Services
 

Because of the shorter lifespan of our pets, we stress the importance of an annual physical examination. Thorough check-ups and preventive care can help alleviate serious health problems. We offer a wide range of veterinary services to keep your companions feeling their best:

   
Surgical Services:  Our state-of-the-art surgical suite provides for the performance of a wide variety of surgical procedures.  We provide specialty orthopedic procedures such as TPLO, FHO, pins, plates, and we offer the Tight Rope procedure for certain cruciate ligament ruptures.  We also perform soft tissue surgeries such as mass removals, intestinal resections and anastamosis, gastropexy, and numerous biopsy techniques.  
 

Anesthesia:  We utilize the safest available anesthetics to provide an extra margin of safety, especially for our older or high-risk patients. We also recommend pre-anesthetic diagnostic tests in order to determine the safest protocol of anesthesia for you particular pet.  Some older patients may have compromised kidneys and those patients will need to be on IV fluids and have special anesthetic induction agents.  Even young, healthy dogs are recommended to have pre-anesthetic bloodwork in order to screen for genetic illnesses.

 Acupunture: Acupuncture is a non-invasive treatment technique that can be used in a variety of medical and orthopedic conditions.  For more information on how acupuncture can help relieve pain, digestive upset, side effects from cancer, anxiety, and a number of other issues in your pet, call our office today!
    
Internal medicine: Our vetererinarians are experienced in internal medicine.  We offer a wide array of diagnostics and treatment options for the most difficult cases.  Our ICU houses our internal medicine cases where our motivated staff can keep a close eye on your loved one.  We have a great refferal program for those cases that we cannot treat in our hospital.

   
Radiology Services:  Our on-site X-ray equipment provides high quality radiographs to aid in the quick diagnosis of many disorders.
   
Dentistry:  Our dental services include ultrasonic teeth cleaning and polishing, tooth extractions, and minor oral surgery.

   
Laboratory:  Our in-house laboratory facilities provide for serum chemistry, hematology, serology, urinalysis and parasite testing. We also utilize commercial veterinary laboratories for specialized diagnostics and consultations.
    
Permanent identification: We offer microchip identification. 
    
Pharmacy:  We maintain a complete inventory of pharmaceuticals, vitamins, shampoos, flea and tick control products and heartworm preventatives to meet the needs of your pet. We also carry a full line of prescription diets.
   
Individualized Flea Control Programs:  We develop programs for the specific needs of your pet and your own particular environmental situation. We will review with you the best ways to control fleas in your house, in your yard and on your pet.


Dietary Counseling:
  We will provide guidance regarding your pet's nutritional needs for each life stage, including dietary requirements for growth, weight maintenance and performance. We offer Hill's Science Diet and Hill's Prescription Diets.

 Ultrasound: We have a state-of-the art ultrasound machine to provide even faster and more appropriate diagnoses.  We can perform abdominal ultrasounds to search for several disease states, as well as pregnancy determination.  We also ultrasound the bovine and equine reproductive tracts for pre-breeding evaluations and pregnancy determination.  Small ruminants and camelids are also included in our ultrasound uses.

Laser Therapy:  Our cold laser therapy is designed to help dogs with chronic arthritis, wound healing, and post surgical care.  It also speeds the healing of ear infections and inflammation, helps decrease the pain and infection in anal sacculitis, as well as decreasing inflammation in dental procedures.

 

Boarding:  We have clean, spacious boarding facilities.  Pets receive individualized, personal care from our staff while here.  We can administer medications and also notice medical issues if they should arise while boarding.  Pets may be dropped off and picked up during regular business hours Monday through Friday.

 Grooming:  Routine and therapeutic bathing services are available.  Our groomer provides our clients with specialty cuts, shaving, and bathing.  She can also give medicated baths under the direction of our veterinary staff. Grooming is available  by appointment only.

 

Reproductive Services: We provide specialty reproductive services for our small animal clients and routine artificial insemination services for our equine clients.  Specialty small animal reproductive services include same-day progesterone analysis, artificial insemination with fresh and cooled shipped semen, as well as surgical artificial insemination with frozen semen.  We can also collect semen for same day insemination.  Pregnancy determination as early as 15 days.  Please call for more information.
