Laser therapy is a painless process that can be used to treat a variety of ailments. Laser therapy helps increase circulation, reduce inflammation, reduce pain, and assist with tissue healing. At Veterinary Medical Center of Woodland Hills, we use a CO2 Class IV laser.
It’s scary when a pet becomes separated from his or her owner. When a pet and owner are separated, the owner may worry about their pet’s safety, who will find their pet, and how they will be reunited. Pets have been known to slip their collars and I.D. tags can fall off or become unreadable. Microchipping offers a permanent solution to these questions and situations.
A small microchip is placed under the skin between the shoulder blades. The microchip has an identification number on it that can be read with a scanner. Veterinarian offices and animal shelters all have the ability to read these microchips, leading to a quicker reunification of owner and pet!

EKG stands for electrocardiogram, a non-invasive procedure that allows our team to monitor your pet’s heart health and performance. In addition to measuring the heartbeat, it also measures the size and position of the heart chambers. The results will show our team any irregularities or damage to your pet’s heart.
Acupuncture has been a practice in China for thousands of years to treat ailments and as preventive medicine. It involves special needles in particular points in the body to promote a healing response. It is used to treat a variety of ailments including allergies, gastrointestinal issues, arthritis, asthma, and much more.
It’s no secret that preventive care is much better than treating illness and disease. Our team will work with you to develop the best schedule of preventive care for your furry friends. Fleas, ticks, and heartworm disease are all dangerous to your pets and, thankfully, all preventable! Fleas and ticks are not only a source of irritation to your pet, but they can also harbor disease and adversely affect your pet’s health. Heartworm is a dangerous parasite that lives in the heart of dogs and cats, damages the heart muscle, and can be fatal. The Veterinary Medical Center team can recommend the best preventative products for your pet to keep them healthy and happy.
In addition to being used for reducing inflammation and pain management, lasers have become an important tool in veterinary surgery. Laser surgery involves a variety of advantages including less bleeding and pain, reduced risk for infection, and a quicker recovery. We’re pleased to offer this cutting-edge technology for our patients.
Spay and Neuter
Spaying and neutering will help your pet live a longer, healthier life. This procedure can be done at any age but is ideally done early in life.
Spaying your female cat or dog will reduce problems such as pyometra (deadly infection of the uterus); breast tumors (benign or cancerous); the pet overpopulation and massive euthanasia of unwanted strays.
Neutering your male cat or dog will reduce problems such as testicular cancer, some diseases of the prostate, unwanted behaviors such as dominance aggression, marking territory and wandering. Pets who wander are much more likely to get hit by a car.
Did you know that according to the American Veterinary Dental Society, 70% of adult cats and 80% of adult dogs show symptoms of oral disease?! That’s a lot! Just like you need to see your dentist for regular cleanings, so do your pets.
If you’ve noticed yellowing of your pet’s teeth, bad breath, bleeding, or broken teeth, something just isn’t right. Your pet’s oral health is directly connected to their overall health. Please contact us if you notice these symptoms, and our team will be here to help.
When your pet isn’t feeling quite like his or her normal self, we’ll get to work to figure out exactly what’s wrong. Ultrasounds allow us to examine your pet’s internal organs. This helps us diagnose issues and avoid unnecessary exploratory surgery.
An endoscopy is a procedure that utilizes an endoscope, a flexible tube with a camera at the end. The flexible tube allows us to use a variety of tools to take a biopsy sample or retrieve foreign objects. The camera at the end allows us to take photos of your pet’s organs and tissue to assist in the diagnosis.
