"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."
"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!"

National Reptile Awareness Day – Oct 21st
Reptiles are found in 3.8 million households in the United States. The need to promote the welfare of these pets is great. Many are traded and sold by pet stores to individuals with limited knowledge of how to properly care for them. Often, the person selling the reptile also has limited knowledge as the establishment doesn’t have adequate time and understanding of what the reptile actually needs. National Pet Awareness Day was created with the hope of educating the public about the needs of different reptiles, their requirements, and an overall appreciation of reptiles. We don’t know how many reptilesRead More
October 9 is National Pet Obesity
YES! Over half of all dogs and cats are overweight. Why should I be concerned about the weight of my dog or cat? Most of us consider our furbabies an important part of our family.

Did you realize that many of the diseases routinely treated are triggered by obesity? Dogs and cats with excess fat are at increased risk for developing diabetes,Read More
Chronic Pain in Our Pets
Major cause of suffering for our pets We all are able to recognize acute or sudden pain by our dog or cat screaming, crying, or growling uncharacteristically when touched or handled. Generally, if your pet will not bear weight on a leg or is limping, it is in pain. Chronic pain is often a dull, aching pain that increases gradually over time. Since chronic pain starts slowly and gradually increases with time, our pets do not always exhibit obvious pain. Many dogs and cats adjust, tolerate, and accept chronic pain, so often there are few clues. While some of theRead More
