Family is a term in flux. For some, the word alludes to close relatives, and for others family is a way to describe kindred spirits. For many of us, family has grown to include the furry friends with which we share our homes and hearts. At Family Animal Medicine in Owasso, Drs. Jenny Nobles and Gena Guerriero, along with their fantastic staff, are committed to providing the community’s animals with quality medical services in a family-oriented environment.
As Family Animal Medicine approaches its two-year anniversary, Dr. Nobles and Dr. Guerriero pride themselves on the relaxed environment and the dedication of their team. "Many of our staff members have been working together for over 10 years," Dr. Guerriero explains. "Nearly the entire team worked together at another animal hospital in Owasso, and as our visions changed, we found a new home for our work family. Since then, we have been Family Animal Medicine.”
As in any family, the clinic has its share of young blood and older members. In honor of its most senior member, Wanda Cline, Family Animal Medicine is offering a Senior Animal Special for the month of November. “Aging is difficult on all creatures, and sometimes we tend to overlook the aging process," Dr. Guerriero says. "It is so important that we check seniors' bloodwork and consider preventative measures to insure the health and comfort of our geriatric family members. Wanda is a great example of a woman who understands the benefits of preventative care. She is in her mid-70s and is loving and fully living life.”
All pets over the age of seven are considered senior, and they may be suffering from arthritis, hypothyroidism, or liver and kidney issues. A physical exam and routine bloodwork can help rule out or diagnose these issues. “If clients have any questions, we strongly encourage them to call. Please talk to a doctor or a staff member; veterinary services don’t have to be frightening,” Dr. Nobles encourages.
Family Animal Medicine is a full service facility. They offer affordable, high quality care within the confines of a family-oriented practice. As a hometown veterinary hospital, clients can expect state-of-the-art surgeries, separate cat and dog boarding with kennels and runs, X-rays, dental cleanings, and a master groomer, Micki DeYong. Family Animal Medicine also provides full staff bios on their website and specials on their Facebook page, FAMOwasso.
