Because of the shorter lifespan of our pets, we stress the importance of an annual physical examination. Thorough check-ups and preventive care can help alleviate serious health problems. We offer a wide range of veterinary services to keep your companions feeling their best.
Diagnostic and Therapeutic Services
Our hospital is equipped to provide diagnostic and therapeutic services to care for your pets’ complete health care needs.
We practice modern, “balanced” anesthesia, using appropriate doses and combinations of proven, safe medications to assist in keeping your pet comfortable. Local blocks, epidurals, continuous rate infusions and dental nerve blocks are all routine procedures at Woodside Animal Hospital. All patients have continuous vital sign monitoring and diligent nursing attention by licensed, highly skilled staff during every anesthetic procedure and in recovery.
Our on-site, modern X-ray equipment provides high-quality radiographs to aid in the quick diagnosis of many disorders. These services include digital imaging and dental radiograph (x-ray) capability and review by board-certified radiologists as indicated. Once weekly, we offer in-house ultrasound capability.
Our dental services include preventative care, treatment of calculus and gingivitis via thorough cleaning and polishing above and below the gum line, tooth extractions, and minor oral surgery. We consult and facilitate root canals, major oral surgery, and other specialized work as necessary.
We recommend and offer microchip identification for all pets.
Individualized Flea Control Programs
We develop programs for the specific needs of your pet and your own particular environmental situation. We will review with you the best ways to control fleas in your house, in your yard, and on your pet.
We provide pet boarding for our clients. All boarders receive personal attention from our caring staff. Pets may be dropped off and picked up during regular business hours Monday through Saturday.
Our cat guests enjoy roomy accommodations in a dog free area shared by the veterinarians, allowing close supervision during their stay. The cats may watch hours of continuous loop cat tv featuring fish, squirrels, birds and other creatures of interest while they lounge on elevated perches or in a soft cat bed.
Our canine guests may enjoy a run or kennel, as well as multiple daily outings. We have a fenced exercise yard to provide for their safety. Housemates may be accommodated together at times if desired. We have auditory calming therapy in our kennels to ease possible homesickness and are happy to substitute your pets’ dog bed over our blankets at your request. Please let us know if your pet tends to eat such bedding (or toys), as we all want to avoid such a medical emergency.
We encourage and allow personal items to accompany all our boarders. Rawhides and other Chew toys may be allowed during business hours as requested and at the discretion of the veterinarians. Bones are not permitted due to multiple possible adverse medical complications. Please recognize that while we do our best to ensure items are not lost, that is a possibility as items may need to be washed during your pet’s stay. Please consider bringing your pet’s regular diet to minimize the stress of a dietary change. Science diet products are fed otherwise, and pets requiring prescription diets will be fed the appropriate Science diet product at an additional charge. We do not endorse the feeding of raw diets, and cannot be held responsible for any medical complications related to that feeding practice.
Short boarding visits early in a pet’s life can help them realize that these events are a part of life and not worrisome. We look forward to caring for your pet family!
Our state-of-the-art surgical suite provides for the performance of a wide variety of surgical procedures.
Internal Medicine Consults

We provide ECG services on-site as well as consultations with cardiology specialists.
Our quick, in-house laboratory facilities provide for serum chemistry, hematology, serology, urinalysis and parasite testing. We also utilize commercial veterinary laboratories for specialized diagnostics and consultations.

Why shop at Woodside Animal Hospital instead of internet or Chain Store Pharmacies?
Offering a comprehensive in-house pharmacy offers our patients faster, more personalized service and quicker treatment than would otherwise be possible if our clients had to delay treatment until prescriptions could be filled by other providers. By filling your medications exclusively with us, the risk of medication interactions is lowered. Our pricing is competitive, you never have to pay for expedited shipping, and we are proud to be available to answer your questions comprehensively and accurately. Many large chain human pharmacies do not have sufficient veterinary knowledge to recognize veterinary doses and answer your questions about administration, which are frequently different in pets than humans. Additionally, their staff may not be able to attend to an animal prescriptions as quickly as we can, due to demands on their time communicating with insurance providers for the people prescriptions they are filling! Furthermore, veterinary pharmaceutical manufacturers will only honor product guarantees when medications are prescribed by and purchased from the pet’s veterinarian directly. Our frequent contact with our pharmaceutical suppliers allows us to stay abreast of new educational and research information. Be assured that your support of our pharmacy will help ensure the continued availability of the convenience of a “one-stop shop,” as well as help us keep the costs of other veterinary services lower. Woodside Animal Hospital does offer an online store as well to facilitate shopping at your convenience, day or night. Please ask us for more details.
We will provide guidance regarding your pet’s nutritional needs for each life stage, including dietary requirements for growth, weight maintenance, and performance.
