ANVC Provides Outstanding Care
Due to the shorter lifespan of our pets, we stress the importance of an annual physical examination. Thorough check-ups and preventive care can help alleviate serious health problems. We offer a wide range of veterinary services to keep your companions feeling their best:
Our hospital is equipped to provide diagnostic and therapeutic services to care for your pets' complete health care needs.
Acupunture: Acupuncture is used by our trained veterinarian as a form of integrative medicine to compliment and work in conjunction with conventional Western Medicine. Her practice focuses on using acupuncture as a combination therapy to help alleviate pain and inflammation related to orthopedic conditions in an effort to decrease the frequency of dosing and the amount of the dose needed, of pain and anti-inflammatory medications. Learn more about Acupunture.
Anesthesia: We utilize a wide variety of injectable anesthetics and analgesics as well as isoflurane gas. Anesthesia protocols are tailored to each individual patient to maximize comfort and safety during surgery. During anesthesia and recovery all patients are monitored by a licensed veterinary technologist using a pulse oximeter and blood pressure monitor. Warm water heating blankets are used to keep the patient warm during surgery. Heat discs/bags and lamps are used for warmth once they are in the recovery ward.
Dentistry: Our dental services include teeth cleaning and polishing, digital dental X-rays, extractions and minor oral surgery. Learn more about dental care in pets.
Surgical Services: Our modern surgical suite provides for the operation of a wide variety of surgical procedures. Surgical FAQ's
