Our experienced veterinary team provides comprehensive medical care, ranging from routine to advanced procedures and treatments.
Although we handle the majority of your pet’s medical and surgical needs in-house, we occasionally refer patients to veterinary specialists or specialty clinics when advanced training or equipment will be beneficial. Below you will find a list of treatments that we currently offer in-house.
Our veterinary team has you covered!
MOVES Internal Medicine

Veterinary internal medicine refers to the use of advanced diagnostic services and treatment plans for illnesses related to the internal body systems of animals. Our team can help diagnose and treat conditions of the GI system, kidneys, liver, heart, nervous system, endocrine glands, bladder, and respiratory systems. We also treat blood disorders, immune deficiencies, and infectious diseases.
When it comes to orthopedic care, prevention, detection, and treatment of injuries or disorders of the skeletal system and associated muscles, joints, and ligaments are an important and vital part of keeping your pet up, running, and healthy. In addition to a thorough physical exam, we use laboratory tests and radiological findings to determine the cause of your pet’s pain and/or the extent of their injury or illness.
Our veterinarians work with you to determine the cause of pain and teach you how to recognize pain in your pet. Acute or chronic pain affects your pet’s ability to physically function and can also have a detrimental effect on their well-being and state of mind. Pain management is one of our primary considerations when treating a pet for any medical condition.
Laser therapy is often used in conjunction with physical therapy or rehab and is a non-invasive, pain-free treatment that helps to reduce inflammation, decrease pain, and aid in healing. Laser therapy is good for post-surgical patients, chronic arthritis, skin conditions, muscle strains and sprains, joint or disc disease, wounds, bites, and burns.
Acupuncture is the practice of inserting needles into body tissues in order to relieve both localized and general pain and inflammation. The most common conditions treated with acupuncture include arthritis, developmental bone disease, disc disease, and tendon or ligament injuries. Acupuncture can also help, nervous disorders, skin problems, kidney disease, diabetes, GI disorders, respiratory problems, and much more.
Chinese Herbal Medicine
Chinese herbal medicine is a holistic approach to healing. Along with nutrition management and acupuncture, it comprises a system of diagnosis and systemic treatment commonly known as Traditional Chinese Veterinary Medicine or TCVM. Chinese medicinal herbs are used in dogs and cats for a variety of conditions. Herbal treatments tend to be gentler than medication and may take longer to see clear results.
Hospice & Euthanasia
Deciding when your pet may need hospice care or euthanasia is a very personal and private decision, but that doesn’t mean you have to make this difficult choice on your own. Our hospice and humane euthanasia services are conducted with respect, compassion, and care. If you are worried you have a sick, elderly, or terminally ill pet that is suffering, call us to learn how we can help.
