- Wellness & Preventative Care Examinations
The physical examination is one of the most important components of your pet's veterinary care. The veterinarian will examine your pet from head to tail, as well as everything in between. Physical examinations allow us to detect any abnormalities that can go undetected at home and potentially lead to serious problems.
Just like any other member of your family, your pet requires certain vaccinations to live a happy and healthy life. Vaccinations protect your pet against serious and sometimes life threatening diseases.
Blood, urine and stool testing help us check for infection. Not to mention, blood testing can detect illness in your pet even before any symptoms appear. Annual wellness blood testing allows us to compare your pet's blood values every year. We also perform ear swabs, skin scrapings and fine needle aspirates to identify various cells.
Our surgical procedures include spaying and neutering, dewclaw and lump removal, cruciate repairs as well as comprehensive dental cleanings and extractions. We do pre-anesthetic blood work to ensure your pet is healthy enough to undergo anesthesia. Our procedures include a full day of hospitalization and monitoring by our doctors and veterinary technicians. We also include IV fluids to keep your pet hydrated which will allow them to recover faster.
- Microchip Pet Identification
Microchips are a safe, permanent way of identifying your pet and protect them for a lifetime. A small rice sized computer chip is placed under the skin in the shoulder area of your pet, much like a vaccination injection. Should your pet go missing and be taken to a veterinary clinic or shelter, your pet will be scanned and identified.
- Ultrasound Technology
Ultrasound technology is used to create images of your pet's organs such as their liver, kidneys, bladder and pancreas in order to detect any growths, gallstones or blockages.
X-rays are used to create images of your pet's soft tissue, organs and bones. This procedure allows us to detect, diagnose and treat various diseases and injuries such as arthritis, pneumonia, bone tumors and broken bones.
- Parasite Prevention
Parasite prevention is used to protect your pet against ticks, fleas and heartworm. Ticks can transmit numerous diseases such as Lyme disease while heartworm is transmitted by mosquitoes which cause worms to reside in a dog's lung arteries and heart.
