Carl Junction Veterinary Services

Our animal hospital near Carl Junction cares for all traditional pets, such as cats, dogs, birds, rabbits, ferrets, and guinea pigs, as well as more non-traditional pets such as pot-belly pigs, boa constrictors, chameleons, and other amphibians and reptiles.

Services include veterinary wellness exams where your pet will be examined thoroughly and their vaccination and shot record will be examined to make sure they are up to date. A wellness exam is a perfect time to discuss preventive medicine, routine deworming, and possible blood work to catch small problems before they turn into large ones.

Our Carl Junction veterinarian welcomes walk-ins, and we will do our best to see your pet in a timely manner. At Cornerstone Animal Hospital, we are proud to use state-of-the-art equipment to treat and diagnose your pets, including technology like ultrasound – which uses sound waves, the most rapid and painless way to diagnose internal issues.

Our animal hospital is at the forefront of treating animals that might be suffering from joint and tendon issues or arthritis. We treat pets suffering from joint pain or hip displaysia with a regenerative process called stem cell treatment that can replicate cells, release chemicals useful for decreasing inflammation, and send those chemicals into your pet’s body to call regenerative cells towards a pinpointed area.

For more severe cases, orthopedic surgery is an option at our Carl Junction animal hospital. Orthopedic surgeries include arthroscopic procedures, cruciate repairs, and complex bone-fracture repairs. Great care is taken of your pet before, during, and after surgery. Our veterinarian knows that animals experience real pain, and offers a number of choices to manage the pain levels of your pet. Anti-inflammatory non-steroidal drugs and steroids are often used with good results. Laser therapy is another treatment option for our patients. Hot laser therapy can be used to treat deep tissue pain and inflammation. Cold laser therapy is a noninvasive method of using light to increase blood circulation and also for stimulating cell regeneration.
