Services at Oswego Animal Hospital
We take great pride in our state of the art surgical facilities. Routine surgeries are performed on a daily basis at all three clinics, however you may also see our doctors removing stones from Felix the cat's bladder, pulling out a sewing needle from Poochie's stomach, or even removing an infected ear canal from a Cocker Spaniel. In addition, many of our doctors have taken post-graduate courses on advanced orthopedic procedures such as total hip replacements, fracture repairs, knee surgeries, and more.
Our doctors are very knowledgeable and current on all aspects of veterinary medicine. Due to the many hours and large number of cases our doctors see on any given day, they have been exposed to a tremendous amount of challenging medical cases such as renal failure, unregulated diabetes, cardiac and respiratory disease, cancer, and more. Consequently they are all very experienced and kept current on any new treatments or medicine that would offer the best care for your pet.
We are proud of our boarding facilities at all three clinics and welcome visitors. At Oswego Animal Hospital dogs reside in indoor climate-controlled runs with an outside exercise facility.

General Health For Your Pet
General Health When bringing your pet in for a visit, we encourage you to ask questions. The key to a healthy pet is an educated owner.
