Welcome to Dougherty Veterinary Clinic

Professional & Respectful Medical Care
Canine, Feline, Small Mammal, Exotic & Avian Species


At Dougherty Veterinary Clinics we are dedicated to the medical and surgical care of companion animals as well as educating their caregivers. To that end we habitually schedule appointments for 30 minutes or longer, if needed, for more complicated cases. It has been our tradition to have a comprehensive series of visits for puppies and kittens not only to assess their health and well-being but to train their owners in their lifelong care.

Dougherty Veterinary Clinics is dedicated to the "cradle to grave" care of our patients. This may include well patient exams, ill animal exams, and emergent care exams during the day. It will also, at a time yet determined, involve the anguish of when to mercifully end the life of an animal companion we dearly love.
