By the age of three, most dogs and cats show some signs of periodontal disease. This causes pain as it erodes the supporting structures of the teeth, and bacteria growth that can spread through your dog or cat’s bloodstream, ultimately causing damage to internal organs. This is why we take so much pride in our high quality dental services. We maintain a digital dental xray in order to accurately diagnose your pet’s condition, and perform cleanings under the gum line (where periodontal disease lurks), along with procedures that are needed when the disease is more advanced, such as extractions.
Acupuncture works by stimulating your pet’s natural healing mechanisms in order to reduce pain and inflammation.It can improve blood flow, oxygenation, and reduce toxins in the bloodstream. Acupuncture is typically most effective in treating conditions with inflammation and pain, such as arthritis, degenerative joint disease, trauma, and more. It is a component of Traditional Chinese Veterinary Medicine (TCVM) and has been practiced with success for over two thousand years.
Cold laser therapy works at the cellular level in order to accelerate recovery. Cold Laser therapy is often used in order to treat injury, post-surgical recovery, or in inflammatory or chronically painful conditions, such as arthritis. It is a revolutionary treatment that can significantly aid your pet’s pain levels and recovery time.
Laparoscopic (or “minimally invasive”) surgery is a modern surgical technique that has several advantages overtraditional methods. Not all surgical procedures are candidates for laparoscopic, but the ones that are typically cause less postoperative pain for the dog or cat, reduced need for pain medication, and faster recovery time. This is a cutting-edge technique that we believe to be an exceptional improvement for many surgical procedures.
Commonly referred to as an “echo” this is a non-invasive procedure used to evaluate the internal organs of a dog or cat using ultrasound technology. This is useful for a variety of diagnostic purposes, as it gives the veterinarian a look inside your pet’s heart, and can also be used to assess the functioning of other organs in real time.
Commonly referred to as a “sonogram” this is a non-invasive procedure used to evaluate the abdominal organs inside a dog or cat using ultrasound technology. This is commonly useful to diagnose the source of vomiting, diarrhea, blood in urine, and changes in appetite or weight.
Orthopedic surgery is often necessary in case of traumatic injury, joint injury, or to repair congenital defects. In some cases – such as when the surgery is atypically complex, we will bring in a board-certified orthopedic surgeon. Board-certified orthopedic surgeons have undergone years of additional training and testing to ensure that they are the best of the best at what they do. It is a rare and revered distinguishment.

Every digital x-ray we take is sent to a board-certified radiologist for review. Board-certificatied radiologists undergo years of additional training and testing in order to ensure they are the best of the best in the field. X-rays are a crucial component of modern veterinary diagnostics.
Embark Genetic Testing
With this tool, we are able to analyze your dog’s DNA in order to assess risk for any genetic diseases, and put a preventative plan in place to mitigate any risk your dog may face. We believe genetics will play an increasingly large role in animal medicine as our understanding of the genome expands, and we are able to more effectively utilize its study.
Our team is trained in low stress visits. Low stress visits are important for several reasons. First, when a dog or cat experiences stress, it is reflected throughout their physiology. This can actually interfere with different measurements and tests that veterinarians count on for diagnosis. Also, pet parents are less likely to take their dog or cat in for routine wellness appointments if they know their pet suffers stress, which sacrifices an important component of their health care. Low stress means a happier pet, and often, a longer life!
