We offer a variety of excellent veterinary services at Glastonbury Veterinary Hospital. If you have questions, please contact us and we’ll be happy to help.
At Glastonbury Veterinary Hospital, we provide pet grooming services. Our groomers offer bathing, comb-outs, and lion cuts for cats, which can be performed under anesthesia if the cat is especially nervous or stressed. (Pre-anesthetic blood work is recommended, just as in a surgical situation.) We can also provide medicated bathes to dogs and cats, as well as ear cleaning, nail clipping, and anal gland expression, as needed.
As pet owners ourselves, we understand that our pets occasionally exhibit unwanted behaviors, whether because they are young and untrained or because there has been a change in their life that has upset them. Some pets misbehave when a new pet or child is brought into the home, after a move, or as a result of a developing health condition. When you bring your misbehaving pet to us for advice, we will always run a diagnostic test first, checking for any potential health problems that may be underlying this change in behavior. Once that is ruled out, we can offer a number of behavioral modification tips, including recommendations for training classes. There is no reason to suffer with a misbehaving pet. We can offer help today!
Cancer Treatment & Chemotherapy
When your pet is diagnosed with cancer, that is an extremely scary time for the family, and our team understands your fears. Dr. Sprague provides treatments and chemotherapy to cancer patients on an individual basis, depending on their needs and type of cancer. Some of the cancer treatments we provide include surgical removal and pain management treatments for patients undergoing chemotherapy. We can refer to local specialists for radiation treatment, if recommended for your pet. If your pet has cancer, we are here for you at Glastonbury Veterinary Hospital. Please schedule a visit with us today to discuss your options.
Dental care is one of the most important aspects of your pet’s physical health care. At Glastonbury Veterinary Hospital, we provide complete dental care services, including oral inspections, anesthetized ultrasonic cleanings, digital dental x-rays, and more. We also recommend at-home dental maintenance in between professional cleanings and checks.
For your convenience, we have a fully-stocked, competitively priced in-house pharmacy. This enables you to pick up your pet’s medication at the time it is prescribed, wasting no time in beginning treatment.
Saying goodbye to your best friend is a painful and difficult experience, but the team at Glastonbury Veterinary Hospital is here for you. We are committed to providing a lifetime of care for our patients and clients. Please let us know if you have concerns and questions about your pet in their golden years. Our team is here for you.
We understand that sometimes it is impossible to bring your pet to our hospital. For this reason, we offer a house-call service on a pre-scheduled basis for local clients. Please ask us if you are interested in scheduling a pet house call. We’ll be happy to discuss the particulars with you!
Immunization and Wellness
Wellness care is very important for pets in all life stages. We provide specialized wellness care and vaccinations based on each of our patients’ lifestyles and age groups. Puppies and kittens require more vaccinations than older pets, because they need to receive a foundation of protection. For senior pets, we often recommend annual blood work to help identify potential health problems before they develop. For your pet’s protection, we also recommend preventative care including heartworm prevention and flea and tick prevention.
At Glastonbury Veterinary Hospital, we provide a full range of veterinary internal medicine, including cardiology, ophalmology, neurology, dermatology, gastroenterology, orthopedic surgery, oncology, endocrinology, and more.
Laser therapy is an advanced pain management option that we are proud to offer at Glastonbury Veterinary Hospital. Laser therapy uses concentrated light to stimulate healing cells in the body. We utilize the excellent Companion Therapy Laser to provide a non-invasive alternative to healing and pain control. We invite you to visit the Companion Therapy Laser website to learn more about this excellent veterinary tool. If you believe that your pet could benefit from this therapy, please contact us today and we’ll be happy to offer our recommendation.
We recommend microchipping for all pets as it is the most effective means of identification. When your pet is separated from you, their microchip will contain information linking them to you. We use the HomeAgain microchip and register the chip for you, but please be sure to update your information if you move or change your phone number.
We provide nutritional counseling in the event that your pet has specific dietary needs. We can provide options for pet with weight management concerns, as well as for pets with specific health conditions, such as allergies, oral health, and more. We carry a variety of diets from Hill’s Healthy Advantage, Royal Canin, and Purina.
It is our desire that pets should not be required to feel pain as a result of a health condition. Some pets may experience pain after they have undergone surgery, or due to old-age related conditions such as arthritis. If you notice your pet moving slower than usual, having trouble doing usual activities like lying down or climbing stairs, or vocalizing more than usual, they may be in pain. We encourage you to schedule a physical exam with our veterinarians so we can evaluate their level of pain and recommend a pain management option that best suits their needs.
We utilize digital radiology at Glastonbury Veterinary Hospital, enabling us to take accurate and efficient internal images of your pet. Using digital radiology also enables us to provide digital copies for specialist when we need a second opinion.
There may be times where your pet needs more specialized attention, advanced surgery, or radiation treatment. We work closely with area specialists who can provide this care, and we work to make this transition as seamless as possible. We always act as your pet’s primary veterinarian, ensuring that we are involved in their referred treatment and informed of all of their needs.
We provide extensive surgical services at our hospital, including standard surgeries like spay and neuter, as well as more advanced procedures such as growth or foreign body removals and orthopedic surgeries. For more information about your pet’s surgery, please download our What You Need to Know PDF.
We provide ultrasound services right in our hospital. Our very own Dr. Sprague is trained to perform ultrasound imaging. We use this non-invasive imaging technique to examine internal organs, especially the heart and abdomen, and to check for pregnancies.
