We are certified in Low Stress Handling and currently undergoing Fear Free Certification.  Our goal is to make every visit an enjoyable one for 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!

 Here are some great tips for less stress at the vet!


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!


Septermber 2017

September is when kids go back to school and finally, you have a chance to relax. Who wants to join you? Your pet! While you’re snuggling with your furry friend, you may feel a bump or rash on their skin. What should you do? Your pet may have bumps, lumps, missing fur, a black spot or a funny-looking toenail. Are these things something of concern? For most owners, it’s tough to know what skin issues are ok and what needs further evaluation. Missing fur may be from a lost battle with a housemate. A black spot may be a tick. A rash may indicate a food allergy. A little bump may be cancer. Skin is the largest organ of the body and there’s a lot to cover! That’s why a yearly checkup is vital to your pet’s health. When you bring your pet in for their wellness exam, we’ll assess every part of them, from nose to tail. We’ll make sure your pet is healthy and stays that way! Now that there’s a little peace and quiet at home, schedule your pet’s yearly exam. We’ll perform a thorough skin check and a few other easy tests if needed to keep your pet happy, healthy and a part of your family for a long, long time. Make an appointment today!
