Routine wellness exams are recommended yearly. These can sometimes find problems that maybe not have been detected previously. As your pet ages, things can change and it's always best to stay ahead of everything to ensure we keep your pets as healthy as possible.
We recommend and offer microchipping of your pet to help ensure that your pet can safely be returned to you in the event that it becomes missing.
We believe that the best way to help keep your pet healthy is keeping them up to date on their vaccines. Vaccines help prevent many diseases, some that can be life threatening.
Routine surgery as well as most emergency surgery is offered. Spay, neuter, declaw, mass removal, intra abdominal surgeries as well as a variety of orthopedic surgeries are available. We also have a traveling surgeon that is able to come in for more intense or complicated surgeries.
Grooming services are available Monday-Friday by appointment only. Please call if you would like to schedule an appointment.
We offer 24 hour emergency call for after hours emergencies for both small and large animals.
Boarding is available for all our clients. We have indoor and outdoor (enclosed within a metal building) kennels available. All dogs are let out 3 times a day to exercise in the fenced in yards.
We provide large animal care both on site and out in the field.
RADIOLOGY AND ULTRASOUND
We offer radiography and Ultrasound services. We also have a radiologist off site that images can be referred to for second opinions and referrals if necessary.
Dental care is very important in preserving your pets teeth and gums. We provide dental cleanings, polishing and extractions (if necessary)
We offer laser therapy. This is a technique in which ultrasonic waves are used to help increase blood supply to an area to help promote healing and decrease inflammation and pain. It can be used for a variety of cases; wound management, arthritis, post op healing, and some chronic conditions.
