Wellness and Vaccination Programs

Different pets have different needs.  While we do believe that vaccinations are important, we do not believe in over-vaccinating your pet.  Not every pet is potentially exposed to every disease for which a vaccine exists.  Therefore, not every pet requires the full set of vaccinations that are on the market.  Our wellness and vaccination programs are individually tailored to your pet’s needs based on a risk-benefit assessment.  The programs take into account your pet’s age, health status, environment, lifestyle, and traveling history.  Once we have assessed what your pet needs, we will develop a plan for your pet’s preventative care.  A customized approach allows the White Angel team to provide the best care so that your pet can live a longer, healthier life.


White Angel is still offering Wellness Wednesdays!

Every Wednesday, all vaccinations are provided at 50% off of our regular prices.  Our goal is to educate the public on preventing life-threatening diseases and allowing your pet to live the longest, healthiest life possible.  Our knowledgeable doctors and staff can answer all of your questions on providing optimal care for your pet.  Available by appointment or drop off- please schedule in advance.  Book early, as we fill up quickly! 

Our wellness plans are an easy, affordable way to provide your pet with recommended preventative maintenance care.  We tailor each plan to meet your individual pet's needs.

Client Education

At White Angel, we schedule 30-minute appointments in order to allow our veterinarian and professional staff the opportunity to be thorough and informative. We provide you with answers to your questions about your pet’s care, including nutritional and behavioral counseling as well as information about diseases and wellness care. We are here to help you! Please do not hesitate to ask if you have any questions during an office visit.

Emergencies

With our vast array of modern equipment we can quickly and accurately diagnose and treat your pet’s condition. Our well-trained staff and doctor are there for you in an emergency situation. When seconds count, you can count on White Angel.

Surgery

At White Angel Animal Hospital, we perform most soft tissue as well as orthopedic surgical procedures. Our modern surgical suite is fully equipped to perform even the most complicated surgery. Completely isolated from the remainder of the hospital, the surgery suite can accommodate patients of all size while maintaining a sterile surgical environment. A heated surgery table prevents patients from getting too cold while under anesthesia. The advanced monitoring equipment measures temperature, EKG, blood pressure, oxygen saturation in the blood, and respiration, all of which are monitored closely and charted during anesthetic procedures.

Laser Surgery

We are also pleased to offer laser surgery capabilities using the Cutting Edge 15 Watt CO2 Laser System. Laser technology affords a higher quality surgical experience by decreasing intra-operative bleeding and causing less tissue damage during surgery. This allows our patients to heal faster and experience less pain after surgery. Surgical procedures such as declaws and mass removals will particularly benefit from the use of laser technology.

Cold Laser Therapy

We are also pleased to offer our veterinary patients cold laser therapy.  This is a rapidly emerging new technology that allows us to reduce pain and inflammation and improve the quality of life in our patients without the use of drugs or surgery.

Dentistry

Periodontal disease is the most common form of infection that is seen in dogs and cats. Between 75% to 80% of dogs aged 2 years and older are affected, and periodontal disease is the leading cause of tooth loss in dogs. Dental disease is not just limited to the oral cavity- bacteria from the mouth enter the bloodstream and can affect major organs, such as the heart, lungs, liver, and kidneys. As is the case with other diseases, prevention is the best strategy. At White Angel we counsel you on different ways to prevent periodontal disease, such as dental scaling. Scaling the teeth regularly prevents gingivitis from progressing to irreversible periodontitis. We carry the most advanced dental equipment so that we may safely perform dentistry, from simple scaling and polishing to more complicated extractions.

Complete In-House Diagnostic Laboratory

White Angel can test in-house and deliver accurate and immediate information on blood chemistries, electrolytes, hematology, endocrinology, and urine. This allows for a more rapid diagnosis so that necessary treatments can be started earlier.

Digital Radiography

White Angel uses the IDEXX-DR™ 1417 Digital Radiography System, which delivers unprecedented image clarity in just 6 seconds. The increased detail and faster results lead to a much more rapid, accurate diagnosis. This technology facilitates transfer to a board-certified radiologist for official readings when required.

Ultrasound

This valuable tool works as an aid in the diagnosis of many medical conditions by allowing our doctors to visualize internal organs such as the liver, kidneys, spleen, bladder and heart. The procedure uses the touch of a probe making it a painless, non –invasive diagnostic test. Ultrasound-guided biopsies and aspirates of certain organs or masses can also give our doctors a more definitive diagnosis of the condition of the patient.

Telemedicine

With more than 75 specialists available through our reference laboratory, we offer you the most extensive medical knowledge. At White Angel we can transmit our radiographs, ultrasound images, and EKG readings online to obtain a second opinion from a board-certified specialist. We are also members of the Veterinary Information Network, an online network in which our doctors can consult with thousands of other doctors worldwide.

Pain Management

Our pain management protocols rely on a multi-modal approach to achieve better pain relief while using lower doses of individual drugs. We routinely give our surgery patients pain medication just before and after the procedures to alleviate post-operative discomfort. We also treat painful conditions such as degenerative joint disease and hip dysplasia so that your pet can maintain a good quality of life.

On-Site Pharmacy

White Angel offers the most extensive, up-to-date veterinary pharmacy. This allows our doctors the freedom to prescribe the drug most suitable for the case.


Microchipping

Permanent identification for your pet. Microchipping has united millions of lost pets with their families. Microchipping is very quick and virtually painless. The microchip is about the size of a grain of rice. White Angel uses the Home Again pet microchip brand.

Stem Cell Therapy
Is your pet reluctant to get up or jump into the car? Has your pet been less active, or does your senior pet just seem to be "getting old"? These symptoms are often caused by arthritis. Just like people, our dogs and cats suffer from arthritis due to past injuries or joint damage. Stem cells are cells which have the ability to become other cells, thereby regenerating damaged tissue. Dr Zilkha has recently become accredited to provide stem cell therapy to her patients. VetStem harvests your pet's own stem cells for injection back to your pet which leads to decreased inflammation, decreased pain, decreased scarring, and increased healing. The goal with stem cell therapy is to stop ongoing joint damage and promote healing, which leads to a return to function and increased quality of life. Stem cell therapy can also be used to treat kidney failure in cats and has many other applications which are currently being researched.
