Permanent Identification: We offer microchip implants utilizing the Home Again system. It has become routine procedure for every shelter and humane society in the United States to scan strays for implants before anything else. If your pet has such an implant, a simple phone call gives the shelter your name and number, and enables them to restore your pet to you quickly and safely.
Behavioral Counseling: We can provide advice regarding the correction of problems such as excessive barking, chewing, spraying, digging, house soiling, and aggression.
Consultations: There are certain types of procedures, both diagnostic and therapeutic, that we are unequipped to handle. When those are required, we are able to refer your pet to one of a number of local veterinary specialists. Those specialties available include, but are not limited to, opthalmology, neurology, cardiology, dermatology, behavior, internal medicine, nephrology, radiology, oncology, surgery (both soft tissue and orthopedic), dentistry, rehabilitative therapy, acupuncture, and exotic animal medicine.
