ULTRASOUND

We commonly use ultrasound, either by itself or in conjunction with x-rays, to help examine your pet’s internal organs. Using high frequency sound waves, internal organ structure is better visualized and helps determine the next steps in therapy. We routinely perform pregnancy ultrasounds, cardiac ultrasounds and find it extremely helpful in diagnosing foreign-body ingestions.

DIGITAL X-RAY

Our hospital is equipped with the latest digital x-ray capabilities. With this cost-effective diagnostic tool we are able to visualize important internal structures quickly. This is one of our most widely used medical tools, alongside our In-House Blood Analyzers.

PAIN MANAGEMENT (OVERVIEW)

Simply put, “Pain hurts,” and we want to minimize it for your pets. To achieve that goal, our staff and equipment are up to date in the latest that Veterinary medicine has to make your pet as comfortable as possible. Dr. Dutton earned a post-doctoral Master of Science degree in Veterinary Pain Management and became certified in Pain Management by the International Veterinary Academy of Pain Management.

Building on that, the rest of the staff receive continual education and experience on ways to best avoid, minimize, and control pain in pets.

We employ a variety of techniques including medications, cold laser, and physical therapy. Each plan is tailored to your pet and their specific needs.

REGENERATIVE MEDICINE

This is an exciting new area for veterinary medicine and includes the use of adult pet stem cells and other tissue derived factors.

Stem Cell Therapy

Cutting edge therapy is now available at the Weare Animal Hospital for dogs with arthritis. Both Dr. Dutton and Dr. Peel are credentialed in Stem Cell Therapy by Vet-Stem. This exciting new therapy uses your own dog’s adult stem cells (derived from their fat) to promote your dog’s own healing processes. Currently it is approved for arthritis and certain autoimmune diseases.

The process consists of obtaining a fat sample from your dog under sterile conditions, having Vet-Stem process the sample to collect the adult stem cells, and then 2 days later after the original fat collection injecting the cells into the traumatized or affected area.

Brief Overview

Vet-Stem Regenerative Cell (VSRC) therapy has demonstrated successful therapeutic outcomes in horses with tendon and ligament injuries, fractures, and joint disease, it is now being used to treat arthritis in dogs. Since 2005, select clinics have treated dogs with arthritis and orthopedic soft tissue injuries.

Current canine orthopedic application: osteoarthritis and orthopedic soft tissue (tendon and ligament injuries).

Platelet Rich Plasma

The process consists of separating out platelets and other healing factors from your pet’s own blood, concentrating them, and then injecting them into the affected joint. Research has shown that many pets benefit although the exact method is still being actively researched.

COLD LASER THERAPY

Cold laser therapy is a noninvasive procedure that uses light to stimulate cell regeneration and increase blood circulation. This stimulation helps to repair tissue faster. We have found cold laser to be as effective as acupuncture in many conditions.

Cold laser therapy treats the surface of the skin, while hot laser treatments affect deeper tissues.

Laser therapy can treat acute and chronic injuries, sprains and strains, arthritis, swelling due to disc problems of the back, and musculoskeletal abnormalities. It also helps to regenerate nerve tissue after surgery.

Orthopedics

Hopkinton Animal Hospital offers  TPLO (Tibial Plateau Leveling Osteotomy) Surgery on dogs who have torn their cranial cruciate ligament, also commonly referred a dog’s torn ACL. Weare Animal Hospital screens for a variety of bone and joint conditions, most commonly hip dysplasia, and performs numerous other orthopedic studies allowing for O.F.A. certification of your dog’s joints.

ORTHOPEDICs

TPLO (Tibial Plateau Leveling Osteotomy) Surgery

TPLO has become one of the most popular orthopedic surgeries performed on dogs who have torn their cranial cruciate ligament, also commonly referred a dog’s torn ACL. TPLO is particularly successful in large breeds and those with advanced joint degeneration. Dr. Dutton, Board certified ABVP Canine and Feline Specialist, performs TPLO surgeries at our Hopkinton office. Click here for more details on TPLO Surgery at Hopkinton Animal Hospital.

Orthopedic Screenings

Dogs genetically are prone to a variety of bone and joint conditions. Hip dysplasia is the most common one encountered. A very sensitive, early test we can perform is PennHip x-rays. Dogs as young as sixteen weeks can be tested for hip dysplasia. If discovered this early, a simple preventive surgery by 20 weeks of age can dramatically reduce hip arthritis in the dog’s later years. In addition to PennHip, we also perform numerous other orthopedic studies allowing for O.F.A. certification of your dog’s joints.

Surgery

VIDEO OTOSCOPE

We employ a variety of endoscopes to better visualize certain organs.

A very common use here at the Weare Animal Hospital is using the video otoscope to determine the extent and cause of chronic ear infections. Seventy-five percent of dogs with a chronic ear infection lasting more than six weeks have a torn ear drum or middle ear infection. By using the video otoscope, we can determine the type of infection and use the same instruments to help heal the middle ear and ear drum.
