Our Story


Our new facility has been uniquely designed with distinctive features to help us meet each patient's individual needs. 

Walk into a spacious and comfortable main lobby intentionally created to make you and your pet feel welcome and at home.


A designated cat-only waiting room insures that our feline friends may avoid contact with dogs for a reduced stress ER visit.   

10 exam rooms to provide a more efficient and timely emergency visit for your pet.  Exam rooms for cats are separated from dogs to minimize unfamiliar odors that might put your pet ill at ease.   

Our centrally located treatment area gives our expert team an unobstructed view of each hospitalization ward, both surgical suites and the entire treatment area simultaneously.  The open design permits us to treat and handle multiple animals while preventing them from coming into close proximity with other animals.
