- Small Animal Preventative Health Care
A comprehensive physical exam is the basic tool our doctors use to evaluate your cat's health status and to help you make informed decisions about the care of your special companion. This is where preventative care begins.
As a way to emphasize preventative health care, here are a two of the special programs and services that we offer:
- Kitten health care plans
-senior health care plans for cats
- Dental Care
Dental cleaning, or prophylaxis, is essential for maintaining your cat's healthy teeth and gums. As plaque and tartar form on teeth and under gums, bacteria collect and multiply. This creates a state of poor dental hygiene that causes foul mouth odor and is reason for concern. Eventually, gum disease will develop. More serious health problems, such as heart and kidney disease, may follow. Proper dental care has its rewards. Your cat will feel better and can live a longer healthier life.
- Soft Tissue and Orthopedic Surgical Services
Our doctors are all trained in soft tissue surgery such as spays, neuters and mass removals for your cats. In addition, our doctors are able to perform many other procedures including orthopedic fracture repairs, foreign body removals and bladder surgeries.
- Radiology and Ultrasound
Our digital radiology and ultrasound equipment and technical expertise enables us to take and interpret radiographs whenever and wherever needed. If further interpretation is required, the services of a veterinary radiology specialist are available.
Our endoscope, which is a long tubular fiber optic instrument with video capabilities, has become extremely useful in the practice of veterinary medicine. We can perform many minimally invasive techniques using this new tool. For example, the endoscope has allowed us to remove objects from a patient's stomach without having to surgically open the pet's abdomen. We are discovering many applications using this device and are often able to shorten the patient's time in the hospital because it is a less invasive procedure.
- In-House Diagnostic Laboratory
For quicker diagnostic results, we are equipped with an in-house laboratory. This allows us to perform many blood, urine and cytology tests and immediately have the results.
- Small Animal Reproductive Services
Our veterinarians are interested and well trained in all aspects of reproduction. They are experienced with artificial insemination using both fresh chilled and frozen semen. They also routinely perform surgical implantation techniques. For cats, our veterinarians are trained to perform emergency and scheduled caesarian sections.
- Chiropractic for Cats
Chiropractic care for cats has become an integral part of the holistic medical trend in both human and animal health care. Holistic therapies are designed to work with the natural ability of the body to maintain and heal itself. Feline chiropractic is a field of animal health care that focuses on the preservation and health of the neuro-musculo-skeletal system. It is not meant to replace traditional veterinary care, nor is it an alternative treatment. It is used in conjunction with excellent traditional veterinary medicine to provide a more comprehensive plan for your catís health care. Chiropratic care for cats is a gentle treatment that is used to relieve pain and increase the range of motion by reducing the stress in joints and muscles.
- Microchip Identification
Microchip ID can be used on all cats. It is safe and permanent. In a quick and easy procedure, a chip containing a personal 10-digit code with the owner's name, address and telephone number is inserted under the cat's skin between the shoulder blades. From this information the owners can be located and reunited with their pet.
