Our experienced veterinary team provides comprehensive medical care, ranging from routine to advanced procedures and treatments.
Although we handle the majority of your pet’s medical and surgical needs in-house, we occasionally refer patients to veterinary specialists or specialty clinics when advanced training or equipment will be beneficial. Below you will find a list of treatments that we currently offer in-house.
Our veterinary team has you covered!
Veterinary internal medicine refers to the use of advanced diagnostic services and treatment plans for illnesses related to the internal body systems of animals. Our team can help diagnose and treat conditions of the GI system, kidneys, liver, heart, nervous system, endocrine glands, bladder, and respiratory systems. We also treat blood disorders, immune deficiencies, and infectious diseases.
Stone Ridge Veterinary Medical Center has access to a board-certified veterinary surgeon who offers a variety of modern orthopedic surgical procedures to aid your pet in the healing process after an accident. Whether it is a torn ACL, a fracture, or a luxating patella, our passionate and devoted team is willing and prepared to do whatever is necessary to get your pet back on its feet.
If you are concerned about your pet’s eyes or vision, we can help. Our veterinarians can help diagnose and treat a variety of ophthalmological issues, including but not limited to, dry eyes, corneal infection or trauma, and glaucoma. It is important to report any changes in your pet’s eyes or vision during your routine veterinary visits.
Whether a pet has a congenital heart condition or a cardiology issue that has developed over time, diagnosing a heart condition early can allow your pet to lead a long, healthy life and avoid heart failure. Call us if your pet starts breathing rapidly or coughing, loses his or her appetite, tires easily, seems weak, or has trouble exercising.
A cancer diagnosis for your pet can be scary. Our veterinarians want you to know there are more treatment options available now than in the past. We have years of advanced study and experience in treating pet cancers and almost every pet can be helped to some degree. For some pets, that may mean a cure; for others, we focus on palliative treatments that provide an improved quality of life.
The endocrine glands include the pituitary, thyroid, parathyroid, pancreas, adrenals, ovaries, and testes. Each of these glands secretes a type of hormone into the bloodstream that regulates various body systems. These serious, potentially life-threatening conditions are much more manageable when caught early, allowing us to begin proper treatment.
Our veterinarians work with you to determine the cause of pain and teach you how to recognize pain in your pet. Acute or chronic pain affects your pet’s ability to physically function and can also have a detrimental effect on their well-being and state of mind. Pain management is one of our primary considerations when treating a pet for any medical condition.
Laser therapy is often used in conjunction with physical therapy or rehab and is a non-invasive, pain-free treatment that helps to reduce inflammation, decrease pain, and aid in healing. Laser therapy is good for post-surgical patients, chronic arthritis, skin conditions, muscle strains and sprains, joint or disc disease, wounds, bites, and burns.
Blood & Plasma Transfusions
Blood transfusion (including transfusion of blood products, like plasma) is a critically important service that can mean the difference between life and death for your pet. All blood is carefully screened for safety, handled carefully to ensure delivery of healthy cells, and administered by experienced professionals. Our staff has been extensively trained and will handle your pet with care and compassion.
Hip and elbow dysplasia is a common condition that affects dogs and can cause debilitating and painful conditions for your pet. OFA Hip & Elbow evaluation/certification helps pet owners and breeders to evaluate the hip joint before breeding. We strongly recommend OFA Hip & Elbow certification before breeding a female, before the purchase of a puppy, and/or to evaluate your pet's hip condition.
Hospice & Euthanasia
Deciding when your pet may need hospice care or euthanasia is a very personal and private decision, but that doesn’t mean you have to make this difficult choice on your own. Our hospice and humane euthanasia services are conducted with respect, compassion, and care. If you are worried you have a sick, elderly, or terminally ill pet that is suffering, call us to learn how we can help.
Many of our clients travel with their pets, even when going abroad. Often they’ll need a health certificate to accompany their pet. You will want to make sure you know the requirements of the carrier and/or destination, and then plan ahead: make your appointment with the USDA (if required), have your pet’s vaccinations and tests performed in the appropriate time frame, and schedule your appointment appropriately.
