The 5 year old facility has had extensive expansions every year since opening. The hospital has state of the art cloud software with online appointment capabilities and telemedicine capabilities, extensive in-house labs (Abaxis & Heska, including on site cortisol testing for ACTH stim and Dex suppression testing, progesterone, bile acids, Thyroid panels, clotting profiles), and well trained staff including RVTs. The small animal hospital features, new dental x-ray, new anesthesia monitors (including capnography) and dental station!

The practice is equipped with digital x-ray, 2 digital ultrasounds, video endoscopy, surgery laser, therapy laser, tonometry, advanced dentistry equipment, irap/prp, and capnography.

We pride ourselves on combining high quality medicine with concierge level service. Annual exams are a standard and help us build long lasting relationships with our clients. The practice has a great reputation for excellent medicine and we often see small animal referrals from neighboring clinics with large animal clients travel from a two-hour radius. Two ambulatory vehicles are available for farm calls.
Appointments for both the large and small animal patients are Monday – Friday. Emergency service is offered to our regular clients.
Support staff includes, a large animal coordinator and practice manager (with the practice 14 years) and three receptionists. Five excellent technicians are available to assist with small and large animal in-clinic cases. We are a growing practice and have established excellent training programs and hospital protocols for both the large animal and small animal staff. All staff members have required continuing education and we have an excellent staff retention rate.
