From the specialists to the clinicians and support staff, everyone at Red Bank Veterinary Hospital is working together toward the same goal each day: to provide outstanding patient care. With this collaborative approach to veterinary medicine, the specialists are able to incorporate their various viewpoints while determining treatment plans, which ultimately allows patients to receive the best care possible and medical outcomes. The leadership team at Red Bank Veterinary Hospital fosters support and growth, enabling staff to thrive not only as professionals, but also as people who love animals.
Our dedication to providing the best medical care possible not only applies to our pets and their owners, but also to our family of hospitals. We know that to ensure our doctors can offer the best veterinary care in the industry, we must provide them with the most advanced, state-of-the-art medical technology and equipment available.
I-131: (Radioactive Iodine Therapy): Though there are several other treatment options for feline hyperthyroidism(surgery, Methimazole, diet), I-131 therapy is noninvasive, curative in most cases with a single treatment, and has few documented side effects.
HBOT (Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy): A safe and painless treatment initially used to treat scuba divers suffering from decompression sickness. It has since been proven beneficial not only to humans, but also to pets to promote accelerated healing to damaged body tissue.
Underwater Treadmills: The buoyant properties of water reduce weight placed on fragile bones and joints, which help speed the recovery of a pet’s endurance and strength without adding excess stress. Pets are able to relax during therapy, thus allowing us to customize the speed of the treadmill to their specific needs.
Varian Halycon Linear Accelerator: Provides a high-tech treatment option that targets only a petʼs cancerous cells. A focused radiation beams to treat tumors in the brain, neck, lungs, live, spine, and other parts of the body while limiting unnecessary exposure to radiation healthy cells.
64-slice CT: A noninvasive application of CT technology offering fast scanning capability that was not previously available. It is able to capture images of an organ such as the beating heart (but without the heart movement) or perform whole-body scans in seconds. Providing faster scans also reduces the time spend under anesthesia.
Ultrasound: An ultrasound exam is a way of looking inside a patient’s body (liver, kidneys, and intestines) without having to perform surgery. The machine uses the echoes from the sound waves to form a picture of the inside of the patient. These sound waves are too high in pitch for any of our patients to hear and produce no harmful effects as a diagnostic tool.
