Our Mission: To provide high quality medicine, diagnostics, and surgery in
a stress free, clean, and comfortable environment.
Welcome to the Animal Hospital of Fate! We are excited to have you visit
our site and look forward to you joining our family! We have been open since
December 2004, but have been in the area since the year 2000. We have
watched this area grow over time and are excited about the future of Fate.
We hope you are as excited about our future together as we are. We strive
to give your pets the most comfortable environment possible while serving you
and them with the top most care available. We are here to care for your pets!
Medicine: Preventative care is practiced through semi-annual health checks
which include physical examination, vaccinations, and lab tests as needed.
Surgery: When surgery is necessary, we offer in-house blood work,
cytology, and out-lab services. Only the safest anaesthesia is used in our
hospital. Your pet is carefully monitored during the procedure, given pain
medications for comfort, and wakes up in a warm, soft bed.
Dentistry: Maintaining a healthy mouth is essential to the well being of
pet, including heart disease. We are fully equipped with ultrasonic scaler,
polishers, and sealants.
Bed and Breakfast: Indoor kennels are available for the safety and
temperature comfort of your pet. Outdoor fenced play areas are available for
'recess' and 'activity time'.
Behavior Counseling: If you and your pet are having a problem, let us
discuss the problem and arrive at a solution agreeable to everyone.
Grooming: With sedation available, bathing and simple grooming can
become a much more pleasant experience for you and your pet.

College of Veterinary Medicine where she

work for Dr. Dan Posey in Madisonville, TX

care you expect when you are the patient."
