Veterinary Services in Kennett Square, Pennsylvania
Spay and Neuter
Longwood Veterinary Center offers ovariohysterectomy (spay) and castration (neuter) for our patients. While these are common procedures, they are major surgeries and require a great deal of attention to detail and patient care. Longwood Veterinary Center meets AAHA requirements for anesthesia and advanced pain management to ensure your pets are as safe and comfortable as possible during and after these surgeries.
Our hospital utilizes the Companion Therapy Laser system, a form of Low Level Laser Therapy (LLLT), in order to decrease inflammation and pain in our post operative patients. In LLLT a dose of therapeutic light energy is applied to injured tissues resulting in a cellular photochemical process that helps the body repair damaged tissue.
Although their signs may be subtle and even overlooked, veterinary patients feel pain and discomfort in the same manner in which humans do. Recognizing and alleviating pain in animals is absolutely critical to the proper management of the post operative patient. We individualize each pain management protocol to safely and effectively meet your pet’s needs.
Emergency and Critical Care
If an emergency should arise, our experienced staff is trained in triage and administration of
critical first aid response measures in order to provide swift and effective stabilization of your
pet. Emergency care is offered during regular business hours.
