While you are away, your pet can visit our clean, air conditioned and heated boarding facility. We offer individual indoor kennels of all sizes and an outdoor exercise area for each pet. You can rest easy knowing your pet is being pampered by our professional staff. In additional to reasonable daily rates we offer Ala Carte services that include baths, pedicures, individual play times and the convenience and security of having a doctor on call 24/7 in case of any emergency. Professional grooming appointments may be made during your pet’s stay with us, too. Your pet can be admitted and picked up during regular business hours Monday thru Saturday. Saturday/Sunday evening admit/pickup is available from 5:30-6:30 pm and Sunday morning admit/pickup is available from 8:00-9:00 am for your convenience. Our technical staff is also our boarding staff over the weekends so your pet is with people they already know and trust. We provide all bedding, leashes and food/water dishes while your pet stays with us. ** Ala Carte Services for pets that are admitted on Sunday morning and released on Sunday afternoon may not be available due to staffing**
Regular professional cleaning is important to maintaining your pet’s teeth. We use modern and safe ultrasound to clean each tooth thoroughly – above and below the gum line. Dental technicians polish teeth to create a smooth, lustrous tooth surface more resistant to plaque buildup. Fluoride treatments help strengthen enamel and reduce tooth sensitivity.
We have a digital dental x-ray machine that can be used to evaluate any diseased teeth, and any extractions are done with local nerve blocks to make the procedure as pain-free as possible.
We are excited to introduce another technology to assist us in providing health care for your pets. We now have a cryosurgery unit which allows us another surgical option when dealing with growths, cysts, skin tags, and tumors on your pet’s skin and ears. Cryo means freezing. Cryosurgery is the freezing of unwanted tissue to remove it from your pet’s skin. A great example is the cysts, warts, and skin tags, that many smaller breed dogs get as they age. It is common for these bumps to get cut during grooming and bleed. Cryosurgery can remove these easily. The great thing about cryosurgery is that many of these lumps can be removed without sedation or anesthesia in an outpatient setting. Also because of the freeze – thaw cycle used in the cryosurgical procedure, several lumps can be removed in the same time as it takes to remove one, making it economical for multiple removals at the same time. The cryosurgery procedure involves freezing the lump, then allowing it to thaw. This cycle is repeated 2 or 3 times depending on the type of growth. In the first days after cryosurgery, the lump may look red and swollen, then, as the frozen tissues die they turn dark, and may ooze serum until they dry up and fall off leaving a scar that heals quickly to normal skin. Total time from freezing to healing depends on the type and size of the lump but can vary from 2 to 6 weeks. Because the freezing process freezes the nerve ending there is very little pain during cryosurgery and as the tissue heals. If your pet has unwanted skin growths you think should be removed, call and talk to our doctors to see if cryosurgery could be an option for your pet.

Laser Therapy can relieve pain, reduce swelling and increase range of motion. Often the pet will exhibit renewed energy and freedom of movement after experiencing laser therapy. The typical treatment is 3 to 8 minutes, depending on the size of the area being treated. Laser Therapy is the use of specific wavelengths of light (red and infrared) to create therapeutic effects. These effects include improved healing time, pain reduction, increased circulation and decreased swelling. The number of treatments necessary will depend on the condition being treated and your doctor will make appropriate recommendations.
Microchips have helped reunite thousands of pets with their families. We offer the most widely used microchip products to increase the chances of a safe recovery.
Some pets require special food, and all pets benefit from a balanced diet. We carry Hill’s Science Diet Prescription Foods along with a complete line of non-prescription foods. Our trained and certified staff is available to help you choose the right diet for your pet to keep him or her happy, healthy and active.

Veterinary patients feel pain and discomfort under the same circumstances as people do such as recovering from surgery, injury, and arthritis pain. We know that recognizing and alleviating pain in animals is the essence of good patient care.
PRP - Platelet Rich Plasma
PRP therapy utilizes blood plasma with concentrated platelets that once activated accelerate the healing properties of the isolated growth factor. .
Radiology – or X-rays – help our veterinarians evaluate muscles and bones, heart and lungs, stomach and intestinal tract, and reproductive and urinary systems. We recently acquired digital x-ray capability. This new service gives us a high-quality visual tool to diagnose your pet quickly with the cutting-edge technology available to us. We also have the ability to send your digital x-rays to a referral specialist electronically to get additional health services quickly. We offer PennHip and OFA x-rays for pre-breeding screens or for hip/elbow dysplasia. Dr. Keller is the only Certified Penn Hip Specialist in the area to offer this service.
Stem Cell Therapy
We are now offering Stem Cell Therapy for dogs and cats suffering from osteoarthritis, hip dysplasia and other degenerative diseases.
Stem Cells are the repair cells in the body. This all natural therapy can lengthen and rejuvenate the quality of life of pets suffering from these diseases. The stem cells reduce inflammation and pain while helping to re-build bone and soft tissue. Healing will continue from weeks to months and the benefits generally last eighteen months or more without the need for pain medication.
Adipose Stem Cell Technology does not involve embryonic stem cells. The procedure uses the animal's own adult stem cells from fat tissue to heal and repair, therefore the method is extremely safe.
We offer the most advanced surgical techniques and technology. The day of surgery all patients are given complete physical exam by a veterinarian. Blood tests are highly recommended for all surgeries but are required for pets over the age of 5 years. This helps us carefully screen and tailor an anesthetic protocol specifically for to your pet. Surgical services and facilities include:
- Highly-trained veterinary staff to offer the most up-to-date procedures
- Fully-trained technical staff
- Heated surgery table/Bair Hugger for greater comfort
- Advanced sterilization techniques
- Physical monitoring during surgery of all vitals
- Blood pressure, ECG, and oxygen saturation monitors
- Intensive after surgery care and full blood testing
This non-invasive, state-of-the-art technology uses sound waves to painlessly examine specific internal organs, primarily the heart and abdominal organs. Pregnancy exams are also available.
