Wellness & Preventative Care

Physical exams, blood work, X-rays, vaccinations, and more all play a pivotal role in wellness and disease prevention, which can save your companion from unpleasant illnesses and costly treatments.
Pet Dental Care
Your pet’s breath says a lot about their oral health. If you turn away every time they open their mouth, it might be time for a dental checkup! Our hospital offers dental prophylactic care, including treatment for gingivitis, dental disease, and other oral conditions. Good dental hygiene can also help to prevent systemic illness, like heart, liver, and kidney disease.
If your companion needs surgery, our sterile surgical suite can accommodate their needs. We provide routine spays and neuters, a wide range of other soft-tissue procedures, and some orthopedics. All of our surgeries are performed under strict protocols that are customized to every individual patient for maximum safety and comfort.
While their skin may be covered in fur, your pet still might benefit from skin care, especially if they have a skin disorder or allergy. Our doctors have the tools needed for diagnosing skin issues, and we have many treatment options available to alleviate these issues and make your pet comfortable again.
Our hospital is equipped for diagnosing, monitoring, and treating all kinds of chronic health conditions, from diabetes and kidney disease to various GI and endocrine disorders. Like us, our pets may be prone to disease or have a congenital issue requiring ongoing care, which our team is more than able to provide.
Dr. Shultz is a Certified Veterinary Acupuncturist (CVA), which means she is able to treat dogs and cats with acupuncture. This holistic therapy can be applied to treat a wide range of conditions, including arthritis, allergies, neurological disorders, nausea, post-surgical recovery, and much more.
