Preventative Medical Care
Puppy and kitten visits: include examinations, behavioral counseling, vaccinations, and parasite screenings to help your pet get off to a great start! We will also discuss microchipping, spaying/neutering, dental care, house training, and other basic obedience.
Adult Wellness exams: annual examinations geared toward preventing illness and identifying any undetected problems. In addition to a comprehensive exam these may include vaccinations, blood screening, dietary counseling, dental home care recommendations, heartworm and flea preventatives.
Comprehensive Dental Care
Routine dental care has become an integral part of the prevention of periodontal disease and tooth loss in our pets. Dogs and cats both suffer from plaque and tartar build up which leads to gingivitis and periodontal disease. The periodontal disease is what causes tooth loss. We can prevent these from occurring in your pet with regular oral exams and cleanings as well as ongoing home care.
We offer complete dental care including ultrasonic scaling, polishing, sealing, and dental x-rays. Radiographs of the teeth allow us to identify fractures of teeth, abscessed roots, and periodontal disease that can cause your pet pain. We often find lesions during a routine dental exam and cleaning that we were unaware of before we had radiographs of the teeth. We can offer better treatment options for your pet with this capability.
We also offer many home care products that help keep your pet's teeth clean and breath smelling fresh. Products include toothbrushes, pet friendly toothpastes, antibacterial rinses, gels, and dental chews for cats and dogs.
Complete Medical Workups
We offer comprehensive exams and consultations on medical problems encompassing internal medicine, dentistry, ophthalmology, dermatology, cardiology, and oncology. We can also set up referrals for specialists in these areas as necessary. Full body radiographic equipment with automatic processing gives us the ability to provide results while you wait.
For our critically ill or emergency patients we can also perform a range of blood testing services in our hospital. These include complete blood counts, chemistry panels, urinalyses, electrocardiograms (EKG), cytology of skin lesions and ear infections, parasite screening of the skin or stool, and heartworm testing. An in-house laboratory provides instant results while the client is waiting! This allows us to address critical patients immediately without having to send tests to an outside lab.
We counsel pet owners on nutrition for their pets and offer prescription foods from Iams, Royal Canin, Purina and Hill's Science Diet. Some dogs and cats may need these special diets for a brief period and others benefit from life long dietary therapy. These foods are specifically formulated for specific medical problems; obesity, diabetes, bladder stones, kidney disease, liver disease, pancreatitis and foods specially formulated for dietary sensitivities and allergies.
We also provide routine medical and emergency care for pet rabbits, guinea pigs, and other small rodents. We counsel new pet owners on how to best care for their unique pets including their environment and dietary needs. We also carry the highest quality hay and pellet foods for your pet rabbits and also Harrisons brand avian diets.
This service helps give our clients and patients a place to come and enjoy the clinic while helping to develop a friendly and confident dog. The interactive aspect of this service can help with early socialization skills needed to prevent behavioral problems later in life. Your pet can come try a single day and if they enjoy the experience you can buy a package deal to save money.
