Saturday, June 30th will be Dr Abigail Sine's last day as a member of The Family Pet Team. She is moving to New York city to give all those east coast pets the great care only she can provide. Our loss will be New York's gain.
We will miss her!

Doctors Carrie Schneider, Mary Kay Hilmoe, Shannon Nagasako, Abigail Sine, Angela Krzmarzick and our highly qualified support staff are experienced in complicated cases and geriatric medicine. They are motivated to make your pets visit pleasant while offering the best possible diagnostic and treatment options.
We strive to furnish the very best veterinary services and education to our clients to help our patients lead longer, healthier lives.
