General Medicine

The cornerstone of veterinary medicine is routine, complete and thorough physical exams. We will discuss your pet's recent history, clinical signs, behavior changes, and any other concerns you may have. Annual exams allow us to compare new findings to a baseline and keep track of pertinent information that may assist us in treatment. The physical exam will start with an evaluation of eyes, ears, nose, and mouth, and continue through all body systems head to tail. Depending on the exam findings, we may recommend further diagnostic which could include blood tests, urinalysis, fecal analysis, xrays and/or ultrasound. Based on the results of the testing performed, we will have discussions surrounding a diagnosis, or the need for further care and treatment of y our pet. Our goal is to partner with you in the care of your pet, and give the information necessary to make the best decisions for both you and your pet.
