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:

Dental Care
Imagine what would happen if you didn't care for your teeth regularly. The same basics of dental care also apply to your pet's teeth. Dental disease is the most common disease in dogs and cats! About 85% of dogs and cats have some form of it and are vulnerable to the pain, bad breath and tooth loss that could follow. Chronic infections can spread to the heart, liver, lungs and kidneys, where they can do even more damage.  These problems can be avoided by regular dental checkups and provide dental care at home.  When plaque and tartar are visibly present on your pet's teeth professional cleaning is needed.

We use modern and safe ultrasonic scaler to clean each tooth thoroughly, above and below the gum line. Whole mouth digital radiographs are taken for a thorough dental evaluation.  Radiographs are used to determine the extent of periodontal disease, allowing us to see bone loss, fractured teeth, retained roots, and resorptive lesion of the teeth.  Our highly qualified technicians chart each tooth of the patient, clean and polish the teeth to create a smooth tooth surface for more resistance to plaque buildup, and perform fluoride treatments help strengthen enamel and reduce tooth sensitivity.

Our canine and feline senior wellness programs provide a proactive, comprehensive health care platform that addresses the older patient's special needs. This specialized medical service is based on two premises; first, there are fundamental differences in the specific diseases, behavior problems, and nutritional needs of the older pet; second, prevention, early detection, and timely intervention of medical problems, or diseases, can have a significant impact on the longevity, and quality of life, of your older companion.

In Clinic Laboratory Services

Our in house laboratory equipment is very useful for emergencies, medication monitoring, organ function monitoring, and pre-surgical screening. The tests we can perform are blood chemistries, CBC?s, and electrolytes. Blood chemistries evaluate organ function, electrolyte status, hormone levels and more. They are important in evaluating your pet?s base line health status. These tests are also important for older pets, pets with vomiting and diarrhea, toxin exposure and pets receiving long-term medications. CBC?s or complete blood count is the most common test performed on pets and people. A complete blood count or CBC gives information on hydration status, anemia, infection, clotting ability, and immune system function. This test is essential for pets with fevers, vomiting, diarrhea, weakness, pale gums, or loss of appetite. We perform other in house tests such as: fecal exams, heartworm and tick-borne disease test, Leukemia/FIV test, parvovirus test, and more.

When your pet requires more in-depth testing, blood work is sent to our reference laboratory, Idexx. Most of the test results are received overnight and available to our doctors the following day. Depending on the test(s) requested, results may require a longer length of time.

Vetsuite_Img_54089Preventive and Wellness Care

Pets are very important to their owners, providing them not only with happiness and unselfish loyalty, but also with companionship, physical contact, a focus of attention, protection, and a stimulus for exercise. Preventive care is the most important component of health care in all of the life stages for both humans and animals in maintaining and prolonging a high quality of life. Pets today have an increased life expectancy primarily due to advances in veterinary medical care and nutrition, highly effective vaccination and heartworm prevention programs and better care provided by more informed pet owners.

Our doctors strive to prevent illness whenever possible and embrace wellness and preventive care by recommending yearly comprehensive physical exams, vaccines, internal parasite testing and prevention, heartworm and flea control, specialized blood tests for all life stages, and proper nutrition recommendations. We are here to provide the best care and education to you for your best friend.

Vetsuite_Img_63474Puppy and Kitten Packages

The puppy & kitten wellness vaccination package is designed to provide your puppy or kitten with a health program that not only includes vaccinations, but preventive medicine at an affordable cost. A typical puppy will visit the clinic for well puppy exams 3-4 times, at 3-week intervals. These visits are with veterinarian each time to evaluate and monitor vital organs and development, parasitic prevention, discussions on diets, training, behavior and socialization, dental care, spay and neutering, and many more topics. The next 4-6 months is a critical time for your puppy's development. We want to be part in helping you raise a healthy, well-adjusted member of your household.

Radiology

Radiographs (x-rays) are useful in evaluating a number of areas of your pet's body including musculoskeletal, cardiovascular (cardiopulmonary), gastrointestinal, reproductive and urinary systems. With our new state-of-the-art of digital radiography unit, our hospital is able to take high-quality, digital x-rays of your pet. This advancement in technology allows us to become filmless with improved contrast resolution, image enhancement ability, and reduction of retakes compared to film-screen systems. In addition, the diagnostic quality of digital images is superior to traditional radiographs.

Incorporating a digital system offers numerous advantages for our patients, for our clients, for our employees, and for the environment. By bypassing the laborious chemical processing involved in traditional photographic films, images are available quickly and cleanly. The time spent taking your pets' radiographs is significantly shortened and fewer pictures need to be taken to achieve diagnostic-quality results. This means less stress for your pet, making their experience much more pleasant. Due to their digital format, radiographs can be e-mailed to a veterinary radiology specialist, making consults much easier and faster than by sending them by regular mail.

Finally, digital radiography produces little to no waste since processing chemicals and hard copies are not used, meaning that digital is more environmentally friendly than photographic film.

Pets are like our children- we feed, nurture and lavish attention on them. Our highly qualified wards nurses do the same when you can't be there. Our boarding facility is small and provides our nurses with greater time to spend with each pet. Our wards nurses are qualified to care for your pet that has special needs such as, insulin requirements and other medications. The tender loving care (such as cuddling and long walks) that we provide keeps them cheerful and active.

Diagnostic Blood Testing

Blood tests help our doctors determine your pet?s health status, so we make the best medical decisions. Although performing these tests cannot guarantee that complications won?t occur, it can reduce the risk to your pet and provide you peace of mind. Regardless of age, physical examination and medical history of your pet, we recommend diagnostic testing to identify health problems early and begin any treatment necessary.

Even if your pet is not ill, blood work establishes a baseline that provides important information to monitor your pet's health for the years to come. With a baseline we have a reference point for comparison. This allows us to monitor changes if your pet does become ill or as your pet moves through life stages. Monitoring your pet's health status on a regular basis allows us to differentiate between the normal and abnormal.

If your pet is going to be placed under anesthesia, we strongly recommend pre-anestheic testing. Anesthesia is extremely safe for healthy pets. But, if your pet is not healthy (and sometimes it's hard to tell without testing), complications can occur both during and after the anesthetic procedure. We can minimize potential risk when we know the health status of your pet before administering anesthesia.
