Anesthesia, Diagnostic Imaging, Pharmacy
In addition to our public facing services, our hospital also has several internal services that play a key role in our ability to offer your animal the best care possible. We take a team approach to each case, and while you may never meet the doctors and staff that specialize in the below areas, rest assured that they are experts in their fields, providing exceptional care and support to all of our hospital patients and services.
Our anesthesia team provides services for medical, surgical, diagnostic, emergency, and therapeutic procedures for all animals under our hospital’s care. This includes general anesthesia, sedation, and pain management consultation. We are one of the few hospitals in Georgia with board-certified anesthesiologists and a team of highly trained anesthesia technicians.
General anesthetic techniques include total intravenous protocols, as well as a combination of injectable and inhalant anesthesia. When appropriate, this team can also provide local nerve blocks, epidurals, and continuous intravenous infusions of various analgesic drugs to minimize the discomfort of our patients and improve their overall experience while in the hospital.
Our diagnostic imaging capabilities are currently unmatched by any other specialty hospital in the state of Georgia. This gives us the ability to better pinpoint the source of a problem and then use that information to create a customized treatment plan for each patient. Our diagnostic imaging team supports all of our hospital services and offers:
- 64-Slice CT Scans
- 3T MRI
- Nuclear Scintigraphy
- Radioactive iodine treatment
Our hospital’s pharmacy is staffed by licensed pharmacists and full-time pharmacy technicians (who specialize in veterinary pharmacy). The pharmacy team provides important medications to our hospital’s patients and also plays a critical role in many of the clinical trials that we offer.
