Health, Wellness, and Immunization
We strive to prevent illness whenever possible and encourage a preventive approach to your pet’s medical care. We will assess your pet’s risk and make recommendations for testing and vaccination to help provide the best medical care for your pet. We also offer wellness plans to make the best care affordable now, with low monthly payment options.
Regular professional dental cleaning is important to maintaining your pet’s overall health. We use modern and safe ultrasound to clean each tooth thoroughly – above and below the gum line. Dental assistants polish teeth to create a smooth, lustrous tooth surface more resistant to plaque buildup. Digital Dental radiology is available to ensure complete dental care is available to your pet.
Illness doesn’t always have a physical cause. We can assess your pet’s needs and if necessary, refer your pet to a trained animal behaviorist who can help determine the cause of such disorders as separation anxiety and obsessive behavior. As a team, we can create a treatment plan that will provide the best outcome for both you and your pet.
We offer the most advanced surgical techniques and technology. All patients are carefully screened for safety, and anesthetics are specifically tailored to your pet. Surgical services and facilities include: fully trained veterinary and technical staff, to ensure the safest, most efficient, state-of-the-art procedures for your pet; heated surgical blankets for greater comfort; advanced sterilization techniques; ECG and oxygen saturation monitors; intensive after surgery care and full blood testing.
This non-invasive, state-of-the-art technology uses sound waves to painlessly examine specific internal organs, primarily the heart and abdominal organs. Pregnancy exams are also available. When an ultrasound is necessary, there are several trained veterinary ultrasonographers in the area that can be scheduled to come to our facility and provide the service.
Acupuncture is one of the four branches of traditional Chinese Veterinary Medicine. It is a tool that can be used in conjunction with conventional medicine to improve your pets quality of life in many disease processes, and also in preventative medicine. The most common uses of acupuncture in veterinary medicine are pain management and anxiety, but acupuncture is also very useful in many chronic internal medicine diseases. Acupuncture involves the insertion of thin sterile needles into specific points on the body in order to cause a therapeutic effect. Ninety-five percent of patients are comfortable with this therapy, and due to the relaxation effect, some animals will actually fall asleep during their acupuncture treatment.
Bathing and Grooming
Our caring healthcare team will lather your pet in luxury with high quality veterinary approved shampoos. Our special, cleansing baths remove dirt, debris and odors – but won’t remove your pet’s topical flea control. Services also include nail trim, ear cleaning, and anal gland expression. We are also a flea free facility so your pet will receive a complimentary capstar tablet during his or her stay with us.
We offer grooming services at our Carolina Beach Animal Hospital on Tuesday, Thursday and Friday. Our groomer, Hillary Spaziano, has been grooming for over 10 years. She has a special way of building trust with our clients and their pets. Want to build your kitties confidence, then get a lions cut to tame that mane! We have everything from a basic bathing package to full grooming packages. We even offer a pampered puppy package for your precious babies. Ask a receptionist about adding the Pampered Pet Spa Package, and make it a perfect day for your companion!
We offer boarding for both dogs and cats. Separate dog and cat wards are maintained to keep your furry friends relaxed. We understand that pets are like our children – we feed, nurture and lavish attention on them. Our highly qualified kennel attendants do the same when you can’t be there. We provide tender loving care (such as brushing and cuddling), and supervised outdoor playtime to keep them happy and active. We are a flea free facility so your pet will be provided with a complimentary capstar tablet on the day of arrival and once again before going home.
Microchips have helped reunite thousands of pets with their families. We offer the HomeAgain microchip products to increase the chances of a safe recovery.

Hospice and Euthanasia
Saying goodbye to a long-time friend is painful. We work with clients to ensure their pet’s comfort and dignity. Services include taking care of the remains as directed by the client. We work with Southeastern Pet Cremation to ensure that the highest level of service is achieved and that our clients have many options available to them.
