"Wonderful place! The entire staff is friendly and very helpful! The doctors take time to fully explain the diagnosis and what the treatment plan will entail, they also tell you the cost for everything in the beginning and they offer financial assistance if needed."
"Everyone here is great. The receptionist is always accomodating and friendly. The techs are loving towards your animals and Dr. Loden is absolutely the best doctor ever. I dont live in this area but for my pets, I wish I did. Thanks to all of you. ❤"
"The staff and doctors are caring and knowledgeable. They have been awesome about getting my dogs in to see a doctor right away. Their fees are somewhat higher than other clinics I've been to, but it's worth it to have my babies get such good care. Thank you Cornerstone!"
"nice. They handled my pug with care and made sure she was healthy. The first visit is a little pricey but it needed to be done and was worth having her health checked. The first visit always costs the most anyways and I know the next visit wont require as much. If you want your pet cared for this is a nice place to take them. ❤"

Atopy (Allergies) in Pets
Spring is not always a wonderful time for allergic pets. Pets which suffer from atopy, commonly know as allergies, have exaggerated responses to environmental pollens. Some of the most common environmental pollens in southwest Missouri are ragweed, Bermuda grass, oak, walnut, fescue, and molds. These are pollens that pets are exposed to routinely. These pollens easily float in the air from one yard to another. In humans, the primary target organ for pollens is the respiratory system. Itching eyes, runny nose, and coughing are the common symptoms. In the dog, the respiratory system is only affected in a small way.Read More
Chip Your Pet Month
Microchipping has become an effective way to help identify lost pets because it’s an inexpensive procedure and can not be easily removed as identification. A microchip is a small device placed between the shoulder blades on dog and cats. The device is about the size of a grain of rice inserted with a large bore needle. The microchip carries a unique number that is registered to your pet. Dog and cats tolerate the placement of microchips with minimal discomfort. On young puppies and kittens, I personally prefer to place the microchip at the time of neutering or spaying, while underRead More
June is Adopt a Cat Month
Why do we love cats so much? A love affair with cats is part of human history for centuries. Ancient Egyptians and Pharaohs declared them to be gods. Long before that, they were kept because they killed pesky creatures such as snakes, rats, and mice. Only during the dark ages was their relationship with humans severely damaged, being shunned through their association with Satanic activities. Still, the black cat suffers from the association with evil in Hollywood movies, witches, and Halloween activities. Do our cats live to please us as the Golden Retriever? Do our cats live to guard ourRead More
