 At Bernalillo Pet Care Center, we understand how important your pet is to your family, which is why we will make sure they get the best treatment possible.

From the first visit and throughout their entire life, our veterinary staff is there to provide the absolute best care for your pet. Our pet preventive health care measures can maximize the fullness of that life both in terms of what your pet can do and for how long. We encourage examinations every 6 months because many disease conditions can progress very quickly. We will tailor which blood and urine tests are best for your pet’s age, and clearly explain when additional tests like blood pressure measurement, x-rays, or fecal testing are necessary.

We offer a full range of vaccinations and counsel pet owners on individualized vaccination protocols based on the lifestyle and risks of each patient. We also recommend and offer annual screening for intestinal parasites, heartworms, and tick-borne diseases in dogs; as well as Feline Immunodeficiency Virus (FIV) and Feline Leukemia Virus (FeLV) in cats.

We recommend older pets have annual screening blood work, which allows for early detection and treatment of acute illnesses and chronic diseases. This can be done in our hospital in as little as 15 minutes. We require that all pets have blood work prior to anesthesia.

General wellness surgeries, including spays, neuters, and dental procedures, are offered regularly. Estimates for these procedures are typically provided during a wellness visit. Active patients can receive surgical and dental consults at no charge.

We do also provide affordable euthanasia services, with options for cremation.

As a part of our preventative care program, we also offer wellness plans for your pets.
