Expect Personalized Veterinary Service at Every Appointment

At Companion Care Veterinary Hospital, our veterinarian and full staff provide patients and clients personalized care with every visit whether it’s a wellness or preventative care appointment or an emergency urgent care visit. We want every client and patient to leave happy, healthy, and with all questions and concerns addressed. At each consultation, we spend at least one hour with each pet and pet parent to ensure every office visit benefits you and your pets. Our veterinarian spends individual time visiting with each pet and client, performing a physical examination and interviewing the pet owner about the pet's behavior, diet, and activity to ensure optimal wellness for every animal we meet.

Dr. Satowski strongly believes that prevention is the best medicine. We encourage new pet owners to schedule wellness and vaccination appointments for their young animals. During an initial wellness appointment, our veterinarian will assess your pet's overall health, looking for any underlying conditions or illnesses which might benefit from an early diagnosis. In addition, we will set your new pet up on a scheduled wellness plan of required vaccinations, like rabies and feline leukemia, and recommended procedures spaying or neutering to ensure your new family member has the best opportunity to enjoy an illness-free, love-filled, happy life with his or her new owners. 

In addition to wellness checks and preventative appointments, Dr. Satowski is experienced with performing in-office surgeries and highly trained in diagnosing and treating endocrine disorders, skin conditions, and pet allergies. We offer a full menu of veterinary services from surgeries, urgent, and emergency care to wellness and holistic treatments such as ultrasound, acupuncture, and cold laser therapy. Our clinic is fully equipped with a full digital x-ray, an in-house lab, and a complete staff of veterinary professionals. Although we offer the latest in treatment technology and methods, we still consider ourselves an old fashioned veterinary clinic, working calmly, patiently, and gently with each patient. We also strive to give back to the communities we serve by providing veterinary care for rescued animals. 

Please contact our office to schedule your pet's consultation with Dr. Satowski. We look forward to welcoming you and your pets to our office.
