General services include general health examinations, vaccinations, medications, surgical procedures including spays and neuters, boarding, and general dentistry.

Other amenities include digital radiography, ultrasonography, and in house blood and urine analyses.

In addition, we offer reproductive services including breeding timing, artificial insemination, semen collection, evaluation, and frozen storage.

ICU & Hospitalization (top)

Pet ICU and Hospitalization

Kingdom Animal Hospital is able to provide full hospitalization services to our patients when necessary. Upon stabilization of a critically ill patient we are able to provide appropriate life preserving services such as oxygen supplementation in our oxygen cage, temperature support in our incubator, accurate intravenous fluid and drug delivery with automated pumps, and the care and gentle handling your family member deserves.

Though we do not provide around-the-clock 24-hour monitoring, Dr. Knight, or technicians under instruction, often go back late after-hours to check on critical patients.

Our ability to hospitalize and support our patients while they heal are at the heart of our mission to provide quality veterinary care to the Bryan/College Station community.

 

Vaccinations & Preventive Medicine (top)

Pet Vaccination

Puppies and Kittens

Vaccines to prevent infectious diseases should be given every 3-4 weeks starting at 6 weeks of age.

Puppy vaccines include DHPP (distemper, hepatitis, parvovirus, and parainfluenza) and DHLPP (all previous plus leptospirosis).

Kitten vaccines include FVRCP (feline viral rhinotracheitis, calicivirus, and panleukopenia) and possibly FeLV (feline leukemia virus) if they will be exposed to unknown status cats. Kittens should be tested for the Feline Leukemia virus before starting their vaccinations.

Rabies vaccination is given after 12 weeks of age. We also recommend a fecal parasite examinations for intestinal parasites on the initial visit. During the initial visit, we also will discuss heartworm and flea/tick prevention which should be given monthly and continued for life.

Dogs and Cats

Rabies vaccination may be given biannually once an animal has received two vaccinations within 12 months. We recommend boosting DHLPP in dogs and FVRCP and FeLV annually. We also recommend annually testing dogs for heartworm infestation and recommend that heartworm and flea/tick prevention be given monthly for the pet's entire life.

Ferrets

Ferrets should be vaccinated against distemper annually once they have received their initial two vaccines 4 weeks apart. Rabies vaccination are recommended at 12 weeks of age and boosted annually.

Ferrets too should be given monthly heartworm prevention for their life as well.

Spay and Neuter (top)

Spay and Neuter

Spaying or neutering is one of the greatest gifts you can provide your pet, your family, and your community. These routine medical procedures not only help control pet over population, but they may also prevent medical and behavioral problems from developing, allowing your pet to lead a longer, healthier and happier life.

No More Homeless Pets

4-6 million dogs and cats are euthanized yearly because they are not wanted. Having your pet spayed or neutered frees up homes for homeless pets that are already born.

Healthier and Safer Pets

If spayed before first heat cycle, females have less than 1% chance of getting breast cancer. Also spaying eliminates risk of ovarian and uterine cancer, uterine infection, and unwanted pregnancies. Neutering eliminates the risk of testicular cancer, reduces the rate of prostate disease, and if done early enough reduces marking and aggressive behavior. Intact males are more likely to try to escape backyards to find mates and may end up getting into fights, lost, hit by a car, or in some cases shot.

More Information

The humane society (one of the nation's largest animal protection societies) has a page regarding the myths and facts about spaying and neutering. We strongly encourage you to visit the page and learn about the benefits of having your pet spayed/neutered.

Exotic Animals (top)

Exotic Pets

With the benefit of Dr. Lara’s experience and leadership, Kingdom Animal Hospital is able to cater to the needs of a variety of species.

All 3 veterinarians have had experience treating illness in birds, reptiles of all sorts, exotic mammals such as rats, rabbits, ferrets, and hedgehogs, and also sugar-gliders.

Our abilities extend not only to exotic animal medicine but also to surgery. We specialize in ferret adrenalectomies (the removal of a ferret's adrenal glands).

The Veterinary Teaching Hospital at Texas A&M refers the majority of after-hours exotic animal emergencies to our door.

 

Boarding (top)

Boarding is available for our clients. Friendly kennel staff to care for your pets needs. This includes dogs, cats and exotics. All patients must be up to date on vaccines including Bordetella. Dogs that stay 3 nights or more get a free bath the day they go home.

Dogs and cats are pretreated with Capstar (flea prevention) before boarding. Reservations recommended! We specialize in boarders which may require extra medical attention or medications.

Dentistry (top)

Pet Dental Care

Dental disease is the most frequently diagnosed health problem for pets. 80% of dogs and 70% of cats show signs of disease by age 3. Studies have shown that keeping your pets’ teeth healthy may add 10% to their life span (i.e. 1.2 years for a 12 year average).

Certain breeds and certain pets are more likely to have recurrent dental problems. Annual exams to check the teeth is imperative. Although often a silent disease, be sure to report signs such as bad breath, difficulty chewing, changes in eating or weight, or pawing at the face.

Besides the local pain of dental problems, infections in the mouth can lead to respiratory, heart, and kidney disease. Similar to humans (who also brush once to twice daily), pets may need dental cleanings every 6-12 months to keep their teeth healthy. In order to perform cleanings thoroughly, scale and polish pets’ teeth, they must be fully anesthetized.

Kingdom Animal Hospital’s dental cleanings involve having all teeth ultrasonically scaled, probed for problem areas which are then addressed, polished, and then treated with fluoride foam.
