Care for Sick and Injured Pets
At Gray-New Gloucester Animal Hospital, we focus on keeping your pet happy and healthy. Unfortunately, some pets occasionally experience illnesses or injuries that require a veterinarian's care and attention.
Gray-New Gloucester Animal Hospital offers high quality diagnostic and medical treatments for sick and injured pets. We provide a safe and comfortable atmosphere to diagnose and treat your pet. A successful recuperation is our goal and our experienced and caring team of veterinarians is supported by our on-site laboratory, ultrasound and x-ray capabilities.
- Hospitalization — We are fully equipped to hospitalize, diagnose and treat ill animals until they are fully recovered. Our in-house equipment allows us to receive critical information about a patient's status in order to institute an appropriate and timely treatment protocol.
- Laboratory — In house laboratory equipment provides us with the ability to process a variety of blood and urine panels to both diagnose and monitor a patient's status. For more complex testing, samples are sent to a top quality outside laboratory and results are generally provided within 24 hours.
- Radiology — We are equipped to process and interpret x-rays at our facility, allowing us to diagnose a variety of ailments and injuries including orthopedic (bones and joints) and soft tissue.
- Ultrasound — We use ultrasound technology to rapidly and effectively diagnose problems in your pet. Ultrasound allows us to visualize the internal architecture of many organs to locate and stage disease processes in a non invasive and non painful way. Once an ultrasound study has been performed in our clinic, we can send the images, if needed, via telemedicine to be further interpreted by a board-certified specialist.
If your pet is experiencing an illness including, but not limited to, vomiting, diarrhea, skin rash, loss of appetite or lower energy level, our team and facility are here to diagnose and treat your pet. We are also equipped to help your pet recover if it has sustained an injury such as a bite wound, lameness or trauma from an accident (including if your pet is hit by a car).
We see emergencies during our normal hospital hours. If your pet has an after-hours emergency or if we determine that your pet requires overnight nursing care or a level of specialty we cannot provide here, we will co-ordinate your pet's referral to the appropriate critical care or specialty hospital.
