We're pleased to offer the following services in our Farmington Veterinary Clinic:
Our appointment book is computerized which allows us to efficiently make appointments for you and your pet. Our receptionists and team will attempt to accommodate all requests to the best of our ability. Emergencies are accepted anytime our clinic is open. If you feel you have an emergency with your pet, please call us or come to the hospital immediately. If possible it is best to call before coming in so that a staff member can advise you on your particular emergency.
Surgery (Traditional and Laser-Assisted)
We have a fully equipped surgical suite at our service. Surgeries are scheduled weekday morning. We perform routine surgeries, such as spays, neuters, and declaws, as well as non-routine surgeries, such as mass removals, bladder stone removals, and laceration repairs. Our surgical laser is a cutting laser that when used for surgery, greatly decreases bleeding, swelling and pain. Pets heal faster and feel better doing it! The laser is especially important when doing declaw surgery on cats.
We have a veterinarian and personnel on duty who are trained and equipped to handle most urgent care your pet has. Emergencies can be things such a rat poison ingestion, hit by car, and chocolate ingestion. If you ever feel that your pet needs emergency treatment do not hesitate to call or come in immediately. If possible it is best to call before coming in so that a team member can advise you on your particular emergency.
We are also available for urgent care when the condition is not life-threatening, but you feel your pet needs to be seen before you are able to get an appointment. Our veterinarians will work to "squeeze" you in between scheduled appointments. When you arrive, our receptionists will be able to give you an estimate on how long you may have to wait in order to be seen.
If you need emergency care after 5 pm or on weekends, we are partnered with Tri-County Animal Emergency Clinic in Peoria. They are open 5pm to 8am daily and from noon Saturday until Monday 8am. You can call them at 309 672.1565 or go directly to them at 1800 N Sterling Avenue in Peoria, just north of Farmington Road.
We offer cremation services through Endearing Pets in Knoxville. They offer group cremations or private. Private you would get the ashes back, group you do not. They also have many options for decorative urns that you can choose from to remember your beloved pet.

We do not offer housecalls on Saturdays. Most services can be provided at your home. Housecalls are great for elderly or large dogs, nervous cats, and/or older or handicapped owners.
