Relief and/or improvement is often noticed within hours, and can work in conjunction with regular treatment protocols by your favorite veterinarian in Gainesville or Newberry, Florida.
Boarding and Kennels
We offer short-term boarding services for our existing clients, and we provide bowls and bedding. Pets must be current on vaccinations and free of external/internal parasites in order to board with us. We also offer exit-boarding baths, special dips, and baths with flea prevention (prices vary upon weight). Dogs are walked 3 times per day and exercised in our yards. (additional walks are available for an additional cost). If your pet boards for 5 nights or longer with us, your pet is entitled to a bath at 1/2 price (including ear cleaning and nail trim). Please call our client service representatives for pricing. To register a pet for boarding: Boarding Release Form
To avoid potential hazards, your pet's collars and leashes will be removed and returned to you when your pet is dropped off for boarding. If your dog has a bed that needs to be with them for a medical reason, we will accommodate it, but we cannot accept any responsibility for loss or damage. We do not have the capability of cleaning dog beds.
A lost pet can weigh heavily on a pet owner. Improve the chances of a happy reunion with a microchip that is implanted under the skin and provides a way of permanent identification. Ask our client service staff about the many happy endings associated with pets returned because of these simple implants. A microchip ID is a small transmitter about the size of a grain of rice. When a scanner passes over it, a signal is emitted indicating the unique identification number of the chip. It is also important to remember to keep your contact information up-to-date after your initial registration. Visit www.SaveThisLife.com to see how they have patented a way to use a Google™ search to help you find your lost pet! When someone finds a pet and performs a Google™ search of the microchip number, they can then privately contact the pet owner via text and email. The pet owner receives a GPS map of where the person who found their pet is located!
Radiographic Imaging X-ray
A Direct Digital Radiologic suite reduces patient exposure and decreases the amount of time to get total quality images. In addition to the safety aspect, the digital image quality is state of the art and allows us to store, transmit and enhance the images using our computer network. This advanced technology will provide our doctors with a higher degree of diagnostics allowing for increased radiographic capabilities well beyond the traditional methods.
This unit is used during many surgical procedures. It allows the surgeon to cut and coagulate (stop bleeding), using radio-waves. This state-of-the art equipment works with a radiofrequency tip that actually becomes energized but does not become hot. Because it functions this way, there is no risk of shock or electrical burns as seen with conventional electrocautery. Radiowave surgery offers many benefits such as; decreased blood loss, reduced risk of infection, minimized tissue destruction, and quicker recovery time. Radiosurgery can be employed for spay/neuter, tumor removal, mastectomy, skin tags and biopsy procedures. Ask the doctor’s and staff about this technique, or visit our surgery page!
This is a great tool to provide our doctors with a non-invasive look inside. One of the most common reasons for a veterinarian to use ultrasound is as an aid to diagnosis. For example, if a male cat is brought in by an owner who claims that the cat is having difficulty urinating, the veterinarian might use ultrasound to check for an obstruction in the bladder or urethra. While examining these organs the veterinarian can also look at bladder thickness, and for bladder stones. Ultrasound can also be used to examine suspicious masses and other findings which occur during a manual exam. It can also be used in emergency settings to look for serious medical problems such as internal organs damaged in a collision.
Acupuncture can be an excellent therapy for chronic conditions that are managed rather than completely cured with western medicine. This can include many musculoskeletal problems such as arthritis, disc disease, seizures, gastrointestinal disorders such as vomiting, diarrhea and constipation, chronic respiratory problems such as asthma, and skin problems, kidney disease and some urinary tract disorders. For more information about how acupuncture can help your pet, please visit our holistic location website. The holistic location is next door to our 39th Ave location which is near the I-75 exit in Gainesville.
