More Moments That Matter

Whether because of injury, disease, or old age, there may come a time in your dog’s or cat’s life where they can’t enjoy the things they love to do: Walks on the beach. Hikes up the mountain. Chasing squirrels.

Our board-certified surgeons are on staff and on-call 24/7 and utilize specialized equipment (CT scanner and MRI) and techniques, including non-invasive laparoscopy, with dedicated separate soft-tissue, neurology and orthopedic surgery suites.

Our goal is to return your companion dog or cat to normal (or as close as possible) so they get to enjoy what they love. It’s those moments, after all, that matter most.
