Preventative Medicine
and Wellness

The prevention of disease and enhancement of healthy pets is the primary goal in good medicine. Physical exams, vaccinations, parasite prevention, nutritional and behavioral issues are part of that program and help to ensure the health of your beloved pet.

We want to make sure that your pet is happy and healthy. If we do find a medical issue, it will be far better that we catch it early than if it goes unnoticed. Preventative medicine helps your pet live a long life by your side!​

Medical and
Diagnostics

Tallmadge Animal Hospital offers a range of advanced medical and diagnostic services, including digital x-rays, ultrasound, endoscopy, and laboratory testing. Endoscopy is an excellent diagnostic and surgical tool for upper and lower GI studies, cystoscopy of the urinary bladder, bronchoscopy and rhinoscopy for the respiratory system, laproscopic surgical procedures and arthoroscopic procedures. Endoscopy is very helpful in diagnosing the cause of your pet's vomiting, diarrhea, weight loss, abdominal pain or swelling and loss of appetite.

We have a complement of 4 scopes for medical and diagnostic procedures. Imaging – X-rays and contrast radiology are important diagnostic tools. We use both a standard X-ray machine and a dental-specific X-ray machine. The addition of a new Siemens G50 color Doppler ultrasound unit greatly complements and enhances the imaging of tissues, heart and abdominal organs.

Dentistry

Dental health is extremely important to pets. Periodontal disease is known to be a source of many kidney and heart problems. Pets need regular dental cleanings and treatment to minimize or prevent advancing periodontal disease. Tallmadge Animal Hospital has an excellent dental facility for both general dentistry and endodontic procedures. The use of digital dental X-rays is a great asset for radiographing pets’ teeth to properly evaluate the extent of disease and plan for the most appropriate treatment.

Digital radiographs produce excellent images in much less time and better allow for root canal procedures. Root canals are performed using a “Light Speed” endodontic system. Besides regular cleanings, pets need home dental care to help slow or prevent advancing periodontal disease and tooth loss. We will happily educate you on how to take care of your pet's teeth! Cats are at particular risk for odontoclastic resorptive lesions (neck lesions) that destroy the tooth at the gum line or the roots. Pets are routinely X-rayed during dental procedures.

Surgery

The surgery suite of Tallmadge Animal Hospital is well equipped for all general and orthopedic surgery and has been augmented with an advanced laser surgical unit since 2000. Surgery procedures meet or exceed AAHA standards, and they are done with the utmost concern for the patient's well-being. Careful monitoring is primary to each patient. Pulse oximetry, monitoring equipment, and well-trained assistants ensure that watchful attention is given each pet. Rest assured, your pet will be in great hands using modern equipment. + Read more

Laboratory Testing

Laboratory testing is an important tool in diagnosing beyond the physical examination. Routine testing for preventative and early diagnosis is employed for heartworm and intestinal parasites. Blood profiles and specialized tests are commonly used in diagnostic procedures. The patient monitor provides ECG’s, pulse oximetry, blood pressure, respiration, and carbon dioxide readings.

The Ultrasound unit is part of the imagery equipment, and is used to detect many soft tissue anomalies. We use ultrasound to examine abdominal structures, perform pregnancy diagnostics, examine your pet's cardiac function and check for certain diseases in the eye.
