We offer bathing and full grooming services. We have a full selection of flea and heartworm medication, a stocked pharmacy, as well as prescription diets. All products are sold to our clients at competitive prices with a full guarantee.
Routine Wellness Vaccinations
Our wellness and vaccination programs are designed to prevent disease and prolong the lives of your companion animals. Disease prevention is always less costly than dealing with the treatment of a disease once your pet has developed it. Our knowledgeable staff will be happy to answer any questions you may have regarding vaccinations and which are best for your pet.
Comprehensive exams are recommended twice annually since our dear pets age much faster than their guardians. Biannual exams and diagnostic blood panels are the first step toward an early diagnosis of any disease affecting your animal. Early diagnosis of a disease process can lead your pet to a longer healthier life. Back to top
Our puppy wellness program is designed to offer your new puppy all the benefits of veterinary services available to him/her from 6 weeks of age to 16 weeks of age. Included in this service is a series of examinations and vaccinations including rabies, distemper, parvovirus, etc. In addition, your puppy will be tested for worms and be treated for the most common intestinal parasites. Intestinal parasites can cause your puppy to vomit, experience diarrhea, and even cause your puppy to become anemic (low red blood cells). However, it is possible for your puppy to have intestinal parasites and not show any clinical signs. Performing a fecal test will allow us to treat your puppy accordingly. Although some worms are visible to the naked eye, most intestinal parasites are diagnosed by examining the stool of your puppy microscopically.
Our kitten wellness program is designed to offer your new kitten all the benefits of veterinary services available to him/her from 6 weeks of age to 12 weeks of age. Included in this service is a series of examinations and vaccinations including rabies, panleukopenia (distemper), leukemia, etc. In addition, your kitten will be tested for worms and be treated for the most common intestinal parasites. Intestinal parasites can cause your kitten to vomit, experience diarrhea, and even cause your kitten to become anemic (low red blood cells). However, it is possible for your kitten to have intestinal parasites and not show any clinical signs. A microscopic fecal examination will allow us to evaluate the presence of these parasites.
Our senior wellness program is designed to offer your senior pet biannual comprehensive exams and different levels of blood work.
Medical Services, including In-House Laboratory Testing and Allergy Testing
Our knowledgeable staff and our facilities allow us to deal with a variety of medical conditions your pet may experience. We hope we do not have to see you or your pet for an emergency but if we do, we are equipped to handle the situation. In some cases, your pet may require hospitalization and further diagnostic tests.
Surgical and Dentistry Services
We provide full surgical services at our clinic including routine spay and neuters, dental, soft-tissue, and orthopedic (including OFAs and ACL) surgeries. Our staff is also capable of performing surgical procedures on exotic pets such as birds, squirrels, rabbits, and more! To see if we can assist your exotic pet please call our office.
Anesthesia and patient monitoring varies greatly among clinics. When you choose your veterinarian, be sure to ask about the types of anesthetics used and the protocols for monitoring anesthesia. Often the more expensive anesthetics are safer to use. However, anesthetics are also chosen for other reasons including their ability to control pain. Feel free to ask our staff any questions you may have regarding anesthesia before your pet's procedure.
Pain Management and Parasite Prevention and Control
We have a fully stocked pharmacy and know the issue of pain management is of great concern to pet owners today. As in human medicine, we have a variety of medications available to manage any pain experienced by your pet both before and after surgery, any pain related to old age, and in the event of trauma. We would be pleased to discuss the options available to you and your pet under any of the above circumstances.
Provided by the Companion Class IV Deep Tissue Therapy Laser, this treatment modality is a scientifically proven treatment for post-surgical pain and many acute and chronic conditions. Laser Therapy uses a beam of laser light to deeply penetrate tissue without damaging it. This noninvasive, drug-free treatment induces a biological response in the cells that reduces pain, reduces inflammation, and speeds the rate of healing. It can be beneficial alone or in conjunction with many other forms of treatment.
Climate Control Boarding
We have separate dog and cat facilities to provide your pet with a comfortable stay while you are away. We will feed any specialized or prescriptive diets that may be required as well as medicate any animals as needed. We have a private room with cat condos for cats and a grassy, fenced-in yard for exercising dogs.
You will have the added benefit of knowing that if your animal experiences any illness while you're away, it will be promptly and competently addressed by one of our clinicians. For a tour of our boarding facilities, please feel free to drop by anytime. To set up dates for boarding feel free to call our office or request an appointment on your pet portal.
We offer a full spa day at our establishment for both canines and felines. All baths include fur conditioning, brushing, nail trimming, ear cleaning, and anal gland expression. Owners are welcome to bring any colognes or shampoos they prefer from home. If your pet is experiencing any skin issues, our veterinary staff will be happy to assess their condition and provide a medicated shampoo for your pet. We also do lyme dips (for ringworm) and deskunk baths.
Google Microchip Pet Identification and Registration
Microchipping has become a very popular and safe way to permanently identify your pet and you as the owner in the unfortunate case that your pet is lost. Microchipping involves placement of a small electronic chip the size and shape of a piece of rice just under the skin in the neck area. A needle is used to inject the chip.
If your pet becomes lost and is transported to a humane society, the humane society will be able to scan your pet for the chip and contact you. The scanner is similar to a scanner found in the grocery store. We advise you to use this system of identification as well as a collar identification system on your pet.
Pet Health ID Cards
Now through our friends at VetScene, we're offering Pet Health ID Cards with your annual vaccinations.
Our appointment book is computerized, which allows us to efficiently make appointments for you and your pet. Our receptionists and team will attempt to accommodate all requests to the best of our ability. Emergencies are accepted anytime our clinic is open. If you feel you have an emergency with your pet, please call us or come in immediately. If possible it is best to call before coming in so that a staff member can advise you on your particular emergency.
We have a veterinarian and personnel on duty six days a week who are trained and equipped to handle any urgent care your pet has. Usually an emergency team consists of at least one veterinarian and several technicians working together to save a pet's life. Emergencies can be things such as accidental ingestion of rat poison, hit by car, and chocolate ingestion. If you ever feel that your pet needs emergency treatment do not hesitate to call or come in immediately.
We are also available for urgent care when the condition is not life-threatening. If you feel your pet needs to be seen before you are able to get an appointment, our veterinarians will work to "squeeze" you in between scheduled appointments. When you arrive, our receptionists will be able to give you an estimate on how long you may have to wait in order to be seen.
