Surgical Services (Elective & Routine)
Union Veterinary Clinic provides a variety of routine and elective surgical services. Surgeries are performed Monday, Wednesday and Thursday by Drs. Gross, Kats, and Lehmann.
Pre-Anesthetic Blood Testing
This is done to make sure that your pet’s internal organs such as the kidneys and liver are functioning correctly. All patients 7 years and older require this testing.
We utilize the safest available anesthetics to provide that extra margin of safety, especially for our older or high risk patients. Using the most modern equipment, the patient’s vital signs are monitored during all anesthetic procedures by the veterinarian and surgical technician.
Our on-site, modern X-ray equipment provides high quality radiographs to aid in the diagnosis of many disorders.
Therapeutic Laser Treatments *New Service*
We have new a-state-of-the-art K Laser!!! Cold fusion laser treatment can be used to treat sore joints on any part of the body, reduce inflammation of skin or ear infections and surgical scars, and accelerate the healing time of open wounds. We offer this service as individual sessions or packages of 3 or 6 treatments.
Our in-house laboratory facilities provide for serum chemistry, hematology, serology, urinalysis and parasite testing. We also utilize commercial veterinary laboratories for specialized diagnostics and consultations.

International Health Certificates
If you are traveling with your pet internationally, you will need to research the necessary requirements. It can take several months and multiple visits to a veterinarian to complete this process.
At Union Veterinary Clinic, Drs. Gross, Lehmann, and Kats are accredited veterinarians who can issue this type of travel certificate. Please give yourself enough time to complete this process. Many flights require this examination be given within 10 days of your flight, and different countries may have differing special requirements. More information is available at the USDA website: http://www.aphis.usda.gov/regulations/vs/iregs/animals/
Union Veterinary Clinic has a fully stocked pharmacy of prescription and over-the-counter medications. Please give our staff 24 hours when requesting a refill. We will do our best to make your prescription available as soon as needed. Please allow extra time to order special medications.
Untreated or ineffectively treated dental disease can rob your pet of years of quality life. That’s why it is so important that your pet receives regular, high quality dental care.
