Because of the shorter lifespan of our pets, we stress the importance of an annual physical examination. Thorough check-ups and preventive care can help alleviate serious health problems. We offer a wide range of veterinary services to keep your companions feeling their best:
Surgical Services:  Our state-of-the-art surgical suite provides for the performance of a wide variety of surgical procedures.  Routine operations include spaying, neutering, and growth removals. We also perform more complex soft tissue operations including intestinal and bladder surgeries and perineal urethrostomies.  The most common orthopedic procedures include medial luxating patella, cranial cruciate ligament repairs, and femoral head osteotomies.
Anesthesia:  We utilize one of the safest available anesthetics to provide an extra margin of safety, especially for our older or high-risk patients. Using the most modern equipment, the patient's vital signs are monitored during all anesthetic procedures.
Internal medicine consults: We offer in-hospital referrals to an internal medicine specialist who performs ultrasounds, endoscopic procedures and helps us with the diagnosis of more complicated cases.
Radiology Services:  Our on-site, modern digital X-ray equipment provides high quality radiographs to aid in the diagnosis of many disorders.
Dentistry:  Dental disease is one of the most common problems our pets experience.  Left untreated, your pet's mouth becomes infected and painful.  We provide comprehensive oral care including dental charting, digital dental X-rays, teeth cleaning and polishing, tooth extractions and minor oral surgery.  For clients interested in root canal therapy, we offer referrals to local veterinary dentists.
Laboratory:  Our in-house laboratory facilities provide for serum chemistry, hematology, urinalysis and parasite testing. We also utilize commercial veterinary laboratories for comprehensive diagnostics and consultations.
Permanent identification: We offer microchip implanting and identification.
Pharmacy:  We maintain a complete inventory of pharmaceuticals, vitamins, shampoos, flea and tick control products and heartworm preventatives to meet the needs of your pet. We also carry a full line of prescription diets.
Individualized Tick and Flea Control Programs:  We develop programs for the specific needs of your pet and your own particular environmental situation. We will review with you the best ways to control ticks and fleas in your house, in your yard and on your pet.

Dietary Counseling:  We will provide guidance regarding your pet's nutritional needs for each life stage, including dietary requirements for growth, weight maintenance and performance.
