Happy First Birthday Tommy!!
Dr. Rita Wallis
We hope everyone had wonderful holidays and that you're enjoying our mild (so far) winter!
We had a busy close to 2017 and start to 2018 beginning with a visit in December from Dr. Rita Wallis from Arizona. Dr. Wallis and her husband Alex are ready to leave the heat and have been interested in relocating to this area for awhile now so when they heard we were in need of a vet they made the trip to take a look. They liked what they saw and are in the process of relocating now! They're hoping to be settled and ready to start seeing patients sometime in March. Watch for updates and more info on Dr. Wallis in the near future!
Dr. Lehfeldt will be here for a few days next week, we have limited appointments available Thurs 1/18 and Fri 1/19 and will be holding a dental clinic on Sat 1/20. Our normal dental special held in February for National Veterinary Dental Month will apply to the clinic on the 20th and will carry over into March, date TBD.
Prices for the special are an additional 10% off of our already discounted clinic prices, or $90 plus sedation and wellness exam. (Regular float price is $133 and clinic price is $100 plus sedation & exam)
