    Considering the level of sophistication and care, veterinary medicine and surgery is the greatest bargain of any medical field in the United States. Our technicians and assistants could make more money in the human medicine field but they're here because they are passionate about the care and well-being of animals. Some of our staff have been with us from the start! The next time you talk with one of our staff just remember they have your pets best interest at heart.
