Because we work as a team with you to ensure your pets get healthy and stay healthy,
the doctors and technicians stay in close contact with families during a pet's illness.
We call frequently to make sure we answer any questions you may have and return
calls the same day should we not be able to immediately speak with you. We always
welcome your questions because we know that your involvement in maintaining your
pet's health is vital! We work together to ensure your dog or cat is happy and healthy.
We are here for you both!
We open at 7:30am to help those families who need appointments before regular work
hours begin. We also stay open until 5:30pm for those families who need to come
after regular work hours. We are also open 8am - Noon on Saturday and have
no restrictions on who can visit us on Saturday.
Dental Care and Cleaning
Good oral health is vital to maintaining overall health. We can gladly share with
you ways to keep your pet's mouth clean and happy. In the event your pet does need
a dental cleaning.
We gladly offer Puppy and Kitten plans to ensure your new friend gets off to the
best health start possible. Our plans include all core vaccines, fecal analysis,
heartworm prevention (for puppies), FELV/FIV test (for kittens) microchipping and
a $50.00 discount on his/her neuter/spay.
General and Specialty Surgery
Dr. Schmidt has a special interest in surgery and excels in spays, neuter, lump
removals, intestinal foreign body removals. We are fortunate in that we have a great
relationship with a Board Certified Veterinary Surgeon who can come to our hospital
to perform specialty level surgeries.
LifeCare Animal Hospital is also proud to offer the services of Dr. Victoria Lukasik,
DACVA, to provide specialty level anesthesia for patients with complicating health
Drs. Glenn and Schmidt are experienced in managing patients with diabetes, Valley
Fever, adrenal diseases and other serious internal medicine conditions. Because
providing the best care possible is a team effort between families and the veterinary
health care team, we stay in close contact with families to ensure that treatments
are going as expected. We dedicate time to meet with you to answer all of the questions
you have. We set up times to meet with families to demonstrate and teach how to
properly and safely do appropriate home-treatments. We also have a close working
relationship with an Internal Medicine Specialist in Gilbert should a patient's
care require that level of treatment.
Full In-House Laboratory
Because we want your pet feeling great as soon as possible, we have a full in-house
laboratory that is able to provide results for red blood cell levels, white blood
cell levels, kidney function, liver enzymes, pancreatic enzymes and electrolytes.
By having these results quickly available, we can start appropriate and tailored
treatment for your pet that same day!
We are able to do in-house radiographs (x-rays) for your pets and provide to you
same day copies of those radiographs on your own CD. We also have the option for
a Board Certified Radiologist to review your pets radiographs and provide a detailed
report for your pet.
While we want all pets to remain safe and healthy, occasionally the need for emergency
care arises. Dr. Glenn has a special interest in emergency medicine and critical
care. LifeCare Animal Hospital is equipped to deal with daytime emergency situations
such as poisonings, trouble breathing, bleeding and trauma.
Because we want our patients to be able to get the help they need in emergency situations,
we work with CareCredit to allow our clients who need it to make payments for their
pets' care. We offer a program through CareCredit where families can make interest-free
payments for six months!
