Starting on August 4, 2021 we will be allowing
clients to come back into the hospital with their pets!
If you prefer Curbside Service, we can continue to accommodate you with that option.
With these changes the following will be our protocol…
• Masks are required inside the hospital
• Only one person will be allowed to come into the hospital with their animal
• When you arrive you will call in (215-343-5300) from the parking lot
• You will wait in your vehicle until a technician escorts you into the hospital
• After your pets examination you will be escorted to a seat in the waiting area
• The receptionist will get your payment. We will only be accepting credit cards, checks or cash. No change can be given so a credit will be on your account for any cash overpayment
• After getting your receipt you will be asked to leave the building so the next patient can come in
Curbside will continue for the following:
• Technician appointments
• Surgical and Non-surgical drop-offs
• Prescription and food pick ups
• Sample drop offs ( fecals, urinalysis)
• Anyone who chooses not to come into the hospital
Cryosurgery (Cryotherapy) for Pets
What Is Veterinary Cryosurgery?
Many pet owners worry about the various warts, skin tags or other masses on their pets. Now, our veterinarians at Animal Hospital of Warwick are able to quickly, effectively and economically remove these skin growths with the help of cryosurgery.
Cryotherapy is a non-invasive and non-traumatic technique that effectively treats an array of skin conditions without the need for anesthesia or traditional surgery. This is a well-proven method for a variety of skin problems, including:
How Does It Work and What to expect?
Cyrosurgery uses liquid nitrogen at -127°F to freeze and kill the unwanted tissue. Our state-of-the-art CryOmega allows precise accuracy to the millimeter to avoid damaging neighboring tissues. Pets only experience minor discomfort during the procedure because the cold temperature numbs the nerve endings.
Treatment sessions typically take five minutes, and are recommended once a week until the mass or growth diminishes in size or falls off. In most cases, by the second or third treatment, significant progress is made. The number of treatments depends on the severity of the skin condition. Our medical team will work with you to devise a treatment plan that is best for your pet.
Benefits to Cryosurgery
Prices for cryosurgery are often less than a regular surgical procedure, making it a win-win for you and your beloved pet. If you think your pet may benefit from this, give us a call at 215-343-5300 to schedule a consultation and learn more.
