Here at Companion Animal Hospital, we are a full- service hospital and offer a number of services for your pet.
We do not currently provide services to exotic pets or pocket pets (ex. reptiles, rabbits, birds).
Our experienced vets perform a complete physical examination of your pet. We listen to your pet's heart and lungs, evaluate his or her vision, check for unusual lumps, look at your pet's teeth and oral cavity, and check your pet's joints for swelling or stiffness. During the exam, we also discuss home health care options for your pet and answer any questions that you may have.
Vaccinations are very important in preventing your pet from many life threatening diseases. We use the highest quality vaccinations to help keep your pet healthy.
Annual Wellness Bloodwork
Annual bloodwork gives us a way of looking checking your pet for things that can not be seen visually. Together, the physical exam and the wellness bloodwork work to provide a more complete view of your pet's overall health.
We carry several preventative products to keep your pet healthy. A few examples of prevention that we carry are: Trifexis, Sentinel, Heartgard, Nexgard, Bravecto, and Simparica.
Blood Parasite Check
In dogs, we recommend annual testing for blood parasites. The parasites include heartworms and ticks, with diseases such as Lyme disease. These tests make sure your pet is not suffering from a serious disease and makes sure your pet can continue to safely take his/her heartworm prevention medication.
Intestinal Parasite Check
We recommend annual examination of your pet’s feces under a microscope for clues about many different parasites. These parasites include, but are not limited to, roundworms, hookworms, whipworms, tapeworms and giardia.
Blood Chemistry Panels
Blood chemistry panels help our veterinarian determine how your pet’s organs, such as kidneys, pancreas and liver, are currently functioning. These tests can also help your veterinarian accurately diagnose and treat illness, as well as monitor your pet’s response to treatment. We also utilize these tests to determine whether further testing is needed.
Laboratory testing of your pet’s urine will help our veterinarians detect the presence of specific substances that normally do not appear in urine, including protein, sugar, white blood cells or blood. Measuring the dilution or concentration of urine can also help your veterinarian diagnose illness. Urinalysis can be helpful in diagnosing urinary-tract infections, diabetes, dehydration, kidney problems and other conditions (such as bladder stones).
Soft Tissue Surgery
We offer a variety of soft tissue surgical procedures including spays, neuters, declaws, growth removals, and a multitude of other abdominal surgeries (bladder surgery, intestinal surgery, etc.).
We perform a variety of orthopedic procedures depending upon the surgical needs of your pet. We perform knee surgery, hip surgery, and fracture repair. In addition to surgical repair of fractures, we utilize splints, casting, and other methods to assist in healing of broken bones.
Companion animal hospital utilizes advanced technology in the field of imaging. Our practice uses digital radiography (x-rays) that provides the highest quality images to help us evaluate your pet’s condition.
Our vets utilize the latest in non-invasive ultrasound technology that allows the veterinarian to look within your dog or cat's body to diagnose many conditions. At times this may help us avoid the need for surgery or other invasive diagnostics. For more advanced ultrasound we also utilize mobile ultrasound that allows more intricate diagnostics and additional availability for input from Board Certified Radiologists and Cardiologists.
Oral Care & Dental Cleaning
Oral care and prophylactic dental cleaning is an integral part of maintaining a healthy pet. Dental disease is the most common disease that affects pets and is often not addressed early enough. Dental disease can affect other organ systems including the kidneys and heart. A thorough physical exam is key to diagnosing dental disease. Prophylactic care and cleaning can save your pet from potentially painful dental disease. We offer 20% off Dental cleanings the months of February and September.
Dental Care Products
We offer a variety of products designed to help decrease the risk of dental disease, such as treats, Science Diet t/d food, water additives, toothpaste, and more.

Microchip Implantation & Registration
Each year, millions of pets go missing and many don't make it back home. Microchipping is a simple, effective way to prevent this tragedy. About the size and shape of a grain of rice, identification microchips are encoded with your pet's vital information and implanted beneath the skin between the shoulder blades. Veterinary hospitals and animal shelters across the country are equipped with scanners capable of reading these microchips. Our services include the implantation of the microchip and the initial registration.
We sell a number of prescription diets including Hill's and Royal Canin, depending on your pet's specific dietary needs.
We can help develop a nutritional plan that will help benefit your pet, whether he or she is obese and needs to lose weight or just requires a specialty diet for medical reasons.
