To aid in accurately diagnosing ailments, underlying conditions, and pregnancy, we offer full-service laboratory, imaging, and ultrasound diagnostics.
GENERAL WELLNESS AND PREVENTATIVE CARE
Like humans, dental care and routine annual cleaning are recommended to support the health of your pet. Dental radiographs are integral to determining the health of each tooth and full mouth x-rays are included in our Comprehensive Oral Health Assessment and Treatment (COHAT) plans.
Soft tissue surgery involves procedures not related to bones, joints, muscles or the neurologic system and ranges from minimally invasive to invasive procedures. We perform a wide range of procedures to address issues such as mass removals, internal bleeding, intestinal obstructions, bloat, burn, bite wounds and more.
Orthopedic procedures address issues and disease involving bones, joints, ligaments, muscles, and tendons. Common procedures are performed to treat abnormalities such as elbow joint disease, hip dysplasia, patellar luxation, trauma injuries and other issues such as congenital abnormalities. In consultation we will be able to determine the best course of treatment and will work with you to develop a personalized plan to provide the best possible outcome and quality of life for your pet.
Did you know, according to the American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA), the population of dogs and cats in the United States still exceeds the capacity of our society to care and provide homes for them as companion animals. Unfortunately, this has resulted in many pets being abandoned to roam as strays or being placed in shelters where they are often euthanized if not rehomed quickly. A management strategy to mitigate this problem includes spay and neuter.
If you are debating whether to schedule surgery for your pet, please review below for answers to any questions/concerns you may have, but please do not hesitate to contact us should you have additional questions.
In general, we recommend between 4-6 months of age for small dogs and cats, and between 6-12 months for large breed dogs.
Notwithstanding the contribution you will make to reducing pet overpopulation, there are many positives that come with completing this procedure. For females, the elimination of ‘messy’ heat cycles, no risk of unwanted pregnancies, preventing pyometra; an infection of the uterus that often requires expensive emergency surgery, and mammary cancer. For males, research has shown that intact males are prone to aggressive tendencies and the inability to deescalate quickly should they get into a fight or bite situation, elimination of undesirable and embarrassing behaviors, and a decreased risk of developing prostate and/or elimination of testicular cancer.
Spaying, also called an ovariohysterectomy, is a surgical procedure performed by a veterinarian that removes both female ovaries and uterus. Castration (neuter) removes both testicles in the male. Your pet will be placed under general anesthesia and monitored throughout by a dedicated team consisting of highly trained, experienced and licensed nurses. During the procedure, you pet’s safety and comfort are our highest priority, all pets will receive IV fluids to maintain blood pressure and kidney perfusion, and advanced pain management during and after procedure and throughout their recovery when at home.
SPAY AND NEUTER
Your pet will be fully assessed prior to surgery to minimize risk during the procedure and when in recovery. Assessment includes a comprehensive exam and bloodwork.
Depending on the procedure, your pet will be administered either a local or general anesthesia and monitored actively and electronically throughout to assess all parameters (EKG, pulse oximeter, blood pressure, temperature, end tidal CO2) by a dedicated team consisting of highly trained, experienced, and licensed nurses. During the procedure, you pet’s safety and comfort are our highest priority, all pets will receive IV fluids to maintain blood pressure and kidney perfusion, and advanced pain management during and after procedure and throughout their recovery when at home.
