Parasite Prevention

We provide fecal analysis to detect microscopic parasites such as giardia and coccidian, as well as visible worms, such as tapeworms, roundworms, and hookworms.

Microchipping

A must for dogs and outdoor cats so a lost pet can be reunited with the owner. It is a permanent form of identification that involves a simple insertion process that needs no anesthesia. Microchipping is a permanent pet identification system that is safe, simple and effective and is designed to quickly identify lost pets and reunite them with their owners. Microchips are a proven way to successfully recover your pet if he or she should become lost.

A microchip is a very small transponder that contains a unique ID code. It requires no battery and remains active for the entire length of the pet’s life. Microchips are safe for dogs and cats of all breeds and ages. It is safe for puppies and kittens, as well as older pets who may wander away from home. The microchip is placed under the skin by a simple injection by a veterinarian or technician.

Once your pet has a microchip, you will need to enroll your pet in a national animal recovery database so that you can be notified if your pet is recovered from being lost or stolen. Our staff will be happy to assist you in this enrollment process. Thousands of veterinarians, animal clinics, and shelters use a hand-held scanner to scan lost pets.
