Our Veterinary Services
Certified by the American Association of Feline Practitioners, means we have gone the extra mile to make our feline patient’s visit as pleasant as possible. What exactly does this mean? We use special handling techniques, calming pheromones, a lobby with an area reserved for cats and specific cat only rooms-no dog smells there!
Regular professional dental cleaning is important to maintaining your pet’s teeth and general health. We use an ultrasonic scaler to remove tartar and plaque. Hand scaling or root planing as necessary, is also used to remove deposits about the gum line. All teeth are polished upon completion of the dental procedure.
We can develop images in one or two minutes. This allows us to diagnose more efficiently and with less stress for your pet, keeping their time in the radiology room to a minimum. This method also allows us to forward images to a specialist if needed.
Our in-house laboratory allows us to offer fast, accurate, complete blood counts and chemistry profiles as well as heartworm, lyme disease, feline leukemia, and feline FIV testing. We utilize veterinary referral labs for specialized diagnostics.
We use the HomeAgain Retrieval System for microchipping your pet. Giving you another method for the safe return of your pet should it become lost, in addition to the information on the rabies tag and dog license tag.
We can help guide you in choosing the best nutrition for your pet, keeping in mind cost and your pet’s particular needs. We also offer prescription pet food which provides nutritional support.
Puppies and kittens are precious and require additional attention. We want to help you learn how to take the best care of your new pet, through preventative wellness exams, nutrition and medicine when appropriate. We also offer behavior counseling and basic puppy classes on care and training.
As your pet reaches those golden years we see changes in behavior, eating habits and activity. Let us help guide you through these changes to make the transition from bouncing kitten to gracefully aging queen as seamless as possible.
Our state of the art surgery suite offers control of airflow for a more controlled environment. In addition to spays and castrations, many other surgeries are conducted on a routine basis. We offer a variety of anesthetic protocols to accommodate individual patient needs based on length and invasiveness of procedure and patient’s general health.
Diagnostic test using ultrasonic waves to produce images of soft tissues, abdominal organs and heart. Often used in conjunction with radiographic imaging. (Ultrasound is better for imaging soft tissues and radiographs are better for imaging bones.) Common uses include imaging for bladder stones, abdominal abnormalities and pregnancy confirmation.
Perhaps the most important exams for your pet. Yearly exams are given along with vaccinations; as your pet ages, these yearly or more frequent exams often catch problems as they arise. Early detection of problems are often easier to treat and less costly.
