Referral Services

Our patients are referred for advanced therapy or diagnostics unavailable to your veterinarian, or for an experienced second opinion on a difficult or unusual case.


Surgical Services:

At Northeast Veterinary Referral Hospital our surgical center is a state-of-the-art facility. We offer the treatment of a wide array of surgical conditions including orthopedic, soft tissue, neurologic, oncologic (cancer), and thoracic conditions. Surgical procedures are performed using the latest in pain management techniques and the safest anesthetic protocols. After surgery, your pet will recover under the supervision of a surgical team member. If an overnight stay is required, the compassionate team of emergency veterinarians, licensed veterinary technicians and veterinary assistants will care for your pet twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week!

Internal Medicine

Dr. Runde performs abdominal ultrasounds for liver, gall bladder, spleen, kidney, pancreatic and urinary bladder problems. He also offers cardiac ultrasounds for heart and lung problems. Internal medicine also offers endoscopy, colonoscopy, rhinoscopy and bronchoscopy, diagnostics and therapeutics for endocrine and infectious diseases such as Cushing’s, Addison’s, thyroid or electrolyte disorders, diabetes, lyme disease and leptospirosis.

Physical Rehabilitation:

Physical rehabilitation is a branch of veterinary medicine aimed to enhance and/or restore function and improve quality of life in animals with physical impairments. Today, rehabilitation services are becoming a valuable resource in both veterinary referral centers and general practices nationwide. Modalities available for animal physical rehabilitation include: aquatic therapy (underwater treadmill, pool, or whirlpool), therapeutic LASER, acupuncture, electrical stimulation, therapeutic ultrasound, massage, joint mobilizations, hot and cold therapy, passive range of motion, stretch, and therapeutic exercises.
