A pet microchip is an intelligent device designed inside a glass enclosure. The enclosure works with your pet’s skin tissue in such a way that it’s radio frequency is read by universal scanners for the lifetime of your pet. Implanting a microchip is essentially the same as administering a vaccine. Your pet will not be able to feel the microchip once it is inserted.

A “dental,” also sometimes called a “prophy,” or prophylaxis is a cleaning and polishing of a dog’s or cat’s teeth. Dental cleaning should be performed on your pet when gingivitis (red area along the gum lines) is seen or bleeding during brushing is noted. Many pets get their teeth cleaned once a year.

Digital Radiography is one of the most commonly used diagnostic tools in veterinary practice. It provides a large amount of information to the veterinarian by noninvasive and economical means. It does not alter the disease process or cause unacceptable discomfort to the animal. Although radiography itself is painless, sedation is sometimes in order to reduce anxiety and stress associated with the procedure.
Vaccines are health products that trigger protective immune responses in pets and prepare them to fight future infections from disease-causing agents. Vaccines can lessen the severity of future diseases and certain vaccines can prevent infection altogether. Today, a variety of vaccines are available for use by veterinarians.
