A bit about our doctors...

Our vets have one objective that we all share: Your animals come first.

Our combined experience brings over 60 years of knowledge to our clients and their pets. We don't rely solely on our experience, so we also stay on top of the cutting edge technology for the care and well being of your animals such as s a state of the art lase therapy system and digital x-ray machines.

All of the vets in our clinic share the belief of pet population control. Our primary staff veterinarian, Dr. Harper spends a good portion of his personal time volunteering his services at low to no cost spay/neuter clinics in the local Northwest Arkansas area. Overpopulation of both dogs and cats cause a high number of, otherwise healthy, pets to be euthanized simply because there are not enough families to adopt them.
