Complete medical assessment: An annual checkup is a complete medical assessment that begins with a thorough physical examination. Your pet’s eyes, ears, skin, heart, digestive, and skeletal system are examined for any abnormalities. Annual wellness exams include routine screenings for a variety of potential diseases and conditions.
Experience the difference
Advanced Video Otoscope: Our exam rooms feature Video Otoscopes, this new tool allows the doctor and pet owner to better visualize small areas such as the ears, nose, and throat through the use of a small non-invasive probe. Owners are able to see what the doctor sees on the LCD screen in front of them. This thorough examination is performed right in the exam room and is included in every annual examination for no additional charge.

Full in-house laboratory: We’re very proud of our complete in-house laboratory, which eliminates the need to send tests into outside laboratories. We are able to perform a wide variety of diagnostic tests including, but not limited to: complete blood count, blood chemistry, electrolytes, thyroid testing, heartworm testing and urinalysis with bacterial culture. Results are ready within minutes! This is crucial for emergency care of your pet and rapid retesting of values. Blood profiles can be tailored to your pet’s needs including pre-surgical, senior and wellness profiles.
For more specialized testing, or if we want the opinion of a veterinary pathologist, we send samples to a leading veterinary reference laboratory.
