Because of the shorter lifespan of our pets, we stress the importance of physical examinations twice a year. 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:
Anesthesia: We utilize the safest available anesthetics to provide an extra margin of safety, especially for our older or high-risk patients. Using the most modern equipment, the patient's vital signs are monitored during all anesthetic procedures.
Behavioral Counseling: We can provide advice regarding the correction of problems such as excessive barking, chewing, spraying, scratching, digging, house soiling and aggression.
Boarding: We are happy to provide boarding service for our clients. We will keep your cat, dog, bird or exotic while you are away from home, and you can call to check on them anytime we're open. If medical attention is needed, they'll be in the right place to receive care from their own doctor!
