When humans get sick, they simply go to their doctor, explain their symptoms and receive the appropriate treatment. Unfortunately, managing the health of our animal companions isn’t always this straightforward. Because our pets cannot speak, they can’t tell us what’s bothering them. What’s more, many animals are able to mask the signs of an illness or injury, providing little indication of what may be ailing them. It’s up to us, as pet owners and veterinary professionals, to recognize the signs of a potential problem and address it in a timely manner. Dogwood Animal Hospital utilizes a number of diagnostic tools, such as blood work and ultrasound imaging, to help us diagnose and treat our patients in the most efficient and effective manner possible. We’re prepared to be your pet’s voice and help return them to good health again as soon as possible.

We invite you to start a conversation today to find out if this innovative treatment option would benefit your four-legged friend.

Many dog owners choose to have their companions’ ears cropped, either to remain consistent with the breed or simply out of preference.

Our doctors and care team will take every precaution to ensure that your pet’s procedure is as safe and successful as possible.

You take good care of your own teeth. You brush every day. You floss regularly. You visit the dentist at least once a year. What about your animal companion? If you’re not providing your pet with the same level of dental care, you may be inadvertently placing them in harm’s way. Without regular exams and cleanings, tartar and bacteria can build up on your pet’s teeth and below the gum line. Over time, this can lead to everything from bad breath and tooth loss to dental disease, a serious medical condition that can wreak havoc on your pet’s entire body and even shorten his or her life. The good news is this can all be prevented through routine dental care. Dogwood Animal Hospital offers all of the professional pet dentistry services your pet needs to achieve a lifetime of healthy teeth and gums.
