General Practice Services At St. Charles Veterinary Hospital,
At St. Charles Veterinary Hospital, we understand that pets of all species and ages deserve tailored healthcare. From playful puppy and kitten visits to compassionate geriatric exams, we cover every stage of your pet's life journey. Our comprehensive wellness visits ensure that each furry, feathery, or scaly friend receives the specialized care they need at every milestone.
FULL IN HOUSE DIAGNOSTICS AND DIGITAL RADIOGRAPHY
If your pet is sick or injured, and immediate results are needed, we have a variety of in house diagnostic equipment including a full blood lab and digital x-rays that can have results within minutes. We also can use telemedicine to have a specialist review your pet’s case without ever having to leave the hospital!
We perform a variety of soft tissue surgery. To ensure safety, all surgical patients are watched by properly trained technicians and state of the art monitoring equipment. We also have a CO2 laser available.
IN HOUSE PHARMACY
We offer a complete inventory of medications to meet your pet’s needs, as well as prescription diets.
We take pain management very seriously. We employ preventative pain management strategies by using local anesthetics, anti-inflammatory drugs, and other analgesic medication for all surgical procedures. We also employ appropriate pain management protocols specifically tailored to your pet’s needs.
PROGRESSIVE DENTAL CARE
We provide an extensive dental care program that uses the safest anesthesia available in conjunction with advanced monitoring, IV fluids, full mouth digital x-rays, extractions, ultrasonic scaling, probing and polishing to ensure that your pet receives the best possible oral care.
In addition to dogs and cats, we treat birds, ferrets, rabbits, rodents, and other exotic pets. We can advise you about maintaining a proper environment and diet for your exotic animal.
We offer multi wavelength laser therapy with our in-house K-Laser unit. Laser therapy increases circulation, drawing water, oxygen, and nutrients to the damaged area. This creates an optimal healing environment that reduces inflammation, swelling, muscle spasms, stiffness, and pain.
