At Tuxedo Animal Hospital, we believe that when it comes to animal healthcare, prevention is always the best medicine. Routine examinations provide our veterinarians with the opportunity to gather a complete picture of your pet’s health. This not only increases the chances of your pet living longer and remaining healthy, but it also saves you the hassle and expense of having to treat a preventable condition in the future. We recommend that you bring your pet in for a routine wellness visit at least once a year. In these visits we will address any concerns you may have regarding your pet's health. A discussion about your pet's lifestyle will help determine the best strategy for prevention of infectious disease. A yearly dental check-up is also included in this, as prevention and treatment of dental disease will contribute to maximizing your pet's life...and who doesn't want that for their pet?

Rehab and Accupuncture
The discomfort from a surgical procedure or injury unfortunately does not go away quickly, and as a result, they live in a great deal of pain and discomfort. We use various rehabilitation techniques to help our patients recover from injury or surgery, increase mobility and improve flexibility, as well as lose weight and increase fitness level.
We offer a wide range of reproductive services for our clients with an interest in breeding. Dr. Joan Stuart-Hay has been practicing reproductive medicine for many years. Some breeding animals require a tremendous amount of planning and veterinary assistance to produce a litter of puppies and Dr. Stuart Hay is here to help with her experience and expertise. We routinely perform artificial insemination using fresh and chilled semen allowing a breeder to potentially utilize any number of dogs in the country for breeding. We also perform surgical insemination using frozen semen. For the owner of a male dog, we can collect and ship semen using extenders which help keep the sperm alive until arrival at their destination. Sperm evaluation including observations on numbers of sperm and their overall motility can help determine if a male dog is capable of being used for breeding purposes.
Our staff is experienced in Cesarean section which is often needed, both as a planned event or as an emergency procedure.
