How do you picture your local veterinarian?

lobbyWe are changing common expectations with a higher level of care. In health, sickness, and times of crisis, we have countless strengths. We use lifecycle planning, wellness care, quality diets and modern technology, in addition to the usual preventive and curative medicine, to provide a more holistic approach. Our goal is the same as yours — to help you keep your pet healthy and happy for as long as possible!

Wellness Care

We consider many factors during a wellness exam including oral health, special dietary needs and nutritional supplementation, weight management, early detection laboratory testing, and more. For dogs, cats, and ferrets, vaccines are an important part of wellness care and we assess exposure and risk levels individually for each pet. We offer many additional services such as microchipping your pet, performing a Genetic Health Analysis to determine your dog’s exact heritage, taking care of your birds’ grooming needs and much more.

Dental Care

The best and ultimate care for your pet’s teeth is a dental cleaning and assessment. We are aware now, more than ever, that dental health affects your pet’s overall wellness in many ways. Drs. Ahlgrim, Illick and the staff veterinary nurses have received extensive additional training on preventative dental health, diagnosis, radiography and surgery to provide quality dental care for your dog or cat. GoldenView Veterinary Hospital has the most up-to-date equipment, including dental radiology, ultrasonic scaler and dental polisher. All dental procedures are performed with safe anesthesia, high tech monitoring and supportive care. An oral health assessment can be scheduled free of charge with one of our veterinary nurses!

Acute Care

While we wish we never had to see patients in distress, many appointments are made because the pet has a specific problem that needs attention. We routinely call in specialists, such as ultrasound experts and board certified surgeons, when necessary for specialized, advanced care. We consult with and refer patients to numerous other specialists, too. Did you know that local specialists are available for heart, lung, brain, skin, eye and cancer care consultation?

We know and use all of our resources to deliver an incredibly high standard of care for YOUR pet.


Laser Therapy

Class IV Laser Therapy is used to ease pain and improve mobility without the use of drugs or surgery. At GoldenView Veterinary Hospital, we use the therapy laser to help treat chronic conditions such as arthritis, gingivitis and skin problems. Acute conditions including ear infections, traumatic wounds, inflammation of the bladder and intervertebral disk disease will also respond to laser treatments. A laser treatment following a surgical or dental procedure will promote quicker healing. For more information on the many uses of laser therapy, see
