Our experienced veterinary team is there when you need help the most. Rogue Valley Veterinary Hospital offers whole patient management care for critically ill pets. Patients requiring hospitalized intensive care receive diligent monitoring, nursing care, fluid therapy, rapid in-house diagnostics and radiology. Our staff is highly trained to provide the best and appropriate pain management to meet your pet’s special needs. We offer surgical intervention as needed, complete post-surgical care, and any needed physical therapy or conditioning. Our ICU environment allows your family pet to recover in quiet surroundings under the watchful eye of our compassionate veterinarians and licensed technicians.
If your pet needs medical assistance, you can feel confident turning to us. Our knowledgeable staff and modern facilities are equipped to handle a wide variety of medical conditions, including most emergencies. Because we can perform many diagnostic procedures in-house, we can often give you immediate answers and start treating your pet faster. In some cases, your pet may require hospitalization and further diagnostic tests. Please take a look at the more detailed descriptions of medical services we offer, or call us to discuss your pet’s needs.
At RVVH we offer a full array of in-house diagnostics. We can provide rapid in-house testing for FeLV/FIV testing for cats, and heartworm testing for dogs, fluid and skin cytology, fecal analysis for intestinal parasites, glucose curves for monitoring diabetic patients, urinalysis, and bloodwork including automated complete blood counts, electrolyte levels, and serum chemistry profiles. Catalyst and Lasercyte blood analyzers allow us to obtain results in under 15 minutes.
We use several outside labs for more in-depth testing such as hormone levels, drug therapy monitoring, microbial cultures and antibiotic sensitivity, and histopathology of tissue biopsies.
Our hospital offers both abdominal and thoracic ultrasound services. Ultrasound is an imaging tool that involves bouncing sound waves off of internal organs in order to form a picture of the organs. Often ultrasound will be recommended in cases where the area of concern is the structure or function of the organ, rather than the size. These cases may include echocardiogram of the heart (to evaluate valve function), or evaluating the liver or spleen for infiltrative disease. Ultrasound may also be used in obtaining samples of structures within the body (such as urine from the bladder). In some cases, radiographs (X-Rays) may be performed first, and then ultrasound may be recommended as a method to further investigate any abnormalities. Performing an ultrasound is not painful for a patient, but some pets may require sedation to help them relax so that better quality images can be obtained. If you hane any questions about ultrasound procedures, please do not hesitate to ask!
