We invite you to join the Ash Creek Animal Clinic family. We serve Independence, Oregon, the surrounding communities, and visitors to this beautiful area of the Willamette Valley. Your pet’s health and well-being are very important to us, and we will do everything we can to provide the best possible care.
Ash Creek Animal Clinic is a full-service hospital for companion animals, providing a wide range of medical, surgical, and dental care. We strive to make our clinic comfortable, family-friendly, and relaxed, so your pet can have as stress-free a visit as possible. We encourage “meet the clinic” visits for dogs—stop by for a treat and kind word. This helps reduce anxiety when the time comes for a real doctor’s visit.
We understand the special role your pet plays in your family and are dedicated to becoming your partner in your pet's health care. We treat your pet as we would our own. Our goal is to practice the highest quality medicine and surgery with compassion and an emphasis on client education.
With the summer months upon us and the temperatures rising, be aware of the signs of heatstroke and how to minimize your pet's risk. Signs of heatstroke include: Panting, staring, anxious expressions, refusal to obey commands, warm & dry skin, high fever, rapid heartbeat, vomiting, and collapse. You can minimize your pet's risk by providing a cool, shady place with plenty of cold, fresh water. Be aware of your pet's exercise limitations. Don't exercise them during the heat of the day. Never leave your pet's unattended in a vehicle. Take extra precautions with senior pets and those with shorter noses.
