Above all, we emphasize the highest quality pet health and wellness, because we believe all animals deserve a better chance to live longer, happier and healthier lives. And, when treating or caring for your pet, we consider everything from environment to disease patterns to his or her relationship with you.

We look at your pet from a holistic viewpoint— medically, psychologically and environmentally. We work every day to earn your loyalty and trust and to build a long-term partnership by maintaining the highest standards of veterinary care through all stages of your pet's life. We make this promise as if your pet were our own because we understand the special and unique bond that you and your pets share.

Our Zen-inspired Center for Holistic Studies is where homeopathy, acupuncture, nutrition and herbalism are used to get your adored pet onto the road to recovery. Emergencies can happen at any time, and we know that when your pets are ailing, you suffer, too. So our doctors and technical staff are trained in emergency medicine and critical care and are on-site around the clock ready to deal with any pet emergency - 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. Our clients have access to leading-edge products, services and educational content focused on enhancing the human-animal bond. We also offer canine rehabilitation, pharmaceuticals, acupuncture and homeopathy.

Dr. Stephen P. Carter
Dr. Stephen P. Carter

“The staffs at all the clinics are great people, as well as the doctors, and fun to be around. Growing up in Morris, I enjoy the small town living and the quality medicine we can offer our communities.”

An interest in, and compassion for the well-being of each patient, from a tree frog to a Labrador makes Dr. Stephen P. Carter one of our talented veterinarians.

After getting his bachelor's degree from the University of Illinois in 1986, Dr. Carter completed his DVM in 1991. He is a member of the AAHA, ISVMA, AVMA, Association of Reptile and Amphibian Veterinarians. He started with our practice in 1983 as a kennel technician and rejoined as a doctor in 1993.

Dr. Carter and wife, Sarah, have one daughter, Savannah and several pets: a Labrador, Tyree; a cat, Butter; and through the years have included snakes, lizards, rabbits, numerous small mammals; and a squirrel monkey named Alvin, while growing up.

He enjoys reading, fly fishing and other outdoor activities in his free time. Dr. Carter also has a 'mean' drop pitch in Wiffle Ball.
