Annual Wellness Exams:
The comprehensive physical exam is the most important service we provide because every diagnosis begins here. The doctor will check all aspects of your pet's health including eyes, ears, teeth, skin, joint mobility, and behavioral issues. We have many other services at our disposal including the ability to perform blood analysis, radiographs, and urinalysis. The physical exam allows the doctor the ability to determine which diagnostic tests will be most beneficial.
Along with the wellness exam, parasite screening, and deworming, the doctor and staff will devise a vaccination plan to suit the individual needs of your pet.
One in three pets will become lost in their lifetimes. According to the American Humane Association only 17% of dogs and 2% of cats will find their way home. That is why we strongly recommend that your pet be microchipped. Chips are inserted under the skin with a single use syringe much like a vaccination. These chips provide your pet's unique number when scanned with a hand held microchip reader.
Our hospital is equipped with in-house diagnostic services including radiology, laboratory facilities, ECG, and glaucoma screening. Preanesthetic testing screens for undetected health problems. This helps limit the risk of anesthesia and is recommended for all surgical procedures. When an injury or illness strikes we can provide information quickly so as to improve chances of a positive outcome.
Our surgical services encompass a wide variety of procedures including but not limited to foreign body removal, biopsy, tumor resection, eyelid surgery, enucleation, intestinal resection and anastomosis, hernia repair, bladder stone removal as well as spaying and neutering.
Our surgical patients are closely monitored so we can immediately address any changes in our patient's condition. We provide pain management before and after surgery.
This is mandatory for all surgical procedures. You may be contacted if the doctor feels additional pain medication is necessary.
Periodontal disease is the most common infection seen in veterinary medicine today. Oral health has a profound effect on your pet's general health. Regular dental visits are strongly recommended to remove the plaque and tarter that cause bacteria. All dental procedures including ultrasonic scaling and polishing while under general anesthesia.
We provide dietary counseling for each stage of life. We may recommend prescription diets that meet the necessary nutritional requirements for your pet.
A mosquito borne illness, heartworm disease is common in our area. It affects dogs and cats. Our hospital recommends annual testing as well as monthly protection.
