Derry Road Animal Hospital - Veterinary Services
Because of the shorter lifespan of our pets, Derry Road Animal Hospital in Mississauga stresses the importance of a Comprehensive Annual Physical Examination (CAPE). Thorough check-ups and preventive care can help alleviate serious health problems. We offer a wide range of veterinary services to keep your companions feeling their best:
Diagnostic and Therapeutic Services: Our hospital is equipped to provide diagnostic and therapeutic services to care for your pets' complete health care needs.
Surgical Services: Our surgical suite provides for the performance of a wide variety of surgical procedures. Referral to a board certified surgeon is available for complex cases.
Anesthesia: We utilize the safest available anesthetics to provide an extra margin of safety, especially for our older or high-risk patients. The patient's vital signs are monitored during all anesthetic procedures by both an anesthetic monitoring device and a Registered Veterinary Technician. Maintenance of patient body temperature is critical and we accomplish this with a warm water circulating blanket and Bair Hugger warm air heating system.
Internal medicine consults: We offer in-hospital referrals to an internal medicine specialist who performs ultrasound, endoscopic procedures and consults with us on the diagnosis of more complicated cases.
Radiology Services: Our on-site X-ray equipment provides radiographs to aid in the diagnosis of many disorders.
Electrocardiography Services: We provide ECG services on-site as well as consultations with cardiology specialists.
Dentistry: Our dental services include teeth cleaning and polishing, dental X-rays, tooth extractions and oral surgery.
Laboratory: While we provide some on-site diagnostic services, we also utilize commercial veterinary laboratories for specialized diagnostics and consultations.
Permanent Identification: We offer Microchip identification and implantation.
Pharmacy: We maintain an inventory of pharmaceuticals, vitamins, shampoos, flea and tick control products and heartworm preventatives to meet the needs of your pet. We also carry a full line of prescription diets.
Individualized Flea Control Programs: We develop programs for the specific needs of your pet and your own particular environmental situation. We will review with you the best ways to control fleas in your house, in your yard and on your pet.
Dietary Counseling: We will provide guidance regarding your pet's nutritional needs for each life stage, including dietary requirements for growth, weight maintenance and performance.
Behavioral Counseling: We can provide advice regarding the correction of problems such as excessive barking, chewing, spraying, scratching, digging, house soiling and aggression.
