Compassionate care for the pets you love!

Preventative Care

The goal of preventative care is to stay ahead of the game for any possible illnesses that your pet could be exposed to or to catch underlying diseases before they develop into a greater issue.

Many of the diseases that can affect dogs and cats are preventable through proper pet vaccinations. Starting your pet on the right schedule early is one of the keys to a long and healthy life. Vaccines are special proteins that prime the immune system to fight off specific infections. They work in two ways: to reduce the severity of such diseases should they strike or to completely prevent infection.
Internal parasites cause a number of issues if not treated. Poor growth in puppies/kittens can be a result of a large parasite burden.

Internal GI parasites utilize the nutrients in the puppy’s/kitten’s food for their own growth. The puppy’s/kitten’s tend to grow poorly, have poor coat and skin (dry, brittle fur and dry, flaky skin), and certain types of internal parasites can also cause damage to the intestinal tract as they latch on.

Wellness and sick pet exams

We aim to make every visit for your pet as stress-free and pleasant as possible.

Wellness examinations

Routine “Wellness” examinations, even on our healthy pets, is highly recommended. Often these exams are recommended once yearly or more frequently for our senior animals. These visits are an important time for caregivers to bring up any concerns they may have about their pet. A thorough history of how your pet has been doing is taken, and a hands-on full-body exam from the tip of the nose to the tip of the tail is performed by our veterinarians to check for any abnormalities.

Other important components of wellness such as nutrition and behavior are also addressed (check out our nutritional consultation, behavioral consultation services). This allows us to make any recommendations that will help achieve the utmost health and quality of life for your pet. Vaccinations and parasite control are other important components of our yearly visits with your pet – we aim to build individualized vaccine and anti-parasitic protocols depending on each pet’s lifestyle.

sick pet exams

Sick pet exams are needed whenever an unexpected illness or problem arises. If you feel like your pet is not acting like itself, our team is always happy to help. We will ask pertinent questions about the problem and thoroughly examine your pet. After an exam, we can discuss recommendations and options for diagnostic testing and treatment to devise a plan of action that works best for you and your pet.

Soft Tissue Surgery

We provide surgical options in a clean and safe environment. Most importantly, our veterinary team can closely track each animal’s vital condition during surgery.

Soft tissue surgery is a large subject, as it comprises any surgery that is not orthopedic. Procedures can range from simple cyst removals to complex and involved operations. Areas covered include ear, nose, throat, cardiothoracic, hepatic, gastrointestinal, urogenital, skin reconstructive, and oncological surgeries.

Dentals with digital dental radiology

Just as it’s important for you to see a dentist regularly, it’s important for animals as well. Your pet’s oral health is directly connected to their overall health. Signs of dental disease include bad breath, loose, broken, or missing teeth, yellow or brown teeth, red, inflamed, or bleeding gums, difficulty or pain when chewing, pawing at the mouth, and excessive drooling. If you notice any of these symptoms, please contact our team, and we’ll be happy to help.

We are proud that we have the most up-to-date equipment to treat dental disease, including dental radiology. We are often able to see undetected abscesses, broken teeth, resorbed roots, retained roots, and more, thanks to dental radiographs.

Laser treatment

If your pet experiences a soft tissue injury, chronic pain, or a wound that needs some more help healing, our doctors may add Laser Treatment to your pet’s treatment plan. They are the most popular among veterinarians. Laser Treatment is a clinically proven modality in both human and veterinary medicine.
