When your pet boards with us, it gets the same level of care that our hospitalized patients get. Boarding at our practice is an advantage over other boarding facilities, because our staff knows your pet and its medical history. If your pet needs special attention or medication it will be done.
Our staff members have a higher level of training and experience that can be obtained only by working at a veterinary hospital. This means that even subtle changes in your pet will be recognized. This is important because pets can’t always tell us what’s wrong. These signs can be easily missed by a big boarding facility that may have inexperienced staff. Boarding at a veterinary hospital allows your pet immediate access to a veterinarian, even on weekends.

How reliable are Internet Pharmacies? There are major differences between purchasing products from a Veterinary Hospital and Internet Pharmacies. First, is the quality of your pet’s medication.

Owners line up with their pets, […]

I was discussing our practice’s anesthetic and surgical protocol with two pet owners, and they where surprised the level of care their pet receives. Though, they had been taking their pets to Veterinarians for many years, they had no idea that Veterinary practices could be so very different in their approach. Unfortunately, veterinary patient care […]
