Preventive medicine is the key to your pet’s long-term health! Routine vaccines and wellness exams are a great start to keeping your pet healthy. Take these opportunities to ask us about nutrition, behavior, and other issues. Other screenings that should be addressed on a regular basis include parasite checks, heartworm tests, oral exams, and bloodwork. Remember: it’s much easier on both you and your pet to prevent disease rather than treat it!
All of us at Lyons Vet Clinic hope we don’t need to see your pet outside of their regular wellness exams, but if your pet does become sick, we are here to meet your needs! Some of the common problems we diagnose and treat are skin, eye, bladder, and ear infections, kitty “colds”, and kennel cough. Whatever your needs are, we will work with you and your pet to restore their health as quickly as possible! To better meet the needs of our clients busy schedules we have extended hours on Mondays and Fridays with no emergency fee cost.
Holistic Medicine: LASER THERAPY & ACUPUNCTURE
Our veterinarians believe in integrating traditional Western medicine with holistic methods of Eastern medicine. Acupuncture: Through modalities of acupuncture and homeopathy we are better able to treat the whole animal.
Laser therapy is a noninvasive treatment designed to reduce pain and inflammation, and to speed healing. This treatment is quickly becoming standard of care in both human and veterinary medicine.

Our staff members administer laser therapy via a hand piece that emits this therapeutic infrared light in a fast, drug-free, and soothing treatment. The light can treat surface problems such as wounds, as well as deeper structures, penetrating through fur, skin, and fat if necessary to reach damaged tissue.
Comfort Care Services
On average, pets age five to seven times faster than people age. This means that serious illnesses can develop in just a few months time. Wellness exams are the cornerstone to keeping your senior pet feeling young and healthy. Simple screening tests such as bloodwork, urinalysis, and blood pressure checks can help detect many diseases before they become major problems. Common health issues for older pets include arthritis, thyroid disease, kidney disease, dental disease, cancer, and heart disease. Our goal for senior pets is not only to extend their life, but to also improve their quality of life.
Our surgery team works hard to provide the best possible care for your pet. We focus on comfort and pain management before, during, and after surgical procedures. Common surgical procedures include spays, neuters, lump removals, laceration repairs, abscess drainage and dental extractions. Complicated surgical cases such as orthopedics are referred to a local surgical center in Longmont.
Pet dental care may be more important than you think! Studies show there is an association between oral health issues and the overall health of your pet.
Call for a FREE oral exam today! The oral health care for your pet has a profound effect on their general health. Periodontal disease may cause bacteria and toxins to enter the bloodstream which can potentially have deleterious effects on internal organs. Prophylactic dental care can prevent this and is extremely important for the overall health of your furry friend. That’s why oral exams are always free at our clinic.
Did you know that 75% of pets have dental disease by three-years of age? Infection and inflammation of the gums and supporting tissues of the teeth are caused by bacteria present in plaque and calculus (tartar). Dental disease begins when plaque and calculus are allowed to build up on the teeth, especially below the gum-line. The first thing you might notice is bad breath, bleeding, and redness of the gums. Without proper care this can lead to loosening and the eventual loss of teeth. Prophylactic treatment is very important. We recommend an oral hygiene program that includes regular check ups and home-care prevention
In-home geriatric and hospice care offers an alternative to extended treatments and hospitalization of your pet. The goal of this care is to make your pet as comfortable as possible and enhance his or her quality of life for as long as possible in the comfort of your own home.
