Local Medical Issues
We ask our clients to bring in a fecal sample to each wellness exam. Testing twice per year provides us with the best chance of detecting any parasites. We test for heartworm yearly. Heartworm is transmitted by mosquitoes and with the winter temperatures the way they are, it is not cold enough to kill mosquito eggs. Heartworm is a year-round risk. We recommend year-round preventative medication. We also focus on flea and tick control since many health issues are caused by these parasites.
The American Animal Hospital Association (AAHA) sets the standard for quality veterinary care for companion animals. As an accredited hospital, we voluntarily uphold the Association's high standards in 18 different areas and are routinely evaluated on over 900 different standards of veterinary care. Not all animal hospitals are accredited, and we are proud to be amongst only 12-15% of veterinary hospitals that hold this honor.
We harness the scale and strength of our global network while acknowledging each individual's contribution. We work locally to improve the lives of all who interact with our brand.
