FREE - Initial Wellness Exams for New Clients!
We recommend routine annual exams on all canine, feline, rabbit and guinea pig patients. Many of the diseases we see are preventable or best treated if caught at an early stage. Geriatric patients may need to be seen as often as every 3-6 months to best monitor their changing bodies. Most of our patients come at least one other time (besides the wellness visit) during the year for medical issues that arise.
We base our vaccine protocols on the recommendation of national veterinary boards such as the American Animal Hospital Association and the Feline Board of Practitioners. Each patient has a vaccine schedule tailored to that patient that depends on risk factors and the health of that patient. Vaccines are only given with owner consent.
Our veterinarians perform most of the surgeries needed by our patients. Common surgeries include spays, neuters, tumor removal, foreign body removal, cystotomies, and abdominal exploratories. Special cases may necessitate referral to a specialist. Occasionally we have a specialist come to our hospital to perform surgery.
We routinely have outside specialists come to perform ultrasounds and endoscopy for our patients. These specialists are board certified in internal medicine, so they provide us for a valuable second opinion on difficult cases.
Our brand new dental equipment allows us to provide state of the art dental care to our patients. We perform routine prophylactic scaling and polishing as well as extractions and more complicated oral surgeries. Dental disease is a common and often painful condition. We consider the ability to provide our pets with healthy mouths as one of the great gifts of modern veterinary medicine.
Our veterinarians are well trained in emergency medicine. Common emergencies we see are pets that have been hit by a car, poison ingestion, bite wounds, lacerations and foreign body ingestion. We see emergencies during our regular business hours. For after hour emergencies, our answering machine directs our patients to Tufts Veterinary Hospital in North Grafton, BluePearl Veterinary Partners in Waltham and Angell Animal Medical Center in Boston.
We offer a wide variety of specialty foods to meet the needs of our patients. Many diseases such as heart disease, urinary tract disease, food allergy and obesity require special dietary consideration.
We offer boarding exclusively for our own patients at the Southborough Veterinary Hospital.
We do not have a certified groomer on staff. However, we do commonly provide grooming services for pets that are not amenable to traditional grooming. We commonly clip heavily matted cats or animals that require a little sedation. Haircuts are performed at owner’s risk.
