Providing Everything You Need
Annual exams for your pet include an overall examination of your pet's health. In this examination we will listen to your pet's heart and lungs and check their teeth, ears, muscles, and joints. We will also administer vaccinations and perform laboratory tests to check for any underlying diseases.
Dental disease can not only be bothersome to your pet but can also cause pain, further disease, and other health problems. Regular dental procedures are the best way to eliminate that. Dentistry is performed under general anesthesia and involves cleaning the plaque and tartar off of your pet's teeth. The overall health of the mouth is examined by the veterinarian during this procedure as well. Blood work will be performed before, and every patient is monitored by the veterinarian and veterinary technician for the entire procedure.
Our veterinarians perform many surgeries including neuters, spays, mass removal, and laceration repair. Additional surgical procedures are performed routinely as well. Every surgery is performed by a veterinarian and at least one veterinary technician. Before surgery, your pet will be examined and laboratory blood work will be performed to ensure your pet's safety under anesthesia. Your pet will receive an IV catheter for fluids during surgery and will have their vitals monitored the entire time until they wake up.
