Care for your pets like they're our own

Our team is like family, and every member of our team looks forward to coming in every day to make a difference in the life of a furchild – nothing is more important than seeing your pet feeling it’s best.

While our practice has grown substantially over the years, we still maintain a cozy, community feel, and we greatly appreciate the relationships we have the honor of building with our patients and clients.

“I have been a client of SCAH for over 20 years. I would not go anywhere else. They have always taken care of my pets from day one until the end of their days. I am grateful that they will try their best to get my pet in to be seen.
