Microchips can help your lost pet find its way home. The universal product that we use is the AKC microchip. The chip is injected into the scruff of your pet between the shoulder blades. This injection is no more uncomfortable than any other injection or vaccine. As an option, we offer microchipping at the time your pet is under anesthesia. After the purchase of your pet’s microchip, a one time registration fee is required. You can do this by mail or online.
Health certificates are often required by airlines when taking your pet on an airplane trip to another state. Your pet will be examined by a doctor and if it is considered safe to travel, a special set of forms will be filled out and signed. It is important to check with your airline for specific travel requirements and timelines. Please have your destination address available when scheduling your pet’s appointment for their Health Certificate.
Our office cannot do International Health Certificates at this time.
While I waited to see Dr. Barrett for the first time, a kitten that had just been hit by a car was brought in. I waited while Dr. Barrett tended to the kitten. While waiting for her to see Kali and me, I got the sense that this was a place that really put animals first. And I was right. The moment Dr. Barrett walked in the exam room, I immediately knew she would be our vet. Kali was a puppy then and was on the bench. Instead of having Kali put on the exam table, Dr. Barrett got on the ground on her knees, eye to eye with Kali and introduced herself this way. She instantly won me over.
Dr. Barrett has a great “bedside manner” and has comforted this nervous Mom more than once. I recommended them to a friend who drives from San Fernando Valley to have her three dogs cared for. I recently started looking for property to purchase. I can’t imagine taking my fur babies anywhere else so I have limited my search to the surrounding areas of Moorpark!
