We provide well-pet preventive care, diagnostics and out-patient treatment as well as hospitalization and end-of life care.
We provide surgical care for dogs, cats, rabbits, rodents and domestic poultry.
Surgeries include spay/neuter, mass removal, trauma repair and more.
We provide routine dental cleaning, xrays and extractions if they are needed.
Oral hygiene has perhaps been the most neglected aspect of pet health care. It is estimated that up to 85% of all cats over four years of age have some degree of periodontal disease. It is estimated that up to 80% of dogs more than three years of age have significant dental disease. Of that 80%, there are 50% that require full immediate attention.
It should come as no surprise that this is the case.
After all, dogs and cats have teeth just like we do, and the same conditions that lead to our tooth and gum problems also occur in our pets’ mouth.
If your pet has existing periodontal disease, the only way to clean the teeth is under general anesthesia. A chlorhexidine solution is used to flush the mouth to reduce bacteria. The teeth and gums are evaluated and noted, then scaled, polished, and flushed below the gum line to remove debris and tartar. Fluoride is then applied to the teeth. Once teeth are cleaned we will perform any dental surgery or treatments your pet may need as deemed necessary by our veterinarian. You may choose to have us call you prior to performing these treatments or you may authorize us to perform these procedures as needed when you bring your pet in the morning of the prophylaxis.
IF at home dental care isn’t realistic, then yearly (if not more often—depending on your pet’s specific needs) in-hospital dental prophylaxis will be necessary.

Creswell Veterinary Hospital's Angel Fund
A cat is found sitting with it’s mouth hanging open and it’s eyes swollen shut. It’s not wearing a collar with I.D. and a check around the neighborhood finds no owner. What happens to this cat?
Lane County and the City of Creswell have no safety net to provide care to sick or injured stray cats. Dogs fare only slightly better. Creswell Veterinary Hospital (CVH) provides emergency care to stabilize these animals which also gives the owner a chance to find their pet. If after 3 days no owner comes forward, dogs, if stable are transferred to either the City of Creswell or GreenHill Humane Society. If they are not stable, they are euthanized. Cats on the other hand, have nowhere else to go.
The Angel Fund was created here at CVH to cover the costs of treating these unowned, injured animals. The animal is screened to determine if it is an Angel Fund candidate.
Angel Fund Criteria:
A. Animal is a stray or if an owner cannot afford to pay for care, ownership is relinquished to CVH.
B. Animal must have a treatable illness or injury.
C. Animal must have a temperament suitable for adoption
D. Angel Funds are available to cover costs.
E. CVH employees are able to take on the animals care and rehabilitation.
Angel Fund recipients are offered for adoption as soon as they are medically stable. A donation to the Angel Fund is asked for at the time of adoption.
CVH reserves the right to screen applicants for Angel Fund Adoptions.
