Providing Quality Medicine with Compassion

Our practice was established in 2001, by Dr’s Mark Fosberg and Karen Yamamoto, with an emphasis on providing outstanding veterinary healthcare in a gentle and compassionate manner.

Our mission is to provide outstanding veterinary health care in a gentle and compassionate manner allowing our patients to have the highest quality of life. It is our promise to treat each patient with dignity and expertise. The patient’s owner will be communicated with in a professional manner and every effort will be made to accommodate their needs.

We offer tours of the hospital and lodging at all times.  Feel free to ask for a tour during your next visit.  We are also open to giving tours/field trips to groups of school kids, daycares, and summer and Bible camps.
