Meet Your Veterinarian
A member of our staff will go over your pet's history and problems with you. You are welcome to ask any questions, and we will devote time to answering them.
Examination, Diagnosis & Treatment
We will give you a diagnosis and treatment options after we have assessed your pet. Your veterinarian and you will collaborate to come up with a treatment plan for your pet.
We'll write a report of our diagnosis, our conversation with you, and your pet's treatment plan. We'll keep this information on hand in case you need it in the future.

We are proud to offer CareCredit as a financing option. They offer an easy application process that will give you results in minutes.
- Will I be provided with an estimate of costs?
Before treating your pet, we will provide a reasonable estimate of the cost of our services. Unforeseen circumstances may have an impact on your final bill.
Before any further treatment, we will always discuss our written estimate with all clients. We will need a deposit based on our estimate.
- Should I call ahead to book an appointment?

If you need to cancel or reschedule an appointment, please let us know as soon as possible. This way, we can offer the space in our schedule to other clients.

We take care of all small domestic pets such as cats and dogs. We also see exotic mammals such as rabbits, hamsters, and ferrets.
- Where can I purchase my pet's prescription and food?
You can purchase all the medications and specialty food your pet needs either via our online store or our in-house pharmacy.

All emergency examinations need a deposit payment. After the doctors have examined your pet, you're given a treatment estimate to help you decide on a plan.
If your pet requires extra hospitalization, diagnostics, or surgery, a deposit is required up front. The balance is due when we discharge your pet.
