Routine & Preventive Care

Regular screening can allow us to find diseases before symptoms are obvious. If we find a disease early, we have better success in treating the disease or may be able to slow the time until symptoms do show. Lab tests, x-rays, and ultrasound screenings can help detect potential problem areas such as:

Digital X-Ray

Hampden Family Pet Hospital uses digital x-ray (including dental x-ray) because it is more efficient than traditional x-rays, minimizes anesthesia, and provides for enhancement of images.

Ultrasound

We have a complete radiology unit and employ a Board Certified Radiologist to view films and perform diagnostic ultrasound when needed for your pet.

Anesthesia & Surgery

Several of our staff doctors perform surgeries from routine to very complicated.  Dr. Chris Glawe and Dr. Randy Willer perform the orthopedic surgeries and more complicated soft tissue surgeries.  Dr. Melani Poundstone, and Dr. Melissa Etheridge perform laparoscopic and soft tissue surgeries.

In House Diagnostic Laboratory

We have a complete on-site lab facility which includes complete blood counts, chemistry profiles, electrolytes, urinalysis, fecal exams, and other tests for accurate and quick results.

CO2 Laser Surgery

Our CO2 surgical laser system uses controlled pulses of light to precisely destroy, cut, or remove target tissue by vaporizing tissue.

Spaying and Neutering

We use the same state of the art monitoring and anesthesia as we do for other major surgeries to ensure optimum safety. We perform laparoscopic spay procedures.

Acupuncture

Acupuncture has been proven to increase endorphins (the body’s natural analgesia and pain relievers), boost the immune system, increase blood circulation to the areas needed, relieve muscle spasms, and stimulate nerves.

Dentistry

Find out what is involved in a teeth cleaning, better practices for teeth care, and other dental information.

Oncology

The diagnosis of cancer in a companion animal can be devastating.  Few words evoke such depth and variety of emotion as the word cancer.  Fortunately, there are currently many options for treatment of the various forms of malignancies found in dogs and cats

Dermatology

Rocky Mountain Veterinary Dermatology is the compassionate, affordable, expert choice for your pet’s allergy, skin or ear problem.

Cardiology

Occasionally, dogs and cats experience heart and lung related symptoms that require an expert familiar with these conditions.

Class IV Laser Therapy

Class IV Laser therapy uses electromagnetic energy to direct an intense beam of laser light into tissues to reduce pain, decrease inflammation, and accelerate healing time.

Overnight Nursing Care

We employ a certified veterinary technician to care for sick, injured, and post-operative patients twenty-four hours a day Monday-Friday.

Urgent Care

Hampden Family Pet Hospital is open until 8pm on weekday nights for walk-in emergencies.  Although we see emergencies throughout the day, we recognize that many critical situations occur with pets after regular business hours.
