Services We Offer

Here at the South Side Animal Clinic, providing you with outstanding customer services, while also offering your pet both conventional and holistic veterinarian services is our sole goal. We go above and beyond to uncover the root of the source, ultimately choosing the least harmful treatment method that puts your pet on a path to lasting recovery. For whatever problems your pet may be experiencing, our team is here to give him or her the best quality care.

Types of Medicine We Offer

  • Veterinary Medicine and Surgery: This provides you with prevention, control, diagnosis, and treatment of various diseases that may be affecting the health of your domestic animal. We also provide preventative methods that can help eliminate the possibility of transmitting animal diseases to people. 
  • Holistic Medicine: Additionally, we offer holistic medicine treatments that involve an array of gentle, minimally invasive modalities. These holistic treatments also place a high value on stress reduction and the overall well-being of the patient. Holistic medicine can be used to treat many chronic diseases and related issues.

Lost Pets

One of the most tragic pet problems when an animal goes missing. Each year, thousands of beloved pets become separated from their owners for a variety of reasons. This is why we highly recommend chipping your pet. The microchip is a very small device that is inserted just below the skin. With a microchip in your pet, you and your animal can easily be reunited if ever separated. The process of inserting a microchip consists of a quick injection that is practically painless for your pet. In fact, most pets don’t even notice the injection happening.

Unwanted Litters

You love your pet, but you don’t necessarily want to multiply the number of pets you in your home. Unwanted litters can take owners by surprise. Even with your best efforts, it is still possible for your pet to breed with another animal and produce litters of kittens or puppies. While they may be are adorable, overpopulation of pets is a serious problem. A simple spay or neuter surgery can ensure that you never have to worry about finding homes for dozens of new babies in your care. Spaying and neutering is the humane thing to do in order to avoid adding more to the homeless population of dogs and cats in the world.

Dental Pet Problems

Even though your pet doesn’t need his or her teeth to be brushed and flossed like humans, he or she is still prone to dental problems just like us. It’s common for pets to develop tartar buildup, bleeding gums, loose teeth and even periodontal disease. Talk to our team about how you can provide proper dental care for your animal.

Parasites and Prevention

It is not uncommon for pets to host parasites. Some parasites can cause minor irritation, while others can be life-threatening. It is best to have at least an annual appointment to look out for parasites, or contact us if your pet develops unordinary behaviors. If something does show up on an examination, a health protocol will also be induced to help with the pet. A health protocol can be put in place even if a major health issue is not spotted. We do this when we see a potential vulnerability that can lead to a bigger issue.

Contact Us

We also offer nutrition consultation, in-house laboratory services, and at home wellness care. No matter when your pet may need help, we will be there for you. We are reachable by phone 24 hours a day. Leave a message, and we will get back to you as soon as possible. If live in the Rolla, Waynesville, St. Roberts, or St. James area, our team at South Side Animal Clinic are here to provide you and your pet with quality health care service. Contact us today to see how we can help you and your animal.
