Anxiety? Bad Breath? Stomach and Intestinal Problems? Behavioral issues? Skin Issues? - Garrison Animal Care Clinic is here to help

At Garrison Animal Care Clinic our policy is simple: We love pets and love keeping them healthy even more.

Principle Veterinarian, Dr. Donna Williams specializes in providing our patients with quality preventative care, long-term treatments for chronic issues , and client education that empowers every owner to be an active member of their pet’s medical team.

Your pets’ well-being is important to us regardless of their age, disposition, or medical history. We treat both dogs and cats and strive to keep our clinic comfortable for both species -- we even have a room dedicated just to cats! Our clinic’s culture believes in adapting how we handle your pet based on their personality so that they have as comfortable a visit as possible.

Our clients’ experience is deeply important to our veterinary practice, and we take every possible measure to ensure that you feel like a complete partner in planning your pet’s medical care. On a slow day we are happy to walk you and your family through our clinic so that you can meet our medical team face to face.  We are also happy to schedule “Friendly Pup Visits” - an appointment where your dog can visit the clinic, explore, and meet the team without any invasive procedures or shots.

We believe in conversations, not lectures. We believe in community. We believe in keeping our pets happy, healthy, and vibrant.
