Eastview Veterinary Clinic is open Monday through Saturday for routine and sick animal visits.  Surgeries are scheduled Monday through Friday and evening office hours are available Monday through Thursday.  Annual physical exams are recommended for both dogs and cats to update vaccinations and do a fecal exam for parasites.  To view photos, click here.  If your pet is going to a boarding kennel, be sure to check their vaccination requirements well before the time comes to leave your pet.  Many require the Bordetella (kennel cough) vaccine which is not a normally recommended yearly vaccination.
