OFFICE HOURS

ABOUT OUR CLINIC

From puppy or kitten vaccines, to annual check-ups, parasite control, and microchips, to surgery, radiology, dentistry, and pain management, we promise to be there to offer options and provide support throughout your pet’s life.

Today, families expect more from their veterinarian than ever before and we believe this is a good thing! High quality veterinary services are more than caring for your pet family’s health, because without compassion and a truly individual approach, even quality veterinary care will fall short.

It is our priority to provide a comfortable and enjoyable atmosphere for both you and your pets. Our goal is to make you a part of your pet’s healthcare, and build lifelong relationships with you and your pet family. In doing so, we welcome and encourage you to stay with your pet during all aspects of the office visit and medical treatments. If your pet needs to be taken to the treatment room during an appointment, you may come right along with them. If your pet is hospitalized, you are always welcome to visit during clinic hours. In addition, we welcome you to stay with your pet throughout the day of surgery. We provide a comfortable environment for you during your pet’s surgery, and once your pet is stable, we bring them into the room with you so that you can be close to them during their recovery process. Our veterinarians are capable of performing a wide variety of routine and advanced surgical, diagnostic, and therapeutic procedures. We strive to use the latest and proven diagnostic tools and techniques to diagnose and develop an appropriate treatment plan designed specifically for your pet.

Regardless if your pet is new to the family or growing older, we’ll work together in providing exceptional healthcare so that your pets can live long, healthy, and comfortable lives.
