The Animal Hospital
The Animal Hospital is a full-service companion animal veterinary hospital. This means we provide a range of services for your cat or dog, from vaccinations to emergency care, and everything in between.
Preventative Health Care for Cats and Dogs
Whether your pet is young or old, our veterinarians will help you plan for your pet’s preventative healthcare needs. We work with each client to establish the individual pet’s needs to maintain a long-lasting relationship.
The hallmark for good health care is the annual physical examination. We recognize that an older pet needs more frequent care and encourage bi-annual exams for pets that are over the age of 7 years.
We discuss your pet’s environment and activity to decide which immunizations meet your pet’s needs.
Digital X-Ray and Ultrasound
The Animal Hospital performs a variety of digital X-ray techniques daily. We have a relationship with local board-certified veterinary radiologists who perform ultrasounds of the heart and abdomen.
Dentistry and Digital Dental Imaging
We perform routine cleanings, extractions, and oral surgeries. Each dental procedure includes full mouth dental X-rays.
Good oral hygiene can add years to your pet’s life. If you’ve noticed bad breath, discolored teeth or plaque build-up or if your pet is having trouble chewing, schedule an exam with our veterinarians to discuss your pet’s dental care needs.
The Animal Hospital uses state of the art monitoring equipment during each dental procedure including ECG, pulse oximetry, blood pressure, end tital CO2, and body temperature. All patients receive intravenous fluids and wake up from their procedure under a forced warm air blanket.
Your pet will also benefit from pre- and peri-operative pain control during their dental procedure.
Internal Medicine and Dermatology
Our veterinarians see a wide variety of internal medicine and dermatology cases. We can set up a diagnostic plan and treat allergies, skin disorders, endocrinopathies, gastrointestinal disease, urinary tract/kidney disease, heart disease, parasites, ear disease, cancer, behavioral, neurological, and ocular problems.
The Animal Hospital is well equipped to handle most medical emergencies and intensive care needs for your pet. Triangle Veterinary Referral Hospital and Veterinary Specialty Hospital, both in Durham, are available for after-hours emergencies.
In-Hospital and Reference Labs
The Animal Hospital has an extensive in-house laboratory for diagnostic labwork. and also utilizes a relationship with a comprehensive reference diagnostic laboratory to meet your pet’s needs.
The Animal Hospital houses a spacious surgical suite where we perform a variety of soft tissue surgical procedures. We utilize a carbon dioxide laser that decreases surgical pain and reduces healing time.
