Your Pet Matters

When you’re not feeling well you call the doctor. When your pet is sick talk to our doctor.

From wellness and prevention to diet and exercise, Dr. T. will use his veterinarian experience and knowledge to provide you and your family with the best medical advice, cutting edge medicinal techniques, natural remedies and alternative therapies to keep your dog’s tail wagging and your cat purring.
