From nose to tail, we want your pet to enjoy the benefits of good health. Annual veterinary exams for adult pets and routine visits for puppies, kittens, young pets, and senior pets can do just this. Your pet may not be able to speak, but wellness checks can speak for them and support the best quality of life for your companion animal.
During your pet’s wellness exam our veterinarians and team will:
- Check your pet’s heart health, including, heart murmurs, abnormal heart rhythm, and signs of heart disease
- Provide a dental check, examining for infection, impaction, gum soreness and disease, plaque, and tartar
- Listen to your pet’s lungs
- Evaluate your pet’s eyes and ears
- Assess the health status of your pet’s skin, abdomen, lymph nodes, joints, and muscles
- Administer vaccines and prescribe preventative medicines
- Consult you on your pet’s behavior, diet, exercise, and answer any questions you may have
- Perform blood tests and other lab tests to analyze your pet’s overall health and to check for parasites
Puppy and Kitten Care
During the first months of your pet’s life, he or she requires the most veterinary care. Why? This is when they are the most fragile, vulnerable, and require immunizations to help prevent disease. As your puppy or kitten grows and develops into a strong and healthy dog or cat, we can make the journey smooth and safe with everything your pet needs to stay healthy.
Puppies and kittens require exams and vaccines at 8 weeks, 12 weeks, 16 weeks, and annually thereafter.
These exams routinely include:
- Vaccines: Rabies, Bordetella, DHLPP series, Feline Leukemia series, and FVRCP series
- Stool examination
- Nutritional counseling
- Dental Assessment
- Behavioral training guidance
- Spay or neutering
- Preventative care: intestinal parasites, heartworms, fleas & ticks
Vaccinations play a vital role in extending your pet’s life and preventing disease, illness, and fatality. We can help you understand and navigate the complexity of your pet’s immunizations.

Parasite Prevention and Control
For parasite prevention, we recommend yearly Heartworm testing and yearly fecal exams to detect & prevent intestinal parasites. We offer a wide variety of heartworm, flea & tick preventatives. We also offer testing for tick-transmitted diseases.
Your pet’s oral health is a good indicator of his or her overall well-being. We check the teeth and gums at every wellness exam to look for signs of infection or other dental problems. Additionally, you can schedule an appointment for a dental cleaning under general anesthesia. Our staff works with clients to teach them proper toothbrushing techniques for an at-home routine.
Our practice strives to provide the best comprehensive pet care, including supporting you with your pet’s behavioral welfare. Supporting your pet through behavioral training can strengthen your bond with your pet and improve your quality of life as well as theirs.
If your pet presents unwanted behaviors, whether they recently emerged or have been present since you adopted your pet, we can help. We can provide screening, guidance, trainer recommendations, insight, and treatment for behavioral problems. From anxiety to stress, we can help your pet achieve a better quality of life through prescription and behavioral intervention.
Your pet deserves the best and most thorough care. Our highly trained staff uses the latest radiology equipment and techniques to diagnose your pet. X-rays allow us to see what’s below the surface. Digital X-Rays are a non-invasive tool we use to assess your pet’s skeletal health, organs, and body while providing you with images to better understand your pet’s physical condition for better prevention and treatment.
For pets and their owners, surgery is stressful. We want you to feel confident that your pet is in good hands during surgery. To make the process less stressful, we communicate with you at all stages including any recommended pre-surgical bloodwork and what to expect for aftercare.
Our veterinary hospital is fully equipped to offer the best internal medical care. Internal medicine is used to diagnose underlying problems or health conditions that may not be apparent. We can diagnose and treat chronic health problems affecting your pet’s heart, lungs, liver, immune system, bladder, trachea, gastrointestinal system, kidneys, and circulatory system.
Some internal diseases we can uncover include cancer, diabetes, hypo or hyperthyroidism, Cushing’s disease, and Addison’s disease.
We offer in-hospital care, including overnight.
