Anesthesia: Our use of sevoflurane and isoflurane, state-of-the-art gas anesthetics, minimizes the risk of anesthesia in all patients but especially in birds, newborns, older animals, or sick pets. Anesthetic risk is further minimized by use of a pulse oximeter to monitor patient pulse rate and blood oxygen saturation during anesthesia.

Laboratory: Tri-City Animal & Bird Clinic is equipped with the latest in on-site veterinary laboratory equipment.

Rapid results mean we can make a diagnosis faster and start the appropriate treatment sooner. Furthermore, our blood analyzers require only a small quantity of blood to be taken from our patients. This small sample size minimizes the risk to our patients and allows us to test pets less than one pound in weight. For more extensive testing or for tests that are not commonly performed, our samples are sent to various outside veterinary labs that specialize in the testing being requested or the species of animals being tested.
