is a full-service facility that offers all of the services and procedures you need to keep your pet in good health. Below is a brief introduction to our offerings:
Regular physical examinations are one of the best ways to keep your pet healthy. These allow our doctors to stay familiar with your pet and catch potential health issues before they become serious. Our exams include a review of your pet’s physical condition from nose to tail. We will also collect information about body weight, feeding, exercise and your pets overall lifestyle. We always provide advice and information to help you help your pet live a happy and healthy life.
We offer an up-to-date core vaccination protocol that is designed specifically to protect our patients from the potential disease exposures common to our area. Presently, our core vaccinations include Canine and Feline Distemper, Rabies, Bordetella and FELV. If we find out that you and your pet’s lifestyle requires other vaccinations to keep them protected, we will make the appropriate recommendations. Other non-core vaccinations that are relevant to some areas of California are leptospirosis and Lyme. Please ask at your next Wellness Exam how these diseases are spread and how your pet may be exposed.
Dental disease is the most common disease in small animal medicine. Poor dental hygiene can cause several other health issues, from simply malnourishment to liver, kidney and cardiac disease. Mission Animal Hospital is home to state of the art dental equipment, and the medical staff has advanced training in dental surgery and treatment. We offer advice on how to keep your pet’s mouth healthy from the start, as well as tips and techniques to maintain dental health through all phases of your animal’s life.
The best way to prevent animal abandonment and overpopulation is spaying and neutering. We believe that cost should never prevent someone from being able to spay or neuter their pet. We offer cost effective, safe solutions to sterilize your animal no matter what age, weight, sex or breed. Please make an appointment to be provided with an estimate specific to your pet's age and health requirements.
Our in-house laboratory allows us to offer Complete Blood Counts and full blood chemistries, urinalysis, and a wide range of health screenings and tests without the wait of sending samples out for processing. However, when needed, we use the industry’s largest and most experienced reference lab for diagnostics beyond the capability of our lab. Wellness blood screening and physical exams are excellent methods to assure your pet’s total health status.
Ventura is home to a number of parasites and pests. Mission Animal Hospital carries a number of products to prevent heartworm disease and keep your pet safe from internal parasitic infections, as well as topical infestations of fleas, ticks, lice and mites. We are always happy to answer your specific questions. Please ask your veterinarian to explain the risks and management of these issues.
