Royal Canin now provides Genetic Health Analysis Testing!
Your dog's DNA can tell you a lot. Now, Royal Canin can determine the breeds that make up your dog, comparing your dog’s DNA to the unique genetic signatures of more than 250 breeds, types, and varieties of dogs. This blood test takes 7-10 days to arrive at our clinic following your request for submission. DNA results will be received within 2-3 weeks. Schedule a visit for a blood test today and discover the secrets of your pet's DNA!
We offer laser treatments using a Class IV Companion Therapy Laser!
Therapy lasers have been proven to alleviate pain and accelerate wound healing. This non-invasive, stress-free treatment can be instrumental in minimizing post-operative pain. The laser also helps reduce inflammation in both acute and chronic conditions. If your pet suffers from arthritis, tendonitis, acute injury, degenerative joint disease, lick granulomas, or any other inflammatory condition, then we highly recommend giving laser therapy a chance to change the quality of your pet's life. Add a laser treatment following surgery, or call us to schedule a multi-treatment package for your pet today!
We are proud to announce that the Animal Health Center participates in a feral cat program!
Spays and neuters will be offered Monday - Friday for feral cats for ONLY $10! A rabies vaccine will also be administered at that time. The left ear will be humanely tipped so that the cat will not be trapped for sterilization in the future.
To take advantage of this program, the cat must be feral and must arrive to our clinic in a trap. We have the ability to loan out a trap with a returnable $50 deposit. Call us with any questions you may have or to schedule an appointment!
Refer a friend and get a $20 credit!
Just have them mention your name at their first appointment.
