Equally important is parasitic prevention, which keeps your loved-ones safe from a variety of parasites, including heartworms, fleas, ticks and intestinal parasites.



Animals age 5 to 7 years for every one of ours. Because they age more rapidly, semi annual exams are very important.

Surgery

CLCVC’s experienced medical staff is specially trained to safely anesthetize, monitor and recover all surgical patients. In addition to spay/neuter and declaw procedures, we offer extensive soft tissue procedures, such as cystotomies, splenectomies, exploratories, foreign bodies, mass removals, and other surgical operations.

Therapeutic Laser

CLCVC has a Cold Therapy Laser which can be used to treat a variety of acute and chronic issues in a noninvasive manner. Laser Therapy works through a process known as Photobiostimulation. Lasers affect tissue because the photons delivered to the cells and tissue triggers biologic changes and biochemical reactions. Photons are absorbed by cytochromes within the cell mitochondria and at the cell membrane resulting in:

  • Oxygen production
  • Stimulation of ATP production
  • Increase in DNA and RNA synthesis
  • Stimulates cellular metabolism and cell growth
  • Enhanced collagen synthesis
  • Accelerates tissue repair
  • Analgesia through the release of Endorphins and enkephalins
  • Reduces inflammation
  • Promotes wound healing
  • Increases blood flow at injury site
  • Improves bone and cartilage health

Indications for Laser Therapy

  • Acute and chronic ear infections
  • Gum disease
  • Skin wounds caused by abscesses, hot spots, and lick granulomas
  • Anal gland infections
  • Acute and chronic neck and back pain (IVDD)
  • Fractures
  • Post-surgery pain, healing, and rehab
  • Muscle, ligament, and tendon injuries (Sprains / Strains)
  • Post Cruciate Ligament Repair
  • Arthritis; degenerative joint diseases like hip dysplasia
  • Joint Ankalosis
  • Inflammation and edema
  • Neuromuscular disease

Digital Radiology

Digital Radiology is available on-site for the immediate diagnosis of trauma, foreign bodies, fractured bones, tissue health and organs. Once radiographs are taken, our skilled veterinarians interpret the findings and send images to a boarded radiologist for a second opinion. Just as is standard in the human health field, a specialist reads all radiograph images taken at CLCVC.


CLCVC has state of the art digital radiology available on site. Radiographs are recommended for a variety of reasons allowing our doctors to see organs and bones in an interactive format. We also have 24/7 access to a boarded radiologist to review your pet’s films allowing us to provide the highest level of diagnosis in minutes.

Boarding and Bathing Services

We invite your pets to stay with us the next time you leave town. Our attentive kennel techs will meet your pets’ every need while boarding at Clear Lake City Veterinary Clinic. Overnight guests will enjoy daily playtime in our half-acre fenced yard. Inside their personalized kennel lodging, they will be fed twice a day and enjoy air-conditioned protection from the Houston heat. A soothing bath typically caps off your pet’s relaxing stay.

Doggie daycare is also available for pets wanting supervised care during the daytime. They will enjoy the same amenities as our overnight guests with the added bonus of returning home with their families by 6:00pm each night!

Advanced Services

Platelet Rich Plasma Injections for Canine and Feline Patients

Platelets play an important role in tissue healing. Along with their involvement in hemostasis (clotting), platelets contain a number of growth factors that stimulate tissue healing. Platelets also contain other factors that affect tissue inflammation and healing such as antibacterial and fungicidal proteins.

Platelet Rich Plasma has been used in a variety of situation:

  • Tendonitis
  • Ligament sprains or tears
  • Bursitis
  • Osteoarthritis
  • Hip dysplasia
  • Fracture Repair
  • Muscle tears
  • Wound healing
  • Corneal Ulcers
  • Burns

There are also studies that suggest that PRP may be helpful in respiratory and sinus diseases. The use of PRP is a great adjunct to surgery and in some cases may reduce or eliminate the need for surgery.

TightRope Technique

The TightRope CCL technique is considered an external repair for cranial cruciate ligament (CCL or ACL) repair. The procedure is minimally invasive, and more cost effective in comparison to the TPLO or TTA. The data suggest that the TightRope technique can be successfully performed in medium, large and giant breed dogs. The outcome of this procedure is comparable to TPLO or TTA. A MiniTightRope is also available for toy and small breeds.

The purpose of the TightRope procedure is to stabilize the stifle (knee) by counteracting the forward tibial thrust and inward rotation resulting from ACL damage, while allowing optimal range of motion for the affected joint. The procedure has a very high success rate with a low incident of complications.
