Advanced Veterinary Care

We provide a broad range of services for every stage of your pet's life.

Preventive Veterinary Care

Using the latest research and best practices, we help educate pet owners on how to treat the root cause of symptoms using safe and inexpensive methods. As an example, our heartworm preventive is also one of the best products for controlling intestinal parasites and fleas. We provide vaccinations, heartworm preventive, deworming, flea and tick products, and microchip implants.


My knowledge of and passion for dermatology means that I will work with you to get your dog or cats skin and ears as healthy as possible.


Dr. Thurber is passionate about eye medicine in animals and is an expert in veterinary ophthalmology. We use expert techniques to improve and/or save your pet’s vision.

Internal Medicine

Acute or chronic, we will diagnose and manage your pet’s medical condition. We refer to a specialist whenever appropriate.

End of Life Care

Having to say goodbye to your best friend is heart-breaking. We offer in-home visits that are as long as they need to be, with a consultation beforehand to structure the visit exactly how you would like it. We also provide cremation services.


Prevention is the key! Dental disease is painful and leads to organ damage. We will help keep your pets mouth healthy and pain free. We offer dentals with light sedation whenever appropriate, as well as more extensive dental work under anesthesia.


Our hospital provides a range of surgeries from routine spays and neuters to more complex soft tissue surgery, including some ophthalmic surgery.

Laboratory Services

A full range of services through Idexx Labs.
