Here’s a list of our services. Click on any to see more information:

Emergency Care

Emergencies are accepted anytime our clinic is open. If you feel you have an emergency with your pet, please call us or come to the hospital immediately. If possible, it is best to call before coming in so that a team member can advise you on your particular emergency and prepare treatment for your pet. Brentwood Veterinary Center understands that medical emergencies for a beloved pet can, and often do, happen outside of normal business hours. This is why we work to make sure our clients have access to 24/7 emergency care.

24/7 Emergency Care Facilities

General Medicine

Our mission at Brentwood Veterinary Center is to ensure your pet lives a happy and healthy life. We also look forward to watching the human-animal bond between you and your companion develop even further with time and care. Our team specializes in providing care for dogs and cats of any age. Whether you have a brand new puppy or a senior cat, we will be here to keep your pet on the right track and provide customized care.

Wellness visits are essential to your pet’s overall health. This is a full nose-to-tail exam where we screen for parasites, provide necessary vaccinations and develop a personal relationship with your pet. Our team recommends annual wellness exams, with a focus on prevention, for all pets beginning at one year of age. Many diseases or problems can be managed with long-term therapies if they can be diagnosed early on. For our senior pets over the age of eight, we love to see them every six months.
During your time with our doctors and staff, we will have time to address any questions or concerns you may have. We’re honored to provide exceptional veterinary services and care to your family!

Imaging

One of the most useful diagnostic tools in veterinary medicine is ultrasounds. Utilizing sound waves through a particular probe, ultrasounds allow us to capture real-time images and videos of a pet’s organs. It allows our doctors and staff to better understand what is going on within your pet’s body cavities and organs.

Another helpful diagnostic tool in the veterinary medicine field is X-rays. Also known as radiographs, an X-ray helps our team treat and diagnose medical conditions. To facilitate this process, we expose a part of the body to a small ionizing radiation dosage. This allows us to capture pictures of the body’s inside. Our veterinary team can review these images and send them to board-certified radiologists for further review and consultation, if necessary.

Preventative Care

At Brentwood Veterinary Center, our team believes it is much easier to prevent diseases than to treat them. We also believe that every patient is an individual and has a unique set of circumstances that may inform us of their specific preventative care needs.

Our staff considers various factors, including reproductive status, age, lifestyle, breed, health status, the owner’s personal preference, and more. Internal veterinary medicine is not a ‘one size fits all’ practice. Our team is dedicated to providing you and your family with compassionate care that is personally tailored to your pet while developing a baseline for them so we can take note of any changes or abnormalities.

Acupuncture

Acupuncture involves the insertion of very thin needles through the skin at strategic points along pathways called meridians. It is most commonly used to treat pain but is used for other ailments such as metabolic disorders, skin disease, and mental wellbeing. Acupuncture also affects myofascial tissue, a thin saran-like wrapping that surrounds all muscles, muscle fibers, and nerves.

Food Therapy

Something you might not know is that food is medicine for your furry friend. A conscientious diet supports overall health and wellness for your pet.

While our veterinary team can provide you with therapeutic or medical recommendations, we can also help you decide what food/brand is the best fit for your particular pet.

We recommend a home-cooked diet that is balanced and nutritious. However, we know that this is not possible for all pet parents. Taking species, personality, age, and genetic properties into consideration (to name a few), our doctors can help you choose a food/brand that is high-quality and a good fit for you and your pet.

For more information on food therapy or nutrition consultations, please contact us.

Laser Therapy

Here at Brentwood Veterinary Center, we strive to be current on the latest research and innovations that will bring healing and health to your pets.  Laser therapy is a painless, non-invasive form of treatment that stimulates the body’s natural healing and pain control response. It can be used as a standalone therapy or as a complement to other treatment methods. Using a small, handheld device, the doctor applies a low-level laser to the area on question, stimulating normal cellular function. This results in faster wound healing and enhanced pain relief. Best of all, because laser therapy requires no medication or surgery, there are no harmful side effects.

Massage Therapy

Massage therapy focuses on muscle stimulation to release toxins and increase motion range (within the joints). It can also help reduce muscle spasms while improving overall circulation. This can be considered a science as a thorough comprehension of anatomy is required to detect problem areas. Our highly skilled and gentle practitioner can decide what techniques would be best for your pet based on the problem areas found. For more information on massage therapy or therapeutic services, please give us a call.

Bathing

We want your pet to look and feel their very best. Part of keeping your pets healthy is also keeping them clean! No one minds sharing a home with pets when they smell good, so regular baths ensure that your pets are allowed in your home. We offer basic hygiene maintenance services for your pet. During your pet’s appointment, we will bathe your furry friend as well as perform nail trims, anal gland expressions, ear cleanings, hair coat brushing, and drying.

Boarding

Here at Brentwood Veterinary Center, we are proud to offer boarding services to Wilson, NC, and the surrounding areas so that both you and your pet can have an enjoyable, stress-free experience. Our staff is committed to the well-being of all pets staying with us and are prepared to take excellent care of your pet, just like they would their own pets.

Dental Care

Just as it’s important for you to see a dentist regularly, it’s important for dogs and cats as well. Your pet’s oral health is directly connected to their overall health. Signs of dental disease include bad breath, loose, broken, or missing teeth, yellow or brown teeth, red, inflamed or bleeding gums, difficulty or pain when chewing, pawing at the mouth, and excessive drooling. If you notice any of these symptoms, please contact our team, and we’ll be happy to help.

End-of-Life & Palliative Care

Pets are members of our families and having to say goodbye can be one of the hardest things a loving family has to do.

Should you experience a time when you are making the difficult decisions about end-of-life care for your pet, please know that the veterinarians and staff of Brentwood Veterinary Center are here to help you through this process. Euthanasia methods are designed to cause minimal pain and distress. Talk to a veterinarian or staff member at Brentwood Veterinary Center about pet euthanasia long before it becomes an issue. Find out about your options, make some key decisions ahead of time, and ask us to add this information to your pet’s record.

All of us at Brentwood Veterinary Center will do our best to help you prepare for these important issues with the compassion and sensitivity they require.

We offer at-home euthanasia for established clients. We also offer cremation services.

Health Certificates

While we love to take our pets with us everywhere we go, traveling with your pet requires some advanced planning. When planning a trip or travel out of state or internationally, it is best to consult our veterinary team regarding your plans.

A domestic health certificate is a requirement for some travel between states. When traveling to Hawaii or somewhere outside of the United States, your pet will need an international health certificate. Give us a call to get more information or ask any questions you may have.

Please check out the AVMA’s (American Veterinarian Medical Association) guidelines for additional information on traveling with pets.

Microchipping

Each year, thousands of pets go missing, and many don’t make it back home. Many pets (especially indoor pets) don’t wear collars or tags. Even if your pet wears a collar and identification tag, collars can break off, and tags can become damaged and unreadable, so these forms of identification may not be enough to ensure your pet’s safe return.

Your pet needs a form of identification that is reliable and can’t get lost, stolen, or damaged. A microchip is a safe, simple form of identification that can significantly increase the chance that your pet will return safely. We encourage all pet owners to consider this simple, safe way to prevent the heartache of losing a pet.

Pharmacy

The team here at Brentwood Veterinary Center strives to make your experience as efficient and enjoyable as possible. We’re proud to offer our client an on-site pharmacy that has all types of medications, flea/tick preventatives, and more. If you require medication or a product that we do not have, we will help you find it and order it for you.

Surgery

When your pet needs surgical help, the team at Brentwood Veterinary Center is available to assist you. Your veterinarian will work closely with you to ensure every step is taken to provide your pet with the very best level of care. After a full examination and any necessary diagnostics, your pet will be given the attention of the most careful and capable hands. We will provide the best care to your pet throughout the surgery, as well as pre and post-operation.
