We are a Full Service Hospital Facility Providing the Following Services:
Routine Health Evaluation / Exam
All dogs need a routine health evaluation at least twice per year and cats at least annually. Pets age much faster than humans, on average 7 years per human year, so routine exams are a necessary part of preventive care. If a disease is detected early, it is easier to treat, and more likely to be cured.
All dogs and cats need vaccinations in order to help prepare the body’s immune system to fight disease-causing organisms. Vaccines are very important in managing the health of your dog or cat. If a vaccinated pet is ever exposed to the real disease, his or her immune system will be prepared to recognize and fight it off entirely or significantly reduce the severity of the illness. It is very important to discuss with one of our veterinarians a vaccination protocol that’s right for your pet. Factors that will be considered include age, medical history, environment, travel habits and lifestyle.
We carefully choose what brand and style of vaccines to use based on the safety and effectiveness for your pets. In many cases this means that we use ultra-purified products for dogs to decrease vaccine reactions or non-adjuvanted vaccines for cats to reduce the risk of injection site sarcomas. Please ask one of our team members about the advantages of the vaccines we choose.
A pet is what it eats! Our veterinarians will make scientific recommendations to ensure your pet is getting the most out of his or her diet. We carry Hill’s Science Diet, Hill’s Prescription Diet and Purina pet food. These are exceptional options for your pet and include maintenance, preventative and prescription diets. These manufacturers offer a 100% guarantee on all products.
Our team members highly recommend microchipping all pets. Microchipping is a permanent means of identification and ensures a quick reunion if a pet is lost! Microchipping is affordable and can be done at any time by one of our trained team members.
Having your pet’s blood panel done annually is very important in order to detect diseases in the beginning stages. On a complete blood panel you can verify your pet’s heart, kidneys, liver, blood cells, and much more to ensure they are functioning properly. Normal blood panels give veterinarians a baseline to compare to when your pet is ill. If abnormal results are detected, our veterinarians are more likely to be able to treat the disease or maintain it giving your pet a longer, healthier life.
Another lab test that is super important is a fecal examination. This test requires a small amount of fecal matter and checks for intestinal parasites, giardia and different types of bacteria. Intestinal parasites are zoonotic meaning they can be passed from your pet to you or your family members therefore this test is necessary semi-annually to ensure safety for you and your pet.
Pearland Animal Hospital’s dental services include routine cleanings / polishing, dental extractions, oral surgery, and digital dental radiography (x-rays). Our trained technicians perform routine dental cleanings daily. We also have a wide variety of veterinary approved dental care products for maintenance and preventative care.
Digital Dental Radiography
Full mouth or single tooth x-ray can be performed in order to detect hidden dental structures, malignant or benign masses, bone loss and cavities that are not seen by the human eye. Images are immediately available for a doctor’s evaluation.
Our hospital offers the latest anesthetic protocols, complete blood panels to check vital organs, pain control, constant patient monitoring by a trained technician and state of the art equipment. Our veterinarians perform a variety of orthopedic, soft tissue, and routine elective surgeries.
Pearland Animal Hospital now provides Ultrasound Imaging! We use high frequency waves in order to view your pet’s soft tissues such as muscles and/or organs. The images are captured in real time allowing us to see movement of the body’s internal organs as well as the blood flowing through the vessels for a quick and accurate diagnosis.
Fracture? Arthritis? Ruptured disk? Surgery?
At Pearland Animal Hospital we now offer rehabilitation services through laser therapy, range-of-motion exercises, massage and other equipment and techniques derived from physical therapy in people. Veterinary rehab is a relatively new but a quickly growing field seeing significant benefits to pets receiving treatment.
Physical rehabilitation can be a helpful tool for animals that are recovering from surgery for orthopedic or neurological problems, have incurred injuries to joints or soft tissue, or suffer from chronic pain. Rehab can help pets recover more quickly, increase mobility and flexibility, improve endurance and agility, and reduce the need for pain medication. Before surgery, rehab can help pets lose weight, reduce pain and gain muscle, all of which can eliminate the need for surgery or improve its success. After surgery, weeks of cage rest have been replaced by rehab techniques that begin almost immediately, including cold therapy to reduce inflammation.
Rehab is not only for dogs. Cats can also benefit from rehabilitation after the same kind of procedures and medical conditions. Rehab can also improve activity and weight loss in overweight cats. Although some pets will see a rapid improvement with rehab, sometimes within one or two sessions, the time required to judge the extend of recovery possible will usually range from 2 to 4 months, depending on disease condition and severity. During this time we expect to see steady improvement in use and function of affected areas on your pet.
