Full-Service Veterinarian in Fort Worth, TX

We use advanced medical techniques and equipment and common-sense practices to partner with you, the pet parent. Our staff likes to share knowledge and information on pet care and best practices to help you care for your pets. Our services include:

Preventative Pet Care

To quote an old saying, “A pinch of prevention is worth a pound of cure.” Just like with you, routine exams and testing goes a long way in catching potential health problems in their early stages. Preventative Care has always been the backbone of our practice.

Diagnostic Care

We have in-house diagnostic equipment including digital x-rays, ultrasound imaging and lab testing. We also have access to several reference labs, if needed, for a complete picture of your pet’s health.

Dental Care

Oral health is as important to your pet as it is for you. Good oral care can improve and extend the quality and length of your pet’s health. Digital dental x-rays are part of each thorough dental cleaning and polishing we do. To those that qualify, we offer a monthly preventative cleaning to help maintain your pet’s overall good health.


Soft tissue surgeries including spays and neuters, gastrointestinal, and tumor removals.

Parasite Prevention

Heartworms, fleas, and ticks are an ever increasing problem in Texas. We recommend and carry several choices to make it convenient and affordable to keep your pet pest free.
