Phoenix Veterinary Center care for Dogs & Cats
Pet preventative care
Preventative annual exams are essential for the health of your pet. Through thorough physical examinations, your pet can live a longer and healthier life.
Preventive exams may also uncover disease earlier through screening tests which can lead to improved treatment prognosis and enhanced quality of life for your pet.
Senior pet care and geriatric medicine
Did you know that our pets may exhibit similar age-related changes just like we do as we age? Conditions associated with aging can be addressed during our 6-month senior examinations as our pets become “senior citizens.”
As the quality of veterinary medicine improves, our pets are living longer and happier lives with senior care and geriatric medicine!
At Phoenix Vet Center we too are pet owners, and we naturally love to talk about pets.
From behavior to nutrition, training and animal care tips, pet education is vital for the health of their furry family member through their life.
Check out our pet blog as we address everyday situations such as traveling with your pet to information on the tools we use to treat your pet.
If you have interest on a specific topic we encourage you to explore our current issues, and if you can’t find the information that you were looking for, please contact us, and we would be happy to supply the information to you.
Dog & Cat dental care and oral surgery
Have Max’s kisses been less cute however far more stinky? The oral health of our pets is something we take very seriously.
Just like humans cat and dog teeth cleanings are an essential part of your Pets general health and oral hygiene. A thorough examination of the mouth will help determine if a trip to the veterinary dentist is necessary. It also provides us with an opportunity to discuss with our clients how to help prevent periodontal disease.
If tooth extraction is necessary, our Veterinarians are skilled in oral surgery including complicated tooth extractions and flap procedures to prevent open sockets. Read more on our Dog & Cat Teeth Cleaning & Dental Care in Phoenix page.
Laboratory testing and diagnostics
Phoenix Veterinary services include comprehensive laboratory testing for your dog or cat. After screening, the results will be discussed with owners to help screen, monitor and diagnose diseases.
Veterinary digital radiology (X-ray)
Our state of the art, digital X-ray and digital dental x-ray have high resolution to enhance our diagnostic capabilities. The X-rays are reviewed by our veterinarians, and can also be sent for review to a board-certified veterinary radiologist if it is deemed necessary.
Ultrasound for your pet
The close relationship with our linked hospitals allows us access to state of the art diagnostics. We utilize the ultrasound services at University Animal Hospital in Tempe, AZ.
Ultrasound is used to enhance our internal imaging ability, and we can visualize internal structures in real time. The ability to view internal structures in real time dramatically improves out diagnostic capabilities.
From diagnosis and treatment of common and uncommon diseases in our pets, the veterinarians at Phoenix Veterinary Center have the experience to treat your pets illness. Metabolic, endocrine and infectious disease beware, the vets at PVC are here!
Chemotherapy for animals
Advances in veterinary medicine have made treatment of many types of cancer not only possible, but very realistic.
The number one goal at Phoenix Veterinary Center in cancer treatment with chemotherapy is to maintain the best possible quality of life for your pet.
General and advanced soft tissue surgery
The surgical suite at Phoenix Veterinary Center provides an environment for our experienced veterinarians to perform routine and advanced abdominal and soft tissue surgical procedures.
Comprehensive anesthesia is monitored to ensure the highest safety for our patients during the surgical procedure.
Following surgery, we focus on appropriate pain management and postoperative care to facilitate the quickest recovery for our surgical patients.
The veterinarians at Phoenix Veterinary Center know which “bones to pick.” We utilize our close relationship with Dr. Evan Ware at Laveen Veterinary Center who has developed a particular interest in veterinary orthopedics. Dr. Ware has the experience to treat patients’ orthopedic problems both surgically and medically.
Dr. Ware’s experiences cover a broad spectrum of orthopedic issues such as the following.
- Degenerative joint disease (arthritis)
- Complicated fracture repair
- Tibial Plateau Leveling Osteotomy (TPLO) for craniate cruciate ligament injury (torn ACL in people)
Assessing pain levels in our animal patients can be very challenging since our pets can’t tell us what hurts. Identifying subtle cues, searching for the primary source of pain and developing an appropriate pain management plan is one of our passions.
At Phoenix Veterinary Center you can count on us to provide comfort for your pet when pain management is necessary.
Phoenix Veterinary Center (PVC) and Laveen Veterinary Center (LVC) do not have the facilities to provide boarding. However, our affiliated hospital, University Animal Hospital, has a large attached pet resort available for boarding both dogs and cats.
Since the boarding is part of the hospital, your pets will have constant access to the best medical care available. An excellent choice for your pet for everyday and holiday boarding as well as special needs and diabetic pets.
The beautiful boarding facility has 157 dog suites (both indoor & outdoor) and 48 cat condos (indoor only) available for owners to entrust their pets with when they are away.
