Wellness Care is the cornerstone of care at Western Hills Pet Hospital. A healthy pet is a happy pet and the best way to keep your pet happy and healthy is through regular preventive care. Your pet ages more quickly than people do and they often hide symptoms of disease and pain, so twice-yearly exams are very important to make sure we catch any problems early. Vaccines and regular parasite control keep your pet from suffering from many preventable diseases. Our wellness plans include the preventive care your pet needs at a fraction of the cost.
Yearly dental cleanings are necessary for most pets over the age of 3 in order to keep their teeth and gums healthy. Dental disease is not only painful, it allows bacteria into the blood stream which then settles in the kidneys, liver, and valves of the heart causing premature disease. By keeping your pet’s teeth healthy, not only are we keeping your pet from painful gum disease, we are also helping them live a longer and healthier life. All of our dental cleanings are done under general anesthesia, allowing us to do a full oral exam, complete ultrasonic scaling of the teeth, polishing and fluoride treatment.
Our clinic offers a full in-house laboratory so that we can offer same day (often in 15 minutes or less) results on internal organ function tests including liver, kidney, blood sugar, electrolytes, and red and white blood cells. Our in-house lab also includes urinalysis, fecal parasite checks, ear cytology looking for ear mites, yeast or bacteria, heart worm checks, parvo test, etc. Any tests that we are not able to perform in-house, we send to Idexx and usually will have results within 1-2 days.
X-rays allow us to take a look inside your pet to help diagnose internal problems. Our high definition digital x-rays give us answers within minutes while you wait. We also have the ability to email the x-rays to you for your records or to an outside specialist for confirmation of any problems.
All of our surgeries are performed in a sterile surgical suite. We have the ability to do most any surgery your pet may need. Before anesthesia, we check your pet’s blood to make sure liver, kidneys, red and white blood cells are all functioning properly. While under anesthesia we give your pet IV fluids to keep them hydrated and their blood pressure at a safe level. We also monitor blood pressure, oxygen saturation, ECG and we use Sevoflurane gas anesthesia which is the safest on the veterinary market.
Here at Western Hills Pet Hospital we strongly believe that the best way to keep pets happy and healthy is through regular preventive care. That is why we offer wellness plans that provide the preventive care that your pet needs at a price you can afford.
