Red Cedar Animal Hospital, PC, was established in 2002. The vision was to provide exceptional veterinary service to the community through comprehensive care and helping clients enjoy the special bond they share with their pets. An emphasis on customer service and client education helps to fulfill these goals. Another objective was to develop an atmosphere where pets enjoyed coming. Taking time to know your pet and go at your pet's pace as well as liberal use of an assortment of treats helps to alleviate fear and anxiety about going to the doctor's office.
We also strive to tailor vaccine protocols and treatment plans to each individual pet's needs, instead of a one-size-fits-all philosophy. We include you as part of your pet's health care team, as your observations are a critical component of care. Our goal is a long, happy, healthy life for your four-legged friends.
