Has your pet had their wellness exam?

Keeping your pet healthy requires more than vaccines ("shots").  An exam by a veterinarian is the most important step in maintaining your pet's health.  If your pet has not been examined in the past 6-12 months, please contact us today to make an appointment.  We will check your pet from "nose to tail" and discuss our findings in everyday language.  Based on our exam and discussion we can recommend prevention, testing and treatment strategies that best suit you and your pet.  We look forward to working with you!
