Operating daily (Monday - Saturday) with 6 highly trained veterinarians (treating dogs, cats, and small mammals), professionally trained veterinary technicians, state-of-the-art equipment and full service boarding and grooming facilities.  Each staff member of AMC strives to create a family-type atmosphere for your pet by providing it with love, respect and kindness in a caring environment.
