Microchip Identification

kansas city pet microchipping

A lost pet is a frightening situation with often devastating consequences. Studies have shown more than 10 million pets get lost each year and approximately 90 percent of those found would not have been returned to their owners without some form of permanent lost pet identification.

This is why the team at Camelot Court Animal Clinic considers microchip pet IDs a fundamental way to protect your pet and an important part of responsible pet ownership. We use the Avid microchip system. Each microchip registers the animal with a unique identification number, which is filed in a database with your contact information. The contact information can be updated anytime, and it is important to remember to do so whenever your information changes. If your pet is lost, the microchip can be scanned by animal control officers, at shelters and at veterinary hospitals in the U.S. and in many foreign countries as well.

This safe, reliable and permanent pet identification takes less than 10 seconds to implant, and can save you and your pet days, weeks or more of fear and anguish.

Behavior Counseling Services

Even with the right training and lots of attention and love, your dog or cat can develop bad habits or unwanted behaviors. Please don’t make the mistake of believing that you and your family must live with these problems or worse, consider giving up your pet.

Camelot Court Animal Clinic offers behavior counseling for many of your pet's problems, including inappropriate urination or defecation, urine marking, aggression, nipping and biting, separation anxiety, inappropriate chewing and barking, digging, chewing and the introduction of new pets into the household.

Common Causes of Pet Behavioral Problems

Behavior problems can be environmental, such as a schedule change or introduction of a new baby or pet; learned, as a result of unintentional positive reinforcement; or genetic. Furthermore, any painful disease or condition, or degenerative changes associated with aging, can cause or contribute to behavior problems.

For example, a pet that is fearful of children may become more reactive, irritable, and aggressive as conditions such as dental problems, arthritis, or an infection make him or her more uncomfortable or less mobile. Addressing the underlying medical problem or providing pain relief, along with behavior modification techniques, can often resolve some of these problems.

Your pet's assessment begins with their clinical history and a thorough medical examination. Before beginning behavior therapy, any medical problems that have been diagnosed will be treated. If we cannot help with your pet's behavior problem, we can refer you to an animal-behavior specialist.

House Calls

To provide you with the most comprehensive veterinary care possible in Kansas City, we also offer house calls. Simply, there are times when it is best that you and your pet remain at home where you both are most relaxed and comfortable.

Services we are able to provide at home include wellness examinations, vaccinations, routine medical care, blood draws and other general services that do not require diagnostic and other medical technology. Certainly the most difficult, though most important, house call we make is when a beloved pet has reached his or her last day. Being at home, surrounded by loving and familiar faces is a comfort to you and your pet, and an important aspect of Camelot Court Animal Clinic's veterinary services.

End-of-Life Planning

End-of-Life Planning

For many pet owners, even thinking about their pet’s final days is difficult and emotional. Animals are a part of your family and there is a strong bond born from years of loyal companionship that makes this time particularly hard to bear.

We encourage you to talk with the veterinary healthcare team about these issues before they become an urgent matter. Learn more about your options, including crematory and burial services, make some key decisions ahead of time, and ask us to add this information to your pet's record. Taking the time to plan, as challenging as it may be, will lessen the pain and stress for you and your pet.

All of us at Camelot Court Animal Clinic will do the very best to help you prepare for these important issues with the compassion and sensitivity they require.

We offer at-home euthanasia on a case-by-case basis.
