Laser Therapy
Our Laser unit is the most advanced small animal laser on the market and is FDA approved. Laser Therapy is used to increase the body’s natural healing processes. It also increases blood flow and lymphatic return decreasing inflammation and edema. It also has an immediate effect on pain by interfering with pain impulses being sent to the brain. It also stimulates the release of endorphins, our body’s natural pain relievers.
24-Hour Emergency Care

If we feel your pet needs 24-hour care and monitoring, we will recommend that you go to the 24-hour emergency hospital nearest to you. We will provide records, x-rays, medications, when needed, and will call the emergency hospital with any additional information they might need from your pet’s initial exam.

Digital Radiography
Digital radiology provides exceptional detail and clarity that helps in diagnosis. We are able to make copies of the images on CD to take with you when necessary.
Laser Surgery
We utilize the laser surgery unit in growth removals, dewclaw removals, feline declaws, and in canine castrations of patients under 20 pounds. This technique provides less pain, less bleeding, less chance of infection and shorter hospital stays.
We emphasize prophylactic dentistry in order to prevent the start, as well as the progression of periodontal disease. Brushing the teeth and feeding veterinary dental diets are the two best ways in prevention of plaque build up. Dental exams are recommended, and are included, in our yearly wellness exams. Some breeds such as Poodles, Schnauzers, Dachshunds, Yorkshire Terriers and Greyhounds are predisposed to dental disease and will thus need more frequent cleanings and treatments. Dental procedures, such as cleaning or extractions, require general anesthesia to be preformed in a safe and efficient manner for your pet.
General anesthesia in pets is much safer today than it once was due to the advances made in pharmaceuticals and patient monitoring. At our facility, when a patient is under anesthesia, we utilize a blood pressure monitoring device, heart rate monitor, and sPO2 monitor (which measures the amount of oxygen in the body). Our doctors believe in pain management for all pets undergoing any surgical procedures, which keeps the patient more comfortable and enables us to use lower levels of general anesthesia. Our anesthetic protocols are developed by the doctor for each individual patient based on its needs and health status at the time of the procedure.
Blood work is a commonly used diagnostic tool. We recommend blood work prior to any anesthetic procedure and every 6 to 12 months for our senior pets. We will often use blood work to diagnose viruses, endocrine deficiencies, organ disease, monitor drug levels, and check your pet’s overall internal health.
We believe annual vaccines are necessary for the majority of our pets, largely due to the amount of wildlife and free-roaming pets in our rural area. We also adhere to Washington State requirements for rabies vaccines. The species, age and previous vaccine status will determine each patient’s vaccine schedule.
Fecal Testing
We recommend annual fecal testing for parasites in dogs and cats for their own health, as well as the potential risk of transmission to humans in some cases.
Behavioral Counseling
Many of our animal companions have behavior issues that need to be addressed for their own safety and well being, as well as for the people around them. Our doctors and staff have a wealth of experience in this area and are happy to assist with a behavioral consult to try and help you through any problems you and your pet might be having.
Dietary Recommendations
We carry Royal Canin and Purina brand canine and feline veterinary prescription foods. In some cases, your pet may need to be placed on a special diet to assist in improving their overall health. Our doctors are well versed in nutrition and will help you understand and find the best options for your pet.
We offer AVID microchipping as a means of permanent identification. Should your pet become lost, the chances of being reunited with your pet are much higher if they are microchipped. Please remember to take the final step in registering your microchipped pet through AVID.
