There is no question that pets are a wonderful addition to any family big or small. They become our best friend filling our life with laughter and unconditional love, all the while asking for nothing in return but our love and companionship. Our pets are always looking for something fun to do as they play in their yards, or at the park. It is their curiousity that leads them on their adventures for fun, which sometimes results in mischief and injury. Just about every pet owner has a story they can tell about how their best friends curiousity got the best of them resulting in a trip to the local animal hospital. Local animal hospitals are generally owned and operated by an individual veterinarian, or an large networks of veterinarians. Some network veterinarians have more then 470 animal hospitals across the nation to serve you and your pets health care needs. These animal hospitals are fully staffed with qualified, compassionate vets and technicians that are ready to get your pets health restored. At one time, local animal hospitals were only there for emergency pet care, but today they are designed to provide your pets with both wellness and emergency pet care. Their mission is to provide you pet with prompt, top quality care, and have them back into your home where they can continue to flourish with your love.
