We offer a wide variety of services, ranging from yearly wellness exams to surgical procedures.
We provide a wide variety of surgical procedures ranging from routine spays and neuters, some orthopedics, mass removals and many others. If you feel your pet needs one of our surgical procedures please call our office to schedule a pre-op appointment! We offer some procedures to be completed with a surgical lase, like Entropion correction (where the eye-lid turns into the eye).
Our Vet Assistants/Techs clean your pets teeth using an ultrasonic cleaner so they are able to scale the teeth and get under the gum line where tarter and bacteria hide. Doctors pull and suture any teeth that may need to come out. Dental procedures do require general anesthesia for your pet, unfortunately they won't sit still and say "ahhh"! We understand that anesthesia can be frightening, but we recommend pre-anesthetic blood work and an IV catheter and fluids while under anesthesia. This is recommended on all of our patients and required on any patient 6 years and up.
Radiology, also known as x-rays, is a service that we offer for a number of reasons. Radiology can be used to diagnose broken bones, obstructions, lung and heart problems, arthritis and much more! Your pet's Veterinarian may recommend x-ray's for your pet if they are experiencing any of the above symptoms.
Wellness exams are highly recommended once a year on all our furry friends and required in order to purchase any prescription medication. Wellness exams typically consist of your pets annual exam, vaccinations, heartworm tests, fecals and getting your pets preventives together. Wellness exams cover a full physical--from head to tail!

Recommendations From Our Vets
- Heartworm testing is required annually to keep your pet on preventative. Our Veterinarians recommend that heartworm medications be given year round. They recommend this because heartworm treatment is painful and expensive, and it's much cheaper to prevent then it is to treat. Even in the fall and winter mosquitoes can be present as our winters can be mild. Heartworm medications come in many forms to make your life easier when it comes to giving the preventatives. Please call our office and speak to one of our team members if you have any questions or want more information.
- Our Veterinarians recommend annual exams because dogs and cats age much faster then humans. Different things can change within a year and it's nice for your pet to have a check up. Having a yearly exam also allows your pet to start flea/tick medications without being seen again.
- We recommend every patient have blood work at some point in their life before reaching the age of 6. This allows us to have good starting markers to compare to in the future. At 6 years of age a pet is considered geriatric and we highly recommend routine blood work for healthy patients yearly, and blood work for patients on any medications every 6 to 12 months depending on medications and Doctors recommendation.
- Any patient that is undergoing a surgical procedure is encouraged to have blood work prior to the procedure to make sure all internal organs are functioning properly and can handle the anesthesia. We also highly encourage IV fluids during the procedure to regulate blood pressure, keep the patient hydrated, and in case of an emergency we already have a vein to administer medications.
- Any patient 6 years or older is required to have blood work prior to surgery to make sure all internal organs are functioning properly and can handle the anesthesia. We also require IV fluids during the procedure to regulate blood pressure, keep the patient hydrated, and in case of an emergency we already have a vein to administer medications.
