Pet Wellness Plans that save money and protect your pet for the long haul.

Our Care Companion Plan™ sets a precedent. Essential care is neatly packaged into pay-monthly plans that ensure each pet receives above-and-beyond attention. As your furry family members age, the plans change to fit their specific needs. We keep track of payment, recommend plan changes, and update you about upcoming exams and treatments often and with transparency. Truly, it comes down to doing what’s best for the pets. That’s what it’s all about.

Veterinary Testimonials

These folks are our primary vets for both our cat and dog. The two vets here are always helpful and friendly. In particular they have been intentionally trying to make the first visits our puppy makes to their office primarily fun so she learns to enjoy them. They’ve also been knowledgeable and professional when our pets have had their various medical issues.

– Matt A.

My wife and I adopted a 1 year old golden in July which came to us with a rash and almost hive like bumps. The staff and Vets at Critter Doctor have been great. They cleared up the initial rash quickly and started walking us through the different options as we sorted out his allergies all the while doing their best to keep our expenses down. My sister-in-law has also been taking her 13 year old lab here for her entire life and the staff has been wonderful with her as well. The vets have also been great about returning calls and questions that we have had along the way.

-William W.

The staff and great vet took care of my cat for years and did a wonderful job. They were always concerned that the right thing was done for Syphon. Sadly I moved to Oregon and can no longer use their services. Keep up the good work!
