General Surgery

Our highly skilled veterinary team is experienced in the most common surgical procedures. We perform spays and neuters, declaws, tumor removal, abdominal surgeries, and some orthopedic procedures, all under the safest possible anesthetic and with the utmost attention to patient monitoring. After each surgical procedure, surgery patients are monitored by a veterinary technician with a doctor on call at all times. We strive to make our patients and their families as comfortable as possible, from your pre-surgical consultation to your pet’s dismissal and aftercare. We’re with you every step of the way, applying our commitment and expertise to ensure a safe procedure and a speedy recovery.
 

Dentistry

Dental disease is an often-overlooked threat to the comfort and health of your pet. Because dental disease often has few readily apparent signs, bringing your pet in for a wellness examination is the only way to ensure detection. Following this exam, your veterinarian may recommend a particular dental cleaning schedule, oral care routine, or special treatment based on your pet’s dental health needs. We also use dental X-rays to fully examine your pet’s oral and dental health.

How will dental care benefit my pet?
  • Reduced plaque and tartar
  • Decreased oral infections
  • Helps prevent bad breath
  • Helps prevent heart, liver, and kidney disease as caused by dental disease

Radiology

Radiographs, which are commonly known as X-rays, are used to evaluate injuries and conditions which require more than external examination. Radiology equipment gives us a non-evasive way to observe your pet’s internal physiology so that we can provide a more thorough and accurate diagnosis. Our veterinarians use radiographs to detect bone fractures, bladder stones, and tumors, soft tissue problems (those related to the heart, stomach, intestines, reproductive, and urinary systems) as well as to locate swallowed foreign objects such as toys or rocks. 

The imaging procedure is completely painless and can be performed on calm and cooperative pets without sedation. Your veterinarian may administer a sedative or general anesthesia in cases where a dog or cat has trouble becoming fully relaxed naturally.

  • Your pet may have to be dropped off for the day if X-rays are necessary. However, we can often have X-rays taken immediately and have the information we need in urgent situations.
  • Copies of X-rays can be burned onto a CD and viewed on any computer at the owner’s request.

In some cases, patients do need light sedation or general anesthesia. Your veterinarian will discuss this with you prior to the procedure taking place.

 

In-House Laboratory

Our in-house laboratory allows us to perform many types of testing that can aid in the diagnosis and treatment of your pet. Our state-of-the-art, in-house laboratory equipment allows us to diagnose your pet 24 hours a day in most cases. We are able to perform these diagnostic tests for our veterinarians while your pet is being treated on an outpatient or hospitalized basis.

We are able to perform many tests as they are needed for your pet’s care, including:

  • Blood tests
  • Urine tests
  • Skin scrapes
  • Test for viruses
  • Heartworm disease
  • Fecal examinations (testing for the presence of hookworms, whipworms, tapeworms, and roundworms)
  • Ear cytology
  • Mass cytology
  • Skin cytology
  • Complete blood counts
  • Chemistries

We also utilize an outside laboratory for performing urine and skin cultures. This outside laboratory can provide us with quick results for a wide variety of diseases, including the following types of tests:

  • Bacterial cultures
  • Fungal cultures
  • Comprehensive thyroid panels
  • Tick panels
  • Vaccine titers
  • Cytology
  • Histopathology

Wellness testing can help catch many conditions early before they become serious illnesses. Be sure to ask your veterinarian about which tests your pet may need during your pet’s next wellness exam.

 

Wellness Examinations

At Tram Road Animal Hospital, we feel that it is extremely important for the veterinarian to examine your pet annually.

During this annual visit, the veterinarian will perform the following:

  • Comprehensive physical examination
  • Intestinal parasite screening
  • Heartworm testing
  • Junior Wellness Lab panel
  • Dental examination
  • Vaccination update
  • Discussion of nutrition, behavior, and any pet owner questions

We believe that all pets gain significant health benefits from annual wellness exams. The wellness evaluations give your veterinarian an opportunity to minimize potential health risks through early detection and treatment.

 

Preventative Care/Products

Today, most aspects of veterinary medicine are geared toward preventative care. We believe proactive preventative care not only will improve the quality of your pet’s life but will add years to it. Our Preventative Healthcare provides disease prevention and early diagnosis. We can help recommend products that will also fit your pet’s needs to achieve a long and healthy life.
