Small Animal Care


Our doctors and staff offer care for your furry family members for everything from annual wellness exams and vaccinations to surgery and hospitalization when needed. While most of our patients are dogs and cats, we also see 'pocket pets' such as guinea pigs, rabbits, rats and hamsters.


Geriatric Care


It's a fact, older pets require special care. We have extensive experience determining what testing, medications and proper diet will help your senior citizen as they age.


Puppy/kitten Care


Adding a new member to your family is exciting, especially when it's a new puppy or kitten. We will make sure your new addition gets the proper testing, vaccinations and preventatives. We can help with questions about diet, training, socialization or behavioral issues.


Surgery


Whether it's an elective procedure or something more urgent, our facilities can accommodate your pet's surgical needs. All of our veterinarians have regularly scheduled surgery days each week to give your the option of choosing your surgeon.


Cryosurgery


Cryosurgery for pets is a safe treatment alternative to traditional surgery. The surgical technique uses liquid nitrous oxide to freeze unwanted tissue and destroys it. This is a good option for small tumors, cysts, skin tags and other skin disorders. There is very little discomfort for the pet so no anesthetic is needed and no need for sutures. Call today to discuss if your pet would benefit from this treatment.


Dentistry


Dental health is more important to a pet's overall health than most people think. While we recommend a routine of dental care at home, sometimes it's necessary for a thorough dental cleaning under anesthesia. Our ultra-sonic dental machine cleans teeth for a healthy mouth free of tartar and gingivitis.


Acupuncture Services


Dr. Bindu Mohan (Soman) is a trained veterinarian and certified veterinary acupuncturist who will now be providing acupuncture services to our patients. Dr. Mohan is not new to us and as many of you know, she has been practicing veterinary medicine with us for many years.

Acupuncture increases circulation, causes a release of endorphins (natural pain-killing hormones), relieves muscle spasms, stimulates nerves and stimulates the body's defense system. It is beneficial for treating multiple conditions such as arthritis, allergic dermatitis and diarrhea.

All appointments are made directly with Dr. Mohan. Please call her at 847-477-9461 or email her at bindu.mohan@usa.net. She will set up a time to meet you at our facility.



Laboratory


Our hospital lab is available to run several tests in-house such as urinalysis, fecal testing and a variety of blood works. We also use an outside service with regular pickups for a quick result return.


Radiology


With our in-house radiology services, we are able to diagnose a variety of conditions quickly and thoroughly.


Ultrasound


Ultrasound allows us to examine internal organs for location, size, shape, texture and blood supply. It is a useful tool often used in conjunction with other diagnostics such as bloodwork and additional imaging to aid in diagnosing your pet's condition.



Pharmacy


From antibiotics and preventatives to long term medications for chronic conditions, our pharmacy is stocked to fill your pet's prescription needs. Coming soon, we will be offering an online pharmacy for combined convenience of ordering from your home and home delivery.


International Health Certificates


We have experience with International Health Certificates so you can travel abroad with your pets. There are different rules for each country, call for further information.


HomeAgain Microchipping


1 in 3 pets goes missing during its lifetime, and without proper ID, 90% never return home. A microchip for dogs and cats fives the best protection with permanent ID that can never be removed or become impossible to read.


Prescription Diets


There are several conditions that may require your pet to be put on a special prescription diet. These diets are not available in stores as they need a prescription from a doctor to purchase. We stock many types from Prescription Diets by Hill's and Royal Canin. Others can be special ordered. Please call for more information.


Boarding


If you are going away and can't take your dog or cat with you, we have boarding facilities to accommodate them. Our kennel staff specializes in making your pet's stay safe and stress free. We also have the ability to accommodate more medically involved boarders in our hospital ward if necessary. Reservations required.


Baths


Consider us the next time you're thinking your furry friend could use a little clean-up. We offer bathing services and can take care of nails, anal gland expression and ear cleaning if needed. Appointments required.


Medicated Baths


Some skin conditions require special medicated baths as treatment. If you are unable to do these at home, we can help. Appointments required.
