Surgery

All pets receive a pre-surgical examination. During this exam, the veterinarian will be performing a thorough check over and listening to the heart and lungs. Sometimes this exam, along with corresponding lab work, may result in intravenous fluids during the surgical procedure. Blood work is always recommended prior to any procedure involving anesthesia. 100 percent of our surgeries are monitored continuously by our veterinary team.

Examples of Soft Tissue Surgeries performed by our veterinarians: Spay, Neutering, Declaws, Hematomas, Mass/Tumor Removals, Laceration Repairs, Exploratory, Biopsies, Hernia Repairs. Examples of Orthopedic Surgeries: Cranial Cruciate Ligament Repair, Medial Luxating Patella Repair, Fracture Repair.

Dentistry

Much like people, dogs and cats need their teeth checked yearly. On average a dog has 42 permanent teeth and a cat has 30. A thorough exam performed by a veterinarian will be able to assess plaque, tartar, gingivitis, and/or periodontal disease in your pet’s mouth. Periodontal disease occurs when there is bacteria present in the plaque. This bacteria can easily be transferred throughout your pet’s entire body. The transferring of bacteria can lead to kidney, liver, and even heart disease. Some breeds specific dogs require more frequent cleanings than others.

Dental cleanings are day procedures, but do require anesthesia. A chemistry panel is always recommended when a pet will be receiving anesthesia. While under anesthesia, heart rate monitoring is continuous. Our ultrasonic dental equipment will scale your pet’s teeth and gum line. Then a good polish follows. After the procedure is complete, some pets may receive antibiotics and pain medication.

Diagnostics

Our clinic is fully equipped with an in-house laboratory. This allows for quick and efficient lab results. Our IDEXX machines are able to run full chemistry, hematology, and urine tests.

Digital Radiology / Ultrasound
