- Wellness exams–The wellness exam is important to ensure the health and early detection of illnesses.
- Routine vaccinations–Each pet is individually evaluated for which vaccines are needed. Our goal is to make sure your pet is adequately protected from disease, compliant with state, county, and local ordinances while avoiding overvaccination.
- Heartworm testing–The American Heartworm Society recommends yearly testing for this life-threatening parasite. Testing and prevention of heartworm disease are less costly and less risky than treatment.
- Fecal or stool check (fecal flotation)—This is important not only for the health or your pet but also the health and well being of your family. The fecal flotation test detects some of the most common intestinal parasites that can infect our pets. Roundworms, hookworms, whipworms, and tapeworms, as well as giardia and coccidia, which are one-celled organisms. Because some parasites are zoonotic (can infect humans as well as animals), detection and treatment for roundworms, hookworms, and giardia can help avoid infection of you or your family.
Surgery / Anesthesia
We understand that bringing your pet in for any kind of anesthetized procedure is stressful for not only you but your pet as well. That is why we take pride in staying consistent with and adhering to the high standard of care and quality of service required of the American Animal Hospital Association (AAHA). Being an AAHA-accredited hospital, you can be sure to expect the very best from us. Because we are also a
Every patient admitted into our hospital receives a full physical examination before the beginning of any procedure. Our doctors highly recommend pre-anesthetic bloodwork and in some cases, especially patients over the age of 7, require it. With our own on-site lab, you can rest assured that the bloodwork your pet needs will be able to be run and evaluated the same day as your pet’s procedure. Once a physical exam is completed and bloodwork evaluated, your pet’s pre-anesthetic medications will be chosen and administered. Before being intubated for anesthesia, we establish access to a vein by placing an IV (intravenous) catheter. You may notice a shaved spot on one of their front legs at pick up. As soon as your pet is intubated and anesthesia is started, your pet will start receiving fluids intravenously and be immediately connected to all our monitoring equipment. This equipment allows us to monitor and record heart and respiration rates, ECG, pulseOx (oxygen saturation of the blood), and blood pressure. We rely heavily on our equipment, but even more so on our staff. Our veterinary assistants/technicians will also be personally monitoring all of your pet’s vital signs and have been trained to know what changes mean. Your pet will always have a veterinary assistant/technician with them before, during and after their procedure.
We know that your pets mean the world to you and we want you to know they mean the world to us. We are happy to offer text and picture message updates throughout the day to help ease some of your worries. Please feel free to contact one of our staff members directly should you have further questions. We are happy to help!

MLS Laser Therapy
When a physical condition or injury affects your pet’s mobility or quality of life, there is one goal: A rapid return to every-day activities. Our Clinic is proud to be on the medical technological forefront by offering MLS Laser Therapy. We have invested in the very best technology as a key component of our continuing quest to offer you the finest in health care for your pet!
Laser therapy is a non-invasive, drug-free alternative for managing pain. MLS Laser therapy has been cleared by the FDA for use in both the Veterinary and Medical fields. It is proven safe and effective for treating many debilitating pain conditions. And there are no known side-effects!
MLS Laser Therapy uses specific wavelengths of light that have a strong anti-inflammatory, anti-edema effect on tissues that are exposed to the laser. Painful conditions accompanied by swelling or inflammation benefit from this technology. Photons of laser energy penetrate deeply into tissue and accelerate cellular reproduction and growth. As a result of exposure to the MLS Laser, the cells of tendons, ligaments, and muscles repair themselves faster. As inflammation is reduced pain subsides very quickly. In simple terms, laser energy kick-starts the healing process, thereby speeding recovery.
Get your loved one back to pain-free health more quickly with MLS Laser Therapy!
