Parasites, Bacteria, and Viruses
Parasites, bacteria, and viruses are fairly common among pets. Whether acquired from another pet, a wild animal, or their own mother, infection typically occurs within a pet’s direct environment. Many of these contagions are also zoonotic or capable of being transmitted to human pet owners, which makes them even more concerning.
While a veterinary exam is not always necessary as some viral infections can subside on their own, others need immediate care, so it is always best to seek proper diagnosis and treatment. If you notice abnormal behavior or symptoms in your pet, please contact our office so we can determine what is ailing them.

We signed up with these lovely people 5 years ago! They have taken care of us all as our herd has grown through good times, bad accidents and fox tails! We are thoroughly blessed to be in their care!
I love this vet, he takes good care of both of my dogs. Now it's time to take my cat in. Then he will be seeing all three of my animals. Thank you for the extra mile for my pets.
Both vets are knowledgeable & professional. The office is always clean. The ladies in the office are very friendly, attentive, helpful and treat my dog with love. Couldnt ask for a better animal hospital.
These people are amazing! The staff is very friendly, and the vet is great about explaining everything clearly, making sure I fully understand the care they are giving. I am so glad I found this place, I wouldn't think about going elsewhere.
