Pet Emergency and Urgent Care
We have a veterinarian and personnel on duty five days a week who are trained and equipped to handle any urgent care your pet has. Usually, an emergency team consists of at least one veterinarian and several technicians working together to save a pet’s life. Emergencies can be things such a snail bait poisoning, hit by a car, and chocolate ingestion. If you ever feel that your pet needs emergency treatment, do not hesitate to call or come in immediately. If possible, it is best to call before coming in so that a team member can advise you on your particular emergency.
We are also available for urgent care when the condition is not life-threatening, but you feel your pet needs to be seen before you are able to get an appointment. Our veterinarians will work to “squeeze” you in between scheduled appointments. When you arrive, our receptionists will be able to give you an estimate of how long you may have to wait in order to be seen.
Animals can suffer from plaque and tartar build-up just like us. They can also get broken and infected teeth that can abscess and be very painful. We offer complete dental care, including digital oral radiographs to locate diseased teeth which cannot be determined by visual exam only.
Digital Veterinary Radiology
In-House Veterinary Laboratory
We offer in-house diagnostic laboratory testing for our patients and are able to perform in-hospital testing for complete blood counts, chemistry profiles, and urinalyses which allows a more timely diagnosis and treatment for your pet.
Pet Laser Therapy
HOW IT WORKS: The laser light is delivered through a non-invasive handpiece to treat the affected area. Your pet may feel a gentle and soothing warmth. Most treatments take a matter of minutes.
WHAT ARE THE COSTS? Treatment protocols are unique to each patient and condition. Therefore, treatments will vary in time, complexity, and cost. Laser therapy can be used to enhance other treatment plans recommended by your veterinarian.
Access to CT Machine Use
The scanner can diagnose inner-ear disease, sinus disease, and metastatic lung disease and can perform full-mouth dental radiographs within minutes.
Pet Wellness Plans
Routine wellness visits are a great way to help your pet live a healthy life for as long as possible. These visits can also help the Washington Family Vet Clinic team catch potential health issues earlier and may help you avoid additional costs associated with treatments if the disease goes undetected. We have multiple plans for your pet’s needs.
Limited Orthopedic Surgery Procedures
We offer limited orthopedic surgical procedures that can bring the canine limb back to a normal or near-normal state. If your pet is scheduled to undergo orthopedic surgery, they will require heavy sedation and supplementary oxygen, as the procedure may take several hours for completion.
