Dental Care

Regular professional cleaning is important to maintaining your pet's teeth. We use state-of-the-art high speed ultrasonic units to clean each tooth thoroughly - above and below the gum line. Dental technicians polish teeth to create a smooth, lustrous tooth surface more resistant to plaque buildup.  One of our doctors will preform a full dental exam and any extractions that may be needed.

Digital Radiography (X-rays) help our veterinarians evaluate muscular-skeletal, cardiovascular (cardiopulmonary), gastrointestinal, reproductive and urinary systems. We are equipped to take x-rays of any sized animal. In addition, we are able to perform radiographic contrast studies, such as barium studies, cystograms, and intravenous pyelograms.

Our receptionists and team will attempt to accommodate all requests to the best of our ability. Emergencies are accepted anytime our clinic is open. If you feel you have an emergency with your pet, please call us or come to the hospital immediately.

Laser Surgery

Surgical CO2 lasers provide an alternative to traditional surgery. Lasers can replace scalpels in many surgical procedures, and are useful for a wide range of conditions, such as cyst, tumor, and wart removal, general surgery, and preferred method  in declawing. As the surgical laser beam penetrates the patient's tissue, it cauterizes blood vessels and seals nerve endings, the  result is less pain, less bleeding, and less swelling. They reduce risk of infection and result in less post-operative discomfort.

Orthopedic Surgery

Our hospital is equipped to perform many orthopedic surgeries, such as internal and external bone pinning and plating for fracture repair, correction of anterior cruciate ligament rupture, femoral head osteotomy, reduction of dislocations of elbow and hip joints, arthrodesis, and bone biopsies.

Exclusive Offer


What is heartworm disease?

Heartworm disease is a serious and potentially fatal disease in pets.  It is caused by foot-long worms (heartworms) that live in the heart, lungs and associated blood vessels of affected pets, causing severe lung disease, heart failure and damage to other organs in the body.  Heartworm disease affects dogs, cats and ferrets, but heartworms also live in other mammal species, including wolves, coyotes, foxes, sea lions and ---in rare instances ---humans. Because wild species such as foxes and coyotes live in proximity to many urban areas, they are considered important carriers of the disease.

The dog is a natural host for heartworms, which means that heartworms that live inside the dog mature into adults, mate and produce offspring.  If untreated, their numbers can increase, and dogs have been known to harbor several hundred worms in their bodies.  Heartworm disease causes lasting damage to the heart, lungs and arteries, and can affect the dog's health and quality of life long after the parasites are gone.  For this reason, administered as early in course of the disease as possible.
