Caring and compassionate veterinary care.
Cody Pet Hospital of Norfolk, Massachusetts, is a different kind of animal clinic. In addition to wellness exams, vaccinations, evaluations, and treatments, our facility features a complete in-house lab consisting of a microscope for cytology, urinalysis, and parasite detection, along with on-site blood testing.
Your pets are family, and their health comes first.
We have an effective prevention program to protect your pet against a number of serious diseases. Our programs cover:
• Stomach Parasites (Tapeworm, Roundworms, Hookworms, and Whipworms)
• Heartworm Disease
• Flea, Tick, & Mite Infestations
For cats, we recommend flea and tick prevention year round. In addition, stool samples on cats should be checked annually. Outdoor cats should be dewormed on a regular basis since they can get worms from hunting. Dogs need an annual heartworm test along with annual parasite screening. Dogs also need to take flea tick and heartworm prevention year round. Like cats, they also need to have an intestinal parasite screen once a year.
We are a full service hospital and do surgery Monday through Friday. Spay and neuter surgeries are the most common, but we also do many types of soft tissue surgery, some of which are listed below. We use safe anesthesia, and our surgical and anesthectic protocols have met national standards determined by the American Animal Hospital Association.
The surgeries we perform include: Spay, Neuter, C-Section, Pyometra, Bladder Stones, Lump and Tumor removal, Intestinal foreign body removal, Splenectomy, Eye surgery, Toe or limb amputation, Abscess surgery, Anal gland surgery, Full thickness surgical biopsies, and many other soft tissue surgeries.
If your pet is vomiting, has diarrhea, is coughing, sneezing, not eating well, or just seems more tired, we can help you find out what is wrong and start a treatment plan. We have a full laboratory in house for rapid diagnosis and immediate treatment for your pet. We know how important your pet’s health is and we can usually get your pet in to be seen right away.
If your pet has red itchy ears, itchy skin, or a rash your pet may have allergies. Pets don’t usually get the usual itchy eyes and a runny nose that we get when they are allergic, instead they get ear infections, itchy skin, and red, infected skin.
Digital x-rays provide far greater detail than a standard x-ray. In the process, we are able to email it to other animal surgeons to take care of your pet’s needs.

Puppy & Kitten Care
Puppy and kitten care consists of checkups, spays and neuters, de-worming, and vaccinations. We also help you teach the dog good habits and behavior so they will become a happy, healthy, and obedient member of the family. Pediatric exams are very important both for deworming and vaccinations, but also for behavior consultation and general wellness care.
Our cats and dogs become senior at age eight. Cats may develop thyroid or kidney, or other diseases and dogs will likely develop arthritis. Cats especially are very good at hiding illness. For our senior pets, we recommend two visits a year. One visit for general checkup and vaccinations and a second visit for the senior wellness exam with a comprehensive blood and urine lab panel. The senior wellness lab work allows us to detect disease and treat it early and makes it possible to treat arthritis and other conditions safely. Our senior pets are very special!
Cats and Dogs Wellness Checkups
We keep your pet healthy throughout your cat or dog’s life. Annual, and six-month checkups, parasite prevention, and lab work are all done at the right times to keep your pet healthy and happy. At the annual checkup, we will check your pet’s weight, diet, and teeth. We also check eyes, ears, heart, lungs, abdomen, neurological status, and urogenital and musculoskeletal systems. For cats, we recommend flea and tick prevention year round. Also, stool samples on cats should be checked annually. Outdoor cats should be dewormed on a regular basis since they can get worms from hunting. For cats, we recommend flea and tick prevention year round.

We do dentistry work for cats and dogs to help keep their teeth clean. Our doctors also perform extractions when a tooth is broken or if it is decaying.
As veterinary medicine becomes more advanced, we can often treat and cure diseases that in the past we could not. We hope that your pet never gets sick or injured, but if your pet does, veterinary medicine may have a compete cure. We recommend that you get pet insurance for your pet to prevent an unforeseen financial burden for you and your family.
