Our Services

Preventative Care


Annual physical exams

Annual physical exams are recommended for all animals. These exams are the first step in detecting an underlying disease before it becomes a bigger problem.  As animals age, they are more prone to health problems, therefore, we recommend semi-annual exams once a dog or cat reaches seven years of age.



Vaccinations are an important part of our preventative health care plan.  Rabies and Distemper vaccines are considered core vaccines for all dogs and cats.  Elective vaccines for dogs include:  Kennel Cough (Bordatella) , Lyme Disease, Leptospirosis and Canine Influenza. The Feline Leukemia Virus vaccine is considered an elective vaccine for cats. During your pet's annual wellness exam we will formulate an individualized vaccination schedule based on your pet's age and its relative risk of exposure to disease.


Annual Parasite Screening

We follow the guidelines of the Companion Animal Parasite Council and recommend annual fecal parasite testing for all dogs and cats. We recommend annual blood testing for heartworm and tick borne diseases like Lyme disease,  Ehrlichia and Anaplasma for all dogs. 

Flea and Tick preventative is recommended year-round for dogs and cats.

Heartworm preventative is also recommended year-round for both dogs and cats.

Behavior counseling is offered for new puppies and kittens. 

We regularly send both postcard and email reminders for procedures, vaccinations and examinations.

We carry the full line of Hill's Prescription Diets.  These therapeutic diets are designed to treat many conditions in both dogs and cats.
