FAQs

Thank you for taking interest in K. Vet Animal Care in Greensburg! Below you will find a list of the most frequently asked questions of our animal hospital. If you have additional questions, please contact us at 724-216-5174. We’re happy to help!

Do you see exotic pets?

No, we unfortunately are no longer seeing new exotics at this time. We no longer have an exotic veterinarian on staff. This includes small mammals, reptiles, and avian patients.

Do you accept pet insurance?

Yes. Pet insurance is different than our own, however. Most companies ask that you pay for your visit and they will reimburse you directly.

Do you spay/neuter? Dental?

Yes, we do many surgeries here at K. Vet Animal Care. If you are interested in a surgery or dental for your pet, we will first need to establish your pet with a wellness appointment, if you are not already a current client. Once your pet is established with us, we will send you an estimate for the procedure which must be approved, then we will move forward with scheduling mandatory pre-op bloodwork (if not already done so). The surgery must be scheduled within 30 days of their pre-op bloodwork to ensure they are healthy enough for general anesthesia. We will also schedule your post-op appointment with a technician or doctor 2 weeks after the surgery. The pre-op and post-op appointments are complementary.

I found a tick on my pet, what do I do?

First, remove the tick if it has been attached to your pet’s skin. If you cannot, call in and we can schedule your pet with a technician to remove it.

Please monitor for any clinical signs of tick-borne diseases such as limping, soreness, lethargy, pain, inappetence, and fever. If seeing these signs, please schedule an appointment with your veterinarian.

If the tick was fully engorged, please call your veterinarian and schedule an appointment in 6 weeks to test for tick-borne diseases. These diseases do not show up in testing in their early stages.
