On-line Pharmacy

Central Animal Hospital offers an on-line pharmacy which allows our clients to order prescription medications for home delivery. Our clients can save time, gas and money by ordering refills from our website’s online pharmacy. The difference between purchasing prescription drugs on our website and purchasing medications on internet pharmacies is that we only sell valid, unaltered products along with a full manufacturer warrranty. This is something that cannot be guaranteed by non-veterinary websites. Visit Our Pharmacy

X-Rays & Ultrasound

We offer both dental radiographs and general full body digital radiographs. Our ultrasound unit utilizes color doppler and pulse wave doppler, which are forms of ultrasound that allows for visualization of blood flow through the heart and vessels. Once the images are captured on site, they are immediately forwarded via the internet to any veterinary school or specialist anywhere in the world for review. Interpretation and results are electronically transmitted back to our hospital within one day. Consequently, our clients now have the convenience of having ultrasound imaging, diagnostic review and determination of long- or short-term treatment options performed in one location without having to leave town or schedule additional appointments with a specialist elsewhere.

In-house Pharmacy

Central Animal Hospital houses an on-site pharmacy to allow our clients to pick up necessary medications without having to make a second trip to the local drug store to fill prescriptions.
