From preventative diagnosis to emergency treatment – and everything in between – you can call on us for the compassionate service you and your pets need.
At Mountainside Animal Hospital we believe that prevention is truly the best medicine! A yearly wellness exam allows us to prevent, diagnose and treat disease in its early stages, often before you notice any symptoms. Treatment is more effective when it starts earlier, so preventative care helps your pet live a long and healthy life with you. We believe in working with and providing you with enough knowledge to put you in control of the health care decisions for your pet.
Wellness Plans - NOW AVAILABLE
The veterinarians and healthcare team of Mountainside Animal Hospital believe in preventive wellness care. This is accomplished through routine semi-annual comprehensive exams, vaccinations, parasite prevention, urine and blood screening, good oral health and client education encompassing nutrition and behavior.
Annual Wellness Plans offer an affordable way to provide high quality preventive healthcare to your pet. Wellness Plans are NOT insurance. They are designed to provide routine healthcare and diagnostics at a discount. With regular checkups, illnesses and diseases can be detected early, before they become worse and more expensive to treat. By bundling services and spreading the yearly cost over 12 months, you and your pet can concentrate on staying healthy.
While we all want to do what’s best for our pet to ensure they’re in the best possible health, there is always a risk of them becoming injured in an accident, eating something they shouldn’t or requiring ongoing treatment for a serious condition such as cancer or diabetes. Emergency treatment or treating an illness can quickly become very expensive and pet insurance means you will have financial help meeting the bills for conditions and accidents that are covered by your pet insurance policy.
If your pet does require emergency veterinary care, the last thing you want to worry about is whether you can afford the vet bills. With pet insurance, you can rest assured than any hefty veterinary bills will be taken care of and you won’t be left out of pocket.
No-one wants to have to make the heart-breaking decision on what treatment to buy for your pet based on the cost and what you can afford, rather than what is best for your faithful friend. Pet insurance gives you peace of mind that you will be able to afford the best possible care for your best friend if the worst should happen.
Regular dental care is essential for keeping your pet healthy and happy. Dental disease is a common issue among household pets that can lead to serious health problems if left untreated. Periodic dental exams help maintain proper oral hygiene and prevent future complications.
Dental health is a very important part of your pet’s overall health, and dental problems can cause, or be caused by, other health problems. Your pet’s teeth and gums should be checked at least once a year by your veterinarian to check for early signs of a problem and to keep your pet’s mouth healthy. We recommend annual comprehensive oral health assessment and treatment, including dental xrays on all our furry friends.
At Mountainside Animal Hospital, the safety and comfort of your pet is our primary concern.

Laser therapy is a noninvasive treatment designed to reduce pain and inflammation, and to speed healing. This treatment is quickly becoming standard of care in both human and veterinary medicine. Our staff members administer laser therapy via a handpiece that emits this therapeutic infrared light in a fast, drug-free, and soothing treatment. The light can treat surface problems such as wounds, as well as deeper structures, penetrating through fur, skin, and fat if necessary to reach damaged tissue.
The therapeutic infrared light targets the mitochondria in damaged cells and stimulates them to regenerate and stimulates them to return to optimal function. This regenerative process is called photobiomodulation (PBM). PBM does not impact normal cells, but can help damaged cells to recover from injury faster. Laser therapy can be utilized as an adjunct to existing treatments, often reducing or replacing the need for pain medications.
