Our team of veterinarians is committed to providing the most comprehensive services for your pets and can perform many different types of surgery, including many very specialized surgeries. Our surgery suites are equiped with state-of-the-art continuous monitoring including EKG, pulse oximetry, blood pressure, temperature and circulating water beds to provide the highest standard of care available. We house an Intensive Care Unit with constant O2, CO2, temperature and humidity control for complete environmental monitoring for critical care. We provide blood transfusion and have a complete in-house laboratory for fast, accurate results when you need it most.
