Periodontal disease is treatable and preventable. If left unaddressed, it can lead to other health issues, pain, and shortened lifespan. We have the skill and equipment to resolve most dental diseases. We utilize digital dental radiography.
“Age is not a disease,” is how the saying goes. As our pets age, degenerative changes will occur that may interfere with their quality of life. Many may be improved with lifestyle changes, and addition of supplements and/or medication. We encourage you to seek quality, as well as longevity in your pet’s life. Do not neglect these changes.
On site diagnostic ability allows early diagnosis and immediate treatment for specific disease.
Veterinary medicine has progressed along with human medicine in its technical sophistication. There are almost as many veterinary specialists as there are in the human medical field. We feel many treatments should be handled by the best in the field, and will find the specialist necessary to treat your pet’s needs if we are unable to accomplish that. This may be referral for procedures as MRIs, endoscopy, orthopedic surgery, skin allergy testing, chemotherapy, and radioactive Iodine treatment for hyperthyroidism.
Cancer diagnosis is based on finding the location of cancer growth, and identification of the cancer cell via microscopic examination. This entails a thorough physical exam, and, sometimes, visual diagnostic aids as radiology and/or ultrasonography. Additional tests as MRI or CT Scan may also be necessary in some instances. A sample via fine needle aspirate or biopsy can then be taken to evaluate cell type. Treatment and prognosis is determined on an individual basis.
We utilize digital radiography.
We use ResQ Chip, an ISO compatible microchip necessary for identification on health certificates for travel to most countries.
