Advanced Care

Progressive training and technology to provide exceptional care when your pet has unique and special needs.

I have been very proud to have Dr. Bonilla as my vet for the past three years. She has been a wonderful and caring vet for both of my beagles Mr. beau 9 and Cassie Jane 14. Thanks to her acupuncture Mr. Beau is back up and running on the beach going up stairs and doing what a beagle loves to do explore. She removed Cassie Jane’s spleen on April 6th 2015 due to cancer, she was up front and said that she could not cure the cancer but after six rounds of chemo and herbal supplements Cassie Jane as has made it to 455 days of living and enjoying life, and we look forward to many more days . So thanks Dr. Bonilla. I look forward to many more years of care for my beagles with you.

Tooth extractions. Periodontal disease. When your pet needs more than just a teeth cleaning, we have the experience and skills to help. Using state-of-the-art dental technology, including digital dental x-rays, you can be assured we will catch all dental problems occurring below the gum line.


We use the latest in digital radiography for taking full-body and dental x-rays. Faster diagnosis as x-rays are captured in seconds not minutes. Safer for your pet due to reduced radiation exposure levels. Superior detail and image quality ensures nothing will be missed.


A non-invasive and painless imaging technique that uses reflections of ultrasonic waves, or echoes, to examine internal organs.  The technique is very useful in evaluating heart conditions and identifying changes in abdominal organs.  Ultrasonography is also helpful in the diagnosis of cysts and tumors.
