Services
 

We offer a wide range of veterinary services to keep your companions feeling their best:

Annual checkups and routine vaccinations: Because of the shorter lifespan of our pets, we stress the importance of an annual physical examination. Thorough check-ups and preventive care spot the early stages of disease and this can help alleviate serious health problems. As your pet gets older, its need for annual vaccination goes down, but its need for the annual exam increases.

Diagnostic and Therapeutic Services:  Our hospital is equipped to provide diagnostic and therapeutic services to care for your pets' complete health care needs.  
      
Surgical Services:  We can perform a variety of surgical procedures here. Some examples include, spaying and neutering, removal of tumors, abdominal surgeries, and repairing lacerations.  If your pet needs a more a complex surgical procedure, we work closely with several referral facilities who have surgical specialists on staff.
   
Anesthesia:  We utilize the safest available anesthetics, especially for our older or high-risk patients. Trained anesthesia technicians are continually monitoring the patient's vital signs during all anesthetic procedures.
    
Radiology Services:  Our on-site, modern digital X-ray equipment provides high quality radiographs to aid in the quick diagnosis of many disorders.
   
Dentistry:  Our dental services use the most modern equipment to perform professional teeth cleaning and polishing, necessary tooth extractions, and minor oral surgery.

Pharmacy:  We maintain a complete inventory of pharmaceuticals, nutriceuticals, flea and tick control products, and heartworm preventatives to meet the needs of your pet. We also carry a full line of prescription diets.
