Types of Specialties & Services

Each BluePearl pet hospital is unique. Our Richmond hospital offers these specialties and services provided by skilled, compassionate and dedicated professionals.

Emergency Medicine

If you believe your pet is sick, hurt or in distress, we’re here to provide expert care. Our trained emergency clinicians are prepared to diagnose and treat urgent cases, including severely injured or critically ill pets. Common emergency cases we see include:

  • Animal attacks
  • Bleeding
  • Collapse episodes
  • Difficulty breathing
  • Difficulty urinating
  • Hit-by-car accidents
  • Ingestion of medications, poisons or objects
  • Seizure
  • Severe diarrhea
  • Unresponsiveness
  • Vomiting

Through every step of your pet’s emergency care experience, we keep you and your pet’s primary veterinarian informed and involved.

Internal Medicine

Veterinary internists are trained to take care of patients who can’t tell them what’s wrong. By using the pet’s history, clinical signs, lab results, imaging studies and other testing, our internal medicine specialists can diagnose severe, chronic illnesses or symptoms that appear suddenly.

Surgery

When your pet needs surgery, our veterinary surgery team is ready to provide the best possible care. Our hospital is equipped with advanced tools, technology and monitoring capabilities to provide sophisticated medical care and compassionate service during your pet’s time of need.

Surgery may be the best option for pets with:

  • Cancer
  • Chronic diseases like ear or respiratory tract infections
  • Congenital conditions like dysplasia or heart defects
  • Hernias
  • Trauma or injuries, including fractures, ligament and tendon injuries

Veterinary Blood Blank

Veterinary blood donor programs collect and store blood to better support pets in need. It’s our goal to provide access to life-saving blood products for pets, and your pet may be able to help. Contact us to learn more about requirements and whether your pet is eligible to help save lives.

Compassionate Treatment

Our team respects the close bond between pet owners and their “fur babies” and treats each with dignity, compassion and kindness.
