About Dog & Cat Clinic

Our mission is simple: we want your pets to be happy and healthy. We want you to enjoy the companionship of your pet without having to worry about their health! We have been caring for dogs and cats since 1947, and would love to have you join our family.

Our team is local: almost everyone lives in Leavenworth County. It probably goes without saying that everyone here loves dogs and cats (and horses, but we don’t have the facilities to provide care for horses). We look forward to meeting you and your pet!
