Because of the shorter lifespan of our pets, we stress the importance of an annual physical examination. Thorough check-ups and preventive care can help alleviate serious health problems. We offer a wide range of veterinary services to keep your companions feeling their best:


Diagnostic and Therapeutic Services:  Our hospital is equipped to provide current diagnostic and therapeutic services to care for your pet's complete health care needs.  
Surgical Services:  Our state-of-the-art surgical suite allows us to perform a wide variety of surgical procedures.
Anesthesia:  We utilize the safest available anesthetics to provide an extra margin of safety, especially for our older or high risk patients. Using the most modern equipment, the patient's vital signs are monitored during all anesthetic procedures.

Laser Surgery: All of our feline declaw surgeries are done with a laser.  Laser surgery reduces tissue trauma, bleeding, swelling, and pain.  We also use the laser for other types of surgeries such as dog neuters and tumor excision.  This modern surgical tool has helped us increase the quality of care we provide for our patients.

Endoscopy:  An endoscope is a long flexible tube with a small camera at the tip.  This instrument allows us to look at the inside of the gastrointestinal tract. This advanced tool can be used to remove foreign objects, collect biopsy samples, and diagnose gastrointestinal disorders.
Radiology Services:  Our on-site modern digital X-ray equipment provides high quality radiographs to aid in the quick diagnosis of many disorders.  We frequently consult with board certified radiologists on challenging cases.
Dentistry:  Our dental services include ultrasonic tooth cleaning, scaling, and polishing.  Dental extractions and minor oral surgery are performed as well when needed.


Laboratory:  Our in-house laboratory facilities provide serum chemistry, hematology, serology, urinalysis and parasite testing. We also utilize commercial veterinary laboratories for specialized diagnostics and consultations.
Permanent identification: We offer AVID microchip implantation.
Pharmacy:  We maintain a complete inventory of pharmaceuticals, vitamins, shampoos, flea and tick control products, and heartworm preventatives to meet the needs of your pet. We carry a full line of prescription diets.
Individualized Flea Control Programs:  We will work together to develop a program for the specific needs of your pet and your particular environmental situation. We will review with you the best ways to control fleas in your house, yard, and on your pet.

Dietary Counseling:  We will provide guidance regarding your pet's nutritional needs for each life stage including dietary requirements for growth, weight maintenance, and performance.
Behavioral Counseling:  We can provide advice regarding the correction of problems such as excessive barking, chewing, spraying, scratching, digging, house soiling, and aggression.


Emergency Care:  Please call our main telephone number for instructions on after hours emergencies.
