24 Hour Patient Monitoring
We are staffed to monitor all hospitalized patients 24 hours a day. Our experienced veterinary assistants monitor patients for any change in status and inform the patient's doctor.
Pets with contagious or suspected contagious conditions have a separate ward to prevent their spreading. This ward's equipment and laundry is not used in any other department of the hospital.
Central to our main treatment area is our critical care ward. Patients here are visible from nearly anywhere in treatment making it easier for veterinary assistants to keep track of their status.
Separate Cat and Dog Rooms
Cats and dogs are hospitalized separately so as to maintain a calming environment for our healing patients.
12pm-2pm and after 6pm. Our veterinary assistants request you call before visiting so we may prepare your pet for your visit.

What To Expect at Check-In
Surgical patients are advised not to eat after midnight the night of their procedure. They are to be brought in at 8:30 in the morning to be checked in. You will check in with a CSR who will guide you through signing the anesthetic paperwork and alert the doctor you are here. The doctor will check your pet in, go over the procedure and have you sign the treatment plan. At that time you will be free to go and leave your pet in the best of hands.
What to Expect While Your Pet is Here
We will contact you regarding your pets status after surgery at the number you leave for us but you are always welcome to call us anytime to find out how your pet is doing. We understand this can be a nerve-wracking time for you and want you to be comfortable with your pet's care. We will also call you when your pet is ready to go home.
What to Expect at Pick Up
At the time of discharge, you will check-out with a CSR who will alert your pet's veterinary assistant that you are here. The veterinary assistant will come up and go over discharge instructions, including any medications and special care your pet may need and may include scheduling a follow-up visit. This is a great time to ask any and all questions you might have. They will then reunite you with your pet and you are free to go. If at any time you have questions after picking your pet up, please call us.
What is Laser Surgery?
Laser surgery is essentially amplification of light to cut tissue. The laser heats and vaporizes the water in the tissue which causes separation. Laser surgery means less pain, bleeding, and swelling. It is more sterile as it destroys viruses and bacteria as it goes. It means a precise, shorter procedure with, most importantly, a faster recovery time.
On-Site Digital X-Rays
In the event that your pet needs imaging, we have on-site digital x-rays which will be reviewed immediately by your doctor as well as sent to radiologists for their review. These x-rays are easily viewed in the rooms and automatically attached to your pet's medical record.
We work closely with Board-Certified Ultrasound Veterinarians who are able to come in and do a thorough ultrasound study on your pet. They write a report and talk with your doctor at the same time. Again, this report becomes a part of your pet's medical record.
In-House Diagnostic Laboratory
We are able to run many lab tests in house enabling us to get results quickly for urgent cases.
Additional Diagnostics Available
Endoscopy, Electrocardiogram, Pulse Oximetry
Our vaccine protocols are designed to minimize side-effects and provide maximum protection to your pet. There are several core vaccines that are highly recommended for all pets and there are also various lifestyle vaccines that may be recommended depending on the life your cat or dog leads. Your doctor will be able to go over these vaccines and explain what may be required for your pet's health.
We have a Pet Obesity Prevention Program (POPP) which is designed to help owners decide on the best way to feed and exercise their pet. Your doctor will also discuss with you the kinds of food that would be best for your pet through their life stages to maintain optimum weight and nutrition.
Parasite Detection and Prevention
We recommend prevention for all pets for parasites and testing on a yearly basis. Many parasites your pet carry may be transferred to you and take away from your pet's overall health. Discuss with your doctor what prevention you should be using and when you should next test your pet for parasites.

Dental disease is the most common disorder seen in our pet cats and dogs. Over 70% of pets over 3 years of age have dental disease, and bacteria from the infected mouth can contribute to other conditions such as heart or kidney disease. The good news is that dental disease can be treated and halted with professional care along with home care.
Oral Assessment, Treatment and Prevention
Our professional team will use state-of-the art equipment to perform a thorough evaluation and treatment of your pet’s mouth, and will teach you the techniques to use at home to keep your pet healthy and pain-free.
Anesthesia is essential to the performance of dental treatment. The risks of anesthesia are minimized by your veterinarian, who will tailor the anesthetic protocol to your pet’s needs, and the technicians, who will monitor your pet closely throughout the procedure.
