We are having technical difficulties with our phone system. Verizon tells us it is on their end, and they will be out here on Friday (2-9-18) to fix it.

At this time, calls to our main number cannot get through, nor can callers leave a message.

We understand how frustrating this can be and hope to have the issue resolved soon.

In the meantime, please use our secondary number 757-583-2610 to reach us during the day. To leave a message, Contact Us here.

Now that Thanksgiving is over, and you’ve finished eating

you have finished eating, haven’t you?

We’re going to do some veterinary math.

In this case, seven.

If you feel sick after seeing these pictures,
imagine how your pet would feel if these worms were in its intestines.

The good news:
Roundworms are preventable with a monthly dose of
heartworm / intestinal worm medication,
like HeartGard Plus or Sentinel.

Contact Us to be sure your pet is protected.
