We want to keep your pet in good health, so we offer thorough wellness exams, all needed vaccines, and effective flea and heart-worm preventatives. We explain our recommendations so that you can make truly informed decisions.
Our doctors are ready to respond with the most appropriate medicine and surgery when your pet is sick or injured. We can manage many advanced problems. Our doctors perform standard spay and neuter surgeries and many advanced procedures that make use of our laser, endoscopy, and ultrasound equipment.
We use gas anesthesia in surgery, pulse oximetry for monitoring, and emphasize post-operative pain management like you would find in a human hospital. Not all veterinary practices do.
Dental cleanings are so important to your pet's health that we celebrate National Pet Dental Health Month twice a year - February and October. Good dental health is a part of what helps a beloved pet live to be very old so we always check for tartar buildup during exams. We have certified dental technicians on staff to take care of your pet's teeth.
Avian/Exotics Dr. David Martinez and Dr. Tammy Parker lead the Loving Hands team in the treatment and care of birds and exotic pets. Dr. Martinez spent two years at the London Zoo earlier in his career.
Pet behavior is taken seriously at Loving Hands. Our doctors explain pet behavior and coach clients on effective behavior modification techniques. We recommend that all new dogs and their owners participate in obedience training and frequently offer on-site classes.
Stem Cell Therapy
Stem cells harvested from your pet’s own fat are cutting-edge therapy for arthritis. Stem cells work by influencing the body’s healing, regenerative, and inflammatory systems to change the primary disease process, unlike medications, which mostly manage pain and secondary effects. More than a third of patients no longer need pain medication within three months of a single stem cell treatment.
Dr. Roesner and Dr. Ellis are trained to administer Stem Cell Therapy. Loving Hands is currently offering treatment to qualified patients at a promotional price for a limited time. Call and ask to talk with one of the doctors if you are interested.
“Stem cell therapy offers hope for pets dogged by pain” is a USA Today story from February 2008 when the treatment was first becoming available outside of research institutions. Click on the title to view the story.
