Having a pet hospitalized for nursing care is a stressful experience for both the patient and their owners. Our hospital is fortunate to have excellent veterinary technicians and assistants to allow patients to be monitored and kept comfortable in a state of the art facility. Fluid therapy, medication(s) and other nursing care are offered overnight by trained professionals so that patients are always attended.
Our veterinary hospital offers several areas of orthopedic surgery that can help pets with complex orthopedic problems. Anterior cruciate ligament damage (ACL), fracture repair and medial patellar luxation are a few of the conditions that can be successfully treated. Veterinarians and technicians are trained to manage these difficult cases which frequently require advanced equipment and specialized care.
Laparoscopic surgery allows us to perform many abdominal procedures without the traditional large surgical incision. Routine spays, gastropexy (stomach tack) biopsies and exploratory surgery can frequently be achieved without the pain and recovery time normally associated with traditional surgery. Patients recover more quickly and with less pain and fewer incisional complications.
Endoscopic equipment provides our veterinarians with the ability to explore the gastrointestinal tract with a scope and visualize the surrounding tissues in a minimally invasive way. This allows the veterinarian to assess potential foreign bodies or obtain biopsies to aid in the diagnosis of inflammatory bowel disease or neoplasia (cancer).
Regenerative medicine is a term that refers to a group of therapies targeted at arthritis, wound healing and neurologic disease. The therapies include injection of stem cells and platelet rich plasma gathered from the actual patient on the day of the treatment. These advanced technologies hold great promise for the treating of disease with the patient’s own cells. Specifically, regenerative medicine can be used to treat arthritis, chronic “non-healing” wounds and degenerative myelopathy.
X-Ray & Ultrasound
Our hospital is equipped with x-ray and diagnostic ultrasound equipment. This technology allows us to view internal organs without surgery. This often aids in diagnosis and treatment with a minimum of patient discomfort.
Our laboratory is equipped with excellent staff and equipment to provide rapid and accurate results. In acute illness or trauma, rapid turn around time of lab results is essential for successful recovery.
