Services at Forsyth Veterinary Hospital

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

Here at Forsyth Veterinary Hospital, we provide a full range of veterinary services for dogs, cats, and most exotic or “pocket” pets in Winston, New-Salem, Clemmons, Lewisville and Lexington. Our services include:


Preventative Medical Care

Regular wellness evaluations enable our skilled veterinary team to detect illnesses or injuries before they can develop into major health crises. Vaccinations should usually be started at a very young age, and then “boosted” periodically to maintain protection against potentially deadly infections. Preventative medications are also necessary to guard against flea, tick, and heartworm infestation.

Surgical Procedures

Spaying or neutering keeps your pet from getting reproductive cancers or engaging in risky “heat”-related behaviors. If your pet is hit by a car or attacked by another animal, he may have lacerations that need suturing, broken bones that require surgical repair or a damaged knee joint requiring surgery. Our veterinary team can also remove tumors, stones, and other internal objects that threaten your pet’s life.

Pet Dental Care

We generally recommend annual dental evaluations to check for signs of disease, along with deep cleanings (under anesthesia) to prevent the buildup of tartar, a food source for dangerous bacteria. If one decayed tooth threatens the health of nearby teeth, we may perform an extraction. Oral cancers can also be removed via dental surgery.

Electrocardiograms (EKGs)

An electrocardiogram, or EKG, is a method for monitoring the electrical activity of your pet’s heart. In this painless, non-invasive procedure, electrodes are adhered to the pet’s skin for a few minutes while a machine records his heart rate on a roll of paper for examination by our veterinarian.

Pet Laser Therapy

Laser therapy is a high-tech way to soothe pain without drugs and stimulate the healing of damaged tissues. A harmless low-level laser beam increases blood flow and cellular repair while relieving soreness and inflammation in the treated area.

Digital X-Rays

Digital x-rays offer much higher resolution and detail than standard x-rays, allowing us to make more accurate diagnoses. They’re also available for viewing on a computer monitor immediately, with no waiting to develop film. We can even email the results to another practitioner instantly if the need arises.

Pet Boarding

Veterinary boarding gives your pet a safe, comforting place to stay while you travel. We can administer medications to pets with special needs while providing all our guests with affection, healthy food and exercise.

Bathing & Grooming

Baths don’t just make your pet smell better — they also remove pests, particles that cause skin irritation and oils that attract bacteria. We can give your pet a thorough cleaning while also examining his skin for any problems that merit treatment.
