WELCOME TO SOUTHSIDE VETERINARY CLINIC...FORMERLY HUTTON VETERINARY CLINIC
Getting a new puppy or kitten is always exciting! We are honored to help you care for your new pet. We recommend your pet's first visit be around 6 to 8 weeks of age. The earlier you start bringing your puppy or kitten, the better we can examine and prevent any health concerns. Your pet will receive a Complimentary Preventative Care Examination at each visit, intestinal parasite control, vaccinations tailored to your pet's lifestyle, flea/tick and heartworm prevention consultation, and behavioral and nutritional consultations.
Wellness Examinations for every stage of life is important! The frequency of recommended wellness examinations is typically once a year for most pets, and every six months for senior pets and pets with chronic health issues. A Wellness Examination is an overall general health assessment when your pet is healthy. Diagnostic procedures and treatment options may be recommended. We are proud to offer Complimentary Preventative Care Exams when performed with annual core vaccinations.
A thorough physical exam is extremely important when your pet is sick, injured, or when you have other concerns that need to be addressed. Diagnostic testing may be recommended and most of the testing can be performed in our on-site laboratory. In most cases, treatments can be managed within our clinic and all available options will be discussed. For after-hour emergencies, we recommend that our patients seek emergency care at our local Veterinary Emergency and Specialty Hospital. 316-262-5321

Spaying and Neutering your pets help them live longer healthier lives, and it also plays an important role in reducing the number of unwanted pets. Price estimates are made on a case by case basis including the weight and age of your pet, and if any additional procedures need to be performed. (ie: vaccinations, pre-anesthetic blood work, etc.)
The procedure to clean your pet’s teeth is similar to what your dentist would perform, except our patients are placed under general anesthesia. Once anesthetized, we remove the calculus on all surfaces of the teeth and under the gum line with an ultrasonic scaling machine. The teeth are then polished smooth with a fluoride paste. Any loose or abscessed teeth will be extracted as needed.
Diagnostic testing is important for both preventative care and when treating illnesses or injuries.
Most testing can be performed in our on-site Veterinary Laboratory unless more specialized testing is needed.
A few of the Diagnostic tests that we offer include:
- Fecal Parasite Check
