Community Practice Medical Care

We offer three main types of medical care to our patients.

Health maintenance
We provide annual or biannual examinations, parasite prevention, vaccinations and routine laboratory testing including fecal parasite exams, heartworm testing, tick-born disease testing, viral testing in cats and other blood work depending on the animal's age and health status.

Primary care
We are the primary caregivers for sick and injured dogs and cats on our service. We routinely screen animals, provide treatment and develop plans for future care. We refer seriously ill animals to the appropriate specialty service for advanced treatment, and coordinate their cases. We also collaborate with the dental service to identify animals that are in need of routine dental cleanings.

The medical conditions we most commonly treat include:

  • Lyme disease
  • Parasitic disease
  • Dental disease
  • Skin disease

Elective surgery

We provide elective, outpatient surgical services to patients including spay and neuter surgery, removing minor lumps and bumps, and suturing minor wounds.
