Note on Prescription Refills

Please call ahead with prescription refills, including heartworm, flea and tick products, so we can have time to double check everything with the doctor for accuracy.
Stopping by for prescriptions is much harder and will potentially cause a delay.

Compassion/Fear Free Pet Handling

Some pets hate going to the veterinarian and act accordingly. We know that most pets are scared, not mean.

The “Fear Free” Certification Program teaches special handling methods to calm the pet.

Using these techniques leads to fewer anxiety triggers, less stress, and a better experience for everyone- andyour pet.

Dr. Smith is “Fear Free” Certified and our staff utilizes as many "Fear Free" handling methods.

We Treat Clients as Partners

We understand that clients want to be part of the decision making process.

So our veterinarians try to explain things in terms that you can understand. We think this sets us apart from other veterinary hospitals.

During diagnosis we explain why we recommend certain tests and their potential value.

Then we explain what the test results mean, and we discuss treatment options.

Client communication at each step along the way enables us to make decisions together.

We Have the Best Signs!
