  • CBC - Complete blood count, gives information regarding red and white blood cells and platelets.

  • Comprehensive Panel - Blood chemistry test, shows how vital organs are functioning.

  • T4 - Thyroid function test.

  • FeLv/FIV test is a blood test for our feline patients.

  • Fecal parasite screenings are recommended twice a year.

  • Urinalysis/Sediment - Detects bladder inflammation and/or infection.

  • Digital Radiographs - X-rays are a very useful diagnostic tool as they can help give a better picture of what might be going on inside of an animal's body.  Digital dental radiographs give a better picture of the mouth and teeth, especially below the gumline.

  • Ultrasonography - Diagnostic imaging tool, especially useful in obtaining urine samples and visualizing organs

 

Wellness exams

One of our goals at TLC Veterinary Hospital is to provide guidance and ensure that veterinary visits lead to early disease detection and prevention. An important component is emphasis of yearly wellness exams for young cats and dogs and biannual wellness exams for our pets over the age of 8 (depending on size and breed).

 

Vaccinations

  • Feline Vaccinations Offered

Specialty and Surgical Services:

Spay (Ovariohysterectomy): The procedure of spaying your female pet involves the removal of both ovaries as well as the uterus. 

Neuter: The procedure of neutering your male pet involves the removal of both testicles.

Dental: At TLC Veterinary Hospital we believe preventative dental care is extremely important for our patients. However, when regular brushing and other measures just aren't quite enough, we recommend dental cleaning. This procedure requires the animal to be put under general anesthesia so we are able to clean and polish each individual tooth.  Digital dental radiographs are recommended as a preventative measure and are sometimes necessary to treat an issue found during this routine procedure. 

Tumor Removals: This surgery is commonly done to remove problematic growths. It is common, especially in older animals, to have fatty growths or other types of tumors. 

Ultrasounds: If a problem cannot be diagnosed with x-rays, lab work, etc., sometimes an ultrasound is recommended. We will contact one of our highly qualified specialists and schedule a session at your convenience.

Endoscopy: All three of our veterinarians are experienced in endoscopic procedures. Endoscopies are a less invasive way of retrieving foreign bodies, performing biopsies, or just getting a better look at what might be going on inside an animal's G.I. tract.
