Experienced Staff

Led by Dr. Ginger Garlie, our team of veterinarians works alongside our qualified techs to give your pet the best quality of care. Doctors focus in a specific area of care like dentistry, small animals, surgery, chiropractic and acupuncture, or education. If your pet is sick, our in-house ultrasound, radiology, endoscopy and lab services are available to help swiftly diagnose and treat the problem. Also, if one of our experienced vets can’t meet your pet’s needs, we have a network of visiting specialists who come treat patients right here in our clinic.
