Welcome to

My Pet's Animal Hospital

“When I opened My Pet’s Animal Hospital, I wanted to work in a place where we delivered veterinary care in a manner that I would want for my own pets. In order to do that, one has to always maintain the pet parent’s perspective. One has to make people feel welcome when they come in. And one has to deliver quality veterinary care.” – Sam Meisler DVM, founder and owner
