Welcome to Martin City Animal Hospital
Smart Veterinary Care for Your Pet
We’re a full-service, experienced veterinary practice with a neighborhood feel.
We’ll care for your dog or cat like we do our own. We’re passionate about education and preventative care, and we strive to make every visit as low-stress and friendly as possible.
Stop in to see us, and we’ll treat you and your pet like a neighbor.
We believe in the value of proactive, preventative health care. During each visit, we perform comprehensive examinations and discuss your pet’s diet and lifestyle. We work with you to keep your pet healthy so they can enjoy a high quality of life longer, which saves you on veterinary care in the long run.
No surgery is routine, so we customize our surgery and anesthesia plans for each patient. We perform our surgeries with technicians in the room to monitor your pet while they are under anesthesia. We use advanced protocols, and we seek out continuing education on surgical techniques for the best ways to treat your pet.
If your pet needs emergency care during our clinic hours, please call us so we can advise if you should bring your pet to us or go directly to an emergency care center. For after-hours needs, we refer our patients to Mission Veterinary Emergency and Specialty Center or Blue Pearl Veterinary Emergency Center.
Taking care of your pet’s teeth is just important as your own dental care. And since pets can’t brush, we coach you on how to help. We offer dental evaluations for your pet, as well as routine cleanings and surgical extractions under anesthesia. As in other areas of pet care, preventative care goes a long way.
PUPPY & KITTEN EXAMS
When you add a puppy or kitten to your family, we closely monitor their nutrition, growth and development. We counsel you on house training and any behavior issues that arise. And we work with you to determine the right timing for spaying, neutering or other procedures.
If your pet suffers from a chronic disease such as diabetes, hypothyroidism, Cushing’s disease or Addison’s disease, we help you understand the condition and the most effective ways to treat it. We take a multi-faceted approach to care by looking at diet and exercise as well as medications. We take the time to create a realistic treatment plan that balances your family’s needs and lifestyle with your pet’s.
Pets are rarely born with perfect manners, and we can provide practical advice from our years of experience. We help with issues such as separation reaction, anxiety and chewing. Often, the people need to be trained as well as the pet. Our goal is for your family to fully enjoy pet ownership.
A relatively new development in pet health care, laser therapy can be used to heal wounds, treat chronic injuries, relieve back pain and arthritis, and fight infections. Our high-energy cold therapy laser uses light to promote faster healing and reduce pain for your pet. We’ve seen incredible results with our patients, and we’re happy to talk with you about this treatment
The type of vaccinations your pet needs depends on their lifestyle. Outdoor pets and pets that are frequently boarded need special attention. At your visit we discuss this and recommend any on-site laboratory testing and the proper vaccinations based on what we know about your pet.
Located in the heart of Martin City, Missouri, we serve clients from our neighborhood and throughout south Kansas City, on both sides of the state line. We’re a full-service veterinary hospital providing expert care for dogs and cats.
It’s our mission to offer great customer service and high-value veterinary care for clients who want a personal connection with their vet. We have a knowledgeable staff, and we invite you to ask questions. We take the time to explain terms, treatments and recommendations. We know you have a bond with your pet and that your pet is a member of your family. We’re here to take care of all of you.
So we welcome you to our Martin City neighborhood. We love our eclectic spot right on the railroad tracks, and we think you’ll appreciate it too – especially when you can pull right up to our door to unload your pets!
