Suburban Animal Hospital — About Us
To provide the most rewarding experience for clients, pets, and employees by satisfying the needs of each beyond expectations. We excel together. To provide the highest level of veterinary and surgical care for our patients, while serving our clients considerately and compassionately.
To accomplish this we must strive to fulfill the following:
- Giving every client more than they expect
- Strengthening the bond through client education
- Excelling together as a veterinary team in all aspects of patient care
- Adhering or exceeding to the highest standards of veterinary care set forth by the American Animal Hospital Association
Our staff consists of a group of people that believe veterinary medicine is not just their job but their way of life. We attend continuing education seminars every year so we can provide the best up to date care possible for your pet. We love all animals and feel that without them in our lives we would be less complete and lack fulfillment. We treat our clients like friends and their pets like our own.
At our animal hospital, it isn't unusual to find one of our technicians sitting in a cage rocking and cradling a sick dog, carrying on a conversation with a homesick cat, fluffing a pillow for a sleepy puppy, or carrying around a recovering surgical patient to monitor the vital signs more closely. In fact, it's just a normal day at Suburban. With hot water heating blankets, continuous EKG heart monitors, oxygen cages, and IV fluid pumps (just to name a few); we pride ourselves on the ability to give pets the most modern and innovative nursing care while maintaining a caring and compassionate relationship with them all.
At Suburban Animal Hospital, we treat your pet as if he or she were our own. Surgical patients have I.V. catheters and fluids, pre-surgical pain medication, and take home pain medication as a requirement, in order to ensure a pain-free experiences and a smooth recovery. We assess any risk factors in your pet with pre-surgical blood work, and pre-anesthetic physical examinations by our doctors, and a good medical history. We use the safest and most effective fast acting anesthetics and long-lasting pain control. We use the newest anesthesia monitors that will regularly check your pet's blood pressure, oxygen level, heart rate, heart rhythm, and body temperature. If your pet is having a dental cleaning or oral surgery, we examine the entire mouth looking to catch developing problems. While your pet is recovering from their procedure, one of our veterinary nurses will be by his or her side, monitoring vital signs and providing them comfort, until your pet is sitting or standing up. We wouldn't want our pets to be alone during that period and neither will yours.
