We are your “partner in pet care,” and we’re happy to provide support and information enabling you to give your pet the best possible care at home, including proper nutrition, shelter, exercise and plenty of “T.L.C.”

Good communication between doctor and owner is a very important part of pet care, so we encourage you to ask us questions about the treatment we give your animal. We promise to give you the information you need to make well informed decisions regarding your pet’s health, and to set your mind at ease.
