Services

Preventative Care

  • Vaccinations: Core vaccines, rabies, distemper, letpo, Bordetella, influenza, feline leukemia.
  • Examinations: Recommended semi-annually or annually, these checkups are preventative medicine and will help to ensure that your pet remains in good health all year round. Exams typically inspect: eyes, ears, mouth, heart, respiratory, abdomen, skin and coat.
  • Spaying / Neutering: An important procedure to help control the pet population as well as the health of your dog. Spaying and neutering reduces (or eliminates) a number of health concerns – mammary and ovarian cancers, testicular cancer, and more – which can be expensive and difficult to treat.
  • Dental care: This area of pet care is often overlooked by cat and dog owners. Professional cleaning and X-ray screenings are essential to avoiding various periodontal diseases which can be costly to you and painful for your pet. Dental care truly begins in the home with daily brushing of your pet's teeth. Consult the Veterinary Oral Health Council (VOHC) for more information on products and food that promote oral health in dogs and cats.

Specialized Diagnostic

  • Digital X-ray: A common procedure done on pets to diagnose a variety of problems such as bone fractures, masses (tumors), obstructions, bladder stones, hip dysplasia, and more.

Medical Service

  • Soft-tissue surgery: These surgeries do not involve bone but only soft-tissue. Typically this involves the removal of a mass or lump but it is also common when ear and eye infections occur. If a mass was removed, a piece of the soft-tissue is often biopsied to ensure it is not cancerous.
  • Orthopedic surgery: These surgeries deal with bone and joint problems. As with humans, the complexities of such surgeries can vary greatly. Bone fractures and joint injuries (especially in larger dogs) are most common; the recovery and rehabilitation timeline can easily stretch to 4 months!
  • Platelet Rich Plasma: PRP is an integral part of the fast growing field of Regenerative medicine. The patient’s own blood is processed via centrifugation to concentrate platelets in plasma. This enriched plasma can be directed towards a variety of conditions such as osteoarthritis, tendon injuries, wound healing, and refractory ocular ulcers.
  • Chemotherapy: Chemotherapy can be used to minimize the discomfort caused by a tumor, slow down the progression of the disease, or achieve a clinical remission. Compared to people who receive chemotherapy, companion animals experience fewer side effects because veterinarians use lower doses of chemotherapy.
