HomeAgain MICROCHIPPING $49.95*

Microchip identification is a safe and very popular way to permanently identify your pet. Microchip identification of your pet involves placement of a small electronic chip, the size and shape of a grain of rice, just under the skin in the area between the shoulder blades. We can place the microchip during an exam or while they are under anesthesia without them feeling a thing.

To learn more about microchip identification, click here or call us and speak to a staff member.
*First year of coverage is included we take care of all the initial registration paperwork for you! Includes return transportation to get your pet home again (up to $500).

We can save you money on your puppy's first year of veterinary services. Besides getting vaccinated and dewormed, puppies need to be examined all through their first year of life to make sure that they are growing and developing properly. They need to be started on heartworm preventative and they are spayed or neutered during the first year. see details
The root cause of aggressive behavior in cats at the vet office is fear, and fearful cats are fractious cats, a danger to themselves as well as to our techs and doctors who examine and restrain them.

Previously, to handle these cats we had to completely sedate them. That’s why we are pleased to offer Gabapentin, a human drug that is also used to treat pain or to control seizures in pets. In cats, it is highly effective in reducing fear and anxiety!
Gabapentin comes as a small capsule that you give an hour befor your appointment. The sedative effect lasts for about 12 hours and the cat may be woozy or uncoordinated until the medication wears off. With Gabapentin, the cat is not fearful, aggressive, anxious or even happy. They just don’t care. Vet visits are pleasant again.
