The Klein Animal Clinic offers quality veterinary care through a friendly and caring staff. We use state-of-the-art diagnostic equipment such as ECG telemetric machines, blood chemistry analyzers and x-ray equipment. We provide laser surgery to all patients in an effort to minimize pain and shorten the recovery period. We also offer therapeutic laser therapy equipment for canine rehabilitation cases. We are able to perform much of our laboratory testing with our own in-house equipment, there by providing quicker results in a matter of minutes rather than hours or days.
