The doctors and staff at Somerset Veterinary Hospital are dedicated to providing the best care possible for your pet. We offer a wide variety of services to fulfill this mission.
The physical examination by the veterinarian is the most important of all the services we offer. It is the first step in evaluating the health of your pet. If problems are detected, the physical exam guides us in determining the appropriate diagnostic tests and/or treatments that are necessary to keep your pet as healthy as possible.
Preventative Care and Vaccinations
There are many diseases in our companion animals that are able to be prevented. We offer canine and feline vaccinations tailored to your pet's individual needs, heartworm and intestinal parasite preventatives, flea and tick control, and veterinary diets, all tailored to help prevent many diseases and keep your pet healthy.
Our hospital is able to perform a variety of laboratory services in-house including bloodwork, urinalysis, urine cultures, fecal examinations, cytology, and glaucoma screening. We also have several outside reference laboratories that we are able to send bloodwork.
Somerset Veterinary Hospital has a fully stocked pharmacy so we are able to send you home with any medications your pet may need. We also have an on-line store, which can be accessed through this website.
Surgery & Anesthesia Monitoring
We are able to perform a wide variety of soft tissue and orthopedic surgeries at our hospital. All pets are carefully monitored with anesthesia monitoring equipment and well-trained throughout surgery to ensure your pet remains stable and to correct any problems that may arise during anesthesia and the surgical procedure.
Dental health is a very important aspect of your pet's heath. We offer a variety of dental services, including scaling/polishing procedures, digital dental x-rays, and dental extractions. Visit the dental health links on our website for more information on these services.
Our hospital is equipped to take digital x-rays, and the veterinarians are able to interpret those x-ray. You will not have to take your pet to another hospital in the event x-rays are needed. We also have the ability to send x-rays to specialists when needed.

If your pet requires a more extensive ultrasound to be performed, we maintain a close relationship with several radiologists at referral hospitals in the area that we can refer you to.
Doppler Blood Pressure
Your pet's blood pressure, and thus health, can be affected by many different diseases, and by procedures such as anesthesia and surgery. Our doppler blood pressure machine allows us to measure your pet's blood pressure if needed.
An important part of the management or treatment of many diseases is feeding a diet that is scientifically formulated to meet the changes in nutritional requirements your pet needs because of the disease process. Somerset Veterinary Hospital is stocked with these prescription diets. We also have most diets available through our on-line store which can be accessed through this website. We participate in Purina Vet Direct and Hills to Home programs that will ship foods directly to your home.
We maintain a close relationship with several referral hospitals in the area in the event your pet needs advanced diagnostics and/or treatment that our hospital is not able to provide.
