It might be surprising that out of a team of surgery, cardiology, neurology, and dentistry specialists, not one has ever performed a procedure on a person. That’s because these board-certified medical professionals prefer their patients to be covered in fur or feathers. Dr. David Menard leads Millhopper Veterinary Medical Center’s team of vets and vet techs in medical services that range from standard vaccination and sterilization procedures to more specialized treatments such as cancer therapy and acupuncture consultations. To perform each treatment as effectively as possible, the veterinarians call on a high-tech trove of medical technology that includes digital radiography equipment, camera-mounted endoscopes, and laser surgery devices. Meanwhile, an onsite pharmacy vends prescribed medications for all animal ailments, including tennis ball jaw. For pet parents going out of town, the center’s boarding resort houses cats, dogs, birds, and exotic pets in their own separate, climate-controlled facilities.
