Our animal hospital offers a full range of general medical/surgical services, boarding and grooming for dogs and cats.

Local Medical Issues

There are numerous medical conditions in the Richmond area that should concern us as pet owners. Unfortunately, our winters are not severe enough to kill most parasites in our area so we have to deal with things such as heartworms, fleas, ticks and allergies on a year-round basis. While these can affect cats as well as dogs, we can offer prevention and treatments to keep your pets healthy. Please ask us for more information.
