The foundation of all medicine is wellness. At Andover Animal Hospital, we provide comprehensive wellness examinations throughout your pet's life, and believe this is the most important service we can offer you and your pet. From puppy/kitten-hood through adult and senior years, we educate our clients on health concerns unique to their pet's life stage and breed.
From routine services such as vaccinations, parasite screening, behavioral/training consultations, and heart-worm preventatives, to more complex issues such as injuries and illness, our experience, compassion, and trusted client relationships ensure optimal health throughout your pet's life.
In-house diagnostic technology includes hematology and chemistry equipment, state-of-the-art digital radiography, cardiac and abdominal ultrasound capability, a microscope for skin and ear cytologies and intestinal parasite evaluation, testing for lyme, anaplasma, heartworm, feline leukemia, and feline immunodeficiency virus, screening for pancreatitis, and blood pressure monitoring.
We regularly utilize outside reference laboratories as needed for more specialized testing, including cytology, biopsy, endocrine, allergy, and ECG. We are fortunate to have board-certified radiologists, oncologists, pathologists, internal medicine specialists, surgeons, ophthalmologists, and nutritionists available for consultation.
We provide a wide range of surgical services at our hospital, including spays and neuters, ruptured cruciate ligament repair, cystotomies (bladder stone removal), and mass removals, as well as emergency services such as laceration repair and foreign body removal. Anesthetic protocols are customized to your pet's particular needs, and pre-anesthetic bloodwork is recommended.
To help ensure the safety and comfort of your pet during their surgical procedure, our facility utilizes proper sterilization techniques; surgical monitoring including pulse oximetry, blood pressure, and ECG; heat to keep your pet warm; intravenous fluids if needed to keep your pet hydrated; extra pain medications; and close post-surgical monitoring.
Certified/Registered Veterinary Technicians and trained veterinary assistants provide attentive nursing care for your pet before, during and after their procedure.
