INTERNAL MEDICINE and RADIOLOGY

We cover all areas of internal medicine, including: Cardiology; Ophthalmology; Neurology; Dermatology; Gastroenterology; Oncology; Endocrinology; among others.  Radiology or X-rays help our veterinarians evaluate muscular-skeletal, cardiovascular (cardiopulmonary), gastrointestinal, reproductive and urinary systems. We also have a specific machine for taking dental radiographs.

 


BEHAVIORAL MEDICINE

Every client would like their pets to be loving and well-mannered. Unfortunately, due to many circumstances, pets develop behaviors that cause their owners distress, discomfort or injury. Dr. Brammeier has a special interest in helping clients improve their pet's behavior. He holds a certificate of completion from the North American Post-Graduate Institute, for successfully completing a week long intensive course on Behavior Medicine.  Most behavior problems are best prevented or addressed when they first become a problem.  If you have concerns about your pet's behavior don't wait, call soon, to get help. As a service to our clients we are currently providing Behavior Education evenings free of charge with Lucy Bailey a Certified Professional Dog Trainer. Our "Ask the Trainer" evenings are Tuesdays from 7-8:30 PM. The class is limitted to 6 dogs and their owners so you need to make a reservation.

 

DENTAL CARE

Regular professional cleaning is important to maintaining your pet's teeth. We use modern and safe ultrasonic scaler 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.  Dentistry is another area of specific interest for Dr. Brammeier.  He and Dr. Fry have spent extra time and resources on their education about dentistry and equipment to provide detailed, compassionate dental care for your pets. Our pre-treatment evaluation includes detailed charting of the condition of the patient's teeth and gums.  We have a digital dental radiograph machine that allows us to efficiently get specific detailed films of the patient's mouth. The digital capability significantly reduces the time required to obtain radiographs and the length of general anesthesia for the patient.

 

 

SURGERY

We offer the most advanced surgical techniques and technology. All patients are carefully screened for safety, and anesthetics are specifically tailored to your pet. Surgical services and facilities include: board certified surgeon available for consultation; fully trained veterinary and technical staff, to ensure the safest, most efficient, state-of-the-art procedures for your pet; heated surgery tables for greater comfort; advanced sterilization techniques; ECG and blood pressure monitors; intensive after surgery care and full blood testing.  Most orthopedic, and some soft tissue surgeries are referred to a local board certified veterinary surgeon.

 

GROOMING SERVICES

Treat your pet to a luxurious bath. Our special, cleansing baths remove dirt, debris and that doggie pet odor to make your pet feel fresh and revitalized. If scratching is a problem, our medicated baths contain soothing agents that stop the itching. Services also include nail trim and ear cleaning. Because Dr. Brammeier has a special interest in Dermatology, he works closely with the groomer to maintain optimal skin health and coat condition for our patients.

 

HOSPICE/EUTHANASIA SERVICES

Saying goodbye to a long-time friend is painful. We work with clients to ensure their pet's comfort and dignity. Services include taking care of the remains as directed by the client. House call appointments are our preferred method of assisting the pets and their owners in this difficult and private time.

LASER THERAPY 

We have a Class IV deep tissue laser.  The noninvasive treatment is used to reduce pain and inflammation in the body, as well as increase speed of healing.  We frequently use the laser on arthritic and post surgical patients

HOUSE CALLS

Dr. Brammeier and Dr. Shaw are available for house calls.  Generally, these appointments require advance planning.  Many clients choose a house call appointment when it is time to say a final "goodbye" to their pet.

 

FULLY STOCKED PHARMACY

We stock a wide range of the best veterinary drugs in the animal healthcare field.  You may request that prescription refills be mailed to you. We are also partnered with Vets First Choice,  an online pharmacy.

NUTRITIONAL COUNSELING

Some pets require special food, and all pets benefit from a balanced diet. 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.

 

PAIN MANAGEMENT

Veterinary patients feel pain and discomfort under the same circumstances as people do. We know that recognizing and alleviating pain in animals is the essence of good patient care.

 

ULTRASOUND

This non-invasive, state-of-the-art technology uses sound waves to painlessly examine specific internal organs, primarily the heart and abdominal organs. We work with the Board Certified radiologists of Veterinary Imaging Specialists to provide skilled, accurate ultrasound examinations.
