Small Animal Services

Small_1.jpg Because of the shorter lifespan of our pets, we stress the importance of an annual physical examination. Thorough check-ups and preventive care can help alleviate serious health problems. We offer a wide range of veterinary services to keep your companions feeling their best. At Coastal Animal Hospital we focus on total body health and treat illnesses using a multi-modal approach which yields much higher success rates than conventional medicine alone. New clients can visit our New Clients & Boarders page to print & fill out forms before you arrive.

Small_2.jpg Anesthesia

We utilize the safest available inhalent anesthetics to provide an extra margin of safety, especially for our older or high-risk patients. Using the most modern equipment, the patient's vital signs(pulse oximetery, ecg and blood pressure) are monitored during all anesthetic procedures. There is always a surgical nurse dedicated to your pet from the time they undergo anesthesia until the time they awake. The nurses sole responsibility is to monitor your pets anesthetic level, ECG, blood pressure and saturated blood oxygen level. We take great pride in providing the highest quality of care possible. Certain surgical procedures may be slightly higher in price and this is the reason why. We refuse to cut corners for the sake of cost, and if you are inclined to shop surgical services then these are critical questions to ask and understand the potential consequences of if not provided.
