The saying goes "an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure." The reason this saying so popular is that most health issues don't show obvious symptoms until they are in their later stages. This is why it is so important to have routine checkups with us. It allows us to thoroughly examine your pet's major biological systems and look for the subtle signs of illness. This allows for us to be much quicker to catch potential issues, when they are much simpler to treat. It is the easiest and smartest way to give your pet a healthy life by your side, and you will both be happier for it.
It can be an anxious ordeal for pet owners when their beloved companion needs surgery. Having this kind of team at your back makes it a little less so. Whether your pet needs something routine, such as a spay or neuter, or something more complex, we built this practice to be representative of the future of veterinary medicine that we'd like to live in. Our team is exceptionally talented and the technology used here is second-to-none. Trust us, your pet is in excellent hands.
We are passionate advocates of dentistry, we know how much it means to a pet's pain levels, happiness, and even their longevity. We have standards in dentistry that are uncommon in the region. For example, we have digital dental xrays, a cutting edge tool that allows for us to see beneath your pet's gumline and assess pockets of periodontal disease. This is important, as the vast majority of dogs and cats over the age of three show signs of periodontal disease, which is painful and can cause other serious health issues if allowed to persist. But not to worry, periodontal disease is no match for our team of professionals!
Laser Therapy is a cutting edge technology in veterinary medicine. The treatment uses focused photons and works on the cellular level of your dog or cat. Laser therapy stimulates the release of endorphins, improves blood flow, and reduces inflammation. This has substantial benefits in reducing pain and accelerating healing, meaning it is a great candidate for any of the following condutions:
- Muscle, ligament and tendon injuries
- Post-surgical and soft tissue trauma
- Back pain
- Hot Spots and open wounds
- Hip Dysplasia
Acupuncture has been used and refined for medical use for animals for thousands of years. While we still don't fully understand the biological mechanisms by which it works, the results are obvious. It improves circulation and decreases inflammation in many conditions. This can have powerful healing effects, and can substantially reduce pain. Acupuncture is especially useful for chronic conditions like arthritis.
Traditional Chinese Veterinary Medicine
Traditional Chinese Veterinary Medicine (or "TCVM" for short) has been effectively used for thousands of years. Its guiding principle is that disease can sometimes be understood as an imbalance in the body, and healing can come through identifying the underlying pattern of disharmony. It activates the body's natural healing mechanisms to accomplish this, typically through acupuncture, herbal medicine, food therapy, and medical massage. TCVM works best when it is a part of a comprehensive medical plan, including other more traditional components of western medicine.
