Services We Provide:
The key to a healthy and happy life is through preventative care. We promote and encourage our clients to bring their pets in for annual complete examinations, weight checks, proper vaccinations, parasite screenings, and parasite prevention. We can also microchip your pet in case they get lost, any shelter or veterinarian with a scanner can identify them and notify the owners.
We have an extensive in-house laboratory that allows us to perform pre-anesthetic or diagnostic screenings. The benefit here is that you will not have to wait for results from an outside lab. We encourage pre-emptive blood work screening in our senior companions to help us to anticipate and stay ahead of some conditions that will come in later years of pet’s lives.
We offer a complete inventory of medication, supplements, medicated shampoos, heartworm preventatives, and flea and tick programs for your pet. We also carry a full line of specialized veterinary diets tailored for your dog or cat’s specific medical condition.
We feature a state-of-the-art surgical suite that we utilize for many surgical procedures such as spaying and neutering, among others.
We use the safest available anesthetics to provide safety for our patients. We monitor each patient’s vital signs during every anesthetic procedure. We utilize Blood pressure, SPO2, ETco2, and ECG to monitor the health of patients while under anesthesia. We are also mindful of keeping them warm during procedures with the use of warm air and water circulating blankets.
We offer high-quality digital x-rays, which dramatically reduces the amount of radiation your pet is exposed to. Because they are digital, we receive the image much faster, and it can be distributed to a specialist via the internet if needed.
Ultrasound and Echocardiographic Procedures
Ultrasound and echocardiographic procedures provide a non-invasive way to look at the organs as they function in your pet. This provides valuable information for the diagnosis and treatment of numerous diseases, often with no sedation required.
Preventative dental care can help your pet live a happy, healthy life. We recommend at age 3, dogs and cats should have a complete dental prophylaxis performed at least once per year. We have the capability of taking dental x-rays to identify problems beneath the gum line, an area where most of pets dental issues are lurking.
