Why should I consider microchipping my pet?
Microchipping is a form of permanent identification that is with your pet at all times. It is the easiest way to make sure that if your pet ever gets lost, that they will be returned back home. For dogs, it also allows for lifetime licensing. Please visit the HomeAgain website or ask your veterinarian for more information.
Do you offer specialty pet food to help me manage my pet’s diet?
We sell a variety of prescription diets in our hospital, as well as online through our partnership with VetSource. When purchased online, these items can be shipped directly to your door. If you are purchasing at the hospital, please call in advance to ensure your food is available.
