Clinic Tour


Lobby - In the front of the clinic is our lobby where a receptionist will greet you and take a brief history of your pet's condition.


Exam rooms- After arriving at the clinic, a technician will weigh your pet and escort you to a fully-equipped examination room where we do comprehensive physical examinations, consultations, vaccinations and much more.


Treatment room -Behind the scenes of our examination rooms is our treatment facility.  Here we provide specialized care for extended-stay patients.  These rooms also serve as our surgical preparatory area.


Laboratory - Our in-house laboratory equipment allows us to perform routine blood tests and provide same-day results so treatment may be implemented in a timely manner.


Pharmacy - Also part of our treatment area is our in-house pharmacy where Dr. Stark prescribes medications for all of your pet's needs.  Our staff is trained in handling all pharmaceutical products as well as the labeling and measuring of these products to ensure the safety of you and your pet.

- Adjacent to our treatment room is our surgical facility where we perform both elective and emergency surgical procedures.  We schedule our elective surgeries for Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays.

Radiology - Our state of the art radiological equipment allows us to x-ray your pets.

Boarding - Our boarding facilities include indoor, climate-controlled runs and cages.  Here, we house dogs and cats while their owners are away.  For cats, we have comfortable cages with enough room for your pet to eat and sleep.  For our dogs, we have both medium sized cages and large runs depending on the size of your pet.  Care is provided for all of our boarders 365 days a year.

Isolation - A specialized area of our boarding facilities includes our isolation ward where we house contagious animals or animals with specialized needs.
