We look forward to taking care of your new puppy or kitten, to watch them grow, to keep them healthy, and to help heal them as needed. We would also proudly care for your older pet too! Our staff is compassionate and caring, with a genuine love for animals.
When you enter the hospital, the dog waiting area is on the right side (in front of the dog statue). Cat side is on the left.
Surgical Treatment Area
We have four exam rooms and two surgical suites.
From hip dysplasia to otitis. From infected wounds to soft tissue trauma. From post-dental surgery to Degenerative Joint Disease (DJD).
Laser Therapy improves healing and provides pain relief. No shaving or sedation is needed. Therapy packages of 6 treatments cost $163.
Eldersburg Veterinary Hospital is one of the few hospitals in Carroll County that includes Laser Therapy after spaying and neutering, to promote faster healing and reduce scarring.

Large boarding cages
We require the Bordetella (kennel cough) vaccine for boarding dogs. Starting October of 2017, we will be requiring the Flu vaccine to receive dogs for boarding overnight. Rabies and distemper vaccines must also be up to date to board dogs and cats. It's our way of protecting YOUR precious pet from infections from other boarding pets. Please call us for more information or to make a reservation,
Our busiest days are Mondays, Thursdays and Saturdays. We have three phone lines. If the phone rings busy, call again in about 5 or 10 seconds. We look forward to serving you! Please provide your first and last name, the name of your pet, the name of the medication or the treated condition. Your annual wellness exam must be up to date to refill medications for continuing, chronic conditions (such as thyroid meds).

Read the below excerpt from: http://pets.webmd.com/dogs/features/dentistry-dogs
Plaque, which is made of saliva, sloughed mouth cells, food, and other things, forms on teeth just minutes after eating. If left untreated, the plaque builds up, leading to gum inflammation that can then cause tissue decay. The inflammation then progresses deep enough to destroy bone, which finally leads to tooth loss, the ultimate end of periodontal disease. Unfortunately, periodontal disease (also called gum disease), occurs five times as often in pets as it does in people. As a matter of fact, more than 80% of dogs over 3 years old have periodontal disease. Yet, while gum disease is usually the biggest dental problem a dog faces, it's not the only one. Some dogs, especially larger breeds, are also prone to broken or fractured teeth.
