We are now able to offer digital radiographs.
Radiographs are very useful tools for looking at problems in your pets. They are used to diagnose fractures, any other bony problems, heart and lung problems and foreign bodies. They allow us to examine the shape and size of most of the internal organs. X-rays take about 30 minutes and can aide in a diagnosis.
The microchip is a device used for permanent identification for your pet. It is about the size of a grain of rice and is placed under the skin between the shoulder blades. All veterinary clinics and animal shelters have universal scanners that are able to read the chip’s number. The shelter or clinics can then call the microchip company and obtain your information and contact you to return your pet. It is still important your pet has a proper collar tag identifying you as their owner. If your animal is having a procedure requiring anesthesia we recommend micro chipping during that procedure.
We provide all types of soft tissue procedures. We routinely perform ovario-hysterectomy (spays), castrations (neuters), mass removals, abdominal procedures, etc. We also repair lacerations & abscesses.We DO NOT perform feline de-claws. If your pet requires surgery the doctors will thoroughly explain the surgery and all options available. We will also provide an itemized estimate for you review and answer any questions you may have regarding your pets’s procedure. If a more specialized surgery, we work closely with a mobile specialist that will meet you in our clinic for a consult and/or surgery.
Each patient is evaluated for anesthetic risks prior to surgery. This will be done with a routine pre-surgical blood test. The anesthetics used are specified to each patient and provides the safest procedure, especially for our older or high risk patients. The patients are monitored during the surgery and recovery. We take great care to make sure that your beloved pet is treated as if it was our own.
We see emergencies during regular business hour.
