. Some examples of situations which may constitute an emergency are:
- a pet who has ingested a potential toxin and/or drug.
- a pet with uncontrolled bleeding.
- a pet having a seizure for longer than 2-3 minutes (or when you are worried).
- a pet who hasn’t eaten and/or taken in water/fluids for a reasonable amount of time and is depressed.
- a pet who can’t get up and walk.
- a pet who has maggots.
- a pet who is depressed, lethargic, and/or moribund.
- a pet who has been bitten by a snake.
Fecal (stool) exams:  It is recommended by the Companion Animal Parasite Council (CAPC), American Association of Veterinary Parasitologists (AAVP), and the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) that all pets should have an annual fecal exam as part of their annual check-up, and that puppies and kittens should have a regular deworming program.  These important recommendations are not just to decrease illness in our pets, but also to decrease human exposure risks from these parasites and their eggs in our environment.
Puppy/Kitten check-ups:  We recommend that puppies and kittens have an initial examination. This is in order to check on their overall health status, give them any vaccines which might be due, answer any questions you might have, and to discuss the latest recommendations and products that would apply to your new pet. In fact, for the reasons listed above, these "new pet" initial examinations are strongly recommended for all the different pet species we see.
