Diagnostic and Therapeutic Services: Our hospital is equipped to provide diagnostic and therapeutic services to care for your pets' complete health care needs.
Surgical Services: Our state-of-the-art surgical suite provides for the performance of a wide variety of routine surgical procedures. We can also provide you with a referral to a nearby surgical specialist for complicated surgical procedures.
Anesthesia: We utilize the safest available anesthetics and tailor each anesthetic protocol to the individual patient in an effort to provide that extra margin of safety. This becomes especially important for our older and high risk patients. Using the most modern equipment, the patient's vital signs are monitored during all anesthetic procedures. We also recommend performing a blood profile prior to all anesthetic procedures to allow us to take extra precautions during and after the procedure.
Radiology Services: Our on-site, digital X-ray equipment provides high quality radiographs to aid in the diagnosis of many disorders. We also have access to radiology specialists, Dr. Jeff Siems, for consultations on all radiographs taken, and to provide ultrasound technology.
Electrocardiography Services: We provide ECG services on-site as well as consultations with cardiology specialists.
Laboratory: Our in-house laboratory facilities provide for serum chemistry, hematology, serology, urinalysis and parasite testing. We also utilize commercial veterinary laboratories for specialized diagnostics and consultations.
Pharmacy: We maintain a complete inventory of pharmaceuticals, vitamins, shampoos, and flea and tick preventatives to meet the needs of your pet. We ask that you allow 2 days for refill requests. This allows us to make additional orders if necessary. You can also order refills through our on-line pharmacy.
Dentistry: Our dental services include teeth cleaning, polishing, fluoride treatments, sealing, tooth extractions, digital dental radiography, and oral surgery.
Dietary Counseling: We will provide guidance regarding your pet's nutritional needs for each life stage, including dietary requirements for growth, weight maintenance or reduction, and performance. We can also provide you with prescription diets designed to aid in the treatment of specific disorders. Please check with one of our receptionists to see if your prescription diet is readily available. In some cases it may take up to a week to make a special order for your pet's needs.
Behavioral Counseling: We can provide advice regarding general obedience, and the correction of problems such as excessive barking, chewing, spraying, scratching, digging, house soiling and aggression. We are also lucky to be able to refer difficult behavioral cases to certified trainers at Diamonds in the Ruff, Northern Tails Dog Training, and Paw and Order. In some cases we will refer to a local animal behaviorist Dr. Patricia Simonet.
Boarding: In an effort to focus our attention on patient care, we do not offer boarding on site. If you are searching for a reputable and trustworthy boarding facility we recommend Play n Stay located on the northside at Rosewood and Wall street (325-0581).
Bathing: Therapeutic bathing services are available. If your pet needs general grooming and bathing we recommend Sylvano's Grooming at 315-7808 or The Yuppy Puppy at 467-8221, both are located on the northside.
Emergency Care: Please call the Pet Emergency Clinic at 326-6670 for after-hour emergencies.
