Care with a Loving Touch

Preventive Medicine

Preventive medicine, including regular hands-on examinations is the best way to ensure your pet’s health. Every pet should be examined at least once yearly until age seven and then twice yearly thereafter—remember they are aging faster than the years assigned, with every six months being equivalent to 2-3 years of aging. Your veterinarian will help to tailor your pet’s care based on age, lifestyle, risks and more. Vaccinations are an important part of preventive care—not every pet will need every vaccination, but all pets need some protective vaccinations based on their individual needs and risks.

Emergency Medicine

Emergencies happen – we have no way to predict or prevent, but are available to treat and support during our business hours. Our skilled staff, in-house laboratory and digital x-ray capabilities, mean that we can quickly evaluate your pet and get them started with appropriate care. Afterhours, we refer to area veterinary emergency facilities.

Puppy & Kitten Care

A good start in life is essential to a lifetime of good health. When you add that wonderful new bundle of fur love, we’ll help to make sure that the new kitten or puppy is set up for proper vaccinations and preventive care. We’ll make sure you have the essentials for good nutrition, home care and training as well.

Senior Care

Age is not a disease, but aging does cause many changes. Senior pets (over age 7 for most pets) need to have regular exams at least twice yearly and regular screening diagnostics to evaluate major organs such as the kidneys or liver for changes. We want to ensure that as owner and veterinarian we are working together to maintain a healthy, comfortable and as long as possible life span for each pet.

Dentistry

Proper dental and oral care, both professional veterinary and at home, can truly extend a pet’s life—and make sure that there is no unpleasant cat or dog breath. We’ll guide you in the how’s and what to use for home dental care as well as educating you on professional veterinary dental cleaning, assessment and treatment for your pet’s mouth. Our digital dental x-ray system allows us to evaluate below the gum line to make the best recommendations for your pet.

Surgery

We perform routine and non-routine soft tissue surgeries such as spay, neuter, cystotomy, mass removals and more. For specialty procedures and orthopedic procedures, we can coordinate with an experienced surgeon to come to our hospital to perform or refer your pet to one of the area’s many experts.

Radiology

Radiology includes x-rays and ultrasounds. Our digital x-ray system means that we can take almost instantaneous high resolution images of a pet’s chest, abdomen or limbs. Ultrasound is a non-invasive technology that allows us to see organs in great detail and can be used to identify bladder stones, tumors and abnormal organ structure. We work closely with a board-certified radiologist to coordinate our ultrasounds and also use a rapid telemedicine service to evaluate x-rays when needed.

Cardiology Services

The ticker sometimes needs to special care. We use the mobile services of “Rocky Mountain Veterinary Cardiology to come to the hospital when needed for patients for a cardiac evaluation, echocardiograms and more.

Laser Treatment

Laser treatment offers a modality of complementary medicine that can both have significant positive effects for a patient. Laser is a form of photo-therapy using a hand-held device. Laser has great anti-inflammatory and anti-pain effects, can speed healing and reduce scarring. It is used to treat wounds, ear infections, arthritic pain, skin issues and more. Ask today if this service is appropriate for your pet.

Fear-Free Care

Do you get a little stressed and worried at the doctor’s office? Well, our pets certainly do and we are constantly working on handling ideas and other strategies to make every cat’s and dog’s visit less stressful. We may not be able to calm every fractious pet, but we can help make all visits easier for pets and owners. Ask today what we can do to help you with your pet’s visits. This article offers a good place to start.

Pet Massage Therapy

Much like it does for humans, massage therapy has extensive physical and emotional benefits for animals. It is not simply a way to “pamper” your pet, but instead, it is a way to improve your pet’s overall health and emotional well-being. Pet massage may be especially beneficial by easing pain in animals suffering from arthritis, muscle spams and old injuries. It also aids in speeding up recovery time after a surgery or injury and can reduce anxiety in pets effected by emotional trauma. Our own staff member, Mara Tingley, is a Nationally Board-Certified Massage Therapist and Certified Veterinary Technician. For more information, visit Mara’s website.

Bringing your pet to our hospital?

Dogs must be on a leash, in a carrier or, if small, carried, when arriving to and departing from the hospital. Cats should arrive and depart in a carrier for their comfort and safety. This policy is in place for the safety of your pet and all of our patients.
