Our Selection of Quality Veterinary Care Service


A brief overview of what we offer.


Examinations are the first line of defense in finding and diagnosing illnesses. Therefore, we will always examine your pet when we come to your home, temperament permitting.

A general wellness exam includes taking an overall look at mentation and mobility, looking at your pet’s eye, ears, teeth, and gums, listening to their heart and lungs, palpating peripheral lymph nodes, and palpating their abdomen to feel for masses and detect abdominal pain.

In addition, we can also perform neurological and orthopedic exams if your pet requires such.


Now open for surgeries! Surgeries are scheduled for existing clients only, and pets must have been examined prior to scheduling surgery.


Acupuncture is available as an integrative therapy for both small and large animals. Click here for more information.


For dogs and cats, we carry Rabies, DA2PP. Lepto, Bordetella, FVRCP, and FeLV. For large animals, we carry rabies, tetanus toxoid, and CDT. Additional vaccines can be available if requested ahead of time.


We use a combination of in-home snap tests, Antech Diagnostics Laboratory, and other labs to diagnose illnesses in your pet. We can do a variety of bloodwork, allergy testing, urinalysis, fecal exam, cytology, histopathology, and culture and sensitivity.

Now offering in-home ultrasound!

In-Home Euthanasia

We know this is the most difficult decision you will make. Our goal is to make the transition as smooth as possible for your family and your pet. We strive to make your loved one’s last moments stress-free and painless in the comfort of your own home.


We use Caring Pet Services and Animal Memorial Service for both private and communal cremations. We will transport your pet to the crematorium unless you make other arrangements.
