Pet Health Services:
Annual Wellness Exams for cats and dogs are very valuable in insuring the longevity of your pet.
During your pets annual exam, Dr. Buysse will check and examine all body systems, and explain what she finds. All necessary vaccinations and blood tests will be carried out at this time. Information and products on dental care and parasite control will be dispensed.
Vaccines: Our hospital provides a variety of vaccines for dogs, cats and ferrets. We encourage you to discuss with Dr Buysse the different vaccines, your pets lifestyle, travel plans and history to determine the best vaccine protocol for your pet.
Diagnostic services: Using our modern laboratory, we can diagnose many conditions that may be making your pet sick. Our lab is equipped to do blood, urine and stool tests while you wait. If further testing is needed, an outside laboratory can be used to help diagnose your pets condition.
We use x-
Ultrasound services are available for diagnosis of pregnancy and identifying disease conditions involving the internal organs. Ultrasound is also used to facilitate biposies and fluid collection when needed.

We assure that your pet wakes up in a warm and comforting environment. Pain medication is administered during surgery and offered as a take home medication after surgery.
Dentistry: Our dental services include teeth cleaning with an ultrasonic scaler and polishing, tooth extractions and minor oral surgery. Dental disease can lead to damage of the liver, kidneys, and heart valves. Routine dental care, the use of Oravet Chews and brushing is recommended for dogs and cats. Ask us to show you how.
Permanent identification (Microchipping): Our hospital is able to place a small microchip (about the size of a grain of rice) underneath the skin of your pet, between the shoulder blades, to allow for permanent identification. In the unfortunate case that your pet is lost or stolen, this allows for identification and recovery. The microchip can be detected by a scanner used by veterinary hospitals, rescue groups, humane societies and animal control departments. It is a simple procedure that can be performed during a routine appointment.
Pharmacy: We maintain a complete inventory of pharmaceuticals, vitamins, shampoos, flea and tick control products and heartworm preventatives to meet the needs of your pet. We also carry a full line of prescription and routine diets.
Nutritional Counseling: We believe that high quality food and treats are essential
to the health, longevity and vitality of our dogs and cats. With all the pet foods
available these days it can be hard to make a choice on what to feed your pets. Our
staff is trained to help you make an informed decision on what to feed your beloved
family member. We carry a wide range of prescription and non-
Weight Management and Weight Loss: Keeping your pet at a healthy weight is an important part of their overall health care plan and can add years to your pet's life. A pet that is overweight or underweight may be experiencing an illness and may be more susceptible to disease and injury. Obesity is a complicating factor in heart conditions, arthritis, and may predispose your pet to diabetes. Please give us a call today if you would like to talk about nutrition, diet or weight management with one of our staff or to make an appointment for your pet.
Behavior Counseling: Although behavior problems can be extremely frustrating for owners and lead to the deterioration of the bond between owners and their pet, it is important to remember that there are two key components to a behavioral program: prevention of behavioral problems in young animals; and treatment of existing behavior problems in animals of all ages.
Our goal is to keep pets a valuable member of their family by providing professional services and educating owners about animal behavior. Once an owner understands why their pet may exhibit a certain behavior, treatment plans (that may or may not include medication) can be started and the bond between pet and owner can be restored and strengthened. For specialized or extreme cases that may require advanced behavioral training, we can also help find a board certified veterinary behaviorist.
