Wellness and Preventive Medicine Our family owned and operated clinic is designed to help prevent disease and illness in your family's pets. Our goal is to help you minimize the need to treat and cure preventable diseases. Preventative medicine increases your pet's chances of having a long and healthy life. We accomplish this through routine annual physical examinations of your pet, proper nutrition, parasite control and through the use of a vaccination program based on an individualized risk assessment for your pet. Depending on your pet lifestyle we are able to offer yearly to three year vaccine program.
Physical Examinations Of all the services we offer our clients, we believe this is the most important one. A thorough examination allows us to pinpoint diseases before they develop. Palpation of your pet from head to toe gives us the opportunity to locate not only unwanted guests but allow us to feel internal organs that may be abnormally enlarged or other serious abnormalities. Touch is the most developed tool in our arsenal of diagnostic instruments. Naturally we do recommend having blood work processed yearly, similar to what your own doctor recommends, as this also provides us with valuable information that can only be retrieved through in-depth analysis.

Dentistry We do routine dental work such as cleaning and extractions by appointment. A pre-dentistry examination is required before any dental surgery in order to determine what needs to be done and also to evaluate your pet's surgical health.
Surgery We have a fully equipped surgical suite here at Rosslyn Veterinary Clinic. This enables us to be able to offer a variety of surgical services for your pet, including affordable spays and neuters, soft tissue surgeries, eye surgeries (cherry eye, entropion, ectropion, etc) and orthopedic surgeries like Cranial Cruciate Ligament Repair, Patellar Luxation, Femoral Head Osteotomy and many more.
Pet Identification A pet is a member of the family, and lost pet can be very emotionally traumatic. Here at Rosslyn Veterinary Clinic we offer microchip implant identification services. Any veterinary clinic or animal shelter equipped with a chip reader can quickly scan any animal for a chip to enable them to track down the animal's family quickly.
In-House Laboratory Quick diagnosis is the key to addressing any disease or illness that may be affecting your pet. Our in-house equipment enables us to do the necessary blood and urine analysis to achieve quick results. A speedy diagnosis means that we can start treatment immediately, often before your pet leaves the clinic. The earlier we can begin treatment, the more likely that treatment will be successful.
In-House Pharmacy We stock most of the routine medications that your pet might require right here in the clinic. This facilitates the quick treatment start that can improve your pets outcome.
Radiology In-house X-Ray equipment aids us in quickly assessing any physical injury or anomaly that may be affecting you pet’s well being. We can then quickly determine the appropriate course of action, medical and/or surgical.
Nutritional Consultations and Pet Foods We have a wide selection of veterinary pet foods and treats for both cats and dogs that can help your dog live a long and happy life. From adult maintenance diets to specially formulated diets, such as hypoallergenic and kidney formulations, we have the diet that will suit your pet. If we do not carry the specific brand of food that you need, we can often specially order it in for you.
