Comprehensive Physical Examinations
Fully Equipped Laboratory
There have been many advancements in digital X-ray technology, and we can now manipulate the digital images that we take. This allows us to diagnose issues that may not be seen on a traditional X-ray. Because the X-rays are digital, we can also easily share the images with specialists or other veterinarians we may consult for more difficult cases.
According to the American Veterinary Dental Society, 70% of adult cats and 80% of adult dogs show symptoms of oral disease? Don’t let your pets become part of this statistic!
Just as it’s important for you to see a dentist regularly, it’s important for dogs and cats as well. Your pet’s oral health is directly connected to their overall health. Signs of dental disease include bad breath; loose, broken, or missing teeth; yellow or brown teeth; red, inflamed, or bleeding gums; difficulty or pain when chewing; pawing at the mouth; and excessive drooling. If you notice any of these symptoms, please contact our team and we’ll be happy to help.
Lacerations & Abscess Treatment
It’s important to bring your pets in immediately after a laceration so we may properly clean the wound and avoid any bacteria from entering.
Behavioral Counseling & Treatment
An estimated 59% of cats and 54% of dogs in the United States are overweight or obese. Good nutrition and weight management are key to your pet’s overall health. These healthy habits are created at a young age for your pet, and it’s up to you to help them maintain these habits. Through a good diet and proper exercise, you greatly increase your pet’s chance at a long, healthy life.
Hospice and End of Life Care
Senior Health Care & Diagnostics
Pets are living longer and longer and have often seen us through important milestones in our lives. As they grow older, we owe it to them to make sure that the quality of their life is as good as it can be. Most cats are considered seniors after the age of eight, and dogs can vary by breed but usually become seniors between the age of seven for giant breed dogs to age eight for toy dogs.
Ultrasonography is a type of diagnostic technique that uses ultrasound waves to produce an imaging study. This means that when we perform ultrasonography, we can see internal images of the patient’s body. Ultrasonography is a completely noninvasive, painless way to diagnose and evaluate many common diseases. Ultrasounds also allow us to look at the architecture of internal organs and examine location, size, shape, texture, and blood supply.
Allergy Testing & Treatment
Allergies are a chronic disease that can affect many pets and, indirectly, their owners. There are many treatment options, including medications to cover up allergy symptoms such as antihistamines and steroids. An alternative to these medications is allergy-specific immunotherapy or sublingual immunotherapy, which alters the body’s immune system and makes it more tolerant to any offending pollens or allergens.
Our team is highly skilled and experienced in performing a wide variety of pet surgeries using modern techniques and cutting-edge equipment and always adhering to the strictest standards of safety and care.

Laser therapy has many beneficial uses, including alleviating chronic pain, accelerating healing, and rehabilitation plus much, much more! We are pleased and excited to be able to offer this treatment. After injury or surgery, patients receiving laser therapy have less pain. Their recovery is faster and the quality of healing is better. Laser therapy is one of the few modalities that may not only improve the comfort of patients with osteoarthritis but may also modify the disease process.
The following beneficial effects of laser therapy on cells and tissues have been demonstrated in clinical trials and studies of laser therapy technology:
- Accelerated tissue repair and cell growth
- Faster wound healing
- Reduced fibrous tissue formation
- Anti-pain [Analgesic]
- Improved vascular activity
- Increased metabolic activity
- Improved nerve function
- Trigger and acupuncture points
