Complete Companion Animal Care

This service includes yearly examinations and vaccinations, puppy, kitten, and senior exams, as well as Dental and Behavioral Consultations.

Physical Examinations

Of all the services we offer our clients, we believe this is the most important one. A thorough examination allows us to pinpoint diseases before they develop. Palpation of your pet from head to toe gives us the opportunity to locate not only unwanted guests but allow us to feel internal organs that may be abnormally enlarged or other serious abnormalities. Touch is the most developed tool in our arsenal of diagnostic instruments. Naturally we do recommend having blood work processed yearly, similar to what your own doctor recommends, as this also provides us with valuable information that can only be retrieved threw in-depth analysis.

Dentistry

We do routine dental work such as cleaning and extractions by appointment. By keeping your pet's mouth healthy we are able to prevent many health problems that occur from dental hygiene. Chronic bacteria from the mouth cause strain on the heart, liver and kidneys. Not to mention that painful gums and broken teeth don't allow our pets to eat well and even playing with their favourite toys can be painful. We want your pet to live a long happy life and dental health plays a major role in your pet's overall well being.

Surgery

We are a full service veterinary clinic. We perform routine elective surgeries, such as spaying and neutering, in addition to more advanced surgeries such as bone (orthopaedic), eye (ophthalmic), soft tissue, and gastrointestinal procedures. We offer advanced surgical techniques and technology. Our patients are carefully screened for safety, and anaesthetics are specifically tailored to your pet. Surgical services and facilities include trained veterinary and technical staff, to ensure the safest, most efficient, state-of-the-art procedures for your pet, and advanced sterilization techniques. Our doctors are able to perform most surgical procedures. However, for cases that are more involved, we do have wonderful relationships with surgeons and radiologists to whom we can refer your pet.

Radiology Services (X-Ray)

Radiography aids us in quickly assessing any physical injury or anomaly that may be affecting your pets well being. We can then quickly determine the appropriate course of action, medical and/or surgical, saving time and stress for you and your pet.
