Preventative Health Care
Regular wellness visits including physical exams, vaccinations, screening tests and preventive medications are vital to helping your pet lead a long and happy life. We believe in using a customized risk assessment to develop a health and vaccination schedule for your pet. Your pet is a unique individual and we will treat him that way. After a complete physical exam, the doctor will combine the exam findings along with your pet’s age, breed, and lifestyle. From all of this information we will assess your pet’s risk of potential disease and develop a preventive health care and vaccination plan that is best for your pet.
All Ages Pet Care
From puppies and kittens to senior pets, we love them all. Each life stage comes with its own set of unique health concerns and challenges. We will help guide you through the journey to help keep your pet happy and healthy at any age.
[maxbutton name=”Learn More Dental”]
Your pet’s teeth are very important to his or her overall health. Periodontal disease is the most common clinical condition in adult dogs and over 80% of pets over the age of 3 have active dental disease. We have many options to help you prevent dental disease through at home dental care. When the time comes that your pet needs professional dental care we offer full service dental cleanings and extractions as well as referral for dental radiographs and advanced procedures such as root canals and crown restorations.
Allergy Diagnosis and Management
Many pets can suffer from allergies to food, indoor and outdoor environmental allergens, and fleas. No two pets are the same, so it can be confusing to figure out what your pet is allergic to and what treatments may help to best manage the symptoms. We understand this and are dedicated to helping you solve this puzzle in order to keep your pet comfortable.

Weight Management and Nutrition Counseling
It is estimated that over 50% of pets in America are overweight or obese. We know how difficult the “battle of the bulge” can be so we are here to help. We offer body condition assessments, customized calorie counts and weight loss plans. We even have prescription diets available to help get your pet down to a healthy weight.
We have a full in-house laboratory to help us figure out what is wrong when your pet isn’t feeling well. We also use laboratory tests to detect disease early before they get sick. We also have high quality digital x-rays that give us results in seconds. In some cases where advanced testing is needed we use high quality reference laboratories. A doctor will always review your pet’s test results and communicate with you to provide the highest level of care with speed and accuracy.

Soft Tissue and Orthopedic Surgery
Our doctors are well trained to provide most soft tissue and orthopedic surgical options. We commonly perform neuters, ovariohysterectomies (spay), tumor removals, and abdominal surgeries. Some of our doctors are also trained in orthopedic surgery including treatment for luxating patellas, torn cruciate ligaments, hip dysplasia and arthritis, as well as some fracture repairs.
Therapeutic Laser Treatments
Laser therapy is an FDA cleared treatment that reduces inflammation resulting in a reduction of pain. It is a safe, fast, painless, drug-free alternative treatment for many conditions such as acute pain, strains, sprains, arthritis, cuts, wounds, and other skin conditions.
