Quality Services You Can Trust

Experience counts in veterinary medicine. Dr. Ott has had a successful small animal practice for over 50 years. We have over 100 years combined experience with our veterinarians Dr. Ott, Dr. Waldy, Dr. Heaton & Dr. Langston. All of our support staff has regular on-site training and also receives continuing education off-site.

Dr. Ott has gained regional and national recognition for one of the first centers for treating feline hyperthyroidism. Our Cat Thyroid Center opened in 1999 and has treated over 3800 cats with this disease from as far away as Colorado, Tennessee, New York, Puerto Rico, Brazil and Nassau.
