Wellness Care & Vaccination Programs

wellness programs

We provide a complete wellness program for your pet to keep them healthy. This starts with a fullexamination by the doctor and a consultation with you about what your pets specific needs and risks are with regards to existing conditions, exposures, environment, and your concerns.

We will then recommend appropriate diagnostic tests, immunizations, diets, etc. to keep your pet in optimal health. Since your pets are instinctually programmed to hide pain or medical conditions and cannot tell us when something is wrong, we need to be proactive in running appropriate diagnostics to detect disease early when it can be more effectively treated. This will also allow us to gather information about what is normal for your pet so that we can watch for trends in the tests over time. Based upon our findings, we can make specific recommendations for diet, exercise, treatment, behavior modification or further testing. We offer all of this to help you ensure that your pet receives the best care available.

Medical Services

Our internal medicine service allows for diagnosis of most medical conditions affecting pets. We begin with a comprehensive examination. The examination findings are then used to determine a diagnostic plan that usually can be done in our hospital within one to two days. Our hospital possesses up-to-date diagnostic equipment including an complete laboratory, radiology (x-rays), endoscopy, etc.

After an accurate diagnosis is made, our complete pharmacy allows us to begin treatment immediately, whether treatment consists of outpatient care or intensive care in the hospital.


Surgical Services

ironton surgery

Our sterile surgery suite is fully equipped with all the high tech tools needed to provide the safest surgical care. We have patient warming devices, numerous patient monitors, isoflurane gas anesthetic and certified technicians to monitor patients at all times.

Our ICU allows patients to recover from surgery as comfortably and safely as possible. They are monitored and kept warm and cozy with appropriate pain relief until they are fully recovered. They are then sent home when appropriate with more pain medication. Pain relief is a huge part of proper healing.


Boarding & Grooming

boarding and grooming

As an extra service to our clients, we will board your pet when you are away or do minor grooming. Our boarding facility provides indoor/outdoor runs, a separate feline area, clean and safe cages, bedding, Science Diet food and hand walking for dogs at least twice per day.

Our grooming services consist of nail trims, shearing, trims, and bathing. Whether your pet is here for grooming or boarding, our trained staff will monitor their health and well-being and the doctor will appropriately treat problems that might arise. How could your pet be safer when you’re away than to stay in a clean, dry, monitored boarding facility with medical staff that are trained to detect and treat anything that might crop up? We can also medicate your pet while boarding if needed.


Pet ID Cards, Microchips, and Pet Supplies

Pet ID Cards: Recive a complimentry Pet ID Card with your annual vaccination visit! While your here don't forget to make a Pet ID Tag with our new tag engraver.


Microchipping has become a very popular and safe way to permanently identify your pet and you as the owner in the unfortunate case that your pet is lost. Microchipping involves placement of a small electronic chip the size and shape of a piece of rice just under the skin in the neck area. A needle is used to inject the chip. The injection is comparable to a regular vaccine injection.


If your pet becomes lost and is transported to a humane society, the humane society will be able to scan your pet for the chip and contact you. The scanner is similar to a scanner found in the grocery store. We advise you to use this system of identification as well as a collar identification system on your pet.
