Description

Our Hospital's Philosophy
Averill Animal Hospital strives to obtain a warm and informal atmosphere where the client and their pet(s) feel at home while still providing state of the art diagnostics and treatments. We emphasize a strong relationship with our clients and their pets and really consider them part of our family, making their visit to the practice as comfortable and personal as possible. Through this strong relationship with our patients, we always want the best and most current treatments to be offered, and therefore are continually adding the most current diagnostics and treatments available. We also stress proactive vs. reactive medicine and strive to push the ability to diagnose disease before clinical signs become apparent and prevent infectious disease both for our patients and for the community.
