OUR SERVICES

medical

Our goal is to treat our patients with compassion using many of the latest advancements veterinary medicine has to offer. We utilize the most up-to-date research and technology to provide you and your pet with care you want, and your pet deserve. Providing comprehensive care means that we collaborate with other practitioners, specialists and research scientists to continue to improve our capabilities and enhance the relationship between you and your canines. The list below is just a sample of what we can provide:

Pharmacy

We maintain an extensive inventory of pharmaceuticals, heartworm preventatives and nutraceuticals to meet the needs of your dog. We work closely with our local compounding pharmacies (i.e. Roadrunner Pharmacy, Diamondback Drugs and Avella) to provide novel pharmaceutical formulations which make administering medications easier.

wellness programs

Senior dogs, obese dogs and young healthy adults have different medical needs. We tailor our wellness programs to the needs of the individual. Preventative care, dietary counseling, and behavioral counseling are an integral part of designing a wellness program that improves your canine's quality of life.

surgical

At Desert View Animal Hospital, we provide surgical services to treat the young and old alike. We regularly perform basic soft tissue surgeries like spays and neuters, along with far more complicated procedures. Our doctors are well-trained to provide exceptional care to patients with cancer, gastrointestinal foreign bodies, lower urinary tract disorders, knee injuries (e.g. ACL tears), just to name a few!
 
We make every effort to insure the safety of your dog during any anesthetic procedures using state-of-the-art monitoring equipment, pre-surgical blood work and dedicated anesthesia technicians to monitor your dog during and after the procedure. All our anesthetic agents and protocols are designed to provide the shortest duration of anesthesia and a safe, smooth recovery.
 
For patients that require highly specialized care and/or advanced diagnostic procedures intra-operatively, we work with the top surgeons in the Phoenix metro area at VETMED consultants and Arizona Veterinary Specialists.

dentistry

Unless regular home care and veterinary dental care is provided, you could be neglecting an important part of your dog's overall health. In most cases, owners are unaware that their dog has dental problems.  Desert View Animal Hospital offers a full range of veterinary dental services for dogs including consultations, dental radiographs, cleaning, etc. 

Periodontal Disease/Signs & Symptoms

Periodontal disease is the most common clinical condition affecting our canine patients, and is entirely preventable. Find out what the disease is and how it affects your dog(s).

Dental Cleanings & What They Entail

Dental cleanings are important parts of maintaining your dog's health. Every professional dental cleaning starts with a review of the patient's general health and any previous dental history.

Common Dog Dental Problems

Dogs frequently fracture their teeth. All fractured teeth need to be assessed with dental radiographs to help determine if they are a problem for your dog.

At-Home Care

Home care can make a vast difference in your pet's overall health and comfort with the added benefit of preventing or prolonging a future dental procedure.

pain management

Desert View Animal Hospital declares pain as "an unpleasant sensory and emotional experience associated with actual or potential tissue damage." Pain is subjective and can be difficult to measure. It's important to be aware of subtle behavioral changes, as they may be the only way your pet can communicate a need for pain management assistance.

How Do I Tell If My Dog Is In Pain?

It is common to see a dog happily wagging its tail even though they are walking with a limp on a fractured limb.

Treatment Options

The treatment plan will likely include one or more of the modalities list on our treatment page.

At-Home Care

There are a few simple and inexpensive ways to make our homes more comfortable and easier for our pets to navigate.

Pain and Behavior

Any time a pet's behavior changes it can signal something is wrong. If you notice any of these behaviors, tell your veterinarian.
