"I was impressed with the level of professionalism of the staff from the point of admitting my pet to the clinic to the point of the medical consult and treatment planning that involved a well balanced holistic and medical approach toward my pet's well being. Easy location and availability of appointments."

“We live far away but a friend recommended this clinic to us. It was worth the trip and my dog is much better now. The staff and doctors here are so amazing. We’ve been to many vets and I’ve never felt this taken care of.

Dr. Chan followed up with us the day of and after. I’m so happy we finally found a trustworthy, clean and professional veterinary hospital!”

"My little girl Stella has been seeing Dr. Clark since she came into my home at 6 weeks old, she is now 15 years old!!! We have moved around a bit since then and are now driving for an hour each way to Dr. Clark! I would not trust anyone other than Dr. Clark and his team to take care of my beautiful little girl!"

What is the Walk-My-Dog Program?

It’s simple, fun, and good for you and your furry family members. The concept is similar to a library’s summer reading program, but instead of reading books, participants are walking miles with their dogs.

Walk your own dog(s) on your own schedule and on your own route to win prizes.

Why do it?

Walking your dog provides an excellent foundation for good physical and mental health, both for you and your furry friend. Getting outside and walking your dog helps burn calories, improve cardiovascular fitness, strengthen bones and joints, decrease stress and improve the bond with your pet.

Studies show that folks who have a training partner are more likely to stay motivated and fit – and that is especially true if your training partner is a dog!

Pull out the leash, and the tail is wagging – how can you say no?

The submission can be a picture or video but MUST include your dog. Use the hashtags #WalkMyDog #WagItBetter and tag the sponsoring business so we can search the submissions and select ones at random for fun prizes.
