Full-service veterinary care
Preventative care for your pet is important to keep them healthy and happy. By bringing your pet in for regular check-ups and vaccinations, you can help prevent many diseases and health problems. Your veterinarian can also give you advice on how to keep your pet healthy, such as what type of food to feed them and how often to exercise them.
We recommend annual health visits for all pets. At these visits, your pet will receive a nose-to-tail examination as well as an update on any necessary vaccinations and diagnostics such as a heartworm screen, fecal screen, and tick-borne disease screen. Annual visits provide an opportunity to check in on chronic health conditions, discuss new symptoms and make sure everyone has a clean bill of health!
Here at Thornwood, we perform routine surgeries such as spays, neuters, mass removals, digit amputations, tail amputations, and hernia repairs on a regular basis. Emergency surgeries such as pyometra, abdominal exploratory surgery, foreign body removals, and wound repairs are also in our repertoire, but we hope the need never arises for your pet! For more complex surgeries such as joint surgery, fracture repairs, and anal sacculectomies, we bring in a board-certified surgeon approximately once a month. If your pet suffers an injury and needs a cruciate ligament repair, we are here to help in an affordable way with top-notch care!
Dentistry with Digital Dental X-Ray
We offer complete oral health assessments and treatment plans, including digital dental x-rays, surgical extractions (if indicated), scaling of teeth above and below the gum line, and polishing, just like you would have at your dentist! Oral health is paramount to the overall comfort and wellbeing of pets, and we are here to help with every facet!
Digital Radiography & Ultrasonography
Digital radiography is a great way to get high-quality images of your pet’s internal organs and bones. This technology uses a digital sensor to capture the image, which can be viewed on a computer screen or printed out for your records. Digital radiography has many benefits over traditional film-based radiography. Digital radiography can be performed on both small and large animals, and the procedure is generally safe and well-tolerated by patients. It is an extremely useful tool for veterinarians, and it can play a vital role in the diagnosis and treatment of animal diseases.
Pet ultrasonography/ultrasound is a non-invasive, painless diagnostic tool that uses high-frequency sound waves to create images of the inside of your pet’s body. It is often used to evaluate the hearts of animals, as well as to assess liver, kidney, and bladder function. Pet ultrasonography can also be used to detect foreign bodies, such as stones or tumors. The procedure is typically well tolerated by animals and requires no special preparation. Pet ultrasonography is a safe and effective way to obtain valuable information about your pet’s health.
If your pet is ill or injured, you may need to take them to an emergency facility for treatment. Emergency facilities have veterinarians and staff on duty who are equipped to handle any type of medical emergency. If you are not sure whether or not your pet needs to be seen by a veterinarian, you can always call us for advice.
We understand that your pet is part of your family, and when they’re not feeling well, you want to do everything you can to help them. That’s why we offer same-day sick appointments so that you can get your furry friend the care they need as soon as possible. We know how difficult it can be to see your pet in pain, and we’ll do everything we can to make sure they’re feeling better in no time.
Our in-house laboratory offers a variety of tests and procedures to help us diagnose and treat your pet. We are able to perform complete blood counts (CBCs), biochemical profiles, urinalysis, cytology of ears, skin, and masses, and much more. This allows us to have results quickly so that we can start your pet on the best possible treatment as soon as possible.
