General Services


Below are all of the traditional services we offer here at Rocky Gorge Animal Hospital.

ACUPUNCTURE
acc-1Acupuncture has been used in China for thousands of years to produce a healing response in the body. Acupuncture involves the insertion of needles into certain points of the body where nerve bundles and blood vessels intersect. Through placement in these energy channels, the needles enhance blood circulation and stimulate the release of hormones with the goal of encouraging the body to correct imbalances. More and more pet parents are trying acupuncture for dogs and cats.
CHIROPRACTIC

chiropracticYour pet’s total physical and emotional
well-being can benefit from chiropractic care. When treating a patient with chronic pain, if you take away or lessen that pain, the body as a whole reacts positively to the experience.
Chiropractic therapy may benefit an animal that is experiencing moderate to severe muscle and joint pain as a result of injury or old age. The process is virtually pain free and a great alternative to surgery, especially for older and weaker pets.

DENTAL

teethWe provide dental exams as a part of our annual and biannual physical check-ups.
Depending on what we find during our exams, we may prescribe a professional dental cleaning that includes scaling, polishing and extractions if necessary for diseased teeth.
We recommend continued at-home dental maintenance year round and for your convenience, we sell oral care products at our hospital, including toothpaste, toothbrushes, CET chews, and more.

ENDOSCOPY

endoEndoscopy enables our doctors to see areas they normally wouldn’t be able to, allowing them to diagnose and treat some conditions without performing more invasive surgeries or tests. An endoscope is a camera placed on the end of a small flexible or rigid tube. We can use these to look deep in the ear canal, down the stomach, in the bladder, or even in the abdomen of animals. Endoscopy can be utilized to diagnose bladder stones, urinary disease, ear disease, liver or kidney disease and nasal or throat conditions.

LASER THERAPY

laserLaser therapy can help with healing and pain relief for a variety of conditions. We often utilize these services for patients who suffer from arthritis, post-surgical pain (particularly after orthopedic surgeries), senior-specific conditions, hot spots, skin ailments and more.

EXOTICS

exotics-1We provide veterinary care to a variety of exotic species at the same level that we provide to dogs and cats. Dr. Nelson Bricker provides care to the following exotic pets – non-venomous reptiles, amphibians, birds, small exotic mammals and tarantulas.

SURGERY & LASER SURGERY

We are capable of providing a variety of exceptional veterinary surgeries here at Rocky Gorge. We can provide traditional soft tissue surgeries, orthopedic surgeries, and emergency surgeries as needed. We also have advanced laser surgery technology that can be utilized for a number of our surgical offerings.

ULTRASOUND

ultra-1Ultrasound is a valuable diagnostic tool that uses sound waves to produce images of the body’s internal organs. Abnormalities of the liver, spleen, kidneys, pancreas, bladder and stomach can be detected using ultrasound, often saving the animal’s life as a result.
