All members of our practice pledge to collaborate with our collective skill and knowledge, engage in a respectful, trusting, and relaxed environment, and communicate with humor, fun, passion, and honesty. We vow to make a commitment to our community, you, and your pets, and always strive for excellence.

Regular pet check-ups are the best way to head off problems before they become serious.

PUPPY AND KITTEN CARE

Exams, vaccinations, tests and counseling on pet behavior are essential to health and development.

Dogs and cats face greater health issues as they age, just like people. We work to keep your pet healthy and active over the full span of their lives.

ACUPUNCTURE AND PAIN MANAGEMENT

We can work with you to develop a pain management program that works for you and your pet. Dr. Karen Christopherson, DVM CVA visits the clinic to perform acupuncture, while all of our doctors are familiar with safely using supplements and medications to alleviate both chronic and acute pain.
