We will also provide you with detailed instructions on the medication's use, discuss any side effects or interactions and even administer the first dose for you if possible.

You can feel confident all the medications we dispense were obtained from safe, reliable sources and have been stored under the right conditions.

At our veterinary pharmacies, we maintain a comprehensive inventory of pharmaceuticals, vitamins, shampoos, flea and tick control products and heartworm preventatives to meet the needs of you and your pet. We also carry prescription pet food.

Refills are easy, too – simply give us a call or submit an online request.

Pet IDMicrochipping

A lost pet is a pet owner's worst nightmare. The situation is frightening and often comes with devastating consequences. Of the 10 million pets who go missing each year, studies have shown that 90% of those found would not have been returned to their owners without some form of permanent pet identification.

This is why the teams at Stiern and Southwest Veterinary Hospitals consider microchip pet IDs a fundamental way to protect your pet and an important part of responsible pet ownership. No larger than a grain of rice, this safe, reliable, and permanent pet identification takes less than 10 seconds to implant and can save you and your pet days, weeks, or more of fear and anguish.

A microchip registers your pet with a unique identification number, which is filed in a database with your contact information. You can update your contact information any time online or with a quick phone call, and it is important to remember to do so whenever your information changes. If your pet is lost, the microchip can be scanned by animal control officers, at shelters, and at veterinary hospitals in the U.S. and in many foreign countries.

Microchip pet IDs can be implanted at any time, but doing so while your pet is already anesthetized for a dental or surgical procedure makes it convenient and totally pain free.

If you would like your pet to be microchipped during a scheduled surgery or procedure where anesthesia is required, please download, fill out and bring our Authorization for Professional Services form with you on the morning of your scheduled appointment. We can also provide you with a copy of the form to fill out when you drop off your pet.

Behavioral Counseling

Behavioral issues are a common reason for pet owners to abandon or surrender a pet to a shelter. Most often, these issues can be addressed and corrected or modified. With the high number of pets in shelters, those with behavioral issues are much less likely to find new homes than pets who have been well socialized and trained.

Even with the right training and lots of attention and love, your dog or cat can develop bad habits or unwanted behaviors. Please don't make the mistake of believing you and your family must live with these problems or worse, consider giving up your pet.

At Stiern and Southwest Veterinary Hospitals, we offer basic behavior counseling and can refer clients to a qualified trainer or veterinary behavior specialist for more difficult cases.

EuthanasiaEnd-of-Life Services

The death of a beloved animal companion often leaves pet parents feeling a need to be close to their pet. Cremation for your dog, cat, or other animal friend serves as a means of preserving his or her memory. At Stiern and Southwest Veterinary Hospitals, we work closely with Eden Memorial Pet Care to provide our clients with cremation options.

Stiern and Southwest Veterinary Hospitals are also proud supporters of the Kansas State University Pet Tribute Fund, which honors the memory of contributors' pets while supporting the university's College of Veterinary Medicine.
