Royal Canin now provides Genetic Health Analysis Testing!

Royal Canin DNA Profile

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!
