EXAMINATION

EXAMINATION

From annual check ups to figuring out why your dog isn’t eating, we’ve got you covered. We will perform a comprehensive head to toe examination including assessments of the teeth, eyes, ears, skin, heart, lungs, thorough palpation of the abdomen, gait, joints and nervous system. Come prepared with any questions you might have about your pets’ health! We’re here for advice on any and all pet health matters.

SURGERY

SURGERY

A breadth of surgery is offered on site from routing spaying and neutering to tumour removals, bladder stone removals and whatever-your-pet-ate removals. Orthopedic surgeries are executed at the hospital by a board certified specialist surgeon. Any necessary biopsy samples are analyzed by a veterinary pathologist, allowing for precision guided post-surgical treatments. We also ensure all our patients are provided ample pain medication for their post-operative aches and pains.

DIAGNOSTIC

DIAGNOSTIC

Through our partnership with IDEXX reference laboratories we are able to diagnose a wide variety of problems including hyperthyroidism, diabetes, Cushing’s, cardiac disease and pancreatitis. If we need results quickly our on-site blood machines can provide results in under 10 minutes!  Advanced fecal testing that looks for chemical signatures of parasites is performed on all fecal samples to allow for early detection of issues.

RADIOLOGY

RADIOLOGY

Brand new digital radiography machines provide crystal clear diagnostic images within seconds. Our cloud based system allows us and our clients to access their pets images from the comfort of their own home. X-ray images are analyzed and reviewed with clients during their examination appointments, allowing for rapid diagnosis of a multitude of problems.  This means answers and treatment for your pets problems can be found within minutes.

DENTISTRY

DENTISTRY

As the gateway to the rest of the body, optimal dental health can improve an animals systemic health, including maintaining the function of vital organs such as the heart, liver and kidneys. Extensive dental cleanings will leave your pets mouth looking good as new. State-of-the-art dental radiographs allow us to identify painful teeth that your pet can’t tell you about. Our veterinarians are skilled in dental extraction techniques to provide relief from the pain of diseased teeth.

VACCINATION

VACCINATION

We offer a wide variety of vaccinations to protect your dogs and cats from serious communicable diseases. We are able to recommend specific vaccinations for your pet based on their lifestyle and the environments they are being exposed to. To prevent excessive vaccination we offer triannual vaccines for some diseases and antibody titre testing to determine if vaccines are necessary at your annual appointments.

HOSPITALISATION

HOSPITALISATION

For the unfortunate times when your pet requires more prolonged and extensive care, we are able to provide overnight hospitalization and treatment. Intravenous fluid therapy is used to combat severe dehydration secondary to kidney disease, vomiting, diarrhea and other problems. Intravenous injectable medications can be used to fight off life threatening infections and administer treatments when oral medications are insufficient.

ACUPUNCTURE

ACUPUNCTURE

If your pet is suffering from chronic medical conditions, acupuncture can often be an effective treatment medium to train the body how to heal itself. Ideal candidates for acupuncture include pets suffering from arthritis, orthopedic problems and neurologic issues. For certain conditions such as intervertebral disc disease and wobbler’s syndrome, studies have shown acupuncture alone to be more efficacious than commonly recommended surgeries.

BOARDING

BOARDING

Going away for the long weekend? We can help out by looking after your pets. When possible we like to have our boarding dogs hang out with us during the day as we work. Everyone seems to mutually enjoy the company! If your pet has health concerns or requires ongoing medication our professionally trained staff will provide medical treatments and veterinarian oversight throughout the length of their stay.

DERMATOLOGY

DERMATOLOGY

Your pet's skin is something you see all the time, so it really shows when something is off. Whether it’s itchiness, hairloss or a strange looking bump, we can help. We are able to perform a wide range of skin tests for your itchy friend including allergy blood testing. If your pet has an itch that they just can’t seem to scratch, we can definitely help. Found a weird lump?  We can diagnose that as well with a quick near painless procedure called a fine needle aspirate.

ULTRASOUND

ULTRASOUND

When we need to see inside an organ to know how it’s working, ultrasound is our best option.  Echocardiograms are performed to precisely decipher the cause of a pets' heart murmur and determine the optimal course of treatment. Abdominal ultrasounds can detect early cancers and other life threatening illnesses. An on-call professional ultrasound technician is available for all your ultrasound needs and assessment of any images is done by a board certified veterinary radiologist.

NUTRITION

NUTRITION

Everything your pet eats has an effect on their body. Veterinary formulated foods are recommended for specific health conditions from bladder stones to arthritis. We also offer a selection of raw food diets for pets who benefit from the added digestibility of an unprocessed diet. When premade diets are not sufficient for your pets health condition, a unique homemade diet can be formulated. Overweight pets can get a weight loss plan with special diets and strict calorie control for impressive results.
