We're pleased to offer the following veterinary services at Prytania Veterinary Hospital:
Vaccinations & Wellness Care
We strive to promote healthy lifestyles and prevent illness whenever possible. The time and effort invested in wellness programs has rewards for both pets and owners. Our wellness programs are designed specifically for your pet and include: comprehensive physical exam, internal parasite testing, vaccination program, heartworm and flea control, and specialized blood tests for all life stages.
Professional cleaning can be important to maintaining your pet’s dental health. We use a modern and safe ultrasonic scaler to thoroughly clean each tooth – above and below the gum line. Dental technicians polish teeth to create a smooth tooth surface more resistant to plaque build-up. More advanced dental care is also available.
Our fully trained veterinary/technical staff ensures the safest, most efficient, state-of-the-art procedures for your pet. All patients are carefully screened pre-operatively, and anesthetics are specifically tailored for your pet’s individual needs. A surgical technician carefully monitors your pet throughout the entire procedure until they are fully recovered. We follow the same protocol your surgeon would and monitor using ECG, temperature, blood pressure, and pulse-oximeter.
Emergency and critical care
We are equipped to handle emergencies anytime during our office hours with all necessary emergency equipment, drugs, and personnel. When possible, please call us at 504-899-2828 so we can prepare for your pet.
Our state-of-the-art digital x-ray machine allows our veterinarians to diagnose and better treat your pet. The increased resolution and speed allows for a virtually stress-free experience.
This non-invasive technology uses sound waves to painlessly examine the heart and abdominal organs. Pregnancy exams are also available.
We cover all areas of internal medicine, including: cardiology, ophthalmology, neurology, dermatology, gastroenterology, oncology, and endocrinology.
Some pets require a prescription food, and all pets benefit from a balanced diet. As with people, many medical problems can be reversed by simply changing out pets' food. Our well-trained staff is available to help you choose the right diet for your pet to keep him or her happy, healthy, and active. As a convenience to our clients, we stock Science Diet ® as well as prescription diets for a variety of medical conditions.
Dogs and cats feel pain and discomfort just like we do. We know that recognizing and alleviating pain in animals is the essence of good patient care. This is especially important since animals cannot tell us when or where they’re hurting.
Microchips have helped reunite thousands of pets with their families. We offer HomeAgain microchips to increase the chances of a safe recovery. Annual microchip registration also includes lost pet recovery help and free calls to Animal Poison Control.
