  • Crispy Creme ...

Not having any luck locating Cripsy’s previous owners, Dr. Konegger decided to let him become our second office cat. Crispy is often found hanging with employees at lunch or lounging in one of the cat trees through out the clinic.

  • Schwartz
    Clinic Cat

    Schwartz came to us in January 2011 from a local shelter. He had severe corneal ulcers, and no one was sure his eyes could be saved.

He now greets clients and patients, and is frequently seen lounging in the reception area.
