All Services

Examinations & Wellness Care

There is no substitute for a hands-on examination with a qualified veterinarian that you trust.
In order to help your pet live a longer, healthier life, yearly check-ups for your pet along with regular vaccinations, dental exams, and annual screenings are highly recommended.

Surgery

Our state-of-the-art surgical suite allows us to perform many types of surgeries. Gas anesthesia, heart and lung monitors, and IV fluids are used during all surgeries. We offer optional laser surgery for many procedures, which reduces pain and inflammation for your pet. We believe in total pain management before, during, and after surgery so that your pet is comfortable at all times.

Laser Therapy

Laser therapy is used to treat a variety of conditions such as arthritis, post-surgery pain, wounds, and infection in a noninvasive, pain-free way. Laser therapy is a non-drug way to stimulate the body to heal from within.  Improvement is usually noticeable within hours depending on your pet’s response and condition.

Radiology

X-rays can be a very useful tool in the diagnostic work-up for a sick or painful pet. All digital images are stored electronically, making transferring medical records as efficiently as possible.

Ultrasound

Ultrasound can be an extremely important diagnostic tool. Sometimes a cardiac or abdominal ultrasound can give us important information to pinpoint your pet’s illness and identify the appropriate course of treatment.  If your pet needs an ultrasound, we have an ultrasound specialist that comes to our clinic as needed.

We offer an in-house point of care ultrasound to provide immediate information about your pet in the urgent or critical setting and to assist in the collection of laboratory samples such as urine and chest or abdominal fluid.

Behavior/Dietary Counseling

Our staff can provide advice regarding the correction of problems such as excessive barking, chewing, spraying, scratching, digging, house soiling, separation anxiety, and aggression. Many medical conditions can be treated or managed through your pet’s diet. Here at Burch Creek, we provide Hill’s and Royal Canin Prescription diets.

Senior Health Care

​When your pet reaches the age of 7 (5 for large breeds) they are officially senior citizens! With this milestone comes the need for 6-month exams, blood work, and x-rays. Your pet is now aging 3-4 people years every 6 months. Just as people experience changes as they get older, so do our pets. Senior exams help us identify these changes and treat conditions that could be potentially fatal, such as cancer or kidney failure.

Lab Testing, Hospitalization, and Pharmacy

Laboratory

We offer in-house laboratory testing, allowing us to promptly diagnose your pet’s condition, as well as send out laboratory testing.

Hospitalization

For sick pets, we are able to hospitalize, monitor, and provide intensive medical care as needed. Our hospital has isolation facilities for the care of infectious conditions such as parvovirus or kennel cough when necessary.

Pharmacy

Our complete in-house pharmacy is stocked with the drugs needed to facilitate your pet’s recovery. We also have an online pharmacy that offers an extended range of products and allows direct shipping to your house of your pet’s prescription food and medications.

Dentistry

Dental disease is the number one disease in cats and dogs. Our dental services include thorough dental exams, teeth cleaning and polishing, fluoride treatments, dental x-rays, tooth extractions, and oral surgery.

Pocket Pets

Dr. Sharon Klar treats a wide variety of pocket pets including ferrets, rabbits, guinea pigs, hamsters mice, and rats. Regular veterinary care is important for pocket pets too. This is the best way to catch diseases early before your pet is showing any signs of illness.
