A lost pet is a frightening situation with consequences that can be devastating. According to the American Humane Association, about 10 million dogs and cats are lost or stolen every year. A study published by the American Veterinary Medical Association revealed dogs with microchips were 238% more likely to be returned to their families than dogs without them. For cats, the statistic is even more dramatic: those with microchips were 2,000% more likely to be returned home.

This is why the team at Veterinary Medical Center considers microchip lost pet IDs a fundamental way to protect your pet and an important part of responsible pet ownership. We use the Avid microchip system. Each microchip registers the animal with a unique identification number, which is filed in a database with your contact information. The contact information can be updated any time, and it is important to remember to do so whenever your information changes. If your pet is lost, the microchip can be scanned by animal control officers, at shelters, and at veterinary hospitals in the U.S. and in many foreign countries.

The team at Veterinary Medical Center has witnessed the importance of microchipping first hand. A client's poodle had been missing for over a year, and the dog was eventually found three states away. Because the poodle was microchipped, a scan at a local veterinary clinic revealed the dog was a patient at Veterinary Medical Center. We were then able to reunite the dog with his owner.

This safe, reliable, and permanent pet identification takes less than 10 seconds to implant and can save you and your pet days, weeks, or more of fear and anguish.


As the prescribing veterinarian for your pet's medications, we can ensure there is a direct link between the exam room and our pharmacy. This means your pet will receive the right medication, at the right dose, in the right form as quickly as possible. We will also be able to easily guide you on the medication's use as well as monitor its effectiveness.

We maintain a complete inventory of pharmaceuticals, vitamins, shampoos, flea and tick control products and heartworm preventatives to meet the needs of your pet. We also carry a full line of prescription diets. If your pet requires a prescription diet we do not carry, we can easily order it for you.

Ensuring you have convenient and timely access to competitively priced medications is an important aspect of our veterinary practice.

Refills are easy, too. Simply give us a call.

End-of-Life Planning

EuthanasiaFor many pet owners, even thinking about their pet's final days is difficult and emotional. Our animals are a part of our family. It is this strong bond, born from years of loyal companionship, that makes this time particularly hard to bear.

We encourage you to talk with our veterinary healthcare team about these issues before they become urgent. Find out about your options, including our crematory and burial services, make some key decisions ahead of time, and ask us to add this information to your pet's record. Taking the time to plan, as challenging as it may be, will lessen the pain and stress for you and your pet.

All of us at Veterinary Medical Center will do our best to help you prepare for these important issues with the compassion and sensitivity they require.

Grief Counseling

The team at Veterinary Medical Center understands saying goodbye to your beloved pet is an incredibly difficult prospect for you and your family. Should you need us, we are here to help guide you through the experience with the knowledge and compassion required.
