Smithtown Village Animal Hospital provides advanced and compassionate care for your sick cat or dog. We understand how stressful it can be when your pet is not feeling well, and we offer the highest standard of veterinary care to help your pet get better fast.
Our practice has served the Smithtown pet community for over 55 years and our doctors have extensive experience in veterinary medicine. We use modern techniques and state-of-the-art diagnostic technology to quickly identify potential illness and disease. Accurate diagnoses are essential to creating efficient treatment plans and better health outcomes for sick pets, and our team is always ready to help our pet patients get back on track to a happy and healthy life.
Digital x-ray images offer an enhanced look at your cat or dog’s internal health. Digital radiographs are useful in identifying potential issues in internal organs and systems such as heart and lung conditions, musculoskeletal problems, and abdominal illnesses. The x-rays are non-invasive and painless and, if necessary, can be instantly sent to an outside specialist for review.
We provide on-site ultrasound at Smithtown Village Animal Hospital. Ultrasound is a non-invasive diagnostic imaging tool that provides a clear picture of your pet’s internal organs. Ultrasound is painless and allows our doctors to quickly diagnose internal obstructions, bladder stones, abdominal masses, and reproductive issues.
Smithtown Village Animal Hospital utilizes the latest lab equipment and technologies to analyze bloodwork (complete blood count [CBC] and blood serum tests) and provide pre-anesthetic screening for our surgery patients. We also run blood chemistry panels, blood antibody/antigen tests for Lyme, Felv, FIV, heartworm and other tick borne diseases. Microscopic cytology analysis is used to diagnose ear and skin diseases. Patients can be monitored to assess blood pressure, oxygen levels and heart rate/rhythm.
An ECG (electrocardiogram) is a test that allows our veterinarians and technicians to get a better understanding of whether or not your pet’s heart is healthy. This test is especially helpful for diagnosing and treating heart arrhythmias. We use this tool for monitoring during procedures, wellness checks and/ or if your pet is sick with heart disease. If necessary, your pet’s ecg is sent for an evaluation with a veterinary cardiologist who can help us diagnose and treat heart disease.
If your pet is critically ill and needs emergency care outside our normal office hours, we recommend the following hospitals:
