One year ago, our cat Jack fell 80 feet from our apartment balcony and fractured his spine along with most of the bones in both of his back feet. Joe and I wanted to send you all an update and some pictures as a thank you for all that you did for us and Jack.

To help our clients to better cope financially with these situations, we offer Care Credit as a short-term solution. You can apply through our office or on line prior to arrival.

ASCPA is a perfect resource for all those harmful and unusual items your pet may come in contact with or ingest. If you seek advice from the poison control hotline, and they advise medical treatment, please retain your case number so your veterinarian can reference the case with no further charge to our clients.
