Blood Transfusions

Blood transfusions have many uses and can be critical, lifesaving procedures. Blood loss that occurs suddenly due to trauma may require an emergency transfusion to save a patient’s life. Our transfusion service allows us to provide blood and blood products for veterinary patients’ medical, surgical, or emergency needs.

Euthanasia Services

The word “euthanasia” means “good death” and is derived from the Greek words “eu” meaning good and “thanatos” meaning death. We are fortunate that the veterinary profession allows us to end pain and suffering with humane euthanasia. This can be the most difficult decision you’ll make regarding the welfare of your pet. Mountain View Veterinary Hospital is committed help you make the best decisions for your pet and your family, and we will support you before, during, and after the transition. We invite you to contact us with any questions.

You can rely on us whether your pet requires medication for a chronic medical condition or needs short-term medication while recovering from an illness, injury, or surgery. When you purchase medications from our pharmacy, you can rest assured that your pet’s medications were obtained from safe, reliable sources and stored under optimal conditions. Our trained staff will fill your prescriptions with care as well as attention to detail and your pet’s specific needs. 

Laser Therapy

Laser therapy is a drug-free, surgery-free, pain-free treatment for your pet.  This FDA cleared, deep-penetrating light allows relief of pain through the release of endorphins and stimulates the insured cells to heal at a faster rate.  Some of the disorders that respond to laser therapy are arthritis, hip dysplasia, skin conditions, post surgical pain relief and increased healing, ear infections and inflammation, wound healing, degenerative joint disease, burns and many more. For questions about this state of the art technology contact us today.


Microchipping

A microchip is a safe, simple form of identification that can significantly increase the chance that your pet will return safely. A microchip is about the size and shape of a grain of rice and is placed underneath your pet's skin between the shoulder blades. Each microchip is unique and carries vital information including your name, address, and contact information. When a microchip is implanted, the pet owner is given a registration form to complete. Veterinary hospitals, animal shelters, and animal control offices across the country are equipped with special electronic scanners that can detect the microchip and read the identification number. If a lost pet is picked up by animal control or found by a good Samaritan and presented to a veterinarian, a quick scan of the microchip reveals the identification number. 

Nutritional Counseling

It can be easy for a pet owner to become overwhelmed by the available selection of pet foods, all of which claim to have specific benefits for pets. We can offer expert advice to help you negotiate the complicated array of choices. Whether your pet has special dietary needs or simply needs to shed (or gain) a few pounds, our nutritional counseling services can help you accomplish your goals and keep your pet in good health. We offer counseling in dietary selection and feeding practices for pets during various life stages, such as growth, pregnancy, nursing, and the “golden years.” If your pet has a medical condition, we can help you select the most appropriate diet to suit your pet’s needs. So contact us today and let our nutritional counseling service help you achieve and maintain optimal nutrition for your pet.

Pain Management

Experiencing pain can affect the body’s physical functioning and can have a detrimental effect on a patient’s well-being and state of mind. That’s why pain management is among our primary considerations when we are treating a pet for any medical condition. We are dedicated to providing safe and effective pain management to every patient. We will also help you recognize signs of pain in your pet so that we can modify his or her pain management plan when necessary. Recognizing and alleviating pain in our patients is at the very heart of quality, compassionate patient care. We don’t take pain management for granted and will employ all our skills to help ensure your pet’s comfort, well-being, and full recovery.


Parasite Prevention & Control

There was a time when parasites like fleas, ticks, and roundworms were considered mostly a nuisance. Now, however, we know that parasites can cause serious illness and even death in pets. You may not always be able to tell if your pet has parasites. Fortunately, we can recommend tests to tell if your pet has parasites. We can also examine your pet for evidence of fleas, ticks, or other parasites. Our expert staff can recommend medications to help control fleas, ticks, heartworms, and intestinal parasites. Preventing parasites in your pets also helps protect children and other family members, so let’s work together to protect your pets and family. 

Puppy & Kitten Care

One of the first things you should do when you bring your new pet home is to introduce him or her to us – your veterinary care team. Puppy and kitten visits offer a unique opportunity to get you and your new pet off on the right foot! Your puppy or kitten visit will include a full “nose-to-tail” physical examination. We will look for any signs of illness and make sure that your new pet is in good health. Also, we will discuss your new pet’s recommended vaccine schedule and the best plan for parasite testing, treatment, and prevention. Our doctors and other staff members are well-educated about veterinary vaccines and parasite control, and our goal is to give you the best advice for your puppy or kitten. On top of this, we welcome your questions and look forward to addressing any concerns you may have.  So, let’s take these important first steps together. 

Radiology (X-Rays)

Radiography is a valuable diagnostic tool in veterinary medicine. As we continually strive to offer the highest quality medicine and diagnostic testing, we are pleased to offer radiology services as a means of providing excellent care to our patients. A radiograph (sometimes called an x-ray) is a type of photograph that can look inside the body and reveal information that may not be discernable from the outside. Radiography can be used to evaluate almost any organ in the body, including the heart, lungs, and abdominal organs, as well as the bones. Radiographs are an important tool that can help us make a correct diagnosis for your pet.  Our radiology service is staffed by caring, skilled professionals who will provide state-of-the-art care with compassion and expertise.


Senior Care

Older pets make wonderful companions, and thanks to advances in veterinary medicine, pets are living longer than ever! You are an important ally in your senior pet’s health care. We are here to help ensure that your pet is safe and happy throughout the “golden years. The best way to help protect your pet as he or she ages is to understand the aging process in pets. We understand that process and can help you help your pet. 

Surgery

In our continuing efforts to offer the highest quality veterinary medicine, we are pleased to provide a wide range of surgical services for our patients. From routine surgical procedures, such as spaying and neutering, to more complex surgeries, we look forward to the opportunity to care for your pet’s surgical needs. Our staff is highly skilled in performing veterinary surgeries and will make every effort to ensure that your pet receives the very best care. Our focus on patient safety, pain management, and employing the most current surgical practices is designed to exceed your expectations and put your concerns to rest. Our staff of compassionate, caring professionals will monitor your pet before, during, and after surgery and will take exceptional care to ensure a safe and complete recovery for your pet. 

Ultrasound

As a practice, one of our goals is to offer state-of-the-art medicine and diagnostic testing; so we are pleased to offer ultrasound services as a means of providing a higher level of quality care to our patients. Ultrasonography is a type of diagnostic technique that uses ultrasound waves to produce an imaging study. This means that when we perform ultrasonography, we can see internal images of the patient’s body. Unlike some other imaging studies, like x-rays, ultrasonography does not use radiation. Instead, ultrasonography uses high-frequency sound (ultrasound) waves to create a picture of what is inside your pet’s body. Ultrasonography is a completely non-invasive, painless way to diagnose and evaluate many common diseases. 


 

Vaccinations

Vaccines help pets live longer, healthier lives. Protecting your pet is our primary goal, so developing an appropriate vaccine schedule for your pet is important to us. We understand that your pet is unique and that no single vaccine program will be ideal for every pet in every situation. Our doctors and other staff members are well-educated about veterinary vaccines, and our goal is to give you the best advice for keeping your pet healthy. Let us develop a vaccination schedule and ongoing booster routine that accounts for your pet’s lifestyle, overall health, risk for exposure to infectious disease, and other factors. Call us today to set up an appointment to discuss your pet’s vaccination needs.

Wellness Exams

A wellness examination includes an evaluation of all of your pet’s major organ systems. We’ll also use the wellness visit to ask you questions about your pet’s behavior, appetite, exercise habits, and regular activities at home. This is also an excellent time for us to discuss any routine diagnostic testing that may benefit your pet or to recommend any vaccinations that may be due. If your pet seems healthy, a wellness examination is a good opportunity to note any changes, such as weight gain or loss or other subtle changes that may not be evident at home. Sometimes information obtained during a wellness examination can help detect early signs of illness and address health early.
