About Us

CHVH provides preventative and diagnostic medicine from newborn to geriatrics. As a general practice, all doctors are trained in dermatology, ophthalmology, orthopedics, internal medicine, dentistry, surgery, and preventative medicine.  For extraordinary situations, advanced surgical procedures, or emergencies we may refer patients to the MedVet Medical and Cancer Center (formerly Louisiana Veterinary Referral Center), SouthPaws Veterinary Surgical Specialists, or the LSU School of Veterinary Medicine in Baton Rouge.  We also occasionally refer patients to other specialists just across Lake Ponchartrain in New Orleans or Metarie.

Diagnostics performed daily in the hospital include radiology, EKG, ultrasound, cytology, heartworm tests, stool checks, feline leukemia and “aids” testing, urinalysis, inhouse blood chemistries, complete blood counts and electrolytes, as well as special tests such as thyroid and ACTH stim.

For more unusual tests and combined panels, the practice may use an outside laboratory with most results returning within 24-72 hours.

We recommend microchipping all pets, especially in our area, due to the risk of evacuations for hurricanes. We use HomeAgain microchips; visit their website at public.homeagain.com.
