Types of Pets We see
We primarily take care of dogs and cats, however we are able to examine and advise on ferrets, rabbits, and other pocket pets.
Wellness Care and Vaccines
Our goal is to keep your pet healthy and the best way to do that is with preventative medicine. Our veterinarians perform thorough physical examinations and decide what vaccines your pet needs on a case by case basis.
In House Laboratory
We have a full service, state-of-the-art in house diagnostic laboratory. This allows us to get test results within minutes, which is especially important when your pet is ill. We also utilize a reference laboratory for non-urgent blood testing.
Samples that cannot be processed in the clinic are sent by courier to our reference lab for analysis. We typically have most results within a few days.
Our state-of-the-art digital radiology system allows us to take high resolution x-rays that we can evaluate immediately in house and if needed, send to a specialist.
The surgeries we perform most commonly include spays, neuters, and tumor removals. We have two dedicated surgical suites fully equipped with overhead surgical lights, heated tables, anesthesia machines, and monitoring equipment (pulse oximetry, EKG, blood pressure, intravenous fluid pump.) With each surgery, a technician carefully monitors the patient’s vital signs every five o ten minutes throughout the procedure to ensure the safest plane of anesthesia is maintained.
All of our surgeries include the following:
Pre-anesthetic examination, day board, pre-anesthetic bloodwork, intravenous catheter, sedation, induction, intubation, gas inhalant anesthesia, anesthetic support and monitoring, peri-operative pain injection, pain medications to go home and discharge consultation.
Our new and state-of-the-art dental unit is equipped with an ultrasonic scaler that does not use the traditional “jack hammer” approach to tooth scaling, but rather adopts a more gentle technique with its revolutionary rotational tip movement and ultrasonic removal of the plaque and calculus. This causes less enamel damage and can safely scale in pockets up to 13 mm deep. We also have digital dental x-rays which allow the veterinarians to look for problems that are not always seen on visual inspection of the mouth. In special cases, we have the ability to collaborate with a Veterinary Dentist to perform more advanced dental work, such as root canals and crowns.
This non-invasive, state-of-the-art technology uses sound waves to painlessly examine internal organs. We collaborate with board certified internal medicine specialists that travel to our clinic on a regular basis to perform these exams.
We carry a complete inventory of pharmaceuticals, medicated shampoos, flea and tick control products and heartworm preventatives. If we do not have something available, we can usually have it in the clinic within a few business days.
We carry a full line of prescription diets including Hill's Science Diet, Royal Canin and Purina products. We are also able to special order any type or size of prescription diets from these companies that we do not regularly keep in stock.
Emergency & Urgent Care
Our veterinarians and staff are trained and equipped to handle urgent medical care of your pet. If you feel your pet needs emergency treatment, please call us immediately during our regular business hours. If you feel your pet is having an emergency and our facility is closed, please contact New England Veterinary Center and Cancer Care in Windsor (860) 688 – 8400 or East of the River Emergency Clinic in Bolton (860) 646-6134.
We are also available for urgent care when the condition is not life-threatening. If you feel your pet needs to be seen before you are able to get an appointment, we will do our best to work your pet into the schedule as needed.
When the time comes, we can perform end of life services in the clinic and take care of your loved one's remains. Our cremation services include general, or private cremation in which you receive your loved pet's ashes back in a vessel of your choice. We work with Final Gift, a company based out of Rhode Island. You can rest assure your pet will be treated with respect and never subjected to any testing or experiments.
