Services

Our animal clinic offer a wide array of services as well as no-obligation consultations and estimates. We are ready and fully equipped to handle your pet's routine medical and surgical needs at our location.

Wellness Exams

Prevention is the key to the long term health of your pet. When you bring your pet for routine wellness checks, usually once or twice per year, we gather a complete and accurate picture of his overall health. During the physical exam, we auscultate the heart and lungs, check the teeth and oral cavity, assess his eyes and ears, palpate the lymph nodes, abdomen, joints, and muscles and examine his coat to determine the overall health condition of your pet.

 

This exam allows us to identify any medical concerns and address them before they have a chance to develop further. When we are able to detect disease in its earliest stages, we are better able to treat and manage problems effectively, thus improving the outcome for your pet. Simply put, early detection and treatment can add years to your pet’s life.

 

Spay & Neuter

The decision to spay or neuter a pet is an important one for pet owners, but it can be the single best decision you make for his long-term welfare.  We believe this is an essential part of keeping your pet healthier and more attentive to you, as well as preventing pet overpopulation problems. In addition, spayed or neutered pets are less likely to roam away. All spays and neuters are performed in our hospital by Dr. Lewis who has over 35 years of experience.

 

Vaccinations

Vaccinations are necessary to protect your pet from contagious diseases. It is important even if your pet is kept mostly indoors. Many contagious diseases are airborne and your pet could easily be exposed through an open window or screen door, or even through the crack under the door.

 

Boarding kennels, dog parks and grooming salons are all areas where your pet is likely to be exposed to other dogs and potential infections. Vaccines have had, and continue to have a major role in protecting animal health and public health.

We offer a wide variety of vaccinations to keep your pet healthy including:
Dogs

  • Canine Distemper

  • Canine Parvovirus

  • Canine Influenza

  • Bordetella (Kennel cough)

  • Rabies: 1 and 3 year vaccines are available

Cats:

  • Feline Distemper

  • Feline Leukemia

  • Feline Immunovirus

  • Rabies: 1 and 3 year vaccines are available

 

Surgery

Surgical procedures are safer than ever thanks to advances in anesthesia used in veterinary medicine. When your pet is admitted to our clinic several steps are taken before surgery. Our services include:

  • A variety of preanesthetics and anesthetics are available including a reversable which allows an animal to respond quicker after surgery making a more safe recovery.

  • Electronic monitoring during the procedure as well as individual asculation and monitoring during all procedures.

  • Fluid therapy as needed

  • Spaying and neuter of most domestic pets

  • Advanced surgical techniques for tumors, bladder stones and most other issues

  • Some orthopedic procedures

  • De clawing cats and removing extra dew claws and toes from puppies

 

Where applicable Dr. Lewis uses laser surgery for all surgical procedures, especially for de-clawing cats and most skin tumors. (Laser surgery helps to reduce post surgical pain and inflammation and enhance tissue healing)

 

Emergency Care

Any emergency is welcome during regular business hours 6 days a week. After hours the office phone is forwarded to Dr. Lewis who will help determine what is the best plan of action to ensure the best outcome for your pet.

 

 

Micro Chips

A microchip implant is an indentifying agent placed under the skin of a dog, cat, horse, bird or other pet. The chip, about the size of a large grain of rice, and uses radio frequency identification (RFID) technology. A needle is used to place the chip under the animal’s skin, usually between the shoulder blades. That chip has a unique number on it that can be picked up and read by a scanner which most veterinary offices have. Microchipping substantially increases the likelihood of a pet returning home by offering secure, reliable, unique and permanent identification.

 Dental Care

Clean teeth and healthy gums are essential to your pet's health. Infections are more common in the mouth because they can go undetected for long periods of time. There are a few steps that are involved in a Dental Prophylaxis or "teeth cleaning"

  • With the aid of an ultrasonic scaler we are able to use ultrasonic waves at a high frequency to remove stuck-on calculus and tartar

  • We scale both above and below the gumline. (Scaling below the gumline allows for us to remove hidden disease-causing bacteria)

  • Once that's complete we polish the teeth. It is very important that after scaling the teeth that they are polished, or else the tartar will come back more quickly

  • Rinsing the mouth allows for any left behind debris to be removed

  • The last step of the dental cleaning procedure is the dental charting and oral exam

  • X-rays are also available of the mouth to help aid in the dental preocedure

 

Some signs of dental problems include:

  • Bad breath – one of the first signs of dental disease

  • A yellowish-brown crust of plaque on the teeth near the gum line

  • Red and swollen gums

  • Pain or bleeding when your pet eats or when the mouth or gums are touched

  • Decreased appetite or difficulty eating

  • Loose or missing teeth

It is important to note that a proper dental prophylaxis cannot be performed without general anesthesia.



Health Certificates

Dr. Lewis is a USDA Accredited veterinarian certified for domestic and international travel and other specialized travel needs.

 

Nutritional Counseling

Many conditions are the result of  food allergies or other systemic diseases, such as kidney disease or urinary tract infections. We frequently prescribe prescription diets for these special needs. Appropriate nutrition plays an important role in a long, healthy, life for your pets. Pet nutrition consulting offers compassionate, qualified advice and complements regular veterinary treatment with supportive nutrition. Research shows that proper nutrition can increase the average life span of a dog up to two years.
