  • Schwartz

Fortunately, Dr. Konegger took exceptional care of him, and saved not only his life, but he was able to retain a good portion of his eyesight as well. He now greets clients and patients, and is frequently seen lounging in the reception area.

  • Crispy Creme
    Clinic Cat

    Crispy Creme found us over the Fourth of July 2012 when a Greensburg Police Officer brought him in after being hit by a car.

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.
