Laboratory Testing

Blood chemistry and electrolyte panels as well as complete blood counts can often be performed during your appointment. These tests are important in evaluating organ systems and blood cell responses. These panels are often performed prior to anesthesia/surgery, to monitor a chronic medical condition, or when your pet is acutely ill.

Digital Radiology

Radiographs (ďx-raysĒ) are often taken during your petís appointment to assess the medical and surgical needs of your pet. They are processed in a timely manner so that the veterinarians can discuss optimal treatment with you at the time of the appointment.

Ultrasonography

Ultrasound is another useful diagnostic tool to non-invasively assess the health of your animal.

Laser Surgery

It has been suggested that laser surgery results in less bleeding, less pain and faster recovery times.  We especially recommend this for our older feline patient declaws.

Advanced Dental Department

Dental care is an essential part of the overall health of your pet.  With a new dental x-ray unit, dental cart, and updated dental instruments, we are now able to perform oral surgery and periodontal therapy to the highest standard of care.  In order to maximize anesthetic safety, we recommend that all of our patients have a blood panel prior to undergoing this procedure.

While under anesthesia, your pet receives a complete oral exam. The teeth are probed, scaled and polished, a dental chart is completed, and x-rays are taken as needed. Once the x-rays are reviewed, oral surgery may be needed to remove abscessed, worn or broken teeth. Advanced cases needing endodontics such as root canals may need to be referred to a local specialist. Pain medication and antibiotics are given as necessary.

After periodontal therapy, routine brushing with a special toothbrush and toothpaste are important as part of a home oral health routine. Oral care food, treats, rinses and dental vaccines may also be helpful in maintaining a clean mouth. Continuing to care for the teeth at home means fewer anesthetic procedures, and a healthier mouth.

Anesthetic Monitoring

Any anesthetic and surgical procedure involves some level of risk. In order to monitor the patient as carefully as possible, we utilize a pulse oximeter that measures the blood oxygen level during surgery. We also carefully observe heart and respiratory rates as well as blood pressure during surgery.
