Ultrasounds for Pets

Our ultrasound machine produces images that are simply spectacular. The machine, a GE Logiq P3 Vet, allows us to diagnose diseases of the heart and abdominal organs (liver, kidneys, spleen), urinary bladder and gastrointestinal tract (stomach and intestines). We can also use it to obtain urine samples via cystocentesis and to diagnose pregnancy.

The machine produces an amazing image that makes it easier for us to interpret normal versus abnormal. The server also allows us to transmit the studies to a specialist quickly and easily so we can have a cardiologist or radiologist assist us with those interpretations.

The procedure is non-invasive and rarely requires sedation so it is very safe for your pet.

Pet Dental Work

New studies suggest that good dental care can add up to five years to your pet’s life. Dental care is one of the most overlooked areas of pet health. More than 70 percent of cats and 80 percent of dogs show signs of oral disease by the age of three. Dental disease doesn’t affect just the mouth. It can lead to more serious health problems including heart, liver and kidney disease.

Preventative care including frequent brushing, the use of dental rinses in the drinking water and prescription diets can keep your pets teeth healthy. These things should be started at a young age to ensure success.

Our hospital provides total dental care. Under general anesthesia, our veterinary staff scale and polish your pet’s teeth and extract them if necessary.

Our New Referral Program!

We have many clients who refer friends and family to the Hospital for their pet’s veterinary care. As a way of saying thank you we have set up a new referral program.
The program works like this: every time you refer a new client, the new client gets a free exam and $20 towards medical services and you get $20 in credits towards future medical services!
Thank you in advance for your help and support and for trusting us with your pets’ healthcare!

Pet Boarding At Aston Vet

Aston Veterinary Hospital offers boarding to existing clients of our hospital. Your pet’s health is of upmost importance and is monitored daily by our veterinary staff.

We offer both long- and short-term boarding for dogs and cats. Pets that need daily medication are welcome and our trained veterinary staff will administer all medications.

Pet baths and nail trims are also available

For our clients: Please be aware that the Pennsylvania Dog Warden requires that all dogs that board have a current dog license on file. If not they can be subject to a $300 fine from the state. Wardens make routine inspections of our kennel, so it’s important that you make sure your pets’ licenses are up to date, and that a copy of the license is on file with the hospital.

Here is more information on obtaining a license in Delaware County.
