Routine Examinations/Health Checks:
Routine health examinations can detect many minor health issues before they become a more serious problem. Our veterinarians will check over your animal to ensure they do not have any heart, lung, eye, ear, or mouth issues as well as ask you a number of questions to better assess your pets overall health.
Our current recommendations for dogs are as follows:
Rabies: 1st dose at 12 weeks of age or older. Revaccinate under 1 year following 1st dose, then triennially as long as vaccination does not lapse.
Combination Vaccines: Protect your dog against canine distemper, canine adenovirus-type 2, parainfluenza, and parvovirus with or without leptospirosis depending on risk factors. Puppies will need this vaccination at 6, 9, and 12 weeks of age without leptospirosis at weeks 6 and 9. We recommend this vaccination annually after 12 weeks of age as long as they have already had two vaccinations.
Optional vaccinations for dogs:
Bordetella (Kennel Cough) vaccine is administered every 6 months if dogs are boarded or around other dogs frequently.
Lyme Disease vaccine is administered if dogs are exposed to ticks frequently, such as hunting dogs, with the 1st dose given at 9 weeks of age or older and boostered 2 -3 weeks later followed by annual revaccination.
Our current recommendations for cats are as follows:
Rabies: 1st dose at 12 weeks of age or older. Revaccinate annually.
Combination Vaccines: Protect your cat against feline rhinotracheitis, feline panleukopenia virus (feline distemper), and calicivirus, with or without chlamydia psittaci and feline leukemia virus depending on risk factors. Kittens will need this vaccination at 6, 9, and 12 weeks of age without feline leukemia at weeks 6 and 9. We recommend this vaccination annually after 12 weeks of age as long as they have already had two vaccinations.
Microchipping your cat or dog can help ensure your beloved pet is returned home should he or she ever be lost. We carry Pro ID chips, which is a common brand of microchips that will be compatible with readers at animal shelters and other clinics. Our Pro ID microchip reader is also able to detect most all brands of microchips.
If you have any concerns about your pet's health, we offer in-house blood analysis, ultrasound, and x-ray to help diagnose your pet's health issue. We also have a full in-house pharmacy to treat your pet without any delay.
General Soft Tissue Surgery:
We are happy to provide a number of soft tissue surgeries such as spays, neuters, mass removals, etc...here at the clinic. Routine surgeries are performed on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Emergency surgeries are performed whenever the need should arise. Advanced or severe cases are generally referred to specialists.
Dental examinations are performed during regular appointments. Regular teeth cleanings and extractions are performed on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Dental emergencies are seen all hours of all days.
We offer both dog and cat boarding at our clinic. Space is somewhat limited due the overnight stays of some of our routine surgery patients, so please call in advance to ensure your pet has a home away from home while you are out of town, especially if you will be gone during a weekend or holiday. With the completion of our addition we hope to be more accommodating with our new kennel room and lots more kennel space.

We offer some grooming options for your pets such as summer haircuts and medicated baths. If you are looking for more complete grooming services, we will refer you to one of our local groomers.
