There is virtually no other veterinary hospital like it anywhere in the area. The doctors and staff at the Animal & Bird Medical Center give you and your pet the most tender loving care in one of the most state of the art hospitals in Florida. The hospital is owned by Dr. Joel Murphy who has written books, lectured all over the world and is recognized as a national authority on pet care. He has assembled a team of highly trained professionals to care for your pet.
In an emergency, mere minutes can make a huge difference for your pet's health and survival. It's critical for the vet to make an accurate diagnosis of the problem the moment you bring your pet in. We have the ability to do immediate blood diagnostic tests with in-house equipment that will do all of the biochemical, electrolytical and hematologic lab tests right here in the office and complete them in a matter of minutes! At other vet hospitals that don't have this technology, your pet would have to wait 12 to 24 hours for lab results from an outside lab, and that, quite frankly, could end in tragedy for you and your pet.
The Animal & Bird Medical Center is equipped with the same anesthetic monitoring equipment that's used on people in today's best hospitals, because accurate monitoring during surgery is critical to avoiding tragedy while your pet is on the operating table. Advanced monitoring systems will alert Dr. Murphy and his staff of ALL potential problems during a surgical procedure. Our machines are so sensitive that we know when your pet's oxygen level changes by just 2%! When a pet is under anesthesia at our hospital they are monitored with Nalcor pulse oximetry, Dinamap blood pressure, EKG and we have an ADS 1000 computer breathing for your pet - positive pressure ventilation just like the care given to children in a human hospital.
In addition, Dr. Murphy and his staff also use the safest anesthesia available, called isoflurane anesthetic gas, which allows your pet to wake up much quicker and have far less drowsiness than does standard injectable anesthetics.
The Animal & Bird Medical Center also features an Ellman radiosurgical unit that allows for precise micro-surgical procedures on birds as small as parakeets. Fiber optic surgical equipment is used for performing biopsies and exploratory diagnostic procedures. With this high-tech equipment, your pet's incision will be as small as 2.5mm, allowing it to heal very fast and avoid infections.
For orthopedic surgery, we have a complete orthopedic suite with all of the same Hall's handpieces that are used in human hospitals.
With all this advanced technology, we may be able to send your pet home with you on the same day as the surgery!
Your pet faces many health dangers that may profoundly affect him or her - and yet, they might not be noticeable to you until it's too late. The Animal & Bird Medical Center possesses the latest in-house tests for detecting leukemia in cats and heartworm in dogs. While you wait, we can check your pet for these common and deadly diseases in just minutes. If your pet is disease-free, you can breathe a sigh of relief and know your pet is healthy and happy.
