Support Staff

Our team of Doctors is supported by an experienced, highly trained and caring support staff. From the moment you check in, to the time you check out, you and the patient (your pet) will be treated like family.

But our care and concern doesn’t stop when you walk out the door. We’ll follow up with you at home after any major illness or procedure to ensure a full continuum of proper patient care.

Coddle Creek Animal Hospital – providing the kind of care you & your pet deserve!
