Pet Dental Care

Dental care is essential to the overall well-being of your pet. Comprehensive exams of the entire oral cavity are part of each pet’s examination. If problems are detected, we can discuss the best solution to the problem.

Pet Microchip

We offer microchip implants. This is the only permanent identification available for pets. Implantation involves injecting the chip with your pet’s unique identification number between the shoulder blades.

Pet Surgery

Surgery carries considerable risk. In order to guarantee the greatest results, all operation is carried out in our cutting-edge surgical suite. Regardless of the difficulty of each process, we employ the most recent and well-liked methods.
