Due to Covid-19 and national AVMA and local guidelines, our lobby is currently closed to clients. The health and safety of our staff and clients is of the utmost importance. Caring for our patients during this time is also important and we are still committed to excellent veterinary care. We are open and taking appointments Monday through Saturday. We are picking up patients curbside and delivering medication to cars as our lobby is closed. The veterinary industry as a whole, is very busy right now, physical appointments and surgeries are being scheduled days and weeks out. We appreciate your understanding and patience during this difficult time.  


Here at Farview Veterinary Hospital in Independence, MO, we offer a full selection of veterinary services at our practice. We can take care of your pet's vaccinations, exams, spay or neuter surgeries, and much more. Our veterinary staff is highly trained and has a great deal of experience in working with cats, dogs, and pets of other species. Read on to learn more about our veterinary services. 

Vaccinations

Pets need to be vaccinated regularly to protect them against various diseases, just as humans must get regular vaccinations. The vaccination schedule for pets is similar in that puppies and kittens have to get many vaccinations over a number of different visits. Once your dog or cat reaches adulthood, he will not need quite as many vaccinations. Of course, he will still need to be vaccinated on a regular basis for his own health and safety. 

Exams

We recommend that dogs, cats, and pets from other species have regular yearly exams. Again, this is an aspect of veterinary care that is similar to human healthcare. We often take care of your pet's vaccination needs at his yearly exams. We will also test for common diseases like heartworm. Our exams include a dental inspection, as many cats and dogs have tartar built up on their teeth that needs to be addressed.

Spay & Neuter Surgeries

We also perform surgical procedures at our veterinary practice. Spay and neuter procedures are the most common type of surgery that we do. If you have a puppy or kitten that has not yet been fixed, bring them in and we will take care of the procedure with as little discomfort to your pet as possible.
