Wellness Program.  This program emphasizes care that prevents illnesses rather than waiting for an illness to strike. In general, as pet care improves, the quality of life of the pet and its owner also improves.

  1. Comprehensive Physical Examinations.
  2. Routine intestinal parasite checks done twice annually
  3. Nutritional Counseling
  4. Routine blood work screening starting at 2 years of age and becoming an annual part of the program when the pet reaches 6 years of age.
  5. Routine urinalysis on the same schedule as #6 above.
  6. Routine chest and abdominal radiographs (x-rays) done every 1-2 years.
  7. Routine beak, nail, and wing trimming in birds, and nail trimming in lizards.

Anesthesia.  Never totally without risk, anesthesia is utilized on a case by case basis. Age, species, breed, and physical condition dictate the anesthetic of choice. We use a variety of anesthetic agents, including Sevoflurane which is used in many human hospitals for pediatric, high risk, patinets.We also use heart, respiratory, and blood pressures monitors, where possible, while our patients are under anesthesia.

Pharmacy. We maintain an inventory of pharmaceuticals, and vitamins to meet you pet's individual needs.
