As a full-service veterinary care facility, we offer a wide range of services to keep your pet healthy and happy throughout its life. These services include:

  • Preventive Care – Preventive care services are those that prevent sickness and contribute to your pet’s long-term health. These include wellness exams, parasite prevention, vaccinations, dermatology care, pet dental services, pet diagnostics, nutritional counseling, and more.
  • Pet Exams – Through annual wellness exams, we can monitor your pet’s health and catch problems in their early stages when they’re quicker and easier to treat. We’ll also run diagnostic tests to uncover hidden medical issues that may not be showing symptoms.  
  • Vaccinations – Our Ames, IA, veterinarian can set up a vaccination schedule for your pet to ensure he’s protected from life-threatening diseases. We offer core and non-core vaccines to keep your pet in good health.
  • Pet Dental Care – An annual dental checkup and cleaning will help keep your pet’s teeth healthy and strong. We also offer tooth extraction, periodontal disease treatment and other dental services that your pet may need.
  • Spay and Neuter Services - We provide safe and effective spay and neuter surgery to prevent unwanted pregnancies and protect your furry friend against reproductive infections and conditions.   
  • New Puppy Wellness Exams – Puppies need extra TLC to help them grow into healthy, strong dogs. We recommend checkups every 3-4 weeks so we can monitor your pup’s growth and development. Our new puppy wellness exams include nose to tail inspections to uncover signs of common health issues like ear infection, skin allergies, fleas, etc.  We'll also check your puppy’s heart, lungs, and joints and perform lab tests to check for parasites and other internal issues.
  • New Puppy Nutrition - Puppies need nutritious food to grow healthy and strong. Our Ames, IA, veterinarian can recommend puppy food suited to your pup’s age, size, and breed.
  • New Puppy Vaccines – Puppies need a series of vaccines for protection against diseases once they’re weaned from their mother’s milk. New puppy vaccines can start when your pup’s 6-8 weeks old with boosters scheduled every 3-4 weeks until your pup’s 16-18 weeks old.
