Routine Preventative Care
Each of our patients is a unique and special creature made up of multiple systems. We take the time to get to know the whole individual and personalize our wellness care recommendations and vaccination schedules for each patient.
Our dog and cat patients age much faster than we do as humans. They also have a limited ability to communicate changes in their health. This often leads to medical care that is far too reactive. When Veterinarians catch illness late in the course of the disease, it limits the potential treatments and leads to poor outcomes.
We believe that when we are caring for your beloved friend, it is far better to be proactive. We recommend semi-annual wellness exams for our patients. Our doctors and staff are trained to recognize signs and symptoms of illnesses early, and they are well versed in preventative medicine. We know that in order to provide excellent medical care for our patients, we depend on open communication and team work between us as your veterinary team, and you, the client. During our semi-annual examinations, we always perform a complete physical examination of our patient. We will ask you many questions about your observations of your furry friend in their home environment. We will take the time to address all of your questions and concerns. Any diagnostic or treatment recommendations will involve a thorough explanation, so you have a complete understanding and are involved in every step.
Imaging / Laboratory
Are you tired of going to your doctor just to be sent elsewhere for lab work or imaging. No one enjoys the anxiety that accompanies having to wait weeks to receive test results or even worse having to schedule a follow-up appointment to get them.
Let us wow you with our speed and accuracy! Our Doctors are experts in the use of our in-house technologies. We have onsite x-ray and ultrasound machines. And we have a full in-house laboratory. Our Doctors and Staff are able to use these to provide you and your loved one with a fast and accurate diagnosis.
Having a sick pet is a physical and emotional challenge. We completely understand the feeling of helplessness that accompanies caring for someone who cannot speak for themselves. Knowing how to use advanced tools and technologies allows us to figure out the problem that is ailing your loved friend faster. The faster we can identify the problem, the faster we can fix it and get both of you back to your normal daily life.
In house radiographs aid our ability to make a rapid diagnosis.
We have the most experienced ultrasonographer in southwest Oklahoma.

At Hergenrether Animal Hospital we treat every surgical case with the upmost care. We know that any anesthetic or surgical procedure is a major event for your beloved friend. That is why we always provide the best anesthetic and surgical approach to achieve a safe and successful surgical outcome. Surgeries are always performed in a sterile surgical suite using sterile techniques.
Every surgical patient has their own dedicated veterinary nurse that follows them through their stay at our hospital. That nurse will be there from the pre-op exam through surgical preparation and anesthesia. He or she will provide close personal monitoring during the surgery and ensure a safe recovery. The nurse will help with all post operative care and provide complete discharge instructions when we send your friend home to you.
Our standard of care requires for our patients’ safety that every animal receives a preoperative examination and lab work. Each surgical patient has an IV catheter placed and is administered temperature controlled IV fluid therapy during surgery. We use electronic vital monitoring with each patient. And provide pain management following every surgical procedure.
We know you want your friend home with you as soon as possible. We discharge surgical patients when we know their care and comfort can be safely managed at home. We follow-up on all of our surgical patients once they are home. Any post-operative complications are addressed immediately.
We also provide a free bath and pedicure for each of our surgical patients.
We provide a completely sterile surgical environment.

Proper dental care is extremely important to overall health. Waiting to recommend dental care until after dental disease is established often leads to tooth extractions as well as oral and systemic disease. The mouth is the gateway to the rest of the body. Therefore, we recommend preventative and proactive dental care including daily dental brushing at home followed by yearly dental cleaning after the age of 2 years. Each of our patients receives a dental examination as part of their semi-annual physical examination. We provide complete dental care for our patients.
