Dental care for our pets is an essential part of their health, yet is often overlooked for our pets. Many years of research has proven that regular cleaning of our pet’s mouths reduces the incidence of illness caused by harmful bacteria that can grow in their teeth and gums. Dr. Hunt can clean and polish your pet’s teeth and show you how to care for them between visits as well.
Animals have a variety of skin issues that must be treated by a professional and Dr. Hunt can help you with these problems. Constant scratching and licking, especially combined with whining is not normal and needs to be addressed by a veterinarian. We provide treatment ranging from topical ointments and steroid treatment to specialized bathing techniques. Veterinary Mobile Medical Services takes allergy treatment options one step further by offering Cytopoint. Cytopoint is a new therapy for atopic dermatitis. Click the link below for more information!
One of the more important tools in providing excellent care to your pet is the use of x-ray technology. Veterinary Mobile Medical Services is equipped with modern radiography equipment that can identify tumors, bleeding and broken bones. Modern x-ray units use extremely low doses of radiation and are non-invasive, meaning the procedures are painless and safe for our clients.
Hospice and Euthanasia
Our time with our faithful pets always comes to an end too soon. You may rest easy knowing that Dr. Hunt is here to help you keep your pet comfortable at the end of their time with you. Today’s techniques for euthanasia are painless and peaceful. Once the medicine is administered, your pet will peacefully drift off to sleep. Our staff will be with you and will inform you on all aspects of the procedure.
Blood work is one of our more important testing that is done for pet care. Our pets cannot express to us where they hurt or how they hurt most of the time, so blood testing is an excellent way to get down to the cause of the problem. Dr. Hunt is pleased to offer both in-house and off-site diagnosing procedures. For immediate diagnosing for sick pets and emergencies, Dr. Hunt uses Abaxis VetScan chemistry analyzer for use right in his own clinic.
For more extensive testing such as Complete Blood Count (CBC), Dr. Hunt uses Antech Diagnostics and results are often available within 12-24 hours which helps expedite the care for your pet and get them back on track as soon as possible. We also run blood testing as needed to insure your pet is as safe as possible during surgical procedures.
Veterinary Mobile Medical Services now offers Multi Radiance MR4 therapy laser.

This drug-free relief is safe, easy-to-use, and is effective and versatile. If you feel your pet would benefit from laser therapy, please give Dr. Hunt a call.
A recent advancement in the animal community is the prevalence of microchipping. What is a microchip? It is a small identification device about the size of a grain of rice that is inserted under the skin of your pet. It includes not only your information but also the veterinarian’s information that placed the chip. This is much more reliable than the old ID tag and collar since it can be removed or easily lost. Schedule an appointment to have a microchip placed in your animal so that you are never separated longer than necessary!
Obesity affects nearly 40% of our domestic animals today. It is a growing epidemic and attention is needed to keep your pet in the best of health. A few extra pounds really do count on a small animal, such as a Chihuahua. Sluggish movements, lack of motivation and constant sleeping are not good for our animals. Dr. Hunt can help you get back on track with your pet by advising food portions and exercise needs. Remember that an active pet is a happy pet!
No one likes to see a loved one in pain, including our animal companions. Dr. Hunt can provide pain relief therapy whether the pain is from injury or long term disease processes. He is able to treat our older pets who suffer from arthritis or other bone-and-joint related issues. If you suspect that your pet can be put at ease with the help of some pain medicine please call our clinic today to schedule a consultation.
The pharmacy at Veterinary Mobile Medical Services is unique in that it offers a full range of medicines and heartworm and flea and tick preventatives within the clinic. What does this mean for you? A guarantee on the quality of the medicine as Dr. Hunt works directly with the manufacturer, which is an important part of keeping peace of mind as you and Dr. Hunt work to heal your animal companion.
