At Grace Animal Hospital your pets become our pets. Our goal is to treat them as one of the family.
Grace Animal Hospital takes care of all stages of your pet’s life. From the precious 5 ounce newborn kitten to the febile 200 pound senior great dane, Grace Animal Hospital has their best interest at heart. Wellness care encompasses the “an ounze of prevention is worth a pound of cure” philosophy. Given the nature of animals to hide their illness even in the face of extreme sickness and the rate of aging of our pets, it is best to be proactive in their health rather than reactive. Wellness care includes routine physical exams, targeted core vaccinations, routine blood work screening, and risk assessment based on breed.
As your veterinarian, it is our responsibility to cover all areas of your pets health. Pets present with all sorts of medical problems from diarrhea and vomiting, to excessive thirst and panting. Since our patients can’t tell us where it hurts, it is our responsibility to use all of our skills and training to diagnose the problem. Grace Animal Hospital uses the latest diagnostic equipment, tests, special consultants, referrals, and personalized service to have your pet on its feet again in no time.
Dr.Sprinkles and Grace Animal Hospital strives to meet all your veterinary needs. From routine spays and neuters, to more complex orthopedic procedures for broken bones and torn ligaments, these surgeries are done right in our office.
Studies have proven two things in the area of pet dentistry. One is that proper care of your pets teeth can and will add years to your pet’s life. The second startling conclusion made from research is that pet dentistry is one of the most underserved areas of veterinary medicine. Grace Animal Hospital prides itself in not missing the little things that if let unattended could greatly diminish the quality and years of your pet’s life.
Itchy pet? Give us a call. Skin diseases in pets rank year after year as one the most common problems seen in veterinary medicine. Common causes of itchy skin range from seasonal and nonseasonal allergies, mites, bacterial and fungal causes, to more serious metabolic problems. Grace Animal Hospital taylors a plan to meet your pet needs. Only after first making the proper diagnosis of the cause of the problem, can the treatment begin. We focus on treating the problem, not just the symptoms.
Behavioral problems come in all shapes and sizes. Destructive chewing, aggression, inappropriate urination, potty training, and so forth can often be very challenging. One of the most common reasons for pet abandonment at animal shelters is directly related to behavioral issues. We can develop a plan that not only encompasses prevention, but also treatment (environmental and pharmacological) of many types of behavioral problems.
Grace Animal Hospital provides overnight hospitalization and care of those pets whose needs require overnight care in a hospital environment.
Grace Animal Hospital has a complete in-house lab facility capable of getting most lab results in a matter of minutes, not days. Complete chemistry panels, complete blood counts, viral tests, heartworm tests, fecal exams, urinalysis, cytology exams, and so forth are all done while you wait.
Our radiology suite allows us to perform complete radiologic exams without having to send your pet to a different location. Whether it be broken bones to a missing chew toy, we can see it all with our ability to radiograph (x-ray) your pet.
