Radiology - or X-rays - help our veterinarians evaluate musculoskeletal, cardiovascular (cardiopulmonary), gastrointestinal, reproductive, and urinary systems. At Homestead Small Animal, we have the most advanced digital x-ray technology that gives us accurate results within minutes. We also offer digital radiology consults through SignalPET that provides additional information.
We offer the most advanced surgical techniques and technology. All patients are carefully screened for safety, and anesthetics are specifically tailored to your pet. Surgical services and facilities include a board-certified surgeon available for consultation plus a fully trained veterinary and technical staff to ensure the safest, most efficient, state-of-the-art procedures for your pet. During the procedure, a heated surgery table is provided for greater comfort, advanced sterilization techniques are utilized while monitoring ECG, Pulse Ox, blood pressure, capnography, and intravenous fluid administration. We always strive to provide intense post-op care to ensure adequate pain management and safe recovery from anesthesia.
Veterinary patients feel pain and discomfort under the same circumstances as people do. We know that recognizing and alleviating pain in animals is the essence of good patient care. We have many multi-modal options for both dogs and cats to ensure their pain is adequately managed without causing further harm.
Penn Hip/OFA Certification
This is a diagnostic radiographic technique used to detect a genetic disorder known as Canine Hip Dysplasia (CHD). CHD is the most common inherited orthopedic disease in dogs. It is a degenerative, developmental condition, leading to painful hip osteoarthritis, stiffness, and diminished quality of life and can affect any breed of dog. Even though there is no medical or surgical cure, early detection is key. By maintaining a healthy weight and giving appropriate supplements we can help keep your pet comfortable and happy.

Pets are like our children - we feed, nurture, and lavish attention to them. Our qualified kennel attendants do the same when you can't be there. We provide tender loving care (such as brushing and cuddling), in our climate-controlled boarding facility. Each pet is given their own kennel with a blanket, water, and food (as directed by the pet owner). They are taken for a walk multiple times daily to our grassy backyard area where they can stretch their legs and take care of business. Our kennels are supervised by a veterinarian to ensure the best quality care for your pet. We welcome cats and dogs of all varieties and even those with special needs such as; medications, blindness, diabetes, joint or back problems, etc. For cats, we offer a cat condo option where there are two levels to move around and play.
