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! ...

Christmas shenanigans with Danielle handing out yummy treats in full festive regalia :) ...

Say hello to some of our recent visitors :) Bella is a 5 yr old lab, the white curly coated cutie is Madison who is a 10 yr old Maltipoo, and Hannah, the 11 yr old Golden Doodle ♥ ...

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 :) ...

In-House Laboratory

Our in-house laboratory is a vital part of your pet's care.

The ability to obtain lab results the same day is especially valuable for sick animals or those undergoing an unplanned anesthetic or surgery.  Our in-house lab allows us to perform many types of testing that can aid in the diagnosis and treatment of your pet.  Blood work is a routine part of a diagnostic work up, and helps the veterinarian provide your animal with the best treatment options and care.  We have a complete in house blood analyzer laboratory, allowing us to run blood samples and obtain results in less than an hour.  We can also perform routine urine and fecal testing in clinic.  Our Technicians are important members of the team, as they collect the samples  and perform these diagnostic tests for our veterinarians while your pet is being treated on an outpatient or hospitalized basis.  if necessary, we also courier medical samples to veterinary reference labs for more specialized tests.

Wellness testing can help catch many conditions early before they become serious illnesses.  Be sure to ask your veterinarian about which tests your pet may need during your pet's next wellness exam. 

 

 

We are able to perform many tests in hospital as they are needed for your pet's care, including

-Blood Chemistries and Completer Blood Counts

-Urine tests and Fecal examinations (testing for the presence of hookworms, whipworms, tapeworms and roundworms).

-Skin scrapes

-Snap tests for viruses (Parvovirus, Feline Leukemia Virus, and Feline Immunodeficiency Virus) and Pancreatitis

-Ear, Skin and Mass cytology

 

We also utilize an outside veterinary reference laboratory in Langley for specialized bloodwork panels, urine and skin cultures such as:

-Bacterial and fungal cultures

-Comprehensive thyroid panels

-Tick panels

-Vaccine titers

-Cytology and histopathology
