We feel regular examinations are very important for early detection of medical problems and can be wonderfully assuring if no problems exist.  The care should start as early as puppy or kitten stage and continue on till their geriatric years.

We are a small animal hospital and believe the most effective way of protecting your dog or cat is to provide well-tested combinations of vaccines to help prevent various common and sometimes deadly diseases.

Dental care

Increasingly, clients are becoming more aware of the importance of having their pets teeth examined and cleaned on a regular basis just as it is important for their own teeth and gums.  Our services include cleaning, scaling, polishing, tooth extraction and also providing a prescription diet food made by science diet called T/D, that provides protection against tartar, plaque build up and stains.

We provide a full minor and main surgery room for our patients when a surgery is needed.  Our patients are closely monitored before, during and after surgery.  Our surgeries include the most basic to some extremes.  We also have specialist and board certified doctors on call for specific treatments, and laser surgery which provides the benefits of less pain, less bleeding, less chance of infection, shorter hospital stays and faster recovery.


Our facility is equipped with an in-house laboratory including, parasite testing, hematology and serology.  We also use an independent veterinary laboratory for specialized diagnostics.

We have one of the latest X-ray machines and can provide routine diagnostic radiographs in minutes.

We provide grooming and bathing Services. Our groomers are available by appointment Mon-Fri. We do require that pets be current on vaccinations. Our groomers open at 8am and accept afternoon appointments if pre-arranged.


We provide a comfortable boarding facility for dogs and cats of our clients.  Pets must be current on all required vaccinations for boarding.  Prior reservations must be made.  Our kennels are indoors for both cats and dogs, although we do leash walk dogs 2-3 times daily in our large backyard. We provide Hill's Science Diet food for all animals while boarding.  We do provide other services, such as grooming, doctor exams, dental care, laboratory work etc. while pets are boarding with us.

New clients must provide proper paperwork from their veterinarian showing Rabies, DHPP, Leptospirosis, and Bordetella vaccines being current for dogs and FVRCCP, Leukemia, and Rabies vaccines being current for cats. If vaccines are not current we would be happy to update them during their stay with us.
