Ultrasound and Endoscopy

Ultrasound is a non-invasive imaging procedure that enables our veterinary clinic to see an in-depth view of your pet’s organs. It provides a visual map of the interior of the body and is crucial to the comprehensive diagnosis of disease.
Endoscopy is a nonsurgical method of allowing us to view the esophagus, stomach and gastrointestinal tract. It is performed with a fiber optic instrument and can allow our animal hospital to obtain biopsies and determine if surgery is needed.

Surgery

The Animal Hospital of Northwood is equipped to handle both routine and complex surgical procedures, from elective spays and neuters to sophisticated soft tissue and orthopedic procedures. We can even utilize board certified specialist surgeons if needed. Our veterinarians at the Animal Hospital of Northwood provide individualized anesthetic and pain management protocols for each patient undergoing surgery. Pain medication is administered prior to and post-surgery to ensure your pets comfort as well as to speed their recovery.

Many patients are able to return home the same day, while more complex surgeries may require additional hospitalization.

All patients are examined prior to anesthesia and surgery and will have a pre-anesthetic blood profile performed. This testing can significantly reduce medical risk and insure your pet’s health and safety.
Surgical patients will have an intravenous catheter placed. During surgery IV fluids are administered through-out the procedure. These fluids help maintain blood pressure and protect against dehydration. All surgical patients are monitored for temperature, oxygen level, EKG, heart rate, blood pressure and CO2 levels during surgery by a trained and dedicated technician. Post-surgical patients are closely monitored as they recover. Stop by and ask for a tour of our surgery suite.

The Animal Hospital of Northwood is accepting new patients from the Safety Harbor, Clearwater, Dunedin, Palm Harbor and Oldsmar area. We would be happy to help your pet.

Routine and Advanced Dental Care

Routine And Advanced Dental Care
Bad breath is more than an annoyance it can usually be an indication of dental problems.
85% of dogs and cats over the age of 3 years have some form of dental disease, making it one of the most common problems we see in dogs and cats.

Dental disease left untreated can cause gingivitis, infection, and tooth loss. Poor dental hygiene leads to the buildup of tartar and bacteria that is constantly being swallowed. Periodontal disease can lead to cardiac issues and kidney disease, and studies have shown that untreated dental disease can potentially spread infection throughout the body.

Drop Off Appointments

For your convenience, the Animal Hospital of Northwood is now offering drop off appointments! This will allow you to bring your pet in, speak with one of our staff members and then schedule a pick up later in the day.

This works great for not having to call off work but your pet doesn’t have to wait either! You can take advantage of this service for your pet’s routine care or for a sudden sick visit! A fee of $17.50 reserves a condo for your pet to stay for the day (pets picked up prior to close), and monitoring by our staff. We can administer medication and we will feed (if applicable) and walk dogs during the day.

Prior to dropping your pet off, we ask that you fill out a drop off exam questionnaire form for sick pets or the annual drop off form for wellness visits. We accept drop-offs between 8 am and 10 am Monday- Friday.
