Our pets pack a lot of life into a shorter lifespan, making annual exams very important to keep up with their physical wellness.  Thorough check ups and preventative care are an important part of longevity and well-being.  We offer an extensive range of comprehensive services to keep your animal friends healthy and comfortable into their senior years.

Surgical Services:   We perform a wide range of routine and emergency surgical procedures with intensive monitoring for all surgeries including ECG, O2 and Co2 levels, temperature  and BP monitoring by experienced staff.  The pet's physical and mental comfort is a priority to our staff.

Anesthesia:  We use the safest available anesthetics to ensure an extra margin of safety for all ages and breeds of pets. The patient's vital signs are extensively monitored.  Warming beds and warm IV fluids ensure temperatures are well maintained for optimum recovery.  

Internal medicine consults: We offer referrals to internal medicine specialists for ultrasound, radiographic second opinions and unusual medical cases.
