Tulo Tuesday! He was actually in yesterday because Alyssa was missing him and needed to get some cuddles in. Like his Momma, Tulo dons wonderful costumes, though he doesn't look super impressed in the 2nd photo! ...

Have you ever wondered about Laser treatment for your pet? Here at Coastland we offer Laser therapy for a wide variety of health issues - here is a little info on our laser:

Class 3b vs Class IV Lasers

The dose of energy administered to your pet with the Laser is measured in Joules (energy per pulse). Both Class 3b and Class 4 lasers are capable of delivering exactly the same number of Joules, however a Class 3b laser will take a slightly longer time to deliver the required number of Joules. This is not necessarily a bad thing. Studies have shown that low doses of a longer duration is more effective for the reduction of inflammatory processes, whereas high power and short time are inhibitory, helping with acute pain, but the actual healing is slower. Class 3B lasers do not produce heat, so they can be used with contact and pressure to the skin. With contact, more light is forced into the tissue. And by using pressure, blood, being the main absorber of the light, is reduced in the area and the light can more easily penetrate the tissue. The pressure will also lead the laser probe closer to the target. Thus, a Class 3B laser can penetrate deeper into tissue than a Class IV laser. At Coastland we are very happy with the results we see with our Respond 3b laser.

Tulo is getting into the Christmas spirit! Happy Tulo Tuesday everyone :) ...

Animal Health Week

The Coastland Veterinary Hospital is owned by Dr. Tutteli Pukarinen. She purchased the hospital in 1999. At that time, we were located next to Woofy's on the Island Highway. In 2011, we opened the doors to our new location on Larwood Road, fulfilling a collective dream of having a new roomy hospital for the 6 veterinarians and our large support staff who provide your pets with exceptional care.

At Coastland we try our best to make you and your pet as comfortable as we can. We try to model our clinic using tips from world renowned animal behaviourist Dr. Sophia Yin. When it comes to interacting with animals in what can, at times, be a stressful environment, we want to be in tune with how the animal is feeling. The pet can then be conditioned to be comfortable for all procedures, including nail trims, bloodwork, and physical exams. If your pet is nervous when visiting new places, or the vet office in particular, please let us know. We will all do our best to be respectful of his/her space, and help to make it an enjoyable visit by using positive reinforcement, and conditioning techniques.
