Veterinary Services 


Because of the shorter lifespan of our pets, Montclair Animal Hospital stresses the importance of an annual physical examination along with regular heartworm, intestinal parasite and  baseline bloodwork screening.  Vaccinations are given based on the pets life style and risk of exposure.   We offer a wide range of veterinary services to keep your companions feeling their best:

BATHING

Treat your pet to a luxurious spa treatment. Our special, cleansing baths, using the  Hydro-Surge system,  removes dirt and unpleasant odors . The soothing massage action will leave your pet feeling fresh and revitalized. Shampoos and conditioning rinses are selected for individual pets needs. Veterinary directed medicated baths are available for those special skin and coat conditions. Services also include nail trim and anal gland expression.

BEHAVIORAL MEDICINE

Behavior problems lead to significant owner frustration, and perhaps suprisingly to the abandonment or death of many pets. The veterinary staff of Montclair Animal Hospital is informed and motivated to help you develop your pet into a well-adjusted family member. We offer counseling and training guidelines for many problem behaviors. Ask our staff for available help and advice. We can also guide you to other qualified experts in our area.

BOARDING

Pets are like our children - Montclair Animal Hospital staff  feed, nurture and lavish attention on them.  Cats have a room with a view and dogs are walked three times a day. 

DAY CARE

Is your pet unhappy or lonely while you're at work? Can't get needed medications administered while you are gone? Need a condition monitored through the day? Give your companion that personal attention he or she needs throughout the day. We offer the same TLC and exercise offered to our longer-term guests.

DENTAL CARE

Regular professional cleaning is important to maintaining your pet's teeth. Few advances in veterinary medicine have had as dramatic an affect on pet's longevity and well being. We use modern and safe ultrasound to clean each tooth thoroughly. Teeth are then hand scaled to remove every last bit of tartar possible - above and below the gum line. Dental technicians polish teeth to create a smooth, lustrous tooth surface more resistant to plaque buildup. Fluoride treatments help strengthen enamel and reduce tooth sensitivity. Complete oral exams including  full mouth x-rays help locate hidden problems causing discomfort and other health risks.

ENDOSCOPY

High-tech fiber optics permits direct visual examination and biopsies of many different body areas. Montclair Animal Hospital offers rigid scope endoscopy in a variety of capacities. Other cases are referred to local internists for more extensive evaluations.

FERRETS, REPTILES, RABBITS, SMALL MAMMALS

Veterinary medicine for exotic pets is growing as the popularity of these animals increase. With better public education in health, nutritional and environmental management, all species have a greater chance for living longer and healthier lives. We employ staff veterinarians who possess experience in the care and treatment of these exotic pets. We encourage you to use us as a source of information to help you provide optimal husbandry.

IMMUNIZATION AND WELLNESS CARE

The staff of Montclair Animal Hospital  strive to prevent illness whenever possible. The time and effort invested in wellness protection has rewards for both pets and owners. Our wellness recommendations are customized specifically for each pet and include: comprehensive physical exam; internal parasite testing; heartworm and flea control; customized vaccination program according to newest recommendations; spay and neuter; routine dental care and specialized diagnostic testing for all life stages.

HOSPICE/EUTHANASIA SERVICES

Saying goodbye to a long-time friend is painful. Our staff work with clients to ensure their pet's comfort and dignity, and make the process as easy as possible for all concerned including home euthanasia.   

INTERNAL MEDICINE

We cover all areas of internal medicine, including: Cardiology; Ophthalmology; Neurology; Dermatology; Gastroenterology; Orthopedic surgery; Oncology; Endocrinology; among others.

LASER THERAPY

We offer Class IV laser therapy, a surgery-free, drug-free, noninvasive treatment.  Laser therapy uses a beam of laser light to deeply penetrate tissue without damaging it.  Laser energy induces a biological response in the cells called "photo-bio-modulation", which leads to reduced pain, reduced inflammation and increased healing speed.  This therapy has been scientifically proved to be successful in treating post surgical pain and many acute and chronic conditions.

NUTRITIONAL COUNSELING

Some pets require special food, and all pets benefit from a balanced diet. Our trained and certified staff is available to help you choose the right diet for your pet to keep him or her happy, healthy and active.

PAIN MANAGEMENT

Veterinary patients feel pain and discomfort under the same circumstances as people do. We know that recognizing and alleviating pain in animals is the essence of good patient care.

RADIOLOGY

Radiology - or X-rays - help our veterinarians evaluate muscular-skeletal, cardiovascular(cardiopulmonary), gastrointestinal, reproductive and urinary systems.

SURGERY

We offer the most advanced surgical techniques and technology. All patients are carefully screened for safety, and anesthetics are specifically tailored to your pet. Surgical services and facilities include: board certified surgeon available for consultation; fully trained veterinary and technical staff, to ensure the safest, most efficient, state-of-the-art procedures for your pet; heated surgery tables for greater comfort; advanced sterilization techniques; ECG and oxygen saturation monitors; intensive after surgery care and full blood testing.
