On-Site Ultrasound

For the pet owner, ultrasound provides a non-invasive and pain free way to diagnose many problems with your beloved pet. We may suggest an ultrasound when blood work, x-rays, and other tests do not give a definitive answer for your pet. Just a few of the diseases and conditions we can help to diagnose include age-related heart disease, congenital heart disease, thoracic tumors, abdominal tumors, gastrointestinal disease, liver disease, gall bladder disease, kidney disease, adrenal gland disease, stones in the urinary bladder and kidneys, and pregnancy.

Digital Dental X-Ray

We have a new state of the art digital dental x-ray. Please call for details on this new technology.

Pet Boarding

Boarding is available at Pine Valley. Your dog will be taken out three times a day in our outdoor runs. Every time you pet goes out, their kennel is cleaned and fresh water is given. The cats are not let out but do get plenty of attention.. There is plenty of action going on all day in the kennel so your pet won't be bored! We also visit them lots! Feel free to bring beds, toys, food , favorite treats or anything else that will make your pet comfortable here.
