The What’s New!


Regenerative Medicine Platelet Therapy

The Sunderland Animal Hospital now offers Regenerative Medicine Platelet Therapy for your pets! If your pet has bad arthritis, tendon/ligament partial tear, or is not responding well to NSAID medications and orthopedic surgery is not preferable, then Platelet Therapy is an option for your pet. Regenerative Medicine Platelet Therapy uses your pet’s own blood and is capable of differentiating into a variety of tissue types including tendons, ligaments, bone, cartilage and muscle, to help regenerate damaged tissues, reduce pain, and decrease inflammation! Click here for more information from Companion Regenerative Therapies.

Companion Therapeutic Laser

Sunderland Animal Hospital has the new CTX Therapeutic laser to aid in 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.

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.
