Our spacious, open and friendly waiting area was designed to suit both feline and canine friends. In keeping with our “Cat Friendly Practice” mission, NSVH has separate designated waiting areas for cats and dogs. This allows our feline patients to comfortably wait with minimal stress. There is plenty of seating for families, and our benches even have hidden storage drawers with toys and treats to keep kiddos occupied while their pets (and parents) wait for appointments.
NSVH’s modern treatment room is the hub of the entire hospital. Here, we have large cages to comfortably accommodate hospitalized patients, including separate cage areas for cats and dogs. We perform all dental procedures and surgeries at our wet table, utilizing a state-of-the-art digital dental x-ray system and high-speed ultrasonic dental unit. Our treatment room also contains a full laboratory, allowing us to run blood work and urinalysis on sick pets and analyze specimens microscopically.
Our bright and cheerful exam rooms have custom-made wood pallet art designed by a local artisan. One of the exam rooms is designated specifically for cats, providing a comfortable and quiet environment for our feline patients, without any canine smells and sounds.
Our brand new full-body digital radiology system allows us to take high-quality digital radiographs of your pet within minutes. The images are crisp, clear and can be enhanced for visibility with our advanced software.
NSVH’s surgery suite is equipped with advanced monitoring equipment, including pulse oximetry, blood pressure monitoring and an EKG. A dedicated technician monitors vital signs throughout each surgery. Patients are kept warm with a circulating water blanket, and all pets under anesthesia are given intravenous fluids to ensure hydration and blood pressure are maintained throughout. NSVH will perform a variety of soft tissue surgeries including spays, neuters, mass removals and cystotomies (bladder surgery).
