Dog and Cat Health Care

cat-dog-282x163We provide veterinary care for dogs and cats that is both “state-of-the-art” and “state-of-the-heart”, with an emphasis on caring for both the patient and the family. Services include:

Canine and Feline medicine and surgery

We own or access the most advanced medical diagnostic and treatment equipment and techniques available in veterinary medicine today. Additionally, we perform both outpatient routine surgeries such as spays and neuters as well as more advanced procedures such as exploratory surgeries, cruciate repairs, patellar luxation repairs, bladder stone removals, and tumor removals.

Laser and Cryosurgery

In addition to traditional methods, we offer advanced techniques such as laser surgery and cryosurgery, allowing out doctors to choose the most appropriate method to treat their patients.  Our state-of-the-art Aesculight CO2 laser allows for less pain, swelling, and discomfort after surgery, while our Brymill mini cryo-unit freezes lesions more quickly, completely, and effectively than other freezing methods.

Dentistry

We provide professional dental cleanings, using state-of-the-art compressor driven Schein dental units and ultrasonic scalers. We also perform simple and surgical dental extractions when indicated.

We own and operate a Nomad handheld dental x-ray unit and Schick digital sensor to identify diseased tooth roots during routine professional dental cleanings. Proper treatment can then be performed to relieve discomfort and restore oral health.

In-House Laboratory

Our in-house laboratory includes an Abaxis serum chemistry machine that allows us to analyze blood samples quickly. For critically ill patients, we can obtain blood results in under 20 minutes and, for some patients, every minute counts. Other lab equipment we own in-house include: Olympus binocular microscope, refractometer,centrifuge and Stat-Spin centrifuge, Alphatrac glucometer, and Idexx Snap ELISA tests.

In-House Pharmacy

Our full service in-house veterinary pharmacy is fully stocked with a wide range of competitively priced quality medications and pet care products.

Diagnostic Ultrasound

We use a GE LOGIQ e Vet Ultrasound unit for performing diagnostic ultrasounds of the abdomen and echocardiograms of the heart. When indicated, we consult with radiology specialists to obtain interpretations in difficult cases.

Electrocardiography

We own and use a Vetronics computerized ECG machine to assist in the diagnosis of heart diseases in dogs and cats. The ECG also allows us to screen presurgical and senior patients for dangerous conditions before they become evident.

Blood Pressure Monitors

We own and utilize both a Parks doppler and a PetMap oscillometric blood pressure monitor to aid in the diagnosis of hypertension in both dogs and cats.

Cardell Multiparameter Monitor and Pulse Oximeters

These high-tech devices allow for monitoring multiple key physiological parameters in anesthetized or seriously ill patients. This allows doctors to make rapid, critical, and life-saving adjustments to a patient’s care during surgery and hospitalization.

Digital Radiography

We own and operate a Sound-Eklin DR digital radiography unit to produce digital x-ray images. Digital images can be easily manipulated and optimized for analysis as well as emailed or copied to disc for transfer to another facility.
