Specialty Blood Testing

Lyme Disease and Heartworm in dogs and Feline Aids & Leukemia in cats are common in our area. We strongly recommend our in-clinic ten minute testing. These diseases may have infected your pet and not be symptomatic. Treating, vaccinating and starting your pet on preventatives may prevent a lot of heartache and additional expense.

Tail Docking & Dewclaw removal (puppies only)

 


Fecal Examinations for Parasites

We highly recommend this diagnostic procedure in conjunction with your pets annual exam and vaccinations especially if your pet spends time outdoors in the presence of other pets or farm animals.

Pre-Surgical Blood Testing

We require a complete blood screen prior to dental procedures and all surgeries when your pet is over the age of five. For spay or neuter surgery blood work is recommended but not mandatory. Blood work helps us identify potential underlying condition that might adversely affect your pet under sedation and anesthesia.

Dental Care

Good dental health is critical in maintaining and supporting your pets overall health. We offer complete dental care that includes routine screening, preventative care, cleaning and scaling (removing plaque) and when needed oral surgery and extractions.


Electrocardiograms

Human annual physicals as we age typically include this procedure to proactively identify any heart abnormality that could effect quality of life and longevity. Our pets are no different. We recommend that your pet receives this non-evasive test with a complete blood chemistry every year after the age of six or seven. 

Cryosurgery (using Liquid Nitrogen)

Cryosurgery is a surgical technique that uses liquid nitrogen to remove skin tags and surface growths by freezing. This procedure eliminates the need for invasive surgery and has minimal risk.

House Calls (minimum fee applies – call for more details)

At home wellness exams with vaccinations are available by appointment Monday, Tuesday and Friday afternoons. This option is suggested if you have pets that don’t travel or do well in a clinic environment, multiple pets with or without horses or simply for your convenience..

Lameness Evaluations

Dr. Calabrese has years of experience dealing with equine orthopedic injuries. He can often diagnose the reason for lameness prior to formal diagnostic procedures helping our clients make a more informed decision as to course of action.


Pre-purchase Examinations

Highly recommended when buying or selling, all visible body systems are examined to ensure overall health as well as inflection tests to determine lameness. Depending on the monetary value of the sale or purchase we offer additional diagnostics to include blood chemistry, digital x-rays, ultrasound, electro-cardiogram, drug tests or endoscopy.

Endoscopy

This minimally invasive procedure allows our veterinarians to examine the upper respiratory tract through natural openings in the body.

Fecal Examinations for Parasites

Monitoring egg counts is the best test to assess the adequacy of a worm control program in horses. These eggs are easily seen in feces and if present the horse should be dewormed at least twice a year.


Cryosurgery

This non invasive surgical procedure used liquid nitrogen to remove select lumps or alleviate lameness by freezing nerve endings.

 


What our clients say about us

So appreciative of the care and support given to my “fur baby” Waylon and me when he was both diagnosed with lymphoma and ultimately had to make his journey over the Rainbow Bridge. Truly compassionate, caring, and advised us on what was best for him so we could make the best decisions about his care. I highly recommend them for your pet care, they do care!!!

Donna Marsh

Love love them!!! My pet has many anxiety issues and they couldn’t be more patient with him!

Jodi Yaworski

What our clients say about us

We finally found a veterinary practice that feels like home.the staff are always friendly, helpful and informative. Dr Calabrese goes the extra mile to explain exactly what our dogs need and never pushes unnecessary treatments or procedures. Our dogs love going to see Doc Lou and we wouldn’t take our animals anywhere else.

Wendy Paquette

What our clients say about us

We travel some distance to see Dr. Louis Calabrese…he is always so generous with his time and advice. We are so grateful to have access to such a professional. We’ve had a kennel for 25 years and currently own and raise Siberian Huskies. We currently have several teams and frequently need Veterinary care and oversight. I would recommend Dr. Calabrese whether you have one dog or many.
