Specialty Veterinary Services

In some cases, your pet may require specialty services. Our hospital is happy to provide allergies, dermatology, and cardiology services for these needs. We will work to identify symptoms, form a diagnosis, and provide your pet with the best treatment possible. Our network also includes a variety of exceptional referrals in the event your pet requires further assistance.

Allergies & Dermatology

We want your pet to feel their best inside and out.

From topical issues to more serious infections, allergies and conditions affecting the skin, ears, hair and nails can be extremely uncomfortable and irritating for your pet. Our professional dermatology services give your pet relief by devising individualized treatment plans for allergies, infections, parasites, dermatitis, autoimmune disease, hormonal disorders, tumors and skin cancer.

  • Hot Spots
  • Vomiting

A diagnosis is the first step towards healing.

At times, we can make a diagnosis simply by looking at your pet's skin and symptoms, however, further examination may be necessary in some cases. If so, we commonly analyze blood samples, skin scrapings, biopsies and cultures to pinpoint the exact cause of discomfort. With the help of our in-house lab, we can promptly and accurately identify what is ailing your pet.

Finding a Cure

Based on your pet's diagnosis and the complexity of their condition, we will develop a personalized treatment plan to work towards a cure. This may consist of a simple topical cream, or we may have to combine multiple treatment methods to see what works best for your pet. Allergies are a bit more difficult to manage, so it is best to pay close attention to your pet's symptoms and the seasons.

  • Contact allergens: parasites, grass & weeds, household cleaning supplies
  • Air-borne allergens: pollen, dust, dust mites, mold spores, weeds & grass
  • Food allergens: protein sources (chicken, pork & beef), wheat & grains


Your pet's heart is something to treasure.

If your pet suffers from a condition of the heart and circulatory system, our doctors are here to share their expertise in protecting your pet's special heart with cutting-edge diagnostics and treatments for common heart conditions such as heart murmurs, heart arrhythmia, congestive heart failure and congenital cardiac disease.

Your pet's heart cannot wait. In most cases, we are able to analyze and share results with you the same day. Our doctors are prepared to diagnose your pet using cardiac blood markers and echocardiography, and by evaluating abnormal heart shape or size, electrical impulses and heart rhythms, and heart performance. Based on your pet's diagnosis, we will design a specialized treatment plan to meet your pet's specific needs. Before beginning treatment, we will always discuss the benefits and risks with you.

If you notice any of the following symptoms, your pet may be experiencing a cardiac condition:

  • Difficulty Breathing
  • Coughing
  • Weakness
  • Fainting
  • Swelling
