about

At Grand Valley Animal Hospital our practice is grounded in science, with the ability to listen because no one knows your pet better than you do. Our mission is to maintain an exceptional team and to provide comprehensive, state-of-the-art care in a compassionate environment. We believe that by using science, coupled with common sense and a team approach, we can improve the bond between you and your pet.

"I recognize that every client has a different level of experience, every pet a different level of need – and many clients have done their own research. I am trained in science, medicine, surgery and nutrition, but I also know that alternative options may fit your pet's individual need and will discuss these options with you. I am committed to continued education and have a keen interest in orthopedic and reproductive services, and will be expanding these areas in the future."
