Medical Advances for your Pet

Gone are the days when a pet was considered “just a dog” or “just a cat.” These days, pets are commonly referred to as furbabies and are considered as much a part of the family as their human counterparts. Some of us may even like our fur-family members better than our human family members! Pet owners are demanding the same level of care for their pets as they do for themselves. At Brogli, Lane, Weaver & Alexander Animal Hospital we are constantly striving to provide the highest level of care for your pets.

With that said, we wanted to take this opportunity to recap some of the most advanced services available in veterinary medicine that we are proud to provide your pet right here at BLWA.

1. In-House Ultrasound

While x-rays provide us with good images of bone, an ultrasound is the best way to identify problems with internal organs and soft tissue. Providing this service in-house enables us to get you immediate results and provide treatment without delays caused by referring patients out to other hospitals.

2. Dental X-Rays

Dental x-rays show us what the naked eye cannot see and tell us what our pets can’t say. They allow us to identify and treat disease under the gum line that cause a lot of discomfort. Once these problems are identified we can treat them and prevent years of pain and health problems.

3. Cold Laser Therapy

This noninvasive procedure treats pain associated with arthritis, injuries, surgery and other conditions. It can also be used to treat wounds and aid in the healing process. The laser works by stimulating cell growth and blood circulation, which in turn, works to heal the affected areas.

4. Laser Surgery

One benefit of laser surgery is a faster recovery time after your pet’s procedure. The laser works by sealing nerves, soft tissue and blood vessels as it cuts. This makes the healing process faster and less painful for your pet.

5. Digital Radiography

Digital imaging allows our veterinarians to view your pet’s x-rays immediately and with better image clarity than a regular x-ray. We are able to quickly identify tumors, bladder stones, bone fractures and foreign objects. In turn, this allows us to maximize your pets comfort by diagnosing and treating your pet without delay.

6. In-House Diagnostics

Our state of the art lab equipment allows us provide the results of your pet’s bloodwork within a matter of minutes. Routine bloodwork is one of the most important things you can do for your pet. By detecting disease early we can often intervene using special diets or medications to slow or halt disease progression.

We are here to help! Give us a call at 615-893-1728 or drop us a line at if have questions or would like to schedule your pet an appointment!
