Professional Services

Dr. N & the Staff at Brentwood Animal Hospital provide many professional services including:

Illness & Injury Exams

Illness and injury exams are seen as need requires. Full exam with additional workups including lab tests, in house and outside lab, and radiology are incorporated as needed. Hospitalization is also provided as necessary.

Yearly Wellness Exams & Vaccinations

Yearly wellness exams are vital in helping us assess your pet's current status and allows us to detect potential problems earlier. With the changing recommendations for vaccination intervals, we try to find a schedule relevant to your pet's needs.

Spay & Neutering

Spay and neutering is offered for dogs and cats. We recommend a pre-surgical anesthetic blood panel to help us detect potential problems prior to surgery. Cat neuterings go home the same day, dog neuterings, and cat and dog spays go home the following day. This overnight stay allows us to minimize activity post surgery, monitor recovery, and evaluate any possible complications the following day. We offer post surgery take home pain relievers following the injectable form administered prior to surgery.

Laboratory Services

In house testing includes fecal exams, heartworm tests, feline leukemia and feline AIDs, and others. More involved comprehensive tests such as CBC, blood chemistries, blood titers, endocrine evaluation and therapeutic blood levels of medicines are available through outside labs. These results are usually available within 12-24 hours.

Radiology

Radiographs (x-rays) allow non-invasive exam of your pet. We provide both plain film and barium series radiographs. For those more difficult interpretations, we have a board certified radiologist available for evaluations usually given within 24 hours.

Surgery

We offer multiple surgical procedures including lumpectomies, exploratories, intestinal and orthopedic surgeries. For patients requiring more involved surgeries, we have a board certified surgeon available to perform these procedures in our hospital to allow both the patient and owner the convenience and familiarity of our facility and staff.

Ultrasound

Ultrasound is provided by a ultrasonographer and board certified radiologist in our hospital. We usually can schedule this service within 24-48 hours and those with emergencies the same day.

Dental Care

Dental care includes preventative cleaning and extraction of problem teeth. A pre-anesthetic blood panels is recommended for these procedures. Minimal anesthesia and speedy procedure time helps us reduce the risks of anesthesia. Post cleaning care may include antibiotics and pain relievers as needed. Protect the smile you love.

Bathing/Boarding

Bathing with the appropriate medicated shampoo and conditioner your pet needs is offered with drop off in the morning as early as 7:30 am and pick up after 3:00 pm. We include nail trim, ear cleaning, and anal sac expression as needed.

Although boarding is limited due to the size of our kennel, we provide this service as available. Cats and dogs stay in individual cages or runs and twice daily walks are provided for dogs behind our office in a fenced-in spacious area. Ask for a tour, we'll be happy to oblige.
