At Quinte Animal Hospital we are advocates of preventative medicine. We want your pet to enjoy as many healthy years with you as possible. Our wellness programs include physical examinations that are conducted annually for healthy adult dogs and cats, and every 6 months for healthy senior pets. Kittens, puppies, and animals with specific health concerns will need to be examined more frequently. Additionally, we have vaccination programs that can be specifically tailored to your pet’s needs, parasite screening and prevention, nutritional consultations, dental assessments and more!
In-House Vaccine Titre Testing
We appreciate that many pet owners are invested in avoiding over-vaccination, we too want to ensure that pets are leading healthy lives while being protected from harmful disease. Research has shown us that some vaccines may be able to provide immunity for many years. For this reason we provide in-house titre testing for Distemper, Adenovirus and Parvovirus. With a simple blood test we can determine your pet’s immunity to these diseases and whether they require re-vaccination. We will discuss this option with you at your pet’s annual examination. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us.
In-House Laboratory Services
Our on-site lab allows us to run a wide variety of diagnostics and wellness screens. We are able to perform complete body chemistry profiles to screen your pet’s organ function, complete blood counts, urine evaluations, as well as pre-anesthetic testing for surgical & dental patients. We also use outside labs where necessary for special diagnostics.
We perform many surgical procedures from spays, neuters and dentistry to fracture and cruciate repairs, and more. We will provide your pet with a comfortable, caring and safe environment to ensure their procedure goes as smoothly as possible. Every surgical patient is provided with pain control and hands-on monitoring by our veterinary technicians to ensure they are stable & safe throughout their procedure & recovery. Surgeries are booked every Tuesday and Thursday. If your pet is a new patient to us, they will first need to be examined by our veterinarians so that they may be fully aware of your pet’s health status, and to ensure that it is safe for them to undergo surgery. Please call us at 613-392-8900 with any questions you may have or to book your pet’s surgical appointment.
Quinte Animal Hospital – Where Pets are Treated Like Family
Oral health is an extremely important part of your pet’s overall condition. We believe in maintaining clean, healthy smiles and preventing oral pain and disease for your pet. We provide dental cleanings, polishing, charting and extractions. We are excited to offer dental radiology as a means of determining the health of individual teeth as well as the jaw bone. We are also advocates of preventative home dental care. If you have any concerns about your pet’s dental health please call us to book a dental assessment, and we will discuss dentistry as well as create a plan for you to help your pet’s teeth stay clean and healthy right from your own home.
Radiology and Ultrasound
We offer on-site diagnostic radiology and ultrasound, which gives us a more complete picture of your pet’s health status and allows us to better diagnose their condition. We also work with a board certified radiologist who will come to our hospital and perform diagnostic ultrasounds.
Dr. Peck-Callan has completed several courses at the Chi Institute in Florida for the use of Chinese Herbals. She uses Eastern Veterinary medical treatments to augment traditional medicine to assist in the care of your pet as part of an alternative treatment plan.
We are happy to be able to offer acupuncture to our patients as an alternative method of treatment for them. It is a therapeutic method that is used to encourage natural healing as well as to reduce pain. It is safe and we offer it in place of other treatments in cases where surgery or extensive medications are the only other choices. We offer package rates as many pets will require more than one treatment. Please call or email us with any questions regarding acupuncture and whether it is appropriate for your pet.
At Quinte Animal Hospital we support and believe in our troops. We are proud to call a military town our home and as such we are very excited to offer our military members a discount on our preventative services. Call us or email today to enquire about it and receive more details.
