Acupuncture is when a set of needles is inserted into parts of the animal to promote healing. Each acupuncture point has a specific goal. This technique has been used in various veterinary practices for thousands of years and will treat any ailment. Although acupuncture will not cure every condition, it will work extremely well when there is an issue.
Small dogs and large dogs will actually respond to acupuncture differently. Small dogs will typically come and receive acupuncture because of musculoskeletal problems such as arthritis, intervertebral disk disease, or traumatic nerve injury. They also come in for skin problems such as lick granulomas and allergic dermatitis. Acupuncture can assist in healing all of these problems.
Dental care is vital to the overall health of any pet. Dental disease can lead to health issues with the heart, liver, and kidneys and has the potential to seep into your pet’s bloodstream. In fact, 80 percent of dogs and 70 percent of cats over three years of age suffer from some form of dental disease, making it the most common pet health issue among our pet population.
We are proud to announce we are now offering laser therapy, an innovative new way to treat pain and inflammation in pets. Laser therapy uses specific wavelengths of light to create therapeutic effects such as improved healing time, pain reduction, increased circulation and decreased swelling. Multiple studies have shown laser therapy can help with a variety of problems including arthritis, joint pain, ligament sprains, muscle strains, dog/cat bites, feline acne/asthma, hotspots, post trauma/surgery pain, hip dysplasia, lick granulomas and snake/bug bites.
We have state-of-the-art diagnostic tools that allow our staff to diagnose your pets’ condition or illness better. It is our commitment to stay on the cutting edge of diagnostic technology.
Having these advanced diagnostic tools allows us to examine specific areas more carefully and provide a quicker and more accurate diagnosis. We use many tools such as radiology, lab tests, and various other equipment and tests.
We offer a variety of solutions and treatments for your pets’ orthopedic issues. We understand that orthopedic problems can be a big challenge for both pets and pet owners so we are dedicated to working with you and communicating with you throughout the process.
We believe the best way to promote overall health is through preventative care. Regular checkups allow us to establish a baseline in your pets’ health and make us aware of any changes that may indicate future problems.
We highly recommend bringing your pet in for regular exams. Often health problems that go undetected can become more severe issues when left untreated, so checkups are important even when your pet appears healthy.
Puppy and Kitten Care
Getting a new puppy or kitten is very exciting. You have a lot to look forward to. The great companionship that a good pet can bring is very rewarding. However, puppies and kittens come with a lot of responsibility and work. Here at Imperial Highway Animal Clinic, we are here to help you with your new addition.
First, you should always bring your new puppy or kitten in for a full nose-to-tail examination to make sure that you have a healthy new animal. You also want to get him or her familiar with our veterinary hospital.
Ultrasounding is a quick and painless procedure. It uses sound waves to allow us to see inside your pets, without using the harmful radiation produced when we take x-rays.
We are pleased to be able to offer ultrasounds, along with all of our other diagnostic tools, to help your sick pets start to feel better soon. The quicker we can find the problem, the sooner your pets will be back to their normal selves.
At Imperial Highway Animal Clinic in Yorba Linda, CA , we believe that regular checkups and wellness exams are critical to your pets’ well-being. These wellness exams give us a chance to evaluate the overall health of your pet while also giving us a baseline for their unique bodies and tendencies.
Not only do these exams keep us up-to-date with your pets’ health, but they also allow us to detect potential problems before they become serious. This thorough checkup gives us vital information to help keep your pet healthy!
Laparoscopic procedures are minimally invasive and generally provide quicker healing and recovery time. Laparoscopy also reduces bleeding and swelling for patients, making the recovery process easier.
Laparoscopic procedures are easier on your pet, meaning they will be back to their normal selves more quickly. It is our goal to provide the highest standard of veterinary medicine, and laparoscopy is one way we achieve that goal. Using state of the art medical equipment, our doctors are highly trained in performing laparoscopic procedures.
If you have any questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to contact us today.
MRI and CT Scans are tools that use x-rays to produce images of cross-sections or “slices” of the body. These state of the art diagnostic tests allow veterinarians to get a different view of an animal’s body that otherwise would not be possible.
We are proud to have MRI and CT Scan capability here at Imperial Highway Animal Clinic, allowing us to bring state-of-the-art veterinary medicine to you. MRI and CT Scans are some of the fastest and most effective ways to create images of the inside of the body and are particularly useful for animals dealing with problems in their abdominal cavity.

Just like humans, animals can experience many health benefits from chiropractics. The alignment of the spine is tied to numerous health issues, many of which can be resolved through chiropractic care.
Animals can benefit greatly from spinal adjustments which reduce pain or discomfort associated with certain medical conditions. We are highly trained and knowledgeable here at Imperial Highway Animal Clinic when it comes to chiropractic care, so you can rest assured your animal is in good hands.

Arthroscopy (elbow dysplasia)
Arthroscopy is the examination of a joint using endoscopy. Arthroscopic surgery is quite common in human medicine and is becoming more common in veterinary medicine as well. It is a minimally invasive surgery on to repair or stabilize joints and ligaments. This technique can be used as a tool to diagnose problems after other noninvasive test results are inconclusive. Arthroscopy allows us to more thoroughly examine the joints so we can accurately diagnose and treat the problem. Your pet will experience less pain and recover faster than a traditional surgery procedure.
arthroscopic surgery is more limited to practice on cats and small dogs, as their joint spaces are often too small to accommodate the required equipment. However, we will evaluate and diagnose all pets to give you the best approach in making them happy and healthy again.
Endoscopy requires skill which can only come through an abundance of practice and a qualified veterinarian. Call us today and we can set up a consultation to review the symptoms, diagnose any joint problems, and formulate a plan to success for your pet.
