About Pinebrook Animal Hospital
Our doctors and staff are service-oriented, compassionate, and devoted to giving superior care to your pets. We promise to always serve you efficiently and readily.
After tiring of practicing medicine in an all too rushed 10 doctor practice, Dr. Dubil opened Pinebrook Animal Hospital in 2012 with the aim of giving each appointment ample time to nurture the doctor-client-patient bond. At Pinebrook, we believe this relationship has become lost in our fast-paced society. Our boutique-style hospital atmosphere reflects the comforts of home while giving excellent care, from the moment you walk in and are greeted by a friendly face until the moment you leave.

Pinebrook Animal Hospital Veterinary Services
We offer these cutting-edge diagnostics to better serve you and help your pet live the longest, fullest, most healthy life possible. That is our priority at Pinebrook for your furry family member.
Plan on arriving on time and spending about half an hour to 45 minutes in these exams. We have a lot to talk about! During the first seven years of your pet’s life, we like to see your pet once a year. As they age and have more health concerns, sometimes needing more care, we like to see your pet at least twice a year.
Digital dental radiographs allow assessment of the teeth (fractures or internal disease), the surrounding soft tissues (periodontal disease, stomatitis, cysts, draining tracts, abscesses, fistulas, tumors), the joints (TMI or mandibular symphysis), and the bone (jaw fractures). Digital x-rays can also reveal subgingival (under the gums) foreign objects, cysts, and tumors.
In order to ensure that the anesthetic dental procedure is as safe as possible, Pinebrook Animal hospital does several things. First, labs are run to make sure there are no last-minute problems that we need to know about, like an infection or kidney problems. Secondly, we run an EKG to make sure there are no heartbeat abnormalities before starting anesthesia. In addition, we place an IV to make sure we can have access to the bloodstream to administer saline and just in case we need to give an emergency medication. These costs, as well as the digital x-rays, are reflected in the base cost of the dental cleaning. If, however, we discover after taking x-rays that your pet needs some infected or abscessed teeth extracted, those costs will be additional, and we will inform you as to those costs.
We do everything to make your pet’s stay at our hospital comfortable, as well as sending home appropriate pain and antibiotic medication when necessary. If you are not sure if your pet needs a dental cleaning, please schedule a no-charge evaluation of their teeth so we can decide what their mouth needs!
If you have special requests, please let us know and we will be sure to accommodate them. Dealing with the end of a pets’ life is never easy, but we want to do whatever we can to make the process less difficult. Please contact us today to learn more about our hospice and euthanasia services.
An echocardiogram is an ultrasound of the heart, which allows your pets’ veterinarian to measure how thick the heart’s muscular walls are, how well the heart contracts, and how well the valves are working. Your pets’ veterinarian can also prescribe the appropriate medications after a successful diagnosis to keep your pets’ heart as healthy as possible. Some symptoms of diseases of the heart may include exercise intolerance, lethargy, collapse, and difficulty breathing. It is important for your pet to see the veterinarian if your pet has any of these symptoms.
Being inside the animal’s body, damage and other symptoms of diseased or injured internal organs are often not visible. Plus, our pets are unable to alert us when they are suffering pain or other symptoms of internal organ problems. This is why periodic head-to-tail preventive care exams and good nutrition, especially in the case of older pets, are an important part of ensuring a long and healthy life for your pet.
Thanks to advances in modern veterinary medicine, we have numerous ways to diagnose and treat internal organ problems in pets. Our diagnostic tools and procedures, along with state-of-the-art laboratory techniques, make it possible to monitor and diagnose what is happening medically inside your pet without having to resort to exploratory surgery.
We carry popular items like flea and tick preventatives, as well as, heartworm preventatives and other medications. If you have any questions or want to learn more about our pharmacy, please contact us today.
Puppy & Kitten Care
- Distemper combination (DHPP)
- Microchip (at time of spay or neuter, or earlier)
We recommend spaying and neutering your dog between 6-12 months of age, depending on breed.
- Distemper/upper respiratory (FVRCP)
- Feline leukemia
- Microchip (at time of spay or neuter, or earlier)
We recommend spaying or neutering your cat around 6 months of age.
Radiology (x-rays) is routinely used to provide valuable information about a pet’s bones, gastrointestinal tract (stomach, intestines, colon), respiratory tract (lungs), heart, and genitourinary system (bladder, prostate). It can be used alone or in conjunction with other diagnostic tools to provide a list of possible causes for a pet’s condition, identify the exact cause of a problem or rule out possible problems.
The use of radiology is safe, and our entire staff is highly trained. It is our goal to provide your pet with the highest level of medical care possible, and this is just one of the many ways we achieve that.
Spay & Neuter
Known as pyometra, this potentially life-threatening condition in which there is an infection in the uterus, can be very expensive to treat. It is 100% preventable if your female is spayed.
Mammary tumors (breast cancer)
Over one-half of all mammary tumors are cancerous and can spread to other areas of the body in an unspayed female. Early spaying, prior to your female beginning her first heat cycle, reduces the incidence of this type of tumor formation to zero.
Testicular problems and cancer
This cancer, as well as prostatitis (an infection causing swelling of the prostate), can be avoided with early neutering. Benign prostatic hypertrophy, where the prostate grows in size and causes pain and trouble urinating is also eliminated in the neutered dog.
Unwanted behaviors, such as dominance aggression, marking territory, and wandering, can be avoided with spaying or neutering.
There are more puppies and kittens in shelters than there are people willing to provide them with love and care. Sadly, many are euthanized. Spaying and neutering your pets can help reduce the number of animals in need of homes.
Making sure our patients remain safe during surgery and other medical procedures is extremely important to us. Our team of veterinarians and veterinary technicians is skilled in using anesthesia and monitoring patients to ensure their safety and provide the most comfortable experience. Anesthesia and patient monitoring vary greatly from clinic to clinic. You can be confident that we use the most effective and up-to-date protocols. The type of anesthesia we use depends on the procedure. Some require general anesthesia, while others may only call for local anesthesia. We also closely monitor every procedure, regardless of whether it’s routine or more advanced.
We will communicate with you about the things you need to know before, during, and after your pets’ surgery. It is our goal to make the entire process go smoothly and to eliminate the stress and worry of surgical procedures. If you have any questions, comments, or concerns, please don’t hesitate to contact us today.
