Our services include the following:
Wellness Exams: Our physical exams include all of the routine vitals, while also thoroughly examining your pet to identify any potential concerns and discuss treatment options or just how to make this upcoming year a healthy one for your pets. We discuss an individualized vaccine protocol for your pets lifestyle, discuss preventatives for flea/tick and heartworm disease, and counsel for any dietary or behavioral issues. This exam we look forward to each year because it gives us a chance to educate you all while we relax and learn from you as well.
Senior Health Care Exams: Similar to our wellness exams a senior exam it to prepare for a healthy time in the near future. As pets get older, we recommend that exams and routine diagnostics like blood work be performed more frequently as things change a lot quicker in an older pet. Just like people, as pets grow older, many diseases begin to progress and become much more difficult to manage. Here at Triadelphia Veterinary clinic, our doctors are dedicated to help your pet live as long as possible, while making the stages of growing older more manageable to care for.
Pocket Pets and Exotics: We believe that ALL pets deserve special care. Their behavior, diet, and preventative medicine differ greatly from the typical dog and cat of the household. Here at Triadelphia Veterinary Clinic, we have knowledgeable staff for rabbit, rodent, and ferret medicine.
- Rabbit husbandry and surgery are areas of expertise for Dr. Dina Jones, as she raised rabbits for almost 20 years before attending vet school. Since becoming a veterinarian, Dr. Jones has performed numerous spays, neuters and abdominal surgeries on these "furry friends".
- Few people realize that rabbits and guinea pigs have molar (or cheek) teeth, as well as those uniquely prominent incisors. Such teeth are commonly problematic and we are equipped to examine, trim and file teeth safely.
- Ferrets need vaccines, yet is common for them to have vaccination reactions. We carry and administer appropriate ferret vaccines to reduce the risk to your pet. Unfortunately, ferrets are also prone to various types of cancer; we can help determine treatment protocols that can be supportive in maintaining the quality of life for your beloved pet.
- As for the avian and reptile species, Dr. Jones has worked with a Board Certified Avian Veterinarian and has gained limited experience with both the feathered and scaled creatures. Appointments to see these animals may be taken on a case by case basis. As with all of our patients, if certain conditions exist where a more specialized veterinarian is needed, referrals can be made promptly and easily.
**We are not an exotic pet clinic- we are unable to do in depth hospitalizations or diagnostics and do have limitations to what exotic pets Dr. Jones can see.**
Non-Wellness Exams: Just like all other exams, we thoroughly examine your pet to identify any and all issues, while also communicating with you about your concerns. Non-wellness exams could be a wide range from diarrhea and vomiting to limping or just not acting right. We are here at Triadelphia Veterinary Clinic to ensure that your pet is diagnosed and treated quickly.
Diagnostics: During any appointment, it may be suggested that your pet needs blood work, urinalysis, x-rays, or an ultrasound. These test help our doctors to establish a baseline for your pet's vital organs and help to diagnose any issues that may be occurring. We have some of the best in-house lab and radiograph equipment that help us to get you answers quickly and efficiently.
Oral Health Care: About 80% or more of the worlds dog and cat population suffer from periodontal disease. This does more than just causing bad breath as the bacteria can cause inflammation of the gums (gingivitis), loose or abscessed teeth, and chronic pain and infections. With the chronic infections that can start in the mouth, they can also spread to the heart, lungs, liver, and many other organs which just creates further damage. We are here to evaluate your pets teeth at every visit and recommend ways we can better their oral health!
Surgery; including Laser Surgery: We preform many surgeries here at Triadelphia Veterinary Clinic. We often choose to go with the clear advantages of laser technology and perform many surgeries this way. With laser technology we are able to reduce blood loss, less pain, less swelling, and shorter recovery time for patients. For all procedures, we require a pre-operative exam and blood work, as well as patients be up-to-date on vaccines. All of those things help but to ensure your pet is healthy and will thrive while under anesthesia. We place an intravenous catheter and support each patient with IV fluids during all procedures.
Prior to being anesthetized, all patients receive a sedative to help calm them, reduce the need for higher volumes of anesthetics, smooth the recovery phase, and ease any post-operative pain. Throughout the procedure, a registered veterinary technician (RVT) is monitoring the patient's anesthetic level, body temperature, heart rate, respiratory rate, and oxygen levels. During the recovery and post-operative stage, pain management is our primary concern. At discharge, a detailed instruction sheet is reviewed, necessary medications are dispensed, and questions are answered. We will call to check in on surgery patients once they go home as well!
Pain Management: Whether it be surgery, degenerative joint disease, or osteoarthritis Triadelphia Veterinary Clinic is dedicated to keeping your pets comfortable. Please talk to us if your pet is reluctant to jump or climb steps, is slow to rise after sleeping, if play has changed, or any other reason you may even possibly think your pet may be suffering from pain. We are happy to speak with you and make a customized plan for your pets pain management!
Emergency, Urgent, or Critical Care: While we are not an emergency hospital, we will always try our best to accommodate our patients who feel they need to be seen. We handle these cases very seriously. Upon arrival to our hospital with an emergency, urgent, or critical care case; we will have a registered veterinary technician come and triage your pet. If the pet is stable, we will have you wait until our first veterinarian is available. If the pet is unstable, we will pull a veterinarian out to assess the situation and tend to it immediately. Please do understand that since we are not an emergency center, we are staffed for our scheduled appointments; any and all patients that come in without an appointment are subject to wait or referral to an emergency hospital for more prompt care.
Referrals: While we can diagnose and treat a large majority of health problems, some conditions can be better treated when we seek specialist opinions. We as your general veterinarian will always stay in close contact with any specialist veterinarian about your pets case and help in whatever way we can.
Euthanasia: Although no pet owner or veterinary field worker likes to think about it, there will always be a time we have to say "Goodbye" to our beloved friends. We are here to help you through and help your pet pass peacefully. During this highly emotional time of families making decisions and seeing them through, all of us here at Triadelphia Veterinary Clinic are here to comfort you, counsel you on when is the "right time", and make the experience as peaceful as we possibly can. We have a special room in our hospital where an owner can sit on a couch or on a fluffy bed on our floor with their pet privately to say goodbye and spend time with them through the whole process if they wish.
