Read What Our Clients Say

    Has always given my pets the care an attention I feel they need & deserve. Would recommend.

    Malaurie S.

    Our dog developed a hematoma on one of his ears. Our previous vet didn't had appointments available for six days. A call to the Pet Health Center solved the problem. A same day visit, surgery and an overnight stay resolved the problem. Everyone we encountered showed care and sensitivity toward our dog and us. As a result we are returning to the Pet Health Center for regular dog care.

    William B.

    I am encouraged by Dr. T! He is a survivor. His staff is incredible! I appreciate his explanations for a procedure or treatment! He is a friend of many organizations that promote pet & human health.

    Kimberly S.
