WELLNESS CARE FOR YOUR PET COMPANIONS
We believe the best approach to your pet's health care is to stop problems before they start. Proper care of your pet is the easiest and best way to keep him happy and healthy. At Avondale Veterinary Healthcare Complex, we provide a nose to toes exam for all of our pet patients. We recommend a complete physical exam for your pet on a yearly basis. Lots of changes can occur from year to year, especially as your pet gets older. Preventative health care recommendations are made based on examination findings and your pet’s individual needs and situation, which you help us to determine. This may include blood, urine, or fecal tests, vaccinations, dietary or exercise advice, and life-style changes.
ADVANCED VETERINARY MEDICINE
Our Veterinarians are trained in the latest techniques should your pet require a surgical procedure. We offer a full range of soft tissue surgeries which include routine spays and neuters, tumor removal, biopsies, and more advanced procedures such as hip surgery, bone grafts and obstruction removal. We also offer Laser Surgery which can provide your pet with many advantages including less swelling, faster healing, and less pain. At the forefront of technology, we provide physical diagnostic examinations, vaccinations, surgery, including a complete pet pharmacy, and a full range of laboratory services. Our Doctors and veterinary support staff are here to help ensure that your pet enjoys the very best quality of life, and that your pet companions live the longest and healthiest life possible.

PHYSICAL THERAPY & PET REHABILITATION
Avondale’s new land treadmill is part of our total rehabilitation therapy program that also includes our underwater treadmill. Dog treadmills are extremely beneficial in providing pain control, exercises for strengthening and conditioning, weight control, agility training, as well as stamina training for hunting dogs. At the Avondale Rehabilitation and Laser Therapy Center, we are committed to improving the quality of life of our patients by providing canine physical therapy including pain management services in a warm, relaxed atmosphere. Canine rehabilitation is very similar to the physical therapy services that have been offered for years to humans to help prevent additional trauma following an injury, surgery or illness.
VETERINARY STEM CELL THERAPY
We understand and share in your love and compassion for animals and it is our goal to provide our clients and their pets with the highest level of veterinary care. We are dedicated to keeping our patients healthy and feel we have an obligation to care for our patients to the best of our medical knowledge, It will always be our policy to continue searching for new and better ways to improve your pet companion's life.Our veterinarians are excited about the major scientific development in animal stem cell regenerative therapy. This technology uses an adult animal's own stem cells to heal itself! This drug-free treatment has been developed by MediVet-America for dogs and cats suffering from osteoarthritis, hip dysplasia, ligament and cartilage injuries and other degenerative diseases. Stem Cell Regenerative Therapy involves removing a small portion of fat tissue from your pet, separating the stem cells from the fat, processing them and then injecting the cells back into the problem area in order to rebuild your pet’s once healthy joints.
LASER THERAPY FOR ANIMALS
Veterinary Laser Therapy provides a sterile, pain-free, non-invasive, drug-free pain relief treatment for a variety of conditions such as acute injuries, wounds, fractures, neurological conditions, numerous dermatological problems, and pain. Whether your pet is rehabilitating from trauma or injury, healing from wounds, or simply aging, your companion will benefit from this revolutionary new approach to Veterinary medicine. Veterinary Laser Therapy is the only course of treatment that actually stimulates the body to heal from within. Non-thermal photons of light are administered to the body and absorbed by the injured cells. The cells are then stimulated and respond with a higher rate of metabolism. The result is increased circulation from the body, an anti-inflammatory reaction, relief from pain and an acceleration of the healing process.
