Philosophy/Mission:  Our mission is to keep our patients healthy and happy, to practice the highest quality medical care with genuine compassion in a safe and comfortable environment, and to provide an exceptional educational experience for our clients at every visit.  The special bonds we have with our own pets are our motivation to fulfill this mission.

Claim to Fame/Signature Product or Service:  Pearl Animal Hospital provides exceptional customer and patient service.  Our staff is genuinely caring, and we provide personalized report cards after every appointment to detail exam findings and provide further recommendations for pet health.  We provide detailed follow-up care with personalized emails and phone calls.  We love our patients and clients, and we try to delight them — like Spank and his owner who just emailed and thanked us for “the amazing care and attention Spank received . . . Pearl Animal Hospital is the best pet resource in Spank’s entire 8 years of life seriously!”

Community Involvement, Special Notes:  You are likely to see familiar Pearl Animal Hospital faces at many local pet events as we like to be out and about in the community as much as possible.  We also host our own events such as stuffed-animal surgery and photography for kids and our annual First Thursday anniversary party featuring local artists Jennifer Mercede and Michael Rausch.  We believe in keeping our community pet friendly and clean by sponsoring pet waste stations.  In addition, we are huge fans and supporters of local nonprofit adoption groups and provide free exams for shelter adoptees.
