We have 4 exam rooms where you and your
pet can wait to see the doctor. After our receptionist
has checked you in, they will escort you back and
a technician will check your pet's vital signs and
get more detailed information about your pet's visit.
The technician will ask you questions regarding why
your pet is being seen today, how long has the
condition been going on and other information that
is pertinent to the doctor for diagnosing.The technician
can provide you with an estimate prior to services if desired.
Our in house lab provides fast and accurate bloodwork
for those critical cases when sending bloodwork out
is not the doctor's first choice. We can run a variety
of boodwork such as Complete Blood counts,
Chemestries, Electolytes, T-4, as well as testing for
Heartworm, Ehrlichia, Lyme disease, Parvo,Cortisol
and Felv-fiv. Otherwise, bloodwork may be sent ab testing.
Most surgeries are done on an out patient basis.
Your pet should be dropped off between the hours
of 8-9 am where he or she will be checked in by one
of our technicians. A surgery estimate will be given
and there will be surgery paperwork to sign. We have
all the proper equipment to tend to your pet. We use
several monitoring equipment like the use of an EKG
to check vital signs like heart rate and dopplers to monitor
patients blood pressure. Our temperature gauges monitor
pets closely while under anesthesia. We have warming
blankets that we use during surgery on all our patients.
Our pulse oximeter measures the amount of oxygen
saturation the patient is receiving. Monitors check
every vital aspect of the patient including respiratory rate.
Every pet is cared for as if it was a critical case and
properly monitored before and after surgery until
they go home. There is no procedure too small that
will not get our undivided attention. Most pets will
be picked up that same day between the hours of
3-6pm. In some cases it is necessary for pets to stay
overnight for further care. Upon discharge, we will
go over any medications and home care instructions
and schedule your pet for any rechecks or suture
removals. Should there be any questions or concerns,
we welcome you to call and let us know what's going
on with your pet.
Our pharmacy stocks a wide variety of medications,
shampoos and special food so we can prescribe
and send you home with everything you need.
We do also work with several pharmacies should
you need special medication that requires compounding.
We can order your prescription diets and have it ready
for you on Monday.
We carry Hills Prescription Diet only.
We are prepared to take radiographs in house, so that
we can tend to your pet and assist the doctor with
diagnostic results immediately. Our staff is highly
trained in proper radiological techniques. Sometimes,
it is nessesary to take films while under anesthesia or
sedation for pets that have been injured, to avoid
being painful and stressed.
If your pet has special needs and requires constant care
of any infectious virus, then they will be in our isolation
area. We take every precaution to ensure your pet is well
cared for while providing a safe healthy enviornment for
other sick and ill patients. One Technician will tend to
your pet only so their undivided attention is to that ward
of the hospital and your pet.
We are still expanding our knowledge in this
particular area and Dr. Kimmel is highly
motivated in advancing our knowledge of
Ultrasound. His goal is to use ultrasound in
place of invasive surgery. We anticipate expanded
use of this technology in our facility over the years.
For extreme cases that require a specialist in
ultrasound techniques, we can set up an appointment
to have the specialist come to our clinic and assist us
in various ultrasound procedures.
