Veterinary Services for Winston-Salem, Clemmons, Lewisville, and Lexington Pets

Here at Forsyth Veterinary Hospital, we're pet owners just like you. We understand the anxieties, challenges and responsibilities that you face every day in caring for your animals. That's why we work hard to provide pets throughout the Winston-Salem, Clemmons, Lewisville, and Lexington areas with a wide range of veterinary services -- while also providing their owners with valuable advice and recommendations so they can keep their pets healthier between vet visits.

That good health begins from the first weeks of life as we administer those all-important first wellness examinations and procedures, including vaccinations, heartworm prevention and spay or neuter surgery. As your pet grows into adulthood, we continue to provide wellness care as well as advanced emergency treatment if necessary. In his senior years, we can provide more intensive examinations, make dietary and exercise recommendations, and prescribe medications for any age-related conditions. Throughout all stages of your pet's life, you can count on our team for:

    • Preventative Medical Care - Deworming, heartworm/flea/tick prevention, booster shots, annual evaluations and other wellness care
    • Surgical Procedures - Sexual sterilization, emergency internal/external surgery, tumor removal, orthopedic reconstruction
    • Dental Care - Annual dental checkups and cleanings, extractions, periodontal disease treatment, oral cancer detection and treatment
    • Diagnostic Testing - Digital X-rays, electrocardiograms (EKGs), blood/urine/fecal testing
    • Laser Therapy - Low-level or "cold" laser light to stimulate healing and relieve pain/inflammation in injuries and chronic pain sites

      We also offer two services that may not sound "medical" but can in fact convey important health benefits to your pet. Pet bathing can remove troublesome oils and pests while allowing us to look for any signs of skin disorders. Veterinary boarding gives animals a safe, healthy, comfortable "home away from home" while also granting them access to prompt, 7-day veterinary attention if they need it -- even on holidays! Dr. Gillis herself can attend to any special needs or situations your pet may encounter.

      Our team at Forsyth Veterinary Hospital sees animal care not just as a job, but also as a passion and a way of life. If that's the kind of care you want for your pet, contact us today at 336-750-6300 to learn more and schedule an appointment!
