Our doctors have access to in-house and reference labs, digital x-ray (including dental), therapy laser, and diagnostic ultrasound.  We have several local specialty hospitals available for consultation or referral as needed. We see dogs, cats, and some exotics, so some experience with exotics is a plus!
