WE OFFER A VARIETY OF SERVICES:
At Plateau Animal Hospital we firmly believe in preventative care for your pet. This includes annual wellness visits, dental care, proper life stage nutrition and vaccinations.
We perform all routine surgeries for your pet and offer a wide range of non-routine surgeries when needed. We also offer cyrosurgery and electrosurgery for small mass removals. We can refer you and your pet to an appropriate specialist if needed.
Most dogs and cats eventually need a professional dental cleaning using an ultrasonic scaler such as your dentist might use. We also hand scale the teeth under the gum line where tartar often accumulates, then polish the teeth to reduce the recurrence of tartar buildup. We also perform dental extractions when necessary. Dental procedures are preformed using the same inhalation anesthetic and careful monitoring techniques that we use for our surgical patients. Many pets have their teeth cleaned on an annual basis to help ensure optimal oral health.
At some point in your pet’s life, we may need an X-ray and/or ultrasound as part of a diagnostic work-up. We are equipped with radiographic and ultrasound capability.
We want our pets to remain healthy and happy for as long as possible, and this can be achieved through exercise, a healthy diet and regular veterinary checkups. Aging changes such as arthritis, vision and hearing losses are normal and cannot be prevented. Many changes related to disease however, can be managed and treated successfully if detected early. We offer annual blood work screens to aid with detection of diabetes, liver, kidney disease and anemia.
We offer boarding for cats and dogs. Because we don’t board a large number of pets our space does fill fast, especially prime holiday weeks. We suggest that you make your reservations well in advance. Please contact us for more information on rates and availability.
Dr. Lisa Jividen is available for emergency situations for current clients. Please call our clinic at (931) 484-8060 for instructions on contacting our veterinarian.

We are pleased to announce that we have a board-certified ophthalmologist at Plateau Animal Hospital.
Dr. Dan Brogdon will be conducting monthly eye clinics. Please feel free to refer you eye patients to him for the diagnosis and medical treatment of ocular disease as an extension of the rDVM care. It is very important to Dr. Brogdon that the rDVM is kept in the loop, and he will communicate well with you to provide the best ongoing care for your patients.
He will also provide some minor surgical procedures (Alger brush for refractory corneal ulcers, cryotherapy for eyelid tumors, minor ocular centesis for glaucoma).
