Sick and Hospitalized Pets
We know your pet feels more at ease with you at home, but sometimes patients need services that can only be performed in the hospital. We strive to keep the length of hospital stays as brief as possible.
While in the hospital, your pet will be in our comfortable general ward. If there is concern of contagious disease, he or she will stay in the isolation ward. Cats are kept comfortable and ambulatory dogs are walked several times a day. A veterinary technician is assigned to monitor each patient, to provide special dietary needs, and to give caring attention.
Our Pet Care Pharmacy
You can rely on our pharmacy for all of your pet’s pharmaceutical needs! Our pharmacy carries a large selection of preventative medications and treatments including flea / tick and heartworm preventives, nutritional supplements, prescription diets, dental care products, skin / coat care products, and more.
Website Pet Resource
It is important to fully understand the nature of your pet’s health. Our website (www.eastdetroitvet.com) is designed as a resource to help you make better decisions about your pet’s health and well-being. Our site allows access to our approved online veterinary pharmacy and the veterinary library where you can find information on many topics involving your pet’s care

We Love Our Senior Pets
Dogs over the age of seven and cats over the age of nine are seniors and need special attention. They are at risk for the development of cancer, diabetes and other serious medical conditions. Often these conditions come on gradually, and owners cannot detect the ongoing discomfort they may cause. To keep your pet feeling his best and with you as long as possible, we recommend bi-annual exams along with diagnostic testing to screen for common geriatric disorders.
Progressive Dental Care
The number one health problem diagnosed in cats and dogs over 4 years of age is periodontal disease. Dental disease puts stress on your pet’s immune system and may lead to serious liver, kidney, and heart disease. We provide an extensive dental care program. When dental services are needed, we use the safest anesthesia available with advanced monitoring, ultrasonic scaling, polishing, sealants, composites, and fluoride treatments.
Delivery Comprehensive Veterinary Care
Surgery – We provide all types of soft tissue and most orthopedic surgical services. If your pet requires surgery, our doctors will make sure that you understand all aspects of the surgery and all options available. Every anesthetized patient is monitored with state-of-theart monitors. We take great care to make sure that your beloved pet is treated as if it were our own.
Pain Management – We take pain relief very seriously. Pain management is critical to your pet’s recovery, so we take a proactive approach to ensure that your pet is as comfortable as possible using the most effective medications available.
Ultrasound – We provide ultrasound diagnostics. Ultrasound allows high quality, non- invasive imaging of the abdominal cavity and chest. Many diseases can be accurately diagnosed with ultrasound.
Digital Radiology – Our digital X-ray system quickly produces the highest quality radiographs, allowing our doctors to see fine detail and subtle changes. The time that a pet spends on the X-ray table for imaging is minimal, which means less stress for the patient.
Dermatology – More and more pet owners are seeking veterinary attention for their pets’ skin problems, itching, and allergies. Skin problems are a very common occurrence for our pets, and we offer advanced diagnostics and treatment options for skin disorders and allergies.
Access to Specialist
We maintain a large network of medical specialists in all fields to provide you the latest in cutting edge treatments and technologies. Your veterinarian may refer you to a specialist, veterinarians who have completed advanced studies in specialties such as internal medicine, surgery, and emergency care, if your pet must undergo a procedure that requires more precise knowledge and experience.
