Specialized Care

Our experienced veterinary team provides comprehensive medical care, ranging from routine to advanced procedures and treatments.

Although we handle the majority of your pet’s medical and surgical needs in-house, we occasionally refer patients to veterinary specialists or specialty clinics when advanced training or equipment will be beneficial.

Below you will find a list of treatments that we currently offer in-house, some of which we will refer out for a specialist's care. Please call us with any questions for more details on any of these services.

Behavioral Counseling

Do you need advice regarding the redirection of unwanted behaviors such as excessive barking, chewing, spraying, scratching, digging, house soiling, or aggression? We are now partnered with Jeff Joyce of “A Sound Beginning of Southwest Florida” to offer dog training classes! Behavioral problems can be challenging and frustrating for both pets and pet owners. It is our goal to work with you towards a solution. 

Internal Medicine

Internal medicine veterinarians are qualified to perform advanced diagnostic services and create treatment plans for illnesses related to the internal body systems of animals. Our team will help diagnose and treat conditions of the GI system, kidneys, liver, heart, nervous system, endocrine glands, bladder, and respiratory systems. We also treat cancers, blood disorders, immune deficiencies, and infectious diseases. 

Orthopedics

When it comes to orthopedic care, prevention, detection, and treatment of injuries or disorders of the skeletal system and associated muscles, joints, and ligaments are an important and vital part of keeping your pet up, running, and healthy. In addition to a thorough physical exam, we use laboratory tests and radiological findings to determine the cause of your pet’s pain and/or the extent of their injury or illness.

Ophthalmology

If you are concerned about your pet’s eyes or vision, we can help. Our veterinarians diagnose and treat a variety of ophthalmological issues, including but not limited to, dry eyes, cataracts, corneal infection or trauma, and glaucoma. It is important to report any changes in your pet’s eyes or vision during your routine veterinary visits. 

Cardiology

Whether a pet has a congenital heart condition or a cardiology issue that has developed over time, diagnosing a heart condition early can allow your pet to lead a long, healthy life and avoid heart failure. Call us if your pet starts breathing rapidly or coughing, loses his or her appetite, tires easily, seems weak, or has trouble exercising.

Oncology

A cancer diagnosis for your pet can be scary. Our veterinarians want you to know there are more treatment options available now than in the past. We have years of advanced study and experience in treating pet cancers and almost every pet can be helped to some degree. For some pets, that may mean a cure; for others, we focus on palliative treatments that provide an improved quality of life. 

Endocrinology

The endocrine glands include the pituitary, thyroid, parathyroid, pancreas, adrenals, ovaries, and testes. Each of these glands secretes a type of hormone into the bloodstream that regulates various body systems. These serious, potentially life-threatening conditions are much more manageable when caught early, allowing us to begin proper treatment.

Pain Management

Our doctors work with you to determine the cause of pain and teach you how to recognize pain in your pet. Acute or chronic pain affects your pet’s ability to physically function and can also have a detrimental effect on their well-being and state-of-mind. Pain management is one of our primary considerations when treating a pet for any medical condition.

Laser Therapy

Laser therapy is often used in conjunction with physical therapy or rehab and is a non-invasive, pain-free treatment that helps to reduce inflammation, decrease pain, and aid in healing. Laser therapy is good for post-surgical patients, chronic arthritis, skin conditions, muscle strains and sprains, joint or disc disease, wounds, bites and burns.

OFA Certification

Hip and elbow dysplasia is a common condition that affects dogs and can cause debilitating and painful conditions for your pet. OFA Hip & Elbow evaluation/certification helps pet owners and breeders to evaluate the hip joint before breeding. We strongly recommend OFA Hip & Elbow certification before breeding a female, before the purchase of a puppy, and/or to evaluate your pet's hip condition.

Hospice & Euthanasia

Deciding when your pet may need hospice care or euthanasia is a very personal and private decision, but that doesn’t mean you have to make this difficult choice on your own. Our hospice and humane euthanasia services are conducted with respect, compassion, and care. If you are worried you have a sick, elderly, or terminally ill pet that is suffering, call us to learn how we can help.

Exotic Pet Care

Exotic pets include small mammals, reptiles, birds, fish, amphibians and invertebrates. We recommend that all newly acquired exotic pets be kept separate from your other pets for one month after purchase. They should also receive an initial health evaluation by your veterinarian prior to introduction to your other pets. We offer a wide array of wellness services for exotic pets.

Pocket Pets

Pocket pets refer to smaller household pets such as guinea pigs, rabbits, hamsters, mice, rats, gerbils, and hedgehogs. Each pet is different and requires different care. We will guide you in your pet’s care, provide helpful tips for keeping your pet safe and we offer treatments (such as vaccination, parasite screening, and spay/neuter) to keep your pet healthy. 

House Calls

There are many challenges in caring for an animal that cannot be moved from their location for one reason or another. Before your house call visit, please let us know of any specific requests or conditions that will require special attention. We promise to communicate with you throughout the process to make sure it goes smoothly for you and your animal.
