Here at Best Friends Animal Hospital, your veterinarian in Winnipeg, we keep pets healthy within an old-fashioned atmosphere of caring and compassion. But our facilities and services are anything but old-fashioned. Read on to learn more about the services we provide in our modern, medically self-sufficient practice.
Pet wellness is our number one goal and this starts with annual visits to our animal hospital. During a wellness exam, we give your pet a complete physical to determine if there are any health issues that we need to address. We’ll also administer any necessary vaccinations to keep your pet protected against serious and sometimes deadly diseases.
When medical services are needed, Best Friends Animal Hospital is here to treat both small animals and exotics. We first perform a complete assessment of your pet and then, using our in-house lab, radiology and ultrasound equipment, we can quickly and accurately diagnose what’s wrong. If we do detect a problem, we are fully equipped to treat your pet with our veterinary services in cardiology, dermatology, ophthalmology, endocrinology, and cancer treatment.
When your pet is in the hands of our surgeons, he or she is in the hands of the very best in Winnipeg. We perform a variety of surgeries, the most common of which is spaying and neutering. Soft tissue surgery, most commonly the removal of masses or lumps, is another surgical service. With our in-house capabilities, we can quickly determine if a mass or lump is cancerous so critical treatment can be started right away. We also perform orthopedic surgery for pets in pain from injury or arthritis
Poor dental care can eventually lead to serious health issues. If after a visual inspection we notice that your pet has bad breath, tarter buildup, or gingivitis, we’ll recommend a dental cleaning which means cleaning the teeth under the gum line. This will be done under anesthesia.
One of owners’ biggest concerns is the use of anesthesia for their pets. We use only the safest anesthesia products available as well as the finest, most modern equipment for monitoring your pet’s vital signs during the entire surgical procedure.
Best Friends Animal Hospital is one of the few to offer laser therapy, a modern, non-invasive therapy to alleviate your pet’s pain. We use the Companion Therapy Laser ® System, an FDA approved, deep-light penetration light that stimulates release of endorphins to promote faster healing.
Our animal hospital also offers many other services including pain management, nutritional counseling, behavioral counseling, free boarding while you shop, and pet memorials.
Whatever your pet’s needs, our Winnipeg veterinarians at Best Friends Animal Hospital are here to serve with our top-rated medical facility and an abundance of care and compassion for each and every animal that comes through our doors.
