What to Expect

Our goal at Huntsville Pet Clinic has been to assemble a veterinary health care team committed to providing exceptional client service and veterinary health care. Our commitment to you is to continue to offer the the best veterinary care we can provide at our office with the equipment we have available, as well as friendly, highly trained, and knowledgable staff members who will treat your pets as we would our own.  We will not hesitate to offer and recommend a referral to a specialist, when we feel that is in your pet's best interest.  Optimal pet care is our top priority.

Your pet's annual vet check-up will include a physical exam.  We know and understand all pets are not created equally.  We understand each pet has their own personality, as well as health concerns.  Our doctor will make recommendations and suggestions based on each individual pet's needs.  We will discuss treatment options that are recommended, but leave the decision making up to the pet owner.  We understand pets have different lifestyle needs, and will make our  recommendations based on your pet's lifestyle.  

Dr. DuVall is gentle, experienced, compassionate, and willing to explain all the procedures your pet undergoes.  It is important to us that our clients and our patients are comfortable when they visit.  We pride ourselves with staying up-to-date with the safest, most effective anesthetic protocols. Our patient's safety and well-being is of utmost importance to our doctor and staff.  All surgical patients will have a physical exam, and minimal lab database work-up prior to their procedure.  We offer comprehensive, in-house laboratory bloodwork for all surgical/anesthetic patients.  All surgical patient's will receive maintenance fluid therapy, a warming system to maintain optimal body temperature and comfort during their procedure, as well as monitoring of vital signs, during the procedure as well as recovery.  There is always an inherent risk with anesthesia, especially for very old, very young or very ill pets, but we make a concerted effort to minimize those risks, and lessen the chance for post-operative complications.  Dr. DuVall will evaluate your pet prior to procedure, and will communicate with the pet owner any recommendations he sees fit.

Dr. DuVall may recommend a referral to a specialty hospital for advanced diagnostics or treatment, or a local emergency hospital for overnight monitoring and treatment if it is in your pet's best interest.
