As a veterinarian and animal advocate, I aim to provide compassionate, competent care to my patients and quality service to my clients. As a house call veterinarian for dogs and cats, I come to the client’s home, which provides a convenience to the pet guardian as well as a more relaxed experience for the animal.
In this capacity, I am able to do a complete physical examination and consultation, blood tests as needed, as well as routine procedures such as vaccinations and deworming, and analysis of medical conditions in small animals, such as diabetes, arthritis, hypothyroidism, etc.
I have also managed emergency cases such as traumatic injuries and toxin exposures. Surgeries I have performed include routine surgeries such as spays, castrations, and mass removals, as well as more difficult surgeries such as bloats, cystotomies, and exploratories.
I am a strong advocate of spaying and neutering, both to curb the pet overpopulation crisis as well as for the health benefits to the individual animals. All of my surgery patients receive pre- and post-operative analgesics (pain-relief medications) and minor wound treatment.
I can prescribe needed medications and can also provide acupuncture treatments when appropriate. I have completed a veterinary acupuncture course offered by the Chi Institute of Chinese Medicine. More involved diagnostics such as radiographs (x-rays) and all surgeries will require referral to a nearby animal hospital equipped to handle such cases.
Please note that my practice is not an emergency service. If your pet has a life-threatening emergency, please seek immediate veterinary care at your nearest full-service veterinary hospital. See Emergency Veterinary Contacts.
