All of our staff is here to listen, offer up a hug or handshake, provide that shoulder to cry on, and help aid in making this very difficult decision. The decision to euthanize is painful and emotional, and you don't have to go make it alone.

Pain affects pets more than just physically; it can take an emotional toll as well, especially chronic pain. Since our furry friends cannot talk to us about their discomfort, they rely on us to recognize the signs and manage their symptoms. Our hospital is dedicated to providing safe and effective pain management to the patients we treat, based on their individualized needs. Our process begins with anticipating the pain that might be experienced as a result of certain procedures, and taking proactive steps to promote their comfort throughout the treatment and during recovery. From routine surgeries to complex medical issues and ongoing conditions, our goal is to ensure your pet's well-being and happiness.
Chiropractic care focuses on the health and preservation of the neuro-musculo-skeletal system. The goal of treatment is to identify abnormal function and mobility of vertebra and to restore normal biomechanics through the application of a controlled thrust on the affected segment. Chiropractic is one of the few modalities in veterinary medicine where results can be immediate, and are often seen within minutes of treatment. In general, improvements are defined as an improved gait and an apparent reduction in pain. In orthopedic conditions such as fractures or ligament tears, chiropractic care may not replace the need for surgery, but will be useful in correcting secondary problems caused by compensation for the injury. Animals used for athletic performance or other working purposes are ideal candidates for chiropractic treatment. By regularly assessing and maintaining maximum flexibility in these animals, injuries may be avoided.
Acupuncture may be defined as the insertion of needles into specific points on the body to produce a healing response. Each acupuncture point has specific actions when stimulated. This technique has been used in veterinary practice in China for thousands of years to treat many ailments. The Chinese also use acupuncture as preventative medicine. Acupuncture is used all around the world, either alone or in conjunction with Western medicine, to treat a wide variety of conditions in every species of animal. Clinical research has been conducted showing positive results in the treatment of both animals and humans, and the use of acupuncture is increasing.
