Proper nutrition is extremely important for your pet’s health. We encourage our clients to observe their pet’s eating habits, weight fluctuations, and physical appearance as they may be an indicator for potential medical problems. Our veterinarians can adjust your pet’s diet based on his or her age, weight, activity level, and the presence of any special medical conditions. We offer the following pet diet brands in our office as well as for home delivery:
Noticing any potential behavioral issues or changes, especially as your pet matures, is important to discuss with your veterinarian so that they can form a training and/or treatment plan. Some of the more common behavioral problems observed include –
- Territorial behavior such as food or toy guarding
- Aggression towards people or other pets
- Inappropriate urination/defecation
- Difficulty in house training
After a thorough examination to determine that your pet is healthy, you may begin the process to breed your pet should you chose to. Our veterinarians are skilled in this area and can aid in the breeding process through artificial insemination, as well. We will also evaluate your pet and her pups to ensure that everyone remains healthy during the pregnancy.

All of our veterinarians are USDA certified and want to make sure that your travel is as smooth as possible. AT THIS TIME, OUR VETERINARIANS ARE NOT ISSUING HEALTH CERTIFICATES TO TRAVEL TO A FOREIGN COUNTRY.
