The Pet Wellness Center | Phoenix, Arizona
Where Pets Come To Get Well & Stay Well!
We believe that prevention is the very best medicine and want all pets to live happy, healthy lives. That’s why at The Pet Wellness Center we want to offer you all of the tools that you need to help your pet live a long and happy life.
Your Pet Is Important To Us!
We custom fit each wellness appointment based on the specific needs of each patient. Every pet is different; from the tip of their nose to their happy wagging tails, and what one pet needs to stay healthy may be completely different from the next! We also focus on making each visit as stress free as possible for both you and your pet. A vet visit shouldn’t be scary, and our custom fit visits help those pets that may be nervous in the clinic. And if your pet is feeling a bit under the weather, we can help them too! We have a full service in house laboratory as well as digital x-ray. We can help get them feeling better and on the way to recovery. Come see us and experience the difference!
