Annual Checkups

New puppies and kittens see us often in the first few weeks so that we can ensure their vaccinations are complete and they are starting life on the right foot. It is essential that we vaccinate young pets to protect them from potentially life-threatening parasites and diseases.

We recommend adult pets visit us once per year, assuming they are in generally good health. Yearly wellness checkups help us keep vaccinations up to date and assess any health or behavior-related issues that may arise.

Pets age very quickly, and it is important to stay on top of any age-related health issues so that they can be treated early on before they become more serious. Senior pets visit us twice a year, helping us to make sure they live their golden years in comfort and good health.



We work closely with each family to ensure a positive experience for both the new pet and the family that will take care of him or her for many long and happy years to come.


Just like people, senior pets start to slow down a little bit with age and can develop common age-related health problems like arthritis and impaired vision.

Spay & Neuter

We understand that spaying or neutering a pet is a personal decision, and we respect your right to do as you wish. We do, however, encourage our pet owners to consider this safe procedure for their pet.


Dogs and cats need vaccinations to help them stay healthy and avoid potentially life-threatening health problems. Learn more about about the common vaccinations we recommend.
