Preventative Medicine

Pets should have routine physical examinations in order to keep them happy and healthy! Preventative medicine is important because it allows us to find and treat problems or conditions early on, when they are much easier (and less costly!) to treat. During your dog or cat’s examination, we will thoroughly check your pet’s different biological systems, such as their vascular (heart), respiratory (lungs), skin, eyes, ears, and mouth. This also helps us establish a baseline of health for your pet, so that it will be much easier for us to notice if/when something becomes irregular.


Your dog or cat’s dental health is actually an incredibly important contributor to their overall health and well-being. Dental problems not only cause pain (remember, pets usually can’t tell us they’re in pain!), butcan actually lead to serious health complications with their heart, liver or kidneys. Good oral health starts with regular dental cleaning and polishing, which we perform routinely and safely. Importantly, we also clean under the gum line, where periodontal disease lurks. We can also perform tooth extractions for pets with more advanced periodontal disease.

Internal Medicine

When a pet suffers from a serious health condition, it is vitally important that we can accurately diagnose and begin treatment as early as possible. Our expert staff can screen for and diagnose diseases such asdiabetes, endocrine diseases including hypothyroidism, Cushing’s and Addison’s Disease, kidney and liver disease, heart disease and cancer.


We will advise you on which vaccinations are necessary for your dog or cat. This will be based on the new AVMA and AAHA guidelines. Your pet’s vaccination plan will be determined based on any unique riskfactors that they have due to lifestyle or environment.

Surgical Suite

Our surgical suite is state-of-the-art, and our chief priority is your pet’s safety and well-being. We perform routine surgeries such as spay and neuters, soft tissue surgeries including tumor removal,laceration repair, C-sections, gastrointestinal procedures, and others as needed. Surgeries are done with gas anesthesia with state-of-the-art monitoring including EKG, Blood Pressure, Pulse Ox, Temperature and Respiratory Monitors. Circulating water heaters and fluid warmers are also used.

Indoor Boarding

Our boarding facilities are state-of-the-art, and are fully air conditioned and heated. They are equipped with a fenced backyard and separate facilities for cats. Pets are fed with Science Diet unless otherwise  requested.

Behavioral Counseling

Many pets show behavioral difficulties that can present real problems for the pet and the household. Fortunately, these behavioral issues are almost always able to be changed through proper training. Wecan help with problems such as house training and crate training, to separation anxiety and aggression problems.

Cold Laser Therapy

Laser therapy is a revolutionary treatment that is increasingly being used to accelerate healing and reduce pain and inflammation. It is a non-invasive and totally safe procedure that harnesses light (photons) in order to stimulate blood flow and cell regeneration. It can be used to treat a wide range of conditions.

Diagnostic Capabilities

Advanced diagnostic capabilities are important in order to pinpoint issues in your pet’s health and allow us to create smart and effective treatment plans. We maintain an In-House laboratory so that we can perform CBC’s, Complete Blood Profiles, Acid – Base testing and Clotting profiles.

Isolation Facilities

Some health conditions require careful quarantine in order to prevent the spread of disease during treatment. We provide isolation facilities outside of the clinic to prevent the spread of contagious diseases such as Parvovirus.


Medicated bathing can be used to effectively treat flea and tick problems. Hydrotherapy tubes provide a relaxing or medicated bath for your pet.

Euthanasia and Hospice Care

This is always such a difficult time. We believe it is our duty to help your pet with dignity and compassion. We take great care to ease any pain and suffering that your pet is experiencing, and will   provide an environment that is private and accommodating for you. We have all lost pets, so we know how hard it is. A gentle and graceful goodbye is sometimes the most compassionate thing we can do for our beloved companions.
