Services

We are a general practice that also excels in many of the more common advanced areas of veterinary medicine,

all with the training of specialists.  This includes surgery, ranging from advanced emergency surgery to orthopedic surgery, TPLO’s for example.  This also includes advanced imaging diagnostics, especially ultrasound.  This also includes advanced medical management with internal medicine, chemotherapy and dental surgery.  A general practice that is able to incorporate this level of specialization offers a unique integrated and coordinated approach.

Advanced Pain Management

We are increasingly using “balanced anesthesia”, which incorporates pain management through multiple mechanisms. Multiple drugs at smaller doses are more effective and safer than a single drug at a big dose. Additionally, local anesthesia (local block) can help reduce the amount general anesthesia needed. MPH is now using Nocita, a local anesthetic that can last up to three days!

 

Nocita reduces the need for general anesthesia and post-op pain meds. It’s ideal for many surgery sites, and is even helpful in healing naturally occurring wounds. Risks are minimal, but can include irritation or infection at the surgery site. But Nocita also helps reduce the risk of infection, by eliminating pain that may otherwise cause your pet to lick or traumatize an incision.

 

The charge for Nocita is included with the cost for dental surgery, spay and neuter surgery, and cruciate surgery.
