Medical Care Services
Our experienced team of vets cares for your pets as we would our own. From simple fixes to more complicated diagnoses, our veterinarians can provide medical or surgical treatment for your animal. Young or old, we want to be there for your pet every step of the way. We provide:
Medical assessments - A comprehensive physical examination is the first step in any medical evaluation. Your pet's blood and urine can be tested further if required to ensure that their internal organs are operating properly.
Vaccinations - When it comes to keeping your pet healthy, vaccination has long been regarded as one of the easiest methods. We have a range of vaccinations available for a wide variety of illnesses.
Radiology - Vets use x-rays to examine the bones, respiratory tract (lungs), genitourinary system, digestive tract, and heart.
Ultrasounds - Diagnostic imaging techniques such as X-rays and ultrasound are often used in combination. They offer insight into the body's internal dynamics. Our vets can find many disorders using ultrasound.
Tonometry - Dogs with glaucoma may be diagnosed using tonometry, which measures the pressure inside the eye (known as intraocular pressure).
Dentistry, including dental radiology - When germs and food particles build up around a pet's teeth, the tissue and bone that support the teeth begin to deteriorate. At the very least, get your pet's oral health checked by a vet once every year.
Endoscopy - Endoscopy utilizes an endoscope to see into an animal to observe areas that aren't visible during a standard physical check.
Cardiology - The signs of congestive heart failure include difficulty in breathing, a lot of coughing, and exhaustion. To discover the root cause of cardiac illness, visit our vets today.
Endocrinology - Endocrinology is used to detect any endocrine issues in your cats and dogs.
Dermatology - Pets regularly suffer from skin diseases. If you detect extreme itching, hair loss, or the appearance of scabs or scales on your pet's skin, make an appointment with our veterinarians in Saint John.
Annual examinations - Visit our vets every year for an annual examination of your pet to maintain its overall health.
Surgery for your pet can seem daunting and stressful. We try to make the surgical process as quick and painless as possible for your pet to go back to feeling better. For your furry pet, we offer spay and neuter services. If your pet suffers an injury, we also provide soft tissue surgery to get your animal back on its feet again.
If your pet needs a long-term solution, we can refer behavioural counselling as part of their treatment. Our veterinarians are experienced in helping you find the root of the problem. If your pet makes a daring escape, ensure they have proper identification with one of our microchips.
Why Should Your Pet Visit the Vet?
Your pet may not be able to speak in words, but animals are extremely capable of conveying their emotions through gestures, expressions and unusual antics. As a pet owner, it’s important to pay attention to signs your pet is ill. If your pet has not quite been like themselves lately, you should proactively look for signs of health concerns. Here are some manifest signs that may imply that you need to visit a vet:
Odd eating habits: If you notice that your otherwise food-loving pet has been avoiding meals and has lost interest in food, you should consider visiting your Vet.
Excessive thirst: If your pet has been unusually thirsty, it could be a sign of ill-health.
Rough or dry coat : a dry coat is a clear sign of nutritional deficiencies. If you see a significant change in your pet’s coat, you should take them to a vet.
Seeming sluggish and tired: Has your otherwise active pet been keeping to themselves lately? If your pet is portraying a prolonged sluggish and lazy attitude, it could be a sign of an illness.
