Exam Room 3- Our veterinary exam room for smaller dogs and cats.

Pharmacy- For your convenience Gulf Gate Animal Hospital is fully stocked with all the common medications needed to treat your pet promptly including antibiotics, flea preventatives, pain medications, NSAIDS, as well as many highly researched natural/ holistic treatments.  

In-House Laboratory- Gulf Gate Animal Hospital has a full array of laboratory equipment to run complete blood counts, chemistry screens (to asses Kidney and liver function, electrolytes, blood sugar, pancreatic inflammation, Calcium, and Phosphorus), urine analysis and cytology of tumors and masses within 20 minutes to better tailor treatments in acutely ill patients.  We run fecal centrifugations (vs normal fecal flotations) which are over twice as sensitive at picking up intestinal parasite infections.  We also do in-house cultures and can have results in as little as 24 hours to more quickly treat serious infections appropriately. We test for heart worms, Feline Leukemia, and Feline Immunodeficiency Virus, and Giardiasis with results in 10 minutes.

Our Veterinary Surgeons preform all types of surgery including spays, neuters, tumor removals, skin lumpectomies, gastrointestinal foreign body surgeries, bladder stone removal, amputations, enucleations, Liver, Kidney and intestinal biopsies, eyelid tumor removal, and gastric dilatation volvulus (GDV) surgery.

Dental/Treatment Room- Our veterinarians perform and extensive exam and evaluation of the oral cavity after a thorough dental cleaning.  After assessing gum disease and periodontal health of each individual tooth and knowing the ability of the owner
to perform home dental care we will make a treatment plan.


Instant Digital Radiology Suite- Our Animal Hospital is equipped with Digital Radiography which allows acquisition of X-rays within seconds.  If needed these X-rays can be sent through the internet for a second opinion from a board certified radiologist within minutes. The clarity and contrast is much superior to traditional X-ray equipment. 

Also, no hazardous chemicals are needed and a digital copy of the X-rays can be made to a disk easily.
