Our Wellness programs are designed specifically for your pet and include: Comprehensive physical exam; internal parasite testing; heartworm and flea control; vaccination program; spay and neuter; and specialized blood tests for all life stages.
    
Euthanasia Services:  Saying goodbye to a long-time friend is painful. We will work with clients to ensure your pet's comfort and dignity. Decisions must be made on how to appropriately honor your pet in keeping with the feelings of your family. We offer a variety of options for euthanasia and cremation.  Cremains (the cremated ashes) can be placed in a decorative container and placed in the home, or buried in a special spot on your property. You may choose to scatter the ashes in a special area where your pet loved to roam.
   
Radiology Services:  Our on-site, modern X-ray equipment provides high quality radiographs to aid in the quick diagnosis of many disorders.

Ultrasound Services:  This non-invasive, state-of-the-art technology uses sound waves to painlessly examine specific internal organs. When appropriate for your pet's circumstance, we can use the ultrasound as an added tool in diagnosing the cause of illness. We can also assess the extent of organ damage that may be occurring secondary to certain diseases. We can currently look at all of the abdominal cavity, including the liver, spleen, stomach, intestines, kidneys and bladder. Ultrasonography is especially indispensable when we suspect a neoplastic (cancer) disease may be affecting your pet. Pregnancy exams and ultrasound of the heart are also available.
   
Dentistry: Regular professional cleaning is important to maintaining your pet's teeth. We use modern and safe ultrasound to clean each tooth thoroughly - above and below the gum line. All teeth are x-rayed to detect disease below the gum line. Trained and licensed veterinary technicians polish teeth to create a smooth, lustrous tooth surface more resistant to plaque buildup. Fluoride treatments help strengthen enamel and reduce tooth sensitivity.
   
Laboratory:  Our in-house laboratory facilities provide for serum chemistry, hematology, serology, urinalysis and parasite testing. We also utilize commercial veterinary laboratories for specialized diagnostics and consultations.
    
Permanent identification: Microchips have helped reunite thousands of pets with their families. We offer the Datamars microchip system of identification, which is widely used and accepted as a means of uniquely identifying your animal.  We also will tattoo your pet if requested, if your pet is placed under anesthesia for a surgical procedure.
    
Pharmacy:  We maintain a complete inventory of pharmaceuticals, Shampoos, flea and tick control products and heartworm preventatives to meet the needs of your pet. We also carry a full line of prescription diets.
   
Individualized Flea Control Programs:  We develop programs for the specific needs of your pet and your own particular environmental situation. We will review with you the best ways to control fleas in your house, in your yard and on your pet.

Dietary Counseling:  We will 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 advice regarding the correction of problems such as excessive barking, chewing, spraying, scratching, digging, house soiling and aggression.

Boarding:  Pets are like our children ? we feed, nurture and lavish attention on them. Our highly qualified kennel attendants do the same when you can't be there. We provide tender loving care (such as brushing and cuddling), and supervised outdoor playtime to keep them happy and active.

Bathing:  Routine and therapeutic bathing services are available.

Emergency Care:  In any emergency, seconds count. Emergency care is offered during regular business hours. In addition, we use the services of a local, fully staffed emergency center.
