Besides employing the latest methods and techniques in modern veterinary medicine, we also offer certified licensed acupuncture for patients who might be candidates for alternative care. Our goal is always the same. Diligently ascertain the issues. Then recommend the healthiest pathway for every single pet. 

Also important to know? Doctors and staff are trained and certified in Fear Free techniques. This essentially means they specialize in making a trip to the vet, as stress-free as possible. (For everyone. Yep. Especially the animals.)
