Pet Wellness Services
Pets First Animal Hospital is a full-service veterinary hospital dedicated to providing compassionate and extraordinary veterinary care for your beloved four-legged family members. As pet owners ourselves and people who have dedicated our lives to the care of companion animals, we have placed our focus on providing the best preventative medical care possible. Simply stated, preventing illness and disease is the best means to ensure the health and wellbeing of your pet as well as to minimize the lifetime cost of care.
This is why we offer thorough, nose-to-tail wellness exams, dental prophylaxis and appropriate vaccines for all of the animals we provide care for. These simply are the fundamentals of an effective preventative care plan. We also offer a wide range of health maintenance services such as behavior and nutritional counseling, alternative medicine, microchip lost pet ID, specialized senior and puppy/kitten packages, complete laboratory evaluations, and more. We also have a Pet Boutique in our hospital filled with veterinarian approved nutritional products, pet clothes, leads, toys, and treats.
Unfortunately, we also realize that some of our pets may experience a periodic illness or injury, which is why Pets First Animal Hospital is ready to meet any medical challenge. We have advanced diagnostic equipment such as radiographs and ultrasound, modern surgical suite, wide range of pain management drugs and delivery methods, and an extensive list of referral specialists covering a wide range of medical modalities: neurology, ophthalmology, oncology, physical therapy, and intensive care.
Please take a look through the services we offer in order to learn why we believe they are important to the health of your pet, and how we will meet the very high standards you have for your furry friend.
