Our Preventative Care program begins with an owner-doctor consultation and evaluation of your pet’s individual needs. After each annual exam, your doctor will prescribe vaccinations and screening tests based on your pet’s age and risk factors. To ensure the best care begins as soon as possible, Bloomingdale Animal Hospital (BAH) offers a complete in-house laboratory for immediate diagnostic testing.
At BAH, we take great care to ensure your pet is anesthetized safely and for the minimum time required for surgery. We use a combination of the latest and safest local anesthetics, pain management drugs, and gas anesthesia to maximize safety and comfort. For short procedures, we utilize reversible anesthetics to avoid hospitalization.
Our hospital features experienced surgical doctors and staff who perform a range of soft tissue surgeries on a daily basis. Each patient is individually monitored by a doctor and trained technician. During surgery, the heart rate, ECG, oxygen level, and respiration rate are carefully observed on the latest and most proven electronic tools. A technician remains with each patient until full recovery.
The risk of periodontal disease and gingivitis are the same for animals as they are for people. There is no reason to believe that animals do not feel the same pain from sore gums and problem teeth as people do. Our preventative program includes thorough oral exams utilizing dental radiographs, teeth cleaning and polishing. We also perform both routine and surgical extractions.
Our digital radiographs produce high quality images in seconds. The process is painless and exposure time is minimal.The images can be interpreted on-site by a doctor and sent electronically to a consulting radiologist or referral practice when necessary. In addition to being faster and easier for our patients, digital radiography provides us with a level of detail traditional x-rays cannot match.
Digital ultrasound provides our doctors with an immediate diagnostic tool. At BAH, we utilize ultrasound to diagnose many conditions that radiographs alone cannot identify. This equipment is used to evaluate all the abdominal organs and has proven to identify and differentiate many various heart conditions.
