I take both of my cats that were each brought in as strays to this vet. Dr. Van Winkle is always so knowledgeable, compassionate and wonderful with both of my cats. Their staff, especially Chanel, always follows up and are so patient and helpful. Their wellness plan that they offer is an awesome option for college students and pet owners on a budget. Cannot recommend enough, thank you so much for all that you do!

I have been taking my cats to Dr Cooley for over 15 years. He is very knowledgeable and takes all steps necessary to pinpoint the problem, as well as advises of risks of treatment or procedures. The staff is so kind and compassionate. I can’t imagine taking my animals anywhere else.

Once again Dr. Cooley & his staff have gone above & beyond for helping us care for one of our animals. This is the clinic to bring your animal to if you want caring professionals who will treat your pet like family.
