Nothing is more important than the health of your family members, and that includes your four-legged family members too. When your furry friends need to see a doctor, you want one that understands how much your pet means to you. At Family Animal Medicine the staff understands, and they make sure that your family member is treated like one of their own.
Located at 9200 N. Garnett in Owasso, this veterinary hospital is one of a kind. Dr. Jenny Nobles and Dr. Gena Guerriero have almost two decades of combined experience caring for animals. As pet owners themselves, they understand firsthand how these creatures wiggle their way into your heart. “We know that people have a variety of places to choose from when it comes to taking care of your pets,” states Dr. Nobles. “What sets us apart from the rest is that we provide a family atmosphere. We focus on creating an entire team effort between the doctors, the staff, the pets and their owners.”
This synergy is possible in large part because the staff here has actually been working together for years. Everyone from the receptionist to the vet techs, doctors, and even the groomer have all worked side by side for almost a decade. “Being together this long has allowed us to get to know each other well,” says Dr. Guerriero. “We take the time to really get to know our clients and their pets better.”
This kind of personal attention is what brings clients back. One of the most recognized staff members, Wanda, has been serving the Owasso community since 1990. She recently was nominated for “Vet Tech of the Year,” a highly prestigious title since the candidates are nominated by their customers. Wanda was in the top five out of over 1,200 others in the running – no surprise for those who have come to know her. “She is certainly the matriarch of the clinic,” says Dr. Guerriero. “She is so well known and well loved by all who know her. She has a genuine love for all the animals who visit, and you can tell that they feel the same about her.”
Family Animal Medicine is celebrating their one-year anniversary in their new location, yet some clients have not realized that they have moved. “We still hear daily from clients who didn’t know where we were,” says Dr. Nobles. “We hope that they will appreciate and enjoy our new facility. We offer extra-large examination rooms, which helps with the anxiety pets feel in a strange environment. We have one goal in mind: to take care of the animals, get to know them by name and create a soothing environment they will feel comfortable in. This attention to the details really sets us apart from everyone else.”
Family Animal Medicine is open Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Saturday from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. Appointments are suggested so they can attend to each customer in a timely fashion. They offer all typical services including spay and neutering, surgery, X-rays, blood work and health screenings. They also offer grooming services.
Flea and tick season is now in full swing and making sure your pet is taking a heartworm preventative is extremely important during the spring and summer months. As an added benefit to their customers, the doctors suggest liking their Facebook page. This is a great way to know about all the monthly specials and to receive discounts and coupons.
