WE EXTEND A WARM WELCOME TO ALL PETS AND THEIR PET PARENTS.
Our Mission is to provide excellent small animal treatment and diagnostic care for your pet, and we strive to provide pet-family-centered care where your pet can feel comforted - through the presence of their family in an open-hospital setting - and achieve optimal health.
The medical science is constantly changing, and our veterinarians and RVTs are committed to staying current with the latest developments, skills, and new technologies in the field of veterinary science. Our registered veterinary technicians and veterinarians attend monthly continuing education seminars, yearly multiple day conferences for general practice, and emergency and critical care professionals.
In addition, Dr. Frits attends “veterinarian wet labs”, but also week-long hands-on training for veterinary professionals at the state-of-the-art Oquendo Centre in Las Vegas in order to merge his many years of experience with the latest developments in veterinary science.
We all have a genuine passion for helping pets, and our team of health care professionals will treat them with kindness and patience when they are away from the comfort of your home. The well-being of your pet always comes first, and we will make every effort to make a compassionate difference in the lives of you and your pet.
We are excited to meet you and your pet family members!
