To help your pet live a healthy and vibrant life, wellness care is essential. From thorough annual exams to blood screenings, routine health care not only keeps your pet in excellent shape—it also helps us detect concerns, such as dental disease and heart disease, before they become more serious problems. That's why wellness care is also known as "preventative care."

Of course, every pet is unique, with its own distinctive set of health care needs. While your brand new puppy may require nutritional counseling, vaccines and parasite testing, your 12-year-old dog might benefit from semiannual exams, diagnostic screening and arthritis management.

At Jonesville Animal Hospital, we never take a "one-size-fits-all" approach. We carefully examine your pet, take time to listen to your concerns and then develop a wellness care program tailored specifically for your pet. We even customize vaccine choices based on your pet's particular lifestyle.

Jonesville Animal Hospital offers the following wellness care services:

• Annual or Semiannual examinations
• Vaccinations
• Blood screening
• Diagnostic Imaging
• Dental care
• Microchipping
• Nutritional and behavioral counseling
• Puppy and kitten care
• Senior pet care
• Parasite prevention (Fleas, ticks and heartworms)

Together, we'll create a winning wellness program that will ensure a long, healthy and happy life for the animals you love. Contact us today to learn more about our wellness care services or to schedule an appointment.


We love our pets as cherished family members and we do everything we can to keep them happy and healthy. Preventing and managing their pain is one of the greatest concerns for many pet owners.

Whether your pet is being treated for a soft tissue injury or for chronic pain from arthritis, Laser Therapy is a great treatment option for providing pain relief and accelerating healing. Laser Therapy works by emitting light waves that penetrate deep into the tissue to stimulate cellular activity, resulting in decreased swelling and pain, increased circulation, and improved healing. Since Therapeutic Laser Therapy is a drug free, non-invasive treatment, it is even safe for those pets for which non-steroidal anti- inflammatory medications must be used cautiously such as cats and geriatric pets.

The laser treatment is delivered through a comforting massage ball. Combined with the slight warmth of the laser, your pet will experience a very relaxing therapeutic treatment.

Laser Therapy is commonly used to treat acute and chronic painful conditions such as arthritis, back pain, ligament sprains, and various types of wounds. It can even be used post operatively to reduce post surgical pain and improve healing.

If you are looking for a safe, drug free alternative to managing your pet’s pain, please call us to find out how Laser Therapy can help your pet live a happier and more comfortable life.

Dental care is another critical component in your pet's wellness plan. Just like people, pets require regular dental visits to keep their teeth clean and healthy. As plaque builds up on your pet's teeth and hardens into tartar, it can lead to gingivitis—a disease that causes bad breath and reddened gums. If left untreated, gingivitis can eventually develop into periodontal disease, a dangerous infection that can lead to serious health conditions, such as heart and kidney disease.

That's why we recommend regular dental cleanings to maintain your pet's teeth and overall health. Jonesville Animal Hospital provides comprehensive dental services including:

•    Dental cleanings
•    Dental Radiology
•    Tooth extractions
•    Routine Oral surgery

As part of our comprehensive dental care plan, we perform full mouth x-rays of your pet's teeth with every dental cleaning. This allows our veterinarians to inspect areas of your pet's teeth that cannot be seen with the naked eye. Dental radiology is extremely important because it helps us diagnose hidden problems, determine if tooth extractions are necessary and treat dental disease.

Our doctors will also discuss how you can care for your pet's teeth at home. When you commit to a home dental care routine with your dog or cat, you can often reduce the frequency of professional cleanings and improve your pet's overall health.

If you have questions or concerns about your pet's dental health, or the dental procedure, please feel free to give us a call.

Whether your kitten needs to be spayed or neutered or your dog requires a growth removal, surgery can be a scary undertaking for a pet owner. When you choose Jonesville Animal Hospital, you’ll take comfort in knowing that your pet is in a loving environment with familiar people who truly care about him or her. Our experienced doctors and staff offer attentive nursing care and plenty of TLC to your pet before, during and after the surgery.

Jonesville Animal Hospital’s skilled veterinarians perform a variety of surgical procedures right here in our state-of-the-art medical center. All of our patients receive the latest in surgical monitoring, pain management, and high-quality post-operative care. When your pet requires the expertise of a board certified surgeon for advanced procedures, we can refer you to a nearby specialty hospital. Our goal is to make sure your pet receives the best possible treatment and care.

If you have questions about our surgical services, contact us today for more information.

Jonesville Animal Hospital not only provides routine veterinary care, we are also staffed and equipped to handle critically ill patients.  When your pet needs hospitalization due to trauma or illness, we can provide the necessary care for him or her right here in our fully equipped medical facility. While closely monitoring your hospitalized pet and providing treatment, our skilled doctors and technicians also offer him or her compassionate care in a loving environment.

As pet owners ourselves, we understand just how upsetting it can be when your pet becomes ill and cannot be at home with you. Though it may be necessary for your pet to stay in our hospital so we can observe and correctly diagnose and treat him or her, you can rest assured that your pet is in capable, caring hands. At Jonesville Animal Hospital, we always have your pet’s best interest at heart.

If your pet requires specialized medical care, we work closely with board certified veterinary specialists. When your pet’s condition requires advanced medical treatment, we can refer you to a veterinary specialist for further evaluation.  It is our goal to provide you with the best possible resources for the animals you love.

If you have questions about our hospitalization services, please feel free to contact us.

Jonesville Animal Hospital is fully equipped with cutting-edge laboratory and imaging technologies. These valuable tools help us diagnose sick pets and screen healthy ones.

When your pet is sick, we may recommend blood testing, x-rays or an ultrasound to properly diagnose him or her.  These high-tech services are not only valuable for sick pets —they can also benefit healthy pets.  These technologies allow us to screen healthy animals for potential problems, such as heart disease or hip dysplasia.

We offer the following screening and diagnostic services:  

• Full in-house laboratory: We can provide immediate diagnostic blood work, including chemistries, CBC’s and screening tests for specific diseases.  We use an outside lab for additional diagnostic services.

X-rays: Our hospital is fully equipped with the latest digital X-ray technology to diagnose an illness or orthopedic problem.

• Ultrasounds: To ensure your pet receives the best possible treatment, we utilize the services of a skilled, board-certified radiologist to perform all of our in-house ultrasounds. This non-invasive technology uses sound waves to painlessly examine your pet’s internal organs.

• OFA and PennHIP x-rays: In addition to the traditional OFA hip x-rays, we also offer the PennHIP method of evaluating for hip dysplasia. Jonesville Animal Hospital's Dr. Vliet is PennHIP certified and uses this specialized procedure to evaluate puppies as young as 4 months old.
