Services
 

Because of the shorter lifespan of our pets, we stress the importance of an annual physical examination. Thorough check-ups and preventive care can help alleviate serious health problems. We offer a wide range of veterinary services to keep your companions feeling their best:

Diagnostic and Therapeutic Services:  Our hospital is equipped to provide diagnostic and therapeutic services to care for your pets' complete health care needs.  
      
Surgical Services:  Our fully equipped surgical suite provides for the performance of a wide variety of surgical procedures as well as the use of state-of-the-art anesthesia/patient monitors.  We are also very proud to offer Laser surgery for your pet's benefit.
   
Anesthesia:  We utilize the safest available anesthetics to provide an extra margin of safety, especially for our older or high-risk patients. Using the most modern equipment, the patient's vital signs are monitored during all anesthetic procedures.
    
Specialist consults:  We offer in-hospital referrals to specialists who perform ultrasound, endoscopy, opthalmology, dermatology, neurology and oncology consults to help us with the diagnosis of more complicated cases.
   
Radiology Services:  Our on-site, modern radiology equipment provides high quality radiographs to aid in the quick diagnosis of many disorders.

Boarding and Daycare:  We provide dog and cat boarding, on separate floors, as a service to our clients. The cats are kept in "condos" that have heated floors, separate individual "bathrooms", and clear cage backs to watch the birds outside. The dogs are housed in large runs and allowed outside in large fenced "playgrounds."  All boarders receive personal attention from our caring staff. Pets may be dropped off and picked up during regular business hours Monday through Saturday and also on Sunday morning.  Dog daycare is offered M-F during normal business hours.

Bathing:  Routine and therapeutic bathing services are available,as well as our self service dog wash where owners bathe their own pet in an elevated professional bathing tub and therefore save their back and knees as well as the "bathroom mess".

Electrocardiography Services:
  We provide ECG services on-site as well as consultations with cardiology specialists.
   
Dentistry:  Our dental services include teeth cleaning and polishing, digital dental radiographs, tooth extractions and minor oral surgery.
   
Laboratory:  Our in-house laboratory facilities provide for serum chemistry, hematology, serology, urinalysis and parasite testing. We also utilize commercial veterinary laboratories for specialized diagnostics and consultations.
    
Permanent identification: We recommend and provide microchip identification.
    
Pharmacy:  We maintain a complete inventory of pharmaceuticals, shampoos, flea/tick control products and heartworm preventatives to meet the needs of your pet. We also carry a full line of prescription diets.
   
Individualized Flea and Tick Control Programs:  We develop programs for the specific needs of your pet and your own particular environmental situation. We will review with you the best ways to control fleas and/or ticks.

Dietary Counseling:
  We will provide guidance regarding your pet's nutritional needs for each life stage, including dietary requirements for growth, weight maintenance and performance.
