Before your pet undergoes any surgical procedure, a thorough examination takes place. This exam includes a pre-surgical blood screen, which, along with your pet's anesthetic history, breed, preexisting conditions, and age, will determine what best for your pets anesthesia protocol. Pain after surgery can slow healing and worsen diseases like arthritis. And, because our pets do not understand why they are experiencing pain, pain can cause behavioral issues and interfere with your pets daily routines. To minimize your pet's discomfort, we offer a pain protical after your pets surgical procedure.. The exact protocol is determined by your pets age, breed, medical history and surgical procedure.

Veterinary Care - Radiology and Internal Medicine
Our hospital is equipped with the most up to date digital x-ray and ultrasound. Ultrasound allows the veterinarian to visualize and examine many body organs and systems, including the heart, liver, gall bladder, spleen, kidney, pancreas and bladder. Many times both digital radiographs (X-rays) and ultrasound of your pet are recommended for best evaluation of your pet’s problem. Digital x-rays show the size, shape and position of the organs and the ultrasound allows your veterinarian to see the internal structure of the organs. Ultrasound is very non-invasive and well tolerated by most pets.
