Goodwater Animal Hospital prides itself on the quality of veterinary medicine that your dog or cat will receive at our hospital. We truly care about our clients and our patients and we will do what we need to do to make sure your visit is a pleasant one.
General Veterinary Services
We provide well checks, diagnostic exams, vaccinations, and heart worm, leukemia, and FIV testing. Preventative care is the basis of our practice and enhances the quality of life for your pets. We also offer comprehensive dentistry, prescription diets, bathing, and day boarding for our clients.
Regular professional teeth cleaning is important to maintaining your pet's health. We use modern and safe equipment to clean each tooth thoroughly and to create a smooth surface more resistant to plaque buildup.
Vaccinations are important for your pet, each and every year. Vaccinations, or immunizations, prepare your pet's body to ward off illness and disease, as well as keep your family healthy.
Acupuncture is the stimulation of the body with small metal needles and has been around for thousands of years. Acupuncture is a means of helping the body heal itself. Acupuncture can help your pet with pain, arthritis, nerve damage, recurrent issues and disease, and so much more.
Microchips have helped reunite thousands of pets with their families. About the size of a grain of rice, microchipping your pet is an inexpensive, safe and effective way for your pet to come should you ever be separated.
All pets benefit from a balanced diet. Our trained staff are here to help you choose the right food, navigate labels, and make sure that your pet has the right food, amount, and exercise to be happy and healthy.
Dogs and cat feel discomfort and pain just as humans do and is essential for good veterinary care. Our staff is trained in recognizing symptoms of pain and knowing how we can help alleviate it so that your pet is comfortable and can recover as quickly as possible.
Goodwater Animal Hospital stocks a large variety of veterinary drugs and medications that pets may need to feel better or heal. Having an in-house pharmacy means we can get your pet his or her needed medications quickly.
When traveling with a pet, you may be required to obtain a health certificate to prove your dog or cat is healthy enough to travel. Health certificates have a small window in which they are still valid, so plan accordingly! Call us if you have any questions regarding your pets upcoming travel and any needs for the comfort of their journey.
Saying goodbye to a long-time friend is painful. We work with clients to ensure that they can say goodbye in peace, and their pet can pass to the rainbow bridge with comfort and dignity.
Hospice / End-of-Life Care
Radiology - or X-rays - help our veterinarians evaluate muscular, skeletal, gastrointestinal, reproductive, cardiopulmonary, and urinary systems. This helps our staff diagnose your pet faster, and can get them into a treatment plan that gets them back on their feet.
Goodwater Animal Hospital has an in-house laboratory. With this equipment, we are able to run blood tests, complete blood counts (CBCs), blood chemistry panels, and urinalysis quickly. These fast and accurate tests are an important part of an effective treatment plan and our pledge to quality medicine.
Advanced Veterinary Services
Our experienced veterinarians provide soft-tissue surgery procedures for your dogs or cat. This can be routine surgery such as spays, neuters, mass removals, exploratory, abdominal, and minor trauma surgery. We take pride in making sure your pet is monitored and safe during their surgical procedure.
This non-invasive, state-of-the-art technology uses sound waves to painlessly examine specific internal organs and see things that x-rays cannot.
Laser therapy is an excellent way to help your pet feel better and heal more quickly. This painless, non-invasive tool helps your pet's body work faster and better at the healing process or treating pain, such as arthritis.
An echocardiogram is used as a diagnostic tool to help out veterinarians visualize your pet's heart structure. Echocardiograms provide information about the health and function of the heart, such as size and thickness.
OFA X-rays are used to help determine canine hip dysplasia, which can develop because of an abnormally developed hip joint or cartilage damage. Over time, this can result in pain and lameness. These x-rays can help determine a the grade of your pet's dysplasia, as well as be used to certify that a dog is in good condition for breeding.
We offer tonometry as part of our ophthalmology services. When your pet's eyes are checked during an exam, they may warrant a closer look. Our tonopen is used to calculate the pressure of the fluid within the eye. If you notice red, irritated eyes, if your pet has suffered head/eye trauma, or if your pet is being monitored for glaucoma/cataracts, please give us a call.
