Pet Services

All pet services are performed on-site at Four Paws Pet Resort. We can combine services for your convenience and your pal’s happiness 🙂

Professional grooming services make your pet look and feel great and is also a great opportunity to detect potential medical problems that often go undetected by busy owners; these conditions can include irritations of the skin, eyes, ears, mouth, paws and nails.

In addition, difficult or special needs animals are no problem for us – our groomers are very knowledgeable about the breeds and medical conditions that can cause high anxiety and how to handle them. If needed, anesthetized grooming can be performed, under the supervision of a veterinarian.

Doggy daycare at Four Paws Pet Resort provides plenty of companionship, treats, and active play, whether you pal needs a day of play or a set weekly schedule. All guests are fully supervised by our well-trained staff and enjoy as much outdoor time as possible in our safe and secure 5,000 square foot enclosure.

Daycare will help your buddy stay fit and reduce bad behavior, such as chewing on furniture or ripping up the trash – all signs of loneliness and frustration. It’s a great way to socialize a new puppy and is particularly good for very active dogs.

Pet boarding is available for long or short term stays. All guests enjoy clean and comfortable accomodations, as well as plenty of attention and TLC.

RHODE ISLAND ANIMAL MEDICAL CENTER SERVICES IN DETAIL

Wellness Visits

As your pet matures from a puppy/kitten to an adult onto a senior, we offer comprehensive wellness strategies that will enable you and your furry friend to plan for each life stage and the unique health needs associated with each stage. A vital part of the exam is the discussion between the client and the professional care giver at RIAMC.

The gradual onset of health problems in an apparently healthy pet often go unnoticed. Depending on the communication between you and your doctor an informed decision of a yearly or bi-yearly exam can be determined. Remember, your pet’s lifespan is shorter than ours. A lot can happen in 12 months.

Diagnostics

Laboratory testing plays an integral role in the early detection of changes in your pet’s health. Diagnostic tests provide essential information by which our veterinarians can identify blood disorders, kidney and liver disease, diabetes, infection, cancer, thyroid disease and other hormonal problems.

Rhode Island Animal Medical Center laboratory provides fast and accurate information so that your pet can receive appropriate treatment immediately after arriving at the hospital. When more sophisticated testing is required, we utilize a certified veterinary laboratory offering the expertise of board certified specialists in pathology, hematology, internal medicine and radiology. For your convenience we can also schedule in-house veterinary specialists in several different fields including internal medicine and cardiology.

Dentistry

Dental disease, specifically periodontal disease, is the most common ailment affecting pet dogs and cats. At RIAMC, we feel it is very important that our clients realize the impact dental care can have on their pets overall health.

An infection in your pet’s mouth is just like one in his or her kidney, heart, liver or lung. His body becomes stressed as it tries to chronically fight that infection. The infection can easily spread from the gums throughout the body via the bloodstream. Dental infections are responsible for about 80% of heart valve disease which result in heart murmurs.

We offer ultrasonic teeth cleaning and digital dental radiographs that provides your pet with good oral health. As an adjunct to teeth cleaning, we recommend a dental home care plan that is specifically designed to your pet’s needs.

Surgery

No procedure is routine when it comes to surgery at RIAMC. Our team of doctors and surgical technicians provide an individualized anesthetic and pain management protocols for each pet undergoing surgery. For your pet’s safety, our operating suite is equipped with the latest in veterinary monitoring equipment including EKG, blood pressure, oxygen saturation, temperature, heart rate and respiration rate.

We are able to perform most surgical procedures from spays and neuters to more complicated abdominal surgeries, mass removals and some orthopedic (bone and joint) procedures. We take pride in our equipment and our modern anesthesia and patient monitoring systems.

Pharmacy

Rhode Island Animal Medical Center carries an extensive inventory of veterinary pharmaceutical items, supplies, and medications. For the convenience of our clients we have the ability to treat your sick companions right away. We do honor requests for scripts but do not deal directly with any online pharmacies.

Prescription Diets

The treatment of many conditions often requires the feeding of specialized veterinary diets. We carry a variety of Hills Science Diet and Purina prescription foods. If you need a special item please let our staff know and we try to accommodate.

Grooming

Grooming is more than coat-deep – it’s a very important part of your pet’s health, protecting the eyes, ears, skin and claws from infection and parasites.

Our modern grooming facility accomodates dogs and cats, and our well-trained and experienced staff are accustomed to handling difficult or high anxiety pets. If your pet is particularly stressed or has a serious medical problem, anethesia grooming can be performed under the direction of one of our veterinarians.

Proof of the following vaccinations, performed within the last year, must be provided prior to grooming (missing vaccinations can be performed onsite with prior scheduling):

 

DOGS

  • Distemper/Parvo combo
  • Rabies/Bordatella
  • Heartworm test within last year
  • On heartworm preventative

CATS

Daycare

If you have a puppy, high-energy breed or if you just don’t like to leave your pet home alone all day, daycare offers many benefits:

  • Exercise (most dogs don’t get enough exercise which can lead to health and behavioral problems)
  • Attention (many dogs get lonely and can engage in destructive behavior, such as chewing on furniture, etc.)
  • Less stress (no rushing home to let your dog out or worries about working late)
  • Reliability (our clean, safe and secure is open 7 days a week)
  • Stay fit, have fun, and get clean – add grooming and save $5

You can depend on our well-trained staff to give your pal plenty of TLC, as well as the opportunity to socialize with other dogs in a safe and secure environment. Individual playtime, treats and group play are offered each day. Dogs are supervised all day, whether outside in the dog park or in our specially-designated indoor play area.
