We strongly recommend bringing your pet in for a comprehensive physical examination every six months to assure that if your pet has some health problems, they can be detected and treated at an early stage. Many factors play essential role in the disease process.
During an examination, the doctor will check different systems and organs of your pet for any abnormalities, such as:
- Cardiovascular system
- Gastrointestinal system
- Nervous system
- Respiratory system
- Urinary system
- Teeth and Gums
The veterinarian may ask you questions regarding your pet’s past condition to fully evaluate your pet’s health. The most important role in your pet’s condition is your answers that you give to the doctor. It will help the veterinarian to diagnose and treat your pet. We also provide extended examinations if needed for our patients. Regular examination is essential for your pet’s health and we will do our best to give a lot of attention to any specific health concerns you might have regarding your pet.
Digital radiography is one of the hottest in veterinary medicine. The technology encompasses computer radiography, direct digital radiography and charge couple devices, and offers many obvious benefits! We will examine your pet with the latest technology available to vet hospitals in the area. Copper Ridge Animal Hospital truly is Advanced Pet Care!
Ultrasound is a safe, non-invasive tool allowing visualization of tissues not otherwise possible. CRAH has abdominal scan, echocardiography with Color Flow, and Doppler capabilities
Our advanced radiowave technology aids us in declawing and mass removals.
Regular dental prophylaxis or cleanings is one of the most important procedures for your pet and their well being. When plaque and tartar are present on teeth and under gums it creates foul mouth odor, can cause gum disease, and eventually will lead to heart problems. Every comprehensive physical examination in our hospital includes a thorough dental exam. If we find any abnormalities in your pet’s mouth we will recommend a treatment plan in order to improve the overall health of your pet.
Microchip implantation is the quickest way to help reunite pets and their lost owners. Shelters are already overcrowded, so lost pets can only be kept for a short period of time. Millions of pets get lost every year and shelters do their very best to locate owners. Unfortunately, if your pet has no form of identification there’s not much they can do. A tiny microchip that fits through a hypodermic needle contains a personal; one-of-a-kind identification number can save your pet’s life!
Skin diseases are very common in veterinary medicine. Many cases are chronic and it can be very difficult to find the source of the problem. Allergies are the most seen problems in skin conditions, but diagnosis is often difficult and may take time to find right treatment(s). Many skin diseases cause intense itching and scratching which leads to further skin damage and hair loss. At Copper Ridge Animal Hospital we will determine the instigating cause of the skin problem and with correct diagnosis and proper therapy, can produce comfort for your pet and stop the frustration of all members of the family.
In the event that your pet requires hospitalization so that appropriate therapy and diagnostic testing can be performed, you can be assured your pet will receive the best care in the area from our professional staff at CRAH. We are a full service hospital offering the latest technology and state-of-the-art equipment. All hospitalized pets have daily physical examinations done by the veterinarian in charge and by a staff veterinary technician to monitor any change in their condition. The doctor or veterinary technician will update you with a progress report after lab work is received and all evaluations are completed on a daily basis. Open and clear communication between you and our hospital staff is very important during the hospitalization process. We take the time to explain every procedure that is necessary to care for your pet. If any changes occur in your pet’s condition, we will call you as soon as possible. After business hours, veterinary service is provided as necessary in the judgment of the veterinarian in charge.
At Copper Ridge we care for your pet the way we would want our own pets to be cared for. If the need of hospitalization for your pet arrived, we will make your pet’s stay as comfortable as possible.
The in-house laboratory at CRAH is a very essential diagnostic tool which helps us to diagnose and monitor your pet’s health. In conjunction with outside laboratories we are able to provide accurate and prompt results for our patients. We can perform laboratory services including blood, urine, cytology, parasite testing, clinical chemistry, and have rapid results. We are dedicated to offer complete laboratory services to aid in the diagnosis of your pet’s health problem(s).
The staff at Copper Ridge Animal Hospital are very understanding about the importance of pets. When a pet dies, it is as if a friend or family member dies. It doesn’t seem to matter if they are four-footed or two-footed, we still grieve for them. Let CRAH help you and your pet during this difficult time.
We have a fully equipped in-house pharmacy. It’s very important that your veterinarian has a complete supply of all medications commonly used in veterinary medicine. This allows you to take your pet’s medication home with you after your appointment. We try to carry wide range of drugs that your pet will need, including medications to control flea and tick problems, internal parasites, and medicated shampoos. If your pet ever needs a medication that we do not carry, we will find this medication for you quickly. When you need a refill on a prescription for your pet, you can call our front desk and pick up the medication at your convenience. We want you to have healthy pets and the in-stock pharmacy of CRAH will assist you along the way!
