Because of the shorter lifespan of our pets, we stress the importance of an annual physical examination. Thorough check-ups and preventive care can help prevent and/or alleviate serious health problems.
Diagnostic and therapeutic services
Our hospital is equipped to provide diagnostic and therapeutic services to care for your pets’ complete health care needs.
We were the first clinic in Southern Illinois to offer laser surgery. Laser surgery is less painful, causes less bleeding, less discomfort, a reduced chance of infection, and in most cases, a quicker recovery and return to normal activities.
Reduce pain, improve mobility, promote healing, enhance your pet’s quality of life. All of this without drugs, surgery, or side effects.
We utilize the safest available anesthetics to provide an extra margin of safety, especially for our older or high-risk patients. Using the most modern equipment, the patient’s vital signs are monitored during all anesthetic procedures.
We offer referrals to board-certified specialists who perform more advanced diagnostic procedures and help us with the diagnosis of more complicated cases.
Our on-site, Digital X-ray equipment allows quicker, more precise x-rays with less exposure to your pet than conventional equipment. It also gives us the ability to easily burn images onto CD’s or email them for consultation with a board-certified radiologist.
Our dental services include teeth cleaning and polishing, dental X-rays, tooth extractions and minor oral surgery.
Our in-house laboratory facilities provide for serum chemistry, hematology, and parasite testing. We also utilize commercial veterinary laboratories for specialized diagnostics and consultations.
