WELLNESS CARE PROGRAMS
We provide a complete wellness program for your pet to keep them healthy. This starts with a full examination by the doctor and a consultation with you about what your pet’s specific needs and risks are in relation to existing conditions, exposures, their environment and your concerns.
We will then recommend appropriate diagnostic tests, immunizations, diets, etc., to keep your pet in optimal health. Since your pets cannot tell us when something is wrong, we need to be proactive in running appropriate diagnostics to detect disease early when it can be more effectively treated. This will also allow us to gather information about what is normal for your pet so that we can watch for trends in the tests over time. Based upon our findings, we can make specific recommendations for diet, exercise, treatment, behavior modification or further testing. We offer all of this to help you ensure that your pet receives the best care available.
MEDICAL SERVICES AND DIAGNOSTICS
Our internal medicine service allows for diagnosis of most medical conditions affecting pets. We begin with a comprehensive examination. The examination findings are then used to determine a diagnostic plan. Our hospital possesses up-to-date diagnostic equipment, including a complete laboratory, digital radiology (x-rays) conducted in a purpose built radiology suite in compliance with applicable Code, dental radiology (x-rays), digital ultrasound, Pet-MRI, ECG and in-house blood analysis machines, etc. After an accurate diagnosis is made, our complete pharmacy allows us to begin treatment immediately, whether treatment consists of outpatient care or intensive care in the hospital.
Our sterile surgery suite is fully equipped with all the high tech tools needed to provide the safest surgical care. We have patient warming devices, numerous patient monitors, isoflurane gas anesthetic and our veterinary nurses / technicians to monitor patients at all times.
Not only do we provide routine surgeries and procedures like spay/neuter, but we also offer major abdominal, thoracic and trauma surgery, ophthalmic surgeries, as well as dental and orthopedic surgical procedures. We work with Board Certified Radiologists, Board Certified Dentists, and consulting Veterinary Surgeons specializing in advanced orthopedics.
Our Hospital allows patients to recover from surgery as comfortably and safely as possible. They are monitored and kept warm and cozy with appropriate pain relief until they are fully recovered. They are then sent home when appropriate with more pain medication. Pain relief is a huge part of proper healing.
Our Veterinary Surgeons have been trained in dental radiography (x-rays) and surgical dental extractions by Board Certified Veterinary Dentists.
We offer regular dental health assessments and dental cleanings. Dental cleanings consist of a scale and polish procedure which takes place while your pet is under general anesthesia. Regular cleanings can help prevent periodontal disease, pain and tooth loss.
We offer dental radiography (x-rays) to help us determine the stage of periodontal disease in your pet and, where medically necessary, our Veterinary Surgeons provide dental extractions surgery, which takes place while your pet is under general anesthesia.
If you have a pet that has smelly breath or no longer seems interested in his/her food, please contact us for a complimentary Dental Assessment. You will be pleasantly surprised at how much happier your pet will be after a dental procedure with our trained practitioners! A healthy mouth can give your pet a new lease on life.
Routine vaccinations are vital to the health and protection of your pet and prevent against viral diseases. We offer a comprehensive vaccination program to keep your pet happy and healthy.
Grooming and bathing is an important part of the health of your pet. We offer complete grooming services for both dogs and cats. Grooming appointments include the bath, hair trimming, nail trimming and ear cleaning.
MICROCHIPPING AND PET SUPPLIES
Microchipping has become a very popular and safe way to permanently identify your pet and you as the owner in the unfortunate case that your pet is lost. Microchipping involves placement of a small electronic chip the size and shape of a piece of rice just under the skin in the neck area. A needle is used to inject the chip. The injection is comparable to a regular vaccine injection.
If your pet becomes lost and is transported to the SPCA, the Animal Warden or another Veterinary Clinic they will be able to scan your pet for the chip and identify you as the owner of your pet. The scanner is similar to a scanner found in the grocery store. We advise you to use this system of identification as well as a collar identification system on your pet. Please remember to keep your address and other contact details up to date with your Veterinary Clinic so that when your pet is found someone will be able to contact you.
HOUSE CALL, VETERINARY CONCIERGE AND IN-HOME EUTHANASIA VISITS
We provide scheduled house calls for medical services (where possible) in the comfort of your home via our Pet Ambulance.
While not appropriate for all patients, in-home care can be useful for:
• compassionate euthanasia at home
• patients that are overly stressed in the hospital setting
• patients that are difficult or impractical to transport, such as advanced geriatrics and very infirm patients
• housebound clients
• behavioral evaluations and consultations where evaluation at home provides additional information
Home visits are less suitable for:
• serious and urgent illnesses
• emergency triage
• diagnostic evaluation requiring equipment
Our emphasis is on your pet’s quality of life. Optimum care is achieved when the client and veterinarian work together as a team.
24/7 EMERGENCY CARE
We are available to provide 24/7 On Call Emergency Service to our Veterinary Clients.
