We are a full service hospital and do surgery Monday through Friday. Spay and neuter surgeries are the most common, but we also do many types of soft tissue surgery, some of which are listed below. We use safe anesthesia, and our surgical and anesthectic protocols have met national standards determined by the American Animal Hospital Association.
The surgeries we perform include: Spay, Neuter, C-Section, Pyometra, Bladder Stones, Episioplasty, Lump and Tumor removal, Intestinal foreign body removal, Splenectomy, Declawing, Eye surgery, Toe or limb amputation, Abscess surgery, Anal gland surgery, Full thickness surgical biopsies, and many other soft tissue surgeries.
If your pet is vomiting, has diarrhea, is coughing, sneezing, not eating well, or just seems more tired, we can help you find out what is wrong and start a treatment plan. We have a full laboratory in house for rapid diagnosis and immediate treatment for your pet. We know how important your pet's health is and we can usually get your pet in to be seen right away.
If your pet has red itchy ears, itchy skin, or a rash your pet may have allergies. Pets don't usually get the usual itchy eyes and a runny nose that we get when they are allergic, instead they get ear infections, itchy skin, and red, infected skin.
Digital X-rays provide far greater detail than a standard X-ray. In the process, we are able to email it to other animal surgeons to take care of your pet's needs.

Puppy & Kitten Care
Puppy and kitten care consists of checkups, spays and neuters, de-worming, and vaccinations. We also help you teach the dog good habits and behavior so they will become a happy, healthy, and obedient member of the family. Pediatric exams are very important both for deworming and vaccinations, but also for behavior consultation and general wellness care.
Cats and Dogs Wellness Checkups
We keep your pet healthy throughout your cat or dog's life. Annual, and six month check ups, parasite prevention, and lab work are all done at the right times to keep your pet healthy and happy. At the annual checkup we will check your pet's wieght, diet, and teeth. We also check eyes, ears, heart, lungs, abdomen, neurological status, and urogenital and musculoskeletal systems. For cats we recommend flea and tick prevention year round. In addition, stool samples on cats should be checked annually. Outdoor cats should be dewomed on a regular basis since they can get worms from hunting. Dogs also need to take flea tick and heartworm prevention year round. Like cats they also need to have an intestinal parasite screen once a year.
We do dentistry work for cats and dogs to help keep their teeth clean. Our doctors also perform extractions when a tooth is broken or if it is decaying.
As veterinary medicine becomes more advanced, we can often treat and cure diseases that in the past we could not. We hope that your pet never gets sick or injured, but if your pet does, veterinary medicine may have a compete cure. We recommend that you get pet insurance for your pet to prevent an unforeseen financial burden for you and your family.
