Herring Cove Animal Hospital is a full-service veterinary facility that specializes in the treatment of companion animals such as dogs, cats, reptiles, rabbits, and ferrets. We offer general and advanced medical care including wellness exams, preventative care, vaccinations, internal medicine, soft tissue and orthopedic surgery, spay and neuter, dentistry, and emergency services.
- General Wellness and Preventative Care
We provide wellness examinations and immunizations as the cornerstone of high quality good health care for your pet. We know that it is far easier and safer to prevent medical problems than it is to treat them after they occur. Our doctors make sure that each and every pet receives individualized wellness care. Our attention to detail helps ensure that your pet receives the best care at all times.
- Surgical Services
Our highly skilled veterinary team is experienced in the most common surgical procedures. We perform spays and neuters, declaws, tumor removal and biopsy, abdominal surgeries, removal of gastrointestinal foreign bodies and some orthopedic procedures, all under the safest possible anesthetic and with the utmost attention to patient monitoring.
- Pain Management
The need to control pain in our pets is a simple, humane principle of veterinary care. Pets in pain suffer. As members of your family, your pets are worthy of the same attention to pain control as every other loved one. Therefore, no surgical or medical procedure can be considered a complete success if your pet is in pain.
- In-House Diagnostic Laboratory and Radiology
Our hospital is equipped to quickly perform diagnostic tests on a variety of body fluids (ear swabs, blood, urine, etc) and other samples (feces, etc) to achieve an accurate and rapid diagnosis as well as state-of-the-art radiology services. While not all samples can be analyzed in-house; when this capability is combined with our outside laboratory services, a full comprehensive laboratory evaluation is obtained.
- Dental Care
We offer complete dental care services and products. Dental disease is an often-overlooked threat to the comfort and health of your pet. Your veterinarian may recommend a particular dental cleaning schedule, oral care routine, or special treatment based on your pet’s dental health needs. We also use digital dental X-rays to fully examine your pet’s oral and dental health. With this knowledge the best decisions can be made in the treatment of your pet.
- In-House Pharmacy
For your convenience, our hospital has a pharmacy, enabling you to pick up your pet’s medications at the time of your visit. While no hospital carries every medication, we keep the most commonly prescribed medications in stock. If your pet requires a medication that we do not carry, call ahead and we may be able to order it for you. Refills on previously prescribed medications should be phoned in at least one day ahead of time to ensure that your order is ready when you arrive.
