USDA Accredited

As a USDA Accredited veterinarian, Dr. Poller can perform the health exam necessary to provide an international travel certificate. These certificates maintain the safety of your pet and other pets when travelling around the world.

Procedural Standards

We do not believe in procedures which are purely cosmetic, such as ear clipping or tail docking. When your pet does need a procedure performed, whether it is a routine spay or neuter or a more specialized surgery, we follow the highest surgical protocols and your pet's vitals will be monitored throughout the surgery. For more specialized procedures, we work with a board-certified surgeon who can come to our facility.
