OUR SERVICES

Out pets can’t always tell us what’s wrong or what hurts. We have several diagnostic tools at our disposal to help us find the answers.

Your pet is an important part of your family, and when he or she is ill, you want the best medical care available.

The veterinarians and staff at our clinic are ready to provide your pet with cutting edge veterinary medical care. From wellness exams and vaccines to advanced diagnostics and complex surgical procedures, your dog, cat or ferret will receive high quality care at our hospital.

DIAGNOSTICS

Bloodwork

Chemistry - assess organ function
CBC - complete blood count

Urinalysis

Rule out infection and presence of crystals and/or abnormal cells

Fecal

Test for intestinal parasites

Cytology

Needle aspirates and skin scrapes

Histopathology

Biopsy

Radiograph - Digital X-ray

This allows us a peak at the inside of your pet. We can use this to rule out bone fractures/ abnormalities, identify degenerative joint disease (arthritis) and assess organ size/shape.

VACCINATIONS

Vaccinations are important for your pet to prevent disease. Many of these disease are deadly, fortunately many are rarely seen due to our access to these life-saving vaccines. But if pet owners decline to vaccinate their pets, we will see a resurgence of these deadly diseases that will affect our pet populations, especially as we see more and more pet socialization (boarding, grooming, dog parks and doggie day care) and travel. Our vaccine recommendations are given on a case to case basis depending on your lifestyle and your pets chance of exposure.

Canine Core Vaccines

DHPP - distemper, hepatitis, para-influenza, parvovirus

Yearly vet visits are recommended for all pets. There are many conditions that if caught early can be treated and even cured to extend your pet’s life.

DENTAL CARE

Dental care for your pet is very important. Brushing your dog or cat’s teeth is often not a every easy task. Tartar/plaque builds up and traps bacteria in the gum line. The gingivitis that ensues can cause issues with the liver and kidneys, plus deteriorating health of the individual teeth. But what we really notice is the bad breath that accompanies it when we get those puppy kisses. A dental exam is performed with the yearly physical. At that time we can decide what is needed in your pet’s case to promote the best dental health. In some cases at home care is all that is needed ( routine brushing/rinses, dental chews, water additives ). In other cases general anesthesia is required for a full periodontal exam and treatment such as:

Teeth scaling and polish

 Extractions

Oral mass removal/biopsy

Geriatric Care

We want the best for our pets and we want them to live their best life. We can help. As your pet ages you may see changes in their ability to move and wonder if they are experiencing pain or senility. You can use us as a tool to keep your pet comfortable and improve their day to day quality of life.

Nutritional Consults

There are so many choices out there for your pet’s diet. As veterinary professionals we have been educated in what is best your your specific pet. We can advise you in what, when and how much you should feed.

Behavior Consults

Behavior issues are common. Whether it is typical puppy/kitten issues or separation anxiety or dog/cat aggression or inappropriate urinations. These are all things that with the right guidance can be improved and in many cases resolved.
