Our Services

At Willow Glen, we are proud to offer a variety of services from wellness exams to emergency care(IF DOCTORS ARE AVAILABLE, OTHERWISE WE MAY HAVE TO REFER YOU TO AN EMERGENCY CLINIC).  A few of these are routine checkups, x-rays, microchipping, surgery, ultrasound, and reproductive services.  We also have an in-house laboratory, allowing us to do blood work on-site and produce rapid results.  Having quick information about blood cell counts, thyroid levels, and urinalysis gives us the opportunity to give your pet fast relief in the case of an illness.    

We also offer service packages for pet dental care, surgery, and vaccination.  We provide all core vaccines in our office, as well as puppy/kitten boosters for new patients.  Non-core vaccines are also available, though this depends on the needs of the individual animal.  Dental services we offer include cleaning, polishing, sealing, fluoride treatment, extractions, and radiographs.  Maintaining proper dental health is crucial for your pet's overall health.  Our office is able to assist with many surgical operations as well, with services ranging from emergency surgery to routine spay and neuter procedures.
