Dr. James Burns has been serving the needs of Montgomery County MD pets and their owners for over 35 years. When James Burns was a child, a neighbor asked him where the nearest veterinarian was. His reply was, "What is a veterinarian?" The neighbor told him that they were the people who took special care of animals… and the rest is history.
Having an animal in your home can be a very satisfying and rewarding experience. Pets have been a part of man's society throughout history; and they can provide security and companionship for people of any age, any sex, whether living alone or in a family environment.
For children, a pet is an outstanding "learning tool." Through a relationship with a pet, a child can find a deeper meaning for such words as loyalty, love, friendship, and responsibility.
To admit that you love a pet is a testimonial to your caring and compassion. The bond between a person and their pet is unique, and is one to be cherished.
At Flower Valley Veterinary Clinic, Dr. Burns, Dr. Martof, and their friendly staff, Susie, Kim, Stephanie, and Alexa understand and share your compassion for animals. You can be sure that your pet will receive the very best care, grooming, and attention at every visit.
