Routine physical exams are at the heart of our practice. With a good yearly check up, many illnesses can be prevented before they start. When illness does occur, we are able to run many types of tests to diagnose and treat the problem. We also perform many types of procedures, such as surgery and dental cleaning, under anesthesia.Learn About Veterinary Services
Thorough physical exams should be performed at least yearly, sometimes every six months. Head to toe to tail. Besides preventing illness, these exams give us a chance to get to know our patients. This is recognized as the gold standard of care, and is essential to fulfill a valid doctor/patient relationship.Learn About Pet Wellness
