Blackhawk Veterinary Hospital (BVH) is a general practice catering to both dogs and cats. We take extreme pride and attention in caring for your four-legged family members.
We are a full-service hospital with services ranging from annual physical exam and vaccines to specialty surgery (TPLO, gastropexy, laparoscopic procedures) performed by board certified surgeons. We have a full in-house laboratory, digital X-rays and ultrasound capability though more advanced studies (heart ultrasound/echocardiogram and complete abdominal ultrasounds) are done by a board certified radiologists that come to our hospital on a mobile basis. We are proud to offer the ULTRA line of vaccines. These vaccines are extensively filtered thereby eliminating any unnecessary components that can sometimes end up in vaccines. These vaccines are therefore less reactive and only require 0.5ml/1/2cc to be administered as opposed to the traditional 1ml/1cc. The ULTRA line of vaccine applies to our distemper/parvo and leptospirosis for the dog and FVRCP and FeLV for the cat. We also offer extended length duration/guarantee of vaccines for our distemper/parvo (4yrs), FVRCP (4yrs), FeLV (2yrs). Our feline rabies is a recombinant vaccine with no adjuvant, and we recently started carrying the new three-year vaccine which most feline owners appreciate.
We proudly partner with local specialty and emergency hospitals in the area for cases that require more advanced diagnostics and treatment including CT/MRI. These specialties include internal medicine, cardiology, oncology, neurology, dermatology, dentistry, and ophthalmology. We do provide boarding but for cats only at this time.
We operate a full-service grooming salon. All our baths include nail trims and anal gland expression. Our experienced groomers are trained in a variety of breed-specific haircuts. We do provide medicated shampoos for pets with delicate skin or skin conditions. Additionally, any medical procedures can be taken care of while your pet is at the salon and our staff will alert you if they notice anything that they believe needs to be checked by a veterinarian. We do require that all pets be current on their rabies vaccines and bordetella vaccines for our canine clients.
Bring in your rescued dog or cat and we will perform a free wellness exam. Call for details.
