Diagnostics and Treatment
We understand how important your furry companions are to you, and we are committed to providing the best possible care for them. Our state-of-the-art facility offers a range of diagnostic services, including in-house lab testing, digital x-ray, and ultrasound imaging.
Our in-house lab allows us to quickly and accurately diagnose various health conditions. Our experienced staff is trained to perform a variety of tests, including blood work, urinalysis, and fecal analysis. This means we can provide prompt treatment and better outcomes for your pet.
Our digital x-ray equipment provides high-quality images quickly and easily, allowing us to assess your pet’s bones, organs, and other internal structures. Our veterinarians can examine these images in real-time, allowing them to diagnose and treat your pet’s condition more effectively.
We also offer ultrasound imaging, a non-invasive diagnostic tool that allows us to see inside your pet’s body without surgery. This technology is particularly useful for examining soft tissues like the heart, liver, and kidneys. Our veterinarians are trained to perform ultrasound exams and interpret the result may be sent to a specialist, ensuring your pet receives the best possible care.
At Oakbrook Animal Hospital, we are committed to providing compassionate care for your pets. Utilizing state-of-the-art technology, we can diagnose your pet’s illness quickly so they feel better faster.
The most common reasons that we perform surgery on puppies and kittens is because they need to be spayed or neutered. These are routine procedures, and they are important because they help to maintain the health and longevity of your pet. Spaying and neutering in both cats and dogs contribute greatly to the prevention of infections, tumors, cancer, and other health-threatening conditions. Having your pet spayed or neutered helps to curb behavioral issues and to control the pet homelessness epidemic in the U.S.
In addition to the Spay and Neuter services, we also have a range of other surgeries that we provide for pets, depending on their specific diagnosis.
Treatment Options For Diagnoses
The type of treatment and/or surgery we recommend is always going to depend on your pet’s particular circumstances. Our assessment of what’s necessary begins with a thorough exam followed by a consideration of your pet’s breed, age, physical condition and a review of their medical history. We use these factors to determine a diagnosis that, consequently, informs our suggestions for the course of treatment. The surgical treatment options that we currently offer include:
- Laser Therapy
- Ophthalmic Surgery
- Oral Surgery
- Orthopedic Surgery
- General Surgery
Good oral health care is paramount to your pet’s overall health! Periodontal disease affects most dogs and cats by age three. If not addressed, this can lead to a host of other oral and systemic health problems. Teeth can become painful, affecting your pet’s appetite and mood. The proliferation of bacteria, plaque, and tartar can also result in loss of dentition, bone loss, organ damage, and strain on the immune system. Regular dental exams and cleanings are the foundation of your pet’s ongoing health and quality of life.
Before any dental procedure, we conduct pre-anesthetic bloodwork to ensure your pet is healthy enough for anesthesia. This helps us identify any underlying health concerns requiring special attention during the procedure.
We also place an IV catheter for fluid maintenance during the procedure to ensure your pet’s safety and comfort. This allows us to administer fluids and medications as needed and helps prevent dehydration and other complications.
Our state-of-the-art digital dental x-ray technology allows us to identify hidden dental problems that may not be visible during a routine oral exam. This includes identifying decay, abscesses, and other issues that can be difficult to spot without x-rays.
We perform scaling and polishing during the dental procedure to remove plaque and tartar buildup from your pet’s teeth. This helps prevent gum disease, tooth decay, and other oral health problems.
In some cases, extractions may be necessary to remove severely damaged or infected teeth. Our experienced veterinarians and staff are skilled in performing extractions with minimal discomfort to your pet. We can also show you how to care for your pet’s teeth at home and recommend home care products to help keep your pet’s mouth healthy between cleanings.
