Ocular disease is common in veterinary medicine and Lewisburg Animal Hospital is ready to address many eye diseases as well as emergencies. We offer in-house tonometry to diagnose and monitor glaucoma or uveitis cases.
Sometimes ocular disease can require the expertise of a board-certified veterinary ophthalmologist. In this case, we can refer your pet to a veterinary ophthalmology practice nearby.
Lewisburg Animal Hospital offers full Digital Radiology Service, including OFA certification of hips and elbows. In addition, we can submit radiographs to board-certified veterinary radiologists for review. This is like having a board-certified radiologist on staff and is great for second opinions and more complex cases.
We also offer Ultrasonography services in our hospital. Commonly we can diagnose pregnancy, bladder stones, liver disease, and other abnormalities in our practice. Ultrasound is a great non-invasive diagnostic tool.

While our doctors can take care of most of your pets’ needs, occasionally the services of a veterinary specialist are required. These doctors have completed a veterinary program followed by an internship and residency to specialize in their chosen area of expertise. Furthermore, they have passed examinations to become boarded in their respective specialties. Examples of cases we may refer include neurological disease, complex metabolic diseases, difficult dermatological disorders, behavioral issues, and complex surgical cases.
Our referral partners communicate with our doctors to discuss their findings. In many cases, referral cases are then sent back to our hospital for follow-up care. If referral is recommended, our doctors will discuss your pet’s case with you and guide you through this process.
An average of 85% of pets over the age of two years have dental disease which can lead to oral pain, bad breath, and early tooth loss. Some pets may need professional dental care as often as twice a year. Lewisburg Animal Hospital provides complete scaling and polishing of your pet’s pearly whites and dental extractions when necessary.
Many owners feel advanced age prohibits their pet from undergoing dental procedures. This is simply not true as most of our patients undergoing dental procedures are geriatric. Many owners report their older dogs becoming much more active after addressing dental disease.
During dental procedures, we utilize gas anesthesia as well as local anesthetic blocks in the case of dental extractions. Local dental blocks help to assure patient safety by minimizing the amount of general anesthesia needed. At our hospital, we ALWAYS have a technician monitoring our anesthetized patients, and we utilize monitoring equipment that measures blood pressure, oxygen levels, heart rate, body temperature, and ECG. In addition, we utilize warming systems such as the Hot Dog Warming System or Circulating Warm Water Blankets to maintain patient body temperature during dental procedures.
