When you are looking for a veterinary care clinic you should be able to count on superior care and excellent service.
Once a year, you should take your pet in for a check-up. This will include a full physical exam, vaccinations, routine blood work, such as heartworm testing, and may include additional healthcare recommendations for your pet.
Bring in any medical history you have of your pet when you come to our vet clinic. It’s best to keep a journal of your pet’s health throughout his or her life. If you have something like this, share it with our team. If not, let us know everything that you think will be important. We can still work with whatever information you have.

We use K-Laser therapy on our patients following surgery or for those who have an injury, as well as to help manage chronic and acute conditions. K-Laser therapy is a painless, FDA-approved procedure that uses low-level lasers to stimulate the natural healing capabilities of the body’s cells.
This form of laser therapy is effective at promoting healing on a cellular level, as well as decreasing inflammation after surgery, for an injury, or on areas of the body affected by chronic illnesses such as arthritis, or acute conditions such as otitis. It can also be used to increase joint mobility and relieve the aches and pains common to geriatric pets.
Having this in-house laboratory allows us to perform a number of blood chemistry tests, including thyroid gland analysis, NSAID therapy and progesterone testing.
Our state-of-the-art laboratory can provide results for dozens of laboratory values often within a matter of minutes. No calling the next day for test results. This lab allows us to provide faster diagnostics to your furry family member.
It is important to schedule yearly annual comprehensive physical exams, vaccinations, parasite checks, and heartworm testing & tick borne disease screening. During your pet’s visit we will discuss and provide information regarding the importance of monthly heartworm prevention, flea and tick prevention, and the importance of routine blood screening, to ensure you have a healthy canine or feline.
Did you know it is important to schedule a yearly dental for your pet? Regular professional cleaning is important to maintaining your pet’s teeth and overall health. We use ultrasonic scaling to clean and polish each of our dental prophylaxis. Schedule an appointment for a dental health check to learn more about routine dental health care for your pet.
All patients are carefully pre-screened to determine the safest anesthetic and surgical protocol specifically for each animal. Common surgical procedures performed include soft tissue surgery such as mass removals, spay and neuter, foreign body removals and dental extractions.
Canine and feline patients are considered geriatric around age 7 and we want to ensure your animal is healthy and active as they get older. In addition to yearly examinations, vaccinations, parasite checks, and heartworm testing, we encourage yearly blood testing (complete blood count, chemistry panel, thyroid level check, and urinalysis) for all of our geriatric patients.
We routinely see patients with various medical conditions such as diabetes, Parvo, upper respiratory infection, heart disease, and renal disease. However, certain internal medicine cases require expertise in cardiology, ophthalmology, neurology, dermatology, oncology, internal medicine, and surgery. Our veterinarians maintain a relationship with local board certified veterinarians for cases needing referrals or additional diagnostics to ensure your pet is receiving the best care.
Making a decision regarding end-of-life care for your pet can be difficult. As your pet ages, they may develop a chronic condition or terminal illness such as cancer, organ failure, osteoarthritis, or dementia. When these conditions can no longer be managed and treated with medical care, and cause significant discomfort for your pet, it may be necessary to consider hospice care. Our staff will assess your pet’s health needs and discuss the options that are available for you and your pet. At Homestead Animal Medical Clinic, our priority is to keep your beloved pet as comfortable as possible for as long as possible.
If your pet is diagnosed with a chronic condition such as diabetes, kidney disease, liver disease, or thyroid disease, we will closely monitor your pet to help manage his or her condition. As we monitor your pet’s chronic condition, our veterinarians can recommend adjustments to his or her diet, changes in medications and treatments, and create a specialized monitoring schedule.
By spaying or neutering your pet, you’ll help control the pet homelessness crisis, which results in millions of healthy dogs and cats being euthanized in the United States each year simply because there aren’t enough homes to go around. There are also medical and behavioral benefits to spaying (female pets) and neutering (male pets) your animals
- Your female pet will live a longer, healthier life.
- Neutering your male companion prevents testicular cancer and some prostate problems.
- Your spayed female pet won’t go into heat.
- Your male dog will be less likely to roam away from home.
- Your neutered male may be better behaved.
