PORTSMOUTH, VA--(Marketwire - Aug 30, 2011) - The Churchland Animal Clinic in Portsmouth, a veterinary hospital and animal vet clinic for pet patients in the Portsmouth area, has announced their new website, found on the Internet at The small animal hospital is privately owned and serves pet parents and animals at two different locations in the Portsmouth area. The veterinarian and staff members at Churchland Animal Clinic have the "committed to caring for your companions" motto. The new website is going to be an additional resource to help pet owners to care for their pet companions.

The Churchland Animal Clinic has four veterinarians at its two locations. In addition, a number of licensed veterinary technicians are employed by Churchland Animal Clinic.

The new website for this veterinarian in Portsmouth plans to include features and tools that address topics that matter to pet owners. "Our veterinary hospital has a responsibility to do more than simply provide emergency and routine medical care," said Dr. Talmadge Yeatts Jr., a veterinarian at the Portsmouth animal clinic. "We believe that each veterinarian at our animal hospital needs to put the pet patients and pet owners first and ensure that all surgeries, exams, and procedures are well understood."

With that in mind, the new website for the veterinary hospital has expanded their website to include topics such as "What We Can Help Your Pet With," "Choosing Your Pet," "Finding Your Pet," and "Bringing Your Pet Home." Additionally, the site includes a "Vetopedia," a dictionary that explains the veterinary hospital terms that pet parents may be hearing when their pet comes in for treatment or check-ups. The animal vet clinic also offers a "Newsletter" section on the site, where pet parents can access the Churchland Animal Clinic's past and current animal hospital newsletters. The newsletters discuss many topics of interest to pet owners, as well as offering a section just for kids. The kids section of the newsletters help children learn more about their pets and other animals through games, quizzes, puzzles, and coloring books.

Other new site options include the Diagnostic Imaging Atlas (DIA) videos, which discuss a wide range of typical pet health issues on video. The videos are available at any time on the website and include topics such as nutrition for pets, obesity in pets, heartworm control, flea and tick control, pet exercise, geriatric pet care, and vaccinations.

The new veterinary blog feature is also new to the website and will be regularly updated by the animal vet clinic staff. According to the staff, the blog will feature information on pet wellness, common issues, and handling pet care at home. More information is available online at
