We recommend yearly check-ups and vaccinations for your pet. Pets with ongoing medical conditions or diseases requiring more frequent visits should be seen at least every six months. Please contact us today to find out how Cloverhaven Animal Hospital can serve you and your pet’s needs.
Preventive care, also known as wellness, is essential to helping your pet live a long, healthy, and happy life. When most people think of preventive care for their pets, they think of vaccines. While vaccinations are essential, there are actually four equally critical cornerstones in preventative care. These include exams, lab tests, parasite screenings, and vaccines.
ID Chips / Microchips
An ID chip is about the size and shape of a grain of rice and is placed underneath your pet’s skin between the shoulder blades. Microchip implantation takes only a few minutes and is very safe. Each microchip is unique and carries vital information about your pet—including your name, address, and contact information.
Dentistry in veterinary medicine isn’t just about keeping your pet’s teeth white and mouth smelling good. Many of our pets suffer in silence from acute/chronic oral pain and systemic bacteria from periodontal disease, tooth fractures, tooth resorption, and many other oral conditions. Our team’s goal is to help you identify, stop, and prevent the pain and systemic side effects of these conditions for your pet.
We have a very talented and experienced team here at Cloverhaven Animal Hospital. They all have completed advanced dental and surgical training and can provide safe surgical procedures resulting in minimal discomfort for your pet. We also carefully screen your pet before surgery to ensure that your pet is healthy for anesthesia.
Spay & Neuter
We maintain a large inventory of veterinary pharmaceutical products and medications, including flea, tick, and heartworm preventive products. You can rely on us whether your pet requires medication for a chronic medical condition or needs short-term medication while recovering from an illness, injury, or surgery. We are also here if you experience any problems with your medication after you return home.
It’s easy to get confused or overwhelmed by all the pet foods on the market. We can help you weed through the choices and find a dog or cat food that will meet your pet’s specific nutritional needs. We even carry many nutritionally balanced, veterinary-approved brands in our clinic. Feel free to ask us for a food recommendation or contact us with any nutrition questions or concerns you might have.
Regular vaccinations are one of the cornerstones of good preventive health care for dogs and cats. When administered by your veterinarian, vaccines provide cost-effective protection against infectious and contagious diseases for both pets and people. Vaccines help prevent many contagious illnesses, including ones that can be fatal, that pets may encounter if they are outdoors at all, socialize with other animals in public places, or travel with you.
It’s easy to keep your pet protected from parasites like fleas, ticks, and heartworm, and we’re here to help! Fleas and ticks are not only a source of irritation to your pet, but they can also harbor disease and adversely affect your pet’s health. Heartworm is a dangerous parasite that lives in the heart of dogs and cats. It damages the heart muscle and can be fatal. Contact us to make sure your pet is protected from these harmful parasites!
Did you know that horses’ teeth grow continuously until about 25 to 30 years of age?! Horses have very different diets from their ancestors in modern times. Because of these modern diets, horses have a hard time keeping their teeth worn down naturally, so they need to have their teeth filed down by veterinarians to keep them from becoming pointed and uneven. If your horse is experiencing anything unusual related to its mouth or you have any questions, please give us a call!
Orthopedic surgery is the branch of surgery concerned with conditions involving the musculoskeletal system. Orthopedic surgeons use both surgical and non-surgical means to treat musculoskeletal trauma, sports injuries, infections, tumors, and congenital disorders. Our team has extensive experience and additional formal training beyond veterinary school with many orthopedic diagnostic and surgical procedures.
Radiographs are an important tool that can help us make a correct diagnosis for your pet. Our radiology service is staffed by caring, skilled professionals who will provide state-of-the-art care with compassion and expertise. We offer digital radiography, a form of X-ray imaging where digital X-ray sensors are used instead of traditional film. The advantages of using this critical diagnostic tool include time efficiency from bypassing chemical processing, a clear digital image, and the ability to transfer and enhance images digitally. These images are immediately accessible to our doctors and our clients.
Are you looking to improve conception rates in your reproduction program? With our professional counseling, we can help you determine the optimum time to breed your pets and enhance the success of pregnancy. Please call and set up an appointment with one of our veterinarians to discuss how we can further assist you with your breeding program.
You can rely on our pet stylists at Cloverhaven Animal Hospital to provide the same level of love and attention to your four-legged fluffy friend as you do from our medical team. Our pet stylists offer a variety of services for all your pet’s grooming needs at our grooming facility.
Our highly-trained veterinarians and staff are available to treat pets who are suffering from life-threatening trauma and disease. We are available for transfers from your primary care veterinarian as well as for walk-in urgent care needs and emergencies.
If your pet has an emergency after our regular business hours, you can call 662-840-0110. You will be directed to one of our emergency hospitals.
What to Expect

We recommend yearly check-ups and vaccinations for your pets. Pets that have ongoing medical problems such as heart disease, kidney disease, liver disease, Cushing’s disease, thyroid disease, diabetes, or any other disease should be seen on a more frequent basis (we recommend at least every six months). Pets on certain long-term medications (pain, chemo drugs, phenobarbital, thyroid, anti-fungals, and certain antibiotics) require regular blood work to check liver and kidney enzyme levels. Senior pets require special medical attention. We recommend senior profiles (complete blood count, blood chemistry analysis, urinalysis, thyroid function, EKG, and radiographs) for all our aged pets. If we “catch” problems early, we will help your beloved pet live a longer, healthier, happier life.
When your pet needs surgery, we are always concerned about safety. All pets will have pre-anesthetic bloodwork performed before anesthesia to ensure no underlying disease process is present. IV catheters are placed, and intravenous fluids are given during the entire surgical procedure and post-surgery when necessary. Surgical patients are monitored with an EKG, pulse oximetry, temperature monitor, and respiratory monitor. Each patient is evaluated for the correct pre-anesthetic drug. All surgical patients are given pre-emptive pain medication and will go home with pain medication.
