Puppy Care

Congratulations on adding a puppy to your family!  

We look forward to meeting your new puppy.  All of us are ready to get them started on their journey to a healthy life.  

It is important to have your new puppy examined by us as soon as you bring him or her home.  We will check their health and review their nutritional needs, vaccination schedule and parasite protection with you to ensure a healthy start in life.

These professionals have been like Angels to our family. They have taken care of our sweet old boy Karma. They have given tirelessly of themselves during the pandemic and I am so happy we found a Vet that I truly trust and appreciate. 10/10 would reccomend!

The doctor was very helpful and friendly. He was able to provide me with education about my dog in a very easy to understand manner. The price was great and the location is amazing. I will definitely be taking my dog here while we are stationed in Illinois.

Jeff Kordell is the best vet! I have been a pet owner for about two years now. When I first got my dog I went to 7 different vets before a friend told me about AMC. This office is an hour away from my house and is SO worth the drive! The office is very clean and the staff is wonderful. If you are looking for a vet that truly loves animals, look no further!

This is the only place I ever would trust my animals- Dr. Kordell has taken care of my dogs like they are his own. Dr. Spector has two of my dogs in her care for congestive heart failure and the whole team, including the techs are amazing.
