Behavioral Counseling & Medications
Many animals each year to euthanized due to behavioral problems such as chewing, digging, house soiling or aggression. Our goal is to determine the cause of these behaviors and develop an appropriate treatment regimen. Behavioral problems can be very complex and require an extended to lifelong treatment. We are here to help you every step of the way.
Good nutrition is the key to good health. We can help you determine what type of diet your pet needs. We carry a variety of Science Diet, Royal Canin, and Purina prescription foods. And we will gladly special order anything your pet needs.
Immunization & Wellness Care
Yearly or semiannual examinations are crucial for disease prevention and overall wellness. We are able to tailor vaccines and wellness programs to each individual animal and their lifestyle. We will recommend yearly wellness blood work on every pet as a baseline and especially when the pet becomes elderly, which can be as early as 5 years old in large breed dogs.
It is very exciting to welcome a new member to your family! We not only provide you with their wellness care but spend time educating you on how to care for your new pet.
Parasite Control Program
Intestinal parasites can not only cause harm to your pets but they can also be transmitted to you. Intestinal parasite screenings will be incorporated into every pediatric visit as well as the yearly wellness screenings.
Many pets each year are lost and never returned to their owners. While we strongly recommend that every pet has a collar with identification tags, these tags can become lost or the collar can be taken off. Microchipping offers a form of permanent identification that will help veterinary clinics and animal shelters reunite lost pets with their owners.
