Vaccinations

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.

Diagnostics

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.

In-House Laboratory

[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

Internal Medicine

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:

  • diabetes
  • thyroid issues
  • infectious diseases
  • anemia
  • inflammatory bowel disease and other gastrointestinal disorders
  • hepatitis
  • acute or chronic kidney failure
  • asthma and respiratory conditions
  • pneumonia and bronchitis
  • fever

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.

 

In-House Laboratory

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

-Radiographs (X-Ray)

-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)
-Fluid analysis
-Culture and sensitivity (of infected areas)
-Fructosamine Levels

Dear Greenway Pet Clinic Clients:

The global spread of COVID-19 is a concern for everyone. I wanted to let you know that Greenway Pet Clinic has also taken some preventative measures to ensure everyone’s safety, clients and employees alike.

We are continuing to do curbside service only, with the exception of end of life appointments. We appreciate peoples understanding about not entering the clinic. It is for everyone’s safety to keep a distance and not be confined in a small space. We also ask that clients wear masks when interacting with the staff. We wear masks continually inside so we can provide care to your pets and not spread the virus between each other.

I ask that if you are sick, stay home and do not bring your pet in. Please find someone else to bring your pet in if he or she needs to be seen. I want to try to accommodate all our patients but won’t be able to do that if my staff and I get sick.

In addition to daily temperature checks upon starting a shift and wearing a mask, any staff member who starts to feel sick will be sent home and asked to go get tested. If they do have the Coronavirus, they will have to stay home a minimum of ten days or 24 hours past resolution of signs if longer than ten days.

I am not sure when this curbside protocol will end. Unfortunately, this pandemic is far from being under control. I am looking forward to the day when the infection rate is under control and we can again have some sense of normalcy.

Please be safe and take care, Carole Treat DVM
