Veterinary Services

Animal Care Services

At Pinecrest, we aim to meet as many of your veterinary needs as possible, all under one roof. Our veterinary services include:

Wellness Exams

It’s important that your pet is seen by a licensed veterinarian for a checkup at least once a year. Many health problems in pets are treatable when detected early. Wellness exams also ensure that your pet is up to date on vaccines.


Microchipping is a quick procedure in which a small chip is inserted under your pet’s skin. If your pet is ever lost, the chip can be scanned, allowing the person who finds your pet to access your contact information.


We provide a number of surgical procedures at our animal hospital, including spay and neuter surgery, emergency surgery, oral surgery, orthopedic surgery, internal surgery, and tumor removal.


To keep your pet safe from preventable diseases.

Dental Care

We comfortably sedate our patients so that they have a stress free dental care experience.
