Crescent Falls Veterinary Hospital Offers Veterinary Services In Vernon for Pet Health
During your pet’s lifetime, he or she may require a number of different veterinary services. From routine vaccinations to complex surgery, our Vernon veterinarians are your partners in providing healthcare for your animal companion. At Crescent Falls Veterinary Hospital in Vernon, BC, we offer many services to help pets maintain good health and function throughout their life.
We can provide a full head-to-tail physical exam to ensure your pet maintains good health at every age. Any small problems can be detected early and addressed before they become larger issues.
One of the simplest ways to guard your pet’s health and as a way of preventing disease, is to keep them current on their vaccinations. During the yearly health exam, we can review your pet's health risks, and tailor the vaccinations to their risks. If you have any concerns regarding diseases or outbreaks that may require additional immunizations please contact us.
Preventative care is an important part in keeping pets healthy. A yearly health exam gives us an opportunity to discuss health risks, including internal parasites, tick and flea control, and prevention of heartworm disease. Having these discussions allows us to make recommendations specific to your pet and their risks, and is another way of minimizing future health problems.
We perform dental exams as a way to fully assess your pet's oral health. Based on our findings we will make recommendations which may include dental surgery. This procedure includes scaling and polishing, dental radiographs and any necessary tooth extractions, all of which will improve your pets long term health.
Laboratory and Diagnostics
Our animal hospital is able to provide many in house tests, including bloodwork and urinalysis. These tests help detect infection and assess function of the internal organs. These tests can be used to find diseases in their early stages, so treatment can be implemented immediately, and are also used to monitor disease progression.
We can perform a variety of surgical procedures including spays and neuters as well as wound repairs, lump removals, soft tissue surgeries, abdominal surgeries and orthopedic surgeries. We are also happy to work with Dr. Bhandal, a small animal surgical specialist, who regularly consults on cases and performs surgery at our hospital.
Low levels of laser energy have been found to help heal tissues and relieve pain. The process is painless for pets and does not require the use of drugs or surgery. This technology can be used for a variety of conditions including arthritis, sprains and strains, back injuries and wound healing.
We can also help when your pet has an emergency health problem. An emergency would involve excessive bleeding, breathing problems, heatstroke, seizures, possible poisoning, visibly fractured bones, unconsciousness, or inability to urinate or defecate. These problems require immediate attention and our veterinarians will try and see your pet as quickly as possible.
