Because of the shorter lifespan of our pets, we stress the importance of an annual physical examination. Thorough check-ups and preventive care can help alleviate serious health problems. We strive to provide all necessary services for each case while keeping costs affordable. Here are some of the things we do:
Laboratory Services: Our hospital is equipped to provide diagnostic services for your pets' complete health care needs. Many tests are run here in our laboratory. We have a serum chemistry analyzer that can produce results in only 15 minutes. We have next-day results on most other tests from Marshfield Laboratories. Some tests, such as cultures and biopsies, take a few days longer.
Surgical Services: Our state-of-the-art surgical suite provides for the performance of a wide variety of surgical procedures. A board-certified surgeon visits here as needed for more difficult cases or ones that need specialized equipment.
Anesthesia: We utilize the safest available anesthetics to provide an extra margin of safety, especially for our older or high-risk patients. We require pre-anesthetic bloodwork before all anesthesias.We use intravenous fluids to support blood pressure and electrolyte balance during all general anesthesia. We use a state-of-the-art anesthesia monitor to monitor heart rate, respiratory rate, electrocardiogram, pulse oximetry, capnography, and blood pressure.
Internal medicine consults: We offer in-hospital referrals to an internal medicine specialist who performs ultrasounds and echocardiograms and helps us with the diagnosis of more complicated cases.
Radiology Services: Our on-site, modern X-ray equipment provides high quality radiographs to aid in the quick diagnosis of many disorders. We recommend dental X-rays on many of our dental procedures.
Dentistry: Our dental services include teeth cleaning and polishing, dental X-rays, tooth extractions and minor oral surgery. We consider this one of the most important services we offer and we have made extra efforts to keep this affordable.
Permanent identification: We offer HOME AGAIN microchip identification.
Pharmacy: We maintain a complete inventory of pharmaceuticals, vitamins, shampoos, flea and tick control products and heartworm preventatives to meet the needs of your pet. We also carry a full line of prescription diets.
Individualized Flea Control Programs: We develop programs for the specific needs of your pet and your own particular environmental situation. We will review with you the best ways to control fleas in your house, in your yard and on your pet.
