Companion Stories

I use Care First whenever my dog needs extensive testing (an ultrasound, for instance). They have the equipment on site so they are the most flexible for scheduling.


Love love love Dr. Joe and his team. Such wonderful people! They have cared for our furry family members for nearly 25 years. Still the BEST vet in the area. Puppers are there right now for a much needed spa day. Dr Wages is one of the most amazing humans out there! She is never too busy to answer questions, or give advice. THANK YOU!!!


Can't say enough good things about this place. Amazing staff, clean office, quick to help.


I love the way they take care of my babies. They seem to genuinely care for the wellbeing of their patients. Would recommend to anyone. Thank you for all you do.


They have been our vet for 27 years. We love them and they love our fur babies. Great staff and excellent doctors.
