We Do House Calls

Most services for your pet that can be offered in a veterinary hospital can also be done in the convenience of your own home. This let’s you keep doing what you do while we do what we do. Just a heads up; we do not do anesthetic procedures in the home, but we can get everything ready for the procedure at your place (exams, pre-anesthetic bloodwork, etc).  Have questions about what we can and cannot do?  Give us a ring and we can figure out what’s right for Fluffy.

  • Physical examinations
  • Vaccinations
  • Blood work
  • Preventative care
  • Diagnostics
  • Treatments
  • Health Certificates


Making end of life decisions can be one of the hardest times for you and your loved one, but at-home euthanasia can be a great gift for your pet in their time of need. We do everything we can to make this difficult time a peaceful one for you and the entire family.

2016 Pet Insurance Shootout

  Pet insurance can save your pet’s life. Veterinary medicine has rapidly advanced in the past 10 years and we can now diagnose, treat, and cure more rapidly, accurately, and with less morbidity (pain, suffering, etc) than ever before. The problem with these advances – they’re expensive. Our clients have told us stories about how one trip to the emergency room cost them over $10,000. While those super expensive trips are few and far between, it is not unusual for an average emergency room visit to cost $3000. When pet owners aren’t prepared for that, it can mean that the family pet is euthanized and this reality is heartbreaking. This is why we recommend whole heartedly for all of our patients to have pet insurance. No one wants to make the decision between providing food or paying rent, and you pet’s life. The other problem is that choosing a pet insurance plan is completely overwhelming. Its really hard to know if what you are signing up for is actually good insurance. After listening to hundreds of confused clients, we decided to weed through the details and see if we would find major differences between the plans. And we did. Disclaimer: We are not insurance agents, brokers, or insurance experts. This is not insurance advice. We do not receive kickbacks from any of our recommendations. However, we are well positioned to write this because we are experts in veterinary medicine and know the financial fallout if a company excludes hereditary conditions or a knee surgery, for example, because those exclusions can cost you thousands of dollars.

Lets’ talk about at-home dental care. We spent the first couple months of this year performing dentals done to get your pet’s mouth clean and get them back to square one. However, once they then leave the hospital, the plaque and calculus starts to build up again. So, it is my goal is to then start at-home oral health care to prevent the accumulation of plaque and calculus to keep their gums healthier for longer and extend the time between their next dental.

Xylitol toxicity in dogs – a “natural” killer

Xylitol is a natural sugar substitute and it’s used in a lot of human products. The problem, though, is that this substance is extremely toxic to dogs. It became a big problem when we started finding it in substances like peanut butter because we use peanut butter all the time to give to dogs as a reward or to hide a pill. This is a great example of how a natural substance can be safe for humans, but is not always safe for our pets. So remember, just because it’s natural, doesn’t mean it’s safe.
