We're pleased to offer the following services at Wantage Veterinary Hospital:
Preventative Care/Sick Visits
Our appointment book is computerized, which allows us to efficiently make appointments for you and your pet. Our receptionists and team will attempt to accommodate all requests to the best of our ability for all preventive care and sick visits. Emergencies are accepted anytime our hospital is open. If you feel you have an emergency with your pet, please call us or come in immediately. If possible, it is best to call before coming in so that a staff member can advise you on your particular emergency. We see cats, dogs, chickens, ducks, rabbits, and small pet mammals.
Our well equipped team is capable of handling emergency visits during regular business hours. Please call (973) 875-7297 so that our staff can provide ample instructions.
Our doctor performs multiple surgeries with the assistance of trained technicians. We closely monitor all patients while under anesthesia with our state of the art monitors. Parameters that are measured include EKG, blood pressure, heart rate, respiratory rate, and percent oxygenation. Orthopedic procedures are done by a board certified surgeon that operates at our facility as the need arises.
We offer a full in house laboratory where we can run blood chemistries, complete blood counts, urine screening, tests for infectious diseases, cytology, and parasitic screens. We also use an outside laboratory for special chemistries and biopsies.
We have a dental scaler, high speed drill, and professional polishing equipment to treat pets with tartar build up and dental disease. Our pet dentals include cleaning, polishing, a fluoride treatment and full mouth dental x-rays. Dental cleanings are done under anesthesia with all the precautions and monitors used for any other surgery.
Store and Pharmacy
Our pharmacy includes hundreds of drugs that are prescribed to our patients when they are ill. The convenience of having everything in one location is appreciated by our clients when their pets are sick. We also carry flea, tick and heartworm preventative. We offer a wide variety of foods for the treatment of problems such as kidney, intestinal, and dental disease.
Digital Radiology & Ultrasounds
We have a digital radiograph machine with which we can obtain instant x-rays that appear on the computer screen. The exam rooms are equipped with computers where the doctor can show the images to the pet owner. The system works much like a digital camera because there is no film to develop and the images are stored in the computer.
