The Arvada vet clinic, Indian Tree Animal Hospital offers a full range of veterinary services to care for your pet. In addition to traditional medical treatments, we can offer your pet Eastern Medicine therapy options, such as acupuncture and herbal medications.
Importance of Annual Wellness Exams
Because of the shorter life span of our pets, we stress the importance of Annual Wellness Exams. Our comprehensive examinations can detect problems in their early stages, before they become serious illnesses requiring prolonged treatment. Preventative medicine is the easiest, least expensive and most important way to keep your pet healthy.
Our Arvada vet hospital provides a wide range of surgical procedures from spaying/neutering to orthopedic surgeries to dentistry. See our Surgery page to learn more about our extra margin of safety and the modern technology of laser surgery.
Clean teeth and healthy gums are essential to your pet's health. Infections are more common in the mouth because they can go undetected for long periods of time. Our veterinary staff regularly performs oral exams, cleanings and periodontal care as part of our comprehensive health care goals.
Some Signs of Dental Problems include:
Dental problems, if left untreated, can often lead to larger systemic problems in your pet due to oral bacteria entering the blood stream and damaging the kidneys, heart and liver.
- Bad breath – one of the first signs of dental disease
- A yellowish-brown crust of plaque on the teeth near the gum line
- Red and swollen gums
- Pain or bleeding when your pet eats or when the mouth or gums are touched
- Decreased appetite or difficulty eating
- Loose or missing teeth
We offer on-site ultrasounds procedures which helps us with the diagnosis of more complicated cases. For more complicated ultrasound procedures, we are able to schedule an appointment for your pet with a Board Certified Imaging Specialist at Indian Tree Animal Hospital.
Our on-site, modern digital X-ray equipment provides high quality radiographs to aid in the quick diagnosis of many disorders. We have all our radiographs evaluated by a Board Certified Radiologist.
Proper diet is an important part of your pet's health. Should your pet need a new diet due to health concerns or you are just looking for a healthy alternative to your current brand, we offer individual consultations and nutritional plans to help keep your pet healthy.
Pets often show illness or anxiety through improper or changed behavior. Let our our vet in Arvada CO and our staff help you determine what is appropriate behavior and what you can do to change inappropriate behavior.
Hair loss and constant scratching can indicate fleas, food allergies or other more serious skin conditions. We provide specialized dermatological services to all of our patients including allergy testing and desensitization treatments.
In- House Laboratory
Our in-house laboratory facilities provide for serum chemistry, hematology, serology, urinalysis and parasite testing. We also utilize commercial veterinary laboratories for specialized diagnostics and consultations.
This unique form of identification is an easy, yet permanent way to bring your pet home quickly should he/she become lost. The microchip is a tiny electronic device, about the size and shape of a grain of rice. It is implanted beneath your pet's skin between the shoulder blades, and stays there for his/her entire life. This procedure is as easy and as painless as a vaccination.
Each microchip has a unique number. This number, along with information about the owner and pet, are added to a national pet registry. Most veterinary hospitals and animal shelters have electronic scanners for detecting and reading these implanted microchips. If a lost pet is found and a microchip is scanned it is easy for you to be contacted.
