Frequently Asked Questions

Why does my pet need a dental procedure?

Significant amounts of plaque and tartar on your pet's teeth lead to gingivitis and in any cases to serious periodontal diseases. It not only causes harm to the teeth, but also to internal organs including the liver, kidneys, and heart. Pets with the benefit of regular veterinary dental cleanings can live much longer than animals without veterinary dental care. Keep your pet healthy longer by scheduling an appointment for your precious pet at Mancos Valley Veterinary Hospital.

At what age should I have my pet spayed or neutered?

Our doctors recommend spaying or neutering any pet not used for breeding between four and six months of age. If you have an intact pet that is older, please contact our hospital for a consultation. Sterilization not only stops unwanted litters, but it also prevents certain types of cancers and diseases later in life. Schedule a spay or neuter procedure for your pet companion today at Mancos Valley Veterinary Hospital.

What financing options do you offer?

Full payment is required at time of service, allowing our clinic to operate at the high level of care that our customers expect and deserve.
