To keep EVERYONE safe, it is of the upmost importance to keep up with vaccines and appointments. Whether you are a parent of many animals or one, shots will keep all family members safe. When a first-time animal comes into your life that animal should be taken to a Veterinarian right away. Animals can appear healthy but can be far from it. An outside animal could pose a grave threat to your family and animals by presenting disease into a home without immediate indications. Do not take a chance and consult with a Veterinarian right away and be honest about the intentions of animal care (inside or outside pets).

We offer same day urgent care appointments for things such as skin/ear infections, limping, vomiting and diarrhea. Please give us a call to schedule an appointment.

If an emergency arises, after hours, we recommend that you take your pet immediately to the nearest emergency clinic.

All shots, surgeries, dentals and care performed at our Veterinary clinic will be fully explained and an estimate will be handed to the client. Questions are welcomed at all times. Some questions can only be answered by the Veterinarian.

Different animals need different things. Your pets age, breed, lifestyle, and background (whether they came from a shelter, rescue, breeder or friend) has a huge effect on what vaccines, diagnostics and preventatives they need. Please be sure to pricing any and all health records your pup came with to help your veterinarian help you.

Yes, patients are seen by appointment only.
