Edinburgh Pet Health Center

Medical Care

Our veterinarians diagnose and treat a wide variety of diseases and problems in pets. Endocrine diseases such as diabetes, Cushings disease and thyroid conditions are very common. Metabolic problems, organ failure, cardiac and respiratory diseases, cancer, intestinal disease, dermatology, ophthalmology, urology, neurology and many other problems arise in companion pets and we can help you get your pet treated in a timely fashion. If we are unable to determine the cause of your pet’s problems, we can arrange for your pet to see the appropriate specialists to get the care they need.

We have many in-house laboratory capabilities as well as access to timely outside laboratories so you get your pet’s test results quickly. Our in-house test availability includes heartworm testing, fecal evaluation, feline leukemia and feline immunodeficiency viral testing, complete blood counts, chemistry profiles, urine testing, fungal and bacterial cultures, skin scraping, cytology and impressions, and tick borne disease testing. We can attain and process regular x-rays and intra-oral x-rays for dental problems. We can perform contrast studies for urinary diseases as well as gastrointestinal problems such as foreign body ingestion or cancer. We have blood pressure units and an ECG for evaluating heart issues.

We provide veterinary services, including hospitalization, parenteral fluid administration, continuous rate infusions, nursing care by certified veterinary technicians, wound care, oxygen delivery, thoracocentesis, abdominocentesis, intensive care, intravenous and urinary catheterizations, and a wide variety of other diagnostic and medical procedures. We do have an isolation ward for pets with infectious disease. Cats and dogs have separate ward rooms as well. We have safe, effective supplemental heating devices, including warm water heating pads and Baer Hugger air warming unit.

We maintain a well-stocked pharmacy for a wide variety of problems and utilize specialty compounding pharmacies and some human pharmacies for more uncommon drug needs.

We do provide some ancillary grooming services for our patients, including nail trims, anal sac expression, ear cleaning and plucking of ear hair, mat clipping and total body hair clipping under anesthesia.
