Hayden Pet Medical Center in Hayden, ID with 4 Vets: AAHA-accredited, Board Certified doctors & hospital provide the finest care for your pet.

"Our mission and our promise is to provide the best possible and most compassionate medical care for your pet."

Our practice was purchased by Dr. Kendall Bodkin and his wife, Donna in 1990. Over the years, we have expanded and enhanced our services in many areas which include an ICU/recovery area, an isolation ward and in-house laboratory. We offer up to date, state of the art medical services, as well as full service grooming and pet boarding.

Our medical staff is loving, compassionate and highly trained.

Our primary concern is to treat each pet as if it were our own and to provide the best medical care possible.

Surgery: Here at Hayden Pet Medical Center we offer routine, corrective, elective and emergency surgical procedures. These procedures include, but are not limited to; spays, neuters, cesareans, entropions, ear ablations, tumor removals, gastrointestinal surgeries, fractured bone repair, endoscopy, ear cropping and feline declaws.

Each pet receives a pre-anesthesia exam by our doctors. During this examination the medical team records each pet's vital signs, our doctors check for any medical abnormalities and identify any additional concerns prior to surgery.

Each pet is monitored visibly and with monitoring equipment. The exact anesthesia selected for use during surgery is determined by the doctor based on blood work, age, physical condition of the pet and type of surgery.

As a pet owner you need to know that there is risk involved with anesthesia just like there is with humans. In order to conduct an anesthesia-assisted procedure in the safest way possible, our doctors strongly recommend preoperative blood work. This testing will provide vital information to the doctors regarding enzyme and chemical balances and the condition of internal organs that will be effected by the anesthesia.

Pets are monitored during recovery and most surgery patients are kept overnight for their well being.

Radiology: We are one of the elite veterinary hospitals in the area with the ability to aquire digital radigraphs. Our digital radiology machine is one of the most advanced in the industry. We can perform most radiology studies short of MRIs.

Ultrasound: Diagnostic ultrasound is performed by our doctors with a state of the art computerized ultrasound machine. Diagnosies and biopsies are obtained without invasive surgery.

Endoscopy: Fiberoptic endoscopy is available to diagnose respiratory and gastrointestinal problems as well as take biopsies. We are also able to remove some foreign bodies without the need for more invasive surgery.

Laboratory: We perform pre-operative as well as comprehensive blood tests on site which means we are able to have results before your appointment is over. Tests such as blood glucose, urine analysis, fecal analysis, and heart worm are all done within minutes.

We also have in-house tests for feline leukemia and feline immune virus as well as parvovirus screening.

We work with a local laboratory for more extensive diagnostic panels with about a 4 hour turn around for most tests.

Pharmacy: We have a full stock of the most commonly used as well as the new innovative drugs and are able to fill your prescriptions before you leave your appointment. Our doctors are very up to date and well versed on all prescription protocols.

Dentistry: During your pets annual wellness visit our doctors check their mouth, teeth and gums.

They may recommend a dental procedure which includes an ultra sonic scaling, prophy polishing and complete charting. Oravet teeth sealants are also offered.

Extractions, root planing, and dental x-rays are available with client consent. Dental x-rays are provided by the latest Digital x-ray machine. It uses 1/10 the radiation of standard machines.

Avian/exotic medicine: Birds, reptiles, ferrets, rabbits, guinea pigs, hamsters, gerbils, rats, chinchillas and hedge hogs are all seen by our doctors.

We offer vaccines, diagnostics, environment and nutrition counseling. As well as nail, beak and teeth trimming according to specific species.

Allergy Testing: We have many clients each year who have become concerned over constant scratching, hot spots that appear for no apparent reason or reactions to foods.

Since no pet has an identical genetic makeup it is important to do proper diagnostic testing to determine if these symptoms may be caused by some type of allergy.

If a specific allergy is diagnosed by our veterinarians your pet can then be treated with special diet or allergy injections.

Specialized Diets: We offer a wide variety of diets specifically designed for pets with special medical conditions. These diets are formulated by Hill's Science Diet, Purina and Innovative Veterinary Diet (IVD).

If your veterinarian prescribes one of these diets it's to enhance the medical treatment that is required for your pet's medical need.

Pet Identification: Because your pet is such an important member of your family, we offer microchipping and tattooing as permanent forms of identifying your pet.

Microchipping can be done at anytime, it involves implanting a microchip small enough to go through a hypodermic needle.

It is implanted under the skin, usually in the scruff area, and is read by a scanner.

The number on the chip is unique to your pet and registered nation wide.

A toll free number is called and the owner information you provide is given to the person or facility that has your pet so you can be reunited.

Tattooing is done under anesthesia and is a way of marking your pet with a name or number for identification.

We also offer pet ID cards. They are the size to fit in your pocket or wallet, it contains a photo of your pet as well as vaccine, health, pet and owner information.

The vaccine information is a valid vaccine certificate, so they are perfect for the pet who travels.

Euthanasia & Cremation: We may all, at some point, have to face that "hardest of all decisions" with our pets - euthanasia.

Euthanasia is a peaceful ending of life. We welcome owners who choose to stay with their pets during the procedure, but also understand when owners prefer not to.

We will prepare your pet for an at home burial if you choose or we offer two cremation options. Mass cremation is done with other pets and no ashes are returned. With private cremation your pet is cremated by itself and we return the ashes to you as a cherished memory of your pet.

When the time comes, we will be glad to assist with the necessary arrangements.
