Routine and Urgent Care

Creature Comforts Veterinary Hospital has extended office hours to accommodate the emergency needs of our patients. Our hospital hours are 8:00am-8:00pm, seven days a week, enabling us to provide both routine and urgent care without charging emergency fees.

Comprehensive Puppy and Kitten Care

After a full physical exam and review of any previous medical history, our veterinarians will discuss continued medical care with you. We will offer pet-care advice while answering any questions you may have regarding your new four-legged family member.

Intestinal Parasite and Heartworm Testing, Treatment, and Preventatives

At Creature Comforts Veterinary Hospital, we utilize an in-house laboratory to provide immediate parasite testing results, and an in-house pharmacy to supply all treatment and preventatives. We recommend and stock a number of oral monthly preventatives that work against both heartworm and various intestinal infestations. For your convenience, we also offer an injectable parasiticide for dogs. This prevents heartworm disease continuously for six months and treats common hookworm infestations.

Diagnosing and Treating Many Medical Conditions

Creature Comforts Veterinary Hospital is prepared to treat your pet if they don’t feel well or if they have incurred an injury. As a full-service urgent care hospital, we are available seven days a week to examine, perform diagnostics, and provide treatment and/or hospitalization for your pet. Remember that the quicker we examine your pet when they begin to show signs of illness, the faster we can provide treatment that will make them feel better.

Symptoms You Should Not Ignore

Please seek treatment immediately if your pet is exhibiting the following symptoms:

  • Vomiting and/or diarrhea
  • Limping or favoring a paw
  • Bleeding
  • Coughing or sneezing
  • Swollen eyes
  • Cuts and wounds
  • Difficulty urinating or defecating

No one knows your pet the way you do. If you sense a problem or a concern, please bring it to our attention immediately.

Microchipping

Microchipping is one of the most efficient means of pet identification. Implanting the microchip does not hurt your pet and surgery is not required. A simple injection is used to place the microchip.

Humane Euthanasia and Cremation Services

End of life decisions are always difficult to make. The team at Creature Comforts Veterinary Hospital is readily available to help you through this time. It is our goal to provide our clients with as much information as possible, helping you to make the best decision for your pet at the right time.

We offer cremation services through LovingRest Pet Cemetery. LovingRest provides quick and efficient pick up and return services. If you are interested in burial services, we will put you in touch with the staff at LovingRest Pet Cemetery to make those arrangements.

Surgical

Creature Comforts Veterinary Hospital offers a variety of surgical procedures for pets. Please scroll below to learn more about the surgeries we provide.

Canine and Feline Spay and Neuter

Our patients undergo general anesthesia for spay and neuter procedures. Although recovery is quick for these routine procedures, pets should rest for approximately 5-7 days post-op. Males may not require as much time to recuperate. It is very important that your pet does not lick or chew the incision site so our team may send home an e-collar for your pet. Sutures are placed under the skin and do not need to be removed. We do recommend a courtesy post-operative checkup approximately 10-14 days after surgery.

Feline Declaw

General anesthesia is used during feline declaw procedures. Declawing requires the removal of the first joint on each toe. Since the paws need to be wrapped after surgery, our patients are hospitalized overnight. Recovery in kittens and young cats is generally very rapid, but it can be painful so we prescribe oral pain medications for the first few days. We also send home a replacement litter for the litter box to be used during the healing process. There are no sutures to be removed however we recommend a courtesy post-operative checkup approximately 10 days following surgery.

We also provide Abdominal Surgeries and various Soft-Tissue Surgeries

Surgical Monitoring

Patients undergoing a surgical procedures are monitored closely by one of our trained veterinary technicians. Our surgical monitoring includes:

  • EKG
  • Blood oxygen levels
  • Exhaled carbon dioxide levels
  • Digital blood pressure
  • Heart and respiratory rate and rhythm

Oral Health Assessment and Treatment (Dentistry)

Dental Prophylaxis and Advanced Procedures

Since our pets cannot sit and hold their mouth open for us, the procedure requires general anesthesia. While under anesthesia, we will perform the following procedures:

  • Complete oral health exam
  • Dental radiographs to further evaluate the teeth and supporting structures
  • Cleaning of the teeth

Diagnostics

Full Laboratory to Test Blood, Urine, and Feces

Modern X-Ray Equipment and Digital Radiograph Processing

We can email radiographs to referring specialists and radiologists for consultation when needed.

Digital Eye Pressure Testing

We perform these tests for glaucoma and uveitis.

Ultrasound Imaging

An ultrasound is a safe, non-invasive technique that we use to better diagnose medical conditions or obtain samples that may aid in diagnosis. While this procedure does not require sedation, mild sedation may be necessary when a pet is unwilling to lie quietly for a scan. Preparation for an ultrasound may have other requirements, depending on your pet’s needs. We will inform you of these at the time of your procedure.

Hospitalization

We know there are times when pets are just too sick to stay at home. Creature Comforts Veterinary Hospital provides full-service daytime and overnight hospitalization for pets who need a little extra care.

Hospitalization services include:

  • IV Fluid therapy
  • Patient monitoring
  • Stomach-tube feedings
  • Seizure watch
  • Blood glucose curve

Nutritional Counseling

What we feed our pets can have a huge impact on their health and lifespan. We stock a variety of prescription diets at our hospital, and if you need a specific diet, please contact us to check whether it’s in stock. We carry some varieties of the following brands:

  • iVet
  • Hills
  • Iams
  • Royal Canin
  • Purina

Behavioral Counseling

If your pet is misbehaving or acting inappropriately, it's always best to rule out any possible medical condition first. Once a clean bill of health has been established, our canine behavioral counselor is always available to help correct the areas of concern.
