We're pleased to offer the following services at FIVE POINTS VETERINARY CLINIC::
Because of the shorter lifespan of our pets, we stress the importance of an annual physical examination. Thorough check-ups and preventive care can help alleviate some serious health problems or decrease the severity of some illnesses. We offer a wide range of veterinary services to keep your companions feeling their best:
Vaccinations: Rabies vaccinations are required by law because it can be fatal for both pets and any humans those animals infected come into contact with. In addition, we offer distemper vaccines, bordetella, feline leukemia, feline HIV, lyme, lepto and others. Please talk to a veterinarian to discuss which vaccines are right for your pet.
Diagnostic and Therapeutic Services: Our hospital is equipped to provide diagnostic and therapeutic services to care for your pets' complete health care needs.
Surgical Services: Our state-of-the-art surgical suite provides for the performance of a wide variety of surgical procedures.
Anesthesia: We utilize the safest available anesthetics to provide an extra margin of safety, especially for our older or high-risk patients. Using the most modern equipment, the patient's vital signs are monitored during all anesthetic procedures.
Internal medicine consults: We offer in-hospital referrals to an internal medicine specialist who performs ultrasounds, endoscopic procedures and helps us with the diagnosis of more complicated cases.
Radiology Services: Our on-site, modern X-ray equipment provides high quality radiographs to aid in the quick diagnosis of many disorders.
