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, and rats on a limited basis.

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.


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 you the option of choosing your surgeon.


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.


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. Dental radiography now available.


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


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


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.


From antibiotics and preventatives to long term medications for chronic conditions, our pharmacy is stocked to fill your pet's prescription needs.

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.

This service is restricted to established clients only.

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 gives 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.


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.


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.
