Our team of doctors, certified veterinary technicians, and caregivers are prepared to meet all of the needs of your family-member pet. Whether your companion encounters a sudden illness or has a chronic disease, we are ready to perform the necessary diagnostics and make a complete treatment plan. Most importantly we are dedicated to partnering with you to get your pet back to his or her best. Our hospital has thorough diagnostic capabilities and we partner with board-certified specialists to provide full-spectrum care and quick results.
Our in-house laboratory is fully equipped to provide us with rapid results. Some features include: CBC (Complete Blood Count), blood chemistry (internal organ function), electrolytes (acid/base and hormonal issues), feline leukemia virus testing, feline immunodeficiency virus (FIV) testing, heartworm testing, ehrlichia testing (tick transmitted diseases), Borrelia Burgdorferi (lyme disease) testing, parvo virus testing, microscopic examination for parasites, complete urinalysis, and cytological examination (infections and parasites).
ECG is frequently used to evaluate the electrical conduction through the heart. It is used as a screening test in at risk breeds and senior patients as well as to evaluate abnormalities found during the physical exam such as abnormal rhythms and rates. ECG results are electronically transmitted to then interpreted by a board-certified Cardiologist to allow for in-house consultation.
Blood pressure measurements provide important information to assist in the diagnosis and treatment of many conditions that affect the heart, kidneys, central nervous system and the endocrine system.
Radiograph or x-rays are performed onsite with high quality digital equipment and experienced certified veterinary technicians and assistants. Contrast imaging is available if needed. Using a secure site, radiographs are transmitted to board-certified Radiologists who provide rapid interpretation, diagnosis, and treatment options.
Digital dental radiographs or x-rays are used to provide detailed images of the oral cavity. They are an essential part of our dentistry care, allowing for a rapid view of the patients mouth while minimizing anesthesia time. This equipment is also very useful in creating x-rays of some of our smaller special species patients like birds and rodents.
Ultrasonography is a noninvasive diagnostic technique that directs sound waves through a region of the body and measures the rate at which they return. This information is transformed into a two dimensional picture. Internal organs such as the liver, spleen, bladder, kidneys, intestines and heart can be evaluated. We also utilize the ultrasound machine to help us guide needles into specific organs to retrieve diagnostic cell samples. Once again, all of the ultrasound images are digitally transmitted to and intrepreted by board-certified Radiologists.
Intensive Care and Hospitalization
Our ICU (intensive care unit) provides a separate, quiet, and comfortable area that is within clear view of the doctors and certified veterinary technicians in our treatment area. All efforts are made to make your companion as comfortable as possible during the recovery process. Our ICU is equipped with secure kennels, heating pads, IV fluid pumps, incubators, and comfortable bedding.
