We offer a wide range of surgical procedures, including spay and neuter, soft tissue surgery and other specialty procedures. Our surgical suite is equipped with sevoflurane gas anesthesia, monitoring devices and a patient warming pad. We have a technician exclusively monitoring each patient for the entire surgical procedure and recovery.
We offer hospitalization for our unwell patients. Each patient is assessed multiple times per day and housed in an area where they are easily visualized. We have an in-house laboratory to provide us immediate results on testing to ensure your pets continued health.
We offer routine physical examinations for all life stages of your pet. Preventing diseases before they can happen is easy and most cost effective. We will talk about an individualized plan for your pet that includes vaccinations, parasite testing, education and of course, some loving. We strongly encourage yearly bloodwork panels for each patient to be able to detect, and then manage any underlying conditions.
We have a separate examination room for dogs and cats to try to minimize as much stress to your pet as possible.
Dental disease is one of the most common medical conditions. Over 80% of pets have active dental disease by the age of 3. The signs of dental disease are not always obvious, so it is important to have a veterinary examination, at least yearly.
Signs you can look for in your pet include:
Dental disease can also lead to other systemic problems. Bacteria from the mouth can enter into the bloodstream and can affect your pets’ heart, kidney, and liver. The good news is all of this can be prevented with routine dental care.
We offer products for at-home dental care, such as toothbrushes, toothpaste, and dental chews. We also provide dental prophylaxis care under anesthesia. We will evaluate each tooth, clean and polish healthy teeth and extract any teeth that are unhealthy. We have a dental suite with a high-speed dental unit.
We have a full-time grooming service. Our grooming fee includes a bath, brushing/styling, nail trimming, ear cleaning and anal gland expression. We offer other specialized treatments, including Furminator treatments, special requests, and sedation grooming. We want grooming to be a good experience for you and your pet. Our groomer loves to make your pet look and feel great!
