Veterinary Diagnostics & Treatment

General Consultation

Regular examinations are important to monitor the progress of disease and to ensure that the pet is on the optimum type of nutrition and medication for the best quality of life.

Radiography

Radiography takes up the majority of diagnostic medical images in veterinary practice. It is a noninvasive method that provides information such as bone structure, kidney/bladder stones, heart and lung issues, etc.

Laboratory Services

Serum biochemistry (kidney, liver testing, etc), hematology, urinalysis, heartworm testing, intestinal parasite testing, fungal culture, bacterial culture, etc.

Surgery & Dental (Tuesday-Friday Only)

Neutering/Sterilization

The common reason for encouraging sterilization is to prevent unintended pregnancies and the consequent overpopulation of dogs and cats. Furthermore, it helps to prevent or reduce the chance of diseases of the reproductive tract.

Orthopaedic Surgery

Orthopedic surgery, uses surgical procedures that will bring the canine limb back to a normal or near normal state. The veterinary surgeon may require the use of bone plates, pins or screws, nylon, casts or an artificial joint to achieve such a goal in orthopedic surgery. 

Soft Tissue Surgery

Soft tissue surgery refers to any surgery that does not involve the bones. Typically it involves the skin (lumpectomy), bladder (cystotomy), intestines (removal of foreign body), lymph nodes, and eyes (conjunctival flaps).

Dental Care

Just like humans, pets also need to have good oral hygiene. Dental disease can result in bad breath, painful chewing, and tooth loss. Bacteria under the gum can travel to the heart, kidneys, and liver, which could cause complications. A professional dental cleaning is required to remove plaque and tartar from a pet's teeth and maintain the health of the mouth.

Hospitalization

In some cases - especially after major operations - your pets may have to stay the night to be monitored or put on the intravenous fluid to maintain its condition. A nurse can be requested to be around for the night, should the need for 24/7 care be required. 

Traditional Chinese Veterinary Medicine (TCVM)

Acupuncture

Acupuncture is not a cure-all, but it is used to treat a wide variety of conditions in every species of animal. The results vary with each animal as it takes time to stimulate the body to heal itself. It can also be done either along or in conjunction with Western medicine.

Herbal Medication

Given in the form of capsules, pills, syrup or powder, these Chinese medications are specially formulated to target issues which you pet is suffering from. Some do have multiple properties that act in unison with the immune system to bring balance back to the body.

Food Therapy/Diet

In addition, the diet your pet is taking may contribute to the existing health problems. Having a healthy balanced diet is essential to complement the medications and also as a preventative measure to avoid recurring health issues.

Preventative Health Care

Vaccination/Microchipping

Vaccinations protect your pet from several highly contagious diseases such as canine distemper, parvovirus infection and respiratory tract infections. It also protects against transmissible diseases such as rabies that also pose a risk to humans.

A pet microchip is a tiny device about the size of a rice grain and it is usually implanted between the shoulder blades of your pet. If your pet has lost its way, it can be traced back to you as the microchip itself carries a unique identification number.

Basic Grooming

An animal's nails naturally wear down as they are used, but pets often do not get adequate exercise or other activities to wear their nails down as much as needed. If not trimmed regularly, the nails can curve around to dig into the sensitive skin of a pet's foot, causing sores and infections.

Animal ear infections are most commonly caused by bacteria or yeast.  Because their ear canal is mostly vertical (unlike a human ear canal that is horizontal), it is easy for debris and moisture to be retained in the ear canal.  Regular cleaning of the ears can help prevent ear infection.
