Preventative Care is vital in making sure your pet receives routine exams in order to address changes in behavior, weight, eye sight, hearing, as well as their general chemical makeup. When you bring your pet in annually for vaccines, we are able to maintain a veterinary-patient relationship and can address issues sooner when they first appear rather than later when the solution may be harder to obtain.
Our head-to-tail examinations include, but are not limited to, temperature, weight, eye and ear sensory ability, heart and lung auscultation, abdominal palpation, and orthopedic mobility evaluation. Examinations allow us to determine the physical health of your pet and address issues that may be present or progression. Some common issues that can be diagnosed include skin issues, itchiness, ear infections, allergies, behavioral issues, and pain managment.
Vaccines are the most important part of preventative care and keeping your pet healthy and safe from multiple viral and bacterial infections. Vaccines offered include:
Our hospital has the ability to preform in house laboratory services as well as collaborating with Idexx Laboratories for routine and specialized diagnostics
Fecal Exams, Canine 4dx Heartworm Tests, Feline Triple Snap Tests, Urinalysis, and Routine Chemistry Panels are all offered at annual appointments to give us, and you, the best insight to your fur-baby's overall current health status. We highly recommend routine chemistry and urinalysis once your pet is considered a senior at 7 years old.
We have the ability to preform a wide range of surgeries that your pet may need. We recommend spaying and neutering every pet due to medical conditions they can develop with age. Exams are required to diagnosis other conditions that may require surgery.
Spaying and Neutering your fur babies is the best way to prevent life threatening conditions such as testicular cancer, prostate cancer, pyometra, and mammary cancer. These conditions often develop as your fur-baby ages. In order to avoid these conditions, we recommend spaying and neutering between 5-6 months of age.
Routine dental cleanings are important for preventing periodontal disease, tooth decay, and bad breath. As your pet ages, the risks increase and the more important it is to make note of the dental hygiene. Each pet develops tartar at different rates due to genetics and diet, therefore it is important to keep a good eye on your pet's dental health. We recommend dental cleanings when tartar become present.
We offer dental cleanings at a discounted price during the month of February!
Non-Routine Surgical Procedures include things such as mass removals, pyometras, orthopedic repairs, amputations, etc. An exam is needed to evaluate the intensity of the procedure needed and if we are able to do it at our facility.
We have the ability to perform radiographs and ultrasound imaging to evaluate conditions and confirm conditions depending on the severity of the issue.
Our on-site x-ray equipment provides high quality radiographs to aid in the diagnosis of various issues. We can also submit radiographs to a board certified veterinary radiologist to further evaluation to confirm suspected conditions.
Our on-site ultrasound machine can be used to confirm simple suspected conditions. Complex cases may be referred to a certified ultrasound specialist.
CVH is closed from 2pm-3pm on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday to allow our team time for lunch.
