At BestFriends Veterinary Clinic, we believe in fostering strong relationships with our clients while practicing high quality medicine and providing excellent client education. We strive to provide the best care that suits each situation. It is our responsibility to advise our clients and provide them with the best information possible to help them make decisions about the care of their pets. It is also our responsibility to recognize that the course of that care is ultimately the client’s decision, and to understand that every situation is unique and limitations may exist which are beyond our perception. Our clients will always be treated with compassion and understanding as we provide care for their pets.
It is our mission to provide exceptional medical, surgical, and preventive health care in a professional environment which is caring and comfortable for our clients, their pets, and our employees.
I cannot even begin to express how much we love this clinic. All the animals get so excited to see Dr. Sell and the staff. We followed Dr. Sell from another clinic and have been with her now for about 18 years. We have recommended BestFriends to many of our friends.D.R.
I love the fact that everyone knows my dog’s history and they REMEMBER it! It's the kind of thing I look for in a doctor for my family, so having it in my pet’s doctor and staff is really comforting. Wouldn't take my pets anywhere else!Shelley B.
The staff is always so nice and truly care about my pets. I couldn’t have picked a better clinic for my pets. One of my dogs is still alive because Dr. Sell wouldn't stop until we found out what was wrong with him. Everyone at the clinic knows our family and pets and they truly care about them. Every time I go there, I feel very safe knowing that they are doing the best for my pets, we are not just another number. Even if we moved away, I would still drive to take my pets there.Pamela G.
Fantastic! The doctor actually took her time to look over my dog’s history and knew everything and could talk about his medical history with me without referring back to the paperwork. The staff was amazing and let me be hands on with my pet during his care which was very comforting.Ashley B.
We offer a wide range of services including medical, diagnostic, surgical, wellness, and preventive health care needs for your pets so they live healthy, happy lives.
Wellness exams are the cornerstone of preventive care. Annual wellness exams help us keep your pet healthy. We make vaccine recommendations based upon your pet’s individual risk factors. We recommend year-round use of heartworm and flea/tick preventatives. And we recommend routine diagnostic testing as your pet ages to enable us to detect diseases and health conditions early, when they can be more readily treated so your pet can live a longer, healthier life.
Dental care is a very important part of your pet’s overall health. More than 85% of dogs and cats over four years of age have periodontal disease, which can lead to many serious medical problems. Routine dental care, including teeth cleaning, a thorough oral exam, and full-mouth x-rays will help keep your pet’s breath fresh and their teeth and gums healthy.
We perform many types of soft tissue surgeries including spays and neuters, mass removals, and bladder and intestinal surgeries. We also work with board-certified surgeons who come to our clinic to perform orthopedic surgeries and other specialized procedures. We monitor our anesthetic patients’ blood pressure, EKG, and oxygen levels, in addition to continuous hands-on monitoring by a veterinary technician to make sure all procedures are as safe as possible.
We utilize a reference laboratory to provide timely, accurate results for diagnostic tests including bloodwork, cultures, and pathology. In addition, our in-house laboratory is equipped with state-of-the-art blood chemistry, blood count, and urine analyzers for when we need rapid results. We have digital x-rays, with access to board-certified radiologists to help interpret x-rays if needed.
