"I took my dog for his first visit and was very impressed with all if the staff and the facility. The Dr. took the time to review my dog's history, examine him thoroughly and answered all of my many questions. I am so happy to have found Cornerstone!"

"This is my veterinarian because they deal with all animals. I have 6 exotic birds and they are great with them especially my one macaw who is fearful of people. I take my dogs and cats as well. Very knowledgeable people about my animals and friendly to the owner too. And the prices aren't really expensive either."

B.D.

"We are so glad we found Dr Loden and the others at Cornerstone about 2 1/2 years ago. They are fabulous and live by their motto “where pets are family too”. Dr Loden is thorough and kind. He provides explanation for everything he does and consults with you when necessary. He ensures there is time for any questions. Our dogs are incredibly important to us. Dr Loden helped us through the loss of two of our best friends. I struggle to know they could have had better care earlier had we known of Dr Loden when we moved here. We have 2 young dogs now and we are certain they are getting the best care they can get. They deserve Cornerstone!"

There are side effects to walking your pet that

January 5th National Bird Day

Is a pet bird for me? Birds are enchanting and beautiful creatures that amuse us with their curious behavior. They have increased in popularity over the last few decades. Many of them live in our homes without major problems; others suffer tremendously from an unnatural lifestyle. By instinct, birds were designed to soar the sky, gaze from tree branches, and often flock with their own kind. Dogs and cats have adapted, through many generations, to being part of our family. The same may not be said about birds. Even birds that are raised in captivity still possess the wild bird
