For pet owners who experience a critical or acute issue during our regular operational hours, we can provide rapid triage assessment and provide you with the next steps needed to give your pet their best chance at a speedy recovery.

Regular wellness visits for your pet, regardless of their age or medical condition, is a crucial piece of the puzzle when it comes to optimizing overall health.

Visiting us regularly allows for the early detection of many potential health issues, including but not limited to, heart disease, diabetes, internal and external parasites, arthritis, cataracts and more.

We recommend yearly pet exams. We’re also available on an as-needed basis in between your pet’s routine wellness examination. Keeping your pet happy and healthy, while charting the course for optimal health in the future takes planning, diligence, and visiting us on a routine basis!

At Morgantown Veterinary Care, we’re proud to offer surgical care as one of our many specialties. Dr. Taylor considers surgical procedures to be one of his specialties and has provided countless routine and specialty procedures to local pets. Our advanced diagnostics and state-of-the-art technology allows us to perform procedures which are as safe and seamless as possible. We’ll always work to ensure your pet has the quickest recovery time possible and that any questions you may have are answered before any surgical procedures begin.

Receiving the right vaccinations for your pet can prevent serious illness and contribute to a comprehensive, long-term plan for optimal health. We always tailor our approach to vaccinations to your pet’s most current needs, considering their health history, seasonality, local environment and many more factors before recommending any one vaccination.

We also keep up-to-date with all vaccination protocols and are able to recommend and administer our vaccinations on-site for the convenience of both you and your pet.

We offer anesthesia for a wide-range of circumstances, including surgical procedures and on an as-needed basis when providing care. Anesthesia is a safe way to ensure the cooperation of your pet during a number of routine and more complicated procedures and can be the safest way to implement care without upsetting or agitating your pet.

Anesthesia is always administered with a veterinarian and experienced surgical assistant on-site and will only be given if we think that this is a helpful course of action for the specific procedure at hand.

Behavioral issues can hinder the quality of life experienced by both you and your pet if left untreated. These issues can commonly include human-directed aggression, aggression toward other pets, persisting separation anxiety, as well as additional phobias and compulsive behaviors. We’re well trained in a number of treatments and therapeutic techniques that are proven to enhance your pet’s ability to cope with these issues, while providing an opportunity to improve quality of life and relationships that can make your pet’s life richer and more fulfilling.

Blood transfusions, in select circumstances, can extend the life of your pet significantly and can be used to treat anemia from trauma, disease, surgery or other issues.

Morgantown Veterinary Care is equipped to provide blood transfusions to pets in need, which can help to enhance recovery and ensure that your pet makes a return to full health.

We strongly recommend that pets have their teeth cleaned regularly. We also provide a variety of  pet dental products you can use at home such as toothbrushes, pet friendly toothpaste and dental chews. At home veterinary dental care techniques can be highly effective at preventing more complicated issues.

Be sure to ask about our veterinary dental care services during your next visit and enjoy your pet’s healthy smile long after they leave our veterinary practice!

We’re proud to offer a wide-range of medications to help ensure the recovery and optimal health of your pet. Whether it’s a regular medication or a special circumstance, we will work to recommend the medication that suits your pet’s individual needs and fill your prescription in a timely way.

We’ll be sure to review your pet’s medical history and ask you any questions we may have before recommending any medication. Our veterinarians are ready and equipped to fill your prescriptions with compassionate and personalized care that’s tailored to your pet’s specific needs.

We are also happy to provide a full, in-house diagnostic laboratory at our veterinary practice. This allows us to run comprehensive tests and analysis on-site, which leads to generally shorter turnaround times.

Access to instant lab-work results is a crucial part of providing medical care to pets. Our in-house diagnostic laboratory is part of our commitment toward cutting-edge, comprehensive veterinary care.

While hospice and euthanasia are the most difficult topics to discuss when it comes to pet care, providing the right end-of-life care is an important part of being a responsible pet owner.

If your pet is nearing the end of their life or requires immediate care, we welcome you to contact us at (304) 599–3111 to ask us any questions you may have and receive our recommendations and assistance.

Laser Therapy is an incredibly innovative technology which can dramatically assist with inflammation, tissue repair, chronic pain, and cell growth.

This is an advanced solution which can reduce recovery time for your pet, help with common issues like arthritis, and generally ensure that your pet thrives by living their best life possible with maximum comfort.

The unfortunate reality is that many pets go missing each year. We encourage you to consider our microchipping service, which allows you to fit your pet with a painless, microchip. This microchip allows you to register your pet into a national database, which can help to track your pet in case they are lost or stolen. This procedure and service can significantly increase the odds of you successfully reuniting with your lost pet if this scenario occurs.

Experiencing chronic pain as a result of an injury, arthritis or aging, can be the source of ongoing discomfort for your pet. This can reduce their overall quality of life and hinder what they’re capable of doing each day.

Morgantown Veterinary Care is sure to personalize our approach to pain management treatment, to ensure that your pet has everything they need to get moving again. If you notice that your pet has a limp or is simply showing signs of pain during normal activity, give us a call so that we can help alleviate the source of the pain and implement ongoing solutions to provide optimal pain management to your pet.

Nutrition is a crucial piece of the puzzle when it comes to maintaining optimal overall health. A proper diet, exercise and eating the right food on a regular basis can ensure healthy growth and development, resulting in the best overall health for your cherished pet. Be sure to ask about our nutritional counseling services, especially if your pet has any specific dietary needs or nutritional concerns.

Parasites are always uninvited, as they can harm the overall health of your pet and create a wide array of health issues. We can check for fleas, worms and other parasites, providing both preventative and ongoing treatment solutions to improve the life and comfort of your pet.

Make sure that your puppy or kitten grows up strong and healthy by bringing them in for regular wellness checkups! This is a great opportunity to check for any irregularities that they may have and to ensure that you’re setting the course for them to achieve the best possible health in the future.

Of course, we love dogs and cats, but we understand that your pet might be an exotic or pocket pet too! We love to see all types of animals and are proud to provide care for reptiles, rabbits, small mammals and other pets as well. If you have a question or wish to know if our veterinary practice will be a good fit for care, simply give us a call.

Yes, we love reptiles too! We encourage calling ahead to confirm, but we’re happy to see exotics, including reptiles like snakes, turtles, iguanas or others. We welcome you to contact Morgantown Veterinary Center with any questions you may have and can’t wait to meet you and your pet reptile soon!

Significant advances in radiology allow us to use X-rays as an important diagnostic tool. When we need to receive more data than can be obtained from a routine physical examination or blood tests, our cutting-edge radiology services allow us to receive deep diagnostic data on the overall health of your pet. This can help us to make the right recommendations and ensure a speedy recovery for your pet.

Just like humans, pets age and often require additional care as they do. At Morgantown Veterinary Care, we’re proud to provide senior pet care to your pet as they continue to progress through their life stages.

Recent advancements in veterinary medicine and technology allow older pets to live longer, healthier lives than ever before. Contact us today to learn more about providing senior care to your pet to ensure their health and happiness while they age.
