Services for Your Pet

Thorough physical examinations are provided to evaluate your pet's overall health. Eyes, ears, heart and lung sounds, teeth and gums, skin and weight are assessed. As with humans, routine visits are vital to a pet's health. Our pets age more rapidly than we do, and as they grow older, they need more frequent examinations to assess their changing health.

 

Surgical Services

Our surgical suite is designed and equipped with the same life monitoring technology that you would expect at a human hospital. Pain assessment and management is of the utmost importance to the pet’s surgical care. Separate feline and canine surgical recovery wards offer a peaceful hygienic place for your pet to safely rouse after surgery and it is monitored by our attentive surgical technicians. Our Surgical Suite is equipped with life monitoring instruments for both elective and emergency surgery.

 

Diagnostic Testing

Our laboratory is equipped to perform diagnostic testing to provide you with immediate results.

 

Therapy Laser

Laser Therapy provides a non-invasive, pain-free, surgery-free, drug-free treatment which is used to treat a variety of conditions and can be performed in conjunction with existing treatment protocols. Relief and/or improvement is often noticed within hours depending on the condition and your pet’s response. Whether your pet is rehabilitating from trauma or injury, healing from wounds, or simply aging, your companion can benefit from this innovative approach to treating pain.

 

Fecal Testing

Analysis of your pet’s stool can identify internal parasites (worms) and infectious diseases (Giardia). Some pets aquuire them in utero while others can acquire them through the environment. Often, worms are too small to be visible without the aid of a microscope and lab analysis. We recommend bi-annual fecal testing to ensure your pet’s health and recommend a monthly preventative such as Interceptor.

 

Dentistry

More than 85% of dogs and cats that are at least 4 years of age have a condition in which bacteria attacks gum tissue. This condition is called periodontal disease. Although this condition is treatable when caught early, if left untreated can cause serious damage to organs which may result in death. Periodontal disease is preventable; the key to your pet’s oral health is professional veterinary dental care along with a good home dental routine. Pets can live a longer and healthier life if oral health can be managed and maintained throughout their lives.

As with humans, dental hygiene is a critical part of your pet’s overall health. Dental decay and gum infections are often hard for owner’s to detect. As part of your pet’s annual exam, our doctors will recommend the best treatment plan for your pet. Along with home oral care, your pet’s teeth may need a professional scaling, polishing and thorough oral exam under sedation to evaluate for any further periodontal therapy. We offer digital dental x-rays for immediate dental images. This state-of-the-art system allows the dental team to identify cavities, hidden dental structures and bone loss under the gumline that can not be detected during a visual exam. Our Ultima 500 II SF Dental Unit allows the team to perform a thorough professional scaling and polishing along with certain exodontics and periodontal surgery and therapy.

 

Puppy & Kitten Care

Your newest family member needs special pediatric veterinary attention. In addition to our pediatric vaccine protocol, our team will give you guidance regarding deworming, heartworm testing and preventative, flea/tick prevention, behavioral training and nutritional recommendations.

 

Spay and Neuter

Spaying and neutering are safe routine surgical procedures that provide many advantages to your pet’s health and help to prevent certain types of diseases. Additionally, spaying and neutering at a young age may alter your pet’s behavior, making them less aggressive which reduces the chances of your pet straying, getting lost, getting hit by a car or getting into a fight.

 

Inoculations

Vaccinations help prevent the spread of fatal and debilitating diseases. Prevention can assure quality of life for your pet at a lower cost than treating the disease.

 

Vaccine Schedules/Titer Testing

Schedules are determined by your pet’s age and the risk of exposure. Our doctors will discuss your risk/exposure factor and set a personalized schedule for your pet. Additionally, we offer Vaccine Titer Testing to clients who wish to ensure that their pet has the proper level of protection with the least amount of vaccine.

 

Dermatology

We will perform skin and ear cytology or skin scrapings to help in diagnosing your pets skin condition for appropriate treatments. Skin and ear bacterial or fungal culture and skin biopsy may also be indicated. Most common skin diseases are caused by infections, (parasites/bacteria/fungus) allergy, or endocrinopthy.

 

Senior Wellness Care

Our pets age more rapidly than we do, and as they grow older, they need more frequent physical examinations. When the disease process is caught early, the treatment is often more effective, less expensive and can increase your pet’s life expectancy. Our program is designed not only to extend the longevity but also the quality of your pet’s life.

 

Veterinary Pharmacy

Our facility maintains a fully stocked pharmacy. Additionally, we carry prescription diets.
