Keeping Your Pets Healthy

The Veterinarian

Dr. Cowing will be the veterinarian to diagnose, treat and care for your pet. If needed, we also call in board certified veterinary professionals that specialize in a particular area of veterinary medicine such as radiology or surgery.

Medicine / Laboratory

Animal Cove has a full range of in-house laboratory and testing equipment. We also have access to outside laboratory testing in case further diagnostics are necessary.

Digital Radiography

Digital radiography allows the veterinarian to get very high quality digital images in far less time than it would take to get the same views using traditional film.
