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.
We provide veterinary care in all areas of internal medicine, including: Cardiology, Ophthalmology, Neurology, Dermatology, Gastroenterology, Oncology, Endocrinology, etc. We are able to refer patients to specialists and in some cases, have specialists come to the hospital.
We provide nail clipping for dogs and cats. Nail trims are complimentary with examinations and surgeries. There is a fee for nail trim only visits. We can also do nail trims with a Dremel tool which leaves the nail shorter and smoother. Sedation can be provided for pets that do not like having their nails trimmed. Please call for appointment.
If travel, thunder, or fireworks upset your pet, he or she may benefit from tranquilization or sedation. While sedated, the animal will stay awake or sleep lightly but can be roused when stimulated. To minimize any potential risk associated with tranquilization or sedation, we need to assess each animal individually before we dispense these medications.
Please contact us if you would like to set up an assessment or discuss sedation with us.
We carry a variety of pet accessories designed for the safety of your pet. Our halter devices assist owners in walking and leading difficult dogs. These halters come with a ‘how to’ lesson from one of our qualified behavior consultants.
Not all toys are safe your pets. We only supply toys we believe are safe for your pet and we have the experience to advise you on these decisions.
We offer a wide variety of specialty and therapeutic diets for all lifestages and disease conditions. We also provide special supplements for general wellness and for acute and chronic disease conditions.
Is your pet overweight but you would still like to give him or her a treat without feeling guilty? We have special calorie-reduced treats that you can give to your pet without worry. We also carry treats that help prevent gum disease.
Veterinary consultation is required for our prescription diet foods and our supplements. Call us to schedule an appointment to discuss your pet’s nutritional needs.
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!
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.
If you or your pet finds veterinary visits stressful or if you would simply prefer a home visit, please call to arrange an appointment at your home. A veterinarian is available most weekdays to do routine and emergency house calls.
We monitor our patients to keep them as safe as possible during procedures that require general anesthesia. A veterinary technician will continually assess your pet’s heart and respiratory rate, blood pressure, and other vital signs to help prevent any anesthetic risk.
Please feel free to ask us about our patient monitoring protocol or any concerns you might have about your pet’s procedure.
