Acupuncture & Osteopathy

Acupuncture is recognized as a compelling and safe method of pain control in pets. Dogs and cats are examined before a few needles are placed at specific points on the body. Acupuncture is most often relaxing for pets, who generally enjoy their treatments. Acupuncture can be used for joint pain from arthritis or other orthopedic issues, for back pain or for pain from soft tissue injuries. Acupuncture can help regulate the immune system and can be used as adjunct treatment for allergies. Certain cases of anxiety can respond to acupuncture as well as some internal conditions. Osteopathy can be very useful for animals presenting with lameness, chronic problems or multiple issues. Osteopathy can also help with issues related to aging, growth or performance.

Acupuncture and osteopathy are offered by Dr Jennifer Jobin, veterinarian, at Hôpital Vétérinaire Mercier (situated at 135 boul. St-Jean Baptiste in Mercier, Québec, J6R 2C1). Dr Jobin is a veterinarian with a passion for integrative medicine and has been practicing acupuncture for over 10 years. She received her acupuncture training with IVAS and is a Certified Veterinary Acupuncturist. She has completed a two-year course in veterinary osteopathy.

Veterinary consultation for your cat or dog in Ste-Catherine

Laser Surgery

We are proud to offer laser surgery as an innovative option for pet owners. In many cases, laser surgery can offer many benefits over traditional surgery: increased precision and comfort, less bleeding, less swelling and improved recovery.

Dental Cleaning & X-Rays

One of the leading causes of discomfort for pets today is dental disease. As part of your pet’s physical examination, the veterinarian will assess his dental health and will recommend the best solution for dental health: from regular brushing and specially-formulated dental diets, to more complete dental cleaning. If a professional dental cleaning is required, our animal health team will determine a treatment plan for your pet's individual situation. Should your pet require a dental cleaning under anaesthesia, digital dental XRays may be required to determine the health of your pet’s teeth in those hard-to-see areas, like below the gumline.

Hospitalisation & Medical Care

Should an unexpected incident occur, our team will be there. Following the consultation, your veterinarian will answer all your questions and collaborate with you to determine the next steps of treatment. If your pet needs to stay a few days in the hospital, our team of technicians will be devoted to their prompt recovery.

Orthopedic Procedures

Orthopedic injuries can encompass a variety of different ailments including sprains, ligament injuries, and fractures. Orthopedic procedures such as cast placement, cruciate knee ligament, patellar, and hip surgeries can be performed on appropriate patients. However, certain injuries may be referred to larger veterinary centers where a board-certified veterinary orthopedic specialist can evaluate your pet’s needs.

Digital X-Rays

Digital radiology allows for a more efficient diagnosis and a faster implementation of necessary treatment. This newest technology enables a more effective evaluation of a patient's internal systems and vital organs, leading to a rapid diagnosis.

On-Site Lab & Veterinary Pharmacy

Your veterinarian will often recommend blood and urine tests to evaluate your pet's general state of health, or to determine the causes of illness. Most of these tests are performed on-site using our state of the art veterinary lab, and the majority of results are available the same day. Our extensive pharmacy contains over 400 high-quality products chosen by our veterinarians so that your pet may begin any necessary treatment at soon as possible.

Cat and Dog Behaviour

Start your relationship with your pet off on the right foot, and improve communication with your four-legged companion. Our team can teach you basic skills to improve your bond with your pet, as well as suggest other related services. We can also assist you when common behavioural issues arise like how to teach your dog to stop jumping up on guests or how to address litterbox issues with your cat.

Class 4 Therapeutic Laser

Usually used for the treatment of arthritic pain, the therapeutic laser has been shown to reduce joint inflammation and pain, as well as to improve joint flexibility and healing, allowing for the possible decrease of anti-inflammatory medications. This innovative therapy involves applying a laser directly to affected areas during several short sessions, as determined by the treatment plan, in a pain-free and relaxing environment. In addition to the treatment of arthritic pain, the therapeutic laser may aid in the treatment of other illnesses such as herniated disk disease and skin wounds.

Euthanasia

It is difficult it is to imagine our lives without the presence of our cherished pet. The decision to let our companion leave us, to escape suffering, can be heart-breaking, and our team can help you and your family through this difficult process. A family room will be made available to accommodate you and your loved-ones, providing a comfortable space to share a quiet moment with your pet. When the time comes, a sedative will be administered to help calm your beloved pet, thereby decreasing his stress and allowing him to live his final moments in peaceful rest. The decision to remain present for the final procedure is at your discretion. Following the procedure, the body will be transferred with all respect for cremation, either as a communal cremation (where the ashes are collected with those of other animals) or as a private cremation (where the ashes of your animal are gathered into an urn of your choosing.)
