I hand pick our receptionists, veterinary assistants and licensed technicians with three qualities in mind: friendliness, compassion and medical skill.

Our clients expect–and deserve–a happy, helpful staff every time they visit. There are no “Debbie Downers” here … just an empathetic team who’ll do everything they can to get you and your pets taken care of efficiently!

A team of positive people

We go out of our way to meet your expectations by:

  • Making sure we get your and your pet’s name correct
  • Providing estimates for services before they’re rendered
  • Giving you treatment options to match your budget
  • Doing what we say we’ll do (we’ll call you back when we said we would!)

And if we make a mistake (hey–it happens to all of us), we’ll do everything in our power to make it right.
