We want to ensure a long life of health and happiness for your pet. In order to accomplish this, we recommend a series of visits for your puppy or kitten. During these visits, your pet will receive all vaccinations needed to maintain good health. In addition, a doctor will thoroughly examine your puppy or kitten to identify any potential problems. Because your pet's health and well-being will depend on more than just vaccinations, we discuss caring for your new pet, training, behavior issues and any other questions you might have.

For your adult cat or dog, we will be recommending annual visits. On these visits they will receive a comprehensive physical eam to detect signs of disease, illness and aging. We will perform intestinal parasite (worm) testing and for dogs a Heartworm, Lyme Disease, and Ehrlichia Canis test. Vaccines will be recommended depending on your pet's lifestyle. For our senior pets (seven years and older), we recommend bi-annual exams. At these visits your senior will receive a comprehensive physical exam with bloodwork, stool check, and urinalysis. The bloodwork includes complete blood count, general blood chemistries and thyroid test. Your senior pet ill still need to be vaccinated once a year depending on exposure.
