At The Animal Hospital of Wilkes, P.A., we can care for:
Diagnostic and Therapeutic Services
Our hospital is equipped to provide diagnostic and therapeutic services to care for your pets' complete health care needs. Our caring staff is skilled in pet wellness, diagnostics, disease prevention, the care and treatment of sick and injured pets.
Our state-of-the-art surgical suite provides for the performance of a wide variety of surgical procedures. Appointments are required for elective procedures. We offer pre-surgical laboratory testing to evaluate your pet's health status. We do recommend pain medications for your pets comfort following surgery and recuperation at home following discharge. Each of our doctors perform elective and emergency surgical operations.
We utilize the safest available anesthetics to provide that extra margin of safety, for every patient and especially for our older or high risk patients. Using the most modern equipment, the patient's vital signs are visually and electronically monitored during all anesthetic procedures.
Our on-site, modern X-ray equipment provides high quality radiographs to aid in the diagnosis of many disorders.
We provide ECG services transmitted to Cardiopet for consultations with cardiology specialists.
Chemotherapy is available for treatment of some cancer conditions.
We maintain a complete inventory of pharmaceuticals, vitamins, shampoos and heartworm preventatives to meet the needs of your pet. Our top quality products are priced competitively.
Our dental services include teeth cleaning and polishing, needed tooth extractions and oral surgery. We recommend pre-anesthetic laboratory testing for older patients, pain medication for post procedure comfort and antibiotics if needed for infection management.
We provide pet boarding as a service to our clients. All boarders receive personal attention from our caring staff. Pets may be dropped off and picked up during regular business hours Monday through Saturday. We have an outside exercise area for dogs. Reservations are needed, all vaccines must be current, or be updated at least 10 days prior to boarding. Written proof must be provided for pets that received disease vaccines at other veterinary hospitals. If proof can not be documented, the pet will be given the necessary vaccines for your pets protection. We do not board young pups or kittens. We will gladly board those pups and kittens after they have completed their entire vaccine series at least one month before the boarding reservation date.
