Our hospital strives to provide quality diagnostic, therapeutic, and surgical services for your pet's complete health care needs. Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions about our services. We are a fully equipped hospital with in-house laboratory, digital dental x-ray, digital complete anatomy x-ray, ultrasonic dental unit and drill as well as ultrasound.
Our appointment book is computerized which allows us to efficiently schedule appointments for you and your pet. Our team will attempt to accommodate all requests to the best of our ability. We accept appointments for medical conditions, vaccinations & annual wellness examinations, elective surgeries, dental procedures, consultations, ultrasound, and acupuncture.
If you feel you have an emergency with your pet, please call us or come to the hospital immediately. When possible, it is best to call before coming in so that a team member can advise you on your particular emergency.
We have veterinarians and personnel on duty who are trained and equipped to handle pet emergencies. Usually an emergency team consists of at least one veterinarian and additional team members working together to save a pet's life. Emergencies can be things such as "blocked" cats (cats that are unable to urinate), pets that have been hit by car, and chocolate ingestion.
We are also available for urgent care when the condition is not life-threatening. If you feel your pet needs to be seen before you are able to be present at an appointment, a "drop off" appointment may be scheduled. Please contact our receptionists who can advise you on availability.
*Please be aware that our hospital will triage emergencies so that true life-threatening situations will be handled before all non-emergent cases regardless of how long you may have already been waiting; we do this to be able to provide the BEST emergency service possible and we know that if your pet was the one in distress you would appreciate all of our efforts being focused on your family member!*
