South Valley Animal Clinic Launches New Website for Pet Owners

ALBUQUERQUE, NM--(Marketwire - Mar 11, 2012) - South Valley Animal Clinic and Equine Wellness announced the launch of a new website, The practice is committed to pet owner education and expanding access to veterinary care resources. As part of this mission, the new website features a 'Veterinary Topics' resource library with information on at-home pet care, a checklist to identify illnesses as well as pet training tips. The website also contains information on the equine vet's farm calls, equine wellness tips, house calls for small animals and an online veterinary prescription refill request service.

South Valley and Los Lunas pet owners have a new, online resource for answers to common pet care questions. Pet veterinarian and horse vets Dr. William Heite & Dr. Donna Trent-Heite announced that their practice, South Valley Animal Clinic and Equine Wellness, has launched a new website. The new site is designed to help pet owners quickly find answers to common veterinary care questions.

As pet and horse veterinarians, their primary goal is to help all companion animals lead active, healthy lives, said the veterinarians. A healthy life starts with at-home preventive care, according the clinic staff. As a practice, the veterinary team strongly emphasizes pet owner education since informed pet owners are able to provide a higher standard of care for their pets.

The new 'Veterinary Topics' library forms the core of the website's pet owner education program. The library includes a wide variety of articles on basic and advanced pet care, including obedience tips, videos demonstrating at-home care, and information on critical dog and cat vaccines. The Vetopedia is a glossary of common veterinary care terms to help pet owners better understand the terms pet vets and equine vets use when treating animals.

The doctors at South Valley Animal Clinic and Equine Wellness understand that all pet owners want what's best for the animals in their life. Unfortunately, there is a lot of misinformation on the internet, and it can be difficult to find answers from reputable sources. The new 'Veterinary Topics' library is a trusted source upon which pet owners can refer to when they need immediate, reliable answers to common pet care questions.

The Veterinary Topics library also features a checklist for helping pet owners better identify the signs of illness or poisoning in pets. For example, pets that ingest chocolate need immediate urgent care, and the article helps explain which signs indicate potential chocolate poisoning.

After-hours emergencies can be especially difficult for pet owners. Emergency care can be expensive, but may be necessary to save a pet's life. Many pet owners are left wondering whether their pet's symptoms require an urgent care appointment, or if their pet will in fact be just fine until morning. The animal clinic always urges pet owners to seek immediate treatment and the ability to identifying the warning signs of illness and poisoning ensures that no red flag is missed.

In addition to pet owner education, the website features information on the practice's services, including farm visits by the horse veterinarians, and house calls for dogs and cats.

If pet owners cannot find the information they need in the Veterinary Topics library, Vetopedia or Services, they can also visit the website's blog and post a pet care question for the Albuquerque veterinary team.
