We are certified in Low Stress Handling and most of our staff are Fear Free Certified. Our goal is to make every visit an enjoyable one for you and your pet. Beula is a very nervous dog, but she did well having her nails trimmed while we distracted her with treats. We have a lot of tricks up our sleeves to make every visit with us a happy one!
Do you have a new puppy? We offer a series of three complimentary puppy orientation visits scheduled between your vaccine boosters! During orientation appointments, we won't do anything that your new dog would find scary. Instead, we will go over basic obedience, socialization, counterconditioning exercises, and puppy class information. These visits include lots of praise and treats - that way your puppy will build confidence and be comfortable coming to see us in the future. Our goal is to build a positive mental association with our office so your puppy loves us as much as we love him.
Please ask us about scheduling your new puppy orientation visit today!
Bones, Muscles and Joints
Keep your pet moving and grooving this spring Schedule their yearly checkup today!
Musculoskeletal diseases (conditions involve bones, muscles and joints) can affect pets of all ages. They can have aches and pains like we do. But sometimes these diseases are hard to spot. Think about your furry friend for a moment...
Have they stopped jumping on you when they greet you at the door?
Have they stopped perching on the window sill?
Is your pet acting “old?”
These changes in activity may be due to weather, age or good training. However, to guarantee your pet is at their best, we have to rule out they don't have a hidden musculoskeletal problem. Infections, hormonal imbalances, nutrition, blood disorders and arthritis can all affect your pet's activity - the way they play, move, eat and cuddle!
The good news is we have ways to prevent, cure or manage these conditions, so your pet can continue to have a good quality of life. We are committed to the wellbeing of your pet for their lifetime. The best way to do this is to book your pet’s yearly checkup today. Make an appointment and together, we’ll keep your pet’s bones, muscles and joints (and the rest of your furry friend) in good working order!
