Clients, rescues, and friends:

 

We will be closing the Rascal Animal Hospital for much needed maintenance, updating, and restructuring beginning May 20, 2019 and will reopen Monday June 3rd, 2019. It is hard to believe it is almost 8 years since we opened! As times change and the needs of our patients and clients evolve, so must we. Because of our high work load, it is not feasible to make changes to the hospital and properly train our staff while open for business. We understand it will be an inconvenience, but we hope the end result will allow us to provide better care and service to our patients and their caretakers.

 

During these two weeks, we will still have a doctor available for follow up recheck exams on our patients as well as to perform previously scheduled surgeries and procedures. Wellness exams will be referred to the Rascal Unit wellness and vaccine clinics. Emergencies will be referred to OSU Dublin, OSU campus, MedVet Hilliard, and MedVet Worthington.

 

We will update our website and social media pages with information as it is available.

 

We appreciate everyone’s patience and understanding during this growth process. Quality patient care is our ultimate goal, and we feel this step is necessary to ensure we continue to provide excellent care.

q. Why are your prices so cheap? Are you cutting corners to cut prices?

Image00035

a. The Rascal Animal Hospital and Rascal Unit are able to provide low costs due to the high volume of patients we see and careful control of expenses. Our supplies and equipment are of high quality as is the care received by our patients. That is why we are proud to say that the Rascal Animal Hospital and Emergency Care is accredited by the American Animal Hospital Association.

q. What is the black line on the belly of my female dog/cat after surgery?

a. Our surgeons place tattoo ink on all female sterilizations to make it easy to know that the pet has been sterilized. If a patient sterilized at our facility is taken to a humane society or veterinary facility, they will immediately identify them as sterilized and this will prevent them from having an unnecessary abdominal exploratory.

q. My pet’s spay incision is very small. What all came out?

a. Our surgeons perform full overiohysterectomies. This means that the ovaries and the uterus are removed during the procedure. Our surgeons are trained to make small incisions whenever possible to decrease the risk of complications as well as to decrease discomfort at the surgery site.

q. Why won’t you call in my pet’s prescription to some online pharmacies?

a. While we agree that everyone has a choice in where to purchase products, the Rascal Animal Hospital doctors believe that our patients should only receive products that are purchased directly from the manufacturer and not through third party vendors. The use of a ‘third party’ increases the risk of the product being adulterated, diluted, or stored inadequately. For this reason, our doctors will write a prescription upon request, but purchase of medications with unknown background is not recommended and you do so at your own risk.

Information on cat declawing

At the Rascal Animal Hospital, we no longer perform cat declaws. This is usually an unnecessary procedure with many possible complications. It also leaves cats defenseless in the event they escape or are allowed to be indoor/outdoor or outdoor only. Cats are more likely to develop behavioral problems (aggression, fear, urine marking) after declawing procedures. There are many safe alternatives for declawing and they can be found at AVMA Flyer on Declawing.

In medically required circumstances, we will make exceptions. When declawing is performed, the Rascal Animal Hospital surgeons utilize a CO2 laser for the procedure. RAH has invested in CO2 laser technology to provide better surgical care as well as less surgical pain and decreased hospital stay. For more information or questions please email info@rascalanimalhospital.com.

Declawing should only be done as a last resort and, if done, proper pain control is extremely important. At Rascal Animal Hospital pain medication is not optional. Whenever possible, please consider humane alternatives to this procedure. We reserve the right to refuse declawing procedures to patients based on age, health condition or other risks.

We will no longer accept checks as a form of payment.

Acceptable forms of payment:
Credit/Debit Cards
Cash
Care Credit
