When you are looking for a veterinary care facility you should be able to count on superior care and excellent service. We at Boyd Lake Veterinary Center in Loveland CO have assembled an expert team of veterinary professionals to bring you the best possible healthcare for your pet. We have a state of the art veterinary facility which is clean, comfortable, and efficient. Call 970-593-1717 to schedule an appointment and we will find a time that is convenient for you.
Since pets age so much more quickly than humans, it is critical that they be examined by a veterinarian at least once yearly (twice yearly for elderly pets). A yearly exam is equivalent to a human visiting the doctor every four to seven years! Our doctors (Dr. Carrie Tyszko and Dr. Patrick Doherty) will perform a full physical which includes examining the eyes and ears, teeth and mouth, skin and coat, heart and lungs, skeleton and joints, and palpating the abdominal cavity. They will ask you questions pertinent to your pet's breed and age and encourage you to ask any questions you might have.
Parasites are an important health issue for both you and your pet so our Drs will recommend an annual fecal exam and heartworm test. Since many pet parasites can also infest people, it is important for any pet that even briefly ventures outside to receive year round worm control such as Heartgard Plus or equivalent.
Bring in any records you have of your pet including vaccinations administered, medical notes, labwork, copies of x-rays, and past fecal/heartworm tests and worming history when you come to visit us. It's best to keep a journal of your pet's health throughout his or her life, including behavioral shifts. If you have something like this, share it with our team. If not, let us know everything that you think will be important. We can still work with whatever information you have.
In some circumstances, Dr. Tyszko or Dr. Doherty will refer you to a specialist who has board certified expertise in areas such as internal medicine, ophthalmalogy, radiology, or surgery.
Ask to tour the boarding, grooming, and daycare sections of our building when you visit us so you will feel comfortable leaving your pet with us if the need ever arises. There are no set times for tours but first thing in the morning and last thing at night are not ideal since we are very busy accepting/releasing pets from boarding, daycare, grooming and veterinary procedures.
