Veterinary Services

Immunizations & Wellness Care:
After completing a comprehensive physical examination, your veterinarian will evaluate your pet’s age, breed and lifestyle to determine the risk of potential disease. After discussing your pet’s needs, we will design a preventive health care and vaccination plan that is best for your pet.

Emergency & Critical  Care:
During  hospital hours, emergencies are given priority over routine procedures. At this time we can not offer emergency services after hours. We are working toward this as a goal for the future.

Rattlesnake Vaccines and Treatment:
We have had some incidents with Rattlesnake bites in the McCall and surrounding area.  We do recommend vaccinating dogs that are at risk, such as when hiking, working dogs, and hunters.  Should your dog be bitten by a rattlesnake, immediate attention is needed.  We also normally carry the rattlenake antivenom that is needed for treatment of a bite along with supportive care.  Rattlesnake vaccinations can decrease the damage the bite induces and decreases the probability of death.

Internal  Medicine:
We can provide most diagnostics for determining your pet’s problem(s) and provide appropriate treatment.. We also provide several non-invasive diagnostic procedures for more complete information.  We also can
initiate or follow up with chemotherapy for cancer patients.

Fully Stocked  Pharmacy:
Our  pharmacy is one of the most comprehensive available, so when you need a medication  prescribed by your veterinarian, you will go home with that medication without having to travel far and wide to acquire it and delay the treatment for your  pet. In many cases, we can provide those medications at or below the internet  pharmacy prices.

 

Pain Management:
We  believe that your special friend should not endure pain inflicted by surgery,  disease, or injuries. As a member of the International Veterinary Academy of Pain Management, we put great effort into minimizing and treating pain.  We utilize aggressive pain management strategies including pre-emptive analgesia, local pain blocks, epidural analgesia, balanced multi-modal anesthetics and a variety of post-op pain medications. We also follow strict guidelines for proper care and handling of your pet before, during, and after surgery.  We also offer the latest technology for pain management-Class IV Laser therapy and Stem Cell Therapy.  These are exciting adjuncts to all the other pain management medications and treatments.  See Laser Therapy and Stem Cell Therapy.

Advanced Dental  Care:
The number one health problem diagnosed in 9 out of 10 cats and dogs over 4 years of  age is periodontal disease. Dental disease puts tremendous demands on your pet’s  organs, weakening the liver, kidney and heart. We offer preventive dental care that can add years to the life of your pet.

Radiology:
Our state of the art, high frequency x-ray machine produces high quality digital radiographs, allowing our doctors to see fine detail and subtle changes. Our ultrasound examinations  allow non-invasive imaging of the abdomen and chest.Many diseases can be accurately diagnosed with ultrasound: pancreatitis, heart disease, liver disease and kidney disease to name a few. Both x-rays and ultrasound can be forwarded to board certified specialists by telemedicine for consultations.

 

SURGERY

Routine & Soft Tissue:
All routine and non-routine surgeries are done with anesthetics appropriate for that procedure. Most are done with the use of Isoflurane or sevoflurane, inhalant anesthetics which are very safe agents. All patients are monitored by a technician as well as a monitor that measures heart rate, temperature, electrocardiogram, blood  oxygen level, and respiration rate.  Routine surgeries  such as spays and neuters are done on a scheduled basis. Emergency surgeries are done on a priority basis.

Routine Surgery:
Spays, neuters, dewclaw removal, entropion, hernias, and others too numerous to  list.

Non-Routine:
Gastric-dilitation-torsion  (bloat), thoracic surgery (some), cancer, pyometra, exploratory abdominal surgery, fractures, etc

Extensive In-House Laboratory:
Our in-house laboratory gives us point-of-care diagnostic abilities when we’re treating sick  or injured pets, and allows us to properly evaluate every surgical case prior to anesthesia. More extensive non-routine laboratory tests are sent out to a laboratory with results returned within a short time. .

Hospitalization:
We know your pet will feel more at ease with you at home, but sometimes sick patients need  services that can only be performed in the hospital. We strive to keep the length of hospital stays as brief as possible. While in the hospital your pet will rest comfortably on soft linens in our hospital ward. A veterinary technician is assigned to monitor the conditionof each patient and to provide attentive medical treatment with tender loving care. Your pet’s doctor will consult with you to inform you of your pet’s progress and to discuss treatment options.

Physical Rehabilitation:
We are constantly upgrading our equipment to provide physical therapy for pets. We have recently added lasers to our regimine to assist in pain management and rehabilitation of surgical procedures and certain physical disabilities.
