We Love Animals at the Switzer Veterinary Clinic

dog and boysWe understand the connection that people share with their dogs and cats and horses — the unbreakable bond with our pets — because we have them too!

They are our friends, members of our family and sometimes even our surrogate children. They provide us with comfort and a quiet moment when we are sad, camaraderie when we need a friend, and a wet slobber when we need a laugh.

We throw tennis balls, ride horses and lounge with our cats in the sunshine. We love animals at the Switzer Veterinary Clinic because they form some of the strongest relationships in our own lives.
