Maintaining the health of your pet is paramount to our practice. Annual, or possibly semi-annual, examinations are scheduled as needed together with the appropriate vaccinations. During your pet’s exam, we will evaluate his or her overall health, discuss parasite management and recommend additional testing as needed – all in an effort to keep your pet happy and healthy as your companion. Remember, pets age five to seven times faster than their humans and their annual exam is like humans going to their doctor every 10 to 20 years!

Physical Exams

Periodic physical exams ensure that your pet is in top health and enjoying the best quality of life possible. Checking general health periodically can help detect possible health challenges he may face in the future.


Spay & Neuter

Through neutering, you can help your dog and cat live a happier, healthier, and longer life and also help reduce pet overpopulation.



Vaccinations against contagious and deadly diseases such as rabies, canine parvovirus, canine distemper, canine bordetella, feline leukemia, feline panleukopenia and other serious diseases are important to protect your pet’s health. Vaccination type and frequency of inoculation may vary based on your pet’s age and medical condition.



Our highly trained doctor and fully equipped surgery suite ensure your pet’s safety during and after surgery. We use monitoring equipment to track your pet’s vital signs and high quality anesthesia in a sterile environment to minimize risk.
