Comprehensive Health Exams
Your pet is examined from nose to tail for any health concerns.
A general health exam is $65, but can vary on how extensive the issue is. *

Diagnostic services
On healthy patients we do tests such as an "all-in-one" 4DX test (for Heartworms, Lyme Disease, Erlichia, and Anaplasma).  When your pet is not feeling well, we have many tests that we can perform right here in the hospital to find a diagnosis:  general bloodwork, thyroid test, cytology (for skin, ears, and growths), urinalysis, fecal floats, and SNAP tests for giardia and pancreatitis. 
4DX test - $45,     fecal - $20,     Urinalysis- $30,     general CBC/Chem - $150  *

Vaccines
Vaccines are given yearly to keep your pet healthy. Dogs are protected for Rabies, Distemper, Parvovirus, Hepatitis, Leptospirosis, Lyme Disease, and Bordetella ("kennel cough").  Cats need vaccines for Rabies and Distemper; they also need to protected against Feline Leukemia if they go outside, or to a grooming/boarding facility.
When given with exams, most vaccines are about $35 

Spay/neuter surgeries
Spaying and neutering your pet helps to prevent health concern that can happen later in life, like certain cancers.  It is important to have the surgery done BEFORE the animal's first heat, a good time frame is when they are about 5 months old.  It can also prevent unwanted behaviors such as aggression and urine spraying/marking.  Male dogs and cats generally go home the same day; the females generally stay over for one night. As with any procedure requiring anesthesia, your pet has an IV catheter and fluids, monitors, and is kept on a heating pad for warmth and comfort.  Pain medications are given, and we use our Laser healing equipment to speed incision healing and reduce pain and swelling.
Cat neuter  $100   . . .  immature cat spay  $450  . . .  20 lb puppy spay $450  . . .  50 lb puppy spay  $550. .  20 lb puppy neuter  $450. . .  50lb puppy neuter  $500  *

Dentistry
Dental care is very important to your pet's overall health.  A build up of tartar, plaque, and bacteria in the mouth will lead to tooth decay, root erosion, and will effect the other organs in the body, as the bacteria will travel from the mouth to the heart, liver, kidneys, etc.  Brushing your dog or cat's teeth is a great habit!  Just like with us, their teeth will stay healthier.  When there is too much tartar and plaque to take off by brushing, or if your pet has a tooth abscess or loose teeth, then a dental procedure is required.  This does need to be done under general anesthesia which is a very common concern for pet owners.  "Why do they need to go under anesthesia? I get my teeth cleaned when I'm awake." Please see the following link regarding pet dentals and anesthesia:  American Veterinary Dentistry College.   A thorough pet dentistry requires an IV catheter and fluids, monitors, general anesthesia, removal of diseased teeth, and scaling and polishing of healthy teeth.  Lab work is sometimes required and always recommended for safety. Animals with extractions will be sent home on antibiotics and pain medication, and sometimes are kept overnight.
A dental procedure can vary greatly in cost depending on the size of the pet and if there are any extractions.  A range can be anywhere from $400 (cat with no extractions) to $900 (bigger dog with several extractions).

X-ays
When your pet is not feeling well, an x-ray is a non-invasive way to detect the cause. We can see broken bones, arthritis, the general shape/size of the organs, and sometimes evidence of cancer or foreign bodies (an object stuck in their stomach or intestines that will not pass).
Depending on the size of the pet, the part of the body needing to be x-rayed, and how many x-rays we take, the cost can range from $120 - 200.  If the pet needs to be given sedation or anesthesia, there is an additional cost.  *

 LASER Therapy
Laser Therapy is a surgery free, drug free, non-invasive treatment for most injuries and conditions.  The trained certified staff use a Class IV deep tissue beam of laser light to deeply penetrate tissue without damaging healthy cells.  The laser beam induces a biological response in the cells called "photo-bio-modulation" which leads to reduced pain, reduced inflammation, and increased healing speed.  A non-invasive hand piece is used at the site; the pet may feel a gentle warmth in the area.  Most treatments only take several minutes.  The therapy laser is routinely used at Silver Lake Animal Hospital  in most post-surgical cases.  It can be used for acute conditions such as: wounds, infections, cuts/bites, inflammation, tooth extractions, and fractures/sprains/strains. The laser therapy machine also benefits chronic conditions such as: arthritis, otitis, lick granulomas, IBD, degenerative joint disease, cystitis, stomatitis, hip dysplasia, tendonitits, and more.  Most conditions require several sessions to be most beneficial; some chronic conditions, like severe and chronic arthritis or otitis (ear infections) benefit greatly from continued maintenance sessions.  
If you think Laser Therapy would benefit your pet, please call and speak to a staff member!

We also have several Board Certified specialists that we work with for specific issues, such as for orthopedic surgery and ultrasounds.
