Now offering Laser Therapy
Animal Care Hospital is now offering laser therapy treatments for patients. With cold-laser therapy, infrared light interacts with the light energy within the body at the cellular level. This interaction helps reduce pain, inflammation, and enhances tissue healing. After a consultation with our veterinarians, a laser therapy treatment plan will be created specifically for your pet. Patients that benefit include those with arthritis, wounds, back pain and injuries, chronic ear infections, torn knee ligaments, and surgical incision healing.
Animal Care Hospital is equipped with the latest technology and pharmaceuticals to help ensure a safe and un-eventful anesthesia for your pet. Prior to any anesthetic event, we perform a thorough physical examination and recommend blood work as a pre-anesthetic health screen. Anesthetic monitoring is achieved via indirect blood pressure oscilometry, pulse oximetry, temperature, and heart rate monitors. Additional patient support is provided through heated surgical pads, intravenous catheterization and fluids, as well as constant supervision by a doctor and veterinary technician.
At Animal Care Hospital, we take your pets’ health very seriously. Though anesthesia is always a risk, we strive to minimize complications through methodical and vigilant patient care.
