"My puppy had surgery on Friday and on Saturday morning I thought she pulled some of the stiches. I called the vet's office and in 20 minutes they called back and asked that I meet them up at the office in 20 minutes. Bianca didn't pull the stiches out but it was good piece of mind that I had knowing her doctor came up on a Saturday and saw her."

"I switched over to this vet a little over a year ago because the care at our old vet was not the way it was when we first got there. We switched over and we’re immediately treated like family. Our dog loves the consistency of the place and employees that work there. It seems we get the same bunch every time we are there. We aren’t having to wait weeks to get in to be seen also! We have been battling some issues with our doggos health, and they get her in almost immediately to see her! We love it there!!"

"This was the first appointment for my new puppy. Dr. Barks was very thorough on his exam and vaccines, she answered every question I had. I am so glad I chose Cornerstone Animal Hospital for all my puppy's needs."

"Best ever. Traveling across the country and my 12 yr old dog tore his ACL. They were awesome. Pain management was recommended and follow up with our primary vet"

September is Animal Pain Awareness Month

The International Veterinary Academy of Pain Management has designated September as Pain Awareness Month. The failure to recognize pain especially chronic pain is a common problem by professionals and caretakers. Acute or sudden pain such as a broken foot is easy to recognize because our pet is holding a foot and will not walk on the foot. Chronic pain or pain that develops slowly is not always as easy to recognize. Signs of chronic pain are often easily justified away as being due to other causes. The two most common sources of chronic pain that are ignored and justified away
