Practice Tour

Waiting Area

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.


Treatment Room

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.


Exam Rooms

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.


Radiology

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.


Surgery

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).

But the Humane Society is Cheaper

A client said to me today: “My brother had his dog spayed at the Humane Society and it was only $100. Why is your clinic so much more expensive? Cost is an issue for us and if all things are equal, we would rather have our dog spayed there, too.” Sigh. All things aren’t equal […]

Happy Cat Month

My friends at the CATalyst Council have designated September as Happy Cat Month, and for good reason. Despite the fact that there are significantly more pet cats than dogs in America (75 million cats vs. 69 million dogs), dogs come to the vet more than twice as often as cats. Many cats go to the vet […]
