In a perfect world, our pets would live as long as we do! While this is not possible, what we can do is help our pets live the longest, healthiest lives possible.
To this end, we stress the importance of an annual physical examination. Thorough check-ups and preventive care can help alleviate serious health problems. Our hospital is equipped to provide diagnostic and therapeutic services to care for your pets' complete health care needs:
Dogs: Besides the "core" vaccines against Rabies and Distemper/Parvo, we offer vaccinations against Lyme Disease, Kennel Cough, Leptospirosis, and Canine Influenza.
Cats: Besides the "core" vaccines against Rabies and the Feline Upper Respiratory 3-way, we offer vaccines against Feline Leukemia and Hemorrhagic Calicivirus.
Ferrets: We offer Rabies vaccinations for ferrets.
Diagnostic Services: Our in-house laboratory facilities provide for serum chemistry, hematology, serology, urinalysis and parasite testing. Testing for glaucoma and vaginal and ear cytology are also available. We utilize IDEXX's commercial veterinary laboratory for specialized diagnostics, tumor biopsies and expert consultations.
Radiology: Our on-site, modern X-ray equipment provides high quality digital radiograph images to aid in the quick diagnosis of many disorders. Digital X-rays can be burned onto a CD on request (a $10 charge will apply).
Electrocardiography: We provide ECG services on-site as well as remote consultations with off-site cardiology specialists. If your pet needs an echocardiogram (an ultrasound of the heart), we can arrange a referral for you to have this done.
Anesthesia: We utilize the safest available anesthetics, including Sevoflo(tm) gas anesthesia, to provide an extra margin of safety, especially for our older or high-risk patients. State-of-the-art monitoring equipment is available for keeping track of the patient's vital signs during anesthetic procedures. In addition, we offer pre-anesthetic bloodwork to assess the health of your pet's liver and kidneys (the organs primarily responsible for processing anesthetic drugs) prior to surgery.
Dentistry: Our dental services include teeth cleaning and polishing, tooth extractions and minor oral surgery. After your pet's dental procedure ask our technicians about strategies for keeping your pet's teeth clean and healthy - several options are available to fit any lifestyle.
Grooming Services: We offer limited grooming services such as nail trimming, ear cleaning, anal gland expression and trimming of the face, feet and undertail area. Medicated baths and dematting procedures are also available.
Heartworm Prevention: We recommend that all dogs be tested annually for Heartworm disease, Lyme disease, Anaplasmosis, and Ehrlichia canis, all of which are screened for by a single, simple in-house bloodtest with results available in 10 minutes or less. For your dog's protection we recommend year-round maintenance on a monthly heartworm preventive: we have both Heartgard(tm) and Trifexis(tm) (for heartworm and flea prevention) available. These monthly preventives not only prevent Heartworm disease, but also control many intestinal parasites your dog is susceptible to.
Flea/Tick Control: We can counsel you on the best flea and tick control products to meet the specific needs of your pet and your own particular environmental situation.
Pharmacy Services: For your convenience we maintain a complete inventory of pharmaceuticals, medicated shampoos, and dietary supplements to meet the needs of your pet. We also carry a full line of prescription diets.

Dietary Counseling: We can provide guidance regarding your pet's nutritional needs for each life stage, including dietary requirements for growth, weight maintenance and performance.
Behavioral Counseling: We can provide you with advice regarding the correction of problems such as excessive barking, chewing, spraying, scratching, house soiling and separation anxiety. For more serious or recalcitrant behavior issues, we can suggest area trainers or a behavior specialist you can consult.
Emergency Care: If you have an emergency during office hours, please call our office immediately and our staff will advise you on what to do next. If your emergency occurs when we are closed, please call our main telephone number for instructions or click on the "Emergencies" link in the main menu of this website.
