Services Small Animal Medicine:
Puppy and Kitten Vaccines are a series of 4 rounds given at 6, 9, 12, and 16 weeks old, so that an immunity can be built up in the immune system. Adult vaccines and labwork for dogs and cats should be done annually.

Laser Treatment:
We are proud to offer the latest in laser therapy. The cold laser therapy is a
noninvasive procedure that uses light to stimulate cells and increase blood
circulation. At the correct laser wavelength, pain signals are reduced and nerve
sensitivity decreases. The procedure also releases endorphins, or natural
painkillers, but it is not recommended for animals that have cancer because the
device can stimulate blood flow to cancer cells. Laser therapy helps manage
pain, reduce inflammation, increase mobility, and help speed recovery.
Commonly treated conditions are arthritis, sprains and stains, post-surgical
recovery, wound recovery, tendon and ligament injuries, and acute and
chronic pain.
