About Your Veterinarian
Finding the right veterinarian is something that takes careful consideration. There are a lot of choices and the choice that pet parents make will be based on the specific needs of them and their pets. Some pets may start out with a relatively uneventful life needing routine care such as regular wellness visits, vaccinations, spay or neuter surgery. Some pet owners are looking for non-traditional options to routine pet care, such as doing blood titers instead of vaccines. And at some point in every pet’s life, they will need more than routine care such as an occasional visit for problems like ear infections or dietary indiscretion or more advanced diagnostic tests and treatments for more serious illnesses.
Wherever you are on this spectrum you want to find a veterinarian that has the knowledge, resources, and compassion to provide quality, comprehensive care, and who is open to non-traditional, or alternative treatments that give doctors more resources to treat pets. At Burke Animal Clinic we have experienced doctors trained in both traditional methods as well as alternative therapies. Compassion is our practice and wellness is our goal.

Holistic Medicine for Pets
