Your Resource for Veterinary Care in West Jordan
Here at Jordan River Animal Hospital, we know your companion animals are more than just pets -- they're important members of your family. That's why our general and emergency veterinarian in West Jordan, Dr. Silkman, provides all the services you need to maintain your four-legged family member's health, from routine care to emergency services. You'll find our clinic to be a relaxing, reassuring, kid-friendly place where you always feel good about the skilled, compassionate veterinary care your pet receives.
Spay and Neuter Surgery
Did you know that spaying and neutering offers better health and a longer lifespan? In addition to preventing unexpected litters, sexual sterilization surgery also reduces your pet's overall cancer risk significantly. Spay and neuter surgery also helps prevent misbehaviors such as territorial spraying, displaying aggression around humans and other pets, and straying into potential danger. Our veterinarian in West Jordan recommends that you have this important wellness procedure performed as soon as your puppy or kitten is old enough to tolerate surgery.
Pet grooming is another important aspect of veterinary care in West Jordan -- and one we are happy to offer. Periodic grooming sessions enable our veterinarian to examine the skin for signs of irritation, infection or tumors, as well as the health of the eyes and ears. Bathing removes oils that might otherwise attract bacteria, while brushing and trimming the hair can remove painful matted clumps and help your pet feel cooler in hot weather. We can even trim your pet's nails to keep them from overgrowing, snagging on objects and injuring his toes.
If you can't take (or shouldn't) travel with your pet, leave him in the skilled care of our veterinary facility. We offer professional pet boarding to ensure that your animal receives the best of care while you are away. We not only provide the requisite feedings and other basic care, but we can also keep your pet on his medication schedule and provide other veterinary care as needed. If your pet experiences a sudden health issue, our emergency veterinarian in West Jordan is on hand to give lifesaving aid.
Pets can benefit greatly from regular dental care. By performing regular dental examinations, we can detect and treat tooth damage, gum disease and oral cancer. If your pet is experiencing dental pain, our veterinarian can provide prompt care to relieve the discomfort. Professional cleanings are another form of veterinary care in West Jordan. This procedure removes food particles and tartar that might otherwise cause dangerous decay and infections.
