Yearly Wellness Exams
It is recommended that all pets receive a yearly wellness exam by a Veterinarian. Wellness exams allow our veterinarians to detect problems and diseases that might go undiagnosed otherwise, including heart murmurs, tumors, enlarged organs, cataracts, ear infections, ear mites, dental disease, skin issues, allergies and more.
Dental health is a very important part of your pet’s overall health, and dental problems can cause, or be caused by, other health problems. Our dental cleanings include pulling of infected teeth, removal of tarter, and polishing of all the teeth. An oral/health exam is required up to 6 months before dental procedure.
To protect your pet from contagious diseases, keep his/her essential vaccinations up-to-date. This is important even if your pet is kept mostly indoors. Boarding kennels, dog parks, veterinary clinics and grooming salons are all areas where your pet is likely to be exposed to contagious diseases. Keep in mind that vaccinations take a few days to a few weeks to become effective.
Laser therapy is the application of a coherent light. This type of therapy is a holistic, non-invasive, effective way to treat and manage many chronic conditions, like arthritis. The laser stimulates tissue regeneration. It also reduces inflammation in areas so that healing can begin.
We preform general surgeries such as spays, neuters, growth removals, biopsies, medical shave downs, and much more! Each patient is required to have a health exam before their surgery.

Dr. Jessie Hennessy provides a great alternative care method. Being certified in both animal chiropractic and acupuncture, she is able to blend eastern and western medicine, giving patients the best care possible. Animal Chiropractic focuses on the preservation of health by restoring normal movement, improving joint mechanics and soft tissue function. When an adjustment is preformed, this normalizes the neurologic system which facilities optimal healing.
