Our Philosophy & Mission

Doctors 2019

Dogwood provides treatment and preventive health care with the same dignity, compassion, and courtesy for our clients’ pets as we would do for our own pets. We enhance and prolong our patients’ quality of life. We educate our clients concerning all aspects of their pet’s health care including physical and emotional needs.

We show how much we care, not how much we know. We provide such service that ensures the human/animal bond is developed, strengthened, promoted, and celebrated.

As a team, our core values are Excellence, Commitment, and Compassion.
We hope that, as our client, you feel the depth of our care for you and your pet.
