quietus-2016

This private room provides a soothing ambiance that supports a peaceful passing during euthanasia.   We have designed this room to help make this process as stress free as possible for both the pet and the owner during this difficult time.  To help reduce anxiety, our patients are sedated prior to euthanasia, while owners may be present with their animal at this time; some prefer not to remain for the final step.   We offer private cremation with the ashes returned to you and have multiple urns  available.  We also offer communal cremation or preparation for burial on your own private property if you so wish.  In your time of bereavement we would like to be there for additional support.  Dr. Bane is our pet loss and bereavement counselor.  Dr. Bane has been awarded her Certificate of Training from the Association for Pet Loss and Bereavement. We encourage owner to also visit the following website: www.aplb.org.   Dr. Bane recently underwent an intensive training session to achieve this recognition.  Dr. Bane is available to see appointments for pet grief support.  If you are interested, please contact our front office staff for appointment availability.

Our dental suite contains a state of the art dental unit with controls designed specifically for veterinary dentistry. This allows transitioning from handpiece to handpiece efficiently and conviently – the unit automatically adjusts as the handpiece is lifted. This increases our work efficiency, and decreases the amount of time that our patients need to be under anesthesia.

staffarea-2016

This room is located near the treatment area and is where the staff can eat their lunch, take a break, read a magazine, use the computer or make a personal phone call. Although their break times are supposed to be for relaxing, the staff is never far from the animals and they are always ready to lend a helping hand should we need them.
