We cater primarily to dogs and cats with some exotic and pocket pet patients. On top of our high medical standards we are also a very team oriented practice, and enjoy team building events throughout the year (such as renting out a movie theatre for all team members, their family and friends, for the Star Wars movies each year!). Looking for someone who is like-minded and would fit in with our family-type atmosphere. Comprehensive benefits including health insurance and CE. Most of our doctors average about $10K/year in benefits above their salary.

We are constantly updating to keep the hospital warm, welcoming, and safe for our furry guests!
Continuing Education for Doctors and Staff
Continuing education is essential to good medicine. It allows us to practice the kind of healthcare that prevents needless suffering, costs less in the long run, and increases quality and length of life for your pet. Every year we take most of our team to the North American Veterinary Conference in Florida, the largest veterinary education conference in the world, and other medical training programs throughout the year. There, we attend lectures on cutting-edge research and technology. We also assist our staff with pursuing advanced degrees and have regular continuing education and cross-training for all staff. We are tireless when it comes to lifelong learning and budget $50,000.00 each year for training!
Advanced Oral Care
Since dogs and cats use their mouths for everything, we promote good oral care. Whether it is as simple as brushing your pet’s teeth with baking soda out of your cupboard or scheduling a dentistry here at the hospital including full-mouth x-rays, probing, charting…the works. Did you know that the tooth enamel on dogs and cats is four times thinner than human enamel? We are into this kind of thing! You won’t find more experienced general practice dentists than here at Dandy Acres.
Doctors at Dandy Acres and Easthaven
Unlike many veterinarians, the doctors at Dandy Acres/Easthaven are not paid on commission. Our doctors are paid a fair salary like all our staff so you can enjoy consistent, improved, and trustworthy healthcare. You may see only one doctor but because they all work closely together behind the scenes your loved one gets multiple doctors for the price of one! You would be hard-pressed to find people who care more than our thoughtful, hard-working medical team. We took our time looking for excellent doctors and we are so lucky to have them here at both of our hospitals. Please check out their bio’s.
While we make lots of changes and improvements over time, we work hard to make pet care affordable and hold the line on price increases as much as we can. We refuse to reduce quality so we still deliver our especially thorough exams. We work hard to offer the highest quality care at affordable prices and have taken measures to simplify and reduce costs for our clients. We do not require a doctor's physical exam for heartworm tests and some other simple procedures. We have lowered prices to be comparable to internet prices on many of the medicines our clients spend the most money on, namely the big brand names like HeartGard™ and Frontline™.
We test because animals, generally, don’t speak English. Urine tests, blood tests, fecal tests, biopsies, x-rays, ultrasounds, etc., all give us “a look under the hood”, so we can discover what is going on behind the physical examinations and head off trouble when we can. Getting ahead of things saves our clients money, trouble, worry, and time. And of course it saves our patients from a lot of unnecessary misery.
We have strict protocols for cleaning and managing all areas of the hospital to prevent the transmission of disease and odor. There are rules and procedures for the floors, walls, every surface, every piece of equipment, every single item in the hospital. We are OSHA and AAHA (American Animal Hospital Association) compliant. We use appropriate materials and special HVAC equipment and filtration (air ventilation) to prevent germ transmission. We follow three simple rules: 1. Clean. 2. Clean. 3. Clean some more.
Let's start with a license...and then let's talk.
