Our appointment book is computerized, which allows us to efficiently make appointments for you and your pet. We will attempt to accommodate all requests to the best of our ability. Emergencies are accepted anytime our clinic is open. If you feel you have an emergency with your pet, please call us or come in immediately. If possible it is best to call before coming in so that a staff member can advise you on your particular emergency.

Life Long Compassionate Medicine and Preventative Care

Dr. Ryan Lorber has a passion for seeing and treating companion pets at all life stages.  He will evaluate your furry family member from nose to tail and make appropriate recommendations based on his complete physical exam.  From preventative surgical procedures like spaying and neutering to annual lab work to catch and treat conditions early, we do it all.  We look forward to treating your pet at every life stage.

Dr. Lorber has a special passion for Veterinary Dentistry.  Here at Helix Pet Hospital we offer a complete oral health assessment.  All routine cleanings and indicated dental procedures include full mouth digital dental radiography and complete probing and charting of your pet's mouth.  After your pet's oral health has been completely assessed a cleaning will include scaling, curettage, polishing and fluoride treatment.  We also spend time after each procedure educating you on your pet's oral health and what can be done to prevent future problems.

Types of Pets Seen

The Helix Pet Hospital cares for dogs and cats.  We pride ourselves on doing the best to make both our canine and feline patients; comfortable.  With a host of different personalities, feelings and health concerns we try to cater to each individual pet's unique needs.
