Microchipping At Our Upper Valley Veterinary Hospital

Stoney Brook Veterinary Hospital

A lost pet is a frightening situation with often devastating consequences. Studies have shown more than 10 million pets get lost each year and approximately 90 percent of those found would not have been returned to their owners without some form of permanent lost pet identification.

This is why the team at Stoney Brook Veterinary Hospital considers microchip pet IDs a fundamental way to protect your pet and an important part of responsible pet ownership. We use the HomeAgain microchip system. Each microchip registers the animal with a unique identification number, which is filed in a database with your contact information. The contact information can be updated anytime, 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 as well.

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.

HomeAgain membership offers additional benefits such as proactive pet recovery and free access to ASPCA Poison Control. HomeAgain also comes with a number of very useful services to pet owners such as their National Pet Recovery Database, Lost Pet Specialists, Rapid Lost Pet Alerts, Lost Pet Medical Insurance, Travel Assistance for Found Pets, and more.

Invested in the Upper Valley Region

Stoney Brook Veterinary Hospital

Stoney Brook Veterinary Hospital takes an active role in the Upper Valley community. We believe all pets should have the best care possible. Our staff and veterinarians volunteer with many animal organizations, including the Upper Valley Humane Society, the Morris Animal Foundation, and other local rescue and foster groups. Client education and community outreach are integral to keeping pets safe and healthy.

Some of the community involvement services we include ourselves in are spring rabies clinics in two different towns as well as providing education on several regional animal diseases (e.g. Heartworm disease, Lyme disease, flea and tick prevention). We actively participate in local parades, fairs, and farmer market’s gatherings to keep a prominent presence throughout the Lebanon area. Furthermore, we attend and support most all Upper Valley Human Society sponsored events. To learn more about the upcoming events we will be attending, feel free to call us at (603) 448–4448.

In-House Pharmacy

Stoney Brook Veterinary Hospital

As the prescribing veterinarian for your pet's medications, we are able to ensure there is a direct link between the exam room and our pharmacy. This means your pet will receive the right medication, at the right dose, in the right form as quickly as possible. We will also be able to easily guide you on the medication's use as well as monitor its effectiveness. You can also feel confident all the medications we dispense were obtained from safe, reliable sources and stored under the right conditions.

We maintain a complete inventory of pharmaceuticals, vitamins, shampoos, flea and tick control products and heartworm preventatives to meet the needs of your pet. We also carry a full line of prescription diets. If your pet requires a prescription diet we do not carry, we can easily order it for you.

Ensuring that you have convenient and timely access to competitively priced medications is an important aspect of our veterinary practice.

Refills are easy, too. Simply give us a call.

Health Certificates

We provide Interstate and International health certificates. We ask that you investigate your destination's requirements prior to your appointment. Many countries require Rabies titer testing and microchipping. We are able to provide these services for your pet.

Because each destination country has different requirements for your pet’s entry, you are responsible for supplying the list of requirements that need to be met for traveling; we can only accommodate the guidelines you provide. Stoney Brook Veterinary Hospital assumes responsibility for ensuring that all the requirements are met for your particular situation and cannot be held responsible for quarantine, denial of entry, or costs incurred due to unfulfilled requirements for your pet.

End-of-Life Planning

For many pet owners, even thinking about their pet’s final days is difficult and emotional. Our animals are a part of our family. It is this strong bond, born from years of loyal companionship, that makes this time particularly hard to bear.

We encourage you to talk with our veterinary healthcare team about these issues before they become an urgent matter. Find out about your options, including our crematory and burial services, make some key decisions ahead of time, and ask us to add this information to your pet's record. Taking the time to plan, as challenging as it may be, will lessen the pain and stress for you and your pet.

All of us at Stoney Brook Veterinary Hospital will do our best to help you prepare for these important issues with the compassion and sensitivity they require.

We offer at-home euthanasia on a case-by-case basis.

Memorial Services

Our hospital offers memorial gardens and tranquility paths along Stoney Brook. We have a host of memorial options, and when the time comes, we invite you to speak with our staff on preparing arrangements.
