Keep your pet “moving and grooving” – schedule their checkup today!

Musculoskeletal diseases (conditions that involve bones, muscles, and joints) can affect pets of all ages. They can have aches and pains as we do. But sometimes these diseases are hard to spot. Think about your furry friend for a moment…

  • Have they stopped jumping on you when they greet you at the door?
  • Have they stopped perching on the window sill?
  • Is your pet acting “old?”

These changes in activity may be due to weather, age or good training. However, to guarantee your pet is at their best, we have to rule out they don’t have a hidden musculoskeletal problem. Infections, hormonal imbalances, nutrition, blood disorders and arthritis can all affect your pet’s activity—the way they play, move, eat and cuddle!

The good news is we have ways to prevent, cure or manage these conditions, so your pet can continue to have a good quality of life. We are committed to the well-being of your pet for their lifetime. The best way to do this is to book your pet’s checkup today. Make an appointment, and together, we’ll keep your pet’s bones, muscles and joints (and the rest of your furry friend) in good working order!
