Comprehensive medical, surgical, and dental care.


Craven Creek’s Services

We pride ourselves on offering comprehensive veterinary care to our clients and will promise to be there for you through the entire process.

Wellness Care & Vaccines

We feel like preventative care is the most important when it comes to your pets’ health. We offer wellness programs tailored to each pet, depending on species, age, and breed. Wellness exams are critical in identifying early signs of future health issues and disease prevention. Preventing illnesses is always easier and more cost-effective than treating them. At Craven Creek Vet, we will choose appropriate vaccines, heartworm, flea, and tick prevention that fits your pets’ lifestyle.


We know any surgical procedure can be just as stressful for you as it is for your pet. We will ensure that you understand the diagnosis, process of the procedure, and likely outcome. Our highly experienced staff will ensure that your pet is safe before, during, and after a procedure. We highly recommend getting pre-operative blood work, an intravenous catheter, and fluids to keep your pet stable during surgery.


From the very first day you bring a new pet home and throughout your pet’s lifetime, nutrition plays a critical role in your pet’s overall health and well-being. Many pet owners take nutrition for granted, in part because the availability of so many nutritionally complete commercial diets has taken much of the guesswork out of choosing a suitable diet for a pet. However, did you know that your pet’s nutritional needs change with age and activity level? Did you know that specially formulated diets can help manage various medical conditions, including kidney disease, diabetes, arthritis, and heart disease? Do you know how many calories your pet should have each day and whether you are over or underfeeding? Are you comfortable reading and interpreting pet food labels?

Whether your pet has special dietary needs or needs to shed (or gain) a few pounds, our staff can help you accomplish your goals and keep your pet in good health. We offer counseling in dietary selection and feeding practices for pets during various life stages, such as growth, adulthood, pregnancy and nursing, and the “golden years.” If your pet has a medical condition, we can help you select the most appropriate diet to suit your pet’s needs.

It can be easy for a pet owner to become overwhelmed by the available selection of pet foods, all of which claim to have specific benefits for pets. We can offer expert advice to help you negotiate the complicated array of choices. Let our staff help you achieve and maintain optimal nutrition for your pet.

On-Site Laboratory

Our pets cannot tell us what’s wrong, and that’s why laboratory tests and diagnostic imaging are so important. But, we do more than offer you state-of-the-art diagnostic tests; we choose the tests that will guide us toward the perfect, tailor-made solution for your pet’s needs.

Our pet hospital is equipped with in-house laboratory testing. We can also perform urine and fecal tests, obtain various cytology or biopsy samples and utilize multiple reference laboratories for more specialized testing. We can also perform in-hospital testing for canine parvovirus, feline immunodeficiency virus (FIV), feline leukemia (FeLV), pancreatitis, heartworm testing, and tick-borne diseases.

We are committed to providing accurate and timely lab results for your pet’s benefit, thanks to our extensive in-house laboratory capabilities.

End of Life Care

Pets are members of our families, and having to say goodbye can be one of the hardest things a loving family has to do.

Should you experience a time when you are making difficult decisions about end-of-life care for your pet, please know that the veterinarians and staff of Craven Creek Vet are here to help you through this process.

Being animal lovers and owners ourselves, we understand how hard it is to measure your pet’s condition and his or her quality of life. We will take the time to discuss the physical and emotional factors involved in making end-of-life decisions and give you the time you need to consider your pet’s unique situation.

If you decide that euthanasia is necessary, we will provide a quiet and comfortable place and make the process as peaceful and painless as possible.


Each year, thousands of pets go missing, and many don’t make it back home. Many pets (especially indoor pets) don’t wear collars or tags. Even if your pet wears a collar and identification tag, collars can break off, and tags can become damaged and unreadable, so these forms of identification may not be enough to ensure your pet’s safe return. Your pet needs a form of identification that is reliable and can’t get lost, stolen, or damaged. A microchip is a secure, simple form of identification that can significantly increase the chance that your pet will return safely.

A microchip is about the size and shape of a rice grain and is placed underneath your pet’s skin between the shoulder blades. Microchip implantation takes only a few minutes and is very safe. Each microchip is unique and carries vital information about your pet—including your name, address, and contact information. When a microchip is implanted, the pet owner is given a registration form to complete. Registering the number on the microchip includes your pet in a national pet recovery database. Veterinary hospitals, animal shelters, and animal control offices across the country are equipped with special electronic scanners that can detect the microchip and read the identification number. If a lost pet is picked up by animal control or found by a good Samaritan and presented to a veterinarian, a quick scan of the microchip reveals the identification number. A toll-free phone call to the pet recovery database alerts the microchip company that a lost pet has been identified. The pet owner can then be contacted and reunited with his or her pet!

Young puppies and kittens can receive microchips, but even if your pet is already an adult, you should consider microchipping. Even indoor pets can get outside accidentally and get lost, so if you’re relying on other forms of identification, you could be placing your pet at risk. Microchipping is a safe, effective way to help ensure your pet’s return if the unthinkable happens.

Dental Care

Maintaining good oral health for your pet is one of the best ways to improve their quality of life and extend life expectancy. Each prophylactic dental cleaning includes ultrasonic scaling, polishing, and digital radiography. We will also provide you with tips and tools to maintain good oral health at home.

Digital Radiology

At Craven Creek Vet, we offer digital radiography, a form of X-ray imaging where digital X-ray sensors are used instead of traditional film. The advantages of using this important diagnostic tool include time efficiency from bypassing chemical processing, an exact digital image, and the ability to transfer and enhance images digitally. These images are immediately accessible to our doctors and our clients; they are easily shared between our hospital and any other specialty veterinary practices, including:

  • Orthopedic
  • Internal Medicine
  • Emergency
  • and more!

We provide a board-certified radiologist review of any images taken here with very timely reports by sending images to Antech Imaging Services. These tools and more help our hospital to provide your loved one with the excellent care they deserve.

Radiographs are an essential tool that can help us make a correct diagnosis for your pet. Our radiology service is staffed by caring, skilled professionals who will provide state-of-the-art care with compassion and expertise.

On-Site Pharmacy

To ensure we can deliver therapy as quickly as possible, Craven Creek Vet maintains a substantial in-house inventory, including:

  • Many pharmaceuticals
  • Medicated shampoos
  • Oral and topical flea, tick, and heartworm preventatives
  • Supplements

You and your pet will benefit from our well-stocked pharmacy. You can rely on us whether your pet requires medication for a chronic medical condition or needs short-term medication while recovering from an illness, injury, or surgery. When you purchase medications from our pharmacy, you can be assured that your pet’s medications were obtained from safe, reliable sources and stored under optimal conditions. Our trained staff will fill your prescriptions with care and attention to detail while noting your pet’s specific needs. We will also provide you with accurate information about your pet’s medications, including proper dosing information, and alert you to any potential drug side effects or interactions.
