We are dedicated to providing the highest quality care to our patients and the best possible service to our clients. Compassion comes first as we provide routine preventive medicine or knowledgeable diagnostic, surgical or medical treatments in our progressive hospital. We also provide quality care and companionship to pets in our luxury boarding facilities.
Regular veterinary exams are the cornerstone of good health. Combined with proper nutrition, exercise, prophylactic vaccinations and deworming, this approach can extend and enhance your pet’s life.
We use the safest vaccines with the greatest duration of immunity that are available. The immunization schedule is customized for each individual pet, giving you the assurance that your pet is protected.
Pets cannot communicate when they are feeling bad; some may even hide their symptoms. This makes diagnosis quite challenging. Physical examinations are the center of our investigations, supported by our in-house laboratory with immediately available results on CBC, Chemistry Panels, Electrolytes, Thyroid levels, urinalysis, X-rays, cytology and more. Once we determine the source of the problem, we use the latest and safest courses of treatment available.
Many procedures have become routine in our pets' lives. These include dental cleaning, mass removal, sterilization, cystotomy (bladder stone removal), preventive gastropexy (stomach tacking), foreign body removal, amputation, enucleation. Nevertheless, we still feel anxious leaving our loved ones for any length of time. Feel assured that we treat your pets like our own by offering pre-anesthetic blood work to check for any underlying diseases, IV catheters and fluids to prevent low blood pressure, and administering pain medication. After sedating your pet, a safe IV anesthetic allows us to place an endotracheal tube in the windpipe in order to administer a gas anesthetic. Your pet's condition is monitored with the latest equipment as well as by a qualified technician. Using a combination of safe drugs allows for a smooth, safe and rapid recovery so your pet can come home healthy and as soon as possible.
