Our small exam room caters to our feline friends and small dogs. We have small animal specialty scales to accurately weigh smaller pets. Our exam table has a non-slip, cushioned surface to help your pet feel comfortable during their examination.
Our large exam room caters to our larger patients and contains a large rising table with a non-slip surface. This allows us ample access to fully examine your pet, while maintaining your pet’s confidence during his exam.
Our certified technicians utilize our radiology system to obtain high-quality radiographs in a timely manner for a faster diagnosis of a sick pet. Our radiographs enable our doctors to analyze the chest, abdomen, and skeletal systems for abnormalities.
Our surgery suite is equipped with modern Isoflourane gas anesthesia, one of the safest inhalant anesthetics available. We require a pre-surgical consult to assess for any abnormalities that may change your pet’s anesthesia or surgery plan. One of our trained Certified Veterinary Technicians (CVT) monitors your pet through the procedure and post-op care. Our technicians monitor your pet’s heart and lungs by utilizing stethoscopes and our Doppler blood pressure machine. All pets are placed on warming pads to maintain body temperature. A specialized pain plan will be arranged to ensure your pet’s comfort. We offer pre-anesthetic blood screening to assess your pet’s organ function prior to administering anesthetic drugs. This bloodwork is required for patients 7 years of age or older, but is recommended for all. We also recommend placing an IV catheter and administering fluids throughout the procedure. This allows quick access to your pet’s vein in the case of an emergency, helps maintain blood pressure throughout the procedure, and aids in a faster recovery. The doctor may require IV fluids for certain procedures or geriatric patients.
Our dental cleanings take place in our treatment area. Treatment of dental disease includes a thorough dental prophylaxis under anesthesia. During this cleaning, a Certified Technician will scale the teeth, both above and below the gumline (where bacteria hide), polish the teeth, and probe the gumline for any abnormalities. The doctor will complete a thorough oral exam and address any concerns. Finally, if you choose to, our technicians will apply a concentrated sealant to the teeth. This sealant is a waxy substance that allows tarter to form on the wax and slough off weekly. It needs to be applied to the gumline at home once weekly to remain effective.
We have a full-line of in-house diagnostics to rapidly determine the cause of sick pets. Our blood chemistry analyzer quickly screens kidney and liver values, blood sugar, electrolytes, and protein levels. We are able to check your pet’s complete blood cell count to assess for anemia, infection, and platelet disorders. Our technicians can perform a full urinalysis to look for signs of infection, urinary stones, or to screen for kidney or liver disease and diabetes. We also routinely microscopically view ear swabs to check for infections, skin scrapings to check for mites, and cells from masses to check for cancer.
With rooms on oppoisite sides of the lobby, we make every effort to keep our feline and canine patients separated to allow a comfortable space for our patients. Feline patients will find comfort with our Feliway pheromone diffuser. If your dog prefers waiting outside, our techinicans can come get you when your room is ready. Please let our receptionist know if your dog or cat is uncomfortable in any way. We strive to make every visit a positive experience for our patients!
We have spacious 3.5 x 7 foot indoor runs to house your precious pooches. They are taken out at least 3 times daily to stretch their legs and go the bathroom in our shady outdoor runs. When the weather is nice, they can breathe the fresh air and stay in their outdoor run for most of the day.
We also offer cat boarding in 2 x 4 foot cages. If your kitty likes, they are able to “toodle” during the day in an empty exam room or treatment area when time permits.
We have many donated blankets and beds for your pet to use while they stay at our facility. If you prefer to bring something from home, please be aware they may get dirty and go through our washing machine. We try our hardest to keep your pet’s personal belongings together, but please do not bring any items that are invaluable to you or your pet.
We feed Hill’s adult sensitive stomach diets for both cats and dogs. You may also bring in your own food if they are on a special diet. Please do not bring food or water bowls from home as we have many to use here.
At no extra charge, your pet can be given any oral or topical medications they need during their stay. For diabetic animals, there is an additional fee for insulin injections. Please have your medications and directions for use with you when you check-in your pet for boarding.
Both dog and cat boarders must be current on their distemper and rabies vaccines.
