DIAGNOSTIC & THERAPEUTIC SERVICES

Our hospital is equipped to provide diagnostic and therapeutic services for your pet’s health care needs.

  • Surgical services – Our surgery suite is equipped to perform a wide variety of general surgical procedures, using safe anesthetics with vital sign monitoring during all procedures.  Post-operative pain management is provided for all patients undergoing painful surgical procedures.  Many of our surgeries are performed on an “out-patient” basis, with the pet being admitted the morning of surgery and discharged in the afternoon.
  • Dentistry – Regular dental care is important to maintain the health of your pet’s teeth.  Our dental services include teeth cleaning and polishing, tooth extractions, and minor oral surgery.  More complex dental problems can be referred to a specialist in veterinary dentistry.  We also carry a range of products for home dental care between cleanings.
  • Radiology –Our on-site x-ray equipment allows for rapid diagnosis of many disorders.
    • PennHIP/OFA exams – Dr. Monnig is certified in the PennHIP method for hip dysplasia evaluation.  We also perform OFA evaluations for hip and elbow dysplasia.
  • Laboratory – Our in-house laboratory facilities allow rapid evaluation of patient blood, urine, and stool samples for diagnosis of parasites and disease.  We also utilize commercial laboratories for more specialized or comprehensive diagnostic testing.
  • Pharmacy – We maintain a complete inventory of pharmaceuticals, dietary supplements, heartworm preventives, and flea and tick control products to meet your pet’s needs.  For pets that are difficult to medicate, we can compound many medications into a flavored liquid formulation for easier administration.
  • Cryosurgery – Using our cryosurgery device, we can remove small skin growths on our patients painlessly without the need for anesthesia.
  • Laser therapy – Our Class IV therapeutic laser can be used to reduce the pain from arthritis or injury, speed wound healing, and reduce pain and swelling after surgery.
  • Reproductive services – Dr. Monnig provides breeding management services for dogs, including ovulation timing, collection and shipping of chilled semen, and vaginal and surgical insemination of fresh, chilled, and frozen semen.
