STEM Cell Treatment
VSC performs in-house STEM cell harvesting and processing using the MediVet system (www.medivet-america.com).   Our most common application is for treatment of osteoarthritis.  We can coordinate STEM cell harvesting and treatment at the same time as your pet’s surgery, or as part of a multimodal approach for medical treatment of osteoarthritis. more >

Rehabilitation
If you have a major orthopedic surgery or sports injury yourself, the first thing your doctor does is recommend physical therapy.  Why do anything less for your pet?  Pet rehabilitation is now a mainstream treatment option. more >

Pain Management and Anesthesia
At VSC we take pain seriously!   Pain control is our goal.  Whether it is pain management for a chronic condition such as arthritis or acute pain associated with a surgery or a procedure, you can rest assured that your pet’s pain will be managed. more >

Advanced Imaging

The specialists at VSC have access to a range of advanced imaging tools. 

 

  • Our digital radiology system allows us to take high resolution radiographic images, which can be sent to a Board Certified radiologist for a second opinion if necessary. 
  • MRI imaging is especially useful for diagnosis of spinal conditions such as lumbosacral disease and intervertebral disc disease,and to diagnose tumors of the spinal cord and brain..
  • At VSC we have a brand new state-of-the-art 8 slice helical CT machine. CT is useful for advanced imaging of the nasal cavity, middle ear, chest, abdomen, limbs and spine.  Since our CT is so fast, most examinations can be performed under sedation. Very sick cats can have their examination performed awake using our CT by placing them in a Perspex tube within the CT.
  • Radioiodine Treatment (I-131) involves a single injection of the isotope I-131 under the skin which destroys the diseased thyroid tissue. more >
