We recommend yearly wellness exams for our furry friends of all ages. During a wellness exam, we will do a physical examination, parasite screenings, and updating all necessary vaccines.
Using our digital x-ray technology, Normandy Animal Hospital is able to provide our patients with accurate and speedy diagnosis and treatment for a variety of medical issues.
With the advances in digital X-ray technology, we can now manipulate the digital images that we take off a pet’s systems. This has allowed us to detect hairline fractures and orthopedic conditions that were previously not visible. Because the X-rays are digital, we can also almost immediately share the images with specialists who consult with us on difficult cases. We routinely share X-rays with our board-certified surgeon and we are able to burn CDs of the images for our clients to take as part of their own records on their pets’ health.
Digital X-rays are routinely used to diagnose and examine broken bones, obstructions, arthritis, masses, and tumors. We use digital X-rays to also confirm pregnancies or detect ingested objects.
Ultrasonography, or ultrasound, is a diagnostic imaging technique similar to radiography (X-rays) and is usually used in conjunction with radiography and other diagnostic measures. It allows visualization of the deep structures of the body.
Normandy Animal Hospital uses ultrasound for a variety of purposes including examination of the heart, kidneys, liver, gallbladder, bladder, etc. It can also be used to determine pregnancy and to monitor an ongoing pregnancy. Ultrasound can detect fluid, cysts, tumors or abscesses.
During an annual wellness exam, we will check dental health including gums, teeth, and mouth. We can recommend products, provide instruction for at-home dental care, and perform dental cleaning and surgeries.

Microchipping can offer assurance that animal shelters and veterinarians can identify your pet. One in three pets will be lost in their lifetime, however, online one in ten will be found. A microchip helps ensure that you and your pet can be reunited quickly.
Fleas are small, jumping insects that live off of the blood of animals. They can carry dangerous diseases and will often cause allergic dermatitis “severe itching” in pets. Infestations of fleas can cost hundreds to thousands of dollars to get rid of, and, since flea eggs are able to survive a very long time, it is difficult to completely get rid of them. It is much better to prevent fleas than to have to try to eliminate them.
