Hello, this is Dr. Oesterling. I purchased an existing practice in 2009, renamed it, and started over. My philosophy has been the foundation for our Veterinary Center. We are different from other practices because we are smaller, less rushed, and we only offer medical services. (no boarding or grooming). We take our time with each client. Please be prepared to spend 45 minutes to one hour for your first visit. We hope to see you soon.
We vaccinate pets according to lifestyle and age. Vaccines do protect our pets from disease, but not every pet needs every vaccination. For example, a twelve year-old indoor cat does not need a vaccine for Feline Leukemia. This is a kitten disease and older, indoor cats are not at risk.
We are flexible in our approach to treatment. In many cases there are different alternatives for a medical issue. If appropriate, the veterinarians at our center will discuss treatment options available to suit you and your pet’s needs.
Cats are our passion! Yes, we love dogs just as much, but Dr. O did four years in feline practice and she has carried that ‘mind set” with her. A separate cat room and a “Feliway” scented cloth before your cat’s exam will help keep them calm.
A holistic approach leads to better preventative care. During most visits we review diet/nutrition, exercise, and behavior to address possible issues that you may not have been aware of.
Every pet owner will have their questions answered before they leave. Additionally, we call the next day after every procedure to check on your pet. Personalized service is our goal.
