Dr. Bozeman and Dr. Bridge believe in attaining optimal wellness for your pet. At Bozeman Animal Clinic, we firmly believe that preventative health care is the most important way to help your pet live a long, healthy and quality life. Early detection of disease is the key to maintaining vitality and longevity for your pet.
The veterinarians at Bozeman Animal Clinic believe that the basis for quality medicine begins with complete and thorough physical examinations of their patients. Whether your pet is being seen for vaccinations, a surgical procedure, or is experiencing medical problems, they will receive a thorough physical examination from our doctors. This physical examination will evaluate multiple organ systems including the eyes, ears, oral cavity, skin, abdominal organs, heart and lung systems, orthopedic, urogenital and the neurologic system. Your pet’s body weight and body condition will also be evaluated by our doctors. Nutritional recommendations may be made by our doctors to help your pet achieve ideal body condition. Examinations also give you an opportunity to present any questions you may have about your pet and their health. Annual examinations are recommended for every patient and semi-annual examinations are recommended for senior patients and patients with chronic illness.
At Bozeman Animal Clinic, we believe that a comprehensive vaccination protocol is essential to maintaining the health of your pet. Vaccinations stimulate your pet’s immune system to produce antibodies. These antibodies are important in defending the body against common, yet specific diseases. Without proper vaccination, your pet is not protected. Vaccinations are especially important for young puppies and kittens.
DA2PP( Distemper Combo)- This vaccination includes several viral organisms that help protect the health of your pet. Distemper, Adenovirus, Parainfluenza and Parvovirus are viral organisms that can cause gastrointestinal, respiratory, neurologic and liver problems in an unvaccinated patient. We recommend your puppy receive this vaccine starting at 8 weeks, then every 3 weeks until 3-4 months of age. This is then repeated one year later.
FVRCP (Distemper Combo)- This vaccination includes several viral organisms that help protect the health of your pet. Feline Viral Rhinotracheitis, Calicivirus, and Panleukopenia virus are viral organisms that can cause upper respiratory, gastrointestinal and neurologic problems in an unvaccinated cat. We recommend your kitten receive this vaccine starting at 8 weeks, then every 3 weeks until 3-4 months of age.
Did you know that 85% of the pets over 6 years of age have some form of periodontal disease? Both dogs and cats are susceptible to dental disease. Dental disease not only results in obvious bad breath, but can cause serious systemic problems in pets as well. Harmful bacteria that accumulate in your pet’s mouth can enter the bloodstream and compromise the function of vital organs such as kidneys, liver, bladder and even the heart. Good oral health care begins at home with regular brushings and an appropriate diet. Our qualified staff can show clients how to properly care for their pet’s teeth. We carry a complete line of dental care products to help your pet maintain good oral health. When necessary, we may recommend a professional dental cleaning at our hospital. This includes the removal of harmful plaque and tartar, polishing and a fluoride treatment to help prevent decay. For a complete oral exam and thorough cleaning, all pets must be anesthetized for a professional dental procedure.
Bozeman Animal Clinic provides puppy and kitten care packages specially designed to start the newest member of your family out right. These health care packages include examinations, vaccinations, parasite control, fecal testing, and health and behavior consultations- all for one discounted price.
Did you know that most dogs are considered a senior patient at the age of 7 and most cats will be considered senior at the age of 10? The veterinarians at Bozeman Animal Clinic believe early detection of diagnosis is key to optimal wellness. This is exceptionally true when it comes to senior health care. In order to provide optimal care for your senior pets, we recommend that “wellness visits” become more frequent, seeing your pet at least twice a year (every 6 months) for senior care. The doctors at Bozeman Animal Clinic may recommend blood work which includes a complete blood count (CBC), complete body chemistries which focus on organ function, thyroid function, and urinalysis. Together, we can help your senior pet live a longer, healthier life.
Heartworm disease is a potentially fatal disease which is transmitted by mosquitoes. Heartworm disease can also be completely preventable. The veterinarians at Bozeman Animal Clinic recommend dogs in this area receive year around heartworm preventative. Administration is easier than ever with once-a-month chewable tablets. The heartworm prevention recommended by the doctors at Bozeman Animal Clinic is also effective in treating intestinal parasites. Cats should also be treated for parasites on a regular basis.
Bozeman Animal Clinic can provide your pet with a safe, simple and permanent form of identification. The microchip is a device, about the size of a grain of rice, which can be implanted between the shoulder blades of your pet. This microchip device contains a unique ID code which is able to be read by a scanner. Once your pet is microchipped, their unique identification code will be registered with a national recovery database, which is available by phone 24 hours a day and 7 days a week. Most veterinary hospitals, shelters, humane organizations and veterinary emergency clinics have scanners to help reunite a lost pet, that has been microchipped, with their owner.

We also utilize reference laboratories to provide specialized laboratory results.
The veterinarians at Bozeman Animal Clinic understand that certain physical problems with pets stem from the types of food they eat. In order to increase energy and vitality and improve your pet’s quality of life, we can offer the following nutrition counseling:
Dr. Bozeman stresses the human-animal companion bond by volunteering at the South Plains Obedience Training Club. The bond that exists between owners and their pets is a strong one and, like any relationship, takes time to understand. At the time of your initial consultation, your pet's behavioral history will be discussed in detail, your pet's behavior will be observed, and an appropriate diagnostic and treatment plan will be designed. The plan will be customized so that it may be easily incorporated into your routine. Treatment plans for behavior cases generally include the application of management strategies as well as behavior modification techniques. For some pets, medication may be advised and prescribed. Regular communication promotes effective progress and allows Dr. Bozeman to determine when you and your pet are ready for your first follow-up visit.
