Because of the shorter lifespan of our pets, we stress the importance of an annual physical examination. Thorough check-ups and preventive care can help alleviate serious health problems. We offer a wide range of veterinary services to keep your companions feeling their best:
Diagnostic and Therapeutic Services: Our hospital is equipped to provide diagnostic and therapeutic services to care for your pet's complete health care needs.
Surgical Services: Our state-of-the-art surgical suite provides for the performance of a wide variety of surgical procedures. Dr. Cooley, a residency trained veterinary surgical specialist performs specialty surgeries at our office. Cruciate ligament repair can be accomplished by the TTA surgery performed by Dr. Cooley or a Lateral Suture repair by Dr. Keck
Anesthesia: We utilize the safest available anesthetics to provide an extra margin of safety, especially for our older or high-risk patients. Using the most modern equipment, the patient's vital signs are monitored during all anesthetic procedures.
Internal medicine consults: We offer in-hospital referrals to a Cardiologist who performs ultrasounds, ECGs and helps us with the diagnosis of more complicated cases.
Radiology Services: Our on-site, modern X-ray equipment provides high quality radiographs to aid in the quick diagnosis of many disorders. Our new DR digital x-ray unit provides a clearer picture not seen with traditional x-ray film. This enables us to provide more accurate diagnosis then ever before.
Electrocardiography Services: We provide ECG services on-site as well as consultations with cardiology specialists.
Dentistry: Our dental services include teeth cleaning, tooth surgical extractions and full mouth dental x-rays.
Radioactive Iodine Therapy (I-131) for Feline Hyperthyroidism: Most cats (>95%) are cured of the disease with one treatment! An injection of radioactive iodine is given under your cat's skin, absorbed into the body and concentrated in the thyroid gland. The cat remains in an isolated room in the hospital for at least 4 days until the radiation level is low enough to go home.
Laboratory: Our in-house laboratory facilities provide for serum chemistry, hematology, serology, urinalysis and parasite testing. We also utilize commercial veterinary laboratories for specialized diagnostics and consultations.
Permanent identification: We offer microchip implantation and microchip identification.
Pharmacy: We maintain a complete inventory of pharmaceuticals, vitamins, shampoos, flea and tick control products and heartworm preventatives to meet the needs of your pet. We also carry a full line of prescription diets.
Flea Control Programs: We develop programs for the specific needs of your pet and your own particular environmental situation. We will review with you the best ways to control fleas in your house, in your yard and on your pet.
Dietary Counseling: We will provide guidance regarding your pet's nutritional needs for each life stage, including dietary requirements for growth, weight maintenance and performance.
Behavioral Counseling: We can provide advice regarding the correction of problems such as excessive barking, chewing, spraying, scratching, digging, house soiling and aggression.
Emergency Care: Please call our main telephone number for instructions for after-hour emergencies. We refer after hours emergencies to a fully staffed emergency clinic, such as PETS in Lancaster, Shores in Harrisburg, or the Berks Animal Emergency Center.
