At some point in your pet’s life, there may be a need for diagnostic imaging in the form of radiographs (x-rays) or an ultrasound study (sonogram). Grove Veterinary Clinic offers the latest technology in diagnostic imaging to provide you and your companion the best in comprehensive veterinary care.
We utilize the safest available anesthetics to provide an extra margin of safety, especially for our older or high-risk patients. Using the most modern equipment, the patient's vital signs are monitored closely during all anesthetic procedures.
We are well equipped to perform all routine surgeries for your pet. We also perform a wide range of non-routine type surgeries and if needed can provide a referral to an appropriate specialist. Some surgeries that we offer for dogs and cats at Grove Veterinary Clinic include:
We are the only veterinary practice in the area to offer radiosurgery, which employs a special low-temperature, high frequency radiowave for better surgical outcomes. The incision is clean and precise; the tissues and skin are not burned or charred as they are with laser-based devices. Blood vessels are cauterized cleanly without heat and without the application of an electrical current. Electrical cautery units burn tissue with heat generated by an electrical current, and lasers burn tissue with a focused beam, creating a charred tissue environment that delays the healing process. Radiosurgery provides a better outcome by promoting less tissue damage, which results in LESS PAIN and RAPID HEALING. Your pets feel better more quickly when radiosurgery is employed.

Most dogs and cats eventually need a professional dental cleaning using an ultrasonic scaler such as your dentist might use. We also perform hand scaling of the teeth under the gum line where tartar often accumulates (sub gingival root planing), then polish the teeth to reduce the recurrence of tartar buildup. We also apply fluoride to your pet’s teeth during the dental.Dental procedures are performed using the same inhalation anesthetic and careful monitoring techniques that we use for our surgical patients. Many pets have their teeth cleaned on an annual basis to help ensure optimal oral health.
Additional dental and oral procedures offered include:
Grove Veterinary Clinic routinely recommends the use of the following dental care products. Our veterinarians and staff can discuss the different products with you to figure out which dental care strategy is the most appropriate for your pet and you.
We wish to keep our pets healthy and happy for as long as possible and this can be achieved through exercise, a healthy diet and regular veterinary check ups. Aging changes such as arthritis, vision and hearing losses are normal and cannot be prevented. Many changes related to disease, however, can be managed and treated successfully if detected early. In addition to the routine preventative care for adult dogs and cats, we offer senior wellness testing that includes the collection of blood and urine samples and laboratory analysis for detection of liver and kidney disease, diabetes and anemia. Through interpretation of the test results and careful consideration of history and physical exam findings, our veterinarians will be able to discuss any life-improving recommendations we may have. These recommendations may include diet changes, medications, supplements, lifestyle changes, and other strategies to improve your senior pet’s well being.
Grove Veterinary Clinic carries several therapeutic diets that may be prescribed for your pet. The doctors at Grove Veterinary Clinic may recommend a prescription diet as a medical treatment in your pet’s overall health care plan. Remember to always consult our veterinarians if you want to change your pet’s food or if you have concerns regarding your pet’s current diet. We carry the dry and canned versions of many different therapeutic diets. The brand names we carry are:
