Services

We're pleased to offer the following services at {Pet Point Animal Hospital}

kitty1.pngWellness Exams

Pets age a lot faster than humans. As such their health status needs to be evaluated more frequently and earlier in life than humans. That is why we recommend annual physical exams for all pets. Annual exams aid in catching diseases early before they progress to more serious conditions. During the exam your pet will be evaluated from nose to tail and our doctors  and veterinary technicians will explain their findings to you as they go along.

Vaccinations

Our vaccine recommendations are in accordance with guidelines set by the American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA) and the American Animal Hospital Association (AAHA). Our veterinarians will evaluate your pet's unique needs and make individualized vaccine recommendations for your pet.

Lab Services

We offer in-house lab testing for both preventive care and illnesses. Having the equipment on site ensures that your pet's illness is diagnosed in a timely manner and treatment initiated.

Dentistry

Dogs and cats, like humans, need regular dental care to stay healthy. If untreated, disease from the mouth can spread and eventually affect other parts of the body. Dental care is especially important in some breeds like small breeds, breeds with long faces like greyhounds, than others which may be less prone to gum disease. At Pet Point Animal Hospital we recommend at least once yearly dental exam and cleaning. During the visit we take dental x-rays to ensure we are not missing any disease below the gum line that may not be readily visible during a regular exam.

Surgery

At Pet Point Animal Hospital we perform both elective and non-elective surgery. Elective surgeries  are those scheduled surgeries performed on relatively healthy pets. Examples of such surgeries are spays and neuters. Surgeries such as laceration repairs, mass/lump removals, intestinal foreign body removals, pyometra (uterine infection surgery) are considered non-elective surgeries. All surgeries require some degree of sedation or anesthesia. Risk of anesthesia, while always possible, is minimized by careful pre-surgical preparation, safe drug use, monitoring during surgery, proper surgical technique and minimization of time under anesthesia. After surgery we continue to monitor patients until they are full recovered and make sure we minimize pain with appropriate treatment. At discharge we will give you all the information you will need to care for your furry friend during recovery. And of course we will at all times be only a phone call away.

Radiology

X-rays, where needed are available on site using cutting edge digital x-ray equipment with excellent image quality. If needed we also have the ability to digitally send x-rays out to a board-certified radiologist for consultation.

Ultrasound

For patients that need more advanced imaging we have ultrasound equipment also available on site. Ultrasound is an important complementary diagnostic tool to radiology. Together they give a more complete picture of your pet's health. Ultrasound can be used both for emergent patients using tools such as Point of Care Ultrasound (POCUS) and FAST exams and also for more detailed studies requiring a radiologist. Just like with x-rays, if needed images can easily be sent out to a board-certified specialist for consultation. 

Reproductive Services

For breeders we are glad to offer pre-breeding evaluation, infectious disease screening and ovulation timing. Ovulation timing is done through vaginal cytology and progesterone testing. Progesterone testing is done in-house each time for consistency. If needed a Leutenizing Hormone test can be sent out to a lab. We also offer consultation on breeding husbandry, elective and emergency c-sections, perform pregnancy evaluation and management, advise about whelping management, recognition of dystocia and its management.

Emergency & Urgent Care

We have a veterinarian and personnel on duty 6 days a week who are trained and equipped to handle any urgent care your pet has during normal office hours. Usually an emergency team consists of at least one veterinarian and several technicians working together to save a pet's life. Emergencies can be things such as bufo toad poisoning, hit by car, and chocolate ingestion. If you ever feel that your pet needs emergency treatment do not hesitate to call or come in immediately. If possible it is best to call before coming in so that a team member can advise you on your particular emergency. If your pet's emergency is outside of our normal office hours we will be glad to direct you to an emergency clinic where your pet will get proper care.

We are also available for urgent care when the condition is not life-threatening. If you feel your pet needs to be seen before you are able to get an appointment, our veterinarians will work to "squeeze" you in between scheduled appointments. When you arrive, our receptionists will be able to give you an estimate on how long you may have to wait in order to be seen.
