Our Services

If you love your animal, you can count on The Fe Animal Hospital to care for your pet with love and compassion. We pride ourselves on providing the highest quality of care while being one of the most affordable veterinary clinics in Galveston County.

Puppy/Kitten exams
Bringing home a new puppy or kitten is an exciting time for your family. Our team can help you start your new puppy or kitten off right! Our vets recommend that you set up your pet’s first visit with us soon after adoption. It’s important to get your new pet set up with a good parasite and vaccination program as well as a thorough examination to assure your puppy or kitten is healthy and prepared to stay that way.
Wellness exams

From the first visit and throughout their entire life, we’ll be there to provide the absolute best care for your pet. Our wellness care measures can maximize the fullness of your pet’s life, both in terms of what your pet can do and for how long. Annual physical exams are essential! Many of our younger patients have yearly exams, but we recommend exams every six months for aging pets or those who have medical conditions.

Sick Exams

When your pet is ill or showing signs of illness, please bring them to us for immediate care. We will evaluate them from nose-to-tail and prescribe any diagnostics we deem necessary for determining your pet’s condition. The quicker your pet’s health status is determined, the faster we can provide treatment.

In-house Labs / Outside Labs

Our in-house and outside laboratory capabilities at our animal hospital allow us to perform many important lab tests quickly and efficiently. We are equipped to perform complete blood counts, blood chemistries, pre-anesthetic blood work, wellness checks, and more at our animal hospital.

X-rays

X-rays are a tool used by our veterinarians to help diagnose diseases and determine underlying causes. They help give our veterinarians the opportunity to make important decisions quickly and accurately.

Routine Surgeries

Our veterinarians and technicians are trained to perform routine surgeries and provide your pet with the best care possible. Safety is also one of our greatest concerns at our animal hospital.

Dental Cleanings

Dental disease can be the origin of more complex, life-threatening issues. Routine dental cleanings and a home dental care regime have the potential to add years of vigor to your pet’s life. A dental exam and cleaning are performed under general anesthesia for a safe and thorough procedure. Your pet’s teeth are cleaned of plaque and calculus, and the tooth enamel is polished, followed by a fluoride treatment to further protect the teeth and strengthen enamel.

Hospitalization

Pet hospitalization can be a stressful time for pet parents, and we want you to know that our team will be here every step of the way when an unexpected health event occurs. While your pet is with us, our team will call with any news or updates to your pet’s condition, so you’re fully aware of everything going on with their health.

Boarding

Ease your concerns about leaving your pet behind while you’re away: Let our qualified staff take care of him or her. We are happy to accommodate any special care or needs your pet might have. We have day boarding and overnight boarding options available. All pets must be at least 16 weeks old – no exceptions.

All pets admitted to the hospital must be current on all required vaccinations:

Dogs: Distemper, Parvo, Bordetella (Kennel Cough), Rabies and Canine Influenza

Cats: FVRCP (Distemper, Upper Respiratory) and Rabies

These vaccines must have been administered by a veterinarian and we require written or telephoned proof of vaccination.

All admitted pets must have had a complete physical examination performed at our hospital within the past year. In addition, boarders must have had a negative intestinal parasite screen (fecal exam) result within the past year. This is for the safety of all of our patients. If a pet needs these procedures, they will be performed and charged accordingly.

All pets will be examined for the presence of fleas and ticks upon admission to the hospital. Pets who have any ticks at all will NOT be admitted for boarding. If your pet has ticks, please treat him/her for ticks a few days before your boarding reservation. Pets with fleas will be treated (administration of a commercial flea product or bathed) at a regular charge to the owner.

Preventative Medications

Parasites and the diseases carried by our pets can all be prevented with proper medication and maintenance. Heartworm, another dangerous parasite that lives in dogs and cats’ hearts, damages the heart muscle and can be fatal without proper care. Our veterinarians will work with you to set up a comprehensive, personalized vaccination schedule to protect your pet from parasites.

Nail Trims

For many pet owners, trimming a pet’s nails—dog or cat—can seem like a daunting task. And, if you haven’t regularly trimmed your pet’s nails since he was young, chances are you’ll have a difficult time doing it effectively now. Keeping your pet’s nails trimmed is important for a number of reasons. At our hospital, we can help you keep your pet’s nails trimmed at the perfect length.

Allergy Testing

Pet allergies are a common problem, but symptoms associated with animal allergies can also indicate more serious pet health conditions. When necessary, our veterinary staff will perform blood work and other tests to determine the cause of your pet’s discomfort.
