Pet owners can contact Pet Poison helpline or the ASPCA Animal Poison Control directly 24/7. A consultation fee ($59-65) may be applied to your credit card. They will assess what your pet has ingested and provide recommendations on whether immediate care may be required. If further care is required, they will continue to serve as a resource to the veterinary care team as they treat your pet’s toxin ingestion.
Yes! Mosquitos, fleas, ticks, and intestinal parasites thrive in our warmer southern climate. They are present in Birmingham year-round! Even indoor-only cats and dogs who spend little time outside are at risk of parasitic infections related to these bugs. Double Oak Mountain Animal Hospital follows the recommendation of the American Heartworm Society and the Companion Animal Parasite Council to ensure the best preventative parasite control for your pet!
There are many great brands out there and they all have many options. We recommend brands who formulate their diets based on years of scientific research, AAFCO feeding trials, and compliance with the World Small Animal Veterinary Association guidelines. Generally, cats may also benefit from maintaining a canned food inclusive or canned food exclusive diet.
We encourage all pet owners to bring their pet’s normal food whenever they stay in our kennel. This helps to encourage your pet to eat reliably during their stay and to help to minimize tummy upset that may occur due to a rapid diet change.
Please bring all medications that your pet requires in labeled pill vials and provide detailed instructions at drop off including when the medications were last administered.
We have plenty of bedding to keep your pet comfortable and do not recommend bringing personal blankets or toys from home. If you choose to do so, please label the items clearly. We will make every effort to return the item at the end of your pet’s stay.
It is very important that you give yourself enough time at drop off to fully cover your pet’s needs with our staff. We want to ensure that your pet is being fed their medications and are being given appropriately during their stay.
You can fill our boarding paperwork prior to your visit in the forms section of our website.
