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!
It’s the time of year for Thanksgiving. The best way to show thanks to your pet is with a yearly checkup.Call us and schedule the appointment today! All pets come with special care instructions. Feed daily, love forever and yearly checkups. We know you have the first two covered, but what about the last one? Yearly checkups are equally as important! They are essential to your furry friend’s happiness and well-being. They are the best way to keep your pet healthier, longer! During our veterinarian’s physical exam, your pet gets checked from tongue to teeth to toes to tail. (Plus all the parts in between!) Our in-depth, medical checkup not only assesses your pet’s current health status, but also helps to prevent future problems, such as obesity, periodontal disease and diabetes. At this time, it also provides us with the opportunity to discuss all the ways to keep your pal in good shape and to answer your questions. We can cover any topic you want in the comfort of our exam room. Yes, all pets do come with special care instructions: Feed daily (but not from the Thanksgiving dinner table) Love forever (you do that the best!) Yearly checkups (we’re here to ensure your pet stays healthy!) We’re grateful for your trust in us to recommend what’s best for your pet. Call us to make an appointment for your pet’s yearly checkup. Your pet will be thankful too. Happy Thanksgiving from all of us!
