Dog & Cat Surgery
We have a state-of-the-art surgical suite for providing care to our patients. We use radiowave surgical technology, an advanced technique that allows for shorter anesthesia time, shorter healing time, and significantly less bleeding and discomfort for our patients. This technology is even safer than laser surgery techniques. We also work with a network of specialists should your pet need any specialized surgery.
The anesthesia protocols used by the veterinarians at Advanced PetCare of Oakland are the safest possible. We are committed to providing an extra margin of safety for our patients of all ages. We use the most modern, up-to-date monitoring equipment to ensure that our patients’ vitals are monitored and recorded throughout their procedure. Our staff will be present from the start of each surgery until your pet is completely awake from anesthesia.
Your pet’s oral health is one of the most important aspects of their overall physical health. We evaluate each pet’s oral health during every physical examination and use our findings to determine whether a dog or cat professional teeth cleaning cleaning is in order. Our dental teeth cleaning services include ultrasonic cleaning and polishing, dental x-rays, tooth extractions if needed, periodontal disease treatments, sealing, and bonding. We actively provide education for our clients, as a means of preventing oral diseases and other potential health problems that can be caused by an unhealthy mouth.
We utilize x-rays (radiology) and ultrasound technology at our hospital. We use on-site digital x-rays and digital dental radiology to provide quick diagnosis.
Our in-house ultrasound technology is a color Doppler machine. We use our advanced ultrasound technology to identify issues with internal organs. Dr. Sheldon is our resident ultrasonographer.
Our in-house laboratory allows us to provide diagnostic test results quickly and efficiently. We are also able to utilize our in-house laboratory to provide monitoring services for our hospitalized patients.
We have a fully-stocked, in-house pharmacy at Advanced PetCare of Oakland, enabling us to provide our patients with pharmaceuticals, supplements, medicated shampoo, and parasite preventatives when they are needed. We also carry prescription diets. We invite you to visit our online store for purchasing.
Parasite Control Programs
Our parasite control programs are designed around the specific needs of your pet. We consider such factors as their lifestyle and environment before determining the best course of preventive action. We’ll be happy to discuss all aspects of your pet’s needs with you at your next visit.
Pets can be easily separated from their owners, but not so easily reunited. For this reason, we recommend microchipping for each pet. Our team also works closely with the Oakland County Animal Control to help issue dog licenses to all pet owners.
We provide dietary counseling to our clients because we believe that maintaining a healthy body weight is a very important aspect of a pet’s overall physical health. Our team consists of two staff members who are certified nutrition counselors. We also have a Pet Slimdown Program designed to help your pet reach their healthy weight. This program includes regular labs, monthly weigh-ins and dietary advice from our veterinary team.
Because of our hospital’s convenient, central location, emergency care is only minutes away no matter where you are in the area.
