At Hurley’s Veterinary Hospital we provide the following services:
Cryosurgery is surgery performed by freezing the tissue to be removed, eg. doctors do it to remove verucas from foot or warts from hands. There is no surgery as such performed.
Hurley’s Veterinary Hospital is excited to offer state-of-the-art laser surgery. Laser surgery uses an intense beam of light that is precisely focused to allow it to cut tissue, much as a scalpel does. The energy contained in the laser beam vaporizes the water found in body tissues, allowing a precise “cut” that seals blood vessels and nerve endings, resulting in less bleeding and pain. Additional benefits of laser surgery are reduced swelling at the surgery site, reduced risk of infection, and a quicker recovery from many surgical procedures. A surgical laser has many applications in veterinary medicine, including feline de-claws, mass removals, dental procedures, and upper airway surgery (soft palate resection and stenotic nares) in brachycephalic breeds such as the Bulldog and Pug. There are many other potential uses as well. Please ask our staff veterinarians if laser surgery is right for your pet.
Teeth Descaling & Polishing
Animals (like people) need regular dental care. Gum disease causes pain, accounts for the loss of teeth, and can lead to serious generalized bacterial infections. Our physical exams include a thorough examination of the mouth. Teeth cleaning (removal of dental plaque and tartar) is an important step in preventing dental problems.
Gaseous Anaesthesia (Inhalation Method, Instant Recovery)
Anaesthetic procedures are performed with continuous monitoring of pulse rate, blood pressure and respiration to ensure your pet’s safety.
Ultrasound imaging is useful for pregnancy diagnosis, and allows us to look at the internal “texture” of different organs and tissues in order to determine whether there is some sort of disease or injury. We can also determine the nature of a disease or injury and whether treatment is having the desired effect.
Our facilities at Hurley’s Veterinary Hospital utilize the highest standards of sterility and equipment to ensure your pet receives the best care possible.
Essential for the older patient that has developed a cough, or maybe tires very easily, the ECG (Electrocardiograph) allows us to measure cardiac output, and monitor and treat heart failure. One in five older patients have some cardiac problem.
