We pride ourselves in providing the highest quality medicine to our clients and patients. While many ailments can be accurately diagnosed with a physical examination alone, we are skilled in many advanced diagnostics if needed.
Yearly physical examinations are the most important tool in early detection of disease. While your pet may seem perfectly healthy there are conditions such as early heart disease, arthritis, and cancers that can be found on a physical examination before any sign of these is revealed to you by your pet.
Spay & Neuter
We recommend that every dog and cat be spayed/neutered at 6 months of age. We also offer spays/neuters for most of our patients whether large, small, or exotic.
We are proficient in many non-routine surgical procedures. Some surgical procedures we perform include skin mass removals, laceration repairs, hernia repairs, tail and dew claw removal, entropion repair, select orthopedic surgeries, abdominal exploratory surgery, and many others.
Whether protecting a herd, flock, or your pet we have the vaccinations you need.
Unchecked dental disease can lead to tooth loss, infected sinuses, or even heart disease. Proper dental care can add time to your pets active life.
Radiography and ultrasonography can allow us to accurately and quickly diagnose heart disease, cancer, pancreatitis, bladder stones, and many other problems.
Farm and House Calls
This service is offered so that we can accommodate our large animal clients, clients with a large number of small animals, or clients that may not want to get their exotics out of their environment.
In Hospital Testing
We are able to offer full bloodwork in the hospital so that we can receive results for you in about 20 minutes. Other laboratory tests we can perform while you wait include;
Aspirates of a lump to better characterize a mass
Blood slides to look for anemia, infections, or blood parasites
Fecal examinations for intestinal parasites
Ear swabs to check for ear mites
Skin scrapes to check for skin mites
and many other in hospital tests!
