Our equipment and facility are modern by any standard. Our in house lab is comprised of Abaxis equipment (HM5 and both VS2 and VS1). We use Abaxis and Idexx for outside lab services (via FedEx). We have most of the modern "toys" including, but not limited to:
- Digital radiographs
- Pulse ox
- Bluetooth EKG,
- Class IV Companion Laser
- New dental machine
- Automatic cytology slide machine (for consistency)
- Real time microscope results are visible on monitors in each room
- Mac computers in all rooms
- and we are transitioning to ezyVet in November 2017, a paperless and cloud-based software system with further integrations and capabilities.
Our anesthesia is designed around patient needs and doctor preference: Propofol, Ket/Val, Kitty Magic, Doggy Magic, TTDEX, Locals Midazolam, Opioids, etc. are available at our clinic. We use isoflurane as our inhalant. We have multiple anesthetic machines and monitoring equipment.
There are no referral clinics on Guam. We use telemedicine and consultations as needed, but as things go, Wise Owl Animal Hospital is the place to go in the North Pacific for pet care. Please see "Practicing in Guam" for more on what we see and treat the most of.
Our staff is full of fun loving and enthusiastic personalities. There are over 22 highly trained certified veterinary nurses and 5 kennel assistants on staff. Six of our nurses are also Certified Dental Hygienists. Our nurses are capable of doing all your lab work, phlebotomy, IV and urinary catheter placements, medication administration, etc. They are hard working, eager learners that are fantastic to be around both inside and out of the clinic work environment.
