Acupuncture

We provide safe, comforting acupuncture treatments for patients with chronic pain as well as a number of other chronic conditions. Our acupuncturist will consult with your pet’s primary care veterinarian for the best results and the fastest healing.

In general, acupuncture is most beneficial for functional problems such as those that involve paralysis, noninfectious inflammation and pain. Regular acupuncture treatments can restore mobility for older pets, improve minor injuries as they occur and be administered preventatively to keep muscles and tendons resistant to injury.

Dermatology

Pet allergies can be quite frustrating because it is not always simple to find the root cause. Our dermatology team brings expertise and experience in diagnosing and treating a broad range of dermatological diseases, such as:

  • Allergic dermatitis

Internal Medicine

One of the greatest challenges in caring for animals is determining an accurate diagnosis, as quite often patients have symptoms that can indicate a number of diseases. Simple or complex, common or rare, our internal medicine doctors treat a variety of illnesses and conditions affecting pets’ internal organs and bodily systems. By using advanced tools and diagnostic procedures like CT scans, our team can identify the source of your pet’s health concerns.

We diagnose and treat diseases affecting the following body systems and organs:

  • Blood and bone marrow
  • Gastrointestinal tract
  • Heart/cardiovascular
  • Hormone systems
  • Immune system
  • Liver/gallbladder
  • Respiratory system
  • Urinary and reproductive tract

Our internal medicine doctors work across many specialties, providing a comprehensive approach to your pet’s care, and are committed to doing all they can to improve the overall quality of life for your pet.

Oncology

As a comprehensive veterinary specialty hospital, we offer hope and help to cancer patients with our veterinary oncology treatments. The good news is that there are many options for treating pets with cancer today and animals typically experience far fewer side effects than humans undergoing similar treatment.

Many cancer patients are treated with a combination of therapies. They may include one or more of the following:

  • Chemotherapy
  • Hospice care
  • Immunotherapy
  • Nutritional support
  • Pain management
  • Radiation therapy (available by referral)
  • Surgery

Our team of highly skilled practitioners will work with you to carefully assess your pet and implement a personalized treatment plan based on experience and proven methodologies.

Our comprehensive, onsite laboratory allows for rapid dog and cat oncology analysis to carefully monitor cancer patients undergoing chemotherapy. Each of our hospitals has a fully stocked pharmacy as well, providing you the convenience to fill prescriptions at your pet’s appointment.

Radiation Oncology

Radiation oncology for pets has advanced significantly in recent years. Our compassionate team will work with you to determine if radiation therapy is the most appropriate treatment option for your pet’s cancer.

Radiation oncology services – including stereotactic radiosurgery (SRS), conventional radiation therapy (CFRT) and palliative care (RT) – are provided by PetCure Oncology by referral at our Glendale hospital.
