Immunization and Wellness Care

We aim to prevent illness through preventative care whenever possible. Our wellness recommendations include an annual comprehensive physical exam with vaccinations, testing for internal parasites, control of fleas, ticks, and heartworms, and age-appropriate body function screening through blood tests.


Microchips have helped reunite over a million pets with their families. We offer the most widely used microchip products to increase the chances of a safe recovery.

Dental Care

Regular professional cleaning is important to maintaining your pet’s teeth. We use modern and safe ultrasound to clean each tooth thoroughly – above and below the gum line. Dental technicians polish teeth to create a smooth, lustrous tooth surface more resistant to plaque buildup.


We offer the safest, most advanced anesthetic and surgical techniques in order to provide your pet the best care possible. Pre-surgical blood profiles, fluid therapy, and pain medications are available and all patients are carefully monitored with the utmost concern for their safety and comfort.  You can feel confident that your pet is given the best surgical care possible at Carter Pet Hospital.

Pain Management

Animals feel pain and discomfort under the same circumstances as people do. We know that recognizing and alleviating pain in animals is the essence of good patient care.

Internal Medicine

We cover all areas of internal medicine, including cardiology, ophthalmology, neurology, dermatology, gastroenterology, oncology, endocrinology, orthopedic surgery and others.


We stock a wide range of the best veterinary drugs in the animal healthcare field.

Nutritional Counseling

Some pets require special food, and all pets benefit from a balanced diet. Our trained and certified staff is available to help you choose the right diet for your pet to keep him or her happy, healthy and active.


Radiographs – or x-rays – help our veterinarians evaluate musculoskeletal, cardiovascular (cardiopulmonary), gastrointestinal, reproductive, and urinary systems.

Euthanasia and Cremation Services

Saying goodbye to a long-time friend is painful. We work with clients to ensure their pet’s comfort and dignity. Cremation services are available.

Laser Therapy

Laser therapy is a revolutionary treatment that utilizes advanced laser technology to promote healing and alleviate various conditions. This non-invasive and drug-free therapy involves the precise delivery of laser light to targeted areas, penetrating deep into the tissue to stimulate cellular regeneration and reduce inflammation. It can effectively manage pain, accelerate wound healing, improve mobility, and enhance overall well-being in dogs and cats. Laser therapy is safe, painless, and suitable for pets of all sizes and species. With its proven benefits and compassionate approach, laser therapy offers a holistic and effective solution for improving the health and quality of life of our pets.
