Sometimes hospitalization is inevitable. And for those times when you need to hospitalize your pet, we are ready. Our hospital is complete with heart-worm treatments, IV fluid pumps, continuous monitoring, sanitary rooms, and trained staff with an isolation room to keep contagious diseases separate from the rest of the hospital so your pet can recover in quiet. Our service is not without a backup plan. We work with a local emergency clinic for after hours care. Having worked in southeast VA, where heartworm is very prevalent, before coming here, Dr. Pettigrew has treated hundreds of patients with great success.
