Vaccinations are the most important preventive measure you can take for the health of your pet. Health threats vary from state to state and even city to city. Therefore, we tailor an immunization program for your pet based on local conditions.
Vaccinations help protect your pet from a number of potentially serious and even fatal diseases, such as Parvo and Distemper in dogs and Rhinotracheitis and Leukemia in cats. Not only that, vaccinations cost considerably less than the treatments available for the diseases pets are normally vaccinated against. Pima County law requires owners to keep their dogs Rabies vaccine up to date and to license them annually.
Vaccines contain viruses or bacteria that have been modified so that they will not cause disease. When an animal is vaccinated, it stimulates two parts of the animal’s immune system. One is the production of antibodies, the other is the stimulation of cell mediated immunity, which, in combination, mount a response against the bacteria or virus in question. If the dog or cat is later exposed to that disease, the two parts of the immune system will react quickly to destroy the disease-causing agent.
The protection provided by a vaccine gradually declines over time. A healthy pet requires booster vaccines annually to every three years to ensure ongoing immunity from disease.

Early detection is key when it comes to treating your pet, and [HOSPITAL NAME] offers complete in-house diagnostics including cutting-edge equipment and an on-site laboratory. This saves time, money, and most importantly, you don’t have to wait overnight for results—meaning your pet gets a diagnosis and needed treatment sooner.
[HOSPITAL NAME] has the capability to perform various blood screens, pre-anesthetic bloodwork, urinalysis and other types of testing on site instead of sending samples to an outside lab.
Testing provided in the hospital includes:
- Liver enzyme screening
- Pancreatic evaluation
- Renal (Kidney) profiles
- Complete blood counts
- General chemistries
Sometimes diagnosing a health issue means piecing together all the information you have about a pet—their lifestyle, medical history, clinical signs, lab results, imaging and testing—to create a clear picture of the problem.
At Greenway Pet Clinic, we have the experience and state-of-the-art technology to assess your pet’s condition as accurately as possible, and to provide advanced treatment, hospitalization, surgery, and specialist referrals if necessary.
Some of the conditions and diseases treated with internal medicine include:
- thyroid issues
- infectious diseases
- inflammatory bowel disease and other gastrointestinal disorders
- acute or chronic kidney failure
- asthma and respiratory conditions
- pneumonia and bronchitis
Pets can’t tell us specifically how they’re feeling, so having a skilled veterinary internist can mean a more positive outcome for your pet. To schedule an appointment for your pet, call us at 520-749-1736.
At Greenway Pet Clinic we have the capability to run complete in hospital blood work panels including serum chemistries for kidney, liver function, and electrolytes; a comprehensive blood cell analysis; and a complete urinalysis. All these results can be obtained in just a few minutes. Specific tests like thyroid levels (T4) and Fructosamine levels can now also be performed in-house.
We can also test for infectious diseases such as feline leukemia, canine parvovirus, erhlichiosis (tick fever), and heartworm disease.
We tailor the blood panels to suit each animals individual needs and monitoring.
Other in house diagnostics including, but not limited to:
-Fecal Analysis and Urinalysis
-Cytology and Fine Needle Aspiration of skin masses
-Abdominal and Cardiac Ultrasound
We also work with Idexx Laboratory and the University of Arizona Diagnostic Lab who we send blood work and tissue samples to for many lab tests we are unable to perform in our hospital. These include but are not limited to:
-Coccidiomycosis (Valley Fever)
-Thyroid Testing and monitoring
-Phenobarbital /Potassium Bromide Level
-Histopathology (biopsy evaluation)
-Culture and sensitivity (of infected areas)
