Our dental suite includes dental radiography (x-rays), as well as an ultrasonic scaler and high-speed drill. This equipment provides us the ability to perform dental care on your pet that any dentist would appreciate! We even use nerve blocks to keep your pet comfortable.
|Before Teeth Cleaning
After Teeth Cleaning
- Digital Dental Radiography - Just like the system your dentist uses to x-ray your teeth! We use this to look at the tooth below the gum-line and find hidden damage before it causes your pet pain or problems.
- Ultrasonic scaler - Allows us to remove all the plaque and tartar from the surfaces of your pet’s teeth. That build-up causes the terrible odor in a pet’s breath! Your pet’s breath will no longer knock you off your feet after a thorough cleaning!
- Polisher - Once the plaque and tartar have been removed from your pet’s teeth, we polish the enamel to smooth the tooth surface so plaque and tartar have difficulty sticking. This dramatically extends the time between cleanings!
- High-speed drill - If your pet requires extractions (teeth to be pulled), we have the equipment to do this correctly! The high-speed drill allows us to gently remove any diseased teeth without causing further damage or pain to your pet’s mouth.
- Home care - We will discuss this very important step for your pet’s dental health. We recommend brushing your pet’s teeth to minimize plaque and tartar build-up. Most pets tolerate this very well with some training. There are a number of products that can be used at home to improve your pets dental health. Home care is the easiest way to help reduce bad breath and extend the time between dental cleanings.
Medical Care Information
- Complete Blood Counts offer us quick information regarding your pet’s hydration status, infections, and some types of cancer.
- Chemistry Panels serve as a guide to your pet’s organ function, including the liver and kidneys, and some metabolic diseases.
- Cytology allow us to look at individual cells from many types of samples, including ear infections, skin masses, lumps and skin infections. This helps us identify what types of infections may be present or even what type of tumor a lump may be.
- Snap Tests allow us to quickly screen for various types of disease, including heartworm, Lyme, Feline Leukemia and pancreatitis.
- Digital radiography - This x-ray system allows us to take a clear look at your pet’s bones, heart, lungs and other internal organs. If we’ve taken an x-ray of your pet, just ask to see it!
- Ultrasound allows us to take a closer look at your pet’s internal organs and their structure. Great for identifying bladder stones, pregnancy and some types of cancer.
Outside laboratories - We work with several external laboratories in order to provide complete diagnostic services for your pet. We can send out blood samples to check for many types of diseases not covered by our in-house tests, as well as tissue samples from tumor removals and biopsies to obtain a clear and complete diagnosis for your pet.
This vast on site laboratory allows us to aggressively treat ill and injured pets immediately in our hospital.
Annual examinations are recommended for younger pets (<7 years old) and semi-annual (every 6 months) examination for senior pets (>7 years old).
It is important to get prompt evaluation of your pet if he or she is feeling under the weather. The earlier we can catch a disease, the more often we can treat or manage it successfully!
Routine vaccinations & preventative care
- We individually tailor a vaccination protocol to fit your pet’s needs!
- Every 3 years for Rabies (or as required by your municipality) for adult dogs.
- Every 3 years for the FVRCP combination for adult cats, & DA2PP for adult dogs.
- Annual Bordetella vaccination is recommended for all dogs, it is usually required at any boarding or grooming facility.
- Annual Leptospirosis vaccination is recommended for adult dogs.
- Annual Rabies vaccine for cats.
- Annual feline leukemia vaccination is recommended for cats that may be exposed to other cats, & all cats that are allowed outdoors. Negative testing is required prior to starting this vaccine.
- Annual heartworm testing and year-round heartworm prevention for cats and dogs.
- Year-round flea and tick prevention for cats and dogs.
- Yearly wellness bloodwork to obtain baseline values for your pet and catch any changes or disease early. This is often the best way to detect disease before your pet is visibly sick
- Yearly fecal testing. Many pets harbor parasites without showing signs or symptoms. Our advanced centrifugation stool testing is one of the best ways to ensure your pet is parasite free.
Spay or neuter
- Spaying your female pet prior to her first heat cycle dramatically reduces the risk of her developing malignant mammary tumors, as well as eliminates the risk of pregnancy, uterine cancer, and ovarian cancer.
- Neutering your male pet before maturity reduces his desires to mark territory and act aggressively, as well as eliminating the risk of testicular cancer.
- Spaying and neutering your pet helps reduce the number of unwanted pets. There are a large number of homeless, but loveable, animals awaiting adoption at your local shelter. More importantly these procedures can improve the health and longevity of your pet
- Recent research has shown that the best time to spay or neuter your pet can vary depending on their breed, size and lifestyle. Your veterinarian will discuss with you the best time to have this surgery performed.
- All spay and neuter procedures are performed with the surgical laser. This technology reduces inflammation, bleeding, pain and the chance of infection.
- See our “Discounted Spay/Neuter” page for information on our program!
Maintaining your pet at a healthy weight
- This is the simplest way to help keep your pet healthy!
- Reduces the risk for many metabolic diseases, including diabetes.
- Minimizes the signs and slows the progression of joint disease like arthritis.
- Ask us how to identify a healthy weight for your pet! We can make recommendations and suggestions for how to help your pet regain, maintain, or drop down to a healthy weight.
- Permanent identification for your pet.
- A safe, simple procedure for implantation. It can be done at any visit.
- Allows identification of your pet, even if they lose their collar. Found pets can be scanned at any shelter or veterinary clinic.
- Maintaining your pet’s dental health dramatically improves their overall health. Dental disease can impact liver, kidney, and even heart health!
- Brushing at home is the easiest way to minimize plaque and tartar build-up between professional cleanings.
- Professional cleanings should be performed to keep your pet’s teeth clean and their breath fresh. These cleanings are needed to remove any tartar build-up and evaluate tooth health. How frequently your pet will need professional cleaning will vary on breed, age, size, overall health, genetics & what home care you use.
- See our “Dental Care” section above for more information!
We provide discounted spay or neuter surgery to our established clients, who have completed their pet’s puppy or kitten routine health protocol with us.
- This means the anesthesia, IV catheter and surgery charge ($84.25- $189.50) are discounted 30%, 60%, or 100%.
- You are responsible for some charges like bloodwork, pain management, microchip, medication and any additional services or testing provided. A personalized estimate is always available upon request.
- There is a limited time frame for this offer based your pet's breed, size, and lifestyle (usually one month, from 6-7 months of age). Dates will be provided to you by the veterinarian at your last vaccination visit.
We provide this service to benefit our clients & patients. We strongly believe that spaying and neutering is in the best interest of your pet's health, as well as the general pet population. We would like to play our part in encouraging responsible pet ownership, improving the long term health of pets, & reducing the number of unwanted or homeless animals!
We are now performing ovariectomies (OVE), instead of ovariohysterectomies (OVH) on our routine spays. Any female pet that has gone through a heat cycle or is over a year of age will still have the OVH procedure.
- This means we are removing only the ovaries (OVE). Previously, we would remove both the ovaries and the uterus (OVH).
- We have chosen to make this change as we feel it is the best, most advanced procedure for your pet. If you would like to discuss this further, please just ask! We are more than happy to explain!
- It is important to note this difference in your pet’s medical record, as any future veterinarian that sees your pet will need to know.
Surgical Care Services
All of our surgeries include continuous monitoring with EKG, pulse oximetry, blood pressure, temperature readings and an attentive technician for the safety of your pet! We strongly recommend pre-anesthetic bloodwork for the best care possible while your pet is under anesthesia. IV catheter placement is required for most procedures & is included in the cost of elective procedures like a spay or neuter. We are aggressive about treating your pet's pain, so they can remain comfortable during their surgery and recovery. We utilize local nerve blocks, pain medications, therapeutic laser & more to achieve the best pain control.
- Abdominal Exploratory
- Mass Removal
- Laser declaw
- Tumor removal
- And More
An additional modality to improve healing. Therapeutic laser works by stimulating tissue within the treated area to quickly reduce pain and swelling, and speed up the healing process.
- We use it immediately following surgeries to help alleviate pain before it starts!
- It can also be used to treat arthritis and acute injuries, as well as acral lick dermatitis and other inflammatory conditions
We are excited to be able to offer a number of chemotherapy options to pets that have been diagnosed with cancer. Not all chemotherapy options can be performed in the clinic but detailed information about what options your pet has and what we can offer you are provided during your consultation. Many pets can actually go into remission on these chemotherapy protocols, extending your pet's life!
Acupuncture & Alternative Therapies
We are now able to offer a number of new alternative treatment options including acupuncture, chiropractic care & herbal therapies. There is more & more evidence confirming the effectiveness of these therapies. Many pets with chronic conditions like arthritis, disk disease, cancer, & pain benefit from this medication free therapy. These therapies provide a treatment modality that focuses on improving the bodies own ability to heal.
