We provide House Calls! Small animals are a welcomed part of the practice. Wellness exams for your dog or cat can be offered within the comfort of your home. If your pet does not like to travel in the car or becomes nervous in the vet clinic setting; let us bring the clinic to you! Unfortunately, we do not offer surgeries for your dog or cat, but we will assist you with choosing an appropriate referral center or vet hospital for your pet’s surgery.
At Clara A. Mason, D.V.M in Serving West Virginia , we are proud to be on the cutting edge of medical technology. Radiology is a technique and diagnostic tool that we use to look inside the body in an entirely non-invasive way. X-rays allow us to create images of all the body’s organs.
In other words, the use of radiology gives us a view of the internal organs in your pets’ body that we otherwise could not see. It is a valuable diagnostic tool that helps veterinarians detect and prevent illness.
We offer all types of assistance with reproduction and breeding, from semen collection to vaginal cytology so you know when the best breeding day will be. We offer artificial insemination (AI) as well as assistance with natural breeding.
We can check for pregnancy with ultrasound and are able to determine the number of puppies fairly accurately on late term radiographs (safe for mom and the pups!) so you know exactly what to expect. We are of course ready to help if you have questions about any part of whelping, and will be close by in case of emergency. We are here to help you succeed.
Hospice and Euthanasia
Sadly, there comes the time when we have to say goodbye to our beloved pets. Recognizing that this is a very personal and emotional event for your family, we offer in-home euthanasia for your pet. Our goal is to make this event as peaceful and respectful for your family and especially your cherished pet. We do not want your pet to experience any discomfort during this time. We will adequately sedate your pet first to ensure that your pet is not upset nor experiencing any pain or discomfort from his or her health issues. Once we determine that your precious pet is comfortable we will continue with the FDA approved injectable euthanasia solution. We will attempt to accommodate your schedule and needs as much as possible. Please call us if you would like to arrange for this service. (304) 340-1401
We recommend that burial or cremation plans are arranged prior to our arrival so that your time is focused with your pet. Please ask us if you need assistance with grief counseling.
Ultrasounding is a quick and painless procedure. It uses sound waves to allow us to see inside your pets, without using the harmful radiation produced when we take x-rays.
We are pleased to be able to offer ultrasounds, along with all of our other diagnostic tools, to help your sick pets start to feel better soon. The quicker we can find the problem, the sooner your pets will be back to their normal selves.
