- Dr. Daschelle Roice, our practice owner, has been board certified as a specialist in Canine and Feline practice by the American Board of Veterinary Practitioners. Her expertise and dedication to excellence is expressed throughout the hospital, and in our commitment to state of the art full service animal hospital medical care and outstanding client experience.
- We are accredited by the American Animal Hospitals Association, a status that only 1500 hospitals in the United States and Canada (about 15%) have achieved. We have voluntarily agreed to uphold over 900 standards of practice and are inspected every two years by AAHA to confirm that we meet those standards.
- We love cats at Tatum Point Animal Hospital! We have been certified as a Cat Friendly Practice by the American Association of Feline Practitioners. In achieving this we have shown that we are considerate of the specific needs of our feline patients, and have made adjustments and received training to make their visit to the vet as stress free as possible.
- We take anesthesia seriously. We believe that with good pre-anesthetic screening, individualized anesthetic drug plans, and proactive monitoring, anesthesia is a safe, and allows for procedures that improve your pet's quality of life. Many spay/neuter clinics and general practice veterinarians treat anesthesia as an assembly line. At Tatum Point, we not only develop individualized anesthetic protocols ensuring that each patient has the appropriate drug combination for their health status, we also designate a surgical nurse who follows each patient throughout their day at the hospital from admission to discharge, and helps to ensure that their experience is as stress-free as possible.
- We offer thorough, personalized, wellness care. Unlike vaccination clinics, where the veterinarian is only administering the vaccines you order, during your Wellness Exam we consider all aspects of your pet's health, including which vaccines your pet actually needs, their nutrition, preventative care, and answer any questions about your pet that you may have.
- Dr. Daschelle Roice's commitment to providing excellence in full service medical care for your pet has led her to acquire expertise and equipment which enables us to offer expanded services, such as ultrasound, and extensive in house laboratory testing, that are not available in many general practices. These enable you to receive advanced care for your pet in a place that you know, often without having to be referred elsewhere for specialty care.
- We are committed to you. We know that providing full service care for your pet can be stressful and expensive. We are committed to providing you not only the best medical care, but the best possible experience, and being certain that you understand your pet's condition. We strive to develop a treatment plan that you can complete, and to be sure that you always understand the cost and benefits of all of your options for your pet before you make a decision.
Good experience. Staff was very friendly. Vet took her time with my two dogs, very thorough. Several days later they called to check in, that was impressive. Good place to take your animals....Lisa B.
