I often hear the comment “wow veterinary care costs a lot of money!” This is true, owning a pet can be very expensive. Although it is your responsibility to pay for veterinary care, it is also your joy to be able to provide your loving companion a happy and healthy life.
At Lomsnes Veterinary Hospital we are a very progressive hospital with a variety of services. Here are some of the services we offer to help you understand the professional care given to your pet.
Dr. Hayley has taken extensive training and we have an ultrasound machine you would find used in human medicine.
Dr. Lisa is our resident dentist and has gone to Baltimore, Maryland to learn from a top dental specialist. We have a dental machine that has an ultrasonic scaler, polisher, and a drill. This is the same machine you would find at your dentist.
Our surgery room has a monitoring system to measure your pet’s vital signs while under anesthetic, a bear hugger blanket, which blows warm air on your pet to maintain their body temperature, and a Registered Veterinary Technician (animal nurse) monitoring your animal while under anesthetic.
We have a digital x-ray machine which allows us to take an x-ray of your pet very quickly and the image is of very high quality. X-rays results are immediately interpreted in a hospital by your vet-no need to wait for results. For difficult cases, your pet’s x-rays can easily be sent to a specialist.
We have lab machines in our clinic, that give our veterinarians results quickly so they can begin appropriate treatment as soon as possible.
Our veterinarians have 6-8 years of intense post-secondary education and continue to learn by attending continuing education seminars.
Registered Veterinary Technician (RVT)
Our RVT’s have attended school for 2 years and learn how to monitor your animal under anesthesia, all aspects of cleaning your pet’s teeth, pharmacology, how to take x-rays, lab work including cytology and bacteriology, animal restraint, parasites, nutrition, and so much more.
All the staff at Lomsnes Veterinary Hospital are animal lovers and we take pride in caring for your pet just like they are our own.
If you decide to adopt a pet, your new family member will require training, food and water, exercise, lots of hugs and kisses, and at some point veterinary care.
