At Wolf Creek Veterinary Services, we offer a variety of services to care for your pet. If you have any questions or would like more information on how we can care for your pet, please contact us today.
During an exam we start at the head and end at the rear. The assistant or tech will grab your pet’s weight and temp as soon as they enter the room. Before the vet enters the room you may be asked a few questions concerning your visit.
The assistant or tech will then let the vet know that you are here as well as pull up any vaccinations or tests that are needed. When the vet comes s/he will look at the eyes and the teeth. Right after we check the pulse and the heart. S/he will check the body for any lumps and run a flea comb down their back.
If there are any concerns the vet will discuss the issue and deliver the solution. To conclude the exam we trim your pet’s nails.
The clinic carries recommended vaccines to help keep your pets safe and healthy. By vaccinating your pets you are eliminating the potential risk of catching diseases while being exposed to contaminated animals.
Have a new pet? Make sure to get a jump start on vaccines and take care of their puppy and kitten series. Following the first visit you will have to complete those with boosters. The core vaccines for dogs would are Rabies, Bordetella (Kennel Cough), Da2plp, and Lyme. The core vaccines for cats are upper respiratory, leukemia vaccine and Rabies.
A chiropractic adjustment is a short, rapid thrust onto a specific anatomical part of a vertebra in the precise direction that will replace the vertebra into a normal position.
Chiropractic adjustment is a controlled force applied in a correct angle.
The purpose of the adjustment is to restore alignment and eliminate nerve pressure.
Several adjustments may be needed until the body accepts and maintains the correct alignment of bone, muscle tendon and ligament. Often times this means 3 to 4 treatments. Routine maintenance may be once monthly or even less often is some cases.
Veterinarians who complete a certificate program of more than 200 hours are qualified to practice animal chiropractic care.
Dr Heather Kinney, a member of the Wolf Creek Veterinary Services staff, meets these training standards. Allow us to assist you in a safe, natural treatment regime.

Our staff will watch them to make sure all is well and everything is regulated. We also remove masses after they are examined by the veterinarian. For a typical lump removal they are required to stay for 48 hours but is also determined by the recovery time. Depending on the case, drains are used after the surgery to get rid of any left over fluid. We want to make sure your pet is safe and happy when he goes home. If your pet is having trouble urinating he might have stones! The removal of these stones will relieve your pet from the pain that is occurring. If your pet is having any other problems please don’t be afraid to ask! We will further assist you the best we can or refer you if need be. Surgeries will vary depending on the case and the amount of time it takes. Some surgeries will take longer than others and sometimes the recovery time is quicker allowing a sooner release.
For the assurance of your pet please watch for any symptoms. Make sure your pet’s appetite is normal, they are active, and the overall appearance is the same. This will prevent a lot of problems from occurring or prevent any severe cases.

Heart Worm Prevention
Heartworm disease is a prevalent problem for dogs in our area. For this reason, we recommend that owners learn a little bit about the disease, treatment, and prevention.
Heartworms are not always a problem until they reach their adult size when they can be up to twelve inches long. As adults, they prefer to live in the right side of the heart and the lungs. For this reason, most dogs will have both lung disease and heart failure.
When a dog has heartworms, it is necessary to treat him or her. However, the treatment can be dangerous because the worms can cause problems as they die. It is very important to watch the dogs carefully during this process. Some dogs may need a second treatment.
Fortunately, heartworms are preventable. We recommend that you prevent heartworms instead of dealing with the disease and treatment. Here at Wolf Creek Veterinary Services, we offer a once a month chewable tablet that will prevent heartworms and also help with intestinal parasites, keeping your dog and your family even healthier.
Here at Wolf Creek Veterinary Services, we are proud to offer flea and tick prevention to our patients.
Fleas can be horrible. Not only do they infest your pets, but also they live in many dark spaces in your home. They like dark and warm places. They can be found in carpet, bedding, and more. If you get fleas in your home, it is not easy to get rid of them.
Fleas cause your pets to be itchy. They may dig themselves raw until their skin gets infected. The worst part about fleas is that many pets are allergic to them. Even one or two fleas will drive these pets crazy.
Ticks are also a problem in our area. They feed off of the blood of your pets. This is often not enough to make your pets sick. However, many ticks carry terrible diseases such as Lyme Disease, Ehrlichia, and more. Some dogs are allergic to tick bites, which causes a serious problem.
Fortunately for us, we offer a prevention (or preventative choices) for fleas and ticks. These medications need to be given every month for the best results. We also recommend giving them all year round because fleas and ticks can cause problems no matter what time of year it is.
Contact us here at (330) 674-9161 if you have any questions about flea and tick prevention.
At Wolf Creek Veterinary Services, we are happy to offer microchipping. Every year, thousands and thousands of pets go missing. Not knowing where your pet is or how to bring them back can be a helpless, hopeless feeling. It’s a tragedy that happens all too often.
But there is a simple, safe, and effective way to ensure your pet’s’ safety and retrieval should they ever become lost. Microchipping is a standard procedure that implants a tiny chip underneath your pets’ fur. It is a painless and relatively fast procedure and is completely safe.
This microchip is registered with your pets’ vital information and can be scanned by any veterinarian or animal shelter so that they can return your pet directly to you.
Save yourself the heartache and stress of a lost pet. Microchips bring pets home.
Can you imagine what your teeth would look like if you never brushed them? It’s no different for cats and dogs, though many pet owners don’t pay very much attention to their pets’ dental health.
Bad breath and dirty teeth are unappealing, but many pet owners aren’t aware that these may be indicators of gum disease that can spread to the kidney, heart, and liver.
The gums are a boundary to the bloodstream, so unless you are regularly providing dental care for your pet, you are neglecting an important factor in their overall health and putting them at a higher risk for serious illness.
To learn more about dental care for your pet, please don’t hesitate to contact us today.
