Our clinic provides services both indoors and outdoors. Our fenced yard provides our clients with a safe and clean environment to offer their pets a potty break or to relax in the garden while waiting for appointments.
We provide our patients with the latest in state-of-the-art medical techniques, medicines, and equipment, annual physical exams and vaccines, dentistry, surgery, holistic care, acupuncture, veterinary orthopedic manipulation (VOM), and we have access to specialists able to provide extended care, including MRI and neurosurgery.
Skin & Allergy Care
We research the latest skin and allergy treatments for pets. Below is an example of a severe skin allergy suffered by a 10-year-old Yellow Lab mix.
This 10-year-old dog had been fed a popular corn-based prescription diet dog food since six weeks old with no ill effects. She suddenly developed a severe skin condition (pictured). We immediately changed her diet to a lamb and rice formula dog food (available at our clinic) and treated the skin topically with a Malaseb™ product (available at our clinic). The dog's skin healed nearly overnight and regained a healthy coat within a few weeks.
Lab & Equipment
Our clinic is equipped with an on-site medical lab, complete with blood chemistry analyzers, blood cell counter, diagnostic x-ray equipment, and EKG machines.
Acupuncture & Holistic Care
(offered only at the Cascade location)
Acupuncture and holistic medicines are offered to our clients who prefer an alternative method of healthcare and treatments for their pets (Ringo, pictured left, receives cold laser therapy for arthritis and pain control).
Our surgical unit handles procedures ranging from minor injuries and afflictions to major chest and bone surgery. We practice the safest and most current anesthesia procedures, utilizing blood pressure monitors and blood oxygen monitors. Laser surgery is recommended in most cases.
Laser technology has proven to be an effective tool in human medicine for over 20 years, and Cascade Animal Clinic is excited to be among the few veterinary hospitals in the Springfield/Eugene area that offer laser surgery.
The benefits of laser surgery are numerous. The laser simultaneously seals nerve endings as it cuts: without a raw severed end, the patient feels less pain post operatively. The patient may also require fewer units of anesthesia during the operation, thereby reducing the risk of complications.
Bleeding is also minimized, because the laser seals small blood vessels as it cuts. Additionally, swelling is reduced, because the laser will not crush, tear, or bruise tissue.
The risk of infection is reduced with laser surgery, because the laser sterilizes the surgery site as it cuts, killing the bacteria that cause infection while removing unhealthy tissue.
Modern research shows that acupoints are located in the areas where there is a high density of free nerve endings, mast cells, small arterioles and lymphatic vessels. Most acupoints are motor points.
A great number of studies indicate that stimulation of acupoints induce release of beta-endorphin, serotonin and other neurotransmitters.
Acupuncture for pain relief is well supported by these scientific studies. Dr. Rosen has offered acupunture for over 15 years.
