  • Advanced Dental Care

    Does your pet have bad breath? Your pet’s bad breath can be a sign of an unhealthy mouth. Bacteria causes bad breath, and over time, this can lead to plaque and tartar buildup on your pet’s teeth.

  • Digital Radiography

    Radiography is a valuable diagnostic tool in veterinary medicine. We at The Animal Clinic continually strive to offer our patients the highest quality medicine and diagnostic testing, and are pleased to offer our digital radiology services as a means of providing enhanced care.

  • In-House Diagnostics

    Just as with human medicine, in certain illnesses or surgical events it may be necessary to take a look at your pet’s blood work prior to the procedure. The Animal Clinic has the ability to run a complete blood count (CBC) to determine the amount of red blood cells, white blood cells and platelets present in your pet.
