Clinic News 12/11/2020What a year 2020 has been!We have been blessed to be able to keep OVS up and running throughout the pandemic. We are so thankful to all of our clients for their understanding and patience. We have been curbside service throughout most of the pandemic and have kept our staff healthy and safe.Dr. Meredith graduated during the pandemic, so we tried to give her a graduation celebration on her first day at OVS. We cannot wait until we can have an official introduction and welcome to Oakley Vet. She has been a wonderful addition to our team!!Dr. Dave continues to come west to help out. Usually he is here on Wednesdays and Thursdays, but is always gracious enough to help out with a phone call.We opened a satellite clinic in Quinter in November. We have a beautiful building at 319 Main. We will be there on Tuesday and Friday afternoons from 1:00 pm until 4:00 pm. We are set up to do basic small animal procedures and vaccinations. We also have inventory items available for not only your pets, but for livestock. If you need something we do not stock at the Quinter store, call us and we can bring it to Quinter for you to pick up.So, a pandemic evidently isn't enough for us to tackle this year, we have updated our practice software plus have made changes to our communication software. We have so many easy ways to communicate with our clients; via text, phone calls, emails and even good old fashion snail mail. We will try to get your account updated and find out your preferred method of communication(s).Today we go live with our on-line pharmacy. You, our clients, now have a wide array of not only prescription items, but other pet items at your fingertips. We can assist you with your orders or you can log on to oakleyvetservice.vetsfirstchoice.com and place your order. There are many options for free shipping! We would recommend that you continue to order your prescriptions directly from the clinic since we can get them to you much quicker than the online store.

As calving season starts, we wanted to take this opportunity to update you on what is happening at Oakley Veterinary Service. Dr. Jacey is working full time and will do her best to cover all your calving needs. Dr. Dave Rethorst will also continue to come out to Oakley as much as he possibly can. Please do not hesitate to call and let us know what you need.
Dr. Dave is helping us with the VFD’s. Please let us know when you are needing either a new Veterinary Feed Directive or a renewal.
We also wanted to let you know that although there has been and will be pricing increases on our inventory items, our treatment charges will remain the same during this calving season. One pricing increase we would like you to be aware of is the rendering fee from DarPro (the rendering company). They have increased their pick-up charge to $50.00 for cattle over 30 months old; the pick-up charge for a calf is $15.00.
Ivomec Plus injectable is still on backorder and we do have the generic ivermectin. Ivomec Pour On is going to be in short supply, possibly for the entire year. We will do our best to keep a supply of 5 Liter Ivomec on hand. Micotil is on backorder and we hope it will be available in March. Starting next week, we will have Ralgro implants once again on our shelves.
