These packages include a comprehensive wellness exam, fecal exam, and senior blood work shipped overnight to Antech's laboratory. Our senior packages are the best way to find underlying disease in your pet; including thyroid disease, renal disease,and liver disease. Yearly comprehensive wellness exams are also essential in older pets. These exams enable our doctors to monitor any arthritic changes, lumps or bumps that may be found on your pet; as well as monitoring any weight gain or loss.

 

Preventive Dental Care

Periodontal Disease is the number one diagnosed problem in dogs and cats and will lead to more serious problems.Regular dental care is a must to keep your pet healthy. In order to avoid periodontal disease you should regularly brush your pet's teeth with dog or cat toothpaste. If toothpaste is difficult for you to apply we also offer other products such as; flushes, rinses, chews, and water additives. Regular dental exams and cleanings can help improve your pet's overall health.  

Radiographic Imaging (X-ray)

In 2008 Dr. Baltzley made the commitment to provide the best possible imaging.  A Direct Digital Radiologic suite was installed.  This reduces patient exposure and decreases the amount of time to get total quality images. In addition to the safety aspect, the digital image quality is state of the art and allows us to store, transmit and enhance the images using our computer network. This advanced technology will provide our doctors with a higher degree of diagnostics allowing for increased radiographic capabilities well beyond the traditional methods.

For example, if a male cat is brought in by an owner who claims that the cat is having difficulty urinating, the veterinarian might use ultrasound to check for an obstruction in the bladder or urethra. While examining these organs the veterinarian can also look at bladder thickness, and for bladder stones. Ultrasound can also be used to examine suspicious masses and other findings which occur during a manual exam. It can also be used in emergency settings to look for serious medical problems such as internal organs damaged in a collision.

 

Ultrasound can be used for a variety of purposes. A pregnant dog, for example, may be given several ultrasound examinations to confirm the pregnancy and assess the health of the developing puppies. Ultrasound can also be used to monitor the progress of liver and kidney disease, along with any treatment approaches, just as it is in humans.

 

Acupuncture

Acupuncture is used worldwide, either by itself or with Western medicine, to treat a wide variety of problems in many domestic and exotic animals. Acupuncture is the insertion of tiny needles into specific points on the body to promote health and prevent or treat disease. In Eastern medicine disease is considered an imbalance of the body’s energy.  Acupuncture serves to balance the body’s energy and help heal disease.  In Western Medicine acupuncture can improve many physiological changes such as an increase in blood circulation, stimulation of nerves, relief of muscle spasms and release of hormones like endorphins for pain relief and cortisol for anti-inflammation. 

Acupuncture can be an excellent therapy for chronic conditions that are managed rather than completely cured with western medicine.  This can include many musculoskeletal problems such as arthritis, disc disease, seizures, gastrointestinal disorders such as vomiting, diarrhea and constipation, chronic respiratory problems such as asthma, and skin problems, kidney disease and some urinary tract disorders. 

A pet may feel a slight sensation like a tingle with the needle but most relax during a session. Side effects of acupuncture are rare, but they do exist. A pet’s condition may seem worse for up to 48 hours after a treatment. Other animals may become sleepy or lethargic for 24 hours after acupuncture. These effects are an indication that some physiological changes are occurring, and they are generally followed by an improvement in the pet’s condition. Pets that are pregnant, have a fracture, open wound or infectious disease are not considered good candidates for acupuncture.

The length and frequency of acupuncture treatments depends on the condition of the patient and the method of stimulation that is used by the veterinary acupuncturist. Stimulation of an individual acupuncture point may take as little as 10 seconds or as much as 30 minutes. Treatment generally last from 20 to 60 minutes.  A simple acute problem, such as a sprain, may require only one treatment, whereas more severe or chronic ailments may need several treatments.  Some degenerative conditions may require long-term monthly care.

When multiple treatments are necessary, they usually begin intensively and are tapered to maximum efficiency. Patients often start with 1-3 treatments per week for 4–6 weeks. Some improvement is usually seen within the first three treatments. Once a maximum positive response is achieved (usually after 4-8 treatments), treatments are tapered off so that the greatest amount of symptom free time elapses between them. Many animals with chronic conditions can taper off to 2-4 treatments per year.

 

Radiosurgery

This unit is used during many surgical procedures.  It allows the surgeon to cut and coagulate (stop bleeding), using radio-waves. This state-of-the art equipment works with a radiofrequency tip that actually becomes energized but does not become hot. Because it functions this way, there is no risk of shock or electrical burns as seen with conventional electrocautery. Radiowave surgery offers many benefits such as; decreased blood loss, reduced risk of infection, minimized tissue destruction, and quicker recovery time. Radiosurgery can be employed for spay/neuter, tumor removal, mastectomy, skin tags and biopsy procedures. Ask the doctor's and staff about this new technique.

Boarding & Bathing Services

We offer short-term boarding and bathing services for our existing clients. We do require all patients to be current on vaccinations and free of external parasites in order to board with us. We also offer exit boarding baths, special dips, and bath's with flea prevention, prices vary upon weight. Please call our client service representatives for pricing.

Microchip

A lost pet can weigh heavily on a pet owner.  Improve the chances of a happy reunion with a microchip that is implanted under the skin and provides a way of permanent identification.   Ask our client service staff about the many happy endings associated with pet returned because of these simple implants.
