Gulfport Veterinarian is a full service animal hospital offering the following services
General Wellness and Preventative Medicine
Our animal hospital provides a well rounded and sensible approach to Wellness and Preventative Medicine. We highly recommend a yearly wellness evaluation and physical examination. Routine examinations will help head off many potential serious diseases while they still can be treated. We also believe a sensible preventative vaccination program that fits the patient best. Of course heartworm prevention and flea and tick control are also a mainstay.
Diagnosis – Treatment – Hospitalization
We provide the means for the diagnosis, treatment and/or hospitalization of sick or injured patients, with the best medical and surgical care possible. Administration of injectable and oral medications, intravenous fluid administration, oxygen therapy and tube feeding may be some of the procedures required to treat one of our patients
Surgery (General – Orthopedic – Special)
General Surgery, which includes, but not limited to, routine spays/neuters, tumor removals and other soft tissue procedures can performed on a daily basis.
Most Orthopedic and other specialized surgeries can be performed at the Gulfport Veterinarian animal hospital. We use Onsite Veterinary Surgical Services when needed to provide these services at Gulfport Veterinarain. This prevents us from having to to refer many cases to another specialty animal hospital, and also allows our clients to have these services performed at a reduced fee.
Some of the orthopedic surgeries which can be performed are fracture repair, stifle repair (knee surgery), medial patella luxations, femoral head ostectomies and Tibial Tuberosity Advancement (TTA) for cruciate injuries.
At Gulfport Veterinaian our animal hospital is equipped with the state of the art digital radiography system (x-rays) to obtain very high quality radiographs and produce them in a manner of seconds, for quick reading. Due to the short time to take, process and view the radiographs, there is significant less stress on the patient. We can also electronically transmit the radiographs for review to a Board Certified Veterinary Radiologist, if necessary. This gives us of the ability to have a veterinary radiologist at Gulfport Veterinarian, a distinct plus for our ability to provide better care at our animal hospital.
Prophylactic Dental Cleaning
Gulfport Veterinarian provides prophylactic dental cleaning services to remove the plague that builds up on your pets teeth. Minimally, this should be done yearly and in some cases every 6 months may be indicated. The plague build up, if left unchecked, will cause gum infction, periodontal disease and the lose of teeth. Only that, but the infected gums can cause bacteria to be absorbed into the blood stream and eventually affect internal organs, such as the heart, liver and kidneys. Preventing this, can lead to much longer and happier life for your pet.
We can also perform simple dental extractions. In needed, surgical intervention to remove the affected tooth can be performed by Onsite Veterinary Surgical Services, thus preventing significant expense if the extraction was performed by a veterinary dentist.
In House Laboratory Services
Gulfport Veterinarian has its own in-house laboratory which provides our animal hospital with the flexibility to carry out necessary laboratory tests, such as complete blood counts, blood sugar levels, kidney function and liver function. This service provides our patients and clients with quick results and not having to send the blood tests out to an outside laboratory. This also helps reduce the cost for laboratory testing for our Gulfport Veterinarian clients.
Gulfport Veterinarian also maintains a fully stocked medical pharmacy, so that our clients have the convenience obtain the pet’s needed medications at the animal hospital and not have to make another stop before returning home with their pet
