Doctor hours are by appointment only.  This allows us to better plan our day to avoid extensive wait times for you and your pet and to be respectful of your time as well.  We would appreciate the courtesy of letting us know if you will be late or are not able to make your scheduled appointment time.

We realize that emergencies do occur during office hours and  will make room in our schedule to accommodate those needs.

Please let us know if you have any special needs or will need help getting you pet in from your car.  We will be more than happy to assist you as needed.

IMMUNIZATION AND WELLNESS CARE

We strive to prevent illness whenever possible. The time and effort invested in wellness exams and consultation has rewards for both pets and owners. A wellness program is designed specifically for your pet’s health and includes a comprehensive physical exam, internal parasite testing, heartworm and flea control, vaccination program, and specialized blood tests for all life stages.

SURGERY

We offer the most advanced surgical techniques and technology. All patients are carefully screened for safety and anesthetics protocols are specifically tailored to your pet. Gas anesthesia and heart and respiratory monitoring are routinely utilized to minimize risks. We are equipped to offer not only routine spays, neuters, and declaws but more advanced orthopedic procedures and soft tissue surgeries as well.

DENTAL CARE

Regular professional cleaning is important to maintaining your pet’s teeth. We use modern and safe ultrasonic cleaning units to clean each tooth thoroughly. A technician polishes teeth to create a smooth, clean tooth surface more resistant to plaque buildup. A veterinarian is involved in each case and examines the mouth and evaluates any area of concern the technician has noted. [See Before/After Photos]  We also offer a variety of products to aid in follow up home care to maintain a clean mouth.
