Annual exams can provide early detection of disease. Our veterinarians preform a thorough examination to identify any potential problems and can quickly implement the proper treatment plan. Our wellness program is based on disease prevention. Ask our veterinarians to recommend a vaccination, deworming, and heartworm prevention plan that is suitable for you and your pets’ needs.
Establishing a preventive care plan in a young animal is essential for a long and happy life. For only the first few weeks of a young animal’s life it is protected by antibodies from its mother. After that point an effective vaccination and deworming protocol is necessary to prevent disease. Let our veterinarians provide guidance in tailoring a preventive care plan that is right for your pet.
Anesthesia is necessary when performing a dental. Anesthesia provides immobilization in order to clean below the gum line, pain control, and the ability to place an endotracheal tube, so bacterial products do not enter the respiratory system. Dentals are needed every few years to every year depending on the age and breed of you pets. The dental includes an oral exam, calculus removal, subgingival (below the gumline) scaling, and tooth polishing.
Digital X-Rays allows for a greater evaluation of the internal structures. In addition, the digital technology requires less X-Ray beam exposure, which is save for your pets.
Diagnostic tests are indispensable to the diagnosis of diseases and other conditions. Our hospital provides reasonably priced in-house testing for heartworm disease, feline retroviral diseases, urinalysis, cytology, fecal exams as well as CBC and blood chemistry panels. We also utilize outside laboratories with state of the art facilities who can perform various specialized blood and other clinical pathology testing.
All of our surgical procedures are performed with a cutting edge surgical laser which help reduce perioperative pain, swelling and bleeding during surgery.
Anesthesia Monitoring- We use anesthetic monitoring equipment as well as our highly trained Registered Veterinary Technicians to help ensure the best possible safety while you pet is under anesthesia.
Emergencies can happen at any time of the day. We provide 24 hour service to our clients to ensure our patients safety and health. Our veterinarians are available to determine if your animal needs immediate attention and can provide assistance if necessary.
