Services

We offer a wide variety of amenities to help care for your pet through their life.

  • Wellness Exams

Preventative care is vital to your pet to ensure that they live a long and healthy life. Annual or bi-annual physical exams can help in the early detection of illnesses and/or serious diseases that could be life-threatening. That is why our team professionals recommend these visits, to allow us to help you keep your pet happy and healthy.

  • Vaccinations

Immunizations (or Vaccines) are vital in ensuring your pet lives a long, healthy life. Vaccines help train the immune system in quickly and effectively responding when exposed to the life- threatening disease or illness. That is why it is important to start your young pet off on the proper vaccine schedule and follow up with annual visits to ensure that maintain proper protection. Because we do not want to gamble with your pet’s protection we follow the guidelines recommended by AAHA (The American Animal Hospital Association).

We know that a pet’s immune system can “remember” diseases from vaccines and that a puppy and kitten will receive antibodies from their’s mother’s-milk, but we don’t always know how long that memory may last for each individual animal. Therefore, our recommendations are starting vaccines between 6-8 weeks of age, with 3-4 boosters every 3 weeks. Rabies Vaccine cannot be given until they are a minimum of 12 weeks of age. After the series of puppy/kitten vaccines, an annual vaccine update and visit is recommend, with some vaccines lasting up to three years after a pet is one-year old.

  • Veterinary Surgery

Should your pet require a surgical procedure, we offer a full range of surgeries from routine spays and neuters to more advanced procedures. Our team of professionals are trained to handle even the most serious of surgeries and are dedicated to ensuring your pets is provided with the best care possible before, during and after surgery.

  • Veterinary Dentistry

Dental Disease is a serious contribution to your pet living a long and healthy life. If left untreated, dental disease can cause teeth to become loose and painful, as well as allow bacteria to grow and cause harm to internal organs. That is why preventative dental care is important and we encourage you to have your pet’s teeth professionally cleaned on an annual basis.

Our professional dental cleaning is an intensive and detail-oriented procedure that requires our patient’s to be under anesthesia. During their procedure they are given a full oral exam, whole mouth radiographs are taken to reveal any hidden concerns or problems, and then followed by a deep cleaning using a state-of-the art ultrasonic scaler and polisher. Your pet’s health is our main concern and our dedicated and caring team is always willing to help answer any questions or concerns you may have regarding preventative measures and post-procedure care.

  • On-site Laboratory and Radiograph Services

Our facility houses a state-of-the-art blood chemistry analyzer and machine to help in preventative care and/or detect and diagnosis any possible concerns that your pet may have. This allows our team of professional to quickly diagnosis and begin treatment after receiving laboratory results during the of an exam.

Our new state-of-the Digital X-Ray machine provides us with more advantages over the conventional film, allowing for an image of your pet to appear on screen within minutes after taken. Radiographs are a vital tool in helping our Veterinarians in diagnosing: Broken/Fracture Bones, Back or limb problems, Arthritis, Dislocated Joints, Tumors, Foreign Objects, Organ Problems.

  • Senior Pet Care

Once your pet is seven years old, they are considered a Senior Pet. Due to improved veterinary care and dietary habits, pets are now living longer lives. Senior pets can still develop many of the same health concerns as older people do, such as: arthritis and joint discomfort, heart-disease, kidney/liver disease, diabetes, senility, weakness, or cancer and other age-related health issues.

Once a pet becomes a Senior, we recommend an annual wellness visit to ensure your pet is staying healthy. We also might suggest taking some preventative measures like bloodwork or a dietary change. Every pet is unique in their own way, and we strive to help personalize our patient’s care to help them live a long and happy life.

  • Boarding

Our facility offers medical and non-medical boarding for our patients. Whether short-term or long-term we strive to ensure that your pet is continually loved and cared for during their stay with us.

Although, we ask you to provide us with your pet’s food during their stay, if not- we will provide the food (Royal Canine Gastrointestinal Diet or Hill’s Science Diet i/d). Your pet’s stay with us is closely monitored by our team of professionals, if your pet requires daily medications or insulin injections our team is trained to handle this. Our Veterinary Technicians and Veterinarians are on-call for our staff if there was to be any medical concerns, but most importantly we want your pet(s) to feel safe and relaxed as possible while their owner’s are away.
