FULL Service Veterinary Care on Wheels!
What does it mean when we say "Full Service Veterinary Care"?
It means we can run diagnostics on the go: Blood Work, Urinalysis, Cytologies, Fecal Exams, etc.
It means we have a fully stocked pharmacy with us!
It means we can treat most acute and chronic conditions your pet may have in the comfort of your home.

Besides being on wheels and on-site, what makes us different?
Simple: We care. We care enough to perform pre-anesthetic blood work prior to surgery to ensure that your pet’s anesthesia is as safe for them as possible. We care enough to have anesthetic monitoring during your pet’s procedure to ensure their safety throughout their care. We care enough to place your patient on IV fluids throughout their procedure to ensure a stable blood pressure. We care enough to be sure your pet has adequate pain medications on board so they don't feel pain. We care enough to take dental radiographs for each dental procedure to ensure we aren't missing a problem. Bottom line: We want to offer you the best possible surgical care for your pet!

Acupuncture is used all around the world and in conjunction with Western medicine we can see an increased speed of recovery, reduction in pain medications, and increased well-being. Acupuncture may stimulate nerves, increase circulation, alleviate muscle spasms and increase hormones in the body that make us and pets feel better.
Acupuncture may be used to treat a variety of conditions most commonly it is used for chronic pain management, intervertebral disc disease, and degenerative joint disease.
