Arizona Ave Animal Clinic - Established in 1981 in Chandler, Arizona. Our hospital is a 4 doctor small animal practice in a free standing 7000 sq. ft. facility. We are a well equipped, full service hospital with adjunctive boarding, and grooming services. Our staff provides quality companion animal medicine, surgery, and dentistry. We strive for optimum pet care and utilize in house digital x-ray, ultrasound, endoscopy, digital tonometry, and are proactive in the use of telemedicine to supplement our digital and diagnostic findings. Our in house lab has new chemistry, electrolyte and clotting analyzers which complement our CBC machine and standard bench top tests and lab equipment. A very important part of our practice is dental care. We are equipped with a mobile, high speed, compressed air-driven dental unit as well as 2 new ultrasonic units which allow us to provide a greater range of dental surgical care and treatment.
Our hospital staff is made up of 24 full and part time members. The majority have been with our hospital for several years. All are caring, compassionate and dedicated care givers. Our philosophy and goal as animal caretakers (My Staff & Mine) is to do as much as possible to alleviate suffering and promote healing. Even with limited economic resources, we try to do as much as possible to help - this may mean prescriptions and home nursing techniques and often some discounts on our part but we try not to let a patient leave our hospital without something being done to aid them with their malady.
The hospital provides benefits for full time employees for vacation, uniforms, continuing education, health insurance, selected dues and a 401k retirement plan.
Our three primary veterinarians have many years of experience in both medicine and surgery. The majority of their cases are treated in house. These cases include medical, soft tissue surgery, and orthopedic cases which include TTA cruciate repairs, as well as fractures. We are fortunate to have access to quality emergency care and selected intensive care patients are referred to our local emergency clinic.
Our valley is a wonderful environment for the practice of veterinary medicine. The metro-Phoenix area has a plethora of veterinary specialists in medicine, surgery, oncology, cardiology, dermatology, ophthalmology, neurology, dentistry, exotic, and emergency care. There are two major diagnostic labs in the Phoenix valley which provide veterinary services and fast hospital pickup and turn around times of samples for results of any lab tests that we submit.
Arizona is an intriguing place to live and explore. Mountains to hike with winter ski slopes, lakes with fishing and boating, streams for fly fishing, and of course our desert vistas that change with the seasons. Our 2 major universities, University of Arizona in Tucson which is the home of our state diagnostic lab and Arizona State University are the corner stone institutions for higher learning. Our Phoenix valley has our college sports, as well as professional sports- the Suns basketball, Cardinals football, Diamond Backs baseball, and the Arizona Coyotes hockey. We have endless places to visit and things to do when you're feeling social and lots of space to be alone when you're not - AND no snow tires needed!
