Our practice focuses on a holistic approach to veterinary medicine. Every patient is a unique individual with differing needs regarding vaccination, yearly testing, and modality of treatment.  At your pet's annual exam, we will discuss their history, lifestyle, and diet before determining their plan for health and wellness.

\Dr. Lori Blankenship will check the health of your pet from head to tail

Bring in any medical history you have of your pet when you come to our vet clinic.  Keeping a journal of your pet's health throughout his or her life, including behavioral shifts is very helpful in determining a plan for your pet.  If you have something like this, share it with our team.  If not, let us know everything that you think will be important.  Dr. Blankenship can still work with whatever information you have.
