The Healthy Examination
This is also called the Wellness Exam, and it seems to be a bit of a misnomer. Why bring your pets to the veterinarian if they are ‘healthy’? Establishing what is normal for your pet is one of the most important assessments we can do. This is the time to talk about day to day routines, such as behavior and appetite, exercise and sleep patterns. Read more…
Diagnostics are the tools we have to help us understand why your pet is ill or not behaving normally.
They are used in addition to the physical examination to gather information about your pet.
We do many diagnostic tests on site:
- blood work such as WBC counts, total protein, glucose, BUN and PCV
- Fine needle testing of lumps
- skin scrapes and smears
- ear smears
- fecal tests and smears
- blood pressure measurement
We work with a laboratory for the more complex blood work and cultures, and have a turn around time of less than 24 hours. We have an ultrasound technician that will come to the clinic for our patients, and usually get a report by the next day.
Surgical procedures are an integral part of veterinary care. Dr. Olinyk brings 30 years of experience to the surgical table. She works with two veterinary technicians to ensure your pet has a personal attendant from the time of the pre-operative assessment right through to the recovery period. Read more…
Comprehensive dental care is important for maintaining your pet’s quality of life. We want those teeth to last a long time, and have the tools to ensure that they do. During the examination, we will discuss home care, diets, treats and toys that can impact the health of the teeth. Read more…
