We're pleased to offer the following services at Animal Medical Center:
Our appointment book is computerized which allows us to efficiently make appointments for you and your pet. Our receptionists and team will attempt to accommodate all requests to the best of our ability.
Emergencies are accepted at anytime. If you feel you have an emergency with your pet, please call us or come to the hospital immediately. If possible it is best to call before coming in so that a staff member can advise you on your particular emergency.
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. 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 rat bait 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.
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.
Dental Disease is one of the most common diseases we see in Canine and Feline patients. One of our skilled Veterinary assistants will do the actual teeth cleaning. The cleaning includes scaling each tooth, polish, and a fluoride treatment. After each dental cleaning the technician will have either Dr. Sako or Dr. Newsom examine the mouth to make sure everything looks great. If dental x-rays are needed at that time the technician will do so. The final step to dental cleaning is finishing with a laser treatment. The laser treatment is done to prevent gingivitis and inflammation after each cleaning. To learn more about laser treatment scroll down to the Laser therapy section.
We offer a small boarding facility located in the clinic that can accommodate around 5 dogs and 4 cats. Though it may be small, animals in our care are offered the best care that can be given. They are fed their own food, or our in house food at the frequency of your choosing. Dogs are let out to play every few hours and fresh water is always available. Dogs and cats from different families are kept in separate kennels and when they are let outside to play.
If you are interested in boarding your animals, or would like to view our kennels, please don't hesitate to give us a call.
We offer bathing for all dogs from small to large breed. We do not offer any grooming, but the bathing consist of a full head to toe bath, plus a nail trim.
Infrared Thermography is used for detecting discomfort throughout the body of an animal. We use thermal imaging to measure the radiant energy from the targeted tissue. This devise is completely safe with nothing being emitted. Hotter areas depict inflammation so that we know exactly what area of the body we should be treating.
CO2 Laser Surgery
Laser surgery is a device that produces an extremely powerful and concentrated beam of light. Laser is used to minimize the pain, swelling, and bleeding during a surgical procedure. Laser surgery works by vaporizing or erasing the tissue that is being cut. Some advantages of using the laser are less trauma to your pet, promotes quicker healing, and reduces the risk of infection.
Laser therapy is deep-penetrating light that allows relief of pain through the release of endorphins and stimulates the injured cells to heal at a faster rate. We often use laser therapy for ear infections, arthritis, gingivitis, skin conditions, orthopedic surgeries, and most commonly spays and neuters.
We now offer Progesterone testing in female dogs. This is a blood test that determines when a female dog is ready to be bred. The test is ran in house and takes approximately 15 minutes. If you have any questions or would like to know more about progesterone testing, please call 219-996-8387!
