We really do care!
Choosing the right veterinarian can be one of the most important things you can do for your pet. Although treatments like vaccines and spays/neuters can seem like a commodity, individualized treatment can make a real difference for you and your pet. (Small things never develop into big things if they are addressed early!) And less stress at the visit is better also. We at Guardian Animal Medical Center welcome the opportunity to show you the difference. We take the time to answer your questions and teach what you need to know. If they’re special to you, they’re important to us! Don’t forget to ask for a new client tour and learn about our services that help your pet live a long, happy life!

However, if your kitten or cat hasn’t yet been taught bathroom etiquette, training her should be a relatively simple process. ... Read More
