Pet Medical Services
Routine medical care, dental care, and surgical procedures can be scheduled five days per week with additional hour options for emergencies.
Pet Orthopedic Surgery
Hip and knee issues can change the quality of life for a pet. Dr. Owen Allphin has been performing affordable pet surgeries since 1994. Your fur babies can sustain injuries to their bones or joints, causing them to limp or have trouble walking. Pet surgery can help better diagnose these issues and treat them.
The Allphin Family of Veterinary Clinics is happy to offer FREE second opinion exams for patients who have been recommended for surgery by another animal hospital.
Our staff will provide you with a treatment plan to help put life back into your pet’s day.
Our goal as your veterinary clinic is to give your pets all the same love, affection, and care that they give to you!
The in-house x-ray machine allows the doctors to have a clear picture of your pets needs so that a treatment plan can begin as soon as possible.
With the advances in digital x-ray technology, we can now manipulate the digital images that we take off a pet’s systems to see what is wrong. This has allowed us to detect things like hairline fractures and orthopedic conditions that were previously not visible. We share these digital images with specialists who consult with us on difficult cases.
Radiology (x-rays) is routinely used to provide valuable information about a pet’s bones, gastrointestinal tract (stomach, intestines, colon), respiratory tract (lungs), heart, and genitourinary system (bladder, prostate). It can be used alone or in conjunction with other diagnostic tools to provide a list of possible causes for a pet’s condition, identify the exact cause of a problem or rule out possible problems.
Pet Laser Surgery
The laser has the unique ability to vaporize tissue and is commonly used to make incisions and erase unhealthy tissue. It is so precise, that we are able to selectively remove only a few cells at a time. The laser kills bacteria in its path and seals nerve endings, leaving patients more comfortable after surgery by causing less trauma to tissue, resulting in a faster recovery time.
We are one of the only animal hospitals in the area using this technology on a regular basis. Laser surgery is so beneficial we are committed to keeping the price reasonable for our surgical patients.
Pet Laser Therapy
If your pet experiences a soft tissue injury, chronic pain, or a wound that needs some more help healing, our doctors may add Laser Therapy to your pet’s treatment plan. Therapeutic laser is the application of light energy to areas of the body to stimulate and accelerate healing. Therapeutic laser reduces pain by decreasing inflammation, as well as by decreasing tissue chemicals that stimulate pain and by affecting nerve conduction. The therapeutic laser also enhances healing by increasing microcirculation (blood flow through the smaller blood vessels of the body), stimulating cellular activity, and increasing growth factors.
Ultrasonography is a type of diagnostic technique that uses ultrasound waves to produce an imaging study. This means that when we perform ultrasonography, we can see internal images of the patient’s body. Unlike some other imaging studies, like x-rays, ultrasonography does not use radiation. Instead, ultrasonography uses high-frequency sound (ultrasound) waves to create a picture of what is inside your pet’s body. Ultrasonography is a completely non-invasive, painless way to diagnose and evaluate many common diseases.
Allphin Veterinary Clinic prides itself in being a complete pet care complex with staff trained in the use of the latest veterinary equipment. One of these tools, called an endoscope, is a long, flexible tube with a tiny camera at its tip. A channel inside the tube allows the veterinarian to insert a variety of small instruments for obtaining biopsy samples or retrieving foreign objects.
Since this is an invasive veterinary procedure, pets will need to be anesthetized. Once safely under anesthesia, the tip of the endoscope is lightly lubricated and then inserted into the appropriate opening. Veterinary endoscopy enables a veterinarian to examine the inner linings of your pet’s nose, throat, lungs, stomach, intestine, or colon. In addition to viewing and photographing these tissues from the inside, our veterinarians can clip small biopsy samples from tissues for analysis in our in-house laboratory or retrieve foreign bodies your pet may have ingested.
Unlike exploratory surgery, your pet experiences no pain or recovery period following an endoscopic exam.
Dog Dental Services
Dog breath is an insult we’ve all heard at some point. The Allphin Veterinary clinic offers pet dental services to keep your pets’ breath fresh and to help keep them healthy. Dental care for animals not only helps treat and prevent dental diseases, but it helps protect your pet from heart, liver, and kidney diseases just like humans.
Schedule your pets dental appointment today, and take proactive steps to keep your friend happy and healthy. We also have an In-house Pharmacy for your convenience.
Pet Dental Radiography
We are proud that we have the most up-to-date equipment to treat dental disease, including digital dental x-rays. This allows us to detect if there is any disease beneath the gum line that we would not be able to see otherwise. We are often able to see undetected abscesses, broken teeth, resorbed roots, retained roots, and more thanks to dental radiographs.
