A Lifetime of Health
We strive to provide a lifetime of care and health for your pet. From our first visit with a new pet parent, we arm you with the tools and knowledge to make you a confident and supported owner. Here at Good Shepherd Veterinary Hospital, we provide wellness exams, screening tests and diagnostics to dogs, cats, small mammals, birds, and other exotics.
Our new pet exams include spay and neuter consultation, information about parasite prevention, vaccinations and deworming medications, nutrition and behavior advice, tips for establishing rules and environments, and checks for overall health. For new puppies and kittens, we recommend scheduling a few visits 3-4 weeks apart so we can help you establish rapport with your dog or cat and ensure a smooth inclusion into your family lifestyle.

Are you traveling with your pet?
Pets require special paperwork to travel, especially when flying or traveling internationally. Different countries have their own requirements when permitting animals to cross their borders. Dr. Miller is accredited through the USDA APHIS National Veterinary Accreditation Program (NVAP) to perform these required examinations and testing and to sign your pet’s health certificate for travel. It is very important that this paperwork be completed correctly and in a timely manner. If you know that you will be traveling with your pet soon, call Good Shepherd Veterinary Hospital right away to make an appointment for a health certificate!
