- Ingestion of medications, poisons or objects

Through every step of your pet’s emergency care experience, we keep you and your pet’s primary veterinarian informed and involved.
Our veterinary cardiology team diagnoses and treats diseases of the heart and lungs. We use advanced imaging tools and techniques to identify your pet’s specific condition and develop a treatment plan. Cardiology patients have a variety of treatment options, including minimally invasive procedures.
Your pet’s primary veterinarian may refer you to our cardiology service for:
- Newly diagnosed heart murmur or recent increase in murmur grade (1-6)

Dentistry & Oral Surgery
From loose teeth to root canals, our veterinary dentists have the expertise and training to help pets who need advanced dental care.
Your pet may need to see an animal dentist if they are experiencing:
- Broken teeth
- Fractured jaw
- Gum disease
- Bite misalignment
- Mouth tumors
- Mouth pain
- Inflammation in mouth
- Tooth resorption (loss of tooth structure from within)
If your pet is suffering from a skin condition or experiencing allergy symptoms, our dermatology team is here to help. Our pet dermatologists have the training to diagnose, manage and treat common and complex skin conditions in pets. We work closely with your pet’s primary veterinarian to create comprehensive care plans for the long-term management of skin complications.
Common conditions we diagnose and treat include:
- Allergies (both environmental and food-related)
- Acute and chronic disease of the skin and ears
- Autoimmune diseases
- Parasitic skin diseases (like mange)
- Fungal infections (like ringworm)
Our radiology service performs many non-invasive and minimally invasive diagnostic procedures. These services allow our clinicians unique, non-invasive opportunities for evaluating various diseases.
Veterinary internists are trained to take care of patients who can’t tell them what’s wrong. By using the pet’s history, clinical signs, lab results, imaging studies and other testing, our internal medicine veterinarians can diagnose severe, chronic illnesses or symptoms that appear suddenly.
Our compassionate oncology team offers a variety of treatment options for pets with cancer. From initial diagnosis to ongoing care, we are focused on promoting your pet’s quality of life.
We take an integrative approach to treating cancer that includes:
- Taking time to listen to and answer all questions and concerns about cancer treatment
- Creating a treatment plan tailored to each patient and client’s individual needs
- Working within client’s schedules for therapy delivery
- Maintaining regular updates with referring family veterinarians
By helping every pet owner understand their pet’s disease and by providing appropriate educational tools, we all work together to improve and extend each pet’s quality of life.
When your pet needs surgery, our veterinary surgery team is ready to provide the best possible care. Our hospital is equipped with advanced tools, technology and monitoring capabilities to provide sophisticated medical care and compassionate service during your pet’s time of need.
Surgery may be the best option for pets with:
- Chronic diseases like ear or respiratory tract infections
- Congenital conditions like dysplasia or heart defects
- Trauma or injuries, including fractures, ligament and tendon injuries

Veterinary blood donor programs collect and store blood to better support pets in need. It’s our goal to provide access to life-saving blood products for pets, and your pet may be able to help. Contact us to learn more about requirements and whether your pet is eligible to help save lives.
Our team respects the close bond between pets and their owners and treats each with dignity, compassion and kindness.
