We recommend annual wellness care for all pets with annual labwork so we can assess the health of your pet. A bi-annual exam will help us diagnose diseases while they are treatable.

As a practicing veterinarian in the field of small and exotic animal medicine, I spend much of my time with clients discussing animal care and disease states. I’ve developed the Little Critters Pet Health Library to provide pet owners, and people within the veterinary medical field with some of the information on small and exotic animals that I’ve found is often discussed in our practice. This library is intended to provide quick information on some of the problems I encounter frequently in veterinary medicine and also to provide links to other sites with more established libraries.
