About Us

Our Values:


Dr. Fox’s journey with veterinary services started with a childhood love for animals. This blossomed into a career delivering care to animals both large and small. His kind and gentle approach will help you feel at ease while your animals are receiving the care they need.


One thing we will never do is prescribe farm vet services, care, or medicine that your animal doesn’t need. Dr. Fox is straightforward in his diagnosis and will suggest only the most necessary procedures that will have the best opportunity for success and recovery.


No matter how small or large your animal or their needs are, Dr. Fox will always suggest the most effective and realistic services. No exaggerations or impractical options. It’s our commitment to do what’s right.


We know it’s not cheap to run a farm and household. Keeping your family and animals healthy and happy is no small feat. We will always provide the best care for your animals at a fair and honest price. No price gouging. No up-selling. Just top-of-the-line care for the best price available.
