dilworth animal hospitalDilworth Animal Hospital
Our philosophy can be summarized in two words: “Compassionate Care.”

This means top quality medicine, but also it means that we remain sensitive to the needs and desires of our families. We recognize that there are many factors that come into play for each patient and their family, including time, quality of life, and financial issues.

We take great pride in the amount of time devoted to educating our families. Our families deserve to know why a particular protocol is recommended and what the value of these treatments will be in the long term. We also feel that it is important to help differentiate between what is needed versus what is optimal. We will always treat your “family members” as if they were our very own.
