Large Animal Exams Help to Keep Them Healthy
Large animals, including those commonly known as farm animals, deserve top-notch veterinary care. At Karns Animal Clinic, we believe that our animals are members of the family who should receive the care that helps them to thrive. It isn’t always easy for Knoxville, TN, residents to find a veterinarian who can take care of livestock and horses. We want to make this as easy as possible for our clients.
Regular Large Animal Care
Large animals need to have check ups regularly to ensure they are healthy. This may help to find conditions and illnesses before they become life-threatening. The exact schedule you need to have the animals seen depends on their needs. Ideally, all large animals will have a checkup at least once per year. Sometimes, more are needed if the animal has health conditions. This is also a good time for them to receive preventative care and immunizations when necessary.
Urgent Large Animal Care
Sometimes, things happen with animals that aren’t really an emergency, but they can’t wait for a regular visit. It is very difficult for people who love their animals to see them in pain. Our veterinary staff is ready to handle urgent visits with large animals. You just need to contact us to let us know what’s going on so that we can determine how we can help your animal.
Emergency Large Animal Care
Large animals sometimes need emergency care. We do offer this service at our Knoxville, TN, office. If possible, call ahead if you are bringing the animal in so we know to expect you. This also lets us determine whether we have a vet and staff that can handle the situation right away.
