Comprehensive Veterinary Services
Located in Guilford, CT, we have a comprehensive in-house laboratory and utilize two outside laboratories daily. With our team, you will know your pet’s diagnosis, and they will receive treatment promptly.
We mainly use general anesthesia; however, a doctor may use local anesthesia for minor procedures when deemed appropriate. Before a surgical procedure, each patient has a pre-surgical examination. The doctor will order pre-surgical bloodwork that checks for pre-existing conditions. While under anesthesia, oxygen saturation, heart rate, EKG, blood pressure, and respiration are all monitored to maintain normal levels.
During a dental exam, we administer general anesthesia and follow the same protocol as general surgery. A dental probe is used to look for apparent pockets or other problems. Tartar and plaque are removed with an ultrasonic scaler. In the end, the teeth are polished with a special paste. We also offer digital imaging to detect problems with bone loss and to evaluate the teeth. This enables the doctor to determine if any extractions or further treatments need to be done.
Our doctors are equipped with the tools and expertise to handle elective and non-elective surgical procedures. We can perform spaying and neutering, soft tissue, orthopedic, obstetrical, and emergency surgeries. If a case is too complex, we may refer a pet to a specialist.
The Class IV deep tissue laser therapy uses a beam of laser energy to penetrate tissue without damaging it deeply. During laser therapy, the laser light is delivered through a non-invasive handpiece. Your pet may feel a gentle and soothing warmth. Laser therapy can aid in treating wounds, allergies, cuts/bites, inflammation, tooth extraction, pain relief, arthritis, otitis, and many more conditions.
Our pets can acquire different skin conditions over time. With CryoProbe, we can provide incredibly accurate, non-invasive treatment for removing common skin conditions such as warts, cysts, eyelid tumors, oral tumors, and more. No anesthesia and little to no preoperative skin preparation or post-op care are needed.
For optimum nutritional health for your pets, we offer dietary consultations. If you have concerns about your pet’s diet related to their weight or other health issues, we would be happy to help you. Our doctors are here to discuss your concerns and help to decide what diet will best meet your pet’s nutritional needs.
