Fairmont Pet Hospital uses the latest technology and techniques to correctly diagnose and cure your pet’s ailments.
Fairmont Pet Hospital has a in-house laboratory facility. It boasts a Chemistry Analyzer, Serum Chemistry Analyzer, an Automated Blood Analyzer, three centrifuges, a microscope, a glucometer, a clinical refractometer, reagents and test strips for a variety of procedures and access to an outside lab for more specialized testing.
Safety is our primary concern at Fairmont Pet Hospital. We recommend pre-anesthesia bloodwork on all surgeries, and use only state-of-the-art anesthetics. All surgeries are monitored by a technician and a pulse oximeter. We practice strict aseptic technique on all surgeries.
Fairmont Pet Hospital offers dental cleaning services to our patients with tartar buildup. We use a Spartan Prophy Plus dental cleaner to remove the tartar, and then polish the teeth to prolong the effect of the cleaning. Tartar buildup does damage the enamel of the teeth, so the tartar builds up again faster than it did originally, but brushing the teeth can slow its progress significantly. We must anesthetize the patient to perform a dental cleaning, but they are usually able to go home the same day.
All animals undergoing anesthetic procedures at Fairmont Pet Hospital can have their vitals monitored with our VetSpecs® VSM8 vitalstatistics monitoring system. The VSM8 can monitor:
- Heart rate
- Core body temperature
- Respiration rate
- Respiration waveform
- Blood oxygen level
The ECG function of the VSM8 will also allow us to perform limited in-house electrocardiograms.
