General Medicine

As general practitioners, we examine and evaluate your pet in order to diagnose and treat a variety of health problems. These may include heart or internal organ disease, endocrine disorders such as diabetes or thyroid disease, dental disease, skin disorders and allergy, trauma or injury, cancer and more. Our doctors and staff are committed to providing the best possible veterinary care to your pet with compassion and empathy, as well as giving you the information and tools necessary for making decisions about your pet's healthcare.

General pet medicine encompasses: 

  • A complete and thorough physical exam which is the cornerstone of your pet's evaluation.
  • A discussion of clinical signs, behavior changes and any other concerns
  • Diagnostic imaging that may include xrays or ultrasound, labwork that may include blood tests, urinalysis or fecal analysis
  • Discussions surrounding a diagnosis or need for further care
  • Treatment of your pet, whether admitted to the hospital or as out-patient care

If you witness your pet exhibiting any of the following, please schedule an appointment to have them evaluated:

  • Loss of appetite
  • Lethargy, or sudden decrease in activity
  • Vomiting or diarrhea
  • Increased thirst or urination
  • Limping, difficulty standing up, climbing stairs, or walking long distances. 
  • Excessive itching. 
  • Excessive weight loss or weight gain. 
  • Odor or discharge from ears. 
  • Foul smelling breath or trouble chewing
  • Discharge from eyes or nose 
  • Excessive sneezing
  • Sudden change in respiratory rate or effort
  • Lumps in the skin that are new or have increased in size

In some instances, sick pets may need to be admitted to the hospital for more intensive care. Our facility can provide a comfortable setting for pets receiving ongoing care that requires hospitalization. However, our hospital is not a 24 hour facility, and we have no overnight staff. If critical care monitoring overnight is indicated, if diagnostics or treatment lie outside our ability or requires a veterinary specialist, we may refer you to one of our partnered referral veterinarians. We work closely with specialty practices that can further assist you in achieving optimal veterinary care.
