Procedures done on dogs and cats are challenging for a variety of reasons, one being that they often don’t want to be still while doctors and staff are trying to help the animal. They also have a level of stress that comes from being in an unfamiliar environment. Because of this, the use of anesthesia is a beneficial way to give pets the care they need.
The use of anesthesia is safe, and we are expertly trained in administering it and caring for patients that are under. If you have any concerns about anesthesia for your pet, please call us today at (330) 332-1880. We would be happy to speak with you and assuage any fears you may have.
We offer solutions for a variety of behavioral issues that pet owners are faced with. Behavioral problems can be challenging and frustrating for both pets and pet owners, so it is our goal to work with you towards a solution.
There are many behaviors that can be negative or destructive, and many pet owners feel helpless in bringing peace to their home. We want you to know that we are here to help, and that undesirable behaviors can be corrected.
To learn more about how we can help your pet with behavioral counseling, please contact us today at (330) 332-1880.
Your pet’s heart is a muscle that has to work all day, every day. There are many diseases and abnormalities that can cause the heart to not pump as well as it should, which means that heart diseases can affect your pet all day, every day, dramatically affecting your pet’s quality of life. We can perform ECGs as well as Blood Pressures, and send these off to a board certified cardiology specialist (same as a human cardiologist) for analysis. We refer complex cardiology patients out to a referral center.
An echocardiogram is an ultrasound of the heart, which allows your pet’s veterinarian to measure how thick the heart’s muscular walls are, how well the heart contracts, and how well the valves are working. Your pet’s veterinarian can also prescribe the appropriate medications after a successful diagnosis, to keep your pet’s heart as healthy as possible. Some symptoms of diseases of the heart may include exercise intolerance, lethargy, collapse, and difficulty breathing. It is important for your pet to see the veterinarian if your pet has any of these symptoms.
For complex Internal Medicine, Oncology, Ophthalmology and Neurology cases, we offer in-hospital referrals to several referral centers in Ohio, Pennsylvania, and Ohio State Veterinary College that have specialists on staff to help us with the diagnosis along with treatment of more complicated cases.
We are very proud to offer in-house diagnostic tools at Adamson Veterinary Services. This helps us to diagnose your pets faster so they can start feeling better sooner. We have state-of-the-art diagnostic tools ready whenever your pets may need them. Our goal is to continue learning so we can offer the very highest level of veterinary care to our patients.
Our in-house diagnostic tools include radiology and a laboratory, among other helpful tools. We will work hard to figure out exactly what is wrong with your pets as quickly as possible.
We understand that the quicker we can diagnose your pets, the quicker they will start to feel better. We are glad we can offer these tests in our hospital so we can get your pet back to normal quickly. If you have any questions about our diagnostic tools, feel free to contact us today at (330) 332-1880.
Dietary counseling is an important part of our jobs here at Adamson Veterinary Services. We are very excited to offer support to our clients in Salem, OH and our surrounding communities.
Nutrition is an important part of pets’ lives. As they age, their nutritional needs change. That is why there are so many different formulas, including puppy, adult, and senior. There are also diets made for pets who have certain diseases and conditions. We recommend discussing nutrition with our friendly staff at every visit.
Obesity is a very common problem because owners like to overfeed their pets. Many also feed treats as a way to show their pets how much they love them. However, obese animals can have many health problems, so it is important to get your pets on a diet and exercise program. The sooner you start, the sooner you can get your pets on a healthier path.
Feel free to contact us today at (330) 332-1880, if you are concerned about your pets’ diet, weight, or lifestyle. We would be happy to assist you in any way we can.
Here at Adamson Veterinary Services, we are pleased to offer electrocardiography to our patients. Heart disease is quite common in pets, so having the ability to monitor it is becoming more necessary.
For this reason, we are proud to be able to offer electrocardiograms (ECG or EKG) to our patients. It is a very non-invasive test since we only have to place clips on certain locations on a pet’s body, yet we can gain so much information from it.
An ECG is a record of the electrical activity of the heart. We can evaluate heart rhythm of your pets. We also look for any arrhythmias or other abnormalities. An ECG/EKG can also be used to look for heart enlargement, which is a very common sign of heart disease. ECGs are used not only to diagnose heart disease but also to monitor the progress of patients diagnosed with it.
We provide ECG services on-site as well as consultations with cardiology specialists. If you have any questions about heart disease or electrocardiography, feel free to contact us today at (330) 332-1880.

Having a laboratory in our hospital allows us to perform many diagnostic tests quickly and efficiently. We can offer not only simple diagnostic tests but also some more complex ones, too!
Having a laboratory in our hospital also allows us to diagnose your pets faster. Then we can start to treat your pets so they can start feeling better sooner. We can have the results of some tests in just a few minutes instead of having to wait a day or longer to get the results from another laboratory.
It is our goal to help your sick pets feel better as soon as we possibly can. With our in-house laboratory, we will have answers quicker than you can imagine.
We now refer orthopedic patients out to a referral center.
Orthopedic surgeries are more complex than routine surgeries. For this reason, we want you to fully understand the surgery before you decide to proceed. We will take the best care of your pets during their stay at the hospital. We also are here for you and your pets during their post-op care. We will want to routinely examine your pets to make sure they are healing the way we expect.
Since we are all animal owners, we know how hard having surgery done on your pets can be, so we are here to help. We want you to understand the procedure and what you should expect. We are here to answer your questions before, during, and after surgery. We will keep you informed while your pets are staying with us, and we are only a phone call away once you go home!
The idea of your pet being infested with parasites is a disturbing thought, but it’s also a medical issue that can have serious consequences if not properly dealt with or prevented. Parasites pose a variety of health issues for our pets, who can be very susceptible to certain parasites depending on age, region, and other factors.
At Adamson Veterinary Services, we emphasize the importance of preventing parasites. Through preventative measures, you can successfully protect your pet. But pets that are not protected often develop parasites, leading to serious problems for them and their owners.
The cost of prevention is minimal compared to the cost of treatment, which can be expensive and stressful on your pet. Parasites like heartworm can even be fatal, so preventing parasites is of the utmost importance.
Our doctors perform annual and semi-annual exams checking the health of your pet. We follow the AVMA, AAHA, and AAFP recommendations on vaccines to make sure your pet is properly vaccinated. We also recommend annual heartworm tests for dogs and feline aids/leukemia/heartworm tests for all outdoor cats. Annual deworming and treatment for fleas, ticks and mites is also available for your pets. The annual (or semi-annual) visit should include the exam, vaccines, heartworm tests for dogs, and the combo test for outdoor cats, fecal exam for intestinal parasites, urinalysis and blood tests to test organ function. We recommend all dogs be on heartworm prevention year round and all cats to be on flea and heartworm prevention from early Spring to early Winter. The CDC (Center for Disease Control) recommends all outside pets be dewormed every 3 – 4 months.
At Adamson Veterinary Services in Salem, OH, we are proud to be on the cutting edge of medical technology. Radiology is a technique and diagnostic tool that we use to look inside the body in a completely non-invasive way. X-rays allow us to create images of all the body’s organs.
In other words, the use of radiology gives us a view of the internal organs in your pet’s body that we otherwise could not see. It’s an important diagnostic tool that helps veterinarians detect and prevent illness.
The use of radiology is safe and our entire staff is highly trained. It is our goal to provide your pet with the highest level of medical care possible, and this is just one of the many ways we achieve that.
Our on-site X-ray equipment provides high quality radiographs to aid in the quick diagnosis of many disorders. We are able to perform routine ultrasounds and limited endoscopic procedures. Ultrasounds to determine viability of puppies and kittens are available along with an ultrasound picture.
Regular examinations are important for your pets’ overall health and wellbeing. When your pets have regular checkups, our veterinarians are able to look them over while also learning about you and your pets.
While discussing your pets’ care with our staff, we might have a concern. You may also have something you would like to discuss with our veterinarians while you are here at the hospital.
Here at Adamson Veterinary Services, our veterinarians thoroughly examine every pet that comes in for a regular annual examination. Coming in regularly also ensures your pets get the vaccinations along with any other preventative care, such as heartworm prevention or deworming, they need.
Our goal during the examination is to find any potential problems before they become serious ones.
We want nothing but the best for our patients and their owners. To do that, we strive to give them the highest quality of care especially when it comes to surgery.
Our state-of-the-art surgical suite provides for the performance of a wide variety of surgical procedures.Dr. Brooks, Dr. Boyce and Dr. Daniel both perform routine spays, neuters, growth and tumor removals, abdominal exploratory surgeries, mastectomies, urinary bladder surgery, and more. Dr. David Smith comes in to perform ear trims as needed for our established clients.
We know that surgery is stressful for owners, too. We will take good care of your pets the entire time they stay with us. We will also do our best to keep you informed of their progress throughout their stay.
We have the ability to provide a variety of therapeutic services from out-patient services to in-patient services. All of our patients are provided with their own doctor and nurse to ensure complete care.
