We have a technology that allows us to record and transmit an electrocardiogram (ECG) directly to a Board Certified Veterinary Cardiologist. There are many indications for having an ECG run on your pet, including: heart murmurs, weakness, shortness of breath, irregular heart beats, breathing disorders, and screening for heart disease before anesthesia. The main advantage of this technology is the ability to get a specialist's opinion without needing to make a trip to see one. We are also able to make a more accurate diagnosis of heart disease, allowing us to devise a more precise treatment plan. This technology has benefited many of our current patients.
We use digital xray for all of our radiograph imaging. Digital xray allows us to get better pictures, faster, and with less stress on your pet than traditional film xrays. Digital also allows us to send xray images over the internet to a Board Certified Veterinary Radiologist for review. We can have a specialist's opinion within a few hours on difficult cases. We use Petrays Veterinary Telemedicine Consultants for this service. More information on this service can be found at www.petrays.com.
We have a complete, in house, laboratory that allows us to run blood tests and have the vital information they provide within a few minutes, rather than a few days, as with an outside lab. Time is often critical when deciding a plan that best suits your pets treatment needs. Our lab allows us to meet those needs.
We have a state-of-the-art electrocautery unit to help minimize bleeding during surgery.
We use a patented system for cranial cruciate rupture repair in dogs.
We only use isoflurane gas anesthetic machines. Isoflurane gas allows us to rapidly make adjustments to an animal's anesthesia and is generally considered the safest available anesthetic.
We utilize advanced anesthetic monitoring. Our monitors include ECG, heart rate, respiratory rate, digital pulse oximetry, and body temperature to help ensure your pet's safety during an anesthetic procedure. Patients also have an IV placed and are intubated for breathing.
We have webcams set up in each of the kennel areas so the doctors can check up on their patients at night from home.
We, at Pet Haven Veterinary Clinic, will continue to keep our practice updated with the latest technologies in order to provide the best possible care for your pets.
