Medical Services

New Hartford Animal Hospital offers comprehensive medical services including preventive care, surgery, dentistry, diagnostics, and critical and emergency care. Our team of doctors are some of the best in the area who work together cohesively on all complicated cases. This means you get not only one doctor but a team of dedicated professionals who collaborate on your pet’s medical condition to insure the best possible outcome.

Your pet needs ongoing life stage preventive care to ensure a long and healthy life. The information provided to your veterinarian at each examination becomes part of your pet’s medical history and can be critical if a sudden illness arises.

Preventive visits assess the overall health of your pet. As a hospital accredited by the American Animal Hospital Association (why is AAHA accreditation so important), our comprehensive examination screens your pet’s weight, body condition, and dental grade, and evaluates every major body system.

By establishing a good relationship with your pet at an early age, we will be able to create an individual plan for his or her lifetime of good health and happiness.

In many instances, physical examinations alone are simply not enough to determine overall health or diagnose illness in your pet. Fortunately, with the continued advances that are being made in the area of veterinary diagnostics and radiographs, the veterinarians at New Hartford Animal Hospital are able to take a much more detailed look at the cause of pet medical conditions. By equipping our office and staff with state-of-the-art, in-house diagnostic tools and equipment, we are able to accurately and more rapidly diagnose and treat your pet’s illnesses, ensuring your pet returns home as swiftly as possible.

Digital Radiology

Digital radiology is state of the art technology and produces higher quality diagnostic images. This often reduces the number of radiographs that need to be taken, saving your pet a more lengthy procedure and you money. Our high quality images can be sent to a specialist via email when a STAT consultation is needed.

Diagnostic Laboratory

Our sophisticated diagnostic laboratory allows us to perform many tests right in our hospital, eliminating critical wait time. From routine parasite analysis, CBCs and urinalysis to comprehensive chemistry and electrolyte screening, our lab technicians deliver results quickly so your pet can be treated and on the road to recovery as soon as possible.

Diagnostic Ultrasound

Ultrasound is a non-invasive diagnostic procedure which is often used along with radiographs in a multimodal approach to diagnosis. With Ultrasound, specially generated sound waves are focused towards the heart, abdominal organs, or other tissues of the body. The returning ‘echoes’ give your doctor information about changes or abnormalities in the size, shape, density, and disease patterns in those organs and tissues. In addition to standard diagnostic training, Dr. Mora received extensive training from the Veterinary Multi imaging Center under the direct supervision of board certified diagnosticians. More complicated cases are referred to him within our practice.

Diagnostic Electrocardiograms

Animals, like people, can suffer from a wide variety of heart diseases. To better determine your pet’s heart health, New Hartford Animal Hospital utilizes the latest veterinary technology. Electrocardiograms (ECGs) are a standard, non-invasive technique for assessing cardiac pathology and function. ECGs record the electrical activity of the heart and can measure and diagnose abnormal rhythms of the heart and identify a damaged heart.

The team of veterinarians of New Hartford Animal Hospital can perform a variety of surgical procedures for your pet. Whether in for a routine procedure such as a neutering or mass removal, or a more complex orthopedic or emergency procedure, you can be assured your pet will receive the finest surgical care available. Our surgical suite is completely sterile and segregated from our non-sterile procedure areas. Our well-lighted surgical suite boasts a heated, state of the art surgical table, a separate air handling system, and a completely sterile environment which ensures comfort and safety for your pet.

Orthopedic Surgery

New Hartford Animal Hospital is equipped with a state-of-the-art surgical suite designed to accommodate complex soft-tissue, orthopedic and emergency surgeries. Several of our surgeons have many years of experience performing a wide range of orthopedic surgeries ranging from cruciate to patella (kneecap) repairs to complicated fracture repair surgeries.

Laser therapy is a natural method of healing that uses specific wavelengths of light to administer accurate measured doses of energy directly to a treatment site. Laser therapy works in several ways to heal injuries and manage pain. It increases the release of endorphins (natural painkillers) and decreases inflammation and nerve conduction which helps return tissue to a normal state.

At NHAH, our veterinarians are certified in laser therapy and use it to treat many different conditions including:

  • Soft tissue wounds
  • Surgical incisions
  • Stomatitis (Gingivitis)
  • Otitis (Ear infections)
  • Granulomas
  • Ulcers
  • Burns
  • Pain Management

New Hartford Animal Hospital offers 24-hour emergency service for our clients. Our veterinarians and veterinary technicians are on call to meet your pet’s needs in the event of a life-threatening emergency after hours. If you have an emergency, call our hospital line. It is attended 24 hours a day, providing our clients with an immediate response and prompt treatment.

Critical Care

Our doctors and technical staff are trained to handle emergencies and critical care patients with swift precision, ensuring the best possible outcome for your pet. Their extensive knowledge and continuous training keep them at the forefront of the most advanced emergency care in the veterinary industry. Because of this, we are able to offer the best care, 24/7/365, to our most critically ill patients.

One of the healthiest things you can do for your pet is to take good care of their teeth and gums. This should begin at an early age with daily brushing, dental treats, a good diet, and regular oral exams. Even if you do brush your pet’s teeth daily, they likely will still require professional dental cleanings. These cleanings will remove plaque below the gum line where brushing won’t reach.
