Many of the same health problems that affect us, including hearing loss, also affect our pets. Fortunately, most pets adapt very well to the disability with a little help from their owners.View Article

Indian Creek was opened on April 30, 1989 by Drs. Schweinfurth and White, a husband and wife team of veterinarians as a full service small animal veterinary facility. Our emphasis remains modern, up to date equipment and techniques with quality medicine a priority but the emotional needs of our clients and pets always in mind.
The hospital itself is a stucco and stone structure with an entry greenhouse and lots of windows for natural lighting. The large green house end to our treatment area provides an open feel and the large windows from the exam rooms to the treatment area provide confidence to our clients when their friends need to go "to the back" for a procedure. With the abundance of lighting, the many plants throughout the building provide a natural feel.
A new addition added in 2004-5 almost doubled our working area and expanded our lobby. Providing runs for large dogs, an isolation room as well as specialized areas for exotics and a dedicated dental area were added. Our staff now has more elbow room and more work-stations from which to serve your pets.
Our facility has state of the art equipment, from the air driven dental system to allow everything from routine dental prophylaxis to endodontics and restorations, to the anesthesia monitoring which can include respiratory, EKG, pulse-oximetry, and blood pressure readouts. In surgery we use laser and radiosurgical techniques to minimize hemorrhage and perceived pain which shortens recovery. We also have flexible and rigid endoscopy for minimally invasive surgeries. Our digital radiography system allow rapid visualization of problems and our in-house blood chemistry and blood count machines provide prompt values to allow better and quicker therapeutic choices and case monitoring. Laser surgery reduces bleeding and pain by sealing small vessels and nerve endings. We are now doing all our feline declaws with a laser technique. We also incorporate ultrasound which allows non-invasive imaging of any soft-tissue areas, especially the abdomen, and the heart (an echocardiogram). This allows us many new opportunities to find disease earlier and determine its true extent in a less invasive way. It also allows a way to check on pregnancies and reproductive situations. By connecting the ultrasound to the internet we can also perform telemedicine which allows us to send out ultrasound images, lab results, radiographs and EKGs to specialists who can then help interpret them and send us a detailed opinion within a few hours.
Computerized records and on-line consulting are a necessity in modern medicine. Many new reference and continuing education resources are coming online all the time and our continued investment will allow the best use of these new resources. We continue to expand our presence online with both FaceBook pages and our brand new App from Pet Partners to expand communication with our clients.
