Radiographs are an important tool that doctors use in diagnosing many medical problems and conditions. We have the capabilities of taking and processing digital x-rays on site with our state of the art Fuji digital x-ray system. This allows for faster results for our clients and aids in developing an appropriate treatment plan for our patients.
X-rays allow us to examine internal organs and bones. We are able to visualize size, shape and position of these structures. We are also able to see abnormalities such as bladder and kidney stones, broken bones, and some ingested objects. Sometimes special dyes are administered to the patient to help in evaluating the function of some systems.
Ultrasound is another tool used in diagnosing and following a patient’s condition. It allows us to examine internal organs and organ functions in a non-invasive way.
We are often able to evaluate abdominal and cardiac abnormalities, measure kidneys and intestinal layers and find the locations of some tumors.
Other animal hospitals refer their patients so we can perform an ultrasound. When this happens we review the findings with the owner of the patient and then forward all of the information to the patient's regular/referring veterinarian.
An ECG can be an extremely valuable tool. It gives us the ability to monitor cardiac problems and progression. ECG’s are often utilized in conjunction with radiographs and/or an ultrasound to thoroughly evaluate cardiac conditions. A few of the different cardiac diseases that can be evaluated include: arrhythmias, pericardial diseases and evaluation of drug therapy.
Oral hygiene is as important for our pets as it is for ourselves. Most of us do not brush our pet’s teeth as often as we should. Tartar buildup is inevitable. On every physical exam your pet receives our doctors evaluate his/her mouth. It is not uncommon for a middle age to older pet to need a dental cleaning.
Our licensed technicians are skilled in cleaning your pet’s teeth under general anesthesia. The teeth are scaled of dental tartar, polished and rinsed with a Chlorhexadine rinse. Your pet will spend the day with us and you will be able to speak with a technician when you pick him up to discuss the procedure and recommended follow up care at home.
Teeth may have rotten or exposed roots, fractures or receding gums. Be assured we only recommend extracting teeth when absolutely necessary.
Our Digital Dental Xray
Unit allows the doctor to
see what's happening to
your pet's teeth below the
gum line and deal with
problems that would
otherwise go unnoticed
until tooth pain develops.
Our surgeons not only perform spay and neuter procedures, we also carry out; cruciate surgeries, tumor removals, declaws, exploratory surgeries, remove bladder stones, cesarean sections and necessary reconstructive surgery. This is just a short list of the surgeries we can perform.
Our Surgical Suite allows us to perform various procedures on many different species of patients. We perform surgery not only on our feline and canine patients, but avian, reptile, and many other small mammals.
Our licensed veterinary technicians utilize their skills to monitor all patients before, during and after surgery. They are assisted by our surgical monitors which evaluate blood pressure, oxygen saturation in the blood, body temperature, heart rate, CO2 levels and resp1rations.
Accuvet CO2 Laser
Our surgeons utilize the benefits of the CO2 laser during all surgical procedures. The Accuvet Laser provides faster recovery for our patients because it:
-Reduces blood loss during surgery as compared to the traditional scalpel blade.
-Causes the patient less pain therefore allowing for a more comfortable recovery.
A pet microchip creates a forever bond between you and the pet you love. And together with the HomeAgain pet recovery system, you’ll give your pet the best chance of coming back home to you.
