Computed Tomography, also known as CT or Cat Scan, in specialized imaging equipment that we use to evaluate pets with chronic ear disease, nasal discharge, or other abnormalities affecting the patient’s head. We are partnered with Xoran Technologies to provide our patients with a unit called the Vet CAT. It’s designed to minimize the amount of X-ray exposure while maximizing image quality. Our scans are often performed in a matter of 40 seconds of less with sedation.
Cryosurgery uses liquid nitrogen to freeze masses without the use of sutures. This is ideal for patients with masses on the skin, around the eyes, and on or in ears. Cryosurgical treatment for masses can be performed without sedation or anesthesia and does not require sutures. The mass treated by cryosurgery requires a few weeks to form the scar where the mass was located.
Intradermal Skin Testing is the gold standard of testing for environmental allergies. This gold standard in not normally available in a general practice hospital. With our doctors interest in dermatology, we provide allergy testing along with a custom formulation of patient’s allergen specific immunotherapy/allergy vaccines. This does not determine food allergies; an ingredient elimination trial/ food trial is the gold standard for diagnosing food allergies.

The use of laser surgery provides patients with a surgical procedure without experiencing the amount of inflammation and swelling, pain, or bleeding that is seen with traditional surgical techniques.
Therapy Laser Treatments improves a variety of issues including pain control, wound healing, and arthritis. Low level laser light therapy (Class IV laser) is used to improve chronic and acute pain, improve/speed wound healing, and to reduce swelling and inflammation. Therapy laser treatments are performed on all patients having elective surgery.
