It’s imperative that we see your pet at least once a year before their senior years to ensure that they are healthy and on the right track when it comes to vaccines, preventative care, and overall lifestyle management. These exams will include a weigh-in to check weight, a full nose-to-tail exam, and a discussion with you to ensure that everything is going well at home.
These visits can also include fecal checks for parasites, heartworm tests, senior or junior bloodwork panels, vaccines, and addressing any other health concerns you might have.
As our pets hit their senior years, we do recommend having them come in twice a year to ensure that everything is looking good and that we’re maintaining overall baselines on their health. As health issues due to age develop, we’ll be able to have a headstart on treating them.
From your pet’s visit, we’ll be sure to go over the importance of vaccines and to make sure that your pet is on the proper schedule to keep them protected.
We offer the safest veterinary vaccines on the market. We even carry the preservative-free vaccine for cats to reduce the incidence of sarcomas (cancer). Vaccines are a crucial part of an animal’s preventative healthcare. It helps to prevent them from contracting and/or spreading certain diseases.
For puppies and kittens, our puppy/kitten wellness packages include all the vaccines pets under 2 years old need. You can learn more about our wellness plans on this page!
We understand that having a pet in for a surgical operation can be stressful for the entire family, and we’ll be there every step of the way.

We make sure every single precaution is taken.
We use the best anesthetics available to provide an extra margin of safety and comfort for our patients. With a modern surgical suite, we are capable of providing our clients and patients with a wide range of surgical procedures including routine surgeries as well as abdominal exploratory, ear and eye procedures, ACL repairs, dental surgery that includes full mouth radiographs, and other orthopedic procedures.

According to the American Veterinary Dental Society, 70% of adult cats and 80% of adult dogs show symptoms of oral disease. We’re here to help you get ahead of that to keep your pet feeling their best.
Dental care is an important piece of your dog or cat’s preventative health care program. Dental disease can not only be painful and inhibit proper nutrition, but it can also lead to serious systemic issues including damage to your pet’s kidneys, heart or liver.
Here at FMA Animal Hospital, we offer affordable routine dental procedures, including teeth cleaning, scaling, polishing, and extractions. Dental disease can not only be painful and inhibit proper nutrition, but it can also lead to serious systemic issues including damage to your pet’s kidneys, heart or liver. Routine dental care can add years of healthy life to your pet.
We also perform dental surgery for non-routine dental needs. Our clinic is equipped with a dental x-ray machine that allows us to conduct full mouth radiographs with dental surgery.

Our pets cannot always tell us what’s wrong, and it’s important that we’re able to diagnose them when their symptoms cannot be seen just by examining them. We use the latest in imaging technology to ensure that we’re able to quickly diagnose and treat your pet.
We have an ultrasound machine that helps us visualize internal body structures. Ultrasound is a pain-free, totally non-invasive technique that uses high-frequency sound waves to produce a real-time image of your pet’s internal organs. FMA Animal Hospital has an in-house digital radiography (x-ray) machine that links automatically to your animal’s records. Within minutes the doctors can review your pet’s radiographs making your visit even shorter than it needs to be. No need to wait for developing exposures.
What is an ultrasound?
Ultrasonography, or ultrasound, is a diagnostic imaging technique similar to radiography (X-rays) and is often used in conjunction with radiography and other diagnostics. It allows us to visualize certain organs very thoroughly, including the heart, kidneys, liver, gallbladder, bladder, spleen, and intestines. It can also be useful to detect and monitor pregnancy. We work closely with specialists – people who have dedicated their entire lives to imaging – so you get the most out of this fantastic diagnostic tool.
What is an x-ray?
A radiograph (X-ray) is a type of photograph that looks inside the body and reveals information that may not be discernible from the outside. Radiography can be used to evaluate your pet’s internal organs like the heart, lungs, and abdominal organs, as well as bones. When it comes to accurately diagnosing your pet, radiology can be an extremely valuable tool in our diagnostic arsenal.
What is endoscopy?
Endoscopy is a fantastic minimally-invasive tool which helps us diagnose problems. It helps us visualize tight spots (like in the nose) and hidden spots (like in the stomach). While scoping, we can also take biopsies, which can help with tricky cases. Endoscopy also helps us solve problems!
