We stress a long life of good pet health through preventative care and wellness exams. If needed, however, we employ the full range of progressive diagnostics to help treat your pet.
Just because they may not show it, dosen't mean they don't suffer. We take pain seriously! Our doctors and staff firmly believe that no animal should have to live in pain. Whether post-operative pain, injury, or chronic arthritis, your pet deserves to be as pain-free as possible. Our staff will develop the best possible pain relief plan for your pet and its individual situation. We utilize an arry of medication types and strengths to give your pet (and you) the comfort they need and deserve.
Along with our medical expertise we feel a major asset of the Barberton Veterinary Clinic is our experienced caring staff.
We are truly "Pet People" who share your desire for the best pet care available.
