Advanced Veterinary Care Offers a Wide Range of Services
At Advanced Veterinary Care, we provide our clients and their pets with a vast array of veterinary services. Below are some of the services we offer with explanations showing how these services can positively impact your pet’s veterinary care.
Idexx direct digital radiography allows for fast image acquisition and viewing. This is of particular importance with critical patients so that as little time as possible is required to obtain images when a patient is in distress. The images obtained are of the best available quality in order to provide the most accurate diagnoses.
Electrosurgery allows the veterinary surgeon to control hemorrhage through the use of electrocautery, thereby limiting patient blood loss and making surgical procedures safer for the patient. It can also be used to make incisions (electroscalpel), giving the surgeon more precise control than conventional scalpel blades. Electrofulgaration can cauterize larger areas, such as tumor beds, allowing the surgeon to destroy potentially malignant tumor cells.
Endoscopy can be used in certain circumstances as a minimally invasive way to avoid surgery. It can sometimes be used to retrieve ingested gastric foreign bodies without having to surgically open the animal. It can be used to look into any hollow organ including the esophagus, trachea, stomach, upper small intestines, and colon enabling the veterinarian to visually inspect the tissue and even take biopsy samples.
