As dogs grow older, their bodies become less able to cope with physical or environmental stress. Their immune systems become weaker, and they are more prone to developing certain diseases, or conditions including:  Arthritis, Cancer (especially testicular or breast), Kidney Disease,  Prostate Disease,  Cognitive (Brain) Disorders, Liver Disease, Deafness Diabetes Mellitus (Sugar Diabetes), Vision problems, Dental Disease


Here at Family Pet Hospital we take all available safety precautions with every patient who is put under anesthesia. Your pet’s safety is our main concern.

As a safety measure all patients should have pre-anesthetic blood testing and an IV catheter with fluid drip during surgery and recovery. This combination will assist us in stabilizing your pet’s blood pressure and maintaining proper hydration during their procedure, as well as providing the staff with direct access to your pet’s bloodstream in the case that additional medications are needed. The blood test focuses mainly on liver and kidney functions. These two organs filter and flush toxins out of the body, such as the anesthesia drugs that will be used during the sedation of your pet. By testing prior to sedation the doctor will be able to recognize any abnormalities, and can either adjust the anesthesia accordingly or postpone the surgery so that the problem can be treated first. If pet is being spayed and is either pregnant or in heat, there may be an additional surgery fee.

We also have state of the art Leading Edge monitoring system checking ECG, Blood pressure, Temperature, Respiratory rate, Heart rate & SPO2.

We use both X-rays and Ultrasound
X-ray technology allows our veterinarians to capture images of the bones and internal organs. There are many reasons why we might recommend a X-ray. Ultrasound is beneficial for certain cases, such as in diagnosing suspicious masses, to look for internal organ damage, or when examining the heart or pregnant animal.


Microchipping your pet is a permanent ID if your pet is lost or stolen.  
A microchip will not “wear out”, it can permanently and positively identify your pet and link back to you once it is registered.  If your pet is picked up and taken to a shelter or vet, once scanned, the i.d. number will by used to identify your information.


We offer a large inventory of pharmaceuticals, vitamins, regular and medicated shampoos, and prescription food.

We guarantee flea / tick preventatives and heartworm preventatives purchased from us.


Our luxurious baths remove dirt, debris, and pet odor. If skin problems are an issue we also offer medicated baths to help soothe and stop the itching.  Services include nail trim, ear cleaning, and anal gland expression. De-shedding is also available.
