PenBay Veterinary Associates is a fully accredited veterinary hospital offering general medical and surgical services. Our focus is to provide a positive experience for our clients with decreased waiting times, comprehensive pet health care and client education.
Our state-of-the-art surgical suite provides for the performance of a wide variety of procedures including 20-watt laser surgery. During surgery our patients' heart rate, temperature, blood pressure and oxygenation are monitored. Our surgeries are performed on a heated V-top surgery table.
We customize each patients anesthesia protocol to provide an extra margin of safety and effectiveness. Pre-anesthetic blood testing is required for all patients over seven years of age and highly recommended for any patient going under general anesthesia. Using the most modern equipment, our patients vital signs are monitored during all anesthetic procedures. Hydration and blood pressure are maintained with appropriate IV fluid therapy.
Radiology & Ultrasound Services
Our new digital veterinary-specific X-ray equipment provides high quality radiographs to aid in the diagnosis of many disorders. Our digital equipment enables us to have diagnostic films ready for review in seconds! Additionally we have in-house ultrasound equipment that allow us to create images that allow various organs in the body to be examined.
PBVA's in-house diagnostic laboratory allows us to have blood, urine and parasite results in minutes to ensure each animal is treated as soon as possible. Our equipment includes blood chemistry and electrolyte analyzers, and a flow cytometer for blood cell analysis. We can additionally test thyroid hormone and cortisol levels, bile acids, and for pancreatic lipase. PBVA's labratory means the best care for your pet. We also use commercial veterinary laboratories for specialized diagnostics and pathology. Ask about our geriatric pet health screen!
