In House Pharmacy & Lab
The Pharmacy is well stocked with the latest and most effective drugs, as well as the tried and true ones in use for years. Our veterinary team will thoroughly discuss your pet’s medications, including dosing, and potential side effects. We look for opportunities to make your pet’s medication regimen as convenient as possible. Controlled substances are kept in an AAHA-approved double-locked special security cabinet, requring special clearance and recordkeeping just to unlock.
Moreover, our Lab is equipped with machines for bloodwork on the spot. The VetScan HM5 is a fully-automated, five-part differential hematology analyzer displaying a comprehensive 22-parameter complete blood count (CBC) with cellular histograms on an easy-to-read touch-screen. Its superior performance, elegant design, ease of use, true database management capability, and minimal maintenance make it the optimal hematology system for all of our patients needs. A binocular microscope for examining skin scrapings, ear swabs, urine and fecal samples and a more powerful microscope is used for cytology, slides, and special studies is also located in this area.
The Pack Preparation Area has both an ultrasonic cleaner as well as a scrub sink and first-rate autoclave. There is plenty of storage to hold all the special instruments for the wide variety of surgeries that we do. This area has a washer/dryer pair that is used only for surgical gowns and drapes.
