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:

Anesthesia & Surgery

Several of our staff doctors perform surgeries ranging from routine to very complicated.  Dr. Chris Glawe, Dr. Jennifer Fick, and Dr. Jeremiah Moorer perform the orthopedic surgeries and more complicated soft tissue surgeries.  Dr. Melani Poundstone, Dr. Melissa Etheridge, Dr. Karalyn Buttrill, Dr. Rakafet Orobona, Dr. Leslie Longo, and Dr. Sylvia Berns perform laparoscopic and soft tissue surgeries.

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.


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

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.


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.

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.

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.
