We use multimodal pain management for all animals undergoing procedures that may cause pain (surgery, dentistry, etc…). This may involve using a combination of drugs from different classes before, during, and after the procedure. These may include opiates, NSAIDs, local anesthetics, epidurals, etc…
We offer a variety of soft tissue and orthopedic surgeries for domestic and exotic pets. Some of the routine procedures we offer include spays, neuters, and growth removals. We also offer more complicated surgeries including prophylactic gastropexy (tacking down the stomach in at risk breeds to prevent bloat), exploratory laparotomy (to remove gastointestinal foreign bodies, remove or biopsy masses, etc…), and cranial cruciate ligament repair. Most of the surgeries are performed by our experienced doctors, or by mobile board certified surgeons.
We provide different levels of anesthesia ranging from mild sedation to general anesthesia for domestic and exotic pets. All animals are examined by a doctor prior to any anesthetic procedures, and we customize the anesthetic protocol for each patient for optimal safety and efficacy. Patients are monitored closely under anesthesia to maintain proper oxygenation, heart rate, and blood pressure. All animals undergoing general anesthesia receive fluid therapy mainly through IV catheters.
We have digital radiology to obtain full body and dental radiographs (x-rays). All radiographs are reviewed by board certified radiologists who also provide mobile ultrasound services at our hospital. We also offer PennHIP and OFA certification.
We offer medical and surgical oncology for a variety of cancers. We use the Phaseal closed system transfer device to administer chemotherapy drugs to maximize safety to our staff and pets.
