Treating Illnesses Through Medication & Customized Veterinary Care

Services

Carroll Veterinary Clinic and Foothills Pet Healthcare Clinic are designed to provide a full scope of veterinary services and pet boarding services to accommodate dogs, cats, puppies, kittens, and pocket pets. Our newly constructed facilities feature comfortable and spacious surroundings, well-equipped in-house labs, radiology suites for diagnostic work, and full-service pet boarding facilities.

  Discounted spays and neuters

We believe in the importance of animal population control and in the health benefits of spaying and neutering. We strive to provide the highest quality, low-cost spays and neuters in our community. Our animal clinics also work with local humane societies to discount these services for animals adopted from the shelters.

  Reproduction services

We work with responsible breeders to provide kennel health consultations, litter exams and vaccinations, artificial insemination services including collection and transfer, scheduled ovulation and whelping, fertility exams, C-sections, OFA exams and radiographs, and litter marketing consultation. Discounts are available for multiple litters. Please contact us if you are a responsible breeder interested in additional information.

  Pet behavior and training services

We believe the pet owner is the best trainer for a pet and that our role is to help the owner understand normal behavior and assist in integrating pets into the household "pack." We encourage understanding and gentle redirection in all behavioral issues. Our puppy and kitten wellness programs focus heavily on behavior and we spend time during each visit discussing behavior concerns in all areas from house breaking to aggression. We also offer consultations for adult pets in areas such as separation anxiety, thunderstorm phobias, aggression toward other pets, house soiling, and geriatric behavior changes. We may recommend behavior-modifying drugs depending on your pet’s unique situation. It’s important to remember that many abnormal behaviors are related to underlying health issues. With a thorough physical exam and appropriate lab work, we can identify and manage physical illnesses that may manifest themselves in the form of undesirable behavior.

  Referral services

Being an experienced veterinarian means knowing when a pet’s situation could benefit from the unique skills of a specialist. While our veterinarians have extensive experience and the expertise to handle most medical, surgical, and emergency needs, we often recommend referrals to specialty animal clinics, such as Carolina Veterinary Specialists and area veterinary schools including Virginia Tech, North Carolina State, and the University of Tennessee. We maintain excellent relationships with these specialists to ensure that you and your pet receive the high quality care you expect and deserve.
