Bad breath is more than just a nuisance to you. It's an indication that your pet's teeth need attention. Plaque and tartar buildup can cause oral diseases and even problems with the heart and other major organs. We recommend dental visits every 12 months.

Geriatric Medicine

Beginning at around age 7, your pet enters his/her senior years. Often, pets begin to develop diseases common to their senior human counterparts, such as diabetes, heart disease, endocrine disease and cancer. These diseases can go unnoticed in their early stages; therefore, preventative health care is very important. Together, we can help your pet live a healthier, happier, longer life.

Emergencies, After Hours & Weekends

Emergencies during office hours are seen immediately. However, we are closed on the weekends and do not have a relief veterinarian to see patients after hours. We urge weekend and after hour emergencies to contact Princeton Animal Care Center @ 304-425-7387


Is your pet on prescription medications? Medications can be administered to your pet by trained staff members, if supplied. There is a small daily fee for administering these medicines. Any changes in your pet’s behavior will be immediately reported to the Doctor. Medical treatment will be started to insure the health of your pet until you return. We ask that you supply an emergency contact number where you can be reached if medical treatment is needed for your animal while it is in our care. However, if you cannot be contacted we will provide to your pet whatever treatment is needed. You are responsible for all charges incurred from your pet’s stay.


What would you do if you lost your pet? Something we don’t like to think about but need to have a plan for in advance. That’s why we offer microchipping. Microchips are inserted under the skin and is programmed with your pet’s individual id number.  The chip is about the same size as a grain of rice. 



We strongly recommend that dogs are tested for heartworm disease and other tick-borne infections/diseases yearly. Ticks are expanding their range. Because of this we are seeing an increase in Lyme disease in dogs, and other tick-borne diseases. We have had many who have tested positive just since January. It is as simple as a test and 2 boosters to prevent this disease. Free NexGard flea/tick preventative with appointment. Please call us for more details! 304-466-0251
