Readers' Choice: The best in medicine

WOW!  We have the best pet families!  We moved up to Second Place this year and couldn't have done it without your support.

A huge "Thank you!" for your votes. 

We are grateful to care for such gracious pet families!

And now, a few notes about our services...

Dr. Bortell has been busy offering Traditional Chinese Veterinary Medicine techniques!  If you are interested in learning more, schedule a TCVM Consultation and see if your pet can benefit from Herbal Medicine or Acupuncture Treatments.

Dr Heiden is taking appointments for Chiropractic treatments for both dogs and cats.  Chiropractic is beneficial as a stand-alone treatment or when used with acupuncture and laser therapies.

We also offer Laser Therapy treatments for both dogs and cats.  We are seeing good results when Laser, Acupuncture and Chiropractic are part of the treatment plan.

And, we now offer an in-house, full-service ultrasound service - ask us!


We have been tracking the progress of the canine influenza.  The latest reports show this to be a newer strain of influenza (H3N2) that can potentially infect both dogs and cats.  We encourage you to get your dog vaccinated if your dog will be boarding, grooming or going to the local dog parks. Check with the facility to see what they recommend.

Give us a call if you have concerns or questions.  309.662.3633.
