Medical Pet Services Provided by Rush Animal Care in Johnston

Rush Animal Care is a leading provider of medical pet services in the Johnston area. We love our animal patients just like their owners do and we will strive to ensure that your pet can enjoy a long, healthy life. Medical pet services can encompass a wide range of services for a variety of pets.  An animal’s health and well-being is every bit as complicated as human health. Given that pets can’t communicate with us directly, treating animals can be even more difficult in some cases.


Treating a cat is quite different than treating a dog. Likewise, treating a bird is very different than treating a lizard. Every animal requires its own unique approach. That’s why it’s best to work with trusted, experienced veterinarians, like Dr. Barb Rush at Rush Animal Care. Dr. Rush has been providing pet services in Johnston for over 25 years.

Medical Pet Services Provided

Dr. Rush’s vast experience allows her and her team to provide a huge range of veterinary services. Some of the many services that Rush Animal Care provides include:

  • Pet dental cleaning and health
  • Tick and flea management
  • Cold and sneezing treatment
  • Dietary counseling
  • Chronic pet pain treatment
  • Laser treatment for arthritis, muscle strains, etc.
  • Boarding and grooming
  • Chronic pet illness management
  • Advanced pet surger

We also place a special emphasis on preventative care. The best treatment for a pet is ensuring that no veterinary treatment is required in the first place. The veterinary experts at Rush Animal Care will work with you and your family to ensure that your dog, cat, or other animal enjoys a healthy lifestyle.

Removing ticks and fleas, for example, can be very difficult. While we can free your pet of such parasites, prevention is an even better method. That’s why our veterinary staff members are always happy to work with pet owners to reduce the risk of parasite infestations.

Likewise, a healthy diet provides a strong foundation for a healthy life. Whether you have a dog, cat, bird, or another animal, we can provide dietary advice as a part of our pet services. Any questions or specific concerns regarding your pet? Always feel free to ask!

Accompany Your Pet at Rush Animal Care

Some veterinarians prefer to operate from behind the curtains. At Rush Animal Care, you’ll be able to accompany your pet during most procedures. You can be a part of the treatment process, soothing your animal if he or she gets nervous. We’re also glad to explain medical pet procedures as they unfold. So if you’re looking for a kind and caring veterinary expert in Johnston, get in touch with Rush Animal Care today.
