Annual exams are an important part of pet ownership. Young animals need regular exams to ensure they are growing and maturing in a healthy way. Older animals also need regular checkups as most diseases are easier to treat when caught early. At our clinic wellness exams are designed to aid in the early detection and prevention of disease. These exams are always done with compassion to minimize any stress our furry patients may experience.
Health care is an ever changing field and our clinic prides itself on always being up to date on current diagnostic and treatment options. We also consult with specialists as needed to ensure your pet will receive the best care possible.
Silver Springs Animal Hospital is equipped with a modern surgical suite where orthopedic and soft tissue surgeries are performed. We use state of the art anesthesia monitoring equipment to track blood pressure, oxygen saturation and ECG. Our warming equipment and excellent pain management protocols ensure our patients are as comfortable as possible. Cuddles are also provided as needed!
Dental care is very important to the overall health of your pet. Dogs and cats that receive regular dental care live years longer, pain free lives as compared with pets who live with dental disease. We are very experienced in this area and provide:
- Help to clients interested in home dental care
- Prophylactic cleaning including ultrasonic scaling, polishing and fluoride treatments
- Dental radiographs and surgical extractions
Our in house radiology equipment allows us to achieve a diagnosis and start treatment as quickly as possible. No long wait times!
