Preventative Care All of our Veterinarians believe strongly in preventative care. Annual visits for your cat and dog are important to pick up early changes before they become a bigger issue, and vaccines prevent many common and potentially deadly infections! Heart worm preventive, vaccines and an annual exam are important part of keeping your family member happy and healthy. We're happy to talk with you about a specific plan for your pet based on his/her lifestyle and risks.
Internal Medicine Our doctors all enjoy the detective work of internal medicine. Whether it's managing endocrine disease such as diabetes or a chronic condition such as kidney disease, we are well equipped to serve your pet's needs. We understand the importance of a good exam and diagnostics when needed. We place a strong emphasis on a team approach - we help you understand your pet's disease and work as a team to get your pet feeling better!

Surgery and Anesthesia Whether a planned surgery, routine or emergency, our staff and Veterinarians are equipped to handle all your surgical needs. We believe in the importance of safe anesthesia with an emphasis on pain management. We have the best anesthetic monitors to track oxygenation, heart rate, blood pressure and ECG, and our highly skilled technicians and doctors monitor your pet throughout. Our Veterinarians perform a variety of surgeries including spays, neuters, dentistry, tumor removals, abdominal surgery, fracture repair and some types of knee surgeries. We also have a laser surgery unit for certain procedures. Photo: Doctors Brown and Rohn repair a broken bone.

Pain Management We know how important it is that your pet is happy and comfortable. From short-term pain management associated with surgery to managing the chronic pain associated with arthritis, pancreatitis and chronic kidney disease, we value your pet's comfort and strive to stay at the cutting edge of pain management. We understand the importance of using multiple ways to manage pain - from various oral medications, a wide array of surgical pain medications, surgical blocks, natural supplements and alternative therapies such as acupuncture and rehabilitation exercises.
