Our staff will get a chance to talk to you and see if you are having any trouble with your pet. We will also go over diet, preventative medicine, and exercise to ensure that your pet is as healthy as possible. Then, one of our veterinarians will do a complete physical examination on your pet. It is always good to have a baseline in case your pet ever becomes ill. We also want to monitor your pet’s weight, ensuring that your pet stays a healthy weight. It is much easier to start a diet when a pet is a pound overweight instead of fifteen! Our veterinarian will also look for any potential problems. Our goal is to catch any problems before they become major ones. The sooner that we are able to catch a problem, the easier it is to treat it and the more likely that your pet will make a full recovery!
Preventative Health Care
Regular checkups allow us to establish a baseline in your pet’s health and make us aware of any changes that may indicate future problems. We highly recommend bringing your pet in for regular exams. Often times health problems that go undetected can become more serious issues when left untreated, so checkups are important even when your pet appears healthy.
We believe in utilizing the highest level of medical technology, and our surgeons are experienced and highly trained. We also realize that it can be stressful to have your pet undergo surgery. We want to assure you that your pet is in good hands, and that we will do everything to provide the best care possible. We will communicate with you about the things you need to know before, during, and after your pet’s surgery. It is our goal to make the entire process go smoothly, and to eliminate the stress and worry of surgical procedures.
We are proud to offer orthopedic surgical procedures for injuries and conditions to soft tissue areas of your pet’s’ body. We utilize state-of-the-art diagnostic imaging to enhance our capabilities for soft tissue surgery, ensuring that your pet has access to the highest standard of veterinary medicine.
Laser surgery uses a beam of a certain wavelength of light to cut tissue instead of using a scalpel blade. Because our surgeons are highly skilled, they can control the amount of light used, which gives them extreme surgical precision.
Our surgical team is highly trained and experienced in soft tissue orthopedic procedures, so you can rest assured that your pet is in good hands. We promise to communicate with you throughout the process and make your pets’ surgery as stress-free as possible.
Laboratory Services, In-house and Referral
Our hospital provides a wide variety of in-house diagnostic testing with the most state of the art technology available. It is our goal to provide your pet with the highest level of care possible, and our diagnostic tools help us do that.
Glacial Lakes Veterinary is proud to have an ultrasound in our hospital. It is our goal to offer our patients the very best veterinary care we can. We are proud of our state-of-the-art equipment, which allows us to diagnose and treat your pets quickly and efficiently.
Ultrasounding is a quick and painless procedure. It uses sound waves to allow us to see inside your pets, without using the harmful radiation produced when we take x-rays. We are pleased to be able to offer ultrasounds, along with all of our other diagnostic tools, to help your sick pets start to feel better soon. The quicker we can find the problem, the sooner your pets will be back to their normal selves.
It has always been our goal to give our clients the very best care. To do this, we are constantly learning new things and working hard to keep our equipment up to date. One way we give your pets the best care is with digital radiology. It is quick. We can often see the images seconds after we take the films. It also saves time because we don’t have to repeat films if they are too dark or too light. We can simply change the contrast!
When your pets are not feeling well, we might recommend radiographs. They allow us to see what is going on inside your pets without surgery. We are able to get amazing pictures using digital radiology.
Pet Food Distributors
A balanced diet is very important to every pet. When pets are young, you want to make sure that you are giving them enough quality food so that they grow nice and strong. When they are adults, you want to continue feeding them enough quality food so that their bones and joints stay healthy. Once pets become seniors, they are more likely to have issues with their muscles, joints, and bones. It is very critical that they receive the correct nutrients to prevent diseases and any issues.
We understand that you care about your pet’s’ health, which is why we are proud to offer pet goods and supplies to you. We offer pet food, and we also carry supplements and treats. These supplements can be taken if our friendly and compassionate veterinarian is noticing any issues in your pet and you need to ensure that there is more of a specific vitamin in his or her diet. The treats that are in our office are all healthier and better quality than the ones you pick up at the store. Your pet really will notice a difference.
