Medical Services



At Tri-County Veterinary Service, we offer imaging tools such as ultrasound to help diagnose or confirm pregnancy in our patients. By using this technology, we are also able to confirm abdominal disease and take sterile urine samples for testing if your pet has chronic urinary tract disease.





Both of our offices offer a variety of diagnostic testing, including complete CBC and biochemistry profiles, heartworm testing, urinalysis, parasite screening, and thyroid testing. Our equipment allows for results in as little as 15-30 minutes. Additional tests may be sent to a variety of national laboratories if the capability in-house.


Laser Therapy


In 2013, we implemented laser therapy technology into our practice. Our machines stimulate the body’s natural healing factors to improve healing time, increase circulation, and reduce pain and inflammation. All of our surgery patients receive a round of laser therapy after their procedure, and we offer treatment packages for a variety of illnesses and conditions.


Dermatology (Skin)


DermatologyDoes your pet have itching, bare patches, scabbed over spots, or any other skin-related issues? These can be a result of any number of conditions. Allergies, whether seasonal, food-related, or environmental, can be both annoying and detrimental to your pet’s health. Some pets even have flea allergy dermatitis resulting in small red bumps and bare patches from itching so intently. Skin conditions can also result in infections that are best treated by oral antibiotics and topical treatments.

The best plan of action if your pet has a skin issue is to schedule an appointment with one of our doctors to do a full evaluation of symptoms and physical features. We can both diagnose and treat your pet based on our findings at this visit.

Cardiology (Heart)


CardiologyMuch like humans, it is possible for pets to have heart disease and chronic heart failure (CHF). These symptoms typically show themselves in heavy breathing, a hacking cough, loss of appetite, weakness, and trouble with physical activity. With our modern technology, we are able to identify the cause of your pet’s heart-related issues and determine the best treatment plan based on our results. By diagnosing your pet early, we can extend your pet’s life and, if diagnosed early, possibly cure heart disease.



Dog eyeEye injuries, glaucoma, conjunctivitis, and other eye-related conditions are commonly seen among our patients. Through careful examination and testing, we are able to confirm what is causing your pet’s ocular symptoms. If your pet is showing any signs of red, bloody, or cloudy eyes, swelling of the eye area, squinting, discharge, or any other concerning symptoms, please call our office to schedule an appointment. The sooner a diagnosis is found, the sooner a treatment plan can be put in motion.


Endocrinology (Hormones)


EndocrinologyIdentifying endocrine problems as early as possible is important in dogs and cats. These serious, potentially life-threatening conditions are much more manageable when caught early, allowing us to begin proper treatment.

The endocrine system is made up of a group of tissues and glands that release hormones into the bloodstream. These hormones regulate metabolism, growth, development, and reproduction and are dispersed to different areas of the body, depending on the hormone’s function. When a hormonal balance is disturbed (by a tumor or autoimmune disease, for instance), an endocrine disorder can develop. “Hyper” refers to an excess of a hormone, and “hypo” refers to a deficiency in a hormone. Treatment varies depending on the disease.

There are several common endocrine disorders found in dogs and cats:

  • Diabetes mellitus is caused by a deficiency in or resistance to the hormone insulin.
  • Hypothyroidism, which is often diagnosed in dogs, indicates that the animal has low levels of thyroid hormone.
  • Hyperthyroidism, which frequently affects cats, indicates that the animal has high levels of thyroid hormones.
  • Addison’s disease (hypoadrenocorticism) and Cushing’s disease (hyperadrenocorticism) can also affect both species, although Cushing’s disease is rare in cats.

Contact us if your pet begins panting excessively, develops any skin issues (such as hair loss or dull coat), or shows any changes in behavior, energy levels, appetite, weight, water consumption, or urination.
