Welcome! Thank you for selecting our veterinary clinic, where the care of your pet is our primary concern. We hope you will find our facility clean and efficient. Our staff will do their best to make you and your pet feel welcome and comfortable. We want our clients to feel that we are receptive and responsive to their needs and that we will spend the necessary time with them and their pet to listen, understand, and correct their problems.


Some conditions will require an extensive amount of time and tests, while others will be brief with direct and immediate results. In any situation, we will endeavor to explain reasons for special tests, the possible outcome, and an estimate of the costs involved. If any questions arise, always feel comfortable to request more information.


We believe in offering you and your pet the best attention and care available, because we know that your pets are a special part of your family and they deserve to be treated with love, kindness, and respect.
