Due to our belief in preventative care, Wythe Care Veterinary Service, Inc is also equipped with a state-of-the-art ultrasonic dental machine. Poor dental health can lead to other health problems with your pet, including but not limited to sinus infections, kidney disease, and liver disease.
When needed, we recommend dental cleaning and polishing as a part of your pet's preventative health care regimen. We also like to teach owners how to take better care of their pet's teeth between dental cleanings so that your pet keeps a healthy mouth for life! Ask us today to schedule a dental health check for your pet, and get your pet on a healthy track!
*We are currently offering cat neuters one Saturday a month, beginning Spring of 2021 to Fall of 2021. Check out our listings on FB and on our Community Events page for more details! Call us at (276) 617-0500 to schedule your male cat for surgery!
Our unit is equipped with a surgery table that allows us to perform minor surgeries such as laceration repairs, lump removals, and biopsies of suspicious masses. We can perform spays or neuters on your cats, as well as spays and neuters on dogs under 25 lb.
We recommend your pet receive lab work prior to sedation to avoid problems with interactions of drugs and metabolic problems, and we send pain control medication home whenever surgery is performed to improve healing afterward. When necessary, we may recommend a traditional hospital for overnight care since we do not keep any surgeries overnight.
Our cat spays and neuters recover from surgery on a 4”-thick soft bed! Most are so comfortable the owners that pick up have a hard time getting them to come out of the cage! Recovery time is spent in our unit, and then the patient is sent home to the care of the owner with specific instructions for aftercare. We provide laser therapy of the spay incision post-surgery as we have found this speeds healing time and decreases irritation of the incision. We also provide a preventative pain injection prior to surgery and three days of post-surgery pain medication to help speed up healing from surgery. Comfort is our goal!
Due to our small space, we are unable to do spays and neuters on dogs over 25 lbs. We do recommend the local spay/neuter clinics in Bristol, VA, called Margaret-Mitchell Spay Neuter Clinic (contact them at (276) 591-5790), and in Christiansburg, VA, at Mountain View Spay Neuter Clinic (contact them at (540) 562-8440). These clinics offer low-cost spays and neuters by trained professionals!
Advanced Digital Rays
Animals can’t talk to us with words, so it’s challenging to tell when something is wrong or what the issue is. It’s especially difficult to tell when the problem is internal. Fortunately, medical imaging provides answers for your family members who can’t speak. Don’t hesitate to schedule an X-ray appointment when you suspect your pet is suffering.
If needed, we can also radiograph your pet to find potential problems with suspicious pain that may be caused by arthritis, fracture, disc disease, or neoplasia. We can have results within seconds of taking the X-ray so that we can start treating your pet's pain right away. We can also send a copy to a radiologist, if needed, for a consultation.
At Wythe Care Veterinary Service, Inc, we are happy to offer microchipping. Every year, thousands and thousands of pets go missing. Not knowing where your pet is or how to bring them back can be a helpless, hopeless feeling. It's a tragedy that happens all too often.
But there is a simple, safe, and effective way to ensure your pet's safety and retrieval should he or she ever become lost. Microchipping is a standard procedure that implants a tiny chip underneath your pet's fur. It is a painless and relatively fast procedure and is completely safe.
This microchip is registered with your pet's vital information and can be scanned by any veterinarian or animal shelter so that your pet can be returned directly to you.
Save yourself the heartache and stress of a lost pet. Microchips bring pets home.
At Wythe Care Veterinary Service, Inc, we believe that one of the most important aspects of caring for your pet's health is practicing preventative health care. There are a variety of diseases that can affect pets, so proper vaccination is vital to protecting them from many types of illnesses.
We consult with each owner about the unique risks your pet faces day-to-day. We will be happy to discuss the benefits of protecting your pet with vaccinations, tailor a vaccination protocol that keeps your pet safe, and provide you with information on the required vaccinations your pet needs.
It is our goal to provide the highest level of care for your pet, and vaccination is an integral part of your pet’s overall health. Please contact us today at (276) 617-0500 if you have any questions or concerns about your pets' vaccination.
At Wythe Care Veterinary Service, Inc, we understand your pet is part of the family. Therefore we provide full exams of your pet with each visit. We recommend twice yearly exams due to the fact that your pet ages faster than you. We examine your pet from head to tail each visit to make sure your pet remains healthy.
To keep your pet healthy, we will make recommendations for yearly heartworm and intestinal parasite prevention, tick control, and flea control. We will dispense products that meet your pet's particular needs. We will also vaccinate your pet to keep diseases such as parvovirus, distemper, and rabies from affecting your pet and your family.
We will also make recommendations for proper nutrition for your pet throughout its life stages.
Flea and Tick Control Products
How can you protect your pets?
* We recommend a product called Bravecto, which kills fleas and ticks for 12 weeks on your cats and dogs!
*There are four stages to the flea life cycle: the flea, egg, larvae, and pupae. Once in the house, the pupae stage can wait to hatch for 9 to 12 months!
*We advise the best ways for treating bedding, the yard, and the house with appropriate methods to control flea populations to the safest and fullest extent in your environment.
Because every environment is different, schedule a visit so we can recommend protocols today for flea and tick control that will work for you and your pet and keep your pet's skin healthy!
At least once a year, we will recommend lab tests to check the health of your pet on the inside. These tests can include a heartworm test, Lyme test, fecal check for intestinal parasites, urinalysis, and blood work to make sure there are no signs of metabolic disease such as diabetes, kidney disease, thyroid disease, or other issues. We advise lab work if your pet is not maintaining its weight properly, urinating more frequently, or not acting well.
We can perform most tests onboard our unit and have results within 10 minutes!
One of the most important veterinary services we provide is humane euthanasia. While euthanizing is always a difficult choice for an owner to make, sometimes it is the best or only health care option available. As a mobile service, we’re proud to provide at-home services to ensure your beloved pet spends their final moments in familiar surroundings and complete comfort.
Please review our Euthanasia page for more information about this topic.
Your pet’s skin is the largest organ of the body. Allergies, parasites, infections, autoimmune diseases, and cancers can all affect your pet's skin.
When you notice something concerning or simply different about your cat or dog’s skin, don’t hesitate: schedule an appointment with our team. While the problem may be something simple, it could also be an early warning sign of a more serious issue.
We offer specific diagnostic tests like allergy testing, fungal testing, cultures, and biopsies, along with the most cutting edge treatments, to ensure the health of your pet’s skin.
Just as we worry about COVID-19, you should be concerned about flu and your pet.

If you are interested in dog vaccinations against various flu strains; ask our vets for further information on what’s available via our mobile services.
Cats can also catch flu, and it’s especially dangerous for kittens and elderly felines. Talk to our staff about pet vaccinations that reduce your pet’s risk of coming down with and spreading this illness.
We are pleased to offer our clients the benefits of laser therapy! Laser therapy has been approved for veterinary use since 2005. Laser therapy can benefit your pet with acute and chronic conditions, including but not limited to arthritis (from injury, disc disease, or Lyme disease), allergies (yes, those skin allergies can respond to laser therapy!), otitis (ear infections), stomatitis (mouth inflammation), wound healing, and more! We advocate the use of laser therapy post-surgery to speed up healing time for incisions and improve comfort for the patient!
By using laser therapy, the use of drugs in your pets to control pain may be reduced, leading to better health and comfort for your pet! Call us today if you have a pet that may benefit from our therapy.
