What Family Means

To us, this is more than a community. This is our home. And we exist because we care, deeply, about the people and pets here. We understand what it’s like to love a pet so deeply. To care for them like you would care for any other member of your family. Here, we always take the time to listen to you. Here, we help you understand the deeper “why” of what is going on with your pet. And here, we guide you through the entire adventure of owning and loving a pet. No matter what, we are by your side. Because that’s what family means.

Because that’s what family means.

It might start with a phone call. An opened door and a first meeting. Questions, licks, laughs, exams, guidance. And it grows into so much more. We are passionate about making sure that every pet receives the best care possible here. But it’s the stories that we see that we cherish so much. Watching the life you share with your pet unfold between visits. Supporting you through the good, the bad, the happy, the unexpected. And caring for you, like family, through it all.

 

This is more than veterinary medicine to us. It’s a chance to make a difference in the lives of the people and pets we care for so very much. So give us a call, and let us do that for you both.

 

Reimagine Care

In everything we do, we believe in setting a new bar for what a veterinary practice can be and mean for a community. From rethinking the emotional experience that pets have with us through Fear Free techniques, to adopting technology and professional talent that create truly gold-standard medical care, to creating a pet-centric hub through Go Dogs, this is veterinary care, reimagined. We get pet lovers here. After all, we built all of this for you.

Because to us, caring for you and your pet isn’t a job. It is our calling in life.

Our Passion

We exist because we believe in making a difference in the lives of the people and pets of our community. That means the care that your pet receives is always the most important thing to us. It is what we think about when we wake up, what we think about on our drives home, and it shapes our professional development and our team’s growth. We are proud to provide such a high standard of care, because we know how precious the bond that you and your pet share is. And at every step of the way…

Beyond Care

We have been going to Shaffer Animal Hospital for years, and always receive excellent care for our furry family members. The staff is friendly and care about their patients. Our dogs, Hunter and Belle, get excited when we go there because they get a lot of love and attention from the staff. We highly recommend Shaffer Animal Hospital.

Dr. Patel and the staff were amazing!! Today was our first visit with them, and they took the time to actually sit with me and my pup and go over everything that’s going on with her. I am so glad we decided to get a second opinion and chose their office. I would give them 10 starts if I could. I would definitely recommend them to family and friends.
Tiffanie
The staff at this hospital are like family. They know all of our animals by name and are so wonderful at taking care of all their special needs. And my animals have many needs! Our furkids love going to the vet and they are always excited to see the staff at Shaffer Animal Hospital.
Lina
This is an amazing practice. They love your animals as you do. I feel like they know my pets and care about their lives. They don’t push unneeded care, but seek to educate you on your pet’s best interest. They have demonstrated compassion and empathy when I’ve had to make hard decisions regarding my babies’ care.
Donna Laughlin
I had to do a unbearably hard thing today I had to say goodbye to my Sammy Cat, but Dr. Patel and her staff went out of their way to be amazingly kind and compassionate and provided me with the best service I could have asked for. I highly recommend Dr. Patel her kindness is true and she has a wonderful and caring heart.
Angela Miller
Dr. Jette has been absolutely amazing! She’s been by far the most patient with my anxious dog and is incredibly understanding about his situation. I’ll be recommending this vet to everyone I know!!
Alley Newman
Shaffer Animal Hospital is outstanding. I have been bringing my pets, dog, cats and ferret for many years. Dr. Patel is patient with my high strung dog and challenging kitties. She is knowledgeable, always giving the best recommendations and advice!
Sue Singer
Nearly 8 years ago I brought my German Shepherd puppy in to Shaffer Animal Hospital to see Dr. Gerrish and I have been bringing her to Shaffer ever since. From day one, Dr. Gerrish and the Shaffer staff treated my pup as if she were their own, loving on her to make sure her vet experience was positive (Mallie would wait with her nose pressed to the door to the back until Dr. Gerrish would come in). Now, they treat both of my German Shepherds and I would not bring them anywhere else. Money can’t buy the compassion and love they show for my animals and the care they provide is top notch. Thank you, to everyone at Shaffer Animal Hospital, for taking such good care of my pups.
DeAnn Gurney
We take all our animals here and the staff is always very friendly and courteous. I like that we always see the same veterinarian, Dr. Gerrish, and that she knows all five of our cats names, They always try to work with us to keep the costs as low as possible without sacrificing care for the animals.
Anthong Tiefenbach
I have been going there since the day they opened. I believe they really care about your pets. They just saved one of my dogs who had to have major surgery!

Denise Thompson
Shaffer is the ABSOLUTE best EVER!!! They truly love my babies Kimber and Kane! They are ALWAYS there for us when we need them and we have some high maintenance furbabies! I cannot say enough good things about everyone there! Everyone is so great, positive and loving! Our vet is Dr. Patel (or Dr. Atel as my 3 year old calls her!) and she is beyond every definition of the word wonderful! She was made to be a veterinarian!
Sarah Reilly
Shaffer is by far the best animal hospital around. Everyone, from the veterinarians to the front desk, are caring. They go above and beyond. Early last year, my dog had a questionable polyp. Dr. Patel was able to refer me to a specialist who removed it, and it turned out to be cancerous. All my follow up visits have been at Shaffer, every 3 months. Dr Patel takes her time to give Sully a thorough exam and she is extremely gentle and caring with him. He is not afraid to come to the vet’s office because they give him lots of love (and treats) to comfort him. My dog is my family and I wouldn’t trust him with anyone else..
Miranda Green
The people there really love animals. You can see it and feel it. I would absolutely recommend their services and their team.
Becky Shade-Bejte
The entire staff of Shaffer Animal hospital is wonderful, professional, courteous, and compassionate. Dr. Patel is amazing with my animals and always spends one on one time with me to discuss the best course of action to keep my furry friends healthy and happy. I truly couldn’t ask for a better animal hospital, Shaffer is one of a kind! Thank you all for everything that you do!
Lia M
Not only did Shaffer Animal Hospital help us get our two kitty’s, they always take such great care of them every time we’re in and even after we leave. The staff is very transparent and explain everything every step of the way so we always know what’s going on. From ease of appointment making through the app and the amazing service we receive once we’re there we will alway trust the staff and the Drs with all current and future fur babies!
