Your Pet Matters

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

107.7 The Bronc presents the first and only pet healthcare show in Mercer County. Tune in to Your Pet Matters with Dr. Michael Tokiwa of the Animal Hospital at Kingston and Blawenburg or subscribe to their podcast.

Your other family physician, Dr. T is on-call every Saturday at 10 a.m. to discuss your pets health. 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.

Our pets are lifelong friends, don’t they deserve a lifelong wellness partner? Listen to Your Pet Matters with Dr. Michael Tokiwa of the Animal Hospital at Kingston and Blawenburg, Saturdays at 10 a.m. on 107.7 The Bronc.
