The Message Behind the Mailbox

One of the most identifying features of our clinic, especially as new clients call us for directions, is the unique mailbox that will greet you from the highway prior to the entrance into our clinic.  Through the years, our custom mailboxes have had representative renditions of a beagle, a parrot, a cat, and now, this year, a Bantam Rooster!  The Bantam’s varied coloring and small size have made them a perfect backyard pet, as well as a star in the showing arena.  Our New MailboxOur New Mailbox!We think they are a perfect “ambassador” of changes in our area to incorporate these magnificent creatures into our everyday life!


These whimsical mailboxes lend themselves to the unique personality of our clinic-- for with as much detail that flows into each paint stroke and techniques of woodworking required to create these unique structures, our staff attends to the needs of your pet with one-of-a-kind care and attention.  We take tremendous interest in pets of all species--avian, pocket pets, reptiles, and of course, the dogs and cats that grace our homes.  We understand that these pets are a treasured part of your family, and recognize them as extraordinary--whether they fly, crawl, hop, walk or slither!


Next time you drive by our clinic, or stop in for a visit, take note of the mailbox that greets you--it was chosen with care to represent your wonderful companions that we get to see every day!
