About us


We spent a lot of time thinking about one statement that captures what we want our patients and their owners to experience every time they walk through our door. “You’ll feel better here” not only became our motto, but also our philosophy. CityPets provides you with the highest quality comprehensive medical and dental care by a professional staff that always has your pet’s best interest at heart.

And since we’re a family-owned clinic, it’s only natural we treat our patients the same way. With respect, patience, compassion, and okay, maybe a few too many treats.
