Services

APPOINTMENT

Since pets have a shorter life span than us, they age faster. We can not stress enough the importance of an annual physical examination. Thorough examinations and preventive care can help alleviate serious health problems. We offer a wide range of diagnostic and therapeutic services to keep your companions feeling their best.

Surgery

We offer almost all surgical services including the most common: spaying, neutering, growth removals, bone fracture repairs, and intestinal surgeries. We also have board-certified surgeons come to perform surgeries that otherwise would be done at specialty facilities. This not only is more convenient for owners but also helps reduce expenses.

Chemotherapy
We perform multiple chemotherapy protocols for many different types of cancer to improve quality of life. Depending on the protocol, the chemotherapy may be an injection or a pill.
House Calls

For your convenience, we make visits to the home if a patient or a client is unable to get to the clinic because of extenuating circumstances. We can provide transportation for hospitalization and offer euthanasia services to ease both the client and the patient during stressful situations.

Cardiology
We perform ECG (electrocardiograph) and echocardiogram (ultrasound of the heart) on-site as well as consultations with cardiology specialists.
Laboratory
Our in-house laboratory allows us to run routine blood work for emergency anesthesia or sick visits. In minutes we are able to diagnose parvo virus, heartworm disease, tick-born disease, feline leukemia, and feline immunodeficiency virus (FIV). We are able to send out blood, urine, fecal, and tumor samples for more specialized testing.
In-house Pharmacy
We maintain a complete pharmacy for medications, skin products, supplements, vitamins, flea and tick control, heartworm preventatives, and prescription diets to meet the needs of your pet.
Behavioral Counseling
We provide counseling on common problems such as excessive barking, chewing, spraying, scratching, digging, house soiling, and aggression. We also have access to reputable veterinary behaviorists when such a referral is necessary.
Grooming
Regular and medicated bathing services are available. Scheduled nail trims are available as an out-patient service as well.
Internal Medicine Consults
We offer in-hospital referrals to internal medicine specialists who also perform ultrasounds.
Acupuncture
This alternative form of medicine has crossed over to the animal side for many, if not all, ailments. Most patients don’t mind it and have dramatic positive results.
Radiology
Our on-site digital x-ray equipment provides high-quality x-rays to aid in the quick diagnosis of many conditions and they are sent to a board-certified radiologist for review.
Dentistry
Our dental services include routine teeth scaling and polishing, digital dental X-rays, tooth extractions, and oral surgery.
Permanent ID
We offer microchip implantation either awake or while under anesthesia.
Nutritional Counseling
We provide guidance regarding your pet’s nutritional needs for each life stage and during any disease conditions that may require food adjustments.
Boarding
We provide boarding for the day or extended stays for all species of animals. We have large cages and runs available. Special food, services, and medications are accepted.
Technician Appointments
For owner convenience and to help reduce expenses certain treatments can be done with a technician such as nail trims, blood sugar checks, vaccine boosters, injections, subcutaneous fluids, and recheck blood work.
Emergency Care
We see emergencies during hours of operation. If you are able to call ahead of time we can give you advice for safe transportation of the patient and prepare for your arrival to better assist you and your pet. On Sundays, we are open for emergencies only from 9 am to 3 pm.
