At Kingsland Blvd. Animal Clinic, we believe wellness examinations and education are the foundation of your pet's health care. It is through regular complete and comprehensive examinations and consultation we are able to determine your pet's health care needs, recognize changes in your pet's health, and make recommendations for maintaining your pet's health and vitality. Some of the most common conditions we look for during our examinations include periodontal dental disease, skin problems, heart disease, weight issues and osteoarthritis. We advocate an examination for every pet at least once yearly, and more freqently as your pet ages.
Complete Laboratory Services
Kingsland Blvd. Animal Clinic is equipped with the latest in laboratory equipment to allow rapid diagnosis of your pet's symptoms. We also send out bloodwork, tissue samples, and cultures to an outside laboratory for a more thorough analysis when indicated.
Digital Radiology – or Digital X-rays – help our veterinarians evaluate musculoskeletal, cardiovascular (cardiopulmonary), gastrointestinal, reproductive and urinary systems. Because we offer the most technologically advanced radiographs, we are able to view them immediately to assist in diagnoses. We also have access to board-certified radiologists to interpret your pet's radiographs and make recommendations.
Often your pet's dental health is not as obvious as the amount of dental tartar on his teeth or the presence of infection along the gum line. We offer digital dental radiology to find hidden dental structures, malignant or benign masses, bone loss, and cavities in your pet's mouth. Used in conjunction with regular dental cleanings, dental x-rays can help maintain a healthier oral cavity, contributing to a longer and healthier life.
This non-invasive, state-of-the-art technology uses sound waves to painlessly examine specific internal organs, primarily the heart and abdominal organs. Pregnancy exams are also available. We have a board-certified veterinary radiologist come to our hospital to perform our ultrasound examinations.

Lasers are a minimally invasive alternative to traditional surgery. Lasers replace scalpels in many procedures, and are useful for a wide range of conditions, such as cyst, tumor, and wart removal, and can even be used in declawing. Laser procedures cause less pain, less bleeding and less swelling. They reduce risk of infection and result in less post-operative discomfort.
Laser Therapy (Low-Level)
Low level laser therapy is a non-thermal and non-invasive treatment that involves light energy in specific wavelengths that penetrate tissues and is absorbed by cells. Laser therapy is used to treat acute, sub-acute and chronic conditions of muscle, ligaments, connective tissue, bone, nerve and dermal tissue. Laser therapy works by increasing the speed, quality and strength of tissue repair as well as resolve inflammation and pain. Benefits of laser therapy include: accelerates healing, reduces pain and swelling, increases blood flow and formation of capillaries, increases tensile strength and quality of repair, and increases mobility. ***Conditions typically require 4-5 treatments before significant response.*** The treatment itself is fast and safe, and a single treatment generally takes about three to six minutes. This treatment is not meant to replace other forms of therapy such as NSAIDs (nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs) such as Rimadyl or Deramaxx, but it may reduce the frequency, and it is safe to use in conjunction with other types of therapies.
Acupuncture involves the insertion of needles into body tissue where nerve bundles and blood vessels come together. These collections of nervous and vascular tissue are termed acupuncture points, which course over all aspects of the body’s surface on meridians (energy channels). The goal of acupuncture is to promote the body to heal itself. Acupuncture enhances blood circulation, nervous system stimulation, and the release of anti-inflammatory and pain relieving hormones.
