Animal Care from the Heart! We treat your pets as if they were our own!

Welcome to Mounds View Animal Hospital

Animal Care from the Heart

Your pet is a part of the family, and when your pet needs care you want the same quality and personalized care you would get from your family physician.

At Mounds View Animal Hospital we believe in “Animal Care From the Heart”—an approach that means we really do care about your pet. When your pets are in our care, you can rest assured that we will treat them as if they were our own.

Since our pets are unable to tell us when and where there is a problem, they rely on us to know when there is something wrong. We believe that it’s vital to take the time to really listen to your questions and concerns in order to best help you and your pet. Since it’s important for you to know as much as possible about your pet’s problem, we will carefully explain the situation and what needs to be done, as well as describing all the available options.

Mounds View Animal Hospital’s staff of well trained and experienced veterinary professionals are dedicated to providing your pets with the best possible care so that they may live long, happy and healthy lives. We believe that the best way to do this is by regular preventive care which includes annual examinations, vaccinations, fecal checks, and heartworm checks. However, should your pet become ill or injured, our state- of-the-art equipment and facilities will enable us to provide the care your pet may need in one convenient location.

Hill’s Canned Dog Food Recall:

Dear Mounds View Animal Hospital Client,

There is a FDA warning regarding feeding dogs (and possibly cats) boutique, exotic, or grain-free (BEG) diets and their association with dilated cardiomyopathy (DCM) and congestive heart failure (CHF). The association is not fully understood and is being investigated by veterinary cardiologists and nutritionists.  Due to the strong link between these diets and the number and severity of cases, Mounds View Animal Hospital strongly recommends NOT feeding these diets to your pets until more information is known.  When discontinuing these diets (and treats), we recommend that you transition to the new food gradually over 4 to 7 days mixing in the new food gradually.  We do not recommend a sudden/abrupt change of diet as it may lead to gastrointestinal upset (diarrhea and/or vomiting).  There are many good quality pet foods from which to choose.  Among the several brands we recommend are Hill’s Science Diet, Royal Canin, Purina Pro Plan, and Eukanuba products. The following link can help in making decisions regarding choosing a food:  https://www.wsava.org/wsava/media/arpita-and-emma-editorial/selecting-the-best-food-for-your-pet.pdf

If you are concerned about your pet or they are displaying signs of decreased energy, exercise intolerance, increased or difficult breathing, coughing, or collapse please call to schedule an appointment.  Taurine blood levels can be done to screen for any deficiencies and more advanced testing can be done if the pet is symptomatic.
