Amazing staff! Doug Kern is excellent at what he does. I’ve never had another place care for my animal like they do here! If your looking for the best then end you search because you have found it with Dr Kern

I have been to many veterinarians over the last 15 years and by far this is the best place I have ever taken my cats!! The doctor is very knowledgeable & the staff are super friendly & both are gentle & kind. I'm very grateful for the excellent care my cats have received. We have one elder cat that was misdiagnosed by 2 other vets but Dr. Kern knew right away what was really going on & prescribed a medication that has helped our baby. He did a fantastic job with our other cat's teeth & diagnosed kidney failure. He's also going to be helping me to better manage our other cat's diabetes. I highly recommend taking your fur babies to Dr. Kern & staff.

Dr. Doug Kern and his staff are absolutely amazing, definitely the best care for your beloved pets. We recently had an emergency with our French bull dog (Buddy). Doug answered my text messages at all hours of the day, night and weekend. Doug also made Buddy his first priority on an emergency Basis, got him in for surgery and saved his life. His assistant Marcie was an angel, took buddy home first night after surgery and rehabbed him for us. We don’t know what we would do without Doug and his staff and can’t thank them enough for all the amazing care they have givin us over the years.
