Pet Exams and Consultations
Wellness exams afford us an opportunity to evaluate your pet’s overall health condition. These exams are critical to the health and wellbeing of your pet. As a result, it is important that they are conducted regularly. With every wellness exam, we are kept up-to-date with your pet’s health, and we can detect potential health problems before they become serious. A qualified veterinarian will examine your pet in order to obtain vital information to keep them healthy.
Vaccinating your pet against potential diseases is one of the most important things you can do to keep your pet healthy. Our furry friends can be affected by a variety of diseases, many of which are highly infectious. Keeping your pet up-to-date on vaccinations can significantly reduce the chances of your pet contracting a dangerous illness.
We strongly believe that preventative care is the best way to ensure that your pet remains healthy. By acting ahead of time, we can prevent problems from arising, giving your pet the required care necessary for him or her to live a long, happy, and healthy life. As an essential part of our preventative care, regular checkups and lab work allows us to understand your pet’s health baseline and quickly identify changes that could hint at future problems. Health problems are much easier to treat when detected early on, rather than after the disease advances.
The oral health of your of your pet is an integral part of his or her overall health. Poor dental care could lead to diseases that affect such vital organs as the liver, heart, kidneys, and bloodstream of your pet.

Indeed, dental diseases rank as some of the most prevalent health issue affecting pets.

Medical technology continues to advance, and we are proud to be a part of it. One such advancement in medical technology is radiology, a diagnostic tool and technique that gives us an inside view of the body in a completely non-invasive way. Using X-rays, we are able to create images of all the organs of your pet’s body. As a diagnostic tool, radiology helps our veterinarians detect illnesses and treat them more effectively.
Ultrasound is used when we need to observe the softer internal tissues of your pet’s anatomy. Movements such as blood flow, gastrointestinal movements and heartbeats can be observed using ultrasound. An abdominal ultrasound can observe such tissues as the gallbladder, kidneys, liver, adrenal glands, ovaries, stomach, intestines, prostate, and spleen. Ultrasounds can be used to identify abnormalities of the heart and lungs, as well as the presence of tumors.
We understand that your pet may need urgent medical assistance without an appointment. If you notice unusual symptoms or behaviors, please don’t hesitate to contact us.
