The cornerstone of preventive healthcare is the routine comprehensive examination. This allows us to find and correct smaller issues before they broaden, identify risk factors like obesity and dental disease and develop programs to control these issues. Wellness visits also provide an opportunity for us to work with you to develop the best vaccination, flea, tick and heartworm program for your pet to prevent many serious and potentially deadly diseases.
Your puppy or kitten visit will include a full “nose-to-tail” physical examination. We will look for any signs of illness and make sure that your new pet is in good health. These wellness visits also present an opportunity to discuss your new pet’s recommended vaccine schedule and the best plan for parasite testing, treatment, and prevention.
When our pets are sick, injured or just not feeling like themselves, they can’t speak to tell us what’s wrong. It’s up to us to recognize a potential problem and address it in a timely manner. LVC offers a broad range of veterinary diagnostic services to help manage the ongoing health of our patients. Whether it’s routine blood work or advanced ultrasound imaging, we’ll get to the bottom of whatever is ailing your pet so we can get them on the road to recovery as quickly as possible.
We understand how stressful it can be to bring your pet in for surgery. That’s why we strive to make each procedure, whether routine or complex, as safe and comfortable as possible for every patient we serve.

Rest assured that when you bring your pet to us for surgery, they will be in excellent hands.
Radiography is painless, safe, and completely non-invasive, and it uses only very low doses of radiation. Radiographs can be used to evaluate bones as well as the size, shape, and position of many of the body’s organs. Radiography can also be used to diagnose bladder stones, broken bones, chronic arthritis, certain spinal cord diseases, and a variety of other conditions.
We now offer your pets Companion Laser Therapy. Laser therapy provides a non-invasive , pain-free, surgery-free, drug free treatment which is used to treat a variety of conditions and can be performed in conjunction with existing treatment protocols.

Whether it is to help diagnose an illness or to screen blood levels for thyroid or phenobarbitol medications , our fully equipped laboratory allows us to have blood work results in minutes. We utilize a veterinary commercial laboratory for specialized testing and consultation.
Your pet can benefit greatly from regular wellness examinations or checkups. Whether your pet is a youngster, a “senior citizen,” or any age in between, wellness examinations provide an excellent opportunity for us to conduct a thorough physical examination and develop a health profile for your pet. This information will help us identify medical problems and any other issues that can affect your pet’s health and quality of life.
Let us examine your pet’s teeth and gums to help determine if there are any dental issues you should know about. After a brief visual examination, we may recommend a more detailed examination (which requires sedation), a dental cleaning, or options for at-home dental care.
We offer routine bathing and medicated baths to help with many skin conditions. Drop off your pet and have them smelling fresh and clean. We also offer nail trims and use a dremel tool to grind and smooth the rough edges.
