Spay & Neuter
It is essential for the protection of your pets that they be spayed or neutered. This prevents them from wandering in search of a mate, potentially putting them in harm’s way. It also greatly reduces or eliminates their chances of developing certain types of cancers and infections.
Our Veterinary Technicians can diagnose and treat gingivitis and periodontal disease. We will also clean and polish your pet’s teeth to reduce risk of disease.
Other Surgical Treatments
We offer the following advanced surgical treatments:
Laparoscopy and Arthroscopy
We also offer orthopedic surgeries:
ACL Knee Surgery
Back Surgery (Hemilaminectomy)
Laser therapy using our Companion therapy laser system is a sterile, pain-free, drug-free, non-surgical procedure used to treat a wide range of injuries, wounds, fractures, neurological conditions, dermatological problems and pain.
This treatment encourages the body to heal from within by allowing injured cells to absorb non-thermal photons of light, which stimulates the cells quicker. This increases circulation, which reduces pain and speeds up healing. During a laser therapy session, your pet will receive a massage and a near-immediate decrease in pain. Therefore, your pet will be comfortable and eased from anxiety.
Laser therapy can be used for:
Post surgical pain relief
Degenerative joint disease
And many more conditions.
When you need to go away, you can trust your pets with us. Our clean, temperature-controlled, indoor boarding facility is managed by a full staff of trained kennel technicians. We can also administer any medications or special food if you just let our technicians know!
For cats, we offer a room with multi-level cat condos and windows overlooking the trees and birds, providing them with interest and stimulation. Meanwhile, our canine boarding facility has enough sizes to keep any breed comfortable. For large dogs or dogs boarding together, we provide 3’ by 6’ runs, while we have several cage sizes for other dogs. In each run is a PetCot, while each cage has an orthopedic foam pad. All dogs are walked and exercised at least three times a day. For a tour of our boarding facility, call ahead. We offer tours Monday through Friday between 11:00 a.m. and 3:00 p.m.
If you would like your pet to receive VIP treatment, for an extra $12 a day we give your dog two extra five-minute walks each day and daily brushing, while your cat receives two five-minute play sessions and a brushing each day.
Our full-time groomer, Julie, has been with us since 2003 and has experience with breed standard cuts as well as working with mixed breeds. She will work with you to provide your dog or cat with the look you want, as well as offering recommendations for what will work best. Grooming appointments are available Monday through Friday, but please call ahead. All pets are groomed on a first-come, first-serve basis. We can also set up standing grooming appointments so you don’t have to worry about scheduling a new appointment each time your pet needs it!
