Our on-site laboratory provides fast and accurate test results that are necessary for the well being of your pet. Diagnostic tests provide essential information by which we can identify blood disorders, kidney and liver disease, diabetes, infection, cancer, thyroid disease and other hormonal problems. We have the same blood analyzing equipment as animal clinics located in the big cities.
Dentistry is so important to the quality and life expectancy of your pet. Signs of periodontal disease are bad breath (halitosis), reluctant to eat, chewing on one side of the mouth, dropping food, pawing at the face or rubbing the face on the floor, drooling, becoming head shy, and painful mouth/face. Periodontal disease and oral bacteria can easily affect other organ systems including the heart, liver, kidneys, lungs and brain. Our dental services include teeth cleaning and polishing, tooth extractions and oral surgery.
Lindner Hospital understands the importance of quality radiographs in the diagnosis of many conditions. So we are equipped with a state of the art x-ray machine and digital processor. Using advanced technology, our doctors are able to make the best decisions for your pet. Our on-site digital x-ray equipment allows us to make an accurate diagnosis. We can show clients clear, high quality images on our ipad.
We utilize the safest available anesthetics to provide that extra margin of safety, especially for our older or high risk patients. Using the most modern equipment, the patients’ vital signs are monitored during all anesthetic procedures. Sometimes the doctor will request a preanesthetic profile. The purpose is to evaluate cardiovascular, respiratory and general health before each procedure. Pre-anesthetic blood testing helps to determine if there are any hidden pre-existing conditions, which would result in adjustments to the type and dosage of the anesthetic.
Spay / Neuter
It is very important to bring your dog or cat in for one of these common and safe surgical procedures to help lengthen and improve the overall quality of your pet’s life. For females, spaying eliminates or greatly minimizes problems with: unwanted pregnancy, which helps prevent pet overpopulation; attraction of males during “heat” cycles; potentially life-threatening uterine infections breast and uterine cancer
For males, neutering eliminates or greatly minimizes problems with: Aggression and dominance; roaming, which helps prevent pet overpopulation; territorial marking with urine; decreases the chance of hormone related cancers.
Surgeries are performed in a sterile, fully-operational surgical room with modern anesthesia and respiratory and cardiac monitors. All instruments are sterilized through our modern autoclave machine before and after each procedure. Operating in a sterile environment decreases the chance of infection and the need to use antibiotics post-operatively in routine procedures.
Keeping your pet comfortable and pain free is our first priority. While in the hospital, we use injectable pain medications to ensure your pet’s comfort and closely monitor pain levels. We may send your pet home with oral pain medications to ensure comfort upon their return home.
