Tags can come off but a microchip stays with your pet forever. For permanent and unique identification, have your pet microchipped with the Home Again® microchip. Shelters, pounds and veterinary clinics across the country scan lost pets and reunite them quickly with their owners when they are chipped. Our doctors will place the chip into your pet and our office staff will register your pet online with Home Again. All you have to do after that is update your information if any of your information changes.
We will provide guidance regarding your pet's nutritional needs for each life stage, including dietary requirements for growth, weight maintenance and performance. As a general rule, any nationally recognized name-brand food, manufactured within the United States should always be used to feed your pets. Also be sure treats you provide have been manufactured here.
Heartworm disease affects pets throughout the entire United States. It develops when a pet is bitten by a mosquito carrying microscopic heartworm larvae. The larvae penetrate the skin and migrate into the pet's bloodstream. Adult heartworms can grow 10 to 12 inches in length and make their home in the right side of the heart and pulmonary arteries, often causing lung disease and heart failure.
We recommend for all our our patients that a yearly fecal test be done to be sure your pet is free of internal parasites. We also recommend that your pet receive heartworm and internal parasite preventatives year round since exposure to internal parasites can occur year round. Birds, rabbits, and rodents are common carries of these parasites.

A complete medical assessment begins with a thorough physical examination whereby your pet’s eyes, ears, skin, cardiovascular, neurological, gastrointestinal and skeletal systems are examined for any abnormalities. Blood tests can be performed as necessary to assess the proper functioning of your pet’s kidneys, liver, pancreas, and endocrine system including the thyroid gland and adrenal glands

Spaying refers to the surgical procedure performed on female dogs and cats to render them infertile. There are many benefits to spaying your female companion. First, you will contribute to the prevention of the dog and cat overpopulation. Second, spaying will eliminate the sometimes ‘messy’ heat cycles that attract male dogs to your house from miles away. Third, you will help prevent diseases in your pet such as pyometra (infection in the uterus) and mammary cancer. Spaying involves surgical removal of both ovaries and the uterus.
Neutering refers to the surgical procedure performed on male dogs and cats to render them infertile. There are many benefits to neutering your male companion. First, you will contribute to the prevention of the dog and cat overpopulation. Second, neutering will eliminate undesirable and at times, embarrassing behavior in your male companion.
A local anesthetic causes a loss of sensation to a ‘local’ area. Small surgical or diagnostic procedures may require a local anesthetic to perform. Taking eye pressures to test for glaucoma is an example of a procedure done with local anesthesia.
As in human medicine, we have a variety of medications available to manage your pet’s pain both before and after surgery. Every pet undergoing a surgical procedure is given an injection of pain medication before surgery. The level of pain is assessed following surgery and any needed medications are given during recovery. Appropriate medications will be sent home with the pet if our veterinarians feel they are necessary.
Dermatology refers to the study of the skin. Skin disease is a frequently observed problem in dogs and cats. Diagnosing a skin problem in your pet may simply require an examination by a veterinarian; however, many skin diseases or problems require additional steps to accurately obtain a diagnosis. Additional diagnostic procedures may include blood work, urinalysis, skin scraping, biopsies, etc.
A heart problem can affect your pet at any age although it is more often found in older pets. Heart failure occurs when the heart no longer has the ability to pump blood around the body effectively. Heart failure can lead to congestive heart failure. If an animal is suffering from congestive heart failure, it usually accumulates fluid in the lungs, although it can result in fluid accumulation in the abdomen as well.
Endocrinology is the study of hormones and there are several common endocrine disorders found in dogs and cats. Hypothyroidism is often diagnosed in dogs. Hypothyroidism indicates that the animal has low levels of circulating thyroid hormone. The opposite is true for cats. They are frequently diagnosed with high levels of circulating thyroid hormones.
