Scratching, itching, hot spots… Your pet’s itchy skin can drive both you and your pet crazy! While it is helpful to alleviate the desire to scratch, if the cause of the itchy skin is left untreated, your pet may be left exposed to serious health problems. Diseases of the skin can be painful and uncomfortable and diagnosis can be challenging. However, one of the most common reasons we see pets at the hospital is for skin and ear problems. Not only are these unpleasant for you and your pet, problems like these can actually affect your pet’s quality of life. But, don’t worry! We’ve got a solution. Our doctors are highly experienced with these common problems and can help your pet get back to a happy, scratch-free life!

By employing several different diagnostic tools in our state-of-the-art laboratory and listening to you, the pet parent, about what seems to aggravate the problems, you can rest assured that the “itchies” don’t have to be normal!

State-of-the-Art Hospital

Our state-of-the-art hospital features a full laboratory, digital radiology, ultrasonography, the most commprehensive vaccines available, and a staff that is dedicated to providing the best care possible for your pet.


Our doctors and staff understand that not all pets are able to come to the office and that fear and anxiety are greatly reduced by examining a pet in its home environment. Therefore, we routinely go to our clients’ homes and perform exams. 


We are affiliated with Muddy Paws Country Spa and can offer full service grooming by appointment. Pending availability, you can add grooming to your dog’s boarding or daycare stay.
