Boarding & Grooming

Berkeley Lake Animal Hospital offers both routine boarding and medical boarding services. If your pet needs medical attention or monitoring while you are away from home, we will be happy to provide care for your pet in your absence. For our feline friends, we have a boarding facility which is completely separate from the canine boarding area . The cat condos provide our feline boarders with a special view of the outside world as well as much needed peace and quiet.

Expert grooming for dogs and cats is done in our specially equipped grooming salon by an experienced professional groomer with over fifteen years of grooming experience using the finest equipment, and most importantly, tender, loving care.

Prevention

To keep your pet free from disease, some of which could affect family members, we offer and recommend annual physical examinations, vaccinations, canine and feline heartworm prevention and feline leukemia testing.

In our dedication to the practice of modern medical techniques, we have modeled our vaccination recommendations around current research which will require your pets to have the fewest, yet most-effective, vaccines necessary. Even with modern practices, physical exams are still the best form of disease prevention and detection.

Surgery

Our hospital maintains a surgical facility with state of the art equipment and instrumentation. This enables our staff to provide the best in surgical care. We also offer in-house blood testing to be sure your pet can safely handle anesthesia before we begin the surgery. We use isoflurane anesthesia which is a gas anesthetic used in human hospitals and is considered the safest anesthetic available.

We also utilize Propofol anesthesia, which is an injectable anesthetic and is extremely safe for our site-hound friends as well as our elderly patients in need of a surgical procedure. Your pet is always monitored before, during and after surgery by one of our highly trained veterinary technicians.
