The first step to a good preventative care program is to have annual wellness exams. As your pet ages these will start to be biyearly. During these exams, we will discuss which vaccines are recommended, heartworm and flea/tick prevention, dental care, and nutritional and behavioral recommendations in addition to performing a thorough examination. Our team of veterinary professionals believes that communication is important to help our clients understand why prevention is essential and how it leads to a happy pet and a happy owner. We are always interested in hearing your questions and concerns and helping to provide helpful solutions. learn more
Our team looks forward to welcoming your pet to Anasazi Animal Clinic and will attempt to accommodate all requests to the best of our ability. Emergencies are accepted anytime our clinic is open. If you feel you have an emergency with your pet, please call us or come to the hospital immediately. If possible, it is best to call before coming so that a staff member can advise you on your particular emergency.
Going out of town can often be a stressful experience. Let our dedicated staff at Anasazi Animal Clinic help to make your travel plans enjoyable. Our highly trained staff caters to your pet’s needs and provides care and comfort, allowing you to focus on your trip. We provide boarding that is affordable, safe and comfortable for your cat or dog while you are away.
Our boarding area was added as a service as we wanted to provide a convenience to our clients. Many of our clients are at ease knowing that there is a veterinarian on staff six days of the week. You can even have access to a veterinarian on Sundays if medically necessary. It is the goal of our caring staff to give each individual pet enough personal attention to help them feel as comfortable as possible during their stay with us. We also work hard to keep the area clean and smelling fresh at all times.
Since most cats like to have their own area, we have a separate boarding room for your furry felines. And if that room becomes booked up do not worry…we can still offer time out of the kennel to spend in that room where they have things to climb and a cat tower to scratch.
We also provide towels, blankets, and beds for your pet while you are away so there is no need to bring any personal bedding while boarding. However, if your pet does have something in particular that will help keep them comfortable, feel free to bring it along while you are away. Please bring your pet’s regular food from home to help minimize any stress from being in a different environment. However, we can provide food, if needed.
Emergency Vet & Urgent Care Services
Our veterinary doctors and staff are expertly trained and equipped to handle any urgent care needs your pet has. We are here for you and your pet each week from Monday-Saturday. Emergencies can include poisoning, car accidents and chocolate ingestion. If you ever feel that your pet needs emergency treatment, do not hesitate to call or come in immediately. We are also available for urgent care or if you feel your pet needs to be seen before you are able to get an appointment. When you arrive for urgent care, our team will assess your pet’s condition and get him or her in for treatment as quickly as possible.
We recommend brushing your pet’s teeth at least once a day, but realize this can be a difficult, if not impossible, task to accomplish. This is why yearly oral exams should be scheduled to determine if any further action needs be taken to keep your furry family member happy and healthy. A scary fact: According to the American Dental Society, 80 percent of dogs and 70 percent of cats have oral disease by the age of three. Oral disease can also be an unseen source of pain in many pets.
We will always perform dental radiographs on your pet while they are under anesthesia for a dental cleaning in order to better evaluate their teeth. Many times the teeth look good on the surface, but have issues below the gumline that can only be detected through radiographs. Our team is exceptionally skilled in dentistry; Dr. Mafara has worked closely with his mentors at Arizona Veterinary Dental Specialists to ensure we are providing the most innovative services and methods available for your pet.
Vaccines are products designed to stimulate protective immune responses in pets and prepare them to fight future infections from disease-causing agents. They can lessen the severity of future diseases, and certain vaccines can prevent infection altogether. Today, a variety of vaccines are available for use by veterinarians.

Emergency & Urgent Care
We have a veterinarian and personnel on duty 6 days a week who are trained and equipped to handle any urgent care your pet has. Usually an emergency team consists of at least one veterinarian and several technicians working together to save a pet’s life. Emergencies can be things such a snail bait poisoning, hit by car, and chocolate ingestion. If you ever feel that your pet needs emergency treatment do not hesitate to call or come in immediately. If possible it is best to call before coming in so that a team member can advise you on your particular emergency.
We are also available for urgent care when the condition is not life-threatening, but you feel your pet needs to be seen before you are able to get an appointment. Our veterinarians will work to “squeeze” you in between scheduled appointments. When you arrive, our receptionists will be able to give you an estimate on how long you may have to wait in order to be seen.
We did a lot of research on the different types of laser therapy out there and took our time in selecting the Companion Therapy Laser. We chose this laser in order to help reduce pain in chronic or acute conditions, promote healing after surgery and with wound care, and help with other issues such as ear infections or ring worm. This is an FDA approved medical treatment that uses low-level lasers to stimulate the natural healing capabilities of the body. There is a deep penetrating light that helps the body release endorphins and stimulates the injured cells to heal faster than normal. Many of our clients enjoy this option as it gives them an alternative to using pharmaceuticals and it is capable of producing results fairly quickly with no dangerous side effects.
We can also use the laser when performing spays, neuters, mass removals, laser toenail trims, and more. It helps minimize bleeding and speeds up the healing process so the patients seem to have less pain postoperatively and has been seen to help reduce the risk of infection.
We believe that in order to add years to your pet’s life we must educate our clients about preventative medicine. Educating about preventative care not only benefits your pet but it helps reduce the cost of your pet’s care throughout its life. The first step to a good preventative care program is to have yearly wellness exams. During these wellness exams we will discuss which vaccines are recommended, heartworm and flea/tick prevention, dental care, nutritional and behavior recommendations, and even grooming. We welcome as many questions as you have in order to keep our communication lines as open as possible. We believe that communication is important to help our clients understand the importance of prevention and how it leads to a happy pet and a happy owner.
Anasazi Animal Clinic offers in office ultrasound which is also known as a sonogram. This is a non-invasive procedure that is used to examine the internal organs within the abdomen. Ultrasound usually is used as a secondary diagnostic imaging after radiographs are taken. They can be used together to help come up with a diagnosis for your pet.
Ultrasound is usually done with a mild sedative in order to get better images and to keep your pet as comfortable as possible. When performing abdominal ultrasounds we will shave the abdominal fur in order to capture the proper images. Once we have the area shaved the doctor will place ultrasound gel on the abdomen and capture all important images. We will then send it out to a board certified radiologist to give us their recommendations and their diagnosis.
