We offer a wide range of veterinary services to keep your companions feeling their best!


Wellness Examinations: Unfortunately, pets have a shorter lifespan than humans. Because of this, we stress the importance of a physical examination twice a year. Thorough check-ups and preventive care can help alleviate serious health problems. Our wellness exams allow us to look at every detail of your pet starting at their nose and going to their tails. We don’t want to miss a thing!

Pain Control:  Whether your pet has an acute or chronic problem causing them pain, we have a variety of treatments to offer them to give them the relief they deserve.   In addition, all animals that undergo surgery will have appropriate pain medications administered during and after their procedures. We feel strongly about this matter, pain control is mandatory for you pets comfort.

Antibiotics and pain medication will be offered if there are any extractions or if we feel it would benefit your pet’s health. After your pet’s dental procedure, we will also send you home with an at home dental care kit.
