Building for the future of veterinary medicine
Garden State Veterinary Specialists, a resident of Tinton Falls for nearly 30 years, has continually expanded the variety of specialty veterinary services it offers to the community. The increased demand for emergency care and specialist services led GSVS to consider moving to a larger facility. After an extensive search throughout Monmouth County, GSVS secured 51,000 square feet of single-story space for the hospital. The new location in Eatontown will allow specialists to provide patients with exceptional specialty care in a brand new, fully equipped facility. The expanded space (all on one floor) will include all major veterinary specialties as well as individual suites for dentistry, rehabilitation, minimally invasive surgery and radiation therapy.
The provision of full-time specialist dental care will be an important component of the veterinary services offered at the new hospital. Dental disease is often described as a silent disease because it can progress rapidly without the patient showing any obvious clinical signs. Patients with dental disease may continue to eat normally and may not let you know they are in pain. Oral diseases are unfortunately common. In fact, periodontal disease (gum disease) is the most common clinical condition in pets. It causes bad breath, mouth pain, behavioral changes such as loss of appetite, and can affect distant organs such as the kidneys, liver, and heart.
Physiotherapy and rehabilitation have helped many people recover from injuries and surgery. Today, these modalities are increasingly used in animals to help restore function, mobility and quality of life. Although most commonly used in dogs, physical rehabilitation can be part of a treatment protocol for almost any animal species. Physical rehabilitation can provide pets with a variety of benefits including reduced pain, increased range of motion, improved balance and coordination, restoration of normal movement, restoration of normal muscle mass , increased muscle strength and even weight loss in obese patients.
Over the past few years, minimally invasive surgery has become increasingly popular with veterinarians and their clients. As the human-animal bond continues to grow, dog and cat owners are increasingly aware of and concerned about the pain their pets experience following surgical procedures. Clients also associate their own medical experiences with those of their pets and frequently request less invasive and less painful procedures. Minimally invasive procedures offer both diagnostic and therapeutic value, allowing veterinarians to make difficult diagnoses and perform therapeutic procedures at the same time. As in humans, veterinary surgery can be performed through several small incisions instead of a single large incision. The benefit for your pet is less pain and faster recovery. Minimally invasive techniques can be used in arthroscopic, laparoscopic, and thoracoscopic procedures.
GSVS is excited about this next step in the growth of its hospital within the greater Monmouth County community. Their mission is always to bring quality veterinary medicine to our patients and their families.
