The What’s New!
NEW Dental Radiology!
Sunderland Animal Hospital recently added state of the art dental radiograph equipment to our facility and to the routine of a pet’s dental procedure. Our new Sopix Digital Dental Sensor provides us with the advantage to view dental issues under the gumline such as tooth resorption, abscesses, root fragments, tooth fractures and much more. We are also able to better diagnose disease to know if dental extractions are necessary. A set of dental radiographs includes a series of x-rays showing each and every tooth; and we can print images for our clients to view as well! Dental radiology is a significant benefit to dental health care in pets and we are very pleased to provide this service to our patients.
Please call, email, or ask a staff member more about our dental radiograph equipment or to schedule a dental cleaning for your pet!
Sunderland Animal Hospital has added a therapeutic laser to our health regimen. This healing laser is a revolutionary approach to the management of pain, wound healing and rehabilitation without the use of drugs or surgery. This is the only unit in operation at an animal hospital in Western Massachusetts. The therapy laser system allows your pet to heal faster after surgery or injury, eases pain, improves mobility and provides senior pets with relief from aches and pains.
Our therapeutic laser offers cutting-edge technology that speeds healing and relieves pain through the release of endorphins and by stimulating the injured cells to heal at a faster rate. The therapeutic laser also reduces inflammation, increases blood flow to the area, reduces fibrous tissue formation and improves nerve function. The therapeutic laser can be used for health problems such as arthritis, hip dysplasia, skin problems, ear infections, wounds, degenerative joint disease, insect bites and stings, lacerations, cystitis, burns, gingivitis, and other conditions.
Canine Platelet Enhancement Therapy
The Sunderland Animal Hospital now offers Canine Platelet Enhancement Therapy. If your pet has bad arthritis, tendon/ligament partial tear, or is not responding well to NSAID and orthopedic surgery is not an option or needs long term pain medications, then Platelet Enhancement Therapy is an option for your pet. Canine Platelet Enhancement Therapy uses your pet’s own blood and are capable of differentiating into a variety of tissues types including tendons, ligaments, bone, cartilage and muscle and have been proven to reduce pain and inflammation!

We’re All Over the Web!
Sunderland Animal Hospital offers CareCredit in addition to accepting MasterCard, Visa and Discover. You can be instantly approved in-hospital. Care Credit offers monthly payment options for any procedures, from wellness to emergency surgery.
Twice Yearly Wellness Exams
Consistent with our commitment to your pet’s health, we are recommending a 6-month wellness program for all of our patients. Why? Just because your pet appears healthy on the outside does NOT mean they are healthy on the inside. A physical examination once a year for your pet is the same as you seeing your doctor once every 7 years! Twice-yearly physical examinations help detect significant health issues which can occur in a short period of time, such as cancer, diabetes, arthritis, heart disease and metabolic disease. With a complete physical examination every 6 months and routine blood screens, we can detect, treat and potentially even prevent health problems before they become life-threatening.
