The most advanced procedures available for your pet.

The most advanced procedures available for your pet including laparoscopy and laser surgery.

Specialized services – less damage, less pain and faster recovery times:

Laser Spays and Neuters

We use a CO2 laser instead of a traditional scalpel for these procedures because the laser cauterizes blood vessels and nerve endings as it cuts, causing less bleeding and pain to your pet. The laser also allows us to have smaller incisions for both procedures.

Laser Declaw Surgery

When we perform a declaw surgery on a cat we ONLY use a CO2 laser and DO NOT use a scalpel blade to complete the amputation. The laser cauterizes blood vessels and nerve endings as it cuts and greatly reduces the pain and bleeding that used to be associated with traditional declaw procedures. See the surgery

Laparoscopic Spay

The laparoscope allows us to perform a spay in a minimally invasive manner, where instead of opening the entire abdominal cavity to remove the ovaries and uterus we can insert a camera and an instrument through two small incisions and remove only the ovaries. This allows us to handle the tissue much less which in turn causes less damage, less pain and faster recovery for your pet. See the surgery

K-Laser Treatment

The K-Laser is a low-level laser that is part of an emerging therapeutic approach that works on a cellular level, where the exposure of the laser actually causes improved wound healing, increased repair of soft tissue, bone, cartilage and nerve damage – providing relief for your pet’s acute or chronic pain as well as decreased inflammation.

Maintaining your pet’s health:

Annual exams

Annual exams are a great way for us to ensure that your pet stays healthy; it helps us catch some problems before they become major issues and also gives us baseline (healthy) information about your pet that we can compare against when illness strikes and as your pet ages. This information can be very helpful in diagnosis and treatment of any problems or disorders that may pop up.

Vaccinations

Dogs and cats need vaccines to stay healthy as well as to avoid certain diseases.

Dogs:

Rabies – We strongly recommend vaccination against the rabies virus as it is a virus that is easily transmitted from other infected animals and once a pet (or a human) is infected there is no treatment or cure.

DA2P/PV – This vaccine is one that we also highly recommend, it actually protects against 4 viruses in one shot! All of the viruses that this vaccine protects against (distemper virus, adenovirus, parainfluenza virus, and parvovirus) can have very serious effects and can be fatal even when treated.

Bordetella – This vaccine is one that we recommend if you have plans to take your dog into places where he or she may have contact with other dogs; places like off-leash parks, pet stores, groomers, and boarding facilities. This virus is easily transmitted between dogs and while treatable infection can be reduced with this vaccine. Most groomers and boarding kennels do require this vaccine be up to date prior to your appointment.

Cats:

Rabies – We strongly recommend vaccination against the rabies virus as it is a virus that is easily transmitted from other infected animals and once a pet (or a human) is infected there is no treatment or cure.

FVRCP – This is a vaccine that we highly recommend for all cats, it protects against infection by 3 different viruses. All of the viruses that this vaccine protects against (feline viral rhinotracheitis, calicivirus, and panleukopenia virus) are very severe and can have devastating effects on your cat that can be very difficult to treat.

Feline Leukemia – This vaccine is one that we recommend if your cat goes outside, or if you are planning on taking him or her to a boarding kennel or a groomer. This virus is very easily transmitted from one cat to another and can cause very serious problems if your cat does get infected.

Teeth Cleaning (Dental Prophylaxis)

We perform routine dental prophylaxis because dental disease starts early in dogs and cats and we can prevent many problems by keeping your pet’s mouth clean. Tartar and plaque buildup followed by gingivitis and periodontal disease are not only painful problems; they can lean to more serious conditions if left unchecked – such as arthritis and cardiovascular disease.

Other general services:

Our clinic also provides all routine services such as general and internal medicine, anesthetics, orthopaedic surgery, internal surgery, eye surgery, ear surgery, skin surgery, dentistry, x-rays, a complete in-house diagnostic lab, intensive care, vaccinations and preventative medicine, boarding, etc.

Boarding facility

Our boarding facility was designed with two things in mind; comfort for your pet, and peace of mind for you. Your dog will enjoy the bright and happy environment, heated floors, air-conditioning, an outdoor grass play/exercise area (or individual leashed walks if requested), your cat will enjoy a new play structure and focused attention in our designated cat area, and you will enjoy the peace of mind of knowing that your pet is always safe. We have designated staff for the boarding facility but your pet will also have access to our veterinary staff if need be. Your pet will also receive a free examination upon entry to ensure a safe environment for everyone. See pictures of our hospital and boarding facility. Call to book your next visit 780 465 9494.
