Services we offer include, but are not limited to:
Our veterinarians and staff believe a healthy start begins with a healthy diet, testing for Feline Leukemia and FIV in all kittens, testing and treating for worms and parasites including hookworm, roundworm, and heartworm in both kittens and puppies, in addition to an age appropriate series of vaccinations designed to prevent several diseases and viruses including Rabies, Canine Distemper, Hepatitis, Parvovirus, Canine Infectious Bronchitis (Kennel Cough), Feline upper-respiratory infections and Feline Leukemia, just to name a few.
We offer in house digital radiology. Radiographs allow the doctor to view and get important information regarding bone structure, the heart, lungs and other organs. Radiographs can be essential in diagnosing your pet's condition.
We also offer in house Dental Cleanings for your pet. This procedure is generally recommended for pets 2 years of age or older who are experiencing moderate to severe tarter build up, inflammation or infection of the gum tissue surrounding the teeth (gingivitis), and or bad breath that does not improve with the use of preventative products. The procedure involves performing a thorough dental exam, pre-anesthetic blood work to ensure that liver and kidney functions are satisfactory for anesthesia, and occasionally antibiotic treatment is necessary before a full dental cleaning can be performed.
We are proud to offer an array of surgical services. We first provide your pet with a thorough pre-anesthetic evaluation including an exam and blood work. The bloodwork is included with all surgical procedures, but highly recommended for all surgical patients. Our hospital has a state of the art surgical suite that allows our veterinarians to perform all common procedures including:
- Limited orthopedic repair
- Spay and neuter
- Hematoma repair
- Bladder stone removal
- Hernia repairs
- Laceration and wound repair
- Minor eye surgery
- Mass and tumor removal
- Anal gland removal
Blood and urinalysis testing can help us determine causes of illness accurately, safely, and quickly. This allows us to diagnose conditions early and monitor progress of medical treatment. Some of the more common tests evaluate organ function, electrolyte status, hormone levels, toxin exposure, pre-anesthetic screenings, and medication monitoring for any possible side effects of long-term use.
With our in-house laboratory we are able to perform various types of testing that can assist in the diagnosis and treatment of your pet.
Various testing includes:
