The mission of Thornwood Veterinary Clinic is to provide excellent and compassionate veterinary care to our patients while providing a personal, educational and affordable experience for their owners. We take pride in the many veterinary services we have to offer.
Pet Services We Provide
Any patient who comes in for routine vaccinations will receive a full physical examination by the doctor. This type of exam is recommended annually. Remember, a dog ages 7 years biologically for every calendar year. The health examination includes a check of general appearance, attitude, eyes, ears, nose, mouth, teeth, throat, mucous membranes & capillary refill time (CRT), skin/coat, abdomen, heart, lungs, and the musculoskeletal system.
Every pet that comes in for a dental procedure will have a pre surgical examination, blood work, and a urinalysis prior to general anesthesia. Once the pet is anesthetized, a thorough oral examination is performed followed by ultrasonic scaling of the tartar, and finished by polishing those pearly whites! Then, all of the teeth are rechecked and charted and any fractured, diseased, or loose teeth are extracted by the veterinarian.
Any patient who comes in sick, injured, or otherwise will receive a physical examination (described above) in addition to any necessary diagnostics (Radiographs, Ultrasound, blood work, urinalysis, etc.).
Thornwood Veterinary Clinic has two very talented veterinarians with more than 60-years of combined surgical experience. We offer a full line of surgical services from common spay and neuter procedures to cruitiate repairs and everything between. We also offer referral service to specialist should your pet require.
Our in-house laboratory equipment allows us to do diagnostic work while your pet is still here; it is fast (usually giving us results within 30 minutes or less), convenient, and reliable. We offer blood work (CBC, chemistry profiles, etc.), urinalysis, radiographs, microscopic evaluations, and more.
Almost any drug the doctor prescribes for your pet is kept in-house and available at a competitive cost. We also have available all monthly preventative medication including heartworm, flea/tick, and intestinal parasite protection that your pet needs. Thinking of filling your pet’s prescription online?
