Vet Svcs

Whether your pet is a cat, dog, or other small mammal, we at the Shackleford Road Veterinary Clinic want to make your life together the best it can be.  After more than three decades of serving pets in the Little Rock area, we understand your need for comprehensive and convenient veterinary services.

Wellness Services at Our Veterinary Clinic

Wellness exams are important for all pets, whether they’re 18 days or 18 years old.  Our veterinarians love getting kittens and puppies on the road to good health with an initial exam and recommendations for the vaccinations best suited to their lifestyles.  Whether you have a new pet or have recently moved to the area with a furry friend, yearly wellness exams protect and monitor your pet’s health.  Our veterinary clinic offers microchipping to help you recover a lost pet and nutritional counseling to meet your best friend’s special health needs.  We’re also happy to examine your pet’s gums and teeth to identify any potential health issues and to offer dental hygiene pointers.

The hectic pace of life today makes convenience important.  Going out of town?  You’re welcome to board your pet with us until you return.  You can even manage his or her health online thanks to our partnership with Petly.

Latest Technology

We’re proud of our technological capabilities.  Shackleford offers state-of-the art diagnostic services such as digital X-rays, endoscopy, ultrasound, and an in-house laboratory.  In the event of an accident, other emergency, or illness, animals have access to comprehensive medical care.  Our staff is fully qualified to provide emergency and critical care services.  Should your pet need surgery, whether for a routine procedure such as neutering or for a health problem, our doctors have 53 years’ combined surgical experience.  Our CO2 laser is the latest in surgical options and minimizes a pet’s pain, swelling, and bleeding while fostering a quicker recovery than traditional surgery offers.  The clinic’s compassionate staff will give your pet exceptional care from check-in through anesthesia, surgery, and discharge and are always happy to answer all your questions.

Little Rock Senior Pets

Thanks to medical advances, pets now live longer than ever.  Our goal is to help make the senior years your pet’s golden years.  We’ll address all your questions at your senior’s wellness exams.  They’re the perfect time to make necessary adjustments in medical, nutritional, and exercise regimens and to help you understand particular health issues that affect aging pets.  As your beloved friend approaches life’s end, it might be difficult for you to provide care at home.  When that happens, we’re honored to help you make end-of-life decisions and provide hospice services.

When you need help, Shackleford is just a phone call away.  No question is too big or too small.  Take a moment to call us today to find out how we can help you and your pet.  We’re happy to schedule an appointment or answer questions.  We look forward to meeting you and your very special dog, cat, or pocket pet.
