WELCOME TO POV's BLOG!

Why do we do what we do at Pend Oreille Veterinary Service? Because we love your pets and truly care about their well being. Working in veterinary medicine can be exciting, fun, heartwarming, harrowing, painstaking... the adjectives go on and on. From the client relations team to caretakers, technicians to doctors, we all play our role in providing the best care anywhere for you and your companion. Our mission: "At Pend Oreille Veterinary Service, we pledge to provide excellent and unparalleled service to our clients, compassionate and cutting edge medical care to our patients and commitment to our community since 1964 and far into the future." This is what we strive for every day! There are so many cool things we get to do - there's wellness exams and vaccines, variety of prescription diets plus nutritional counseling to go with them, annual and speciality blood panels, pet lodging, grooming and training for puppies and adults, routine and advanced dentistry including digital dental radiographs (x-rays), extractions, and the occasional root canal in specialized cases. Our talented doctors of course perform soft tissue surgeries like the routine spay and neuter, as well as certain orthopedic procedures. After hours, weekend and holiday emergency care is available; our lovely doctors are on-call through even in those wee hours of the night! Cutting edge digital imaging including endoscopy (scoping with a camera), radiographs and ultrasonography anywhere from pregnancy all the way to heart scans and beyond! Let me tell you the list doesn't stop there! We also offer the alternative services of acupuncture and cold laser therapy that can help with pain and healing for different ailments routine or not. Our extra special Dr. Bruce Vogel and Dr. Christina Ponsness even care for the unique pocket pets like rabbits, hamsters, guinea pigs, ferrets, etc. Dr. Vogel will also treat our avian and reptilian friends. These are just a few things that we do here at POVS. It's pretty incredible all the neat things we offer! I could go on but I think you get the picture.
