Medical Services – Every pet who comes to our clinic for routine vaccinations or for a health concern receives an in-depth exam and consultation with one of our doctors. A veterinary technician assists in this consultation. During the visit the doctor and technician will make recommendations to assist you in preventing and addressing pet health concerns.
Wellness Bloodwork – Our doctors and technicians will make recommendations about blood tests. Routine wellness blood screening helps the doctors to assess organ function and detect health problems before pets are showing obvious clinical signs that they are unwell.
In House Lab Services – In addition to sending many blood tests and other samples out to the lab, many tests are done on site to allow our veterinarians to have results quickly. Lab work done on site includes; urine analysis, fecal floatation, fecal trypsin, ear cytology, vaginal cytology, skin cytology and blood work such as CBC and 12 different blood chemistry tests. We also send tests away to an animal lab that specializes in this field of work. When specimens are sent out results are usually back within 24 hours.
Surgery – All routine surgeries run by appointment. Spay and Neuter surgeries are booked once routine vaccinations are completed. Other surgical procedures such as mass removals, ophthalmic surgeries and dental surgeries are booked after consultation with the doctor.
Dentistry – Dental disease is one of the most common concerns that vets see in both dogs and cats. As pets age, they can develop periodontal disease and severe dental infections which cause oral pain and discomfort. For this reason, dental care is an important focus in our clinic. We will explain dental home care, and we recommend dental diets. If the dental disease has progressed, the pet may need in clinic dental procedures. All dental procedures are performed under general anesthetic. While the pet is sleeping, we scale off tartar deposits and then the teeth are polished smooth. Dental charting is performed and unhealthy teeth are surgically extracted to prevent pain and infection.
Radiology – X-rays are taken and developed on site. We have a variety of X-ray plate sizes to fit the smallest kitten or the largest Great Dane. We can take excellent quality X-rays and we perform barium series when needed to help diagnose gastro intestinal concerns.
