What our clients say
So happy to be able to bring our kitty to a great local business. We had a great experience, they were very considerate and helpful with tips to get our scardy cat in, we had to cancel his appointment 2 times because we couldn't get him in the carrier but they were very understanding. They were also very thorough with explaining the after care & the procedure they did, we recommend them highly.- L.H., Facebook Review
Today I took my injured dog Balto in to get his paw looked at. It was a great experience! I had to bring my 2 little guys who are a big handful! The whole staff were so helpful with me! Balto was in great hands. Super affordable also I will defiantly be back.- A.J., Facebook Review
They have a wonderful orthopedic surgeon that has experience in all size dogs plus the staff is the best part!- S.L., Facebook Review
The best vets I've ever been to. I brought my dog in to see Dr. Meaghan and she knew immediately what was wrong with him (after many others didn't) and fixed him right up. Dr. Pete has done two TTA surgeries on him and knowing how nervous my boy is has allowed me to bring him home right after so he could heal and stay calm. I consider myself so lucky to live three short miles from the people who take such great care of the one I love the most!!! The staff are so helpful and always so nice!! I just cant say thank you enough to Dr.Meaghan and Dr.Pete for taking the best care of my best friend!!!- S.D., Facebook Review
Complex surgeries that others refer
Dr. Pete performs many surgeries that are typically done at specialty clinics onsite (vs contracted to an outside veterinarian).
The laser is a high frequency beam of light that comes out of an instrument that looks like a pen. There is less pain and quicker recovery.
Laser therapy helps to treat pets with arthritis, tendon or soft tissue injuries and to promote wound healing.
Complex Orthopedic and TTA Knee Surgery done onsite by Dr. Pete
Dr. Pete performs many orthopedic surgeries such as i.e. TTA, ACL, Luxating Patella, FHO, UAP, and OCD.
Dentistry & Complex Oral Surgery
Dr. Pete performs general dentistry and oral surgery procedures with the aid of digital radiography and our progressively schooled staff.
If your pets don’t travel well in the car or are getting too old to make the trip, we can help. One of our doctors can come to you. Travel charges apply.
Digital X-Ray and Digital Dental X-Ray
Digital radiography is a form of X-ray imaging, where digital X-ray sensors are used instead of traditional photographic film.
Platelet Rich Plasma
Plasma platelets are harvested from the pet’s blood, then re-injected. This helps the pet’s body to improve ability to heal itself.
