Pet Samaritan Clinic is a well established small animal veterinary clinic located in the heart of the city. Our team is dedicated to the well being of our patients and the people who get to have them as their companions. We currently offer services to cats, dogs, some pocket pets, large avian pets and some barnyard poultry. We offer in-house ultrasound, full dentistry capability and an array of surgical procedures. We are a 3 doctor practice currently running Monday-Saturday hours. We are newly paperless and use the AviMark software system. Our staff has a combined number of years in the field that well exceeds the usual amount; some team members have been here 20+ years and still love the job! We are looking to add to our Pet Sam Family. Are you the one we are looking for?
