Palm Coast Pet Clinic is dedicated to providing your pet with high quality, compassionate care.
Our experienced team is here to meet all of your pet's veterinary needs.
Our services include:
We offer a wide variety of diagnostic testing at our facility and partner with the best specialists in the area to ensure you have the best quality care for your pet. For routine lab work we use Antech Diagnostics or AVRL, they are national veterinary laboratories providing accurate results for blood testing, urinalysis, and histopathology, with next day results in most cases. *For emergency cases we also have in-house laboratory capabilities which include CBC (complete blood count) and blood chemistry analyzers for blood glucose, liver and kidney function, electrolytes, and thyroid testing along with other organ functions. *Routine in-house testing is available for parvovirus and FeLV/FIV (feline leukemia/feline immunodeficiency virus). Our digital radiology enables us to produce high quality diagnostic images. We have board certified radiologists available for teleradiology interpretation and consultation. Dr. Sheffield employs an ultrasound machine for routine pregnancy evaluation, and minimal diagnostics. She does not offer this service in lieu of a complete professional abdominal or cardiac ultrasound procedure.
We offer surgery services Monday through Friday by appointment. Each patient will receive a pre-surgical exam. In some cases pre-surgical blood work may be required to evaluate possible underlying risks. Clients are always offered the option of blood work and intravenous catheter placement and fluids as a preventative measure against the possible risks of anesthesia. During surgery your pet's safety and comfort is our first priority. While under anesthesia your pet will be continuously monitored, by pulse oximeter, respiratory monitor and visual observation. Finally your pet will recover from their procedure in a quiet, warm environment with blankets, and fully monitored until completely awake.
Dental disease causes pain and difficulty eating, and can lead to damage of many organs including the kidney and liver.
For most pets we recommend regular dental cleanings every 12-18 months, this frequency may be increased for pets 5 years of age and older with dental disease. Taking a preventive approach can often save your pet from unnecessary pain and disease as well as the cost of extensive care caused by dental neglect.
We offer Dental Cleaning services Monday through Friday, by appointment. Dental cleaning for cats and dogs require anesthesia, just as in surgery, your pet will receive an exam prior to their procedure. The teeth will be cleaned using an ultrasonic dental scaler to remove tarter on the tooth surfaces. A thorough dental exam is done once the teeth are cleaned, and the doctor will determine whether further treatment or extractions are needed, and she will perform them as determined. Finally, the teeth are polished, an important step in slowing the rate of future tarter build up. During the dental procedure your pet's safety and comfort is our first priority. While under anesthesia your pet will be continuously monitored, by pulse oximeter, respiratory monitor and visual observation. Dr. Sheffield remains in direct attendance for all anesthetic procedures. Finally your pet will recover from their procedure in a quiet, warm environment with blankets, and fully monitored until completely awake.
