Dr. Richard Rogoff and Dr. Deborah Colker have been helping owners care for their beloved pets at Kendall Animal Clinic on Kendall Drive since 1993.
With more than 55 years of combined experience in veterinary medicine, the passionate team has seen it all — helping their clients through good times and bad. During these tough economic times, new and different challenges have arisen for pet owners, and Drs. Rogoff and Colker remain committed to providing personalized, expert healthcare for their clients’ pets.
“We are very aware of the current economic conditions and how this has affected pet owners,” Dr. Rogoff said. “Because of this, we strive to offer our clients and patients quality medical care, providing the very best service at the fairest prices.”
Consistent, preventative care is important to keep pets healthy. Kendall Animal Clinic sends its clients friendly reminders, along with a copy of Healthy Pet magazine, to notify them when their pet’s vaccinations are due. The clinic provides quality services such as vaccinations, population control surgery, dental care, homeopathic medicine, nutrition counseling, allergy testing and treatment, aging pet care, pregnancy testing, flea and tick baths, heartworm prevention and treatment.
The full-service clinic conducts echocardiograms and radiography to diagnose heart disease. The hospital also provides a complete range of surgical services and offers cancer prevention and alternative treatment methods. With so many years of experience, Drs. Rogoff and Colker recognize the importance of offering compassionate end-of-life counseling and pet memorial options.
Kendall Animal Clinic offers pet owners the Prepaid Healthcare Plan for cats and dogs, a cost-savings membership plan that affords a 10-50 percent discount on most veterinary services and medications.
Dr. Rogoff, who graduated from the University of Pennsylvania, has been practicing veterinary medicine since 1970 and has a special interest in dermatology. Dr. Colker graduated from Ohio State University and has a special interest in feline medicine and surgery.
“We both love what we do,” Dr. Rogoff said. “We take great pride in our practice and clinic and maintain the highest standards. Our clients are really getting a great value — experienced veterinarians providing quality medical care in a pristine and professional environment.”
The clinic’s state-of-the-art laboratory gives the doctors the ability to immediately analyze blood samples and skin impressions in order to diagnose their patients quickly and accurately.
The doctors know that dispensing medicine to some pets can be difficult. To make this task more pleasant for pet owners and their pets, Kendall Animal Clinic offers compounded chewable pet treats with medicine inside. Administering medication transdermally, or through the skin, is another option that is especially beneficial to cat owners.
“We work very hard to stay educated and current so that we can offer our clients the best, most up-to-date diagnosis and treatment options,” Dr. Rogoff said.
Kendall Animal Clinic has separate cat and dog exam rooms, X-ray facility, surgery center, medical bathing area, laboratory, air-conditioned boarding facility and customer lounge. The clinic, which is decorated in a Southwestern motif and features framed photos from around the world, has high beam ceilings and a warm, comfortable feel.
Tucked in the back of the professional center on Kendall Drive, the search for this special hospital is well worth it. Kendall Animal Clinic is located at 10521 N. Kendall Drive, Suite E101, and the phone number is 305-274-6434. For more information, visit online at www.kendallanimalclinic.com.
