Annual Physical Exams

Each and every patient is examined by a veterinarian on their first visit and every following year. These physicals allow us to get to know your pet, assess their health, and detect any abnormalities or signs of disease. After your appointment, you receive a full report of our observations.

Vaccinations

Vaccines are an integral part of preventative care. Stopping the spread of infectious diseases is important for public health, your pet’s health, and your own. Our team guides you in choosing which vaccines are essential for your pet’s wellbeing.

Nutrition Counseling

The phrase “you are what you eat” applies to our pets, too. Dietary nutrition has an impact on general wellbeing, can help heal illnesses, and prevent disease. Our team can recommend appropriate diets and feeding practices based on your pet’s species, breed, age, illness, and more.

Biyearly Exams

Just like our annual physical exams, we check your pet’s physical condition, vital signs, and bodily functions. Our biyearly exams are usually recommended for our senior pets or patients that require more frequent health assessments.

Microchipping

This small form of electronic identification can make a huge difference. Pets are up to twenty times more likely to be reunited with their owners when they’re microchipped. Our veterinary team can chip your pet quickly and safely during their visit – it’s just a quick pinch!

Dental Cleaning

When it comes to oral health, bad breath is only the tip of the iceberg. Our comprehensive oral health assessments and treatments save your pet from experiencing the pain and infection caused by dental disease.

Urinalysis

This routine test is an important part of evaluating your pet’s health, especially if they’re exhibiting clinical signs pointing to illness. It’s mainly used to assess the kidneys and urinary system, but it can also reveal problems in other parts of the body.

Blood Screening

We highly recommend yearly bloodwork for all of our patients, especially senior pets. We customize our blood panels depending on your pet’s age, species, and clinical symptoms, and a bloodwork analysis is mandatory prior to anesthetic procedures. This enables us to be proactive and responsible advocates for your pet’s health.

Diagnostic Imaging (Radiography & Ultrasonography)

X-rays and ultrasounds are sometimes the most conclusive form of diagnostic testing we can do to examine bones, the heart, lungs, and other abdominal organs. X-rays are necessary for determining a course of action for a foreign body and can save your pet’s life. An ultrasound is a useful diagnostic tool for examining abdominal disease, completing a sterile urinalysis, and monitoring pregnancies.

Echocardiogram

Informative and non-invasive, an ultrasound of the heart helps to identify heart murmurs, irregular rhythms, and heart disease. Routine screenings can be scheduled for pets predisposed with heart conditions or breeding candidates.

Blood Pressure Monitoring

Hypertension, or high blood pressure, is more common in pets than you may think and it’s usually caused by an underlying medical condition. Measuring your pet’s blood pressure accurately is important to understand the severity of your pet’s condition and prescribing appropriate treatment.

Spay/Neuter Surgery

These low-risk sterilization procedures are completed under general anesthesia and help prolong your pet’s life. Having your pet spayed or neutered prevents uterine infections, breast tumors, testicular cancer, prostate issues, behavioral problems and more.

Oral Surgery/Dental Extractions

Every now and then, our comprehensive oral health assessments and treatments call for more than a routine dental cleaning. Removing growths and extracting teeth are two of the most common reasons oral surgery may be necessary.

Growth Removal Surgery

Removing growths, like moles, lesions, or tumors, can be a lifesaving procedure or a cosmetic preference. Whether malignant or benign, a large growth can bother your pet or cause secondary health concerns.

Foreign Body Retrieval Surgery

Every now and then, our comprehensive oral health assessments and treatments call for more than a routine dental cleaning. Removing growths and extracting teeth are two of the most common reasons oral surgery may be necessary.

Foreign Body Obstructions: When Your Pet Eats Something They Shouldn’t

Surgical Insemination

Surgical insemination boasts the highest fertility rates and breeding success but is more invasive than natural breeding. The procedure allows ideal insemination timing during the ovulation cycle and is especially ideal for breeds with difficulties breeding naturally, like bulldogs.

Entropion Surgery

This corrective surgery fixes entropion, a hereditary eyelid abnormality. This procedure can prevent and treat pain, perforations, ulcers, excessive tearing, and more.

Third Eyelid Tacking Surgery

This corrective surgery takes care of our patients with cherry eye, a prolapse of the third eyelid gland. Although it’s generally considered to be a cosmetic issue, cherry eye can cause tear deficiency, infection, or pain if it becomes irritated.

Acupuncture

Used to impact pain relief, aid organ systems, and promote the healing process, acupuncture involves inserting fine needles into specific acupoints. These affected acupoints stimulate the nervous system and manipulate Qi flows.

Chinese Herbal Medicine

Our herbal formulas are customized for our patients and easy to mix with food or treats. Our products contain ingredients with active, therapeutic properties that allow us to promote wellness in a myriad of circumstances.

Chinese Food Therapy

Traditional Chinese practitioners use the art and science of using customized food and herb ingredients to treat each individual patient. Food management can be a primary or adjunct therapy used to prevent disease, promote overall health, and treat existing health conditions.

Cold Laser Therapy

This non-invasive procedure uses light to stimulate cell regeneration and increase blood circulation. Cold laser therapy is a great option for pain management or wound healing.

Nutraceuticals

Used in the treatment and prevention of disease, nutraceuticals are compounds found in food or herbs used to benefit your pet’s health. An alternative to pharmaceuticals, nutraceuticals fall into the food supplement category and include multiple ingredients in a singular product.

At-Home Hospice Care

With pet hospice care, the goal shifts from direct treatment of a disease to treating symptoms in order to promote a better quality of life. Our veterinary team can guide you in making your pet as comfortable as possible while at home.
