Services

Wellness Exam

At Border Animal Hospital, we truly believe that regular examinations are vital to your pet’s overall health. It allows our veterinarians to evaluate your pet’s overall well-being, while learning more about you and your pet(s).

With routine examinations, our veterinarians will thoroughly examine your pets. This will also ensure they stay up to date on vaccinations and other preventative care that is important for good health, such as heartworm prevention and regular deworming.

Our hope with routine examinations is that we can catch potential problems before they become serious ones.

Imaging

Ultrasounds

At Border Animal Hospital we offer state-of-the-art medical technology. One of the diagnostic tools we use is ultrasound, which creates images of the inner workings of the body.

Ultrasound uses sound waves to offer a non-invasive, painless, and radiation-free method of imaging your pets’ internal organs. Providing this service is one of the many ways that we show how dedicated we are to providing your pet with the best care possible.

By using ultrasound, we have yet another powerful tool at our disposal to detect, diagnose, and prevent illness in your pet.

X-rays

We are proud to be on the cutting edge of medical technology. Radiology is a technique and diagnostic tool we use to look inside the body in an entirely non-invasive way. X-rays allow us to create images of all the body’s organs. In other words, the use of radiology gives us a view of the internal organs in your pet’s body that we otherwise could not see. It’s a valuable diagnostic tool that helps veterinarians detect and prevent illnesses.

Dentals

Dental care is vital to the overall health of any pet. Dental disease can lead to health issues with the heart, liver, and kidneys, and can affect the entire body through the bloodstream. In fact, 80 percent of dogs and 70 percent of cats over three years of age suffer from some form of dental disease, making it the most common pet health issue among our pet population.

In spite of these disturbing facts, many pet owners are not aware of the importance of dental care to their pets’ health. The most effective way to protect your pet from dental disease is through professional cleanings. We perform thorough cleanings as dental X-rays here at Border Animal Hospital, including the area beneath the gums that you can’t see or access at home.
