Medical and Theraputic Services:

We cover all areas of internal medicine including endocrinology (e.g. diabetes and related diseases), gastrointestinal disease, cardiology, renal and hepatic disease, infectious diseases and other serious conditions.
Since no animal should have to live with pain, we offer multimodal (medications, therapeutic laser treatment, specialized diets, etc.) pain therapy and arthritis care in order to flexibly meet the unique needs of each pet.
For pets suffering from allergies and other dermatological conditions of the skin, ear, hair and nails, we can test, diagnose and provide effective treatments to aid your pets back to health.
An FDA-cleared medical treatment that uses low-level, deep penetrating cold light to stimulate the natural healing capabilities of the body’s cells, thus decreasing inflammation, increasing joint mobility and relieving pain. Laser therapy can be used in conjunction with or as an alternative to pharmaceuticals and produces immediate results without any dangerous side effects.
Whether your concerns are housebreaking a new puppy or kitten, inappropriate urination or defecation, aggression, separation anxiety, inappropriate chewing and barking, introduction of new pets or household pets that are in conflict with one another, we will identify the cause and recommend all appropriate treatments.
FMA carries an extensive line of diets including Science Diet, Hills Prescription, Purina and Royal Canin. Our staff will help you make the most informed choice in the food you feed your pet including proper serving size and other feeding strategies to maintain optimal body weight and nutritional health. If your pet requires a diet we do not carry, we can easily order it for you.
In order to ensure our clients have convenient and timely access to medications for their pets, FMA maintains a comprehensive pharmacy within our practice.
We maintain close relationships with area specialists in order to provide greater treatment options for advanced or complicated cases. We will receive test results, diagnoses and recommendations from the specialist in order to ensure continuity of care.

Diagnostic Services:

Radiographs (X-rays) are utilized for diagnosing and monitoring many conditions including bone fractures, detecting tumors, diagnosing heart disease or locating an obstruction or foreign body in your pet’s intestines or stomach.

We use digital radiology, which gives instantaneous and accurate results.

Ultrasound is a pain-free, totally non-invasive technique that uses high-frequency sound waves to produce a real-time image of your pet’s internal organs.
Electrocardiography – An ECG is a noninvasive procedure which measures the electrical impulses coming from a pets’ heart in order to detect numerous cardiac conditions that can be difficult to identify through a stethoscope.
A video scope is a diagnostic tool that provides a view into your pet’s body that otherwise would require a far more invasive procedure such as surgery. Images projected onto a computer screen are saved so we may evaluate the progress of treatment.
The ability to perform labwork on-site, results in fast, accurate diagnosis for your pet so treatment can begin promptly.

Surgical Care

We want your pet to be as safe and comfortable as possible during his or her surgical procedure. A designated surgical technician is on hand to monitor your pet before, during and after his or her surgery.

Prior to beginning a surgical procedure, we look for any potential problems that may cause complications from the use of anesthesia. We use this information to develop an anesthetic protocol that is specific to your pet.

During surgery, your pet’s vital signs, including heart rate, respiratory rate and pulse are monitored using a pulse oximeter and additional sophisticated monitoring devices.

Your pet’s comfort is important to us. We have pain medication available and will recommend using it for certain procedures. We can also send additional medication home with you when needed. Less pain results in a faster recovery time for your pet.

When your pet is discharged we will provide you with detailed information on how to properly care for your pet at home after surgery. We are also happy to answer any questions or concerns that may arise once you get your pet home.
