Here at Lehigh Valley Animal Hospital, we believe in the importance of annual preventive care physical examinations for every pet to ensure that they live long, healthy, and happy lives with their families. As part of your pet's annual preventive care examination, one of our experienced doctors will review recommended vaccinations, preventative diagnostic testing, parasite protection, and perform a thorough dental examination. This is an opportunity for your vet to perform a head-to-tail thorough exam and potentially diagnose underlying health issues, which may provide your pet with necessary medications or treatments before symptoms arise.
We have at least one veterinarian and a team of skilled veterinary nurses on duty 6 days a week who are trained and equipped to handle any issue your pet has. Whether it has been a few days since the onset of symptoms or mere moments since a traumatic injury, our team is prepared to give your pet the care needed. With our state of the art laboratory equipment, digital diagnostic imaging, sterile surgical suites, and fully stocked in-house pharmacy, you can rest assured that your pet will be treated promptly and carefully.
Emergencies include cases such as car accidents, severe lacerations, straining or painful urination, or eye injuries. If possible, it is best to call before coming in so that a team member can advise you on your particular emergency and prepare for your pet's arrival.
In the event of ingestion of a potentially poisonous material, you may contact the Animal Poison Control Center at (855) 764-7661 to receive immediate assistance.
For after hours emergencies, please contact Valley Central Veterinary Referral and Emergency Center at (610) 435-1553.
Our facilities are home to advanced surgical equipment which enable our veterinary staff to perform a wide range of surgical procedures. From routine soft-tissue surgeries to complex orthopedic stabilization, our veterinary team creates customized anesthetic protocols for each patient based on a number of factors to ensure that every surgery goes smoothly from start to finish.
Our skilled staff conducts extensive preoperative diagnostics and monitors vital signs closely during the entirety of each procedure for every patient, tailoring every step of the surgical plan to your pet's specific needs.
After surgery, our staff continues to monitor patients throughout the recovery process and applies their knowledge of pain management to keep pets comfortable throughout their stay and after they are discharged.
Call us for more information or to schedule a physical exam to discuss possible surgical options.
Lehigh Valley Animal Hospital now proudly offers cold laser therapy at both of our convenient locations. Also known as low-level light therapy, the specific wavelengths of laser light facilitate circulation and healing by stimulating light-sensitive elements within soft tissue cells. Increased circulation reduces inflammation and pain, decreases healing time, and can treat a vast array of conditions.
At LVAH we not only apply our cold laser treatments to our postoperative cases to speed up the healing process, but we have also seen remarkable success with treating soft tissue injuries, arthritis, hip dysplasia, allergies and other dermatological issues, and more. While each case is different, we typically advise starting with several treatments per week and tapering down in frequency once improvement is noted.
