Services Offered at Cherry Knolls Veterinary Clinic

We strive to provide all the care your pet could need at one convenient location for your convenience and your pet's safety.

Comprehensive Exams – The vet will perform a full check up on your pet including the heart, lungs, eyes, ears, gums, from snout to tail and anything in between. These exams occur during each yearly appointment and at vaccination appointments. We also provide specialized exams for puppies and kittens that include vaccines. 

Parasite Prevention - Deworming, fecal exams, and medication administration for parasites are all a part of having a healthy pet. 

Dental Care - We offer dental services to make sure that your pet has a happy, infection free and pain-free life. 

Surgery - We offer a variety of surgical procedures, on site. Including spaying, neutering, wound repairs, and many other common pet surgeries. 

Stem Cell Therapy -This treatment uses your pets stem cells to treat osteoarthritis and other conditions in aging dogs. Your pet can have increased mobility and less pain with this technology, using their own cells. 

Laser Therapy - This therapy uses red and infrared lasers over the injured or pained areas to increase healing and reduce pain. It  improves circulation and reduces inflammation and is effective for many pet conditions 

PRP Therapy - Platelet Rich Plasma therapy is an effective way to use your pet's own blood to help them recover from orthopedic conditions and osteoarthritis. We offer it to help your aging or injured pet.
