Our Wellness programs are designed specifically for your pet and include: Comprehensive physical exam; internal parasite testing; heartworm and flea control; vaccination program; spay and neuter package; and specialized blood tests for all life stages.
Dental RadiologyRegular professional cleaning is important to maintaining your pet’s teeth. We use modern and safe ultrasound to clean each tooth thoroughly – above and below the gum line. Dental technicians polish teeth to create a smooth, lustrous tooth surface more resistant to plaque buildup. Fluoride treatments help strengthen enamel and reduce tooth sensitivity. Advanced dental care is available, including root canals, caps and braces. We also provide digital dental x-ray technology when needed to evaluate the best course of treatment.
MicrochippingMicrochips have helped reunite thousands of pets with their families. We offer the most widely used microchip products to increase the chances of a safe recovery.

Pain ManagementDr. Tom Kuhn grew up as part of a military family and lived in the southeastern and western parts of America during his youth. His father was a veterinarian who graduated from the University of Washington, receiving his DVM degree from Washington State University as well as a Masters of Public Health from UC Berkeley. The family influence was a spark for Dr. Kuhn to pursue his veterinary medical studies. He earned his Bachelor’s degree in chemistry and graduated from the University of Georgia, College of Veterinary Medicine with high honors. Dr. Kuhn is married to Dr. Margaret Kuhn and they have three children. The family is active in church and school related activities. In his daily clinical practice Dr. Kuhn has a special interest and advanced training in ultrasonography, knee surgery, dentistry, and pain management. Outside of practice his interests are water sports, reading, hiking and of course, Clover, his canine companion. Clover has since passed and she was the guiding force for the non-profit Clover’s Care, a funding source for pets in need. Dr. Kuhn now has a grand-dog Bear. Bear is so lucky! Dr. Kuhn received the prestigious award 2013 North Carolina Veterinarian of the Year. Pictured with him is Tank, the Animal Hospital East community kitty. Tank tries to be good most of the time.
