In an Emergency
We are always there when a critical situation arises. Should you have an emergency, one of our on-call doctors is available for you, 24 hours a day. Just call our regular office telephone number:
Payment is required at the time service is rendered or when your pet goes home. We accept cash, check or money orders. We also accept MasterCard, Visa, Discover Card, and Care Credit.
Tours of the clinic can be arranged for groups such as scout troops or school classes, or individuals who haven't seen the back half of the clinic. Our clinic won a national award for design and construction given by Veterinary Economics Magazine in 1987 and we are proud to show it off. Please let our receptionists know if you'd like a tour so an appointment can be made. For an online tour of the clinic, click here!
Many pet owners who are either pressed for time or whose schedule doesn't permit adequate time to bring a pet in and then take it home, take advantage of our Drop-off Service. Just call us as usual for an appointment and give the receptionist as much information as possible. Let the receptionist know what time to expect your arrival, then you may drop off your pet as early as 7:30 a.m. We will then perform whatever services are needed and you can usually pick up your pet at noon (unless surgery was performed) or after you are off work. You can talk with a doctor at that time, if necessary. Lunchtime drop-offs are also available, and the doctors will see your pet as soon as they return from lunch.
Examinations of your pet are recommended annually until 8-10 years of age, after which semi-annual visits are needed. Pets are routinely given examinations during visits for vaccinations.
Puppies and kittens should receive a series of immunizations starting at 6-8 weeks of age, followed by yearly boosters. Pets kept mainly indoors need vaccinations also, and may even be more susceptible to infectious diseases, due to the lack of natural immunity.
Dogs are vaccinated for canine distemper, parvovirus, hepatitis, coronavirus, parainfluenza, and rabies. Yearly boosters are recommended for the distemper combination vaccine. If your dog or cat has had a rabies vaccine previously, then the rabies vaccination will be good for three years. Each year when the annual visit occurs, your pet will receive a new rabies tag and certificate of registration.
Cats are vaccinated for feline distemper, feline leukemia, rhinotracheitis, calicivirus, and 3 year rabies. Yearly boosters are recommended.
Vaccines for Kennel Cough (Bordatella) are recommended if your dog is to be boarded at a kennel or if they are to be around a lot of other dogs (Dog show, dog parks, etc.).
Also available are vaccines for Lyme Disease, Leptospirosis, and rattlesnake venom
Learn more about the importance of good pet dental care, and how bacteria in the mouth can cause serious health problems for pets. Without good dental care, most dogs and cats will show signs of oral disease by age three, which puts them at risk for other diseases.

The doctor may recommend a Geriatric workup for your older pet, which could include a blood chemistry profile, chest x-ray, EKG and complete physical. Pre-surgical examinations along with an EKG and blood profile are routinely performed on any older pet prior to surgery or dentistry.
Radiology is an important diagnostic tool at Cheyenne Pet Clinic. Our modern digital X-ray machine provides us with accurate and speedy results which help in the diagnosis of diseases and trauma.
Our surgical suite is state-of-the-art with the newest, safest anesthetic machines, heating pads, and a positive pressure ventilation system. All anesthetized animals are monitored with a cardiac/respiratory monitor to insure a safe and speedy procedure and recovery. Our Carbon Dioxide Laser offers a totally new dimension to many surgical procedures.
Our up-to-date laboratory is able to provide important information to help diagnose medical problems or to determine if your pet is in top-notch shape or not. Chemistry panels, complete blood counts (CBC), urinalysis, fecal examinations, Feline Leukemia/FIV tests, Brucellosis, and heartworm tests are just some of the procedures performed in our laboratory. Pathology specimens are usually sent to the Veterinary Diagnostic Laboratory in Laramie. For other, more specific tests, we use different laboratories in various parts of the country.
Outpatient therapy involves a veterinary technician passing the painless laser beam directly across your pet’s skin while you are holding or sitting with your pet. Your pet will experience a feeling of warmth while the laser is activated and the treatment usually lasts only 5-10 minutes. The laser beam is transmitting energy into the cells during this time, causing the cells to regenerate at a faster rate, leading to more rapid healing. The laser energy reduces inflammation which leads to reduced swelling and less pain. Essentially, pain relief is being offered in a painless setting with no anesthesia or medication required. Please ask us if your pet would benefit from therapeutic laser therapy.For more information, please visit: www.CompanionTherapyLaser.com
Short endoscopes such as the Video Otoscope can be used in many ways to improve our diagnosis and treatment of common problems of the ear or throat. We use the camera to diagnosis and treat ear infections, polyps, and blockages; and to pinpoint dental or throat conditions as well as genitourinary problems. The Video Otoscope also allows us to treat serious ear problems because it has an attachment which allows deep ear cleaning, often the first and most effective step in therapy. In addition, the Video Otoscope can be used to perform surgery in conjunction with our laser. We can also perform biopsies deep in the ear canal, remove foreign objects and determine the condition of the ear drum.
