We drive 40 min across town to take our pets here, because Dr Stephenson & Dr Arvin are top notch vets and wonderful people. They have our complete confidence. Cannot recommend them highly enough.

Kym K.

I’ve been taking my pets here for over 30 years. Even my pet duck and a baby lamb I was caring for until a farm could be found to take the newborn.

Becky D.

I have two dogs that go to this clinic. The staff is so friendly. Compared to their close competition their prices are almost half. I switched due to their flexibility in schedule, cost, friendliness, and overall care. As long as I live within driving distance, I will always use this clinic! Cannot give them more love!
