We are a full-service hospital. This means that we are equipped with all the necessary equipment and team support to perform a variety of services, some of which are listed below.
Wellness Exams and Vaccines
Your pet’s health is important to us, and that’s why we recommend seeing them at least once a year for a wellness exam. During these exams, we’ll do a full nose-to-tail exam and go over your pet’s weight, oral health, diet, and lifestyle. This is a great time to ask questions and put the proper care in place. We also recommend keeping your pet on a vaccination schedule, so that they’re always protected from common diseases.
We know it can be stressful when your pet is undergoing a procedure, but we’re here to relieve that stress. Before the procedure, we’ll be here to answer any questions you may have. We’ll also be there after the procedure to make sure you have the information you need to keep your pet feeling good as they recover at home.
We currently offer spays, neuters, and soft tissue surgery.
We’re able to process a wide array of diagnostic laboratory tests with our in-house laboratory. By testing blood, urine, and other samples, we’re able to provide accurate and timely lab results for the benefit of your pet.
We know that bringing a pet to the vet can be stressful. That’s why we’re happy to offer house calls to our clients so that we can provide care to your pet in the comfort of their favorite place – home. Please be sure to make arrangements with our team for these types of appointments.
As our pets age, we recommend that you bring them to see us at least twice a year. This allows us to watch for any changes in health that we can react to quicker. We’ll make sure your pet’s golden years are spent happy and healthy. This includes changes in diet, exercise routines, and pain management.
One of the most common orthopedic injuries in your dog is a cruciate ligament rupture. Today, there are great surgical interventions that bring great stability to the knee and thus better, long-term mobility to your pet. In the past, many general practitioners performed the surgery, but the surgery has evolved to offer more detailed, high tech surgical options for your pet, and is best left in the hands of a specialist. That’s why we have Dr. Dennis Ting owner of Princeton Veterinary Surgical Specialists as part of our medical Family. Dr. Ting is skilled in soft tissue surgeries that may be beyond the scope of a general practitioner. These surgeries are also performed on site, under the care of our Doctors and Dr. Ting.

When your pet needs emergency care, we’ll be there. Please be sure to call us when you’re on your way to the clinic so that we can prepare for your arrival.
We are happy to announce that we now offer a new bathing service for our patients! Properly bathing your pet will help keep their skin and coat as healthy as possible. Bathing is a good idea for several reasons:
- If your pet is trained to enjoy bathing, the experience will be pleasant for them, similar to going for a walk or playing chase in the yard.
- Any positive interaction between you and your pet strengthens the human-animal bond.
- Bathing removes dirt and odors from their skin and coat.
- Frequent bathing is necessary to heal inflamed or infected skin and damaged hair.
- Finally, while not often realized, bathing can have important health benefits for you and your family.
Please call the office for more information. You can download a bathing check-in sheet here.
Digital radiographs help us diagnose your pet so that we can treat them quickly. Digital x-rays are routinely used to diagnose and examine broken bones, obstructions, arthritis, masses, tumors, to confirm pregnancies, and detect ingested objects.
The digital files allow us to quickly determine what is ailing your pet and allow us to share them with our specialists if need be.
When your pet needs medication or food, we’ve got you covered. Our in-house pharmacy is stocked and ready so that you’re able to get what you need without the wait. We’re happy to be your one-stop shop for care!
Ultrasonography is a diagnostic imaging technique similar to radiography (X-rays) and is usually used in conjunction with radiography and other diagnostic measures. It allows visualization of the deep structures of the body.
Ultrasound can be used for a variety of purposes including examination of the animal’s heart, kidneys, liver, gallbladder, bladder, etc. It can also be used to determine pregnancy and to monitor an ongoing pregnancy. Ultrasound can detect fluid, cysts, tumors or abscesses.
Dr. Debra Ward is an internal medicine specialist and we utilize her mobile ultrasound for our practice. You can learn more about her here.
Did you know that a recent study showed that 74% of dogs lived longer with a team-oriented approach between your veterinarian and a boarded Cardiologist vs. just a family veterinarian? That’s why we have Dr. Ryan Keegan, a board certified Cardiologist and owner of Veterinary Cardiology Services as part of our medical family. For more Information click here.
