Complete Pharmacy & Products

Compassionate care is part of our foundation in veterinary medicine, and pain control is essential in the caring process. Fortunately, pain control in dogs and cats has recently been researched and utilized seriously. Canine and feline pain management can be complex; dogs and cats may not show signs of discomfort openly which hinders diagnosing pain early when it is easiest to treat. With the help of new technology and research, we try our best to respond to the clients’ concerns and our patients’ needs by making pain relief a priority. We are also a member of the International Veterinary Academy of Pain Management. Our Broomfield Animal Clinic pharmacy is stocked with multiple antibiotics, several types of pain medications, thyroid medications, dewormers, preventatives, as well as other needed medications.

We utilize the following types of pain management:

  • Injections
  • Oral Liquids and Pills
  • Fentanyl CRI
  • Acupuncture
  • Therapeutic Laser

We also carry a complete line of Hill’s Prescription Diet foods for cats and dogs. We also have select prescription diets available from Royal Canin. If you need a specific food or size of bag for your pet please call the office before Friday at noon to place an order with us.

Dentistry

Dental care is a very important part of your pet’s overall health. If left untreated, gum disease can lead to serious diseases of the heart, kidneys and liver. Studies have shown that 8 out of 10 dogs and 7 out of 10 cats show signs of gum disease by the age of three. The good news is that most dental diseases can be prevented and controlled. Dogs and cats over the age of one receive dental check-ups during their annual examinations. Good preventive oral care is an important part of protecting your pet’s overall health.

Spay and Neutering

  • Follow the link below to help guide you in your decision regarding spaying and neutering your pet. As always, we are here to help answer any questions you may have.

Baseline Blood Work

  • One of the greatest tools we can have as health care providers for your pet, is blood values taken when they’re healthy. This allows our doctors to have a comparison as your pet ages or when they have a medical issue.

Heartworm Testing and Preventative

  • With so many people and their pets moving into Colorado, we strongly recommend year round heartworm preventative and regular testing. Aspen Arbor Animal Hospital has treated two heartworm positive patients already this year!

Annual Fecal/Intestinal Parasite Testing

  • If you’ve live in Colorado and have a dog, you’ve probably heard of Giardia. There are many other parasites that thrive in the Colorado environment and can cause GI problems for your pet as well. What’s worse, some of them can be transmitted to humans! We recommend yearly parasite checks to make sure your pet is parasite free.
