Wellness & Vaccinations

Annual checkups aren’t just important for humans. In fact, given the shorter life spans of our animal friends, routine wellness checks are essential for keeping them happy and healthy. When our doctors are able to examine your pet on a regular basis, measures can be taken to prevent illness from occurring. Furthermore, routine visits allow us to detect the signs of medical problems early so they can be treated quickly and effectively. Not only can these things help your pet live a longer life, but the quality of that extra time will also be enhanced. You want to keep your loved one around for as many years as possible. The wellness services at Effingham Animal Hospital can help you achieve that goal.


Your pet’s external health is just as important as his or her internal wellbeing. Dermatological conditions can cause everything from itching and minor discomfort to severe pain. At Effingham Animal Hospital, we want to return your companion to total health – inside and out. Our professional dermatology services are designed to help us get to the bottom of various skin problems and develop the most effective treatment plan. Whether it’s topical cream to treat a rash or more advanced care to manage a hormonal condition, we’re up to the task. Don’t let your loved one suffer another moment – give us a call today!


Suspecting a pet is sick or injured but not knowing what’s wrong can be frustrating. If only they could speak to tell us what was bothering them. Veterinary diagnostics allow us to give a voice to our animal friends and better manage their ongoing health. At Effingham Animal Hospital, we rely on a number of tools and technologies to examine our patients more thoroughly. This includes laboratory testing as well as advanced imaging, like x-ray and ultrasound. When we can learn what’s happening inside your pet’s body, we can diagnose and treat the problem in a timely and effective manner. If you suspect that your companion isn’t feeling well, we’ll get the answers we need to get them back on the path to good health again.


Did you know that healthy teeth can actually extend and improve the quality of your pet’s life? Without regular dental care, your pet’s mouth can become home to dangerous bacteria which can eventually lead to a number of serious medical conditions. That’s why preventative care is so important. Effingham Animal Hospital offers professional pet dentistry services, from routine care to the treatment of advanced oral health problems. We will also educate you on proper home dental care techniques that you can employ to help your loved one maintain healthy teeth and gums. Pets can’t take care of their own oral health, so it’s up to us to manage this important task on their behalf. Let’s work together to keep your pet’s smile clean and strong!


At Effingham Animal Hospital, we are proud of our exceptional surgical care. We understand that as a loving pet parent, bringing your companion in for an operation can be nerve wracking. That’s why we’ve gone above and beyond to improve the experience for both our patients and their owners. Our doctors are experienced at performing both routine and complex procedures. We use modern techniques and always adhere to the strictest protocols. Most importantly, the safety and comfort of our patients tops our list of priorities. You can feel confident entrusting us with all of your best friend’s surgical care needs.
