Dr. Mike knows that in today’s busy world, it can be hard to make the time to get your beloved pets into the vet, and strives to remain on schedule (because no one likes waiting at the doctor’s office), while still giving each pet the time and attention they need. He will also discuss treatment options so that educated decisions can be made in the care of your pet that also fit your budget.
