You will be greeted in our spacious lobby by our Client Service Representatives - always eager to make your visit an excellent one! We have a children's play area to keep the youngsters entertained. There are multiple seating areas so your pet does not have to interact with other pets if preferred. We pride ourselves on efficient scheduling to minimize wait time for our clients but if you do have to spend time in our lobby, we believe it will be a pleasant experience.
Each spacious exam room is equipped with a hydraulic lift table. This exam table weighs your pet as well as providing the ability to put the dog/cat at a level that makes the exam most comfortable and efficient. Gehrman Animal Hospital is fully computerized, which means easier access to your pet's medical records. Our system promotes efficiency as well as improving the standard of care for all of our patients (and their owners!).
Gehrman Animal Hospital boasts the latest digital radiography! This benefits the patient by being able to get instant digital images, which reduces the number of image exposures needed. There is no chemical processing involved and the detail is far superior to film radiographs.
The Treatment Room is at the center of all activity in the hospital. We have 3 "wet tables" with 2 of them containing dental workstations. Pets are pre-medicated and prepared for anesthesia in the treatment room. Minor procedures such as wound treatment or sedation surgeries are performed in this room. If your pet needs to have blood drawn or a urine sample collected, often the doctor will bring your pet to this room which is equipped to handle lab sample collection. The large windows allow the staff to always view and monitor hospitalized or recovering patients.
We carry veterinary recommended CET dental home care products, behavior modification products (such as Feliway and Adaptil), supplements, high quality treats and special snacks for your dog or cat. We also carry medication administration products such as Pill Pockets. Additionally, Gehrman Animal Hospital carries Royal Canin and Purina prescription diets in stock. We can order other prescription diets through our online store!
Our spacious and well equipped surgery suite provides all of the essential items to ensure the best outcome for any surgical procedure. Gehrman Animal Hospital boasts high tech monitoring equipment, which continually measures blood pressure, oxygen saturation rate, heart rate, respiration rate and temperature during anesthesia and recovery. We are high tech, but we are also high touch! The CVT's monitoring your pet continuously check vitals and note any concerns to the Doctor. During surgery, your pet is placed on a warming surface to keep their temperature stable. An IV infusion pump will supply the critical fluids to your pet to assist maintaining blood pressure, as well as restore any blood or fluid loss. Sterile surgical procedures are scrupiously followed which include a sterile gown, hat, mask and sterile gloves. We are proud of the excellent standard of care we practice at Gehrman Animal Hospital.
Clients now have many choices when it comes to filling their pets prescription medication. Gehrman Animal Hospital carries only manufacturer guaranteed products. We offer the convenience factor of having your presciption filled immediately during your appointment and you can be assured that you are receiving the proper medication and the correct dosage instructions. Gehrman Animal Hospital also offers a convenient online pharmacy for delivery to your home, which clients can access 24 hours a day to order medication refills. The Online Pharmacy and store, which includes over the counter and convenience products, is accessible through your pet's pet portal, Petly. Competitively priced, we meet or beat other online pharmacies AND you can be proud to support your local veterinary hospital! Gehrman Animal Hospital can also ship medications and prescription food directly to your home with our prescription mail service. One of our staff members will be happy to explain the details!
