Our hospital offers quality care for dogs and cats of all ages, from puppy and kitten care and immunizations to lifetime preventative medicine! We believe that great, routine care such as annual blood screening, oral health procedures, and parasite prevention can give your pet the best chance at a long, healthy and happy life!
Immunization schedules are based on your particular patient's lifestyle, and adhere to American Animal Hospital Association (AAHA) and American Association of Feline Practitioners (AAFP) guidelines. Our doctors administer only quality-assured immunizations as recommended by the latest standards of veterinary medicine, including non-adjuvented feline vaccines.
A wide range of services are available from routine spay and neuter procedures to advanced soft tissue, abdominal and oral surgery. Our soft tissue and oral surgery suites are quipped with the most advanced surgical equipment and patient monitoring devices.
Oral health is very important to overall health in our pets. SWVH is proud to include an oral exam during each patient visit to help owners understand what is recommended for both home and professional dental care. SWVH has digital dental radiograph capabilities as well as highly trained staff to ensure a complete and safe dental cleaning under anesthesia. The veterinarians at SWVH have attended various continuing education classes on pet dentistry and extraction techniques. SWVH also offers sealing or restorations to save teeth that have superficial fractures that have not yet invaded the pulp cavity.
Advanced diagnostic and treatment services are also available. These include digital radiography, ultrasound, oncology/chemotherapy administration, dermatology, and internal medicine.
