Surgical Services


Our surgical suite provides for the performance of a wide variety of surgical procedures, including spays, neuters, declaws, mass removals, abdominal and exploratory surgeries, eye surgery, cruciate repair, thyroid removal, as well as many others.  We treat every surgery and every pet as the most important case.  We believe that it is very important to use appropriate sterile equipment, suture material and sterile attire.



We provide care for your pet throughout all stages of their life. Preventive care, including annual physical examinations and wellness screenings, are crucial in early detection and effective management of serious health problems that may arise.

 Acupuncture is one component of Traditional Chinese Veterinary Medicine (TCVM). It involves the insertion of very thin, flexible sterile needles into specific points on the body to produce a therapeutic effect. Acupuncture can be used as a treatment for a variety of conditions, including musculoskeletal, neurological, and gastrointestinal disorders, and quality of life improvement for geriatric and hospice patients.

Laser Therapy


Laser therapy, also called photobiomodulation therapy, is used to accelerate tissue healing and reduce pain and inflammation. We use laser therapy after most dental and surgical procedures and as an adjunct treatment for chronic and acute conditions such as arthritis, ear infections, and wound healing.
