See the Pain, Treat the Pain!
Family Pet Hospital now has the latest Digital Thermal Imaging Camera available for veterinary use. Our pet patients cannot speak to tell us where they hurt. Sometimes they yelp or flinch when we touch a sore, but often we can only guess where they hurt when symptoms are vague. Infra-red thermal imaging allows us to see where the inflammation is creating more heat, even if it is mild enough that the pet is not showing obvious pain. This allows us to focus additional diagnostics, such as x-rays, or treatment options, such as laser therapy, in just the right place. Come see what digital thermal imaging can reveal for your pet.
Beware of Peanut Butter with Xylitol!
A few new specialty peanut butter brands have started including xylitol as a sweetener. Xylitol is toxic to pets and even a little bit can make them fatally ill.
We've gone DIGITAL!!! Family Pet Hospital now has digital x-rays for checking for fractured legs, evaluating internal masses and finding that missing diamond ring that the new puppy was admiring. We can even email the images to you to show family at home. We have been using digital technology for dentistry for several years. We also just upgraded the dental sensor & software to one of the most advanced systems available that gives correct exposure every time.
We also just upgraded our in-house blood analyzers to state-of-the-art Heska Element DC7000 chemistry analyzer and Heska Element HT5 complete blood count analyzer.
And, have you seen our new video otoscope? Now you can see everything that we see inside your pet's ears as we evaluate for ear infections, foxtails, ear mites and ticks in live action on the computer screen.
All this means that we can find out more for your pet in less time. It demonstrates our commitment to bringing state-of-the-art technology to you, just like we promise in our Mission Statement.
