DAY CARE- Canine Papilloma Virus.
We will be checking the mouth of every dog that enters daycare. This
is just a standard precaution as we are checking for the Canine
Papilloma Virus. It presents itself as a wart-like bump along the gums
and the sides of the mouth. Papilloma is a virus that is spread from
dog to dog through saliva. If you think your dog has Papilloma, please
do not bring your dog to daycare. We have water bowls,
toys, and pools which would increase the chance of spreading the virus. We also check every dog, every visit, for fleas.

BOARDING -SylvaniaVET boarding is just finishing up their busy summer season and things are going great! We will now be preparing for the upcoming holidays. Remember that we have heated floors during the cold months so your dogs are nice and cozy! We can't wait to see your pets for the Labor Day weekend!
- Alicia, Boarding manager
GROOMING - Is your pet shedding all over your house? Tumbleweeds of hair everywhere? Vacuuming every day? Well, we have our furminating shampoo/conditioner and furminator brush to help eliminate those nasty tumbleweeds. Ask us about our de-shedding package.
Feeling a little fancy? So are we! We love our four paw friends so much we would love to doll them up with bows and bandanas. We are even experimenting with tattoos! Using colorful blow pens and stencils there's no end in sight. Although it is still a work in progress, let us know if you would like to try!
FRONT DESK - It has been a good year so far up at reception. There have been a few changes, but we continue to grow as a team and work toward making client relations an always positive experience. We have two new faces this year, Amanda and Taylor. Please be sure to welcome them to the SylvaniaVET family!
- Marlee, Reception.
AFTER HOURS - SylvaniaVET offers 24 hr care 365 days of the year. A Registered Veterinary Technician and a Veterinary Assistant are in the hospital monitoring patients throughout the night.
Fido not acting right? Fluffy just isn't herself? The emergency staff can answer middle of the night questions to give you peace of mind. Your pet can also be admitted anytime of the night for observation. A Veterinarian is on call and can see patients on an emergency basis if needed.
Plane get in late? Need to get an extra early start to your day? The emergency staff does late pickups and early drop offs for surgery, daycare and boarding.
The ER staff at SylvaniaVET are here for you anytime after the office closes.

AAHA- Did you know that SylvaniaVET is one of only 3 hospitals in the Toledo area that is regularly inspected and adheres to quality and customer service standards much like human hospitals? The AAHA standards that we follow were developed with high quality care in mind. By following the standards, we are in a better position to provide patients with the best in veterinary care. AAHA standards are a mark of distinction that sets our practice apart from others. It means we've worked hard to create, implement and update our protocols and to periodically review the procedures we're doing to make sure we're up-to-date and being the best we can be!
