The Reception Area
Our reception areas are spacious, bright, and open. Children are always welcome and can enjoy the "Kidz Korner" where they will find books and toys. There is plenty of reading material for adults too, including educational brochures, magazines, and books. Our appointment system is designed to help avoid long waits in the reception area, however, if you do have to wait you may help yourself to coffee, tea, or hot chocolate provided fresh daily at our coffee bar.
Our four exam rooms allow us to meet with you in a quiet environment to examine your pet, perform routine vaccinations, and discuss your pet's health and any recommended tests or treatments. We recommend an annual blood test for heartworm disease and heartworm preventative to be given year round. During annual exams, you will receive a report card of your pet's health that you can take home and share with the rest of your family!
Our computerized records and well-organized filing system enable us to track your pet's health and send out reminders when it is time for exams, vaccines, or lab testing.
Laboratory: Our in-house laboratory allows us to obtain quick results on your pet's blood, fecal, and skin testing. Immediate results allow rapid and accurate treatment.
Our state-of-the-art radiology equipment allows us to check your pet for any broken bones or other internal abnormalities, and quickly send off digital copies on the computer.
Ultrasound provides a means to evaluate internal organs without surgery. Ultrasound is especially useful when looking at the heart, liver or urinary system.
The use of a flexible fiberoptic endoscope allows us to see inside the stomach or intestine. We can obtain necessary biopsy samples, removed foreign objects and evaluate the health of those areas without surgery.
Dietary and Medical Supplies
We carry a full line of prescription foods to meet a diverse range of dietary needs, from the growing kitten or puppy to the geriatric pet. We also carry the all natural Wellness food line, which has no artificial preservatives or colors and is produced from human grade ingredients. Also available is a full line of prescription shampoos, dietary supplements, and items for other health care needs.
Our on-site pharmacy insures that we are prepared to treat your pet even in an emergency.
Our state-of-the-art surgery allows us to perform both major and minor surgeries. Surgery is always performed with sterile equipment in a clean and safe environment. A trained technician carefully monitors anesthesia, heart rate and blood oxygen levels throughout the procedure.
Dental and Treatment Areas
Our dental area is fully equipped with everything we need to safely and thoroughly clean your pet's teeth.
Haven Animal Hospital uses only the safest anesthetics available. We tailor our anesthetic protocol to each individual animal to provide the safest procedure possible. We use isoflurane gas which allows a smooth anesthetic induction and recovery, as well as limited post anesthetic problems.
Our boarding facility consists of large spacious kennels for the larger dogs, cages for the smaller breeds and a separate ward for cats. This boarding privilege is reserved for our clients only. This is for your pet's protection because we know the current health status of each pet staying with us. All animals boarding in our facility are required to be current on all vaccinations.
