Pet Services

 Our animal hospital offers a wide-variety of services, such as dental care, emergency care, emergency/routine surgery, preventative care, and boarding for cats and dogs. During your pets wellness exam our veterinarians can administer annual vaccines, including rabies vaccination which is required by law.

We encourage you to spay or neuter your pets at the appropriate age or after adoption to promote a long, healthy life and to help prevent unwanted pregnancies. We recommend preventative dental care and cleanings to protect your pet from harmful plaque and gingivitis.

 Our staff is happy to provide you with any educational material you may want to help keep your pet healthy. Keeping your pet healthy while at home and outdoors is important, we recommend using heartworm, flea, and tick prevention year round. To ensure your pet will always make it home to you we offer microchipping with no monthly or annual fees required. All of these services can be performed during your pet’s wellness exam.

In addition to standard boarding, we offer spacious VIP rooms and kitty condos. 24-hour pet-cam access is available for dog owners who choose the VIP option when booking.
