Your pet is an important part of your family, and when he or she is ill, you want the best medical care available.

The veterinarians and staff at our clinic are ready to provide your pet with cutting edge veterinary medical care. From wellness exams and vaccines to advanced diagnostics and complex surgical procedures, your pet will receive high quality care at our hospital.

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.

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.

Euthanasia Services

Saying goodbye to a long-time friend is painful. We work with clients to ensure their pet’s comfort and dignity. Services include taking care of the remains as directed by the client and home euthanasia services upon request.

Fully Stocked Pharmacy

Montclair Animal Hospital stocks a wide range of the best veterinary medications and preventatives in the animal healthcare field. We are competitively priced and offer manufacturer warranties that are not available through the internet.

Glaucoma Testing

Dogs and cats can have glaucoma which can result in discomfort and loss of vision. Early detection can help spare vision for a longer period of time. We have a Tono-Pen to measure the intra-ocular pressure to determine if your pet has glaucoma. If diagnosed, it is important to monitor the pressure frequently to determine response to therapy.

Internal Medicine

We cover all areas of internal medicine, including: Cardiology; Neurology; Dermatology; Gastroenterology; 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

The practice of high-quality veterinary medicine focuses on the entire patient – from medical issues that affect physical functioning, to emotional and psychological issues that affect well-being. Experiencing pain can affect the body’s physical functioning and can have a detrimental effect on a patient’s well-being and state of mind. That’s why pain management is among our primary considerations when we are treating a pet for any medical condition.

From routine procedures (such as a spays or dental cleanings), to more advanced medical treatments (such as bone surgeries or cancer treatments), to chronically painful conditions (such as arthritis or back pain), we are dedicated to providing safe and effective pain management to every patient. We will also help you recognize signs of pain in your pet so that we can modify his or her pain management plan when necessary.

Recognizing and alleviating pain in our patients is at the very heart of quality, compassionate patient care. We don’t take pain management for granted and will employ all our skills to help ensure your pet’s comfort, well-being, and full recovery.

Radiology

Radiography is a valuable diagnostic tool in veterinary medicine. As we continually strive to offer the highest quality medicine and diagnostic testing, we are pleased to offer radiology services as a means of providing excellent care to our patients.

A radiograph (sometimes called an x-rRay) is a type of photograph that can look inside the body and reveal information that may not be discernable from the outside. Radiography can be used to evaluate almost any organ in the body, including the heart, lungs, and abdominal organs, as well as the bones.

Radiography is painless, safe, and completely non-invasive, and it uses only very low doses of radiation. Because the level of radiation exposure needed to perform radiography is very low, even pregnant females and very young pets can undergo radiography. Radiographs can be used to evaluate bones as well as the size, shape, and position of many of the body’s organs. The size of organs is important because some medical conditions—such as kidney, heart, or liver disease—can alter the size of these organs. The shape and position of organs can be altered or distorted by certain medical conditions, including intestinal blockage or cancer. Tumors, depending on their size and location, can also sometimes be detected using radiography. Radiography can also be used to diagnose bladder stones, broken bones, chronic arthritis, certain spinal cord diseases, and a variety of other conditions.

Radiographs are an important tool that can help us make a correct diagnosis for your pet. Our radiology service is staffed by caring, skilled professionals who will provide state-of-the-art care with compassion and expertise.

Every patient is treated as an individual and their vaccination recommendations are tailored to their needs.
