In your search for a veterinary facility, we believe you should expect high quality care as well as great service. Our goal has been to assemble a veterinary health care team committed to providing exceptional client service and veterinary health care. Our commitment to you is to continue to offer our world class service and a state of the art veterinary facility.
Your pet's annual vet check-up will include a total physical exam, with a thorough investigation of your pet's head, body and tail, and all assorted cavities. It's a good idea to keep an accurate medical diary not only of the procedures and vaccinations your pet receives at the vet, but also of notes on things like your pet's elimination habits and any physical changes or unusual occurrences. Keep track of small shifts in your pet's behavior, including urinary marking habits and mood swings, along with diet and routine modifications. Take this notebook when you visit the vet. These seemingly unrelated occurrences may help explain results of your pet's medical tests. Also, if you need to change vets, it's good to have this journal to provide a complete medical history.
As we are both primary care providers and emergent care, we employ many skilled veterinarians. This means you are able to find a veterinarian who is calm, compassionate and willing to explain all the procedures your pet undergoes. Try to find a vet with whom both you and your pet feel comfortable. For standard annual exams and vaccines, you will probably want to visit our wellness clinic to avoid the rush of emergency appointments.
Should your pet require any procedure that involves anesthesia, we want you to feel that you can trust our clinic with qualified staff and facilities to undertake surgery and perform sedated procedures with ease. Because of the general risks inherent to anesthesia, especially for very old, very young or very ill pets, your veterinarian will likely suggest a few exams, including a chest X-ray and lab work of blood and urine, before your pet is anesthetized. During the procedure an IV drip may be needed and antibiotics may be necessary before and after.
If upon examination, our veterinarians determine that a specialist consultation is needed we are able to refer you to veterinarians in more specialized fields such as oncology, orthopedic surgery or internal medicine.
