We thoroughly cover all aspects of internal medicine including:
When your pet begins to act abnormally it doesn’t necessarily mean he or she is suffering from a physical problem. It could in fact be a behavioral issue. Pets can often be affected by things such as obsessive disorders, excessive excitability, and separation anxiety. If we feel the animal is showing symptoms of these afflictions we’ll bring in a trained animal behaviorist to help find the origin of the problem. The issue can then be quickly resolved by a personalized program which will be developed specifically for your pet.

The best way to take care of a pet’s oral health is to be sure their teeth and gums are cleaned regularly with the best techniques available. We use ultrasonic cleaning methods to get below and above the gum lines of their teeth to keep them problem free. We also polish their teeth to a smooth and healthy finish as a way to combat plaque and solidify and strengthen the tooth enamel. Your pet’s teeth are then effectively desensitized with a fluoride treatment. We use digital radiographs to make sure we don’t miss any potential problems and also offer advanced dental treatments including root canals, caps, and braces.
Some of the diagnostic methods we implement include:
- CBC (Complete Blood Count)
- Chemistry Panel
- Digital Radiology (X-Rays)
- Heartworm Testing
- Feline Leukemia/Feline Aids Testing
- Intestinal Parasite Screening
- Fluid and Tissue Cytology
- Ear and Skin Cytology
- Fungal Cultures
