Thank you all so much for your understanding and patience these past years with the changes we had to institute due to the pandemic. We all know just how unprecedented it was, and we appreciate your cooperation in helping us continue to provide care for your beloved pet while keeping our team healthy.

We are excited for yet another change!

Beginning Monday, April 4, 2022, we will no longer limit the number of family members present for examinations. We will also be allowing clients into the building for technician appointments. Due to the small size of the lobby, we still ask that you call from your car upon arrival and provide a history over the phone so we can limit traffic in the building. We have found that the decreased noise in the lobby has seemed to really relax many of your pets. We will gladly escort you into an exam room when it is ready.

For our day admission appointments and surgical patients, we will remain curbside only due to the limited space in the hospital.

If you do not wish to come into the office for your pet’s appointment or simply enjoy the convenience of curbside, we are pleased to continue to offer this as an option.
A mask will not be required in accordance with our county’s guidelines. You may see some of our staff continue to wear them. If you would feel more comfortable if our team members wear a mask during your interaction, we will happily do so.

The lobby will also be open for prescription medication and food pick-ups. Again, if you would prefer to have these brought to your car, please just call in when you are here and ask!

We look forward to seeing you and your pet!

Pet Laser Therapy

Veterinary diagnostics are some of the most important tools we use in veterinary medicine. They help us detect disease before there are physical symptoms. This allows us to treat your pet more effectively (and more affordably too) before the disease has time to progress.
Laser therapy is a drug-free and non-invasive therapy. Common conditions that are treated with the help of laser therapy include arthritis/degenerative joint disease, chronic pain, spinal disc disease, wounds, surgical incisions, ear hematomas, muscle sprain/strains, fractures, and so much more.

It utilizes a process known as photobiomodulation (PBM) therapy. During this process photons or packets of light energy, are sent deep into tissue without damaging it. This energy is absorbed by the cell and increases fuel or energy within impaired or injured cells. This increased energy/ATP production leads to decreased inflammation, decreased pain, and accelerated healing.

Treatment protocols are unique to each patient and condition. Treatment times will vary. Laser therapy can be used as a complementary adjunct therapy to other treatments and medications. Your pet will feel a gentle and soothing warmth during the treatment. They may have relief following their first treatment as pain and inflammation are reduced. For some conditions, a series of treatments may be necessary before you see results due to the severity or complexity of the underlying condition.
