We believe that the wellness exam is the most crucial of all veterinary health components. A full exam is suggested every year for all animals, or twice yearly for geriatric patients and those suffering chronic illness. The wellness exam is a complete exam that assesses your pet's health from "nose to toes" to assure they stay healthy as they age. We also give special kitten and puppy exams that include a full discussion with a technician about all the questions you may have about your new pet's maturing process. We are prepared to talk in depth about training, food, vaccines, behavior, socialization and more to ensure a proper pet childhood as well as de-bunkthe many pet myths and rumors that often cause confusion when trying to create a healthy life plan for your pet.
Radiology, Ultrasound and K-Laser Therapy
We offer up-to-date digital radiography in house for quick results. We can digitally send radiographs to referring physicians and surgeons if needed. All of our x-rays are sent to mobile workstations so that we can bring the images to you in the exam room. For more complicated cases, a board certified radiologist is brought on-site for ultrasounds. We also have frequent visits from a cardiologist for cardiac work ups without the travel for our clients.
K-Laser is done onsite by trained technicians for pets with chronic pain or wound management problems.For questions call our facility, and check out their website: K-Laser Therapy
We offer: bathing, sanitary shaves, nail trims and dremmel nail trims, ear plucking, anal gland expression and medically appropriate shaving. We do offer shave-downs for our feline patients that do not cooperate with a groomer.
Dental care and Oral surGERY
Oral health is as fundamental to overall health for your pets as it is for you. We take pride in providing professional ultrasonic scaling, hand scaling and polishing in order to effectively treat periodontal disease. We perform full-mouth digital dental radiography with every dental cleaning to thoroughly assess the health of the oral cavity, dental roots, and bones. Depending on the severity of dental disease weextract diseased teeth or preserve vital teeth through various surgical and medical techniques. All oral surgeries require bloodwork and an I.V. catheter to ensure safe anesthesia. Post procedure, we will explain all the x-rays with you and create a personal dental health plan for your pet.
Spaying or neutering is often the first surgery you and your pet will experience together. This routine proceedure offers both behavioral and general health benefits along with contraception control. Our veterinarians also perform growth removals, amputations, eyelid surgeries, cherry-eye correction and eye globe removal (enucleation), various abdominal surgeries, stomach "tacking", feline declaws, and more.
We individualize our vaccine protocol based on the needs and life-style of your pet.
We offer prescription diets which is a great way to personalize the needs for your individual pet and his/her situation from skin support, weight management, even joint support. We offer a variety of foods from Hill's Science Diet, Royal Canin and IAMS. If you have a particular need, just let us know and we willspecial order it for you.
Boarding is offered only to Greenbriar patients. Felines have individual condos with multiple levels that satisfy a cat's preference for height. Our cat ward has large windows to allow plentiful light and outside views. We also use Feliway on towels and bedding to further reduce stress while boarding.

Every dog is leash walked three times daily in our FENCED-IN BACK YARD and given lots of attention by our knowledgeable staff. The kennel is cared for by the same technicians who work with your pets in the exam room. Our grooming area offers a quieter boarding option for our more stressed guests. Boarders are allowed to bring their own bedding,and food if they desire or are more than welcome to use ours. Every canine boarder is required a bath before exiting the hospital, so look forward to having your dog's nails clipped and ears cleaned before coming home smelling wonderful.
Our laboratory area includes the Idexx VetLab Station, which is comprised of an Idexx LaserCyte CBC machine, Catalyst DX machine for in-house chemistries and electrolyte analysis, a PCV centrifuge, urinalysis preparation and interpretations. Also available in-house are SSA urine analysis, ACTH stim testing, feline FIV/ leukemia testing, phenobarbital levels, and much more. Many of our laboratory tests can be completed within a half an hour from sample collection. In case of other laboratory needs we use Idexx as our outside lab. We also regularly preform in house fecal centrifuge analysis, ear and skin cytologies, and "lump inventories" to identify cancerous versus benign growths.
All of our staff are fully trained to handle emergency situations. We have an ICU unit to hospitalize your sick pet. We also have a close working relationship with several E.R.s so that if treatment cannot be completed at our hospital, you can be easily transitioned to an appropriate over night facility. If your pet is experiencing an emergency we do appreciate a phone call ahead even from the car.
