Internal Medicine: Healthy, functioning internal organs are critical to your pet’s health. With our lab and diagnostic equipment, we can diagnose and treat many diseases relating to your pet’s internal organs and systems.
Dermatology: We can treat skin conditions, which are often the result of your pet’s body reacting to environmental and internal changes.
- Treatment of allergies due to food, parasites or environment
- Ear disease
- Skin issues (blistering, hair loss, scaling, crusty, greasy, bacterial or fungal infections)
- Ectoparasites (mange mites, ear mites, ticks, fleas and mosquitoes)
- Drug reactions
- Mass removal
- Nail and nail bed infections
Endocrinology: Your pet’s body is made up of complex systems, and when they malfunction, disease or other health problems result. For example, diabetes results from the malfunction of your pet’s endocrine system. Other system disorders include Addison’s disease, Cushing’s syndrome, hyperthyroidism and hypothyroidism.
Gastroenterology: We can diagnosis and treat diseases of the esophagus, stomach, small intestine and large intestine (colon), liver, gallbladder and pancreas, such as inflammatory bowel disease, gastrointestinal ulcers and cancer. Our endoscopic (minimally invasive) procedures visualize the gastrointestinal tract and allow us to obtain biopsies and retrieve foreign bodies.
Ophthalmology: Injuries from objects striking the eyes or chemicals coming in contact with your pet’s eyes are serious and should be seen by Aldie Vet immediately. Less serious eye infections are usually treated with medication.
- Comprehensive eye exams including Schirmer Tear Test
- Fluorescein staining
- Rebound tonometry
- Indirect ophthalmoscopy
- Treatment of eye conditions and diseases (glaucoma)
Cardiology: Heart problems are often found during a physical exam. If your pet needs additional testing, we can perform radiographs (x-rays) and ultrasound tests on-site. For certain heart conditions, we will collaborate with a veterinary cardiologist to provide the best treatment plan for your pet.
Anesthesia: We use safe anesthetics to provide an extra margin of safety, especially for our high-risk patients. Vital signs are monitored at all times by one of our licensed veterinary technicians, using ECG, Pulse Oximetry, as well as blood pressure monitoring before, during and after all anesthetic procedures.
Pain Management: We ensure your pet is kept comfortable before, during and after any procedure, routine or major. We start anesthetic procedures by giving your pet an injection of pain medication and then monitor your anesthetized pet closely to be sure their pain is managed. When your pet goes home, oral pain medication may be prescribed to ensure recovery is pain-free.
DSVC also offers acupuncture as a service to complement pain management. Ask our veterinarian trained in acupuncture to discuss your pet’s condition to determine if acupuncture is an option for you.
