Best Friends Deserve the Best

We’ve all heard the phrase ‘dogs are man’s best friend.’ To love a pet like they’re members of the family is natural and brings such joy. Funny, it actually makes us all more human. Your best friend deserves a complete animal hospital which includes state-of-the-art, on-site technology and lab facilities with caring veterinarians and staff. It just feels right. Sometimes, knowing a bit more and doing a bit more can make a lifetime of difference. At The Country Vet, people have found the most compassionate doctors for over 33 years with one simple but vital goal – the health and happiness of your pet.

Comprehensive Physical Exams

Unlike many veterinary hospitals whose appointment slots are 10 to 15 minutes, our appointments are booked out every 30 minutes. In this 30-minute appointment, the doctor will get a thorough history regarding your pet’s health and behavior and perform a comprehensive physical examination. Our longer appointments allow ample time to answer most (if not all) of your questions.
