immediately. With these capabilities
we are able to initiate treatments
quickly and achieve a more positive
outcome. Additionally, the in-house
laboratory allows for rapid response
to emergency cases. Patients can
often get blood work results back
while they wait and medications can
be dispensed at the time of

We have recently acquired a Sound
Technologies DR ex digital
radiography system. This digital
technology provides a sharper and
cleaner image than analog x-ray
machines. Other benefits include:
lower dosage x-rays without
sacrificing picture quality, the
ability to enhance, manipulate, and
share images quickly, electronic
archiving, and the elimination of
chemicals involved in film
processing that are harmful to the
For our Canine guests we have roomy
indoor air conditioned cages, runs,
and double runs which can be shared
by multiple pets at your request,
and large individual outdoor
exercise runs which they play in two
times every day.
Boarding for cats has never been
nicer. The boarding cat condos are
completely isolated from dogs (on
their own floor!). Each cage has a
clear plexiglass back with a perch,
so the cats can look out the
windows. The cages have optional
connecting doorways, so if you
request you can have your cats share
a multi-room set of cages.
An electrocardiograph (EKG or ECG)
is used to record the electrical
activity of the heart over time. It
is a non-invasive tool that can help
detect cardiac problems and is often
used in exams, during and after
surgery, and in the intensive care
Dentistry and Surgery-
All of the Doctors at Mount Airy
Animal Hospital perform dental
procedures regularly. Dental disease
can be a serious problem for many
pets, often associated with mouth
pain, tooth decay, infection, and
bad breath. Even with regular home
dental care, many dogs and cats will
need dental cleanings several times
in their lifetime in order to keep
their teeth healthy.
Our Doctors also perform routine
soft tissue surgeries every week.
Every precaution is taken to assure
that your pet is comfortable during
the procedure. We utilize AAHA
approved anesthetic protocol and the
latest patient monitoring equipment.
Acupuncture is the stimulation of
specific points on the body which
have the ability to alter various
biochemical and physiological
conditions in order to achieve a
healing effect. It is not a
cure-all, but it works well where
indicated and when used alone or in
combination with traditional

modification is an important
application of veterinary
acupuncture, but there are much
wider applications. Examples of

Having your pet microchipped is one
of the best ways to increase your
pet's chances of getting home if he
or she is lost or stolen and winds
up at an animal shelter or
veterinary office. Unlike tags and
collars, which can fall off or be
removed, microchipping is a more
permanent form of identifying your
dog or cat.
A study by researchers at Ohio State
looking at data from 53 shelters in
23 states found, the return-to-owner
rate for cats was 20 times higher
and two-and-a-half times higher for
dogs for microchipped pets compared
to rates of return for all stray
cats and dogs that had entered the
shelters. When a pet had a
microchip, owners were located
almost three-quarters of the time.
When owners couldn't be found, it
was usually because the pet's
information hadn't been updated
within the chip registry.
