Important *NEW* COVID-19 Information
December 2021 OMICRON UPDATE

COVID-19 Protocol Update
  • All clients are welcome in the reception area with no restriction on capacity. We ask that clients wait in their vehicle, if possible, while their pet is being examined.
  • Masks are mandatory inside the clinic.
  • In light of the very rapid growth of COVID-19 cases in the area, we are resuming “curbside” examinations for the time being. For the time being, owners will not be permitted into the exam room with their pets. Instead, we will get a brief history from you upon arrival, and discuss all findings, concerns and recommendations via cellphone after the evaluation.

Thank you for your support and understanding over the last 2 years of COVID!

Digital Radiography

Our digital radiographs allow us to effectively scan the region of concern quickly. For more complex cases, we can use telemedicine to consult with specialists.


We offer full dental services including ultrasonic cleaning, digital radiographs and extractions if needed. Procedures are carefully done under general anesthesia.
