Physical Examinations

The physical examination is one of the most important components of your pet's veterinary care. The veterinarian will examine your pet from head to tail, as well as everything in between.  Physical examinations allow us to  detect any abnormalities that can go undetected at home and potentially lead to serious problems. A complete physical from head to toe to tail includes...

Dentistry

Just like any other member of your family, your pet requires oral care. Although a toothbrush, water additive or dental diet is a great way to care for your pet's oral health they sometimes require a more comprehensive cleaning or extractions. A thorough dental cleaning requires having your pet put under anesthesia to perform dental x-rays and remove tartar from the teeth and under the gum tissue.

Microchip Pet Identification

Microchips are a safe, permanent way of identifying your pet and protect them for a lifetime.  A small rice sized computer chip is placed under the skin in the shoulder area of your pet, much like a vaccination injection. Should your pet go missing and be taken to a veterinary clinic or shelter, your pet will be scanned and identified.

Nutritional Consulting

We offer a wide range of prescription diets which provide optimal levels of key nutrients to support vital organs and help your pet live a long and happy life. We will recommend a diet based on your pet's age, lifestyle or medical condition.

Parasite Prevention

Parasite prevention is a safe and effective way to protect your pet against heartworms, fleas, ticks, as well as other parasites that can cause severe illness in your pet. We offer oral and topical prevention and will recommend a treatment that fits your pet’s lifestyle and risk factor.

Surgical Procedures

We offer a wide range of surgical procedures, ranging from routine spaying and neutering and lumpectomy and exploratory surgeries. We perform a full physical examination and preanesthetic blood work before all of our surgical procedures in order to ensure your pet is healthy enough to undergo anesthesia. We always have a veterinarian and veterinary technician monitoring your pet closely throughout the anesthetic procedure and use IV fluids in order to help your pet stay hydrated and recover faster.

Radiology

We have a full service radiology lab on premises enabling us to speed diagnosis. X-rays are used to create images of your pet's soft tissue, organs and bones. This procedure allows us to detect, diagnose and treat various diseases and injuries such as arthritis, pneumonia, bone tumors and broken bones. We also perform dental x-rays during our dental procedures in order to see what is happening beneath the gum line as most dental diseases occur in the tooth roots.

Ultrasound Imaging

Ultrasound technology is used to create images of your pet's organs such as their liver, kidneys, bladder and pancreas in order to detect any growths, gallstones or blockages.
