Cat & Dog preventative care
Preventative annual exams are essential to provide the best medicine for your pet. Through thorough physical examinations, your pet can live longer, healthier lives.
Preventive exams may also uncover disease earlier through screening tests which can lead to improved treatment prognosis and enhanced quality of life for your pet.
Senior care and geriatric medicine
Did you know that our pets may exhibit similar age-related changes just like we do as we age? These conditions can be addressed during our 6-month senior examinations as our pets "get over the hill."
As the quality of veterinary medicine improves, our pets are living longer and happier lives with senior care and geriatric medicine!

Laboratory testing and diagnostics
Laveen Veterinary Center can perform comprehensive laboratory testing for your dog or cat. After screening, the results will be discussed with owners to help screen, monitor and diagnose diseases.
Digital radiology (X-ray)
Our state of the art, digital X-ray and digital dental x-ray have high resolution to enhance our diagnostic capabilities. The X-rays are reviewed by our veterinarians, and can also be sent for review to a board-certified veterinary radiologist if it is deemed necessary.
The close relationship with our linked hospitals allows us access to state of the art diagnostics. With that being said, we utilize the ultrasound services at University Animal Hospital in Tempe, AZ.
Ultrasound is used to enhance our internal imaging ability, and we can visualize internal structures in real time. The ability to view internal structures in real time dramatically improves out diagnostic capabilities.
Dentistry and oral surgery
Have Max's kisses been less cute however far more stinky? The oral health of our pets is something we take very seriously.
Just like humans cat and dog teeth cleanings are an essential part of your Pets general health and oral hygiene and a thorough examination of the mouth will help determine if a trip to the veterinary dentist is necessary. It also provides us with an opportunity to discuss with our clients how to help prevent periodontal disease.
If a tooth extraction is necessary, our Veterinarians are skilled in oral surgery including complicated tooth extractions and flap procedures to prevent open sockets.
The veterinarians at Laveen Veterinary Center are experienced in diagnosis and treatment of common and uncommon diseases in our pets. Metabolic, endocrine and infectious disease beware, the vets at LVC are here!
Advances in veterinary medicine have made treatment of many types of cancer not only possible, but very realistic. The number one goal at Laveen Veterinary Center in cancer treatment with chemotherapy is to maintain the best possible quality of life for your pet.
Dr. Evan Ware has adopted a particular interest in chemotherapy through his own experiences coupled with years of practice treating cancer patients and continuing education in the field of veterinary oncology.
General and advanced soft tissue surgery
The surgical suite at Laveen Veterinary Center provides an environment for our experienced veterinarians to perform routine veterinary procedures and advanced abdominal and soft tissue surgical procedures.
Comprehensive anesthesia is monitored to ensure the highest safety for our patients during the surgical procedure.
Following surgery, we focus on appropriate pain management and postoperative care to facilitate the quickest recoveries for our surgical patients.
The veterinarians at Laveen Veterinary Center know which "bones to pick." Dr. Evan Ware has developed a special interest in veterinary orthopedics and is experienced in treating patients' orthopedic problems surgically and medically.
Dr. Ware's experiences cover a broad spectrum of orthopedic problems that include degenerative joint disease (arthritis), complicated fracture repair and Tibial Plateau Leveling Osteotomy (TPLO) for craniate cruciate ligament injury (it's the equivalent to a torn ACL in people).
Assessing pain levels in our animal patients can be very challenging since our pets can't tell us what hurts. Our veterinary services include identifying subtle cues, searching for the primary source of pain and developing an appropriate pain management plan is one of our passions.
