Frequently Asked Questions

Small Animal Services

Grooming
Wellness/Vaccinations

To keep your pets healthy we offer vaccination, heartworm testing, and yearly exams. We feel that regular visits to the veterinarian can help keep your pets healthy. Preventative care such as parasite prevention is also very important to keep your pet healthy. We believe in helping you design a custom preventative care program depended on your pets lifestyle.

Spay/Neuter

There are three important reasons we highly recommend spaying or neutering your pet. The primary reason is to help your pet live longer. Spaying eliminates the risk of ovarian cancer, uterine cancer, and pyometras (a life threating infection of the uterus) Spaying also decreases the risk of mammary tumors. Neuter eliminates testicular cancer and decrease the risk of future prostate problems. Secondly, there are some behavior reasons to consider spaying and neuter. Lastly, we feel it is important to spay and neuter to help with the current over population of cats and dogs.

Diagnostics

We offer modern digital x-rays resulting in faster, clearer images. We also have in house bloodwork, so that important results can be seen in a timely manner. Not all test can be ran in house, but we work with a veterinary diagnostic lab to get additional needed results that cannot be done in house.

Testimonials

Dr. Pleis has provided veterinary care for my yellow lab and farm cat. She is compassionate, knowledgeable, and professional. Sherrie patiently answers all of my questions and gives me confidence that I am meeting the needs of my pets. I am excited to have her locate her clinic in Nevada!``

Dr. Pleis goes above and beyond in her services as a vet. She offers a very personalized care that cannot be matched. Whether it's remembering your dog's name and health history to answering phone calls when your puppy eats something questionable, she is always there to help! Quite simply, I've never found the same level of personal attention with other vets.``

Sophie’s health went downhill, and it was determined our dog’s kidneys were failing from another clinic. The clinic I went to suggested taking her to Iowa State for three days of intensive inpatient treatment that included keeping her quiet and continually flushing the kidneys. This procedure would have resulted in thousands of dollars in vet bills. Then, I reached out to Dr. Pleis for a second opinion. She very patiently listened, and then shared her opinion of the test results. We discussed options and in the end decided to have Dr. Pleis come to our house and put our precious pup to sleep in a most loving and gentle way. This was a rough ordeal, but Dr. Pleis’s willingness to be honest, while also being caring and compassionate, made the passing of our dog easier.``
