Additional Services

We’re here to make your life easier.

In addition to our full-service veterinary offerings, we have even more services for anything you and your pet may need.

Microchip Pet Identification

Microchipping has become a very popular and safe way to permanently identify your pet and you as the owner in the unfortunate case that your pet is lost. Microchipping involves placement of a small electronic chip the size and shape of a piece of rice just under the skin in the neck area. A needle is used to inject the chip. The injection is comparable to a regular vaccine injection.

If your pet becomes lost and is transported to a humane society, shelter, or veterinary facility they will be able to scan your pet for the chip and contact you. The scanner is similar to a scanner found in the grocery store.

We advise you to use this system of identification as well as a collar identification system on your pet.

Nutritional Counseling

Animals have various nutritional requirements depending on their age, breed and health status. Decisions regarding your pet’s nutrition should not be made without first consulting a veterinarian.

Geriatric animals have significantly different requirements than young growing puppies or kittens. Animals with diabetes or kidney disease also have different requirements.

Your veterinarian will be able to make informed decisions regarding your pet’s choice of diet given their age, breed and health status.

Puppies and Kittens: Growing puppies and kittens have different nutritional needs than adult dogs and cats. There are a variety of pet foods available on the market. We have selected nutritionally balanced brands that we are confident will meet your puppies and kittens growth requirements.

Giant Breeds: Nutrition for giant breed dogs has become a hot topic of discussion among giant breed dog owners. Giant breeds include, but are not limited to, Great Danes, Irish Wolfhounds and Giant Schnauzers. These breeds have unique dietary requirements and we can provide you with the information you need to make the correct decisions about your pet’s nutrition. We discuss these requirements with all new puppy owners on their first puppy wellness visit. If you have any concerns regarding the nutrition of your giant breed, we would be pleased to discuss them with you further.

Pharmacy

Our in-house pharmacy is well stocked and contains supplies that allow us to immunize and treat your pet.

We also carry Purina prescription diets and we can special order Royal Canin and Hills prescription diets.

Supplies

Pet Food, Supplements & Treats: We offer a wide variety of specialty and therapeutic diets for all lifestages and disease conditions. We also provide special supplements for general wellness and for acute and chronic disease conditions.

Is your pet overweight but you would still like to give him or her a treat without feeling guilty? We have special calorie-reduced treats that you can give to your pet without worry. We also carry treats that help prevent gum disease.

Veterinary consultation is required for our prescription diet foods and our supplements. Call us to schedule an appointment to discuss your pet’s nutritional needs.

Flea & Tick Prevention: Fleas and ticks can cause problems for pets ranging from minor to life-threatening. Not only can these parasites cause severe itching, irritation, and allergies, but they can also transmit tapeworms and diseases. Fleas can infest dogs, cats, ferrets, mice, and rats. And fleas don’t just stay on pets; they can bite people, too. For more information, contact us or see the flea article in the Pet Health Library on our site.

You don’t want these blood-sucking parasites on your pet or in your home. We can help keep them away or help you get rid of them if they’ve already found their way inside. Call us to find out how to eliminate and control fleas or to start your pet on a preventive today.

Behavioral Counseling

Your pet’s behavior affects every interaction you have with them on a daily basis. This dictates everything from mealtime, to exercise time, to downtime such as relaxing on the couch with other family members. When a pet has a behavior problem, the consequences are far-reaching. Behavior problems threaten the bond you have with your pet by damaging the loving relationship that should exist between you. We’re here to help.

Referral Services

The majority of your pet’s health needs will be met at our practice; however, there are circumstances where a veterinary specialist may be required. Under these circumstances, we may direct you and your pet to a specialist who is a veterinarian with advanced knowledge in a particular area of veterinary medicine or surgery. In some cases, specialized equipment is required to perform procedures that are not routinely performed by general veterinary practitioners. Examples of veterinary specialists include ophthalmologists, oncologists, surgeons, etc.
