Meet Our Team

Our services include:

  • Routine health exams – We recommend that all pets be seen for a yearly health exam, during which we can answer all of your health questions.
  • Vaccinations – Vaccines are a vital part of ensuring a healthy start in the life of your puppy or kitten, and in the continued health of your dog or cat.
  • Preventative health measures – There are many things we can advise you on to help your pet live a long, full and healthy life. These can include but are not limited to diet, exercise, and environment. 
  • Dental cleanings – Many pet owners do not realize animals need dental care just like we do. A regular regimen of brushing teeth and dental cleaning will prevent future mouth problems and can even prevent other health issues from occurring.
  • In-house diagnostics and reference lab services – Whether for routine screening purposes or used for diagnosing an illness, bloodwork and other diagnostics are used as tools in managing the disease.
  • Digital radiographs –Used to assess for disease in the chest and abdomen, as well as assessing the bones of the skeleton.
  • Permanent identification – If your pet is ever lost, a microchip or tattoo can help return them to you quickly.
  • Routine and non-routine Surgeries – We offer a complete series of surgical procedures and make sure your pet is comfortable throughout his/her stay with us.
  • We also carry a large selection of veterinary prescription diets including Royal Canin, Hill’s and Purina and a large selection of flea, tick, and heartworm prevention medications. Through our distribution centers, we are able to order in your preferred diet and medication.
