Our Professional Pet Services
Since pets cannot tell us what is wrong, veterinarians often need diagnostic testing to help.
If your pet requires blood-work, Concord Chapel Animal Hospital can provide you with this service. We maintain a fully-equipped laboratory in house and also use an outside laboratory. Our well trained team will acquire samples with a minimal amount of discomfort and stress to your pet. In most cases, results are returned within 24 hours. Once the results are available, we discuss them with you so that you understand what they mean and what needs to be done.
We are also equipped to perform fecal examinations, cytology and urinalysis testing with results available, in most cases, within a few minutes. To further enhance our diagnostic capabilities, we provide ultrasound services.
Concord Chapel Animal Hospital provides in-house, state-of-the-art x-rays which are highly effective in aiding the veterinarian with arriving at a diagnosis.
Comprehensive Wellness Examination
A regular physical examination is just as important for your pet as it is for you. Our veterinarians recommend a complete physical examination for your pet at least once a year until age seven and then twice a year after age seven. Routine examinations give the veterinarian an opportunity to develop a picture of your pet's overall health. Examinations are also essential in spotting problems before they become serious health issues. During an exam, your veterinarian may also talk to you about home health care for your pet. An examination is also a good time for your pet to get up-to-date on his or her vaccinations.
At Concord Chapel Animal Hospital, your pet receives a Comprehensive Wellness Examination by a veterinarian in order to evaluate his/her overall health.
We perform a complete examination. During this examination, we check the eyes and ears and also palpate muscles and bones, checking for abnormalities and testing for reflexes and areas for pain. We listen to the heart and take a pulse in one of the hind legs. We also listen to the lungs for any abnormal sounds or breathing irregularities. Any abnormality is discussed with you and noted in your pets medical record. Abdominal organs such as kidneys, liver, and intestines are also palpated, checking for irregularities, lumps and areas of pain. Any one of these could indicate a problem although some problems cannot be determined by a physical examination.
We offer puppy classes to help you get the new addition to your family off to a great start. Classes are available by Veterinary Technician & Behavior Consultant Cindy Luhring. She is also available to address additional training needs that you may encounter.
Pet Behavior Consulting
Pet Behavior consultations are available to help find resolution for your dog or cats behavior problems, issues or concerns.
Pets deserve a real world and fair approach to training. It is our responsibility to help them become proud and reliable citizens. It's easier to avoid a potential behavior problem than to correct it, however, some pet behavior problems can be corrected.
Cindy is able to customize an effective treatment program for problems and abnormal behaviors tailored to each pet, owner and environment.
Cindy has been able to help provide successful outcomes where other methods have failed.
Cindy will provide the client with extensive handouts. The number of sessions necessary will depend on the severity of the problem.
