Medicine is both an art and a science. A good diagnostic workup always starts with a thorough physical exam of your pet, and then because not all diseases can be diagnosed with ears, eyes and fingers; additional tests are often needed. For that reason, we maintain advanced diagnostic equipment at both of our locations.
our veterinarians have advanced skills for treating intestinal diseases, liver problems, and diseases of the pancreas.
a pet’s sick heart at Veremedy will benefit from our in-house capacity to measure blood pressures, take radiographs, and to perform cardiac ultrasound.
when the lungs are not happy, our medical team may take samples from the chest cavity, or use x-ray imaging to see what the problem may be. For example, asthma is a common problem in cats, and we often see respiratory infections, such as pneumonia, in dogs. We stay current on the best ways to treat both of these conditions.
our doctors regularly treat a variety of hormonal problems including diabetes, hyper and hypothyroidism, and Cushing’s disease.
abnormalities with the kidneys and bladder of dogs and cats are encountered regularly in our practice. This is another area where our in-house laboratory, and our in-house ultrasound capabilities provide a great benefit.
- Infectious Disease
our hospital in White River Junction is equipped with an isolation ward complete with separate ventilation, so we can treat infectious diseases such as parvovirus enteritis.
diseases of the brain and spinal cord often require advanced imaging to be diagnosed correctly, which may require referral to a specialist. Some of the more common neurologic problems that the Veremedy vets address are epilepsy and intervertebral disc disease.
Once a diagnosis is made in any of the above disciplines, Veremedy doctors, nurses, and assistants provide critical and intensive care to sick and debilitated patients. Veremedy often provides initial stabilizing care prior to being transferred to a tertiary facility, or receives transfers back from these facilities, to continue daytime care in our hospital. Our medical wards are equipped with:
- Programmable fluid pumps that deliver intravenous fluids and medications.
- Circulating warm water heating pads and hot air blankets to keep critically ill patients warm.
- A complete in-house pharmacy with oral, injectable, and topical medications.
- A dedicated nursing staff trained to monitor sick patients, provide them comfort and help speed their recovery.
