Our experienced veterinary team provides comprehensive medical care, ranging from routine to advanced procedures and treatments.
Although we handle the majority of your pet’s medical and surgical needs in-house, we occasionally refer patients to veterinary specialists or specialty clinics when advanced training or equipment will be beneficial. Below you will find a list of treatments that we currently offer in-house.
Our veterinary team has you covered!
Do you need advice regarding the redirection of unwanted behaviors such as excessive barking, chewing, spraying, scratching, digging, house soiling, or aggression? We offer solutions for a variety of behavioral issues that pet owners face. Behavioral problems can be challenging and frustrating for both pets and pet owners. It is our goal to work with you towards a solution.
Veterinary internal medicine refers to the use of advanced diagnostic services and treatment plans for illnesses related to the internal body systems of animals. Our team can help diagnose and treat conditions of the GI system, kidneys, liver, heart, nervous system, endocrine glands, bladder, and respiratory systems. We also treat blood disorders, immune deficiencies, and infectious diseases.
When it comes to orthopedic care, prevention, detection, and treatment of injuries or disorders of the skeletal system and associated muscles, joints, and ligaments are an important and vital part of keeping your pet up, running, and healthy. In addition to a thorough physical exam, we use laboratory tests and radiological findings to determine the cause of your pet’s pain and/or the extent of their injury or illness.
If you are concerned about your pet’s eyes or vision, we can help. Our veterinarians can help diagnose and treat a variety of ophthalmological issues, including but not limited to, dry eyes, cataracts, corneal infection or trauma, and glaucoma. It is important to report any changes in your pet’s eyes or vision during your routine veterinary visits.
Whether a pet has a congenital heart condition or a cardiology issue that has developed over time, diagnosing a heart condition early can allow your pet to lead a long, healthy life and avoid heart failure. Call us if your pet starts breathing rapidly or coughing, loses his or her appetite, tires easily, seems weak, or has trouble exercising.
The endocrine glands include the pituitary, thyroid, parathyroid, pancreas, adrenals, ovaries, and testes. Each of these glands secretes a type of hormone into the bloodstream that regulates various body systems. These serious, potentially life-threatening conditions are much more manageable when caught early, allowing us to begin proper treatment.
Physical rehabilitation is often prescribed for arthritis, mobility limitations, degenerative neurological conditions, and/or orthopedic surgical recovery. Depending on the condition, exercises are performed to increase range of motion, improve balance, and overall muscle strength. Pain reduction is an important part of rehab and is managed through a variety of modalities.
Our veterinarians work with you to determine the cause of pain and teach you how to recognize pain in your pet. Acute or chronic pain affects your pet’s ability to physically function and can also have a detrimental effect on their well-being and state of mind. Pain management is one of our primary considerations when treating a pet for any medical condition.
Blood & Plasma Transfusions
Blood transfusion (including transfusion of blood products, like plasma) is a critically important service that can mean the difference between life and death for your pet. All blood is carefully screened for safety, handled carefully to ensure delivery of healthy cells, and administered by experienced professionals. Our staff has been extensively trained and will handle your pet with care and compassion.
Acupuncture is the practice of inserting needles into body tissues in order to relieve both localized and general pain and inflammation. The most common conditions treated with acupuncture include arthritis, developmental bone disease, disc disease, and tendon or ligament injuries. Acupuncture can also help, nervous disorders, skin problems, kidney disease, diabetes, GI disorders, respiratory problems, and much more.
Chinese Herbal Medicine
Chinese herbal medicine is a holistic approach to healing. Along with nutrition management and acupuncture, it comprises a system of diagnosis and systemic treatment commonly known as Traditional Chinese Veterinary Medicine or TCVM. Chinese medicinal herbs are used in dogs and cats for a variety of conditions. Herbal treatments tend to be gentler than medication and may take longer to see clear results.
Tranquilization & Sedation
Tranquilization or sedation is used to calm an animal under various conditions. The animal remains awake or may ‘sleep’ but is easily aroused when stimulated. Pet owners frequently request sedation for their animals during travel, thunderstorms, fireworks, etc. Sedation and tranquilization are not without risk and each animal should be assessed prior to dispensing these medicines.
Hospice & Euthanasia
Deciding when your pet may need hospice care or euthanasia is a very personal and private decision, but that doesn’t mean you have to make this difficult choice on your own. Our hospice and humane euthanasia services are conducted with respect, compassion, and care. If you are worried you have a sick, elderly, or terminally ill pet that is suffering, call us to learn how we can help.
Losing a pet can be extremely upsetting, filling us with pain, sadness, depression—even anger. Our team understands these feelings, as many of us have also lost pets of our own. Whether your loss is recent or you’ve been grieving for weeks or longer, we are here to help you through this transition. We can also help your children understand and cope with their feelings.
