Caring for Injured or Ill Dogs or Cats
When illness and injury occur, we are here for you and your pets! We suggest calling our office when symptoms of illness or injury are first noticed. Our support team can help you determine if a doctor’s visit is needed. Appointments can typically be scheduled within 24 hours; emergencies are accommodated immediately whenever possible.
Our hospital is equipped to provide the general laboratory testing, diagnostic imaging, and pharmaceuticals needed to identify and treat common ailments our four-legged companions face.
Our animal medical surgical services include:
- Blood, urine, and fecal analysis
- Ear and skin cytology
- Dental X-Rays
- Fluid Therapy
- Therapeutic Diets
- Prescription Medications
If it is in the best interest of your pet, we may recommend referring complex medical conditions to area board certified specialists. In these cases, our doctors will work on behalf of you and your pet to communicate all pertinent information and remain abreast to any changes and progress throughout the course of treatment.
Quality Surgical Care by Skilled Veterinarians
Our doctors are available for surgery Monday – Thursday and routinely perform procedures such as spays, castrations, declaws, and tumor removals. We are also equipped for more extensive surgical procedures when necessary. Advanced orthopedic procedures are referred to Veterinary Surgical Specialists who send board certified surgeons to our hospital as needed.
Proper aseptic techniques for instrumentation and the surgery field are followed by our surgeons and technicians. Each procedure is monitored and recorded by a certified veterinary technician to ensure the safety of your pet. As a precaution, we strongly recommend a pre-anesthetic blood panel for all patients undergoing general anesthesia which will help us identify and plan for potential complication.
After morning procedures, patients are allowed to recover in a warm, padded kennel as the effects of anesthesia wear off. Patients are checked regularly for comfort and adequate pain control. The majority of our surgeries are outpatient procedures allowing your pet to be picked up in the late afternoon and finish recovering in the comfort of your home. We will schedule a discharge time so we have time to answer your questions and provide you with all the information you will need to care for your pet in the days following surgery.
