Our ServicesBismarck Animal Clinic & Hospital
What type of preventative care is best for your pet will depend on your pet’s age, breed, and medical history. Examples of common types of preventative care include annual physical examinations, appropriate nutrition, lab work, vaccinations and preventative medications.
We utilize a combination of in-house and reference laboratories in order to provide both routine and specialized testing, depending on the patient’s needs.
Radiographs often will aid in the diagnosis of a pet’s medical condition. Our practice utilizes a digital radiograph system, which allows us to obtain high-quality images in a short period of time. It also allows us to efficiently send the images to a veterinary specialist if needed.
Our veterinarians perform abdominal ultrasound when indicated in order to more thoroughly evaluate the abdominal organs, including the liver, spleen, bladder and kidneys in a non-invasive manner.
Our hospital recognizes the importance of proper veterinary dental care. Dental procedures are anesthetic procedures for veterinary patients. Beyond this major difference, how we practice dentistry is very similar to human dental care. The patient’s mouth is cleaned and the teeth polished. The teeth and soft tissues are evaluated (charted) for abnormalities and these findings are documented. Dental radiographs are obtained. The veterinarian examines the pet’s mouth and evaluates the pet’s dental radiographs. If indicated, additional dental treatments, such as tooth extraction, are performed.
CO2 Surgical Laser
We use a CO2 surgical laser for the majority of our surgical procedures. Laser surgery provides several advantages to your pet including less pain, less bleeding, and a quicker return to normal activity.
Soft Tissue Surgery
Examples of soft tissue surgeries performed include spay (ovariohysterectomy), neuter (castration), hernia repair, and lump removals. More advanced procedures such as those involving the eyelids, soft palate, gastrointestinal tract, and bladder are also performed.
Examples of orthopedic surgeries include fracture repair, knee stabilization following cranial cruciate ligament injury and correction of medial patellar luxation. Some orthopedic procedures are performed by our staff veterinarians, whereas others are performed by a veterinary surgeon that travels to our hospital when needed.
Pocket Pet, Reptile, and Avian Medicine
In addition to cats and dogs, we also provide medical care for pocket pets, reptiles, and birds.
As general practitioners, our veterinarians are trained to manage a wide range of medical conditions. If we feel that your pet would benefit from seeing a veterinary specialist, arrangements for referral will be made.
Our veterinarians provide emergency after-hours care for our clients and clients of Lewis and Clark Animal Hospital. If your pet needs medical attention outside of routine business hours, call the clinic as you normally would. You will be provided with instructions on how to reach the on-call veterinarian.
We understand what an incredibly difficult decision euthanasia is for a pet’s family. Our staff will treat you and your pet with respect and kindness, and help guide you through the decision-making process.
