Services Our Alexandria Veterinarians Offer at
Fort Hunt Animal Hospital
Here at Fort Hunt Animal Hospital, our Alexandria veterinarians offer an array of valuable services for pets. We understand that taking care of your pets is a priority for you, so we are pleased to bring your animal the very best care in the community with the following services.
Preventative Care for Animals
The first step to animal wellness is preventative care, which begins with routine comprehensive examinations. These exams allow our veterinarians in Alexandria to fully assess the health of your pets and make recommendations for improvements if necessary, such as food changes and parasite prevention. These exams are also excellent times to have pet microchipping and routine vaccinations and booster shots.
Our in-house laboratory features state-of-the-art equipment and tools that provide fast, accurate diagnostics for animals. Blood tests are the core of most assessments, as they can reveal a number of ailments not physically visible, such as cancer, dehydration, or bacterial/viral illnesses. We have digital x-ray services in our radiology department, along with EKG and ultrasound capabilities.
General Pet Dentistry Services
Pets require annual cleanings just like humans in order to keep their teeth and gums healthy. Without cleanings, pets can develop dental diseases like gingivitis, bleeding gums, gum infections, tooth decay, and cavities. Our pet dentists can treat abscessed teeth, broken teeth, oral tumors, and oral diseases.
Routine and Advanced Surgical Procedures
Our veterinarians in Alexandria are skilled at routine and advanced surgery for animals. Our most common routine surgeries are spaying and neutering to prevent unwanted pregnancies. We also remove tumors and abscesses, alleviate eyelid problems, and repair fractures and broken bones. Our team is also prepared to help with more complex surgeries, such as a turned stomach and orthopedic procedures. Many of these are performed via surgical laser, and we offer ultrasound and laser therapy to promote faster healing after surgery.
Boarding and Grooming
We are pleased to offer complete bathing and grooming services for cats and dogs, along with boarding services. Our comfortable kennels and boarding area is spacious, clean, and staffed at all times with experienced vets and technicians.
