Preventative health care

The time and effort invested in a pet's health has rewards for both the animal and the owners. Our recommendations are designed specifically for your pet and include: comprehensive physical exam; a dental checkup; internal parasite testing; heartworm and flea control; microchipping; spay and neuter; and specialized blood tests for all life stages.


Surgical services and facilities include: fully trained veterinary and technical staff to ensure the safest, most efficient, state-of-the-art procedures for your pet; specifically designed for aseptic surgery featuring ISO fluorane anesthesia, ECG, Pulse oximetry, respiratory monitors, patient circulating warming blankets and temperature monitoring. We are also equipped for various types of fracture repair, cruciate ligament injuries, canine hip dysplasia screening, juvenile pubic symphysiodesis (JPS surgery), femoral head ostectomy, and luxating patella surgeries.

Pre-Surgical Policy

Patients having surgery should have no food after 10 p.m. the night before the procedure (water is fine). We require pre-anesthetic blood work with our surgeries and encourage owners with older animals to do more extensive testing. Surgical check-in is between 7:30-8:00 a.m. At that time, we will weigh the patient and one of our technicians will meet with the owner to discuss the surgery and answer any questions. The owner is required to sign a surgery consent form.

Appointment Policy

We work on an appointment basis. Emergency walk-ins during business hours taken as needed.

Estimates for anticipated procedures may be provided prior to admission. It is customary to pay for veterinary services upon their completion, however on an as-needed basis, for extensive services/treatments we will work with the individual client to come up with an agreeable payment plan.
