We believe in a team approach to veterinary care. Our diverse group of doctors work closely with your family veterinarian helping to ensure the best and most comprehensive medical care possible for your pet.

Testimonials from happy patients ( And their owners )

“In our recent, emotional journey in uncovering & addressing an aggressive cancer in our 4-yr old chocolate lab, our family was SO incredibly blessed to be referred to Dr. Kraiza & Dr. Goodrich!  It has become abundantly clear that our sweet Maggie has the best possible care around with Dr. Kraiza, Dr. Goodrich & their staff! These doctors quickly prove how dedicated & caring they are. They were SO thorough with Maggie’s exams; they fully explained everything in a way I could easily understand which helped me determine how to best proceed. They are so patient, kind & compassionate – I could tell they genuinely care about their patients & families. They didn’t rush difficult decisions, but posed different options & possible realistic results. I also have to HIGHLY PRAISE Dr. Goodrich for her AMAZING skills in expertly performing a difficult surgery. I really didn’t know what to expect in how drastic Maggie’s appearance would change, but the cancer had to be removed as much as possible. When Dr. Goodrich brought Maggie out upon discharge, Maggie seemed so happy & energetic, she didn’t express any discomfort or fear & she looked like nothing had really changed! This is a TOP NOTCH practice! THANK YOU!!!”
