Additional Services

Pharmacy

By

For your convenience, we offer an in-house pharmacy so we can meet all your pet’s needs. We provide medications, flea and tick control products, and heartworm preventives—all at competitive prices.

When you order from us, you’ll know that the products you’re purchasing have been stored properly and are approved for use in Canada. And if you have any questions, you can ask any of our staff.

Feel free to pick up your pet’s prescriptions at our clinic or order refills over the phone.

Laboratory Testing

By

Our laboratory is equipped to perform a variety of diagnostic testing procedures. The ability to test your pet’s blood, urine and fecal samples in our lab allows us to treat your pets more quickly and efficiently, as opposed to sending samples to an outside lab and waiting for results.

Pain Management and Control

By

We now know that animals experience pain in much the same way as people. We use our knowledge of pain medication and pain relief strategies to prevent and manage pain in pets, both before and after surgery and in the event of an injury or infection. We can also ease pain caused by chronic disease, such as arthritis.

Ask us about our pain management options and plans, which we will tailor to your pet’s medical condition and individual needs.

Microchip Pet Identification

By

Imagine if your dog or cat got lost. You’d want to give him or her the best chance of getting home. With microchipping, you can.

Microchipping is a safe, permanent way to identify your pet in case he or she becomes lost. A microchip, which is a tiny device about the size and shape of a grain of rice, is placed just under the loose skin at the back of the neck. When a lost dog or cat without an ID tag is found, a veterinarian or veterinary technician will use a handheld microchip scanner to check for a chip. If the pet has one, it will transmit its ID number to the scanner via a low-frequency radio wave. The veterinary hospital or shelter then calls the chip manufacturer, retrieves the pet owner’s contact information, and calls the owner.

Even the most responsible pet owners can’t always guarantee their pet won’t get lost. A leash could break or slip out of your hand, a pet could push through a screen door or window, or a contractor or friend might accidentally leave a door or gate open.

We recommend that you use a microchip, along with a collar and ID tag, to identify your pet. An ID tag is still a reliable identification method. Pets that have tags with current contact information are more likely to not end up in shelters and tend to get home faster than those without tags. However, collars and ID tags aren’t permanent and can be removed (overnight or for grooming); pets can also lose them. With a microchip, your pet will have a much better chance of being identified and returned to you. Pets without microchips that end up in shelters may be adopted out to another family or even euthanized.

Please contact us to schedule an appointment to microchip your pet. Although we hope your pet never becomes lost, we want you to be prepared. We can also suggest a plan to have in place so if your pet does go missing, you’ll be able to act quickly.

We can microchip ferrets, rabbits, birds, and other companion animals, too!

Cat Boarding

By

We have the facilities to provide our clients cats with a comfortable stay while they are away. We will feed any specialized or diets that may be required as well as administer any medications needed. Unfortunatley we do not have the proper facilities for boarding dogs.

All cats coming to the hospital for boarding must be fully vaccinated.

You will have the added benefit of knowing that if your animal experiences any illness while you’re away, it will be promptly and competently addressed by one of our clinicians.

For a tour of our boarding facilities, please feel free to drop by anytime or call to set up a time.

To set up dates for boarding please contact our office.
