If you think that using a pilling device or "Pill Gun" will help with giving your pet their medication, call and let us know. A pill gun is a long plastic tube with a plunger and a rubber end to hold the pill. Holding the pill gun like a syringe, you can administer the capsule or tablet without puting your fingers in the pet's mouth. Click here and scroll down to find a video on using a pilling device.

      Dr.Clark is always a pleasure to see! He treats our Lola with so much love and respect. English Bulldogs are a particularly special breed with many specific medical ailments, and I believe he truly understands her and the breed itself. He never rushes us, and always answers all of our questions! One of the best Vetenarian Doctors we have ever had and we always recommend him to everyone. Also, the staff there is always super friendly and loves to see Lola :-) Thank you!!
