Looking for veterinary services in Poteau?
General Small animal veterinary services: We offer annual wellness exams and see patients with a variety of medical needs.
We can perform most surgical procedures including soft tissue and orthopedic procedures.
We offer the use of a CO2 laser for some surgical procedures.
Reduced Pain – The CO2 laser beam seals nerve endings as it cuts through tissue. This reduces the amount of pain the patient feels during and after surgery.
Reduced Bleeding – The CO2 laser beam cauterizes and seals small blood vessels as it cuts. This laser energy achieves hemostasis and provides the surgeon with a bloodless surgical field in most procedures.
Reduced Swelling – There is no physical contact between the laser and the surgical region, eliminating the tearing and bruising of tissue associated with traditional surgical methods. Lymphatic vessels are also sealed.
Reduced Infection – Laser energy acts as an antibacterial agent by producing high temperatures, effectively eliminating microorganisms.
We offer state of the art hormone analysis to monitor the heat cycle and more accurately time breeding. We breed dogs using artificial insemination and surgical implantation. We also offer ultrasound capabilities to assess the health of the fetus at mid to late term.
We offer in-house blood analysis and chemistry using Abaxis laboratory equipment. This diagnostic is used to check red blood cells, platelets, and white cell count. Other diagnostics include complete metabolic profile to check the function of the liver and kidneys.
Multi Parameter Patient Monitoring
We have state of the art patient monitors that measure multiple parameters to assess the condition of our patients while under general anesthesia.
Our anesthesia protocols maintain general anesthesia using isoflurane which is a gas that is very rapidly removed from the body which decreases the recovery time.
In house Radiology
We offer the use of radiology to aid in the diagnosis of soft tissue and orthopedic disease.
We use a viedoscope to view into the patients ears. This image is reproduced on a video screen for the doctor and the owner to view real time during the exam.
We offer general dentistry procedures including teeth cleaning and polishing as well as extractions.
Laser Therapy has been successful in treating post-surgical pain and many acute and chronic conditions, including:
- Cuts and Bites
- Tissue Trauma
- Sprains, Strains and Fractures
- Allergy Inflammations
- Lick Granulomas
- Hip Dysplasia
- Urinary Tract Disease
We now offer surgery-free, drug-free, non-evasive treatment.
