How can you tell if your pet’s heart is pumping right?


Schedule your pet’s annual checkup today and let’s take a listen!

When you’re a pet owner, you know a lot about the health of your pet just by using your senses. You can see your pet’s eyes when they’re goopy. You can smell their ear infection a mile away. You can feel the lumps and bumps on their skin. But what about their heart? How do you know if that organ is healthy?


Hairballs, Hacks, Gags and Gas:


Learn why you should schedule your
pet’s annual checkup today!

When you’re a pet owner, you know all the benefits of living with a furry friend in your home. Wet kisses, happy tail wags, loud purrs.

Did you expect hairballs on the carpet? Partially digested garbage strewn all over the floor?

Did you expect your pet to belong to the “Speed Eaters Anonymous Club,” where they eat so fast it comes right back up?

Like many pet owners, you may assume these digestive ailments just happen. You may assume they’re normal and chalk them up to coming with the territory of living with a pet. Perhaps they’ve become regular occurrences that you simply handle with mild frustration. Overall, no worries, you say!

  • Dr. Tom is an amazing vet, you can tell he actually cares about the animals, and does everything he can for them in his power. I have never had a problem going there, kinda spendy but what real good vet is not. Worth the money for sure!

  • Great staff and always caring.

    Greg P. (Facebook Review)
  • Great, highly competent, friendly vet! For years afterwards he would ask by name about our cat, whom he had stitched up after apparently getting into some kind of altercation with another animal, when we'd see him out and about in public. Also great with our dogs.
