Dental health has become well recognized as an important component of your pet’s overall health. Dental disease in pets has been linked to chronic pain as well as heart, liver and kidney disease. When your pet is in for a medical or wellness appointment, one of our veterinarians will examine their teeth and look for […]

Similar to people, good nutrition for our pets can make a huge difference in how they feel, their activity level and their overall wellness. At Arrowhead Veterinary Centre, our veterinarians, animal health technologists and support staff are all well trained and knowledgeable about different aspects of animal nutrition. We regularly attend continuing education courses on […]

At Arrowhead Veterinary Centre, we offer therapeutic laser as a potential treatment for various painful conditions. Therapeutic lasers are also called “cold” lasers. Laser light at a specific wavelength is delivered to tissues to increase circulation, simulate the immune system and increase collagen and muscle tissue development. Therapeutic lasers have been identified to reduce pain and inflammation of tissues and encourage healing.

Arrowhead Veterinary Center has many in-house diagnostics available to allow for quick turnaround of testing. This helps us diagnose and treat your pet in the fastest and most efficient manner possible.

Our veterinarians are dedicated to providing our clients and their pets with the safest and most effective anesthesia and surgery. Many of our clients have some anxiety when their pet needs surgery. We tailor our anesthesia and surgery to each individual patient and stay current on the therapies and medications useful for each procedure.

The toughest decision we will ever make for our pets is deciding about euthanasia. Euthanasia is inducing death in an animal to relieve pain and suffering. Some of these animals will be quite elderly while unfortunately others are younger.

What our clients say

Arrowhead Vet is the best in Cochrane. I’ve been going with my little Morkie for the past 3 years and my new little addition-(a Yorkie)-has started to visit this friendly and knowledgeable facility as well. I highly recommend Arrowhead Vet!!

Thanks to Dr. Charlene and Arrowhead #dukethebostonterrier will recover from three hours of dental surgery with none of the pain he’s been dealing with since he was a puppy ( puppy mill rescue we think is about 7 ). They will also take care of #dixiethebostonterrier with preventative dental work so she grows up into an even happier adult dog. They take care of all of our four legged kids. 4 dogs and 3 cats.

Arrowhead exceeded my expectations. The Vet was very knowledgeable and the staff were very supportive and attentive.

Arrowhead makes my family feel like their family. They are honest and take extra care with my poodle. A few years ago we nearly lost Loki at the young age of 1 year because he had ingested 4 socks while in another persons care. We knew he had a “passion” for socks and had warned his puppy sitter who was adamant that he had no had access to her footwear. Libby and her team took a look at an X-ray and said “he’s eaten something and it’s blocking his gut even though we can’t see it”. They told me to get him down to the Pet Care centre in Calgary right away as he would need an emergency surgery.

The Care Centre confirmed the diagnosis and did the life saving surgery overnight on a Good Friday. It look Loki about 8 weeks to recover and regain motility in his intestinal track. During the entire time Arrowhead was there for us and with us during the ordeal. We visited at least once a week as he struggled through with ups and downs. Loki lost about 15 pounds off his 70 lb frame. He was just skin and bones but he made it. This year Loki is a happy 3 1/2 year old and had a great annual check up where Libby reported him as being healthy happy and a great weight…. but still has a nose for socks… which are locked down like gold in our household…

I can’t thank Libby and her team enough for what they did.
