Advanced Care

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.

Orthopedics

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.

Ophthalmology

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.

Chiropractic Therapy

The goal of animal chiropractic therapy is to analyze and locate subluxations and correct them without using surgery or drugs. The therapy focuses on restoring and preserving your pet’s health by reestablishing communication between the nerves and the rest of the body for optimal healing. Chiropractic therapy can help injured, sick or healthy animals alike.

Physical Rehabilitation

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.

Pain Management

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.

OFA Certification

Hip and elbow dysplasia is a common condition that affects dogs and can cause debilitating and painful conditions for your pet. OFA Hip & Elbow evaluation/certification helps pet owners and breeders to evaluate the hip joint before breeding. We strongly recommend OFA Hip & Elbow certification before breeding a female, before the purchase of a puppy, and/or to evaluate your pet's hip condition.

Regenerative Medicine

Many pets develop arthritis in their joints as they age, affecting their mobility and overall quality of life. Canine Platelet Enhancement Therapy (C-PET) is a relatively new, minimally invasive, treatment technique that uses platelet-rich plasma from your pet’s own blood to accelerate healing, help relieve joint pain associated with osteoarthritis and slow the progression of disease.

Acupuncture

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.

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.

Exotic Pet Care

Exotic pets include small mammals, reptiles, birds, fish, amphibians, and invertebrates. We recommend that all newly acquired exotic pets be kept separate from your other pets for one month after purchase. They should also receive an initial health evaluation by your veterinarian prior to introduction to your other pets. We offer a wide array of wellness services for exotic pets.

Pocket Pets

Pocket pets refer to smaller household pets such as guinea pigs, hamsters, mice, rats, gerbils, and hedgehogs. Each pet is different and requires different care. We will guide you in your pet’s care, provide helpful tips for keeping your pet safe and we offer treatments (such as vaccination, parasite screening, and spay/neuter) to keep your pet healthy.

Rabbits

Rabbits are susceptible to a variety of diseases and conditions, including overgrown teeth, hairballs, parasites, and cancer. They also tend to hide signs of illness or pain. We suggest regular dental check-ups and recommend that you have your rabbit spayed or neutered. We offer these services in our office and would love to meet your furry friend.

Health Certificates

Many of our clients travel with their pets, even when going abroad. Often they’ll need a health certificate to accompany their pet. You will want to make sure you know the requirements of the carrier and/or destination, and then plan ahead: make your appointment with the USDA (if required), have your pet’s vaccinations and tests performed in the appropriate time frame, and schedule your appointment appropriately.
