Nail Trims

Traveling with your Pet

Traveling is stressful enough as it is, but the constantly changing and confusing travel rules and restrictions regarding traveling with your fur babies just seems to add even more anxiety and unnecessary stress to pet owners. If you're planning on traveling out of the country or to Hawaii with your pet in the near future, please take a look at and complete our 'Traveling with your Pet' form.

Laser Surgery

Laser surgery is considered the cutting edge of technology, with less pain, less bleeding, and less swelling. Carter Veterinary Medical Center is proud to offer laser surgery as a more precise and less traumatic alternative to traditional surgical techniques.

Electrocardiogram (EKG)

Just like in human medicine, EKG is an important component to heart-related healthcare. For pets with health problems or suspected heart conditions, we use this hospital-style diagnostic to get a more complete picture of the problem. Also, using a state-of-the-art digital link-up with Telemedicine, we can get expert interpretations and personal board-certified consultations as quickly as possible.

Full-Service Pet Pharmacy

We have a fully stocked pharmacy for your convenience, including medications for critical care, emergencies, and maintenance (such as heartworm, fleas, allergies, ear infections, etc.). We also carry a full line of prescription shampoos, conditioners, as well as foods and nutritional supplements for the special nutritional needs of your pets. Use our online Pet Pharmacy to order your everyday pet needs from the comfort of your own couch!

Therapeutic Laser Treatment

This is a great treatment for older animals. Pets with swelling in their joints and soft tissues will gain relief from this laser that dramatically reduces pain caused by the pressure. The treatment works by the application of red and infrared light over an area that needs improvement or healing. Treatments last 3 to 6 minutes per site and require no anesthesia. Your pet will be very comfortable as this laser produces only slight warmth in the inflamed tissue.

Dental Care

Domestic pets enjoy veterinary care that includes regular oral exams and teeth cleaning, preventative measures that allow for disease prevention and an extended life. We provide dental examinations, ultrasonic cleaning, as well as diagnostics. Preventing health problems can be as simple as providing the proper dental care.

Behavioral Training

Our facility has joined forces with the nationally recognized dog training program My K9 Behaves. This comprehensive and complete training curriculum is user-friendly, and has been proven time and again to successfully curtail common behavioral problems, as well as empower pet owners to train their furry loved ones with complete confidence. This program covers a multitude of topics, including puppy training, potty training, and an array of other behavioral issues.
