A little of what we do:

Behavioral Medicine​ Illness doesn't always have a physical cause. Our doctors use a thorough patient history along with relevant clinical signs to help determine the cause of such disorders as separation anxiety and obsessive behavior, and then develop a treatment regimen for the client and patient to help them live together in a mutually beneficial way.

Blood Transfusion We maintain available blood donors for dogs and cats in case of emergency. The blood is collected from healthy donor pets, current on all vaccines and housed within minutes of our hospital.

Dental Care Healthy gums and teeth will add years to a pet's life!! Regular professional cleaning is important to maintaining your pet's teeth. We use modern and safe ultrasonic scaling to clean each tooth thoroughly - above and below the gum line. Dental assistants then polish teeth to create a smooth, lustrous tooth surface more resistant to plaque buildup. Referrals for advanced dental care are also available, including dental X-rays, root canals, caps and braces.
