The facility now provides comprehensive pet care services — boarding, day camp, grooming, training and veterinary care — all in one convenient location.

Led by Cassandra Lewis, DVM, the practice offers complete health care and medical services for dogs, cats as well as some small animals, including routine health care exams and vaccinations, general surgery and dentistry.

The Total Care Plan covers a free annual exam, unlimited office visits and discounts on routine health services, plus a 10 percent discount on other pet care services – including boarding, grooming and doggy day camp.

“Our goal is to provide outstanding health care service to pets — and their owners — in a caring and compassionate environment,” says Dr. Lewis. “Our services are designed to help every pet live the healthiest, happiest life possible.”

Dr. Lewis is a graduate of the Purdue University School of Veterinary Medicine. She completed her internship at the Kendall Road Equine Hospital in Elgin, before moving to Wisconsin to work with companion animals at a mixed animal care hospital.
