HEARTWORM SEASON

Every year we see a few dogs who are positive for heartworm disease, which can be a life threatening condition. April is the month, here in Taos, when your dogs should begin preventative care with Heartgard, given once monthly through October. Heartworm tests are 25% off in April so make your appointments early to take advantage of this special savings.

FLEA AND TICK TREATMENT

With the moisture we have had this winter, fleas and ticks will be more of a problem this summer for our pets.  Protect your cats and dogs with topical Frontline Plus which is applied monthly, available at Salazar Road Veterinary Clinic.  If you prefer a product for your dogs that can be given by mouth, come in, or call, to ask if Nex Gard would be a good fit for your dog, also available by prescription at the clinic.


EMPLOYMENT OPPORTUNITIES:

We have digital radiography, in-house lab equipment and a Dentalaire dental unit.  Please send resume to Salazar Road Veterinary Clinic,1025 Salazar Road, Taos, New Mexico, 87571 or scan and email it back by clicking HERE.

  • "When we moved to Taos, we returned to Arkansas once a year to take our dogs to our trusted Vet. When Dr. Kim Sides and the other two amazing vets created what is now Salazar Road Vet it was no longer necessary for us to go out of town for trusted care. Over the ten plus years of our association with Salazar, we have had some major "doggie" medical problems. We have lost a couple of wonderful old friends and have been blessed with the arrival of new pups. Through it all the whole family has benefited from their expert knowledge and loving care. The entire staff is incredible. They love and respect our pups as our family members. We can recommend Salazar Road Vet, the docs and the staff, without reservation and we thank them for all they have done for us."
    Bobbie S. and Bev T.
  • "Eleven dogs, eight cats and 24 years. Salazar Road Vet doctors have been our Veterinarians for all of the above. We rely on Salazar Road Vet to keep our pet healthy, happy and strong.

    These healthcare professionals are straight forward, honest and empathetic and highly skilled and have fostered a trusting bond with the pets and us.

    Of course, there is the routine health care, spay/neuter, annual check-ups, vaccines, tooth cleaning, toe nails, allergies. All these procedures are done flawlessly by the staff....."
