Serving Mercer, Darke, and Auglaize counties, our offices work together to promote the best possible animal care for our patients. We employ 7 doctors and 6 licensed veterinary technicians to care for our patients.
We see small animal veterinary appointments daily in our clinics. Please feel free to call at any time during business hours to schedule your appointment. We see pets by appointment to better serve all our clients and patients.
We understand that sometimes accidents happen or your pet may become suddenly ill. In cases of emergencies, you can reach a doctor on call 24 hours a day by dialing the clinic phone number. All after hours and weekend emergencies are seen at the Maria Stein clinic which is most centrally located. This allows for better intensive care for ill animals.
Please note that payment is expected at the time services are completed.
We perform surgeries in all of our clinics with most pets returning home the same day. We have in-house blood diagnostics in our Maria Stein and Wapakoneta offices. Radiology and ultrasound are done in the our Maria Stein clinic.
In order to help you keep your pets looking and feeling their best, we offer a full line of bathing and grooming services at all of our clinics. We groom both cats and dogs. We can also update vaccines or perform other veterinary services while your pet is here with us.
Our Maria Stein clinic offers boarding for your pet care needs while you are away for a day, weekend, or extended stay. Those pets with special medical needs are easily cared for by our quality staff. Again, veterinary services can be done while your pet is boarding. Boarding is overseen by our veterinary technicians and veterinarians.
We carry Eagle brand quality foods for your pets at all clinics. We also get weekly deliveries of Hills prescription foods for those pets that have special dietary needs.
