Certified Quality Care

When your pet is sick or injured, you want to help them as fast as you can. Our modern facility is fully equipped with the best technology to diagnose the problem, so that our team of highly skilled vets can begin treatment right away.

Medical Assessment

When your dog or cat isn’t feeling well, we begin with a thorough exam to find the problem. Our veterinarians will check your pet’s ears, eyes, skin, gastrointestinal, cardiovascular, neurological, and skeletal systems in order to look for anything abnormal. The doctor may need to perform blood and/or urine tests to check your pet’s liver, kidneys, pancreas, and endocrine system, including the adrenal and thyroid glands.

Further diagnostic tests may be recommended based on your pet’s condition, such as radiography, endoscopy, ultrasound, or biopsy. Unfortunately, our pets can’t tell us what’s wrong, so we will take every step necessary to get them the treatment they need.

Puppy and Kitten Care

Congratulations on the new addition to your family! Let’s get your little one started off on the right foot.

The first step to lifelong health is an initial wellness exam, where our vets will give your puppy or kitten a full examination and make sure they are free from intestinal parasites. Your veterinarian will discuss nutritional needs, vaccinations, flea, tick, and heartworm prevention, behavioral concerns, and other important information.

Schedule your first exam as soon as you can to ensure that your new puppy or kitten is off to a healthy start. Your first exam may take a little longer than subsequent exams, because we want to be sure to cover all the important aspects of their growth and healthy development.

Hospitalization

When your pet’s condition requires a hospital stay, it’s very stressful for both you and them! We understand that your dog or cat will rest better at home with you, so we try to make their hospital stay as brief as possible. We have specific wards for dogs and cats, as well as units for isolation and intensive care. Our veterinary technicians will monitor your pet closely throughout the day, treating them with as much care as we would our own pets. Several times a day our vets will perform progress exams, keeping you updated on your pet’s condition. We know you’re going to worry, but your pet is in good hands at BVH!

Osteoarthritis Management

Degenerative joint disease, also known as osteoarthritis (OA), is ranked as the top cause of chronic pain and inflammation in both dogs and cats. Whether from natural development of a poor joint or a past injury, arthritis is the direct result of a stressed joint over a long period of time. Unfortunately, the majority of OA conditions cannot be reversed, even with surgical intervention. Treatment then focuses on taking preventative measures to slow down the progression of the disease and relieve pain.

Fortunately, there are many products such as oral and injectable medications, special diets, weight management, and nutraceuticals to help control symptoms. Our veterinarians and highly trained staff treat each patient with individualized care and attention, taking a multi-modal approach for each pet to determine what combination of therapies will work best.

Dermatology

Allergies, infections, hormonal disorders, and parasites such as fleas and mites are among the most common skin problems in cats and dogs. Dermatological issues can often be difficult to treat and usually get worse if not treated promptly. A simple medical exam is often all that is needed to diagnose most skin problems. Depending on the exam results and your pet’s symptoms, our veterinarians may also run bloodwork, check a urinalysis, or do a skin scraping or skin biopsy to further diagnose the issue.

Weight Management

Obesity is a serious health condition that will affect your pet both physically and behaviorally. Typically, obesity develops when a cat or dog takes in more calories than their body needs. Sometimes medical issues such as hypothyroidism can also contribute to a pet’s obesity. Pets with obesity often pant excessively and can be reluctant to exercise. As overweight pets get older they will suffer sooner from arthritis and mobility issues.

To diagnose pets with obesity, we use various weight charts, body scoring techniques, and lab work when necessary. We then develop a treatment plan specifically for you to manage your pet’s weight, including monitoring caloric intake, prescription diets, as well as a customized exercise plan.

Cardiology

While it’s typically older pets that experience heart problems, such issues can be found in pets of all ages. Heart disease is a life-threatening condition, but early diagnosis and proper therapy can lengthen your pet’s life expectancy significantly. In fact, if diagnosed in its very early stages, certain forms of heart disease can even be cured. Advanced heart disease can lead to congestive heart failure, a condition in which the heart is no longer able to pump blood effectively. Many heart conditions can be found during a physical exam, and further diagnostic testing can then be done to determine the cause and aid in choosing the best treatment.

Endocrinology

Your pet’s endocrine system consists of many tissues and glands responsible for releasing hormones throughout their bloodstream. Hormones regulate growth and development, reproduction, and metabolism, and if the hormonal balance is disturbed by an autoimmune disease or tumor, your pet could develop an endocrine disorder. The most common endocrine disorders found in cats and dogs include hyperthyroidism, hypothyroidism, diabetes mellitus, Addison’s disease (hypoadrenocorticism), and Cushing’s disease (hyperadrenocorticism). Detecting these potentially life threatening disorders early is extremely important in both dogs and cats so that the symptoms can be managed with a proper treatment plan.
