Keeping your pet healthy is important to us.
Our Patients: Dogs & Cats
If your pet needs medical assistance, you can feel confident turning to us for such. Our knowledgeable team and modern facilities are equipped to handle a wide variety of conditions, including emergencies. We can preform many diagnostic procedures in house meaning you can often get timely answers and the ability to treat your pet quickly. In some cases, your pet may require hospitalization and further diagnostics which we are equipped to handle.
Imagine what your mouth would feel like if you never brushed your teeth or went to the dentist. For many dogs and cats, this is the painful reality. Dental (or periodontal) disease is the most frequently diagnosed health problem in pets.
Even if your dog doesn’t have symptoms, we recommend that you have a veterinarian evaluate your pets dental health at least once per year, as bacteria and food debris accumulating on teeth can lead to deterioration of the teeth and result in irreversible periodontal disease and tooth loss. Dental disease can also affect other organs in the body.
Schedule your pets dental exam today! We can also show you how to brush your pets teeth and recommend foods and treats that will help combat plaque and tartar buildup.
A simple way you can help keep your pet health is by protecting him or her against parasites. Heartworms, fleas, ticks and other internal and external parasites are much more than just pests; they can cause life threatening conditions in your pet and can cause severe and potentially fatal health problems for you and your family. Our team will recommend the best preventative regimen for your pet, based on lifestyle and risk factors. We can also provide expert advice on keeping your whole house safe from parasite infection.

Our experienced veterinarians provide many surgical services at our hospital, ranging from routine to advanced procedures. Because we want to ensure that our patients receive the best possible outcome, we will occasionally refer them to specialists that are board-certified veterinary surgeons to perform complex procedures when advanced training or equipment will be beneficial. Our veterinary team takes every precaution so that your pet receives the highest quality care. We perform a physical exam and preanesthetic testing before surgery, monitor your pet during surgery, and provide appropriate pain medication to keep your pet comfortable during recovery.
Annual Exam and Vaccination Programs
One of the best things you can do for your pet is to keep them healthy, and one of the easiest and least expensive ways to do that is to bring them in for regular exams and vaccinations. Dogs and cats age faster than people, so significant changes in your pets health can happen in a short time. Annual exams allow us to diagnose diseases and conditions early, when they are easier to treat or manage. Often, we can help prevent disease entirely, just by ensuring that your pet has received appropriate vaccinations and preventatives. We recommend that healthy adult dogs and cats visit us once per year. Puppies, kittens and senior pets or pets with health issues will need more frequent checkups. We will work with you on creating a plan including appropriate vaccination and prevention protocol specifically for your pet.

Microchip Pet Identification
Imagine if your pet got lost. You would want them to have the best chance of getting home. With microchipping you can. It is a safe and permanent way to identify your pet if they become lost. It is about the size of a grain of rice that is placed just under the loose skin at the back of the neck. When a lost pet is found, veterinary teams will use a handheld microchip scanner to check for a chip. If the pet has one, it will transmit the ID number to the scanner and the team can call the manufacturer to retrieve the pet owners contact information to let them know their pet has been found.
Please contact us to schedule an appointment to microchip your pet. Although we hope a pet never becomes lost, we want you to be prepared if they do.
