Advanced Veterinary Technology
CO2 SuperPulse Laser
The Adobe Pet Hospital was first in the Tri-Valley to offer this revolutionary new level of care for our patients. Our C02 SuperPulse Laser provides significant advantages to patients during a variety of surgical procedures. These include: reduced pain, reduced swelling and minimal bleeding at the surgical site. This means a more comfortable surgical recovery for your pet. Certification from UC Davis’ Advanced Laser Surgery program assures your pet will be in good hands.
The Adobe Pet Hospital is one of very few veterinary hospitals equipped with the most advanced tools and training to diagnose and treat difficult ear infections in both the outer canal and middle ear. We are equipped with both Karl Storz® and MedRx® video-otoscopy equipment and instruments and received advanced training at U.C. Davis, School of Veterinary Medicine. Combined with the SuperPulse Laser we have the ability to perform specialized surgical procedures inside the ear canal and middle ear cavity (bulla).
Diagnostic Imaging - Digital X-ray and
Digital Dental X-ray
We are proud to be one of the few veterinary practices in the Tri-Valley to have state of the art digital X-ray. This allows us to obtain images much faster than traditional X-ray methods, plus it produces better-quality images and is extremely safe. Because the images are digital we are able to e-mail them for referrals and specialty evaluation as well as share the images with you in the exam rooms when discussing the care of your pet.
Our Veterinary Digital X-Ray System: Image-Vet 70Plus
In a study conducted at the University of California, Davis (AM J Vet Res 1998, 59, pgs. 686-691 and 692-695) where all dogs and cats presented for routine dental cleanings were radiographed, significant lesions requiring therapy were uncovered in a majority of the cases. Currently, less than 10% of veterinary practices use dental radiology. As with our own mouths, dental radiographs are a key tool in accurately diagnosing and treating potentially painful, disease causing problems in your pet’s mouth.
We are proud to offer this valuable service for our patients.

Vet-Dop Animal Ultrasound Doppler Blood Pressure System
The Vet-Dop is designed to screen for hypertension, to check blood pressure in surgery, to monitor peripheral profusion in surgery. The non-invasive Doppler technique is the method of choice for measuring blood pressure in animals weighing less than 15 pounds, especially cats. Other methods, including monitors that use the oscillometric technique, are not capable of detecting the smaller vessels with accurate results. The Vet-Dop also works well on larger breeds. The Vet-Dop is the Doppler of choice and preferred by experts in the field of veterinary blood pressure measurement.
Vmed PC-Vet Wireless lead II ECG Monitor
PC-Vet can be used in the exam room to screen for heart abnormalities that may cause problems before, during and after surgery. ECG screens often allow us to find defects that support follow on care. Dr. Larry Tilley, a cardiology consultant, states that no other diagnostic test, including ultrasound, can accurately determine the source of various arrhythmias and conduction abnormalities as is done with ECG testing. For difficult cases, the ECG printout can be emailed directly to a cardiologist for quick interpretation to determine the necessary course of action.
