Your pet ages 7 to 11 times faster than you do and he or she can't tell you what's changing or hurting.  Because of this, we stress the importance of twice yearly physical examinations.   You wouldn't think of waiting 7 years to see your doctor, especially as you get older!   Thorough check-ups and preventive care can help alleviate serious health problems. We offer a wide range of veterinary services to keep your companions feeling their best:

We customize the vaccinations your pet receives based on age, lifestyle, breed, travel, beliefs and health.  Some vaccines are needed every six months, some every three years, some never.   If your pet doesn't need it, we don't give it.  Each time you come to see us, we will evaluate the best strategy for health care and vaccines again to make sure it is still the best!
