Our staff at Companion Animal Hospital is filled with passionate animal lovers who are here to help you and your pet! They are highly trained and dedicated to making sure that your pets receive the care and compassion they deserve every time they walk in the door!
We offer the following services to keep your pets healthy:
We are happy to provide care for poultry as well as pet birds. Our team is trained and experienced in caring for avian patients, so we want you to know that your bird is receiving top quality care.
There are many health issues associated with various types of birds, so it’s important to consult with us about your bird’s health. It’s also important for them to receive regular checkups so that we can establish a baseline in their body chemistry and detect any potentially harmful changes.
We are equipped with a state of the art class 4 laser that allows us to treat a variety of ailments without the use of pharmaceuticals. We’re proud to be one of the few clinics in town to offer this service!
Dental care is vital to the overall health of any pet. Dental disease can lead to health issues with the heart, liver, and kidneys and has the potential to seep into your pet’s bloodstream. In fact, 80 percent of dogs and 70 percent of cats over three years of age suffer from some form of dental disease, making it the most common pet health issue among our pet population.
Spay and Neuter
Spaying and neutering are important and necessary medical procedures that enhance the quality of your pets’ life. Not only does spaying and neutering have positive effects on your pets’ health, it’s also vital to controlling the homeless pet population.
At Companion Animal Hospital, we are happy to offer microchipping. Every year, thousands and thousands of pets go missing. Not knowing where your pet is or how to bring them back can be a helpless, hopeless feeling. It’s a tragedy that happens all too often.
But there is a simple, safe, and effective way to ensure your pet’s safety and retrieval should he or she ever become lost. Microchipping is a standard procedure that implants a tiny chip underneath your pet’s fur. It is a painless and relatively fast procedure and is completely safe.
At Companion Animal Hospital in Austin, TX , we believe that regular checkups and wellness exams are critical to your pets’ well-being. These wellness exams give us a chance to evaluate the overall health of your pet while also giving us a baseline for their unique bodies and tendencies.
Not only do these exams keep us up-to-date with your pets’ health, but they also allow us to detect potential problems before they become serious. This thorough checkup gives us vital information to help keep your pet healthy!
We’re happy to provide guidance and recommendations regarding your pet’s nutritional needs for every life stage. Additionally, we carry a full line of prescription diets, a popular grain free diet, and a whole food nutritional supplement so that we’re able to best meet the needs of each and every patient.
The idea of your pet being infested with parasites is a disturbing thought, but it’s also a medical issue that can have serious consequences if not properly dealt with or prevented. Parasites pose a variety of health issues for our pets, who can be very susceptible to certain parasites depending on age, region, and other factors.
At Companion Animal Hospital, we emphasize the importance of preventing parasites. Through preventative measures, you can successfully protect your pet. Pets that are not protected often develop parasites, leading to serious problems for them and their owners.
Ultrasounding is a quick and painless procedure. It uses sound waves to allow us to see inside your pets, without using the harmful radiation produced when we take x-rays.
We are pleased to be able to offer ultrasounds, along with all of our other diagnostic tools, to help your sick pets start to feel better soon. The quicker we can find the problem, the sooner your pets will be back to their normal selves.
We have state-of-the-art diagnostic tools that allow our staff to diagnose your pets’ condition or illness better. It is our commitment to stay on the cutting edge of diagnostic technology.
Having these advanced diagnostic tools allows us to examine specific areas more carefully and provide a quicker and more accurate diagnosis. We use many tools such as radiology, lab tests, and various other equipment and tests.
Our in-house laboratory allows us to provide serum chemistry, hematology, serology, urinalysis and parasite testing. In addition, we also utilize commercial veterinary laboratories for specialized diagnostics and consultations.
We maintain a complete inventory of pharmaceuticals, vitamins, supplements, shampoos, flea and tick control products and heartworm preventatives to meet the needs of your pet.
Your pets’ skin is the largest organ of the body. Allergies, parasites, infections, autoimmune diseases and cancers can all affect your pet’s skin.
We offer specific diagnostic tests like allergy testing, fungal testing, cultures and biopsies, along with the most cutting edge treatments to ensure the health of your pets’ skin.
Endoscopy is a nonsurgical procedure that utilizes a flexible tool called an endoscope. The endoscope is a highly specialized tool that allows veterinarians to see inside your pet’s body in a minimally invasive way.
Endoscopy allows veterinarians to provide better and earlier diagnosis, making it a valuable tool to modern veterinary medicine.
Endoscopic procedures are used in a variety of different ways for a number of ailments. If you would like to learn more about how endoscopy can benefit your pet please don’t hesitate to contact us today at (512) 288-2713.
