Twice a Year for Life Wellness Exams!  Routine bloodwork once a year once a year and Annual vaccines are off set by 6 months of each other.  Wellness exams are critical for preventative medicine and will be conducted twice a year. Preventative healthcare focuses on maintaining wellness and stopping health problems before they occur. Instead of waiting until your pet has a health issue, bi-annual visits for life ensure that your pet is in good health, or to catch health problems in early stages, in order to provide longer healthier lives for our patients.



Unlike a collar, which can easily break, fall off, or be removed, a microchip is a reliable way to get your contact information—as well as vital information about your pet's medical conditions—and increase the odds he'll be returned to you if he's found.  We use Petlink microchips which come with a lifetime registration.



A vaccine stimulates the immune system to produce antibodies, exactly like it would if you were exposed to the disease. After getting vaccinated, you develop immunity to that disease, without having to get the disease first. This is what makes vaccines such powerful medicine.



In addition to routine procedures including spays, neuters, and dental cleanings, we can perform many other soft tissue surgeries such as mass removals, cystotomies, and gastrointestinal obstructions. We perform pre-operative blood work on all anesthetic procedures. Our newly renovated operating room boasts the latest in anesthesia delivery and monitoring. Our patients are provided isoflurane and supplemented oxygen. During surgery, our patients are supported with IV fluids and external warming if needed and continuously monitored using an ECG (EKG), pulse oximeter (measures blood oxygen concentration to ensure the patient is breathing appropriately). During the postoperative period, our highly trained veterinary technicians closely monitor our patients to ensure a complete smooth recovery. Included in routine procedures is pain management in the immediate postoperative period.



A dental prophylaxis is a cleaning procedure performed to thoroughly clean the teeth. Prophylaxis is an important dental treatment for halting the progression of periodontal disease and gingivitis.  Preventing bacteria from entering the blood stream (sepsis) via an infected gum lime, will further ensure a longer quality of life for your pet.
