We have five amazing veterinarians at our practice. We encourage you to meet all five physicians and get to know them better.

How often do you recommend my pet be seen?
We recommend a thorough physical exam annually. As a pet gets older, or if there are any health concerns, we will adjust this recommendation accordingly.
How often do you recommend blood work?
Pending on your pet’s age, we recommend senior wellness profiles. This will help us catch some diseases early and help prolong your pet’s life. If your pet is on a long term medication, we recommend blood work every six months to monitor potential side effects.
What does a urinalysis test for?
Patients who are having urinary issues, such as accidents, straining, excessive licking, incontinence, etc. should have a urinalysis performed. We also recommend it to compliment blood work results. This will help us monitor kidney function, screen for uroliths (stones/crystals), inflammatory cells, bacteria, pH to name a few.

We have many different therapies that might work for your pet. They range from natural anti-inflammatory and joint supplements, diets to long-term prescription non-steroidal anti-inflammatory medications and pain management. Please call to make an appointment to discuss your pet’s personal needs.
