Meet Dr. Burk, not just a reptile Dad but also our dedicated reptile veterinarian. Schedule an appointment with him for all your snake, lizard, and other reptile veterinary needs. Annual wellness examinations for reptiles are highly recommended, providing an opportunity to discuss important aspects such as diet and housing. Remember, sick reptiles may hide their problems, so don't hesitate to reach out to us as soon as you suspect something is wrong. Your scaly companions deserve the best care, and Dr. Burk is here to ensure their well-being.

Laboratory Testing

Elevating diagnostic capabilities, we measure essential blood parameters swiftly through our in-house laboratory, ensuring rapid results for veterinarians. Our priority canine tests focus on detecting Heartworm infection, emphasizing the importance of an annual screening. Recognizing the prevalence of intestinal parasites in dogs and cats of all ages, we conduct regular tests to proactively prevent diseases that these parasites may cause, safeguarding the health of both pets and their human companions. At our facility, efficiency and preventive care go hand in paw to ensure the well-being of your beloved pets.

Osteopathic Treatments

Our commitment to holistic care extends to recommending non-traditional remedies proven to enhance recovery in certain diseases. Presently, our laser therapy has gained popularity, especially among dogs with arthritis, as it effectively alleviates pain and enhances mobility. Looking ahead, we are excited to introduce additional therapeutic options, including physical therapy and Eastern remedies, in mid to late 2018. By embracing a diverse range of treatments, we strive to offer comprehensive and innovative solutions to promote the well-being and recovery of your beloved pets.

Puppy and Kitten Care

Prioritize your puppy or kitten's health by ensuring they receive complete immunization against region-specific diseases using reputable and effective vaccines. During these initial appointments, our veterinary medical staff will conduct thorough examinations and testing to identify specific disease risks tailored to your beloved pet. These early interactions are opportunities to establish a special relationship with our team, creating a foundation that will endure throughout your pet's life. Additionally, we offer the convenience of an e-medical history accessible anywhere, anytime. This digital record includes reminders, due dates, medication history, and laboratory results, providing comprehensive and easily accessible information to support the ongoing care and well-being of your furry companion.

X-Ray & Ultrasound

Distinguishing ourselves from human doctors' offices, we offer the convenience of on-site imaging equipment. Our advanced facilities include digitally recorded X-rays and sonograms, elevating our veterinarians' diagnostic capabilities. These imaging tools enable us to precisely view the size and shape of bones and internal organs, aiding in the accurate assessment and diagnosis of your pet's health. With the seamless integration of cutting-edge technology, we prioritize efficiency and accuracy in providing the best possible care for your beloved companions.

Dental Care

Maintaining clean teeth is crucial for the well-being of our furry friends, as essential for cats and dogs as it is for people. Our comprehensive preventive services encompass X-rays, thorough cleaning, and meticulous polishing to ensure your pet's dental health. If your beloved companion is experiencing bad breath, it could be an early sign that dental care is necessary. At our clinic, we offer complimentary consultations to assess the specific dental care needs of your pet, because we understand that a healthy smile contributes to a happy and vibrant life for your four-legged family member.

Laser Therapy

We advocate for osteopathic treatments, particularly therapeutic laser, as a valuable addition to traditional medicine. This innovative approach proves beneficial in managing inflammatory-based conditions such as arthritis, ear infections, and certain skin issues like hot spots and lick granulomas. Our comprehensive care includes utilizing therapeutic laser to enhance healing post-surgical and dental procedures. By seamlessly integrating these advanced techniques, we aim to provide optimal and holistic care, ensuring the well-being and comfort of your furry companions.

Parasite Control & Prevention

Addressing the persistent challenges of intestinal worms, heartworms, fleas, and ticks, we emphasize the critical importance of preventive medications for all dogs and cats. Beyond safeguarding your pets, prevention is paramount as certain worms can transmit to humans, leading to severe diseases. Heartworm disease, known for its potential fatality, involves risky and costly treatments. Our stocked preventive products are not only affordable but also highly effective in preventing fleas, ticks, intestinal worms, and heartworm. Investing in prevention not only ensures the well-being of your pets but also protects your family from potential health risks associated with these parasites.

Preventative Care

Proactively safeguard your pet's health by scheduling regular wellness examinations, typically on an annual basis, to identify and prevent potential issues. Ensure comprehensive immunization against prevalent regional diseases using reputable and effective vaccines. For senior pets, frequent checkups are essential to monitor internal organ function and address age-related concerns such as arthritis or obesity. Additionally, regular examinations play a crucial role in ensuring the ongoing effectiveness and safety of long-term medications. By prioritizing preventive care through routine checkups, you contribute to the longevity and well-being of your cherished furry companion.
