We care deeply about your pet’s health, which is why we invested in leading-edge diagnostic technology to ensure a timely and accurate diagnosis. Our specialty services range from dentistry to internal medicine to neurology and beyond, so having modern equipment in place gives our team access to everything they need to provide the greatest care for your pet. 

In addition, we have an in-house laboratory, enabling us to perform a wide range of tests and get rapid results.

Internal Medicine

Technology present in our Internal Medicine department includes digital X-ray, ultrasound, echocardiography, CT, fluoroscopy, endoscopy, and interventional radiology. Led by medical director and board-certified veterinary internist Bryan Harnett, DVM, DACVIM, our Internal Medicine team uses these tools to diagnose and treat conditions that may be affecting your pet’s internal body systems including bleeding disorders, endocrine or infectious diseases, gastrointestinal issues, and much more.


Board-certified veterinary dentist Bill Kellner, DVM, DAVDC, leads our Dentistry department and uses a wide range of imaging capabilities to help assess your pet’s oral health. This includes digital dental radiography, CT, and MRI. With these, Dr. Kellner can diagnose the stages of periodontal and endodontic disease as well as view missing teeth, jaw fractures, and oral tumors.
