We encourage all of our clients to participate in preventative oral hygiene programs such as brushing their pet’s teeth daily, dental chews and the like; but there are times when a patient may require in-patient dental procedures under anesthesia to properly manage more severe cases of periodontal and gum disease; a fractured tooth; a tooth root abscess or possibly an extraction.
Dietary and Nutritional Counseling
We carry a full line of prescription diets. Different pets require different diets for optimum health and performance and help manage a variety of medical conditions. Our staff will be happy to help determine which diet is right for your pet.
Diagnostic Services On Site
We have a complete, state of the art in-house diagnostic laboratory that allows us to run everything from routine blood tests; fecal and urinary analysis; and microscopic cytology to more extensive tests to aid in diagnosing a more urgent illness when your family pet is feeling under the weather.
Heartworm and Flea Prevention
Feel free to stop in any time to discuss a prevention program that we all agree may be best suited for you and your pet.
- Heartworm Preventative: Heartworm disease is a deadly but easily preventable disease. We recommend year round preventative be given to cats and dogs.
- Flea/Tick Control: Fleas and ticks carry a number of life threatening diseases which pose a risk to you and your pet. For this reason, we recommend year-round flea and tick control and carry several products which work well in our environment.
Countless beloved pets are lost or stolen every year so we encourage that all pets be identifiable by a microchip which is registered with a national database to increase the number of lost pets reunited with their guardian(s).
Digital radiology allows us to rapidly obtain high-definition x-rays that can be an important diagnostic tool for a variety of patient conditions including lameness; coughing; heart disease; foreign body ingestion; constipation and many other disorders that require more than a physical examination and blood tests to achieve a diagnosis.
Small Animal Medicine and Surgery for Cats and Dogs
We perform everything from spays and neuters to bladder stone removal, lump removals and many other procedures. Every patient is closely monitored using state of the art digital monitors that provide real-time EKG, oxygen levels, blood pressure, respiratory rate and temperature. All of our patients also receive pre-anesthesia blood screening to help us make your pet’s surgical procedure as safe and successful as possible.
Vaccinations are an important part of any preventative health care program. We understand that a vaccine program should be tailored to your pet’s individual situation and we follow the most up-to-date vaccination protocols based on your pets lifestyle and exposure..
K-Laser Class IV therapeutic lasers deliver specific red and near-infrared wavelengths of laser light to induce a photochemical reaction and therapeutic effect. Physiological effects include increased circulation, reduced inflammation, pain reduction and enhanced tissue healing. Laser therapy has been used in Europe since the 1970s and was cleared by the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in 2005.
Wellness and Preventive Medicine
Annual wellness exams for pets are an important part of any preventative health care program. They allow for early detection of many conditions such as heart disease, dental disease, cataracts, diabetes, arthritis, spinal issues and many others; not to mention the best news any guardian can hear from their veterinarian… your pet is both happy and healthy.
