Your pet’s teeth and gums should be examined at least once per year to detect early signs of periodontal disease or tooth decay.

If your pet is demonstrating symptoms such as vomiting, diarrhea, weight loss, abdominal pain or swelling or loss of appetite we may recommend an endoscopy. The purpose of an endoscopy procedure is to explore the esophagus, stomach, small intestine and colon in order to diagnose gastrointestinal disease. If an abnormality is detected during the procedure, a biopsy sample may be collected for further analysis. If your pet is demonstrating these symptoms, call us to discuss your options.
Radiology and Ultrasound
We offer medical imaging to aid in the diagnosis of many different conditions. Radiographs and ultrasound are both painless and noninvasive ways to evaluate organs and bones allowing us to better understand what is occurring in a pet’s body.
