Comprehensive physical examinations are recommended for all pets at least once a year. Remember, our pets age much faster than we do, so routine examinations are vital and allow us to find problems sooner.
We will make personalized recommendations for your pet based on their physical examination and individual risk factors, as well as diseases common in our area.
This care can include:
- Internal parasite screening (stool testing) and prevention
- Preventive screening lab work (annual blood and urine testing)
- Flea and tick prevention
- Heartworm prevention
- Nutrition and dietary counseling
- Behavior consultations
On site laboratory services are available for common blood, urine, and stool tests, with many additional tests completed though our off site reference laboratory.
Digital radiography can be completed in the office, with consultations available from a board certified veterinary radiologist.
Other available services include electrocardiography and oscillometric or doppler blood pressure.
Anesthesia and Surgery
All pets undergoing an anesthetic procedure receive a comprehensive physical examination and bloodwork prior to the procedure to asses overall health and internal organ function.
We use human grade anesthesia and each pet’s anesthetic drugs are tailored to the individual pet and include injectable and inhalant anesthesia.
A tube is placed directly into the trachea in order to administer oxygen and the anesthetic gas directly to the lungs.
Every pet is monitored closely by a trained veterinary technician using modern monitoring equipment that tracks heart rate, heart rhythm, blood pressure, oxygenation, and temperature.
Our doctors perform general soft tissue surgery, spays, and neuters.
All surgical patients receive appropriate multi-modal pain management before, during, and after surgery to minimize discomfort and speed recovery time.
If appropriate for your pet, therapeutic laser treatments are also available.
Prophylactic dental cleanings are performed under general anesthesia and may be recommended annually for some pets.
Digital dental radiography is available to assess tooth health below the gum line.
Surgical dental extractions can be performed as indicated by dental radiographs and a thorough oral exam completed under anesthesia.
Both domestic and international health certificates are available.
For international health certificates call in advance so that the doctor may research the requirements for your destination country.
