Our in-house x-ray equipment gives us the ability to quickly assess the status of any musculoskeletal, abdominal, thoracic or neurological problems that may be affecting your pets.

MICROCHIPPING

Microchipping has become a popular method of identification for your pet, it is an easy procedure and much more simple to track than a tattoo. At the clinic you can choose to have microchipping done when your pet is in for spay or neuter, but the microchip can be inserted at any time. The implantation procedure is no more painful than a vaccination and is usually done in the exam room. The microchip is implanted under the skin usually between the shoulder blades.

PEDIATRICS

Puppies, kittens and young pets require special care, and our team is trained to advise you on their special needs.
