Pleasant Valley Bids Farewell to Dr. Bruce Putchat
It is with great sadness that we say goodbye to the founder and spirit of our hospital. Our love, support and prayers are with the entire Putchat family as we say "so long" to Dr. Bruce Putchat who passed away in January.
Dr. Putchat’s lifelong commitment and love of all animals could be seen and felt through his excitement, dedication and trailblazing impact on our veterinary community for almost 50 years. His work and legacy will continue to live within us all, and his influence and memory will forever be a part of his PVAH family.
Now Offering Digital Dental X-Ray
Pleasant Valley Animal Hospital now offers high-quality digital dental x-rays to assess your pet's teeth and oral hygiene.
Did you know that 60% of dental disease in pets is hidden below the gum line?
With our new digital dental equipment, our veterinarians will be able to assess the integrity of an entire tooth (not just what is above the gum line) and any roots that are involved or compromised.
Digital dental x-rays are vital in diagnosing underlying disease and prescribing proper treatment. We will also be able to store, print and email these digital files to share.
Leave Your Pet for a Day Appointment
We know how busy day-to-day life can be for everyone, and we don't ever want our beloved pet's medical treatment to be delayed due to a scheduling conflict. So we are pleased to announce that you can leave your pet with us for the day during our Day Admission Appointments.
Simply check in your pet for its next appointment. Leave a telephone number so we can reach you, and go about your day! We will let you know when you can come back to pick up your pet.
While your pet is with us, one of our experienced nursing team members will make note of your pet's visit with the veterinarian and make sure we have any and all concerns documented. We may contact you during the day if further diagnostics or recommendations are advised. We will supply an estimate upon request as best we can based on our initial discussion.
New Pet Care Wellness Program
Our veterinarians have developed a pet care screening program for your pet's annual preventive care visits. As part of a long-term action plan, and to help offset any additional expense, we have included discounts on your pet's yearly fecal exam and canine heartworm test, as well as a urinalysis screen at no charge if collected at same visit.
This comprehensive screen offers our veterinarians baseline preventive healthcare information on your pet. This information on your pet's health history becomes more vital as your pet enters each life stage, but most especially its senior years.
Please call with any questions you may have and be sure to ask about at your pet's next scheduled wellness visit. This program is available to both existing and new patients.
Receive 10% Off Your Pet’s First Grooming
Did you know routine grooming care can be just as important to your pet's health as preventive medicine?
Regular grooming through-out your pet's life not only keeps them fresh, clean and styled; but can also help both treat and prevent chronic skin conditions from developing further. Excessive sebum (oily skin), dry skin, hidden undercoat, or even parasites can all be culprits to skin irritants and allergy concerns. Chronic ear infections can be bettered controlled in part to routine cleaning/plucking and regular nail trims can help prevent broken nails and uncomfortable foot pressure.
Our groomer Kim can help you with routine trimming/bathing and hygiene care as well as intermittent "freshening up." Call 610-346-7854 to book your pet's grooming today!
