Regular professional cleaning is important to maintain your pet's teeth. In the Florence clinic we use modern and safe ultrasound to clean each tooth thoroughly - above and below the gum line and digital radiographs to determine the health of your pet's teeth. Dental technicians polish the teeth to create a smooth tooth surface more resistant to plaque buildup.
Saying goodbye to a long-time friend is painful. We work with clients to ensure their pet's comfort and dignity. We work with a local mortuary to provide readily available cremation services. Home euthanasia services area available on a case-by-case basis. Our hope is to help make this difficult time easier on your family and your pet.
Microchips have helped reunite thousands of pets with their families. In the Florence clinic we offer the most widely used ISO microchip products to increase the chances of a safe recovery. We take care of all of the details for you!
Some pets require special food, and all pets benefit from a balanced diet. Our health care team is available to help you choose the right diet for your pet to keep him or her happy, healthy and active.
Veterinary patients feel pain and discomfort under the same circumstances as people do. We know that recognizing and alleviating pain in animals is the essence of good patient care. Chronic Pain Management is closely monitored with scheduled labwork to ensure the safest, most effective procedures are used for your pet.
Radiology or Xrays help our veterinarians evaluate muscular-skeletal, cardiovascular (cardiopulmonary), gastrointestinal, reproductive and urinary systems. High quality digital radiographs help our veterinarians provide the best care for your pet.
Osburn Veterinary Clinic offers ultrasound services, including ultrasonography of the abdomen and limited cardiac screenings. Some diagnoses of certain dog and cat health conditions need the use of a veterinary ultrasound machine, as it allows visualization of organs in three dimensions. Veterinary ultrasound is a painless, non-invasive and safe tool allowing visualization of tissues not otherwise possible. It produces an image through high frequency sound waves aimed at a certain area of the body. As the sound waves travel into the body they return images of the internal organs. Since ultrasounds return results in real time, the veterinarian can see how the organs are moving and how blood is flowing through the dog or cat at the time of the procedure.
An abdominal ultrasound would include visualization of your dog or cat’s liver, spleen, kidney, bladder, pancreas, intestines, stomach, lymph nodes and reproductive organs (pregnancy check).
Laser therapy uses beams of light to stimulate a healing response in cells which leads to reduced pain, reduced inflammation and increased healing. It is non invasive and most treatments only take a few minutes. Animals tolerate it well as they generally feel a gentle, soothing warmth. Our staff is fully trained in the proper use of therapy laser.
We offer the most advanced surgical techniques and technology. All patients are carefully screened for safety, and anesthetics are specifically tailored to your pet. Surgical services and facilities include: fully trained veterinary and surgical staff, to ensure the safest, most efficient, state-of-the-art procedures for your pet; heated surgery tables for greater comfort; advanced sterilization techniques; ECG and oxygen saturation monitors; intensive after surgery care and full blood testing.
